Santa bought the boys Transformer gear (small toy, book and costume) to replace the dodgy versions Nik bought for their birthday in Malaysia. We gave them active and co-ordination gear (totem tennis, badminton set, pool toys, diablo, kids chop sticks) and the practical (kids scrabble, new water bottles for school, flip flops, Spiderman underwear). The fun pressie was from each other - a monster truck for Alex and a fire engine for Taj. Both are remote control and both have mute buttons (yay for us). Lucky I stocked up on batteries last week. Kids tool belts from the grandparents are a huge hit. There were a ridiculous number of parcels to open which didn't cost much, which is good as we've been focussing on experiences and doing things vs owning more stuff. Boys are great at packing up things they're no longer using and donating. I know what we'll be doing again before they start school at the end of January!!
