Christmas Gift Guide 2020

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and if you are anything like us, you LOVE the look on children’s faces when they open your gifts! 

This year, we thought we would put together our top gift ideas for kids to help you spread some Christmas cheer! These are all toys or games that we have used as a family and we wouldn’t recommend anything that we didn’t enjoy!

1. Pixies Crystal Flyers, 5+

The Pixies Crystal Flyers by Spin Masters are on the top of Alegria’s list (which is why it is still in the package!!) They are graceful and easy to fly with an in-built infrared sensor in the feet which allows you to guide your pixie with hand movements. How cool is that! It comes complete with a USB charger allowing “no batteries required” flight after flight.

Age: 5+; RRP $49.99 ~ Stockists:  Big W, Kmart, Target and all good toy retailers

2. BANANAGRAMS, 7+

We have been playing Bananagrams by Moose Toys throughout isolation and remote learning (they were kind enough to send it to Alegria and Isaac as a gift). As we start venturing out into the wide world a little more, we are taking this quick and fun game with us. There are many variations that you can play, and our kiddos have made up their own games.

They don’t know it’s educational and they love it!
The tiles (and bag) are easy to clean – which makes it perfect for outdoor adventures.

Age: 7+; RRP $25.00 ~ Stockists:  Big W, Kmart, Target and all good toy retailers

3. MECCANO JUNIOR OPEN ENDED BUCKET, 5+

The Meccano Junior 150-Piece free play bucket from Spin Masters enables unlimited creativity! Isaac hasn’t used Meccano before so this was ideal for him and other first-time builders. There is an easy-to-follow instruction booklet for three different builds or kids can construct and customise, snap nuts onto parts to make them lock; and use bolts to hold pieces together as they build whatever their hearts desire!

Age: 5+, RRP $49.99 ~ Stockists: Kmart, Toy World and independent toy retailers

4. SPACETALK, CHILDREN’S ALL-IN-ONE MOBILE PHONE, SMART WATCH AND GPS (Ages 4-12 years)

SPACETALK IMAGE 5

SPACETALK, a children’s all-in-one mobile phone, smart watch and GPS tracker that both parents and children will LOVE. We have been using it for 4 months and love it! With the SPACETALK we are able to keep connected  with the kids without them having access to the internet and the nasties of social media.

SPACETALK’s enhanced school mode feature, enables parents to specifically select which
watch functions to disable during school hours, such as incoming and outgoing calls,
messaging, step counter, location and stopwatch.

RRP: $349

5. COOL MAKER GO GLAM NAIL STAMPER (Ages: 8 to 11)

The Cool Maker Go Glam Nail Stamper from Spin Masters has put the OMG in DIY!  Alegria loved this all-in-one nail kit, which meant that she could easily stamp and style custom manicures in minutes. The kit comes with five patterns and two nail polish colours so she could mix n’ match to personalise looks with enough product to give at least 12 manicures. The nail polish formula is completely non-toxic and kid-safe. 

Age: 8+; RRP $39.99 ~ Stockists: Big W, Kmart, Target and independent toy retailers

6. OLLYBALL (3+)

The Ollyball was designed for full-speed, full-force indoor play! The ball is super light and absorbs shock through a patented KrunchCOR® construction! We inflated ours in May and it is still up and going strong. We would definitely recommend it!

Available at Kmart and Catch.Com.Au

7. Cool Maker Hollywood Hair Studio 8+

Have you been wondering what to do with left over ribbon? Now your kids can design, customise and create their own hair extensions.  Simply decorate one of the coloured or pattern hair ribbons with marker pens then at the press of a button, transforms it into a super cute hair extension. 

I think this would be great for birthday parties and for sleepovers!

Age: 8+; RRP $39.99 ~ Stockists: Big W, Kmart, Target and independent toy retailers
