How to be a WICKED Kids Gift Buyer

 (ad- Gifted Promotion)

Whether it be for a child you know well, or a child you don't. Whether it be for a birthday, Christmas, or a kid's party, buying gifts can sometimes be such a daunting thing. "Will they like it?, how much should I spend? Is it age-appropriate? All of these questions are something that may run through your mind. 

So why not make your life a lot easier and head straight to the Wicked Uncle Kids Online gift shop -HERE.
The range of toys and gift ideas is massive and I guarantee that there will be something on there for the child you have in mind. 

Online shopping can also sometimes be an effort, but not with Wicked Uncle, their website is laid out so well that you can shop in many different ways that work for you. 

For example, you need a gift for a child aged 6. Easy! On the home page, you can simply click a button for that age range, you can also choose if you want to look for a girl, boy, or both. 

Or you may be looking for something specific. For example, the child in mind loves construction. Perfect! simply click on the categories tab at the top of the page and hit the button for the construction section. Or scroll through the many different categories of toys that there are. 

And if you still have no clue what to buy, then Wicked Uncle has a Popular section on the website where you can browse their best-selling toys. Then when you see something you like, click into it, and it will also recommend products that are similar to that one. 

The website also has another feature that is super handy and that is to easily be able to share the link with someone. Simply click the share product link button and then you can copy the link, share to Facebook etc. This is great if you're giving someone ideas of what they could buy your kids, or if you are asking if someone's kids would love that toy.

It took me a matter of moments to find something that my kids would love, and seeing as all 4 of my children are completely different from each other, it was great that I managed to find a gift that suited each one of their tastes.

And if you want to make your gifting even more exciting, you could get it gift-wrapped, add a gift card and also get it delivered super quick (for the last-minute shoppers) The gift wrap option is brilliant as you actually get to decide what wrapping paper it is wrapped in. Perfect for making the gift more personalized. 

I find this great as Lily has family that lives away, some as far as Spain, and so them being able to have it wrapped before it's sent makes life so much easier for them and me. 

So, My tips for being the best kid's gift buyer.

1. Head to the Wicked Uncle Website and start your Wicked Gifting Experience straight away. 

2. Spend time easily browsing the amazing selection of toys. 

3. Buy something and get it gift-wrapped! 

Happy Shopping!

Geomag Mechanics Challenge Strike Review

 (ad - Gifted)

If your child is hands on, loves to build, loves magnets and also loves a challenge, then Geomag Mechanics Challenge Strike is the toy for them.

We were sent this to review and it was something all the kids loved, and even the adults. 

In this set there are 185 pieces, all to be constructed together to become a fun game involving magnets and speed. 

The idea of the game is to be fun, but also helping children learn and understand how mechanics work, 

The set came with instructions on how to put it together, I have myself never been very good at this, and my 8 year old also struggled to put it together, but an older child I think would be in their element putting it together. I got my partner to do it, although he is 32, this is totally his sort of toy and he was super excited to play it with the kids. 

He put it together in no time, it looked great all build up and I was very eager to see how it worked and how to play the challenge. 

First of all to test if it works, the set comes with little magnetic balls that you need to throw into the slot at the top. The idea is meant to be that the faster you can throw the balls in then the faster the top of the construction spins. We did to start have some trouble getting it to spin. But looking at the trouble shoot in the instructions we think it was because the spinner wasn't connected together properly. There were also other things to think about to why it may not work, such as it having to be on a flat surface. 

We did also find that there was a technique to getting it going, putting the first ball in and waiting for that to move the spinner slightly before starting to throw your other balls in.  

The idea of the game is to throw the balls in, to make the spinner spin and knock down the towers on the playing board. There are different ways to play, and different ways to earn points, making the game play different each time. As well as knocking towers down, you can also pick up magnetic balls sat on top of the tower, which also gets you points. There was actually something very satisfying about this factor and there was always a big celebratory yes when managing to pick up a ball. 

This game becomes quite addictive and we played it over and over, there is something great about seeing the chain reaction of it all working using mechanics and gravity. 

The game is for players 8+ and I would say that is about the right age range as my 8 year old although couldn't build it, she enjoyed playing it. 

You can read more about Geomag Mechanics products on the Geomag website and this can be bought online at places such as Amazon. 

Would your child enjoy a game like this?

Care Bears 40th Anniversary and NEW Bears

 (Ad - Gifted)

Wow, Can you believe it, It's the Care Bears 40th Anniversary this year. I remember having one when I was little and so I'm so pleased that Lily is now loving collecting them. 

There are lots of Care Bears available now to buy and they have just brought out 3 NEW ones for your kids to collect. True Heart Bear, Daydream Bear, and Superstar Bear. 

If you don't know about Care Bears, they are a group of loveable, huggable, bear BFF's who live a sweet caring life. They come in the form of a super soft 14inch plush that can now become your new best friend. 

We were sent True Heart Bear to add to Lily's collection. 

True Heart Bear is a loveable, friendly wise bear who always tells the truth. True Heart Bear shows how the best, truest part of us radiates from what's in our hearts.

True Heart bear just like all of the care bears, is so adorable and so soft and cuddly. Her fur is super silky to stroke and all the carebears are always such quality bears. 

This bear is pink and has a belly badge of a multi-coloured star with a pink heart in the middle. A care bears tummy badge is what makes each care bear individual and shows its character. This is what Lily loves the most about them, that they all have different badges making them super collectible.

The bear also has the care bear pink heart on its bottom which shows it is a genuine care bear. These 14inch Care Bears also have a button nose in the shape of a heart which is a lovely edition. 

Lily is in love with her new care bear and can't wait to collect more.

Care bears can be bought from your local Clintons store.
