Think little Spiny, think! Santa? Birthday fairy?

The app may be £1.19 but I'm sure the 'pad' may cost a little more! >8^,
Spiny Norman 10:25:36 | 14 Sep 2010
You would need a VERY big fish tank and Koi are VERY expensive whereas the app is only £1.19!!!!
Gladys 10:05:05 | 14 Sep 2010
You've now made me want to own an iPad, just so I can buy this completely unproductive app... (it'd probably be cheaper to buy a fish tank!) >:^p
