SOLVED - Big Happy Gift Smallish Ticket Item

November 10th, 2008 at 12:08 pm

My shopping list is smiling!

Have been thinking what to give my 8-yo carefree sunny daughter for a big happy gift under the tree this year (especially after she sees the BIG box containing a skateboard ramp for her brother, and nooooo I do not play those 'must give even number of gifts to children' games...)

Short of a live, breathing, soft furry animal pet I come up with Nothing. Not even a big big doll house that wouldn't get used enough and costs too much.

BINGO! She is an accomplished roller and ice skater and wanted Heely's a couple years ago (those shoes with roller skates in the heel). In the past I was unwilling to spend $30 on them. But she's ready! And now I am Big Grin

Here's the solution - pack them in a BIG BIG box which I have saved from getting a couple bar stools earlier in the year.

HA HA!

Not to mention I am soooooooo bent on sticking to low tech, unplugged, healthy activities for the kids as much as possible. Yes, they have their WebKinz and computer stuff, and yes they can plug in some. But this is the balance.

Perfect! He gets the skateboard ramp, and she can zoom up and down on the roller skates.
