Here’s a list of some of the greatest gifts you can get for young children or siblings this Christmas. Endless fun and excitement right through to Boxing Day no doubt. There really are some quite amazing things on offer nowadays that any of us would have loved at that age.
Big Bubble Maker
Remember those little pots of bubble liquid we used to have as kids? Simply dip the oval shaped stick into the liquid and blow. Yeah well this is just like that. But a ka-zillion times bigger. It works in a similar fashion, with a huge loop to fill with the magic bubble formula but this time, your puny breath will not do. Drag it along with you to make huge bubbles. They even claim to be as big as a bus! A bonus feature of this magnificent kit is the recipe book. How to cook up your own magic bubble formula from household liquids so you have no need to buy a whole new kit every time. Just £8.99 from iwantoneofthose.com seems reasonable to me.
Tron Zero Gravity Remote Control Car/Cycle
Simply the best remote control toy I think I’ve ever come across. Especially at the generous price of £30 from Firebox.com. This car defies gravity, literally. It uses a special suction power on the bottom of the car to manoeuvre upon any smooth surface. Horizontal as normal, vertical up the walls or even upside down. Cool eh? Pull death defying doughnut spins on the ceiling. Race from wall to wall. These Zero Gravity Remote Control Cars come in multiple colours; Blue, Green or Camouflage to name a few and recharges from the remote control itself which is handy.
For the childish dog lover in all of us. On the face of it, just a normal dog toy/chew. But only once bitten, do you uncover the twist. For when the dog bites on the ball, a large plastic moustache remains attached to his upper lip. Perhaps not suitable for a walk in the park but kept contained within the home this will provide many laughs and moments of joy this Christmas. A hilarious gift which to be honest, I can’t see lasting past New Year. Never the less, a must have gift for any young dog lover. Just £10 from Firebox.com.
Robot Guinea Pig – Gupi!
The name might not leave much to the imagination, but don’t be put off. This is a really cute gift. Perhaps mainly for the ladies of the household rather than the boys. It’s as close as you can get to a real guinea pig without actually having to clean out his cage. It reacts to how you treat it like a normal pet and even reacts to sounds. If in a good mood, Gupi will come running when called. He gets hungry so you must feed him with his own special electronic carrot. It really is fascinating. Find out for yourself at Firebox.com for a modest £40.
Ice Cream Maker Ball
Most kids like ice cream right? Now here’s an extremely fun and easy way to make your own. No electricity needed what so ever. It really is a fantastic and innovative idea. Just put the ingredients into the ball, close it up and go play with it. 20 minutes of playing with the Ice Cream Ball is enough time to mould your delicious homemade ice cream ready to scoop out the ball into a bowl. A great way to get kids active whilst enjoying their favourite treats. Available in blue or pink for the lads or lasses. A great buy for just under £25 from Firebox.com.
