Christmas Gift Guide for Kids

(ad - Gifted) 

Christmas has come by so fast this year, but it's already time to start buying those Christmas presents. Most people have a child to buy for, whether it be for their own children, their grandchildren or someone elses children. Here is my Kids Christmas Gift Guide for children aged 3+, which may give you some ideas of what you could buy. 

1. Waboba Moonshine Ball *Buy Me Here*

Looking for a toy that bounces out of this world? The Waboba Moonshine ball does exactly this. The special shape of the ball means that when you bounce it, it goes super high and also makes a pop sound when it hits the floor. The special thing about the moonshine ball is that it can also be played in the dark, perfect for winter as the darker afternoons draw in. It lights up when it hits the ground and stays lit for 7 seconds, meaning if you keep bouncing, it will stay lit. This lightweight ball is the size of 60mm meaning that it's the perfect fit for a child's hand. And at £8.99 it makes the perfect extra gift or perfect stocking filler. 

2. The Sock Game *Buy Me Here*

This game comes with a game board with a spinner on it, Playing pieces, Socks, and Thirty unusual objects.
