They really like everything.

DD#1 loves all her stuff for her bedroom. New quilt set, lamp, pillows and some ornaments. All Owl and Paris themes. She also loves her Hunger Games notebook, pens, bookmark and pin. DD#2 was glad I talked her out of getting DD#1 the Barbie Doll she was insisting she was better even than Smiggle. Lol

DD#2 and DD#3 love their Baby Alive dolls and prams etc. And umm Tinkerbell and that other fairy that fly up.

They all love their new scooters from grandma. Their old ones were way too small for them. Such a shame they couldn't play on them yesterday while with grandma though.

PlayStation Vita is getting a workout by our son & there is craft stuff from one end of the house to the other from our daughter. It's raining today so it's perfect for indoor lazy parents like me.

DD absolutely loves drawing with her new felt pens and sketch pad. It's even better when she is sitting at her new little table and chair, and even better if she also has a new Play School DVD playing on her new portable DVD player. She is 2yrs 11mths old.

She has loved all of her presents, so we're happy.

DS5 and DD2 love everything but the biggest hit, $5 lizard and frog that you throw up in the air and they stick to the ceiling for a few minutes before falling back down- hours of fun!!!

DD (2) - singing Barbie and she's enjoying putting the little board books in and out of their boxes.

DS (4.5) - Spy kit DH got him, although annoyingly the little look backwards shades were broken in the box.

Mummy had lots of fun building DS's Legos sets. original.gif

DD7 is loving her Frirnds Lego and Nikon camera. Taking pics of her brother, flying his helicopter, chasing the dog :/

Scooter, forever clover coloring book and Last minute soft toy for dd1 (6)
Scooter and baby doll for dd2 (2)
The Sylvanians have also had a good workout.

I spent this morning trying to cull enough old toys to make space for the new ones. DH is horrified by how much stuff the kids got!

A $15 hand held  game console from Crazy Clarks, I think someone from EB mentioned it and I bought one for dd2.  She loves it!

Everything's getting a good run here.  The trampoline I expected to be a big hit (yes, my kids are 7 and 9 and only just got a tramp).  But the surprises for me have been:

DD2:  the Sparkle Light up Fairy Barbie which I bought seriously marked down at DJs months ago and had almost forgotted about until I was unpacking the toys Xmas eve.   The wings effect is awesome, especially at night.

DD1: the Zing Air Z Curve Bow.  She loves it.  I think she thinks she's either Merida from Brave or Katniss from The Hunger Games.
