Wicked Uncle Toy Review

wicked-uncle-toy-review

Anyone who has kids knows that although they can sometimes be quite easy to buy for, they can also be pretty specific in what they want and those toys aren't always easy to find. That's where Wicked Uncle can help. Aimed at all the family, from of course the parents but aunties, uncles and even godparents too.

This company stock a wide range of toys that would be suitable for any occasion such including the all important Christmas and birthdays. On their site everything is divided up into age and gender but they also make sure that you can search by interest too because we all know that girls and boys can play with whatever they like, no toy is truly gender specific.

With their slogan being "Brilliant Children's Presents", Wicked Uncle certainly don't disappoint. Now before I go on with my post I will say that this is a picture heavy post as I think pictures speak louder than words when it comes to showing just how good toys can be, I think they look on the kids faces says more than I could ever say.

I was asked if I would like to pick a variety of toys for my girls to play with, I was kindly provided with a £40 voucher my only problem was deciding on just what to put in my basket because there is honestly so much to choose from.

What is fantastic about Wicked Uncle is that they offer not only a gift wrapping service but they also provide cards for things such as birthdays too, taking all the hard work out of it, it's as simple as click and send. And  even better they even provide thank you postcards with your name and address on within the package so that the child can indeed thank the gift giver with ease.

What I ended up choosing was a right mixture, things that all my girls could appreciate separately or together. I got to choose from the quirky items through to the helpful items and even outdoor items, there didn't seem to be any idea missed. You can see the contents of what I ordered below :

I chose the Temporary Colour Hairlights from Interplay, the Fairy and Unicorn Torch Projector, the Unicorn Squeeze Popper and the Mega 24 inch Space Hopper.

Now I tried to be fair in my selections, each one was specifically for a certain child but I also knew that each one could be shared.

I chose the torch projector for my youngest because of late she has been reluctant to go to bed by herself and I though this might convince her that being alone isn't too bad and I'm pleased to say it worked. Projecting pictures on the floor, wall or ceiling it's provided some much needed entertainment and made her forget about being the first one to go to bed.

Now I chose the Space Hopper for my 6 year old but it was actually my 10 year old that took off with it first, trying to get action shots of this was rather tricky shall we say, they kept coming out blurry!

Next I chose the Hairlights for my 8 year old who is obsessed with all things hair and make up and ok I'll admit I wanted to have a try too, ( hubby thinks I'm too old to dye my hair). These are fun and easy to use and thankfully wash out with ease too.

Last but by no means least was the Unicorn Squeeze Popper, my eldest like me loves unicorns to this unique gift was perfect for her but I can tell you that it is also a pretty good stress reliever too!

Wicked Uncle is certainly a more than ideal place to buy presents for kids. The site is simple to navigate and the selection of toys is almost overwhelming, you certainly won't be stuck when it comes to choice. With prices ranging from small budget right up to big bucks there is definitely something for any child to be found there, well worth checking out in my opinion.
