Some last minute toy ideas for Christmas!

Over the past year my girls have been lucky enough to try out some fantastic toys and I thought I would do a round up of them to give you some last minute ideas for Christmas gifts!

All of these toys and games were sent to me free of charge in exchange for the blog post they featured in. I have not been asked to write this.

This fun kit comes with everything you need to create 3 bath bombs, each with a surprise figure to hide inside.

We had a shaky start and messed the first bath bomb up but soon got the hang of it and the bath bombs Ellie made looked fab!

The So Bomb DIY, 3 Pack has a RRP of £9.99 and is available from leading retailers nationwide including the likes of Argos & Smyths.

It's bed time for three adorable bunnies. Colour them and make them cozy in their beds!

This is a great little craft set and it took Ellie about 40 minutes to complete. She still has the little bunnies now on one of her shelves in her bedroom.

The set costs around £9.99 and is available from places like Smyths, John Lewis, Hobbycraft and Studio.

The Bayala universe is being enchanted by new purple magic horses. The proud moon unicorn stallion and the dazzling star Pegasus mare guard their cute shooting star foal.

Ellie still plays with these and they have lasted well. They are available from Smyths with prices starting from £7.49.

Pop Pops Pets offers a combination of several of the best things in the world: fluffy slime, bubble popping, and the hunt for cute collectables. The packs come in different sizes. 3, 6, 12 and 15 packs.

These would make fantastic stocking fillers and are available from places like Smyths, The Entertainer and Argos. Prices start from £4.00.

These beautiful fortune cookies include a surprise bracelet with a charm and a paper fortune for good luck. Crack Lucky Fortune cookie open to see what the future has in store for you! There are 100 different bracelets to collect, with four levels of rarity as well as a coveted Ultra Lucky real gold dipped four leaf clover. The Lucky Fortune Cookie also doubles up as a key chain for little keepsakes. 

These would make a great addition to a stocking and can be bought from places like Claire's, Argos and other toy shops. 

Jibbergiggle takes everyday scenarios and challenges you to act them out using only ridiculous nonsense words and your own expressive face. Can you calm down a bear using only the words 'wimmy wozzle' or propose to your partner by saying 'patootie'? Master the art of spouting nonsense in silly noises, as others attempt to guess what exactly it is you're trying to do!

This is such a fun game and would be perfect to play with the family over Christmas. As well as it being sold online it is also available from John Lewis for £12.99

Blume dolls are a collectible doll packaged inside a flowerpot. You peel off the foil on the top of the flowerpot then fill the little watering can with water, and pour it on top. As you sprinkle the water on the "soil", the paper covering will disintegrate and the doll will magically bloom out of the flowerpot.

These are just adorable and are a lot of fun to "grow". You can buy Blume Dolls from Argos, Smyths and The Entertainer for round about £10.00. For the excitement and play value I think it is well worth the money.

Enter the world of Snapstar an immersive world of fashion, beauty, music, photography and design. There is a lineup of six dolls, each with her own unique personality and style that kids can dress up, customise and pose! The dolls come with a removable outfit with accessories and removable hair. You can buy additional outfits and hair separately for more fun.

Ellie loved these so much I have actually bought a couple more for her for Christmas. They are sold in most of the places where you can buy toys now and prices vary. You can get them anywhere from £9.99 right up to £20.00 so do look around if you are buying them.

You never know when Mr. Buster’s gonna blow! Pull My Finger is the hilarious game that combines 2 things that make everyone laugh, Monkeys & Farts! Spin the banana spinner, pull the Monkey’s finger, and watch his butt inflate with each pull! How big will his butt get? How long can he hold it in? Avoid the Farts and win! For 2 or more players. Fun for the whole family.

We love this game and we will be getting it out to play with the grandparents. hehehe You can buy this in most of the places where you can buy children's games for around £15.00.

Will Santa be bringing any of these toys for your children?
