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.

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.

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.
