Has your child wrote their letter to Santa yet? Or their Christmas list? If the answer is yes you might be despairing about the amount of technology on it, or the cost of some of the items. But don’t despair. While it may be true that our kids are far more technologically advanced than we were, the truth is they still like to play, and traditional style toys and crafts that were made to last are still very popular.
Tigerparrot is a one stop children’s shop, and should certainly be on your list if you are looking for gifts for children this Christmas. It brings together the best baby and kid’s products from Great Britain and the Rest Of The World and collates them under one (online) roof, taking all the footwork out of searching for gifts,
This year it has put together an exceptional selection of toys and gift ideas that would certainly delight any child on Christmas morning. I’ve been perusing their collections and have picked out my favourite five items for Christmas 2018.

A unique personalised story for your child is a wonderful Christmas gift that you can enjoy together. Add in the fact that your child will be the star of the story and it gets even better. That is the premise of Behind the Magic Door, a story where your child is a character in the book, being gifted letters by other characters that will eventually spell their name.
As each story is for your child’s name, it means you will get a different story if you are buying one for each of your children.
