Right, I have already shared with you this years For Her Christmas Gift Guide and the For Him Christmas Gift Guide and now it’s time to share the most important one – The Kids Christmas Gift Guide.
I don’t know about you, but I am finding it harder ever year choosing what toys to buy my kids. Normally as soon as we get a few toy catalogues through our door end of September, the kids are planing what is going to be on their list. The tell me all the time what’s on it and what is the most important item to get. But then come beginning of December, they present me with their wish list again, but this time it’s completely different!! The most important items that you just had to get them, they are no longer interested in and they now have a new more expensive favourite item. That’s why it’s a good idea to save your money up and get all the toys for the kids closer to the big day. At least you will have one item that is on their list.
Anyway, here is my Kids Christmas Gift Guide 2016.
Playmobil Emergency Medical Helicopter
My kids love Playmobil and as part of being a Playologist we get to try out a lot of their products. This Emergency Medical Helicopter is one of the kids favourite and would make a fantastic present this Christmas. It’s priced at £26.99. You can see our review here.
Num Noms are cute and collectable and smell delicious. You can stack them and race them with the motorised noms. My little girl loves these and has quite a few different packs of these. prices start from £2.99. You can see what we think of the Num Noms here.
