Too much.

I'd save some for Christmas.

Sooooo.....I want to know what he's getting for Christmas?

I tend to go OTT on presents for my kids but that seems like a lot to me even, especially for a 4 year old.

My daughter gets one big thing from us each birthday and that is it. At three it was a bike. At four we got her a clock radio with the ability to put CDs on it. Can't remember for five and six LOL but for her seventh birthday she got a scooter. She gets something smaller like a dvd or a book from her brother

That present list looks more like a Christmas list to me

That's a bit OTT ... That's a birthday and most of Christmas!

I think that's more than enough. He's turning 4. I doubt he'll feel as though he's hard done by with a few less things.

Nope no triplets. Guess I will stop shopping. Xmas is a bit more than this.

My kids would like you to adopt them. They are looking forward to seeing what Santa brings too.

They get one big present (e.g the rollerblades on your list) and then maybe a couple of books.

So...I reckon you've got enough.

That looks like Christmas to me. My poor daughter turned six in October and all she got was a bike, helmet and some books.

Way to much, one, maybe 2 presents for birthday and about what you have there from Santa for christmas. Just remember they expect bigger and better each year, start off slow.....

He asked for 1 car and 1 wrestler so I don't necessarily agree they expect more and more.

Thanks for the feedback.

#18 Monkey_Mind

Posted 26 November 2012 - 10:08 PM

How about a helmet and knee and elbow pads to go with the rollerblades? You left a card off the list too

Unbelievable. Where do people PUT all this stuff??

That's why they neeeeeed two bedrooms per person and three living areas in their mcmansions.

DS has one bedroom, seems to fit his toys just fine

#22 EssentialBludger

Posted 26 November 2012 - 10:23 PM

Looks fine to me. My kids usually get the same amount of stuff if not more. ph34r.gif We go OTT at birthdays and christmas, we don't generally buy toys or anything throughout the year.

#23 shantilly

Posted 26 November 2012 - 10:23 PM

oh wow i thought what the op posted was about the norm for most people. We live in a small three bedroom house my boys share a room. I must admit my husband do go without to get our kids stuff, but disagree about it making them want more.

#24 kpingitquiet

Posted 26 November 2012 - 10:30 PM

Holy wow. Yeah, that'd cover bday, xmas, and probably more, for us. Our kid just turned 2 and all she got from us was a play kitchen, play food and a few pots to go with it, and a book.

Does your child not have grandparents, aunts, uncles etc around? We'd likely get her more stuff if she wasn't inundated by a truckload of gifts from her eight grandparents, and others. We just find she gets more enjoyment out of things when she doesn't have hundreds to choose from.

DS just turned 9 and got a radio controlled car.

Just the car.

I do go a bit more hair brained at Christmas - but most of that is undies, pjs and stationery for school and a significant number of presents are joint so unsuitable for birthdays. But I cannot think of a time when birthdays have been more than one present.

Sorry OP but your list and shacols look like you are raising Dudley Dursley.
