I have 3 children. I am totally at a loss as to what to get the kids. I have an 8 y/o boy, 6y/o boy and 5 y/o girl. I aleady have a few wii games, ds games, legos, babydolls, etc.. I still have in my budget about an other 700 that I can spend. What are some of the things that you gusy with kids are getting your kids?

Do you think they're old enough to use a game table like foosball or air hockey, or maybe even a trampoline?

I'm loading up on the 99 cent toys at Goodwill.
All toys are 99 cents through Christmas Eve.

Oh- good idea. We have a trampoline already But Foosball is the type of thing that I am looking for. Something that all 3 kids could all play together and perhaps mom and dad can join in.

Don't they make wish lists? We always used to write a wish list, even when we were too old for santa... just so my parents knew what we wanted

I saw another thread about a play-do cake making set icon_smile.gif Sounds too cute.

I guess that's all they want then.
Keep the $700 for later?
