Yeah.....I can 100% guarantee it is turd.........TURD.......

I am voting this cold because I saw one........I saw it when I bought them........MY GAWD I BOUGHT THEM.........and I cannot describe the pure, hatred I had for it, just from the look of it......it wasn't even open.....its horrible.........is it rational to hate this?


But you know what? Joking aside, despite my best efforts at steering my girls towards more wholesome ideas, they chose to put these on their Santa lists................so yeah, I did oblige. Because Santa and we haven't reached THAT age yet.

Thankfully we have plenty of much more meaningful presents for the girls to counteract any disappointment from this crap. But knowing my luck, they will love this nonsense.

But just to clarify, your assumption about the target market of parents is quite wrong.

1. I am not lazy. I make people on speed look dead.
2. My imagination would scare you. Much scary.
3. I know my kids. They are crazy, inspirational and best kids. Best of all. Fact.
4. I can indeed be arced wrapping.......it teh BEST
5. Spending money on meaningless crap. HUKD - member. Chek


What glorious, meaningful, inspirational and if I am being honest, quite overwhelming presents are you buying your children then?


Are you sponsoring a water fountain for some struggling villages in 3rd world countries on their behalf?

Are you perhaps donating cash to some local homeless drop in shelters to provide a warm Christmas day dinner?

Maybe some hand carved wooden figurines made by children learning a craft to provide for their family?

Maybe some rainbows? Or unicorns......real........living............U N I C O R N S




Or did you just go with an XBOX?

I've seen similar on social media, with a picture showing there's next to nothing of value in it

disgraceful product.

absolute tatty guff

The only people who must LOL about this is the manufacturer, probably contains less than a $1 worth of product at production value. Disgraceful.

The Nintendo was really good, and you could see what you was getting for your money. £55 is a lot of money to spend, especially since you dont even know what your getting. I wouldnt spend that much on a mystery gift. It reminds me of those dodgy shops that opened up and you'd buy mystery boxes that you wasnt allowed to open until you left the shop, so no one else there could see what over priced rubbish you just bought

Great post to be fair!

Mine are 4 (boy) & 7 (girl); respective bithdays on boxing day & xmas eve so present selection is difficult to say the least.... but I still wont buy this even if they ask for it!

I' rather make a surprise ball for them with sweets, trinkets, tricks, books, stationary, toys etc...d

Seeing as you've asked, presents I've purchased include....

Football & concert tickets (we can go together)
Hobby grade RC car (we can enjoy this together)
Laptop (she loves helping me on mine)
Real tools for the boy
pogo stick
Lego
Football strips
books
diary
board games
Scooter
hot air balloon ride
those sh1tty finger monkeys
torches (they like mine)
craft kits
Guinness BoR
DVDs
magnetic putty (and magnets)
Silver bullion coins
Drayton manor visit
Watches
Guinea pig (and accommodation)



We make xmas crackers together every year ; inside we've put indoor fireowrks, lip gloss, sweets, mini torches, pens, screaming balloons, jokes....

More importantly, I've booked 2 weeks off work and I'm spending every single day playing with them!

Tried and failed to get a REAL LIVE UNICORN

I only put this up so as the parents who children are looking for it don't have to pay stupid prices from ebay as they have been sold out everywhere for ages

From one parent to another.....good on you.

At least you came back

Hey....we have different approaches, what can I say.

Good list although we have already crossed an awful lot of that off too past Christmases.

Happy Christmas bud
