    i think that it depends on how well you know the children/parents. normally, i'd say $150 or so.

    MATTEL has big sales every few months. They take cash only at the sales but you can get some steals. I went to the one before xmas and spent $680. I took home 3 HUGE bags of toys, including some Dora, Diego, Hot Wheels & Barbies (some of the barbie's go on sale for $199, regular price $299-349... I paid $100).

    I have a "stash" that I keep in case of a birthday invite for my kids. It works great, so long as you have storage space.

    Depends how close I am to the child. If its someone very near and dear to me I do not think about budget but rather what they would love, a good friend perhaps around 300HK$ and for an acquaintance perhaps 150HK$. Hope I am not sounding cheap here :))

    I`m for $200. If it were an acquaintance it might be less, but I have only been to friends` kid`s birthdays so far, so I can`t say.
