What did you get your 6 yr olds?

Oh look, it's broadly a place to talk about special occasions, party tips and to swap present ideas but let's be perfectly honest, this forum is here because I want to get excited about CHRIIIIIISTMAS from about June onwards.

What did you get your 6 yr olds?

H's birthday is soon. It's going to be special to make up for the crap one she had last year.

Just wondered what you all got your 6 year olds?

Frozen dolls - Elsa, Anna and Kristoff! Some other bits and pieces - a colour-by-numbers book, a first piano tunes book, reading books, etc.
Stompy's birthday is 3 weeks later, and she similarly just got small-ish bits and pieces, but soon, we are going to get them a playhouse or swingset for the garden which they know is a joint present that is partly for their birthdays.

Mine got Lego, various dinosaur related stuff, knee and elbow pads for his bike-riding and books. But his favourite present was a last-minute impulse buy - a camouflage back pack for him to take on his pretend Dino hunts! I only got it as I was fed up of him filling his school back pack with random exploring items. I will be impulse buying more often in future as he LOVED it.

Not sure much of that helps. One thing he has really enjoyed since Christmas is a magazine subscription.

ETA my 3 year old got a dolls house (of sorts) for her birthday and the six year old thought it was pretty cool.
Now proud Mummyto3 little crazies!

My dd is 6 in a couple of months and she has asked for a 2 wheeled scooter, roller skates, a princess glitter globe and a bigger pram for her dolls as she's too tall for the one we've got. I've also got a list of books I think she'll like, longer novel type books that she can grow into hopefully.

I also like the idea of a day out somewhere or some kind of experience like zoo keeper for a day or something.

P got a new bike at 6.

I think he and B are getting a slide/climbing frame for their 7th and 4th birthdays respectively.

We went to the zoo and stayed in a hotel overnight. Our DD gets loads of stuff from various people so we mainly give outings and experiences as gifts now.

We got DD1 a ukulele for her Christmas, for her birthday she got a maxi micro scooter. She got a bike in the summer last year but that would also be a good present.

I've not bought them yet but really like these Lottie dolls: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_nos ... ottie+doll

Otherwise books, crafty kits, and DVDs seem to be her favourite things.

Scoot has asked for the same bow and arrow set that one of BC's girls had for Christmas - he saw it on facebook and was smitten ( with both girl and archery set I think :wink: )
Will also get some lego and a few books.
