Will be watching with interest, dd doesn't even know what she would like sad.gif she loves craft and drawing and has never really played with toys.

At this stage we are considering a Kindle or a camera.
Either that or we will get an electronic piano for the whole family.

Santa will likely get her some new undies, a lunchbox, a craft kit of some type, some lollies, maybe some new togs.

DD is 7.5 and she will be getting:

  • Electronic piano (booking in introductory electronic piano lessons for next year)
  • camera
  • magic set
  • couple of DS games, including a chess one
  • a proper wooden chess set
  • a human body game from AG
  • beanbag
  • and a few other bits and pieces.

She'll get things from Santa as well.

It's been difficult this year because I usually depend on her Santa list to make sure I haven't missed anything, but she hasn't done one this year.


I forgot to add in the Narnia series, and I'm not sure whether I'll give her the rest of the Fairy books in one hit or whether I'll dole them out one by one.  original.gif

super soaker water guns
a zipline to rig up in one of the paddocks (DH re-living his childhood)
a white paper shade lamp and some art inks (decorate your own bedside lamp)
new cozzie
probably a few small pink plastic pieces of junk that I will complain are left on the floor/clean this mess up now/ if you don't put it away I will vacuum it up.

biggrin.gif I love this thread! I haven't got many ideas this year my 5 and 7 year olds.

Here's what we DO have:

Totem tennis
Jenga game
Pogo stick (can you still get these!?)
Trampoline for all three kids
iTunes voucher
A few items of clothes...

Pretty boring now I look at it. Might have to go to Australian Geographic store for some excitement I think  wink.gif

Posted 12 November 2012 - 10:00 AM

Tea cup pig toy and a display unit for it.
Something dinosaur related as she loves t-rex's
Big pack of books written with sight words so she can read herself to sleep (she loves doing this)
Charlottes web on book and DVD, but she wants the classic version only
That's the list so far. Will probably hit toys r us for some big exciting colourful plastic toy in a large box as that always excites her on Xmas morning.
Oh and lots of stocking fillers including kids jewellery, chocolate etc. I love Christmas!

My DD is 7

I can't think of one big thing she'd like for Christmas so I am getting her a range of activity/crafty type things
- Something from Smiggle no doubt
- I think I ordered about half this store
- A finger print book
- Maybe a set of Derwents?

Santa Stockings are a bit more home made this year with things like
- ribbon wands
- stuffies
and books!

I'm not really feeling very organised...

I've been grabbing books and activity things from the scholastic book club throughout the year. I also have some DVDs that she has been asking for. The big thing she is going to get is the Dinosaur HQ from lego along with the triceratops. I am sick of all the toys in the house currently so also got her a penguin adoption. She gets a toy with that, a certificate, entry for her into the penguin parade at Philip Island and regular email updates through the year. Oh, and a birthday card from her penguin. It's the gift that gives through the year LOL

For Christmas she is getting:

Good luck with the shopping!
