20 Great Gift Ideas for Kids this Christmas
Monday, 26 Nov 2012
Hang on, did you say it’s only 29 days till Christmas?
Gifts for their room:
It’s not a stylish abode until your kid has in on the fun. For little ones with a love of animals, these cute decorative animal heads will be a massive hit.
To be the talk of the house (and amongst their friends), this table football, a spectacular reinterpretation of an old classic, will be an extra special treat for older kids (and us too). Double whammy!
If you’re looking for something super special for tiny tots, the Hi Ho Sheepskin, a novel take on the traditional rocking horse, will keep them amused for hours.
For budding fashionistas:
The Harimuka Style studio is the perfect present for little fashionistas who’ll go crazy creating their own catwalk designs.
If the girls want to make like their mums, some arm candy will do the trick. Look no further than this Bambini ball charm bracelet.
And for boys and girls alike, the Seedling Design your own superhero cape will make the best gift for mini superheroes. Superman or Wonder Woman, take your pick!
And for a gift to yourself (shh we won’t tell), play dress-up with the kids at Minor Avenue.
Kids who love to play house will appreciate this new prop: a red wooden pram to bring baby around market in. For more house-obsessed tots, this ultra modern Stockholm Doll’s house is our dream come true. How cool is that pool!
A fabulous floor standing puppet theatre by Moulin Roty will appeal to kids who like an audience (and let’s face it, they all do). It means they can keep everyone else entertained too.
For a gift that provides maximum fun and giggles, check out the Zooma Splat X Smack Shot, a futuristic hi-tech catapult with awesome launching powers.
Wait for the screams as they unwrap this retro pink pedal car, just the gift if you’ve got a budding Lady Penelope in the family, whilst this seriously smart wooden BIT Bike in hot pink will wow tiny tots – all their friends will want one too.
They’ll think you’re the world’s best parent if you get them this Playsam ride on roadster that promises to make any kid’s first car a special one. It’s the coolest car we’ve ever seen and bonus: this toy will actually look cool parked in the living room.
For little bookworms:
Books are always a hit with kids and make great stocking fillers or extra presents. Fairy Tales, the first work of fiction by Viktor and Rolf, is the book to get this Christmas for style-conscious babies, whilst The girl who loved danger storybox is a different kind of storybook that will go down a treat. It has actual props and characters to play with.
For maximum brownie points this Christmas, pick up a brand new Nintendo Wii U console. It’s so new it’s not yet available in Singapore, but should be in stores from December.
Go outdoors (or just stay in):
For little adventurers, this new VW Campervan Play Tent, a replica tent of the iconic vehicle we all know and love, will be just the ticket. Throw in this brilliant Inflatable remote control R2D2 and they even have a camping pal!
