    The Minecraft Tin (ESPECIALLY with stickers!!) and Diary of a Wimpy Kid Deep End are definitely wishlist items for my two boys! Huge Minecraft fans, and Deep End is the only book in the series my 8year old has not yet read. (Bough him the DIY journal for his birthday coming up in December – he has been asking for that).

      Awesome! It’s great to have some ideas lined up of things they would really like. My daughter loves the Frozen: Book and Snow Globe set, she’s still a huge Frozen fan, and we are looking forward to listening to the Ten Minutes to Bed: CD Collection.
