With Christmas around the corner you would think I have everything all planned out. I am, after all, an organised person. The one with lists for everything. I even have lists for lists. But this Christmas I have sorted nothing. I have no idea what I am buying the girls for their main present or any of the small stocking fillers. Despite what everyone says about kids asking for everything they see on adverts or in magazines, neither of my two have voiced a desire for anything. This is not very helpful. Their aunties and uncles have started asking what they would like too. Well I just don’t know. This is not helpful either. Then I came across Wicked Uncle and things got a lot easier. So for the benefit of the girls relatives and for the benefit of all of you reading here is my Childrens’ Christmas Gift Guide with Wicked Uncle.
The best thing about Wicked Uncle is the search facilities. Yes, all toy websites allow you to search by age and gender but the Wicked Uncle search actually works. The toys that over lap the ages and genders show up in all the relevant searches. Of course it may ‘just work’ because their selection of toys are a little superior to everywhere else. Are these toys unique? No. But they are clearly carefully selected and they are not surrounded but general mass produced rubbish that will be discarded in the Charity shop in the new year.
There is something for every budget for every age group. The hardest thing will be deciding which toy to actually buy!
The best thing about this microphone is it isn’t all plastic and cheap looking. The wood detail makes it look much sturdier other microphones available.
What is not to love? A Dinosaur with educational numbers and bright colours? I think I want one! And don’t even try and tell me this is a ‘boys toy’; my youngest daughter would love this!
I have got this for my youngest daughter for Christmas. Yeah, ok, I got it for me! I have wanted some Kinetic Sand for ages and even contemplated trying to make it but never found the motivation. There is another kinetic sand gift available but I went with this one due to the bright colours and accessories. I do have trays the girls could use with the sand but having one provided is brilliant. Plus all the sand accessories we have in the garden are all dirty and I don’t want them in the house really. So this complete set was ideal. Hopefully Trix will love it as much as I already do…. Maybe I will keep it for myself. Who knew sand could be so much fun?
Admittedly I was torn between this fairy garden and the Unicorn Garden. And as I sit here now typing away I can’t really remember what swayed me towards this one as they both look brilliant. Obviously this is for Ellie and she is both fairy and unicorn obsessed. At school she is learning about nature and how things grow so I thought this would be the perfect gift for her to be able to grow her own little piece of nature. The accessories are very detailed and well built. The little house just needed the windows, door and roof putting on but that was very easy. The rest of the accessories are small so be careful if you have younger children about. However it all seems very well made and sturdy.
This is perfect for the inquisitive 5 year old in your life. I am a great believer in encouraging curiosity and learning. Anything that can help harness that in a positive way is a winner in my book. I have this book marked for Ellie’s birthday next year as I think she will love it and I will love helping her learn about the microscopic world around her.
Another great toy to get those little brains working without the kids even realising. And more than likely the adults brains too as they try and help.
Something for Everyone
The age categories go up to 12 and then onto Teens. I do not have much experience with what is hot and what is not right now with anyone above the age of 6 (that is a painful admission to make). However I suspect all the gifts would be greatly received as everything for the younger generations is brilliant.
Good luck with your Christmas shopping. If like me you have left it until last minute then look no further. The order process is seriously easy and there are various delivery options to get the gifts here on time. And if you are no good at wrapping then Wicked Uncle will even do that for you too!
