Well, it's the week after Christmas, and it's time to look at how the new toys are doing.
At six, for the first time, the heavy-hitting, expensive presents have outranked the cheap stocking-stuffer type gifts.
Most popular presents this year:
Seriously, the girls have been riding for hours every day since. A Christmas vacation saver. For real.
Second place goes to the Kidzoom cameras that also have games and a voice modulator. The girls take them everywhere.
Next up came the karaoke machine, followed closely by the archery stuff which was really just an upgrade from their birthday present of bows and arrows which they loved.
This is loud. We need to buy karaoke CDs. I can't wait. Yay.
Uno has been a surprise hit with three 2-hour games having already been played.
Now for the worst.
Very surprising fails are the tablet video games and the new TV (just a 32-incher). I'm guessing their stock will go up as the bike/puppy excitement wanes.
The walkie talkies would be a hit. If I could figure out how to make them work..
The Play Doh hasn't been touched, and the six-billion-piece Frozen activity sets were happening just long enough for me to have to unwrap the pieces, They now stand ignored.
In all, the girls had a very excellent Christmas thanks to our generous family members and friends.
