    Dd and ds both are getting 6v hummers at 250ish each via layby, then Bobalong buddies for 40 each and that's it. So $580 all up...
    There is now way I would spend this without the use of layby... I usually do the kids shopping around May/June.
    Our families go overboard when it comes to the kids, so We just get them 1 big thing each to open at home and one to open at pops house.

    Dd1 is getting a TV, camp chair, sleeping bag, blingles, a small Lego set, roller skates and a Smiggle case

    Dd2 is getting a bike, my first Lego, camp chair, sleeping bag, small toy planes, a small toy car, magnetic drawing set.

    This is nothing compared to what the grand parents spend. MIL has tamed down after asking her to but my mum hasn't. They both got a plastic tub each filled with goodies such as glow pillow pets, slushy cups, a toy, clothes and drawing stuff from MIL. I know my mum has gone over board again on them. More than we spend on them.

    About $200 if that??

    She's getting a Lego table (I'm making it from an Ikea trofast.) Plus a book, and some little toys for her stocking and some bananas in pyjamas pyjamas.

    About $150 on DS.

    He's getting a teepee and wooden play stuff to accompany the play kitchen he is getting from my parents.
