My Kiddicare Christmas gift guide!

I think everyone knows by now what I think of Kiddicare! I LOVE them! I visit their Lakeside store regularly and also find things that I need from Kiddicare online. The main reasons I love them are that the range of products they stock is vast, meaning that I (usually) only need to shop in one place. The prices are updated everyday to ensure that they are giving you the best deal. I never feel like I have to go away and compare my prices with Kiddicare, I am confident that they have found me the best deal. Last but by no means least.. the staff in store are amazingly friendly and helpful. I was in the Lakeside store last week and I was greeted with a smile, my queries were answered and the lady at the till even joked with me about how long I had been browsing! It was nice to be noticed and helped when needed, yet not pestered! The lady at the till was right by the way, I was making the most of shopping without the children and was in the store almost two hours! Oops!

There is 3 for 2 on all Kiddicare toys from the Buzzing Brains, Sunny Safari and Woodland ranges,running from 5th November to 2nd December 2013 inclusive, in-store, online and via the Kiddicare mobile app. With this in mind I have put together a Christmas gift guide for young children under 5 to help give you ideas for the little monkeys in your life!

Starting with babies, they can often be difficult to buy for. I know a few parents who will have young babies to buy for this Christmas and have already mentioned that they are struggling for ideas.

Sunny Safari Activity Elephant
Suitable from birth he is baby’s new best friend! He’s made with brightly coloured fabric, and includes lots of different textures and activities to explore such as crinkle ears, wiggle flower, teether, squeaker, mirror and rattle rings. Millie has a similar toy and she was fascinated with it as a young baby. RRP £12.99

Buzzing Brains grow with me Melody Gym - Suitable from 3 months and designed to encourage three stages of development - laying, sitting and standing – this clever gym adapts to keep little ones playing and learning as they grow. Lots of repositionable toys to touch; light up moon and stars to stimulate the senses; buttons to press rattles and rollers to pin and shake all included. Babies are certain to get lots of use out of this toy its something that they will be able to use throughout the whole of the forthcoming year. RRP £24.99

Press n go bunny - Suitable from 6 months, this bunny will get little ones mobile as they try to keep up with their new friend. Press the buttons for movement and music. Simple, repetitive – a sure fire hit! RRP £7.99.

Now moving onto the toddlers, this can be a tricky age to buy for, we have really struggled for ideas for Millie this year. But I do have some ideas on my list after my visit to Kiddicare last week!

Buzzing Brains wooden building blocks - Suitable from 12 months, Sort shapes, sizes and colours for endless hours of fun and learning whilst they develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.I am a great lover of wooden toys. They are hard wearing and both of my children seem to love all of their wooden toys! RRP £11.99

Sunny Safari Zebra rocking animal - Suitable from 18 months A wild addition to any playroom, this gorgeous rocking animal will help improve your tot’s balance and leg muscles. Having looked at this rocking Zebra close up in store last week I can honestly say this is beautiful. Its well made, and looks like it would last a long time! RRP £39.99

Buzzing Brains magnetic number puzzle - Suitable from 2 years, it encourages your child's first steps towards writing numbers. Colourful graphics add fun to help with learning to trace the numbers with the ball and magnetic pen, which has an easy grip handle. I actually bought this last week as a stocking filler for Millie. She plays with something similar at the local Sure Start Centre so I am confident that she will be very happy when she opens this! The big plus for me of course is that it makes no mess! RRP £12.99

Buzzing Brains cut and play vegatables - Suitable from 3 years, these are great for pretend cooking role play. Also a good way to introduce different foods to young children. Encourages imaginative play, develops hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. Both Chester and Millie love imaginative play, Chester especially. This is the kind of toy that would get hours of play in our house. RRP £12.99

So there you go, those are my recommendations all of which are included in that fab 3 for 2 offer! You can find all of these plus loads more ideas on the Kiddicare website. Or pop into any of the eleven Kiddicare superstores where you can even gift wrap your presents for free too!

So have you started your Christmas shopping yet, or is it still on your list of to do's?!
