The Sparkle Club have lots of very pretty gift ideas for Little Princesses. I have been recently shopping for a birthday gift and found some really excellent items at surprisingly good value – very good value. If you are looking for matching shoes, bags and hair accessories you should have a look online before you shop elsewhere and spend a lot more money.
From ‘Technology Will Save Us’ – the DIY Speaker Kit is absolutely a super gift for any child – even the ‘bigger’ kids! It blew my mind – what a gift, its technology but also creative and requires kids to use their brains and their hands so they are utilising several skills to make something amazing.
The Nerf MEGA Mastodon Blaster is one MEAN machine. My 8yr old son has an addiction to Nerf guns – however, the more mums I talk to, it seams this is quite a ‘catching’ addiction and it can even spread to certain ‘dads’ if they are not careful!
Socker Boppers are a great way of keeping your kids entertained without batteries or a screen in sight! My son and daughter play with these together and, for once, I need not worry that one will hurt the other in a play fight.
The Hank Change and Chat Toy from Finding Dory is very unusual – I love it! I adored the film as well, it’s such a great family movie and lived up to it’s reputation as a great sequel to Finding Nemo.
Hank the octopus can be placed on different coloured surfaces and he will change to the same colour as that particular surface. As an added bonus and thrill for the kids, he speaks several phrases from the film as well!
- Talking character toy
- Hank from Finding Dory
- Recites phrases at the push of a button
- Lights up to match certain colours
- Includes a colour wheel
- H10 x W18 x L22cm approx
- Suitable for children aged 3 years+
My little niece would love this for Christmas. I took her to see Finding Dory and she loved watching the antics of this octopus.
Its great value for only £30.95.
Available from all good toy shops in stores and online.
The Disney Store is one of my children’s favourite shops. Our nearest store is Belfast and we never visit without the kids having a look around and getting a few little gifts. Despite getting older, they still love Disney and each of them have Disney items on their Christmas lists this year again – even my 13 year old.
My son loved The Lion King and he is also crazy about the sequel – The Lion Guard. He has this fab set picked out for Christmas.
The Turbospoke Bicycle Exhaust System is a pretty cool addition to any bicycle. My son is 7yrs and he has this gadget which is available now from Smythstoys.com It’s only £14.99 and suitable for children from the age of 5yrs and over.
This system is super easy to fix on – I managed to do this without any help from hubby so I was rather impressed!
My son had great fun decorating his new exhaust system with the stickers and now he sounds just like his daddy’s motorbike when he peddles. There are three sounds cards which are attached to the spokes which gives the option for 6 different bike sounds. There are 24 stickers included so some of them even managed to make their way on to my daughter’s bicycle! These are also water proof – another bonus as they last in wet weather.
This is a great stocking filler for only £14.99.

I have honestly and intently scoured the shops and internet for a tablet for my 7 year old son. I have read all about every tablet on the market and discussed the pros and cons with hubby. There was only one choice for us and the decision was simply – even though the research took days! It you are looking for a tablet for kids as well this Christmas the choice is easy – choose the LeapPad Platinum!
The LeapPad Platinum is a fab product from Leapfrog. We have had Leapfrog items in the house from the kids came along and they have proved to us that they stand the test of time very well. Read More
