Every year we always buy big and little J a treat for Halloween. It's one of our favourite times of year. We have been on the lookout out for some treat inspiration and if you are too then here is our Halloween Trick or Treat Gift Guide.

Pumpkins
Springin Spiders Game
 Little J has been watching Ryan's Toy Review for as long as I can remember. Ryan has released a lots of toys from his Ryan's World range and Springin' Spiders Game is the perfect Halloween treat.

There is nothing better than a quick and easy game and Springin' Spiders is so simple. Just flick your spider and get the most spiders onto the web before time runs out to win.

1,2,Boo Book
1, 2, Boo! Is a spooky counting board book suitable for all ages. When a brother and sister go trick-or-treating, they compete to see who can find the most bizarre and brilliant things. They try to count all the hair-raising creatures and need your help.

skeleton costume
Little J has his Halloween costume sorted already this year wearing the Wilko Halloween Scary Skeleton Onsie. The costume has a scary skeleton design on a black background, it's perfect for Halloween parties and trick-or-treating.

first day at skeleton school book
Do you dare take part in the First Day at Skeleton School? There are monsters and witches, not to mention ghouls. They howl in assembly, fly broomsticks in the library and learn how to float through walls.

Disney Traditions Violet Vampire Minnie and Mickey
Disney Traditions Colourful Count Mickey is playing a scary Halloween host, dressed as the King Vampire and Disney Traditions Violet Vampire Minnie, is about to scare up some Halloween fun, trick-or-treating as a sweet-toothed vampire.

Disney Traditions are handcrafted in Jim Shore's unique folk-art style. Each figurine features quilt patterns, rosemaling designs, and a playful mix of colours.

The graveyard book
The Graveyard Book tells the story of a baby who escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family. Who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead.

But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family. A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

Witch wars book
When Fran the Fabulous Fairy turns up in Tiga Whicabim's shed to tell her she is a witch, Tiga doesn't believe her.  Fran points out that TIGA WHICABIM is actually an anagram of I AM A BIG WITCH and magics her away down the drainpipes to compete in Witch Wars the competition to crown the next Top Witch of Ritzy City.

Crazy Rumours Lip balm
Two lip balms that are perfect for Autumn and Halloween. Pumpkin Spice is everything nice and so much more! Cozy up to pumpkin with a touch cinnamon spice too. Candy Corn is a Halloween classic for the true candy connoisseur, sugared caramel and sweet cream.

Crazy Rumors are wonderfully colourful and flavourful vegan lip balms from the USA with big personality. Established over 15 years ago, the exceptional 100% natural lip care is still handmade in small batches for the purest and freshest balms. The mouth-watering flavours are sourced from fruits, vegetables and spices - no synthetic lab created flavours, nature creates it all.

I went trick or treating book
When a brother and sister go trick-or-treating, they compete to see who can scare the creepiest creatures. As they try to remember each hair-raising encounter, everything escalates - until they get the biggest fright of all.

I Went Trick or Treating is perfect for little monsters at Halloween! This brilliantly funny book is based on the much-loved memory game 'I went to the shop...' - but with a super-spooky twist.


What treats will you be buying or enjoying this Halloween?

Christmas Gift Guide

No comments
Buying presents at Christmas time can be quite difficult and there is nothing worse than rushing round crowded shops looking for ideas of what to buy. Whether you are buying for him, for her, for family, fiends or secret santa it can be a nightmare. I tend to browse the internet for gift ideas and I have added a few ideas below for you to enjoy. Hopefully you might spot something you like or would like to receive which could make your Christmas less stressful.
 
World Class offer a wide selection of fragrances for both him and her. The Colour Me range are a perfect choice and the Purple is my favourite. An elegant rich modern fruity chypre fragrance. The fresh top notes of bergamot and watermelon are boosted by a subtle floral accord of pretty jasmin, rose and violet notes. The dry down is a tenacious blend of oakmoss, amber and precious patchouli woods.
 
Personalised Bottles have a large selection of gifts that would be suitable for all. I particular like the Scottish hampers. Using only the finest Scottish foods and gifts, the traditional Scottish gift hampers are a luxury gift for that someone special. As they are based in Scotland, they have access to over 60 Scottish food producers, with a total combined list of over 600 products.


 
I love the smell of gingerbread. Baylis & Harding's latest collection captures the essence of this fabulous aroma and presents it in a range of festive and fun pampering products.

Caramel Fudge, Creamy Marshmallow Frosting, Hot Chocolate and Sweet Gingerbread scents will create a deliciously festive feeling in your bathroom.

My favourite is the Baylis & Harding Beauticology Cream Marshmallow Frosting 50ml Hand & Body Lotion.
Christmas wouldn't be the same if you didn't have some delicious sweets to snack on while watching a Christmas movie. Hope and Greenwood have some amazing sweeties and this is my favourite. Splendid Stocking Fillers is packed with Sugar Mice, Sweet Bag Ginger & Chili, Sweet Bag Peppermint, Sweet Bag Cranberry & Orange and Curly Candy Canes.

Christmas Gift Guide - Toys

No comments
There is just so much choice out there at the moment for little ones for Christmas. I have been browsing over the last few months and character toys seem to be the most popular at the moment, well they are in our house. Little J loves Cbeebies, Peppa Pig, In The Night Garden and Golden Bear Toys have a lovely selection at the moment and I have included 6 of our favourites below.
1. Henry Hugglemonster Henry Roarback - RRP £39.99

Have you ever wondered if your little one can ROAR as good as Henry? Well now you can put them to the test as Henry will copy their every word and sound. Press Henry's right hand which will start the ROAR back feature. Once Henry's nose starts to flash you will know that the recording mode has started. Let your little one chat away or get them to ROAR. When its time to play back Henry will repeat word for word in his own voice. Your little ones will be amazed. There is also lots of phrases from the tv show which can be heard by pressing Henry's left hand. Suitable from 10mnths+
2. Cbeebies Sweet Dreams with Squidge - RRP £19.99

Is your little one getting tired? Squidge is so its time to go to sleep. Give Squidge a big squeeze and listen to him softly play the tune from Cbeebies Bedtime hour. Use him as a pillow or even a nightlight as he glows in different colours soothing your little one to sleep. Give him another squeeze to make him stop playing. He is so soft and cuddly and would make a perfect gift.
This is the cutest plush I think I've ever seen and when we got the chance to review one a few months ago I wasn't sure whether little J would be interested or not but he loves his Squidge and it has been a firm night time favourite. 
3. Peppa Pig Wooden Play Pack - RRP £23.95

There is something special about wooden toys. This gift set would be perfect for any little Peppa fan. Firstly the wooden dominoes set has all your favourite characters from Peppa Pig on them. the first player to match the pictures and lay down all their dominoes is the winner. Hours of fun and perfect for learning how to take turns. The Pepper Pig wooden vehicles are also lots of fun. Just pull them back and watch them go. Chunky and colourful and perfect for little hands to hold. The pullback range features train, car, boat and rocket.
4. Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train - RRP £49.99

If you have a little fan of In the night garden then I am sure this will already be top of their list to Father Christmas. The Ninky Nonk Musical Activity Train is a whopping 78cm long and comes with 5 detachable carriages. Each carriage is a toy within itself but when placed together they form the Ninky Nonk. The Engine carriage, Spinning Shape Sorter carriage, Stacking blocks carriage, pop up Igglepiggle carriage and Peek-a-boo carriage will keep little ones entertained for hours. With music, sounds and glowing lights this is perfect for any fan. If you want to read our Ninky Nonk just click HERE

5. Something Special - Mr Tumble Textured Spotty Bag - RRP £14.99

Mr Tumble fans will love pretending to be him by owning their own spotty bag. Bright colours, the Something Special logo and 4 textured spots to help stimulate senses. Green satin, orange velvet, red plush and blue corduroy. Also comes with 5 finder cards with Makaton signs to help recognition of popular household items.
6. Woolly & Tig Christmas Bundle (Exclusive to Golden Bear Toys) - RRP £103 SPECIAL OFFER £50

Includes

Next I have included a few items that we really like and that will be going on our list to Father Christmas.
1. VTech Baby Toot Toot Drivers Airport - RRP £24.99

Little J has a set of Toot toot cars at his Grandma's house and he absolutely loves them. We googled the range and you can buy some many different playsets. This is my favourite, it comes with a little plane. All Toot Toot playsets can connect to one another so its just endless fun. You can buy this in major toy shops and also online at Amazon.
2. Thomas & Friends Battery Operated Train and 22 piece track - RRP £119.99

Little J has a few ride on's but I love the idea of this because it's battery operated and moves along the track. Little J doesn't have very strong legs yet so he does sometimes struggle to move across the floor on his ride on but he loves sitting on this. I think this will be great because at least he will be going somewhere.
3. TOMY Counting with Luke The Loop - RRP £14.99

Luke loves counting and looping. Your little one will love flying Luke around in his stunt aeroplane. He has an easy to hold handle perfect for little ones. His engine will roar as you fly him through the air and everytime you make him loop he will count - all the way up to 10.
4. Fisher Price Laugh and Learn stride to ride puppy - RRP £59.99

Whether your little one is sitting on puppy, walking with him or riding with him there is lots of fun to be had. He will play more than 50 songs, tunes and phrases. He will teach your little one about letters, numbers, colours, shapes, greetings, manners and more. Get your little ones to sort through the coloured blocks and feed them to him. 
5. Pink Lining Knights and Dragons Wheelie Case - RRP £30.00

I absolutely love this. We go on many weekend breaks and holidays throughout the year so this would be perfect for little J. Plus he absolutely loves putting stuff in and out of bags so he would have fun with at home too. Available from Pink Lining
