DD1 got a toy CD player from my aunt and uncle. It plays very tinny versions of nursery rhymes and despite the dolls house, books and puzzles, this CD player is by far the most popular gift. For about 30 minutes we thought the batteries had run flat (yay! I mean oh no!) but alas she had accidentally switched it off.

So what very annoying noisy present has someone given your kids today?

Furby...
I knew what I was in for. But it was between that and a fijit that she wanted and so furby it was.

A recorder to an almost 3 year old. I did tell the giver that There is going to be payback!

A music box that plays an incredibly annoying tune over and over. DD adores it and has been playing it ALL DAY LONG.

Some whistles with the bit that unrolls when you blow it (like at children's parties) and some whistle horn thingies. We gave them to her. She's loving them now that she's figured out how to blow them. The noise isn't annoying us too much but might be annoying our neighbours in our unit block and the ones next door!

We still have to give DD her main present of a portable DVD player with some DVDs. She's been too busy playing with her Santa presents that we haven't actually given her the presents from us yet. I think that she would have been overwhelmed. (She's almost 3yo.) The DVD player will be noisy and annoying but also a sanity saver. DH will be able to reclaim his laptop from her using it to watch DVDs on. Once she has it I'm sure that we will be subjected to listening to Giggle and Hoot over and over and over and over...

I can beat that - Two recorders. I have threatened to leave hem at the in-laws. Otherwise they might just get lost when we pack the car.

No loud pressies here it's been very peaceful in our house


BUT

the neighbours boys have been given a great pressie (not) we think its a ride on police car loud sirens with bells and whistles as all morning we've heard revving and sirens on and off and our yards are huge and far enough apart we usually don't hear their 4 young boys at all.

Luckly its all quiet ended down for the past hour or so

My sister gave DD2 one of those hand shaped "clapping"  toys that you rattle - she loves it

My lovely BIL just gave us an evil grin and said "We thought you'd like it

Ït's payback for all the noisy toys I bought their kids when I was childless

I got my pair (1 and 4) a big box of musical instruments - bells, triangles, drums, tone blocks, clave, more bells, a xylophone, etc.

A whistle shaped like a train, so we have not only had the loud whistle but also DS making loud train noises to accompany it. I must admit we did find it cute for the first few hours wink.gif
Bonus is it also has a bubble compartment so not only is it noisy but it's leaked sticky orange bubble liquid everywhere!

A toy blower vac type thing that sounds like a vacuum cleaner when started. Probably the cheapest toy yet the most annoying and the most played with all day!!

A cheap pink karaoke double microphone with stand. It plays an unrecognisable song and magnifies DD1's voice. (The batteries may mysteriously go flat some time tomorrow ph34r.gif )

All my 3yo wanted was a violin and drum. The only toy violin I could find was a cheap china import from eBay -- sounds dreadful but DD loves it and has been playing it all day. The smile on her face is worth it though.

The other thing she wanted was a drum, that is actually a pleasant sound in comparison to the electric violin being played by a 3yo.

I may have given the most annoying one by accident...
I gave my 3 year old nephew a microphone where you can play Christmas songs or change your voice into an elf voice. I gave it to him first and he didn't care about another gift, just wanted to sing and dance. It was pretty funny though.

A mini keyboard with a microphone! From my childless friends. My husband is already planning what to get their future kids.

Not annoying but loud - I gave my 7yo son an iPod and put some songs on it. He has his headphones plugged in but is singing along loudly!
Only so many times I can hear 'battle scars' but with him singing it is cute, even though it is loud. original.gif

My dad gave DD a 'lets go Diego!' motorised trike. It's okay on it's own, but there's 3 buttons on it, one plays a siren, and the other 2...

Weird loops of Vengaboys songs that got for a minute at a time... odd & annoying!

Two furbies and this dreadful Barbie toy that sings Deck the halls really fast.  And it doesn't stop till you switch it off.  It's driving me bonkers.
