I just placed my first AG order. Yay for free shipping! I still need to buy a few more clothes on etsy and my dolls life. But I ordered the dolls, hair brushes, the wheelchair and a pj set for each doll.

Now to think of where to hide it!

DD9 got this one for her birthday this year and she loves it. It's adjustable so the table can "grow" with the child. It was a good purchase for us!

I'm narrowing down DD's list so I can place my order this week! I ordered some clothes from a site called sew dolling. They have a ton of stuff and good prices too!

Got the bus drivers and speech therapist done today, I got a fleece throw for one driver, a thermal mug for another (I'll add some hot chocolate mix), and another fleece throw for the therapist.

I also ordered my DH a new Timex watch. He likes them and it seems like he needs a new one ever couple years.

I'll check out that site too. I was looking at the my dolls life and comparing it to the AG outfits. Since the AG outfits come with shoes and sometimes tights and headbands I'm thinking about ordering more from them. At least I know the clothes will hold up and they should have great resell value later on ebay or Craig's List.

On another note - does anyone know how to find authentic AG used clothes on ebay? I did several searches and can't find much of the AG brand that's used.

SOME of the outfits on sew dolling come with shoes. I got DD a complete tap outfit and a complete rock & roll outfit. Just have to hunt around & read . They are really nice and made well.

I just placed my AG order. Thank GOD for free shipping. I am not just about finished shopping for DD. Have a few little things to get her, mostly stocking stuffers.

Now on to everyone else!

Sew dolling has adorable stuff but hardly anything for Bitty Twins or Bitty Baby. I think they only had 1 or 2 outfits left. Anyone order from Dreama and have an idea re the quality there? They seem to have a lot more in terms of Bitty Twins/Baby clothing.

My girls all love mocassins from Payless, they are on sale right now, $15.99 for children sizes and $16.99 for adults. Have them shipped to your local store for free, and use code 78443 for an extra 20% off. Just ordered 3 pair for $42.00 w/tax! Great deal!

If anyone is interested in the Razor flash rider Amazon has it this morning for $77. That's the lowest price I've seen, it was $89. Keep in mind that their prices change fast so if you're going to order it don't wait.

I know Santa is thinking of the new Little People Disney castle, carriage, and figures for YDD, and the Toy Story toys may be on YDS's list.
Love this! Told DH abt your list, he loves it too.

We've started the buying!

DD4 turn 5 in Dec, so we are buying for both her birthday and Christmas. For her bday, I ordered her a subscription to Kiwi Crates. Every month they send you a box with one or two projects and all of the supplies. I'm very excited to receive our first crate. At Costco, I picked up a Playdoh set and a Minnie Bowtique set. We also have a few books hidden away.

For her and DD7mos, I splurged on the Little People castle set with princes and princesses. I figured it was something both of them could play with and enjoy in their own way.

I'm having trouble thinking of things for DD7mos... We have all of ODD's toys so we have plenty in that dept and clothes too. I might just get her some books.

Happy shopping!

I've been following this thread from the beginning, and love all the ideas I'm getting for my DD5. Every year, I try to adhere to the "want,need,wear,read" concept from us, and 3 gifts from Santa. But boy, it's getting tough to stop shopping for her, I have so many wonderful ideas (or so I think). Thankfully, her birthday's in February, so I'll be able to split this stuff up between Christmas and her birthday.

So far, I have...
Baby Butterscotch
Friends Legos (the Horse stable and the Riding School)
Madagascar 3 BlueRay
Furby
and the big one, Nintendo 3DS XL...
plus little stuff to fill her stocking and round out the categories above.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend 3DS or DS games for a 5, almost 6 yo girl? We're going to disable the 3D feature in the beginning, so the 3D part isn't necessary for right now. She loves horses and Kindergarten. I just want to get 2 - 3 games for her to open up, so she can play right away. Then we will let her pick her own games after that. I've read that Mario Party is a good one? Any suggestions?? Are there any accessories we need to get right away, or can we live with the system as is?

Thanks - Brenda
