Stocking Stuffers
coltonsmommy posted:
I remember seeing a post a few weeks ago about stocking stuffers but can't find it.

My DS will be 5 in February. He loves cars, fire trucks, construction vehicles, books and Batman. We have tons of matchbox cars so he doesn't need any more.

In the past, I've gotten him things from the dollar bin at Target, but they've quickly been forgotten. This year, I want to get him things he'll actually use/play with.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

My 6 and 3 year old are both getting little LED flashlights, a Matchbox bi-plane, a holiday PEZ w/candy, some Model Magic clay, a Spin toothbrush and a pack of glow in the dark bracelets/necklace.

DS is also getting a paperback book, a Hex bug and a mini Hogwarts train lego. DD2 scored a Little People Wheelie, a ZuZu pet and a small book about puppies.
