Review: Wicked Uncle Awesome Gifts For Kids

Friday, May 27, 2016

A few weeks ago I was asked to review some products from I was given a £40 voucher to spend on the website to choose whatever we wanted. I was so impressed with the huge variety of products on their website but it did make it incredibly difficult to narrow it down and spend just £40!

Wicked Uncle specialise in cool toys and gifts for kids of all ages. You can search by gender, age or category to find the right gift for you. The gifts listed are from a large range of well known and loved brands as well as some you may not have heard of yet. One thing they all have in common is that they are pretty damn awesome!

With Gracie being a budding little scientist at the moment I decided on the Geode Discovery Kit (£11.95) from Brainstorm Toys. The kit contains three geodes ready to be broken, safety goggles, a magnifying glass and a detailed instruction guide. It wasn't the easiest of activities and we had to resort to asking for Daddy's help but it was so much fun and the end product was very impressive. You can see exactly how we got on by watching our Youtube video below;

The next item I chose was Janod Jungle Snakes and Ladders (£24.95), we love playing games together as a family and snakes and ladders was a childhood favourite of mine so I couldn't wait to introduce it to the kids. The board is a giant jigsaw to put together before you can play the game and the figures are large wooden animals. It is a lovely big board to play on and such a fun game. We are a pretty competitive family so family game time is a very funnt experience. Zach seems to be the snakes and ladders champion though. It is definitely a game of luck! You can see our fun video below;

Both items have bought hours of fun to our household the past few weeks and I would definitely shop at Wicked Uncle again!
