7 Great Toy Ideas For Christmas



7 Great Toy Ideas For Christmas

Still wondering what to get the little ones for Christmas? We’ve created a list of seven of the most in demand toys for children for Christmas 2021.

#1 Paddington Bear Plush Chair

This is a Paddington version that offers more than only cuddles, he also offers the ideal perch to watch storytime and Christmas morning cartoons. Dressed in a trademark red hat, this bear is also covered in a plush soft fabric along with a cushioned seat. This idea is already well worth it for just Christmas pictures alone.



#2 Vtech Kidi DJ Mix

From the famous words of some of our best acts “hey girls, hey boys, superstar DJs, here we go”. That record deal for a musical prodigy could be a little bit closer when you buy the VTech’s Kids DJ Deck, allowing children from the age of 6 and up to record their own tracks. They can also learn what it is like to be a DJ when they use the 4 music styles and 15 pre-set tracks while the Bluetooth option also allows you to connect the device to an external source of music. It also features disco lights that flash in different colors to get the party started.

#3 Kugoo Kirin E-Scooter

Kugoo are one of the top brands in electric scooters for adults and it would make sense that they’d turn their expertise towards a children’s version. This electric scooter for kids has a lower top speed than adult scooters and a shorter stopping distance, making it safer than adult models. It’s one of the big today for 2021. 

#4 Harry Potter Lego

This 1176-piece Lego set builds into a 40cmx40cmx11cm, 3-floor Hogwarts castle. It comes with an underground Chamber of Secrets (with the iconic circular door), and a dining room. It also includes accessories such as wizard tiles, along with 10 mini-figures including Tom Riddle, Harry, Weasley, Ginny, Dumbledore, Lockhart, Gilderoy, the Basilisk, Nearly Headless Nick, and a golden Voldermort. The fantastic modular design allows you to move the room around with brilliant accessories. Some of these include chocolate frogs, a sorting hat, wizard cereal, and owls.

#5 Bluey Jumbo Toy

This is a super soft 46cm version of CBeebies latest star. It only offers outstanding cuddles but just about every child tester absolutely loved this toy. One already takes his Bluey where ever he goes, including watching the telly, in his garden, at the park, and when he goes to bed.

#6 SAVITA 12 Colors 2400 Strands Hair Tinsel Strands Kit with Tools

The tinsel season may be here, yet not only your tree can benefit from a glitzy makeover. This is a hair kit allowing your child to thread sparkly plastic bits into their hair creating a fantastic Christmassy transformation. With the use of a hoop, the pieces secure to the hair using pliers that could stay in place for a few weeks. Before the next term of school starts, they are easy to remove without damaging the hair. Due to the hardware that this kit involves we suggest the Tinsel Extension kit for an older child or if you are prepared to supervise.

#7 Fisher-Price Ultimate 4 in 1 Learning Bot

An interactive 30cm-high robot that can be taken apart to create 3 smaller robots that move, rattle, or light up (outstanding choice for chase and crawl games). This robot includes 120 different songs, phrases and sounds about counting, numbers, shapes, the alphabet, and colors. It is not the cheapest but is appealing for babies to older toddlers. Our tester of 8-months enjoyed crawling after the bots, while his sister of 2-years clung onto the fully-assembled robot, proudly shouting “I love him, he is my little robot”.
