Today I am sharing a few ideas for presents for young children from the team over at TOMY, as well as giving away two of them to one lucky winner!
I am always on the lookout for inspiration for gift ideas for my two kids, as well as the friends and family that we like to buy for at this time of year. So let me take you through a few toys that TOMY are recommending you take a look at…
Gifts for babies
Younger tots will love cuddling up to Symphony Oscar from Lamaze who is ready to conduct all kinds of magical melodies straight from his home in the North Pole. Suitable for ages 6 months and over. RRP £19.99.
Lamaze’s Gardenbug Wrist Rattle Foot Finder set is the perfect gift for newborn babies. The cute and colourful bugs feature contrasting patterns and bright colours that help stimulate vision, interaction and discovery, putting all of the fun within your baby’s reach. Suitable for 0 months onwards. RRP: £13.99.
Gifts for toddlers
Jumbo Jamboree will be bringing the party when he rolls into town on Christmas morning. This clever little elephant on wheels will roll merrily along playing a happy tune, with toddlers following in his wake to get a better look at all his lively colours. But Jumbo has an extra trick up his trunk. Pull him apart into seven pieces and you have an orchestra on your hands! Suitable from 12 months onwards. RRP: £20.99.
Remote Control Rescue Boat from TOMY’s Bath range. This clever boat has a sound activated remote allowing little ones to drive and steer the boat around the bath! Designed for little hands, children simply press the remote once to move the boat forward and again to halt. When pressed again, children will be amazed as water shoots out of Captain Cat’s water cannon! Suitable for ages 12months and over. RRP £17.99.
Work on the farm does not stop just because it is Christmas and the Remote Controlled Johnny Tractor will get young farmers whizzing around at the push of a button or two! This chunky John Deere vehicle has soft-touch surfaces with rounded edges for safe play and with its easy-to-use remote control, kids just have two buttons to press – one to move forwards, the other to spin around. Suitable for 18 months +. RRP: £22.99.
Aquadoodle has added a little zing to its colour palette, by adding neon colours to the Aquadoodle Super Colour Deluxe. Simply fill the Aquadoodle pen with ordinary tap water, run the nib over the magic mat and see the neon colours come alive! TOMY has also unveiled brand new themed mats to its range for Christmas, which feature variety of popular television characters, including Thomas & Friends and Chase and the gang from Paw Patrol. Suitable for 18 months +. RRP £25.99.
Gifts for children aged 3+
Pokémon fans are in for a treat with the lovable My Friend Pikachu plush! Hug Pikachu for cute ear movement, sounds and light-up cheeks. My Friend Pikachu laughs and talks, and stands at 10” high with a soft yellow fabric. Pikachu has adorable red circles on its cheeks and features over 10 fun sounds and phrases. Suitable for ages 3+. RRP 19.99.
The fun doesn’t stop there for Pokémon trainers this festive season with the release of the Pokémon Z Ring on the 23 November – TOMY’s first ever-video game-synchronised toy. The Pokémon Z Ring can be synchronised with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon to enhance the play experience. Players wearing the Z-RING will experience sounds, lights and vibrations as the Z-Ring reacts to the Nintendo 3DS Family Systems and game-play element: the devastating new attack called the Z-MOVE. The Pokémon Z Ring can be used without the video game in Role-Play mode! Bring the battle play to life by pressing the button on the Z-Ring to experience the different colours, lights and vibration with each Z-Crystal! The Z-Ring Set comes with three Z-Crystals and a 2” Pikachu figure. Suitable for ages 4+. RRP 26.99.
Christmas day would not be complete without fun and games around the dining table. Families are in for a sweet surprise from Greedy Granny who loves her biscuits! So much so that she’s fallen asleep with a whole tray of them on her lap. Your mission is to take a biscuit of each type from Granny’s tray as carefully and quietly as you can. One wrong move will wake her and send her teeth flying! Will you risk it for a biscuit? Or will your move wake Granny? Suitable for ages 5+. RRP £19.99.
Families will also love playing with Pop Up Darth, which has 4 sound effects including iconic songs from the movies and Darth Vader’s signature breathing sound. To play, place Darth Vader into the barrel and push down and twist. Each player takes their turn to slide in the Light Saber style swords! If your Light Saber makes Darth Vader pop up out of his barrel, you’re out! Suitable for ages 4yrs+. RRP £17.99
