Top toys for Christmas that we have tried.

We're into November now and we can't deny that Christmas will soon be here. If you haven't already it's time to think about what our little darlings will be getting for Christmas. 

Top toys for Christmas that we have tried.

Over the past year we have reviewed some fab toys, games and stocking fillers which would be perfect for Christmas. These are some of them.

A set of coloured paint sticks in the box

Little Brian Paint Sticks are very clever. Each stick contains liquid paint which has been transformed into a solid. They twist up and down like a glue stick, there is no need for water or brushes and can be used on all sorts of surfaces including paper, card, canvas and wood and windows! 

The 'No More Worries' Kit in the box

Let the fairies take your worries away, no matter where you are! The 'No More Worries' Kit is the perfect way to express your feelings and give your worries away.

Smooshins that we had made. A pink and orange little creature.

Smooshins are a unique new toy range that brings the surprise and anticipation of “unboxing” to a whole new level. The Smooshins Surprise Maker Kit has everything you need to get your very own Smooshins collection started! Just pop one of the included colour pouches, squeeze it into the Surprise Maker and fasten the locking mechanism, and after 4 hours your maker will light up to tell you your Smooshin is ready to be revealed!

FabLab Glitter Tattoo & Nail Art kits in the boxes

FabLab is a range of activity kits that enable girls to explore, play and experiment with their style in a fun and safe way. FabLab cosmetics are 100% non-toxic and designed specifically for children.

Glam Goo!

My youngest playing with slime.

Over the past year we have tried a few of the Glam Goo sets. The Glam Goo Deluxe Slime PackConfetti Accessory Pack and the Fantasy Slime PackMake slime fashionable with Glam Goo! Customize and decorate your slime then store and carry it in your cool fashion accessories! We love it and Ellie will be getting more for Christmas.

rainbow coloured bath water.

Mini-U is an award-winning collection of hair care, bath and body care, hairbrushes for kids and families designed with the highest quality formulations at affordable prices and packaged with fun in mind. Mini-U sells products for kids that take the ‘boring’ out of bath time and add the ‘style’ into kid’s hair.

The Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit.

As seen in the Emmy nominated Netflix original series Project Mc2, McKeyla McAlister's Ultimate Lab Kit includes numerous science tools to investigate on their next mission. Conduct your own experiments at home or on the go, just like the girls from Project Mc2. 

A card game. The cards on a table.

Fletter is the fast paced word game for all the family and is sure to test even the quickest thinkers!  



Over the past few months we have tried out the Deluxe Rainbow Kit and the Gel-a-Peel Fashion Maker and Nail-a-Peel setGel-A-Peel can be used to customise almost anything! The gel formula sticks to most household fabrics and surfaces, allowing you to create endless personalised designs! You can make bracelets and even decorate clothes!

Is there anything your children would fancy here?
