Kids Presents Gifted By A Wicked Uncle

Question: How can you amaze and impress your children when it comes to present choices this Christmas?

Answer: By thinking outside the box when it comes to presents, avoiding the Barbies and Star Wars that are found on every supermarket shelf, and instead looking for something creative, funny, brain expanding and different. The sort of present that a cool, wicked uncle might chose for their favourite niece or nephew. The sorts of presents you can find at Wicked Uncle, who have recently taken on Uncle Christmas to help make 2017 super special for the young and young at heart.

We have lots of interesting, fun and unusual presents and we have teams of elves under the leadership of Uncle Christmas who can write Xmas and birthday cards and even gift wrap for you.

Wicked Uncle has a wide range of toys that are suitable for boys and girls of all ages. They also arrange their website by age groups, so if you are looking for a gift idea but aren’t really sure what to get, they will give you some ideas to choose from.

Here are a few of my key picks from a brilliant website.

Fluffimals – Bring a Bear to Life

If your little one is obsessed with the Build a Bear factory, but you are not quite as obsessed with the price, then the Fluffimals Bring a bear to life is the perfect gift this Christmas. It is your own bear factory where you can stuff your bear, give it a heart and basically allow your child to get creative. It’s a fantastic Christmas gift idea that will give your child something to do once the Turkey is eaten on Christmas afternoon.

Football Brainbox

The perfect game for the whole family to play on Christmas Day, or over the Christmas period. Football Brainbox allows you to study facts and figures about teams from the English Football League for just 10 seconds and then looks to see what you can remember. This ranges from questions such as when was the team formed, to what colour socks do they wear? You can find out who is the football brainbox in your family.

How will you think outside the box when it comes to Christmas Gifts this year.

The Rocket Singing Machine – Fabulous Fun!

If you have a budding Adele or Ed Sheeran, then you may want to take a look at the Rocket Singing Machine. Promising to turn any music fan into a ‘singing superstar’, the easy to use microphone not only allows your voice to be amplified, it also allows you to add echo and sound effects. You can also link it to the internet via Bluetooth, thus allowing you to also play music through the singing machine that you can then sing along too. This is hours of fun for your children, and also a perfect addition to house parties for karaoke fans (although you might want to invest in some earplugs for the neighbours…)

The Rocket singing machine is very easy to use. It takes 3 AAA batteries and is then operated by a switch in the centre of the device. Two further switches on the front of the machine allow you to control sound and echo, and you can simply use the machine in this way, to sing along to MTV or the radio, or just to sing your own songs. In fact, you don’t have to sing songs. My boy has used his machine to commentate on televised football, or just to shout slogans and catchphrases. (unbelievable tekkers being his fave).

The Rocket can then also be used to play music through connection to a bluetooth device, you can then sing along to all your favourite songs, adjusting your vocals  with the control switches. It is completely wireless, meaning you can totally polish up any performance and add dance steps until you totally rival Ariana Grande.

Competition Time

The Rocket Wireless Singing Machine is looking for a star to be the face of Rocket Mic. Could it be your child? If you have a budding star simply send their best singing video to the Rocket Star competition that you can find by clicking here.

Wild Science Perfume Factory – Making Science Fun.

Science is one of those subjects that notoriously finds it hard to attract admirers. I don’t mind admitting I hated it at school, and my little boy Joe now states it is his worst subjects, and that he hates Thursday because this is Science day. Clearly it is having a bad rap, so anything that makes it more interesting and fun has to be a good thing. Which is why the Wild Science Kits from Flair are such a fabulous idea.

The Perfume Factory is perfect for anyone with an interest in creating their own scents and pot pourri. It comes with all the equipment and ingredients to create your own signature scent and even has a lovely little glass bottle in case you want to present on of your creations as a gift. The set has 5 small bottles for experimenting with different scent combinations, which you can create by extracting and blending your own formulas. The set comes with an array of real base notes and top notes just like real perfumes are made.

You can also create perfumed Ruby Gel Pot Pourri with this kit as a red colouring and crystals are also included. All the equipment fits very neatly into the pink storage unit which means you do not have to keep putting everything back into the box after each use. This is a fabulous way to promote real science by making it fun and creative, and also putting it into a real life concept with a very desirable end product – who doesn’t love perfume?

The instructions are easy to use and follow, and also include details and information on how to do a patch test with each new fragrance. Even though the kit is recommended for children aged 8+, adult supervision is still recommended with this toy.

 

This kit is just lovely, a great gift idea at £14.99, and currently available at Smyths Toys.
