    Best I got was a Robot money box, identifies coins you put in and speaks a lot, wakes up, lights up and speaks when you go near. Also works as an alarm clock. Nice style too, black with blue LED eyes that flicker when he talks.

    My 2yr old loves it, spent ages putting in a big pile of 1p & 2ps, then I emptied it out and he did it again, spent more time on it than all his own toys.

    Didn't get any really bad ones for once...

    Buying myself a Pinball machine as pressie to myself once I get all my overtime thru.:D

    Saw Slankets in the cheapo shop at Arndale (Manc) v.nearly got one for my Mum but thought she might think it was too Granny.

    edit: checked the Firebox link. I think I saw a cheapo rip off cos they were only a tenner. Cosy lookin garms, still.
