Lego Junior’s Turtle Lair
RRP – £17.99
Each year I alway chose a Lego set for each child’s Christmas gift pile which is as much for me to enjoy as them. I really like the Lego Juniors range which is easier to build for 4-7 year olds. We have a sizeable collection of Duplo but as soon as they’re old enough it’s preferable to be adding to the standard size brick collection and the Junior bricks are completely interconnectable. The Lair includes Leo with his vehicle and skateboard.
Superheroes really are C’s favourite thing at the moment and judging by the playground on own clothes day, this is quite a common interest of 4 year old boys! Top of his gift list was a Spiderman Costume and web blasting glove, I think it’s one of the most definite requests I’ve ever had from my children at this time of year so I promptly went and bought it. A little like Peppa Pig for the toddlers; plastering Spiderman or Batman on a gift will usually make it a hit with this age group.
Kidizoom Smart Watch
RRP – £39.99
This made the Top 12 on The Dream Toys list published by the Toy Retailers association and I’m not at all surprised! As soon as I saw it I rushed straight to buy one not wanted to risk them selling out nearer the time which is not something I usually get caught up in but for the price it seemed ideal. It has 8 modes including alarms, games, timers, video and voice recorder and camera with fun effects. C likes wearing his normal digital watch everywhere so I’m pretty sure this is going to be a huge hit!
Half Shell Heroes Talking Tech Toy
The half shell hero collection has been designed to have a less menacing collection for younger fans and I am pretty sure they are going to be incredibly popular! Besides these talking figures the collection includes a mini-figures and vehicles, a large scale Leo, Secret Sewer HQ and much more. I had done most of my shopping by the time I spotted this Raph toy for £15 in Tesco and couldn’t resist. With swinging arms to move their weapon Ninja style and 20 sounds and phrases I’m looking forward toC’s reaction when he unwraps it. UKMums.tv are running a fab advent calendar competition with Half Shell Heroes goodies to give away every day until Christmas.
RRP – £12.95
Just too super cute to ignore these moss stitch gloves are as novel as they are practical and have a matching hat with fin on top!
