Actually none of them.  A bit miffed that mom sent a bunch of craft things which i have no idea to use so we need to figure out how to create snow globes and use these wheel things for friendship bracelets.

I don't regret anything that I bought my kids for Christmas.  I can't even think of things from previou year that I regret either.  Generally if it is something that would annoy me, I don't buy it.

Last year my son got a drum set I think the next morning be awaken by it I was regretting it lol But in the end it has been a great gift.   This I only had one, we got my youngest son a small quad four wheeler, its too cold for it to be outside so he has been riding around in the house with it.  It's a push button and it is loud and he runs into things, but he loves it.

That is what someone else suggested.  The instructions for snow globes were in japanese with poorly illustrated pictures of what to make with the clay.

Please tell me that the 4 wheeler isn't gasoline powered, but one of those cheap battery powered "Power Wheels" things.

Thank goodness.  I'd hate for someone to be using a gasoline powered 4 wheeler in the house.  That could kill all of you.  My kids have only ever had the gasoline powered ones.
