    Omggg wrote a rather big reply and it didnt post. Let me try slim it down and try again.

    When DS mentions he wants something that is small and cheap enough we say "maybe Santa will get that for you this year" and plant the seed that way.
    In our house though, Santa buys one small gift and the rest (more expensive) ones are from us. I dont want DS thinking of Santa as some big present machine so remind him that we used to get toys that were MADE (and we'd walk a thousand miles to school and a thousand miles home...in the snow...in bare feet ) and now Santa has a hard job because people are asking for bigger and more expensive things. So DS has learnt to ask Santa for small, cheaper items and is happy when Santa comes through.

    If you can afford to buy it for his birthday maybe tell him you have no control over what Father Christmas delivers but he is a wise old man that will deliver exactly what your son should get. Then, you could maybe follow up with that if SkyLanders doesn't come at Christmas he can have it for his birthday from you guys if he still wants it then. A good lesson in waiting and not always getting what we want. I am having to do it with my DS4 (nearly 5). It's a toughie but he needs to learn.

    Father Christmas can take the heat if he is upset at Christmas time However, I am sure he will be stoked with the bike and camera!

    you could always say that santa was thinking really hard about what you wanted for christmas, he looked all through his workshop and saw this awesome cool toy that he thought you might like better. something along those lines might work. worth a shot anyway. good luck ladies. i have a few years yet till i will have to answer to those so its good to see what im in for.

    We have always said Santa doesn't always bring what you ask for and sometimes he gives you something else instead because he thinks you will like it. It wouldn't be a surprise if you always got exactly what you asked for every year.

    We actually don't do a wish list for Santa unless they do them at school or decide to do them themselves. Then they see Santa usually after I'm already done and might mention something they would like.

    I don't think I will have that problem this year though. DD1 is older and doesn't even really know what she would like but no Santa to worry about there anyway. Then DD2 really really wants......a toy!! LOL And DD3 said she doesn't know.

    Default Re: Santa not bringing what he asked for

    We find telling ds 5 that Santa will choose 1 to maybe 2 things off your list depending on what you ask for as you can't be greedy and expect everything you have on your list otherwise all the other kids around the world will miss out and that wouldn't be fair. This way we can choose things off there for us to give him as well.

    Default Santa not bringing what he asked for

    Santa has to make your stuff all year... Not in the few months before Christmas. Especially not when there's so many kids he has to cater to! Sometimes he can't get you what you ask for... He's already planned your presents and there's only so many ps3s and games to go around... Etc.

    I just explain it like that.

    Default Re: Santa not bringing what he asked for

    We had the whole chat withmiss 5 about how Santa has a lot of kids to look after and it's hard for him to share everything around etc etc... So Santa would be really happy if he could choose 1 or two things off a list of maybe 5, it would make his job much easier.

    Omg it's scary how easily these stories trip off my tongue o.0
