What are you buying your child for Christmas?

I need ideas for ds(6) and dd(nearly 3). I tried asking ds what he wanted-several times and he just says "cars". Well I can't really buy JUST cars!

  • This is what I got my 7yo boy

    some books on chess
    a magic set (huge box, Amazon $30, hope it's good)
    lego set
    a couple of k'nex sets or something like that that I got good deals on two months ago
    had my own dad and SM send him books (he loves to read)
    DH got him a slingshot, a nerf gun, a bike helmet, some "soft-air" gun or something
    a new robe
    new calendar

    His big present is a bike

    I guess we overdo but I love buying him stuff ..and usually DH doesn't buy anything except the big present.....

  • how about a race track to go with all those cars. I have bought one already for my boys. They seem to be on sale everywhere. Games they both can play like Candy land, uno. We love books so my boys always get a big stack of new books.
