Thanks to the kind people on here we now only need 3 stones. We are missing the morse, dingo and gecko if anybody has them to swap.

We still have quite a lot of spares too.
Do you still need the parakeet? And I have the dingos too and the "morse".

I received some stones today in the mail - are they from you, summerrain? Thanks, eh! Switzerland, eh??
Oh yes, that was from me! Sorry I took so long, I got rejected the first time round for using the wrong envelope!

BM, I've sent yours out too.

I got mine too thanks and sent some greenies your way. Thank you so much for doing this especially since you don't have kids yourself.

Thanks to all the kind people on EF we now only need ONE stone.

Does anyone have the GEKKO by any chance? Otherwise I'll send my son to the swapsies at Migros next week but I hate those. On second thoughts it's school holidays so he won't be able to do that either.

It's your lucky day! Went to Migros yesterday and got a spare Gekko (Halbfinger-Gekko, the big round green one), that is yours!

Say hello to your son, I'll mail you the gekko today

Re: Migros animal pendants.

On a side note, don't you think we are slightly pathetic spending work time chatting about our kids' collections and swapping those stones ourselves?!?

A friendless collegue thought it was hilarious when I told her about it

No problem at all, and thanks for the greens.

I've seen how happy kids are, and their faces lighting up when I hand them all these nanos, cards etc if they are behind me at the check-out, so its a pleasure to do it.

Absolutely, but my children love it. Each time Migros starts up a campaign I think: "Not this time, nope we are not doing it!"....This useally lasts until the minute my children get home from school, all exited from this new campaign

I guess, we'll be on the hook years ahead with their age in mind, but it is not an extra cost to us as we often go to Migros anyway and friends and neighbours around us are so kind to collect for us as well. Without them we wouldn't have managed to collect and pass on as much

Maybe that's why she hasn't got any friends.

Re: Migros animal pendants.

Oupsie daisie, I meant childless of course

And it's true it's really cute to see my son's face lit up when we get a letter by mail with stones in it. Anyway, I'm half a child myself still, I enjoy swapping those

Re: Migros animal pendants.

I thought I sent you the orang outan but maybe I forgot it or sent it to somebody else by accident. I also have a wolf for you if you still need one ( and another orang outan)

Re: Migros animal pendants.

I'll send you the bouquetin as soon as I've bought more stamps. I have the orangutan stone but no sticker, you're interested?

Re: Migros animal pendants.

Belgianmum:
Yes, you did send me the orang-outan but the sticker was damaged and we wish to have an intact sticker. So yes, I would like your other orang-outan sticker. As for the wolf, well maybe you can hold it for me until I hear from MacGregor's Daughter (who is supposed to send it to me but who has been dealing with much more important things this week).

Mélusine:
I'm sending you the bison and the jaguar tomorrow morning. Please do send me the bouquetin whenever you get some stamps. As for the orang-outan you can see from what I wrote above that there seem to be more stones than stickers...

You guys are great!

Ah Ok it was that one I had a few and I couldn't remember who got what. My son accidentally tore it getting it open as there were 2 stones and a sticker in it. I thought if you put it into the book carefully it would be fine that's why I only put tape on the back.I don't actually have another sticker only the spare stone from the same pack. Sorry
The wolf is yours if you need it though.

I think you meant this for MacGregor's daughter. When I get the stones from her and Luben I will have the complete collection.

Will still get them when shopping though and will let you know if there's any from your list.

Yes. I meant this (Jaguar and wild boar) for MacGregor's Daughter.

It now appears that I am only missing 4:

Paon bleu (Peacock?)

Canard colvert (Duck?)

Orang-outan (need only the sticker)

Cerf Elaphe (Deer?)
