Christmas Gift Guide - For Children

This week I've been uploading my annual Christmas Gift Guides, the Men's gift guide on Tuesday and my Ladies gift guide on Wednesday. Today it's all about the kids, and I think I had more fun sourcing ideas for this one than all the rest of the gift guides put together. Being a Mummy blogger I can't help but be a little bit of a geek when it comes to children's toys, and to feel just as excited as them when a new toy arrives to review! My Christmas gift guides for children has filled to the brim of fantastic choices for your little ones this Christmas.

Learning Resources Alphabet Acorns Activity Set - £29.15
My favourite type of toys has got to be learning toys, ones that are so fun that your child doesn't even know it! This is just one of those, a fun and challenging matching game gives children multiple ways to learn and play. With the Alphabet Acorns Activity set, children can match uppercase and lowercase letters as they put the acorns together, plus play hide-and-seek by finding a surprise inside each acorn. The object they find begins with the letter sound on the acorn. Colours correspond to letters, and little learners can even practice making words, learning their ABCs, beginning sounds, and more!

Hape Chef's Choice - £21.49
I'm also a big fan of wooden toys and Hape is a go-to brand when I'm looking for something new. Within the Chef's Choice set from Hape is a collection of tasty wooden food items to inspire your little cook. It includes bread, cheese, vegetables, eggs, cutting board, and a child-safe knife. Wooden toys help stimulate imagination and creativity, as well as encouraging role play. Suitable for children from three years.

Hape Dessert Tower - £24.99
If you have already have the Chef's choice set which I've mentioned above, your little one will be able to make you a savoury lunch and then present you with lots of lovely treat from Hape Dessert Tower for your pudding! It's great for role play and really sparks the imagination, encouraging them to use it with the simplicity of the toy. It includes nine sweet treats and the cake stand. Another wonderful product from one of our favourite brands, Hape.

Orchard Toys Cheeky Monkeys - £9.50
This is a fun game of chance for all the family, perfect for playing at Christmas! There's no hanging about in this fast-paced game called Cheeky Monkeys. Players battle to collect and count the most bananas but watch out for other players trying to steal them, uh oh! Players must make strategic decisions by choosing whether to play it safe after their first turn or spin the spinner to either collect or risk losing more bananas! It's not only a fun game to play but also helps develop hand-eye coordination and number and counting skills and so on.
Fingerlings Monkey - £14.99
Fingerlings are interactive pets that respond to sound, motion & touch and let you know when they like something or not. Right side up or upside-down, they love to monkey-around!

  6. Disney Guess the film game, sounds like fun. I loved being taken to Disney films as a child, by my brother. Then as an adult I'd take the children to the cinema to see Disney films. Great fun and entertainment. The family would enjoy this game, the children could play the game together, or choose to allow some of us adults to join in. As there are generations of us that love Disney films.
