Not sure of the exact value but
DD4 is getting an ipad mini plus accessories so prob about $400 all up as her main present and then stocking fillers probably up to $100 in value
DS2 is getting a ride on tractor and car race track so prob only $200 in value and then the same $100 value for stocking fillers
then as a combined present they are getting a jumping castle/slide so $300 and dvds and board games so prob an extra $5-600 all up including the slide.
so all up prob over $1300 but they are worth it and we buy bits and pieces all year so its not a big strain come xmas time

Dd1 & dd2 around $250 they got Lego, monster highs, zelfs, art packs, DVDs ect plus a few new outfits, undie & singlet sets and a new bag for next year ( normally not a fan of school stuff for Xmas but they wanted an adventure time one so at $50 each I thought why not)

I spent over $2000 on my 2 kids.
I must say that we have no other family so everything comes from me and so I didn't really go overboard although I wanted to.
They are getting a wiiU and a ps4. 12 games. 2 controllers per console. 2 big lego sets each. Beach stuff and school gear.
