Everyone LOVES slime – except the parents, who have to clean up the mess! Safe slime, with everything your kids need to totally get stuck in and make a massive mess in your house; make sure you put down newspaper first…
Fingerlings are wonderful for the kids, and you don’t get much cooler than a Fingerling T-Rex that glows, and has infra-red eyes. If he misbehaves, put him back in the Jail. But he has a tendency to want to escape, so keep an eye on him….
Every year on the Dream Toys list there is a toy that the adults want, as well as the kids. And THIS is it this year; the Hogwarts LEGO set. Do we really need to tell you what this is; stunning Lego and amazing characters, so much in the package it is bursting. Just a wonderful gift for any Harry Potter fan, and even though that aren’t. It is expensive; but £89.99 worth of play value, as it’ll keep the kids entertained for DAYS.
If the Hogwarts Castle is out of your price range, don’t worry, the Harry Potter Training Wand is only £25, so hopefully more within budget. Learn and master 11 different spells, and you can learn on your own or play with a friend. The wand gives sound feedback so the kids know they have cast the spells correctly too.
Finally, somewhere to store the LOL Dolls that you keep on tripping over! This is a 3 in 1 playset, display and carry case for the LOL Dolls your kids are collecting. It holds about 55 dolls and accessories, and includes a vew different places to play with them too, including a chic café, fashion boutique, and pizza parlour.
This is the least expensive of the 12 toy store items for your kids, and its one of the new LOL collectibles. There are 15 to collect, and each doll comes with a mystery disguise. The disguise magically transforms into multiple fashion accessories too.
Are you ready to do battle?!? You can play inside or out, day or night, and the laser vests take 8 hits before you are out. You can be team red or blue, or go rogue and take out anyone you fancy. Play one of one, or in teams. The possibilities are endless; bring Fortnite into the real world for your kids!
Taking of Fortnite, wouldn’t it be nice to get the kids OFF the game one in a while? Hasbro agree, and have thankfully developed a Monopoly game from the craze for this year. Perhaps it won’t be so hard to get them away from screen with this around now? Players need to claim locations, battle their foe, and survive the Storm to compete. There are also 27 amazing outfits to choose from as well.
Paw Patrol is every little ones favourite TV show, and this year we have the Fire Truck from the series to play with in your living room. This is the ultimate rescue vehicle and includes a 2ft ladder, flashing lights, and lots of realistic sounds for imaginative play. Comes with water cannons, and enough space for all the 6 characters (not included) to fit too.
We all need a Unicorn in our lives now, right? 🦄 And THIS unicorn even poops slime – why wouldn’t you want this in your house? You kids will love it, and it even includes one of 20 magical surprises with each unicorn too.
