3 great gift ideas for your kids that you won’t have heard of

Are you looking for some gifts for the kids that are a little different? We have three for you here, including something that helps them WANT to brush their teeth; the Playbrush!

With every Christmas goes by, new and exiting presents for kids gets harder. The same companies release similar products every year to tempt you to part with our money. We have compiled a list of 3 present ideas you may have not heard of, but would put a smile on the face of any child!

First we have Playbrush , a new smart device that attaches to any manual toothbrush and transforms it into a game controller. For too long we have been subjected to daily tooth brushing battles, but now children can play fun mobile games while they learn to brush in the right areas and for long enough. Playbrush follows dentist’s advice to get kids brushing twice a day for 2 minutes, and connects to a smartphone or tablet device via wireless Bluetooth technology. At £39.99 (store) Playbrush represents a fun and useful gift, coaxing children into the perfect brushing habits for a lifetime. Only one device is needed per family and contains a weekly family leader board to decide the best brusher. Playbrush is a great entertaining and educational Christmas gift for the whole family.

The Playbrush is a new way for the kids to brush their teeth - tech and teeth cleaning combined for a lot of fun!

Another great present for kids this year would be Trunki’s ‘Paddlebak’. The suitcase maker has a range of waterproof backpacks that come in both Clownfish and Tropical fish designs, perfect for next years Pixar release of Finding Dory! It is surprisingly lightweight and waterproof, designed to stop wet stuff getting in or leaking out. It has reflective strips for increased visibility and an external dry pocket in the tail. Paddlebak comes in Medium or Large, meaning it’s perfect for kids aged 3-9. You can buy Paddlebak from most major highstreet retails for £19.99, providing a fun and durable Christmas present for active kids!

Have you thought of the PaddleBak as an alternative gift for the kids - might be worth checking it out?

We also really like Osmo, like Playbrush an award-winning device that works with the iPad and fosters technology education for children. There are five mobile games that leverage the iPad as a educational gaming station and help your children to use technology for good. The Starter Kit is currently £69.95 and includes the hardware and four different apps. We especially like the neat design and the idea of using the screen time of children in a useful way. Definitely a great present for innovative parents.

Osmo is a new interactive game, using tech and real world toys...definitely one the kids will love to receive as a gift.
