Hi Everyone,

Today I was talking to 7 year old DD about what she is going to ask Santa for as we will be sitting down to write the all important letter... and what I have on layby (a Nintendo 3DS XL) didn't even get a mention.

After an extensive conversation and even showing it to her in EB games with gentle coaxing, she still doesn't want it.  sad.gif She says the one that she has is fine (5 years old and tiny screen but still works). Now normally I would be pretty happy about this because she is awesome and not greedy... Her family has been recruited for the other items on her list (only three things she is asking for - what a gem) so Santa is running out of ideas.

The only other thing she has her heart on is a Lego friends set, and of course the Olivia's House is the apple of her eye. I've made a few calls and done some searching and having a lot of trouble finding it for less than $150. I really need some help at this stage. I'm so frustrated!!!

I looked at the Toys R Us US site also, but they must have sold out, and it was an awesome price too.

Big W website has it listed for $98 - not in stock online though, so just put in your postcode to find a store that has it in stock closest to you.

You guys are freaking awesome!!! A few phone calls, cut offs and staff forgetting what I wanted...


Thanks so much everyone. You have made my day and my daughters Christmas!!! And I didn't know you could do that with the Big W thingy at all, so have to have a play of that when the kids are in bed so I can do it next time...
