I have two boys so my life pretty much revolves around anything gross. (Hopefully this will change as baby girl gets older). So whenever it is a girls Birthday I have no idea what they are all in to or what would be suitable for their age. Boys yes, girls no! I usually try and search online and then end up having to ask the Mums what their daughters would like. This isn’t always that easy when you have a random invite come home in their book bag and you aren’t sure who the Mum is to ask. Sometimes you need a bit of help and Wicked Uncle is just the place for it.
On their webpage you can select who the present is for, boy, girl or gender neutral. Then there are age brackets broken down into yearly from baby -12, then teen and all ages. It’s my biggest boys Birthday in a few days and he is notoriously hard to buy for. I was able to go on to Wicked Uncle choose boy and age 8 and it came up with a huge list of toys that would be suitable for him. You can further change your search by selecting one of their categories;
- Wicked Fun
- Books and Games
- Fashion and Style
- Spooky and Spells
- Role Play
I looked for each of my children a baby girl, 4 year old boy and an 8 year old boy and loved all the suggestions. You can show results by popularity and by price so I had a look with both options and came up with some ideas that I wouldn’t have otherwise thought of.
I decided to get them all something from their recommendations and see how right they had got it.
I chose the Magnetic wooden blocks for baby girl
A Penguin popper for the 4 year old
Top secret intruder alarm for the almost 8 year old
Multi Puzzle Challenge for the big kid James!
The magnetic wooden blocks are a firm favourite of baby girls and she plays with them regularly. The penguin popper got taken to bed and is still played with weeks later. We had great fun building and fitting the top secret intruder alarm which is currentlty being used to keep his little brother out. The Multi Puzzle Challenge annoyed me as I couldn’t do it and pleased James as he could. All the products were good quality and pitched perfectly for the different ages.
If you are buying as a present they have a good selection of gift wrap, and will hand write the cards with a personalised message. They even include a pre-written thank you postcard for the child to send to you! If you order a birthday present from them, they will automatically remind you of the birthday again next year. I’m definitely going to use it for buying for my nieces and nephew and have already set up the reminders.
