I didnt as we cant afford it. He got a racetrack from Santa and a toy drum set from Mom and Dad, cash from the grandparents...but his big sister and fiance spolied my son rotten! A laptop! for an 8 year old :o.
Including a membership for some popular mutliplayer online game. My son loves it and I have to struggle with him to have him adhere to time limits.
Just wait till my grandkids come and I can repay the favour, HAHA!
