My daughter got a baby zhuzhu pet and she loves that thing, for some reason. My son got a new set of mini nets from his aunt, and he's obsessed with that. My dd got a cd player as well, and that's very popular with both the kids.

DD got a Zhu Zhu as well as 2 baby zhu zhus with a play nursery and it is by far her favourite. She can chase the Zhu zhu for minutes at a time! (a lifetime for a 2 year old) lol

My youngest son loved his 8 video games, for his Wii, his Dsi, and PS3, only systems that got missed this year were his Xbox 360 and his PSP

Last night he got a g/c to Build a Bear from his Aunt, so he can't stop talkiing about that and he loves his race track that he asked Santa for.

ds is in love with his lego board games, he has 3 of them and even when no one can play he is still down there making up his own games with them

DD loves her legos, Santa brought her the megablocks ones in pink and purple. She loves making "towers" and knocking them down. She is also obsessed with her play make up and nail polish.

Ice skates were the biggest hit for dd this year. Ds got a pair too, but dd is the one that has been skating every day. We didn't know it when we bought this house, but it turns out that the city set up an ice rink right across the street from us and it's open all day and free! Dd also really liked the Caboodles train case and nail stuff she got. Ds's favourite gifts were probably the different Lego sets he got (Ninjago, Star Wars, Halo) and the Hexbugs set he got.

Hexbugs! And this yo yo thing that was in his stocking, it cost me $3.00!

(For the record, all the adults loved it too. We all fought over it on Christmas day, and I was playing with it tonight! Gonna buy them for everyone next year, i think!)

His vacuum cleaner! I knew he would, but maybe if I had thought it through a little more, I would have just gotten him a real one (probably for the same price too!). At least he'd be cleaning my house!

The hexbug set we got was only $20. Came with a good amount of 'tracks' and 2 bugs. Now we can buy more tracks or bugs (although you don't really need to spend money on more bugs).

The yoyo thing I bought at "5 Below" in the states. LOVE that store for stocking stuffers!

dd got a remote control hexbug thing (or should I say dp did?) they play with it ALL the time. She also got two belle barbie dolls that she loves. The cheap doll stroller & car seat is also dragged throughout the house all day.

I am excited for her to see her new wooden play kitchen we bought after christmas - it was on sale and we had a gift card that covered most of it - she will find it when we get to the new house in 2 weeks - daddy is setting it up for her tomorrow.

My niece got that same headband kit and she loves it! Her older sister loves it too!

My son loves his battery operated car. It's super cute to see him riding around on it. Took him a while to figure out he could push a button to make it move, but now that he's got the hang of it he plays with it all the time! He also LOVES the recordable book that my SO and I made him. :)

Sofie loves her little people fairy treehouse. It was the year of the fairy for Sofie. Without talking about it my mom, Ash and I all got her fairy related things.

K loves his Magic Tree House books.

Sawyer has been pooping without rashes in her new covers. She finally grew enough to be in cloth diapers.

We looked from windsor to london for more... we have 7 of them... I went everywhere... shoppers, future shop, eb games, walmart, different electronic stores, staples, canadian tire... zellers... best buy. the malls. nothing... its because you can use all the figures for each machine, you don't have to buy any specific ones except the starter pack...

so if someone sees more please let me know lol.

Have you guys checked out the TRU Express at the mall? I haven't been in, but when I called just before Christmas to see if they carried video games, they said that those were the only kind of video game thing they had.
