The Wicked Uncle Toy Review

Sometimes I get a little stumped thinking about what would be a good gift for a child. Even my children! I know roughly developmentally what would be good for them but sometimes you want to get them a fun gift or something a bit different. Queue Wicked Uncle!

It is an online store selling gifts for children of a variety of ages, from a baby up to teens. I think one of my most favourite things about it, is that there is a age selector and you can click on and it will let you know what they think is suitable for a four year old, or an 8 year old, for example. This is really helpful – especially when you’re not buying for your own children, or if you don’t have children and don’t know where to start with gifts for kids.

There is a huge range of gifts and toys, it took me a while to decide but that is also because there are lots and lots of lovely things. There are puzzles and soft toys to things like bedside lamps and bug catchers – something for everyone.

We chose some puzzles, as they are very popular in our house. A dinosaur puzzle for Max and an animal one for Chloe, plus a Winnie the Pooh matching game.

Max loves puzzles so this was no different. He hasn’t done one this style before so he was really loving it! I like wooden toys so this is a big bonus (they’re just so much more durable and look better I think). It costs £15.99 which I think for what it is, is a little steep, though we are pleased with it.

Melissa and Doug have a lovely range of toys and their fuzzy touch farm animal puzzle was no different. Again, this is a wooden puzzle so a big tick from me there. Chloe has been enjoying it, with a little bit of help from her big brother. The fuzzy feel on the animals makes it more interesting for her too. She is only 1 so it is probably enough for her to deal with, but I think it could be better if there were more than 4 animals. This has a cost of £8.50 and I think that is totally reasonable, particularly for the Melissa and Doug brand.

The Winnie the Pooh rattle shakers and matching set has been a big hit with both kids – I didn’t think Max would be interested at all! I think he particularly likes to mis-match the ‘lids’ with the bases – hooligan 😉 Chloe likes taking her time to take the pots out and take the lid off and then put them all back again. I love that this comes in a reasonably small sized box that clips shut, so it can be used for travel easily. Think it will definitely be coming with us on our summer holiday. This costs £12.95 and think that is reasonable. It seems to work for a variety of children so you’d get your money’s worth.

The Wicked Uncle website is really easy to negotiate and looks good. The checkout process was really fast and easy, including options like PayPal for payment, which I really prefer. The delivery was amazingly quick too – really pleased with the service from Wicked Uncle.
