It is the time of the year where, if you are a parent, you’ll be thinking about what to get for Christmas. I already have quite a few things, but with one of the children having a December birthday too, I have to get really sorted and organised. The good news is that a lot of retailers are compiling lists of the things that are new to the market, or that they think will be big this Christmas, which I have found really interesting.
If you are looking for some ideas and inspiration, then here are some of the top toys that Amazon have for you this Christmas; are there any that will be on your list to buy? There’s a really good range, and something for all budgets.
Owleez is an interactive owl toy, that needs your little one to love and care for it. You can keep it warm, hug it, and just generally look after it as it responds to your touch. It makes noises and sounds and can even fly, when it is in a happy mood. At Amazon it is currently priced at £44.99, and comes in pink and white.
Linkimals Smooth Moves Sloth
The Linkimals Smooth Moves Sloth is a great toy for little ones, aged nine months an over. As the name sounds, the sloth dances and moves to music and sound, and flashes fun lights. It is a great interactive toy and is currently prices at £25.99.
L.O.L Winter Disco Bigger Surprise
If you have a little one aged around six or over, much like my daughter, you are bound to have heard of LOL dolls; she is obsessed. Amazon have an exclusive Winter Disco Bigger Surprise this Christmas, and it only just went on sale a few days ago. It comes with over sixty surprises, so you get plenty for your money, as it is priced at £89.99.
L.O.L Surprise 2 in 1 Glamper Fashion Camper
An alternative option when it comes to LOL dolls is the Glamper Fashion Camper. It is a huge gift, that extends to over 2×3 feet of fully furnished space to play, and it comes with one doll and several different areas like a light up pool and a fashion runway. I think it will work great if you already have a few dolls, so they can all play in the house. It is priced at £99.99.
LEGO Hidden Side Haunted High School Construction Set
Is there any good gift list that doesn’t come with LEGO on the list? My son and daughter both really love LEGO, but this Hidden Side Haunted High School Construction Set comes with something really unique, as you can use an app to see the set really come to life, once it has been built, of course. It is a fun and unique way of looking at things! It is currently priced at £88.
Paw Patrol Super PAWs Mighty Jet Command Centre
If you have Paw Patrol fans in your house, then the Paw Patrol Super PAWs Mighty Jet Command Centre is a must. It is a 2-in-1 transforming jet that switches from a deluxe jet into a mobile command headquarters. Fire discs from the disc launcher and activate real lights and sounds by pressing the button on the Mighty Jet’s engine. Sounds pretty fun, right? It is priced at £39.99.
Monopoly Voice Banking Electronic Family Board Game
If you love a game of Monopoly during your Christmas festivities, then the new Monopoly Voice Banking Electronic Family Board Game is a great idea, and a modern twist on the classic game. In this electronic version, Mr Monopoly is the Banker and manages the players’ money via his top hat. You simply press the button and say a command like, ‘Pay Rent on Piccadilly!’ – how very 21st century?! it is currently priced at £18.
Treasure X Kings Gold Treasure Tomb
The Treasure X Kings Gold Treasure Tomb contains a number of dig and discover unboxing experiences as well as a number of additional features, like traps, ladders and more so you can act out Treasure X moments. It is currently priced at £32.
If you want another modern version of a classic game, then how about getting up and getting moving with Pictionary Air? It is a funny twist on the classic drawing game. You just need to download the free Pictionary Air app and then you can take turns drawing in the air while your teammates guess the images that appear on the screen. Lots of fun! It is currently priced at £15.99 and is an Amazon bestseller.
Nerf Fortnite SP-L Blaster
Play Fortnite in real life with this Fortnite Nerf blaster that has a detachable barrel so that you can customise it for different ways to play. Attach the barrel for distance targeting; remove the barrel when you need a more compact look for smaller play areas or when you need to move fast and stay mobile. It is currently prices at £15.99, and I know my son would love it.
Have you made a start with your Christmas chopping yet? It would be great to hear what you think.
