Oh my, I didn't know Furbies were back :eek: I remember them the first time round, my daughter was desperate for one and we had right problems finding one for her but we did and she loved it for years. I must admit it was very cute and interactive so I would assume they have even improved on that now.

:lol: I remember playing with hers. If your daughters are into interactive and cute I would imagine they would love them, just taken a look at the new ones - wouldn't mind one myself :eek: - might have to buy one for my unborn Grand-daughter and look after it for her until she's old enough to appreciate it :lol:

Also, are they tomboys or girlygirls? One tiny little pres that goes down really well, if they don't already have them, or have used them, are curly drink straws. Cheap pres, Get some fridge/stove/water heater boxes, buy paints, twinkly/shiney material, and make a castle/fairy house to play in. Paint pink or fake stone walls, do windows, portcullis, drawbridge, or paint green outside cave, with jewels on ceiling, etc., send them in with torches.

You can do it with them, or do it for them. I get sad that so much money has to be spent.

My DD is 4 nearly 5 . I've got her , ds games, lelli kelly shoes, sylvanian house with family's and other sylvanian bits, Huggle buddy, Crayola bits, moonsand , Cinderella pumpkin carriage and Cinderella /prince set to go in it and a Furby.

That is to be split between Christmas and her birthday which is just after.

The furby worked out as £35 as i did 3 for two at argos and got a £10 voucher back. So sold one for £40 and then me and my sister kept one each and split the voucher. Sylvanian bits have all been picked up at at least half price throughout the year :eek:

If they're getting a Nintendo DS, maybe you could get something crafty. When I was 6 years old I really got excited for Christmas because I liked the little crafty presents I received and the toys. See if they like crafty things.

I am in the same boat. My littlest has ber birthday the week before too so she has an INNOTAB for that.

Mine loves crafting so i thought i might just hit Hobbycraft and get her a whole trunk of stuff. Should keep her busy :) I bought my eldest a really cool sew it yourself monster thingy last year but it was quite complicated and we never finished it.

Moon Sand is pants !! Play dough wins hands down or better still some modelling clay in with the craft stuff ;)

She got lots of Sylvannian last year and she loves it (my Mum and Dad bought her the motorbike, my dads a biker :D )

Bratz seem popular ??

This year i told them both they are getting an orange and a lump of coal because i spent all the Christmas money on a new puppy :eek: :p :D

Any ideas for a 9 year old boy would be great :crazy:
