Christmas Gift Guide
It’s happening! The great Christmas rush is upon us and Black Friday is almost here! Searching for the perfect gift can take a huge amount of time and effort. We’d love to make your Christmas a little less stressful, so we’ve rounded up our favourite gifts ideas so that you can settle in for the night and make sure that you have the best presents all ready under the tree.
GIFTS FOR KIDS
Fingerling Untamed Dinos
You might remember last year’s panic for Fingerling Monkeys (the little interactive pets that sold out weeks in advance of Christmas)? Well this year, it’s the Dino’s turn. The Dinos are a slightly bigger version of last year’s trend but are just as alluring, responding to motion and sound just like other Fingerlings. Look out for growls and roars, and if you’re not keen on Dinosaurs, keep your eyes peeled for their Unicorn sisters.

Who can resist a lollipop shaped surprise ball containing a lanyard, stickers and a plush toy which is actually super cute? Amongst the endless selection of collectibles on the market this year, these Pikmis are set to be the season’s must-have (farewell LOL dolls). Snap yours up early and look forward to shrieks of delight when the stocking is unwrapped on Christmas day. They also get bonus points for being scented.

Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express
Lego comes up trumps every single year. Universally agreed to be one of the only toys that keeps on giving after the first unboxing, Lego continues to bring out new kits and themes to maintain its market pull, not to mention its position in the hearts of kids everywhere. Enter Harry Potter Hogwarts Express, a little like the Star Wars Millennium Falcon, this has the potential for cult buying so we’d suggest tracking this kit down quickly to avoid disappointment.
