    Smile TOYSALES!!!! What are YOU looking for?

    Hi everyone,

    as I walked into our newly refurbished Target store this morning, I literately tripped over a small pile of boxed Lego.
    They have downsized the shop significantly and are now running out of space for the upcoming toy sale. I had forgotten about these toysales and can't believe how fast this year has gone by!

    As I walked through the isles and continued to get more cranky, as I kept tripping over and squeezing myself in between large boxes, I started to wonder what I should be getting for DS as his birthday is only 1 week before Christmas.
    There really isn't anything on my small budget that takes my fancy.

    So, now I am wondering what everyone else will be looking out for? Are there any particular brands of toys or a particular type of toy (dolls, bikes, puzzles, etc) you want?
    If you have a 3yo boy, what will you be getting him?

    DS will be just 3 at Christmas, but is delayed by 6-10 months.

    I would be going puzzles and megablocks/duplo i think.

    I am looking more towards things like ant farm, science experiments and entertainment such as bowling, movie tickets, going away for a day somewhere.

    I am planning on just picking things up as i see them every few weeks when i head towards the shops.

    We are getting DD1 and DD2 a bike and helmet each, DD3 will only be a couple of months old at Xmas so a few baby toys for her.

    Will also be getting some books, art stuff and stuff like that. It's both DDs birthday just after the sales so they will get stuff for their birthdays as well.

    I'm after a trampoline too and I will just have to wait and see for the rest. As far as 3 year old boys go I would say tonkas and sand pits!

    Target is June 21st. Big w and Kmart is June 28th.
