DD 3 1/2 is getting a scooter, butterscotch pony, lots of necklaces/headbands/handbags as she is obsessed with accessorising at the moment, this:

http://shop.kmart.com.au/product/ballerina-bar/115852 along with some Angelina Ballerina DVDs, new clothes and possibly the swimming Mermaid Dora doll.

I've bought DD, who is 3 two days after Christmas:

A 36 piece floor puzzle
A jumbo set of Fuzzy Felt (she loves my 20 year old set and it's great for rainy days)
LeapFrog Scribble and Learn
Woody toy from Toy Story (she LOVES Toy Story).  It has a pull string and says cute Woody things.
I'll probably also get her Buzz and am going to ask my sister to get her Jess.

MIL has bought her a Barbie car, Ken doll and some kind of Dora doll.

DD1 is getting her a My Little Pony that has a brush to look after he mane.

Love that Ballerina Bar, She!  Might pass that idea on to my parents if they ask for ideas.

I also intend getting DD a copy of the new Tinkerbell DVD, but that will most likely be a birthday present.  With her birthday two days after Christmas, I generally just buy stuff and work out what to give her for either Chrissie or birthday at the time.  biggrin.gif

We are thinking somewhere along the lines of a fish or a turtle...I think the fish will be an easier option!!

She has some many toys that really she doesn't need much else so we thought we would broaden her horizons and give her some responsibility.

Lego tub.

That's all so far!  I'm concentrating on DS2's birthday party, but I picked up some lego stuff for all of the children last week.

Miss 4 is getting-

My Little Pony Train set
Littlest Pet Shop Tree House and a set of LPS animals.
Hula Hoop
LPS wall stick-ons
Fairy Costume and tiara.

In her stocking she is getting craft stuff, books, pretend jewelry, handbag and other little things.

We are thinking somewhere along the lines of a fish or a turtle...I think the fish will be an easier option!!

Fish are not that easy to look after. You will need to 'cycle' the tank (run it) for a few weeks before adding fish. Also get the right amount of fish for the size of the tank. Personally I would get your DD something else and a promise that you will get fish after Christmas. Take time setting up the tank properly and your fish will have a better chance of survival.

Well, my nearly 4 and nearly 5 year old DDs are now getting fuzzy felt, thanks to shopalot33 for putting the idea in my head!

Other than that, possibly a my little pony or unicorn type thingy for DD2.

And bikes, maybe. We have the helmets already lol.

Bathers, possibly a book if one catches my fancy.

and that's probably plenty, considering they have birthdays coming up in Jan/Feb.

ETA: DD1 wants a dog. Not happening.

DD is getting so far, a Micro Scooter, Lego, some more wooden Thomas stuff, MLP train set (train obsessed). I'm finding it hard to buy for her, her birthday is a week after Christmas to make matters worse. All she's asked for is her Scooter, a bucket and spade and beach towel.

Hopefully a pair of fun novelty slippers, because getting her to wear slippers is an ongoing battle.

DD 3 1/2 is getting some of those furry frenzy pets and playsets, a car and a combi thing, I've already wrapped them so I've forgotten lol.
They were at toy word for 10-15 for the playset ones which have a pet and 5 for an individual pet on sale. I've read up on them and apparently they're cuter, make cuter noises and last longer than zhu zhu pets. WIN
(they do say to keep both varieties away from the little ones hair so it doesnt get caught in it )

magna doodle, skipping rope and a book.

she has the biggest pile and I think we've only spent about $45 on her biggrin.gif
