....but it bombed out? Thomas the Train was not a big hit this year for Christmas.

  • Hmmm. My daughter hasn't touched her mini Cooper barbie car yet but it was a busy day after Christmas here we had it again at grandmas.

  • My son still enjoyed his Thomas sets but not as much as the railroad crossing signal (just mentioned in other post). But that was pretty much expected.

  • The four 100 piece Animals puzzles she got at Gma's house. I can't remember the last time she sat & did a puzzle. So not sure why Santa got that for her :p

  • No, and here's the interesting part - it's the first time we didn't ask him for any kind of list. We went entirely by things he'd mentioned more than a month ago and generally related to his interests. He's been running around for 2 days calling it the best one ever, and we only spent a little more than half of what we did last year.

    I wish we'd tried it that way years ago now.

  • Xploderz. I thought since he likes nerf darts so much he would like those. Nope. He grew all the little balls in a cup of water and I am cleaning them up. I thought my daughter would like her Bratzilla but nope. I guess when they watch commercials and constantly say "I want that" I don't know what the really mean.
