One of the pleasures of Christmas is spoiling the kids, treating them to cool and funky presents that you know they will love. We have put together a few exciting ideas for the children this year…
Toy Story Talking Slinky Dog
One of Toy Story’s favourite characters has to be Slinky the Dog and now you can take home your very own Talking Slinky Dog toy.
Each of Slinky’s four feet have little wheels embedded in them and a string attached to his head so that you can bring Slinky with you on all of your travels. Of course his body is half dog and half Slinky, so whilst his head will keep up with you, there is no telling how long his behind will take to catch up.
The real appeal with Slinky Dog is his ability to talk! He is installed with 20 phrases that include, ‘Bark, bark, bark, bark, bark,’ ‘This here is the best day ever’ and ‘Yes sir-ree I’ve got a spring in my step,’ meaning there are just hours of fun waiting to be had with your new best friend.
Available from Disney for £26.95
Everyone remembers the craze that as Heelys, the trainers that have wheels in the heels, a hybrid between roller skates and sneakers. Well, they are still as popular as ever, not to mention great fun for whoever gets to unwrap them Christmas morning.
Skates.co.uk is a cool website that is dedicated to all things skating, whether it is blading, boarding or something else, they have everything you need, including Heelys. So what is special about them? Aside from the high quality and range of designs suited to boys and girls, the clincher is what comes with them.
Each set of Heelys from Skates.co.uk come with their very own CD from Flywalk that contains lots of exciting things, but most importantly Heelys Training, so your little one can start their skating career off in the safest way possible, as well as some rather funky sticker sheets so their new found love can be displayed wherever they go.
Our favourite set has to be the Heelys X2 Dual Up set. They have a vulcanized style outer sole and a synthetic patent upper. They come as lace ups, but also have a velcro tab to secure them once on. The assembly is super easy and instruction are on the inside of each box!
You can pick up a pair of Heelys from Skates.co.uk for £54.95
Lindt Santa Sleigh
For kids one of the most exciting things about Christmas has to be waiting for that big fellow Santa to delivery presents around the world in his sleigh. Lindt have immortalised, (well until the kids get their hands on it), this fantastic event in none other than delicious Lindt chocolate.
The story goes that during advent a Master Chocolatier for Lindt was reading a Christmas tale to his young daughter when she asked him why the Lindt Santa didn’t have any reindeer of his own. In that magical moment, the Master Chocolatier decided to make the famous golden reindeer every year to accompany Santa, but most importantly e chose to have a tiny bell around each ones neck, so as to announce Father Christmas’s arrival.
Of course once Santa had his faithful sleigh pullers, Lindt were able to create a fabulous gift set containing both of them and two signature miniature golden bears!
Frozen Fever Summer Solstice Gift Set
Frozen fever truly gripped children up and down the country, they proudly sung ‘Let It Go’ at the top of their lungs and gleefully watched as Elsa and Anna sung, danced and frolicked.
The second instalment of the smash hit animated film was aptly named Frozen Fever and now to celebrate its release Disney have created this fabulous Frozen Fever Summer Solstice Gift Set, which includes two dolls, both Elsa and Anna dressed in their Summer Solstice outfits which are beautifully made ad extremely pretty!
