CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE FOR KIDS


Christmas time is so magical for kids but can be so stressful for us parents. Although I absolutely love Christmas, I still get stressed when it comes to buying Christmas presents for the kids. There are so many out there these days but not only that, I personally don't like to spend so much on a toy/item if I know it'll be just chucked under the bed and hardly played with through the year - or ever. But of course, there will be certain toys I don't mind spending quite a fair bit on if I know they'll play with it. I've gathered a few toys that are suitable for all ages from 5+ years.

Paw Patrol Sea Patroller
This is probably one of the must-have toys this Christmas. Paw Patrol have become quite popular this year. My Middle, Elliw, absolutely loves them. This Sea Patroller has been a huge hit in our house and is great quality too. A figure, vehicle and five other items also come with the Sea Patroller.

Ideal for ages: 5+ years

JOJO Siwa Microphone
If you haven't heard of JOJO Siwa/Bow, where have you been? Especially if you have school kids. JOJO Siwa has been so popular for the past few months, with those gigantic hair bows. There are now more products to add to the JOJO range. The microphone is one. It has the popular hit 'Boomberang' and lights up. Also has other additons. It'll be a huge hit for any child who loves to sing and loves JOJO Siwa.
