Christmas Gift Ideas From Tigerparrot

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.

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.

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.

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.
