Ours would have to be the Karaoke! My poor ears, but it was such a huge hit not just with our kids, but the visitors too.
Also the Furby was popular and the craft.

DS - electronic scooter from grandparents
DD - Tankini which was used as gymnastic leotard, on waterslide and on all day waiting for pool to be set up (which couldn't happen)

DD has spent the most time with a $5 Crayola colouring pack.
DS LOVES his Skylander game.

well both of them got PSP's so thats the most played with thing, but DS has been very busy building lego sets and DD loves her monster high dolls.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 08:10 AM
Star Wars Lego, probably just had the edge from the other stuff, not by much though.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 08:15 AM
DD - Her fijit and nail decorating kit.
DS - the wrapping paper and his push along walker thingy.

DS- cosy coupe, hot wheels cars, $10 walking robot
DD- a pink rattle

My 2yr old DD ADORES her Giggleasaurus her dad gave her. And the dolls house went down well too. But not with the dolls that came with it, her dinosaurs live in it lol.

We got DS a trampoline and he loved it but he's upset today because its raining and we're not letting him go out on it right now.
He also loves the books he got. A Thomas the Tank Engine book, The Lorax and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. He's such a little book worm. The Lorax is his favourite movie and we watched the Grinch on Christmas Eve, so he's really connected with the books.

Together? The trampoline.
Individually, it was the Skylanders Giants, the Spiderman racing car set, the enormous noisy Steam train set and the playdough.

Lego. Our son got the 1600 piece Lego box from his grandparents for his birthday (Christmas Eve) so that has gotten the most airtime over birthday, Christmas and so far today as well.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 08:32 AM
DD - her new hockey stick with glitter hockey ball (so her!) Smiggle stuff was pretty high on her list as well.
DS1 - the $1 slime in his stocking. His minecraft lego came a close second
DS2 - the slime and his new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. Minecraft lego also rather popular
All got ereaders that they like, but because the weather is nice, they are preferring to run around outside.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 08:54 AM
RoboFish were by far the biggest hit here for DD 4 years.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 09:01 AM
Trampoline was very popular until DD strained a muscle in her back. I feel so sorry for her because she keeps hopping on and then bounces, winces and starts crying. She really wants to bounce!!!
Posted 26 December 2012 - 09:03 AM
DD loves all her toys but the Hello Kitty cafe truck is a huge hit, as well as Lalaloopsy house and Peppa pig playhouse.
DS loved his lego, skateboard and Goosebumps books.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 09:03 AM
Big Pink - a doodle book and a Barbie wardrobe things
Little Pink - some write on wipe off practice writing cards, the Doc McStuffins playset is also a huge hit, not sure how long it'll be before the tiny instruments are lost though
Mr 13 - not sure, he is actually wearing a cheapo Big W T shirt I bought, that I honestly thought he'd sneer at as it doesn't have a name plastered all over it so I guess that is rating along with the Typo Ipad Case.

A little pop up tent/cubby. DD, nearly 2, has been playing in it all the time. And keeps trying to take her new little kitchen/oven/stove set in there too.
Posted 26 December 2012 - 09:12 AM
My nan gave DD1 a Dora wheely bag which is also a backpack. It was the hit of the day! Today's favourite is the Thomas train set but only because she hasn't yet spotted said bag!
Posted 26 December 2012 - 09:13 AM
DS spent most of the day building, playing with and redesigning his marble run. And reading the collection of UK comic annuals that the ILs sent him. Once he finishes, I can read them!
DD played with lots of things, but she really liked her fairy costume and the sparkly purse that DS got for her ($1 from the school fete white elephant stall).

Their iPad mini's were always going to be a big hit, but apart from that #1 loves his flick trick bikes, for #2 it's the Trash Pack scum drum and for #3 it's the Trash Packs.
They've had a variety of trash packs for a while and they still play with them often. We knew the new ones would be a hit.

DS 1 - loves his atlas and tram (6yrs)
DS 2 - loves his dinosaurs book and knights (4yrs)
