Once again my DD has come up with a most interesting request. She is really into pandas right now and so she has asked for... panda underwear! Mind you this is not as odd as some of the things she has come up with in the past couple of years (see prior odd gift threads for other mentions) but I have no doubt she will once again come up with something truly odd before BF. What requests have you gotten or made? I'm especially interested in hearing what anyone who is new to GD has encountered. :)

My Dh was trying to think of something really off the wall for our my family gift exchange. The only problem was what he thought of, I found in a store the next day without really trying to look for it.

Well for the second year in a row my DD7 has placed the task on Santa to find the ultra rare Unicorn. It's funny because she is so innocent and nonchalant about it. She said I knows Santa must have been busy last year and he'll bring it this year. LOL. Her other request was for a puppy to give to her best friend because their dog just passed away. So if anyone sees any great deals on Unicorns or Puppies let me know!

I totally could go for one of these too :D

My three year old daughter really, really wants Thomas underwear, my husband said absolutely not since they only make boy Thomas underwear and told her that it was different than hers, so she couldn't get Thomas underwear, but let's face it, mama is going to get her Thomas underwear even if there are extra little flaps in it..

My oldest daughter asked for a tarantula. I'm terrified of spiders so the mere thought sends me into a panic. I saw a remote control one the other day but even that is a big maybe.

DS6 wants aluminium foil. He loves repurposing our trash for craft projects - boxes, cans, strings, tp rolls, etc. I cant throw anything away without him saying "I wanted to make something out of that!" Well, I don't let him play with my new roll of foil, and apparently the scrapes aren't coming fast enough, so he plans on asking Santa for his very own roll.

So I hope he gets an extra long roll in his stocking!!

Seriously, this is oddly very cool. He's probably going to grow up and be some sort of creative mastermind genius.

Last year my DS12 asked for a bow tie. No where to wear it to, or with, but just wanted a bow tie. He finally got it last week, to wear to the Homecoming dance. Love the story with the foil! :)

My son did that he wanted Dora underware when he was potty training so I bought them even though they were pink but it worked and now he's forgotten about them. Lol

Actually a family here has a pot belly pig as a pet. I had a pet pig as a kid also. THere is a family on the news here with a girl that got a pot belly pig as a bday present. It's housebroken, but the city doesn't allow livestock and doesn't consider it a pet. IT's been in teh news for months.

My son wants a pig. A real pig as a pet...when I try to explain to him that we arent allowed to have a pig as a pet he justs says santa will bring it...oh boy!

I would not mind a pig as a pet but we lived in a deeded community with no live stock allowed and VERY little backyard....but a 4 year old boy does not want to listen to tose facts, he just wants his pig...lol I really hope he is not heartbroken when Santa cant bring it to him...

Maybe you can explain that Santa doesn't deal in rare Unicorns because the world would miss out if only one person owned them LOL

Ironically if you google toddler girl thomas underware---it is quite the hot forum topic. Seems they'd get the hint and start making some!
