Great Gifts At Great Prices
Let’s not get too carried away with robots, drones and life-like dolls. There are loads of really great toys and games for Christmas under £20. All these ideas are suitable for either gender but do check age suitability carefully before making a purchase.
Toys And Games For Christmas – Kinetic Sand
Kinetic Sand is magic sand that never dries out. It makes for great creative play but is also just very soothing to run through your fingers. My younger daughter is a fan. We like this set because it has a storage box which is useful. Read our blog post on Kinetic Sand.
Toys And Games For Christmas – Galt Science Lab
On the list of Best New Toys 2017 and very much in line with the trend for STEAM toys. This is a good first lab set which contains test tubes and rack, goggles, bouncy ball crystals and mould, magnifying glass, spinner, slime, food colourings, Petri-dish, pipette, pH scale and paper, stickers, notepad and more.
Toys And Games For Christmas – Silly Sausage
This was very big last year but still a ‘must have’ game. It’s a speed reaction game featuring the super-sized silly sausage.
Toys And Games For Christmas – Guess Who
Our all-time favourite ever game. Pretty educational too, I think. When my daughter was very young, she used to enjoy asking: “Does it have eyes?”
Toys And Games For Christmas – 3D Eiffel Tower Jigsaw
We went through a big 3D jigsaw phase a while back. They are completely addictive. This one is still standing but take care when building as it is fairly fragile. See our post on 3D Jigsaw Puzzles.
Toys And Games For Christmas Slime Factory
Slime, goos, putties, foams and gunges have been a real hit this year. We had quite a large slime factory operating out of our utility room for most of the summer. This is a great kit that children will love.
Toys And Games For Christmas – Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
Trivial Pursuit game for Potter fans. Test your knowledge on the following: The Dark Arts, Hogwarts, Magical Spells & Potions, Magical Objects, Magical People and Animals & Magical Creatures.
Toys And Games For Christmas – Rubik’s Void
On our list of Toy Crazes. The Rubik’s Cube never really went away but this updated version is very popular indeed.
Toys And Games For Christmas – Oonies
New for 2017, the balloon modelling kit is on our list of Toys For Xmas 2017. We bought it for a young relative who really enjoyed it but be careful, some parts are not that robust.
