Re: Your kids Favorite Christmas Gifts... Any Shockers?

DS was pleased with just about everything. He is a very grateful kid. Although he is in his sleeping bag at the moment watching Rescue Bots and holding his Rescue Bot so I guess those were both hits. He also spent a solid 2-3 hours putting together his Fire Transport Lego set.

DD was feeling pretty sick yesterday so she really only played with everything a little bit but she did take her Rainbow Dash and her comic book to bed with her.

Ds1(6) is the powerwing scooter he got. Seriously, the thing is awesome an I wish I had an adult sized one. Even my 2 yr old can do the movement to get it moving!
Ds2(2) loves his spiderman footie pjs that have mesh wings between the arm and body.

Re: Your kids Favorite Christmas Gifts... Any Shockers?

We haven't done Christmas with my in-laws yet, but so far my 13 month old has been stuck to her Rody like her butt is super glued down, and my almost 3 year old hasn't stopped making beautiful music on his new harmonica while riding his new bike around the living room. It's kind of chaotic here.

The winner so far seems to be his Beyblades battle dome. He played with it ALL day yesterday.

My daughter (11) loves her new American Girl dolls. She was hoping for one but my parents got her one and we bought her one as well...she definitely didn't expect that. The gift that totally shocked her was her first Coach bag with the matching wallet from my parents! The dolls have kept her attention though.

My son (6) is having a ton of fun putting together his new LEGO sets as well as playing on his new 3DS. He seems to prefer the Star Wars and Angry Birds games.

We knew she would love the kitchen, but our cousin got her a toy blender with (flexible, safe) blades that actually spin. It was totally the sleeper hit of the season!

Re: Your kids Favorite Christmas Gifts... Any Shockers?

I thought surely he'd like his iPad the best, but as it turns out he's much more excited about the new trampoline and the GeoTrax that we brought out last week (that he's owned several years and was a hand me down from one of DH friends) than anything else.

Re: Your kids Favorite Christmas Gifts... Any Shockers?

DD (8yo) got an original, hand-me-down DS that she loves. She only plays with it for 10 minutes at a time though. Her new My Little Ponies are what seems to be keeping her attention. I expected her to like them though.

DS1 (5yo) loves his Magnatiles. They were his favorite toy in preschool so it's not a shock. What is surprising the the amount of time he's spent building with them.

DS2 (3yo) loves his Plan Toys pirate ship from my dad. I thought he'd like it but the kid is in love. His favorite toy from DH and me is the magnetic fishing puzzle and DD's ponies.

DH was very happy with his marble cheese slicer. He's wanted one for awhile and I was able to keep it a secret, never been able to do that before.

My most unexpected gift was from DH. He bought me a new microwave, our old one had broken months ago.

Everything was well thought out. And no one bought stuff for the kids that they won't play with.

12 month old DS loved the boxes most, but is also enjoying his dump truck and the Sesame Street blanket his great aunt made him.
