Christmas is getting closer

Have you even thought about Christmas yet?......  People tend to ignore it until every shop is covered in lights and tinsel. I was in Wakefield town on Saturday when I noticed that the Card Factory has already got their Christmas cards on sale!! Do people buy cards this early? Don't get me wrong I like to be prepared I already have most of Jared's presents, when you have a child it is so much easier to get bits and bobs and stash them. Especially with the price of a toy that they will get bored with after a year. So what I though I would do is look at what is the most popular on the kids wish lists and then show you lovely people where you can get it from. Now I don't mind second hand toys as long as they are in good working order, but I will let you know if the cheapest from new and used. 

Now this first one seems to be being on the top toys lists year I remember when it was 'THE' toy to have when I was little its the Furby the price new is around £75 it is the new Furby Boom. The cheapest are on Ebay and they are the ones from America but worth a look if your planning on getting one. 

Have you seen them new fish you can get? No! Well you can get these new robotic fish that work in water these are on Jared's Christmas list (I wrote the list lol) he loves fish but I don't want real fish and his fish lamp broke so these are the solution I hope. You can get the Robo fish playset in fairness it isn't that expensive the £20 is the main price that shops are selling this set at the cheapest I have found is again Ebay you can pick it up new for £14.99. The set only contains one fish so you could also buy a pack of Robo fish to put in a stocking these are selling £6/7. 

This next one I really want to get Jared but it is suitable for boys and girls. Its the funny laughing animals that have been advertised, there is a chicken a monkey and a rabbit. I have looked everywhere for this rabbit and I can not find it anywhere I have even emailed the company as I will only buy one if it is the rabbit lol. These are selling for £14.99 which is a fair price. 

This year there is the release of the Xbox one and the PS4. I'm guessing a few of you have one of these on your list or at least your boyfriend or teenage son. I'm an Xbox lover so the Xbox is the one for me (no pun intended) Now I'm not fully sure on prices of either consoles as it keeps changing, but I have put a deposit down for the Xbox one. If the neither of the consoles are on your list but your a gamer I'm sure some of the new games due to be out soon are. We have the new grand theft auto which I can not wait to play but if I get it at Christmas I will need to wait as I'm at my mums this year. 

I don't know if it's because I have a boy that I don't notice the girl toys but I'm sure this year the majority of the toys are for boys?! I have been asking my sisters (11 & 8) what they want. Now Molly (8) she loves one direction so she is easy to buy for but then she asked for an Xbox and a TV also The Sims 4 I'm not sure when that is out but I guess if it's in time for Christmas that would be good. Trinity (11) has asked for a Laptop and Minecraft things. My sisters aren't very very girly but Molly loves dolls and other little girl toys but she hasn't seen any so far that jump out at her. While I have spent hours looking for toys for children the market has been dominated by boys toys and the odd toy that girls might like but I wouldn't say is great. Would be nice to hear what is on your list, I love looking for a bargain so if you don't have the time to search for your bargain let me do it. 

If you want me to find you a bargain price please email jadelikessheep2@gmail.com with the exact name of the item you want and I will try my best to find the cheapest for you.
