Christmas gift ideas for the kids
If you are looking for some gift inspiration for the kids then check out our 'For The Kids' Christmas Gift Guide. 

For The Younger Ones
Play doh pizza kitchen
Orangutwang game
Cubby teddy bear
Gelli Baff
A few Christmas gift ideas for the littler ones.

There's a pretend pizza party just waiting to happen with the Play-Doh Stamp ‘n Top Pizza Oven. No batteries or electronics needed – just imagination!

Orangutwang is a fun, suspenseful and wild game for the kids! Take turns hanging fruit and jungle friends on the orangutan but watch out! At some point, he’ll be holding too much and he’ll spring up and send the fruit and friends just never know when!

The Doidy bowl gift pack and cup is the perfect stocking filler for your little one this Christmas. One of the amazing benefits of the new weaning bowl is its super suction base which means it really  sticks firmly to the highchair or table. Christmas dinner this year for those weaning babies will be a doddle with more in their mouth than on the floor!

Doidy weaning products support baby-led feeding and the cup is recommended by health care professionals for better oral health.

Fur Real Cubby The Curious Bear was listed as one of the top toys this Christmas and I couldn't agree more.

Amazingly Interactive and Lifelike, Cubby is a curious, expressive bear cub who loves to play with you during the day. In the night-time mode, he makes sleepy sounds and plays soft music.

Cubby will respond with 100+ Sound-and-Motion Combinations. He can move his head, eyes, ears, nose, mouth and arms and makes lots of fun sounds.

We are huge fans of Gelli Bath and have tried most of their products over the past year or so. The Chocolate Emoji Maker is a new product for us to try. Get creative and make your own Emoji chocolate bar using the milk, dark and white chocolate that is included. Each pack comes with everything you need to make two bars.

For The Creative Ones
Little Brians Paint Sticks art station
Smiggle Star wars lunchboxes and stationery
Stabilo pens
If you are buying a gift for a child who loves to be creative then I would definitely recommend the next few products. 

The Little Brian 2 in 1 Art Station is double sided (whiteboard and chalkboard), portable and easy to fold and store. Perfect for children to unleash creativity anywhere! Included in the 2 in 1 Art Station are Little Brian Paint Sticks and Chalk Sticks. No brushes or water needed, dries in less than 60 seconds and completely mess free. 

To celebrate the release of the latest Star Wars movie, Smiggle has joined the force. For the first time ever, fans of Smiggle and Star Wars can see their favourites together, in a selection of the coolest bags, bottles, gadgets and accessories in the galaxy.

You can choose from the First Order or The Resistance range, which one will you choose?

Stabilo pens and pencils are the perfect gift for those who enjoy art and writing. There are so many different pens to choose from including Stabilo Woody 3 in 1. The Woody 3 in 1 is a multi-talented pencil, it is a wax crayon, pencil and watercolour all in one. Stabilo Fineliners come in a range of  colours and are completely smudge free.

Our personal favourite is Stabilo Pen 68. A premium felt tip pen that feels lovely in your hand to draw with and also can colour in over a large area with ease.

For The Technology Lovers
Osmo and super studio
tonies box and tonies figures
Hape Remote Control Train
I'm sure there will be plenty of tech gifts going on Christmas lists this year. Here are our top picks. 

 Osmo merges tactile exploration with innovative technology, actively engaging children in the learning process.

In Super Studio, you are the artist — get step-by-step instructions on how to draw the scenes, then watch the story come to life in your first animation! You can choose from Disney Princesses, Mickey and Friends, Incredibles 2 and Frozen 2.

The Sphero Specdrums are app-enabled musical rings that encourage kids of all ages to create and play music by using colours.

Using the colourful play pad, Specdrums lets you play 100s of sounds. But the fun doesn’t stop there, tap Specdrums on a piece of clothing, fruit or any colourful backdrop to create and mix any sounds, beats, and loops.

The innovative Toniebox speaker makes a fun and interactive gift for children, playing songs and stories available on the different Tonie figurines.

Little ones can get festive with Christmas classics such as The Snowman, play Disney favourites such as The Lion King or Jungle Book, or record their very own content using the Creative-Tonies. The stylish Toniebox cube comes in seven chic colours, and all Tonie figurines are handpainted, with each character relating to their specific story or song – the characters are the perfect stocking fillers for kids to collect.

The Hape Remote Control Train uses a mobile phone to drive this clever little train forward, back or to a stop. It comes with a free Bluetooth phone app that also lets you play five cool sounds.

For The Book Lovers
One Christmas Wish Book
We're Going On An Elf Chase
The Lonely Christmas Tree
Last year we created a book advent for little J wrapping up 24 stories that he could enjoy each night at bedtime. Bloomsbury have created some lovely Christmas stories and we will be adding these three to our book advent this year.

One Christmas Wish - It's Christmas Eve and Theo - left at home with a babysitter - sees an odd-looking star out of his window and decides to make a wish. He wishes that he had some friends to keep him company. Moments later the Christmas decorations begin to disentangle themselves from the tree behind him, ready to wreak a little havoc.

We're Going On An Elf Chase - Join the fun as four bunnies set off on an exciting lift-the-flap Christmas adventure. Help the bunnies chase elves, watch out for the obstacles - penguins, robins, polar bears and reindeer - and get into bed before a BIG SURPRISE!

The Lonely Christmas Tree - A lonely tree stands on the cold, frosted hillside gazing at the other trees sparkling in the village below. How it longs to be with them! Then suddenly out reaches a warm friendly hand, and with a wobble and a shake, a very jolly fellow takes the tree on a journey to a new place.
