My children now at that really awkward in-between stage where I’m really struggling to know what to get them. They don’t play with toys as much as they used to and they already have a lot anyway, yet they’re not quite at the stage of clothes or days out as they want things to open on Christmas Day. With this in mind I’ve put together a few Christmas gift ideas for tweens that I’ve found for both boys and girls. I’ve separated them into ‘girls’ and ‘boys’ however that’s not to say that any of these have to be gender specific, it’s more for ease of writing!
Christmas Gifts for Girls
This is a lovely group of gifts for the more creative children. The Project Mc2 Perfume Science kit is perfect for your budding scientist and gives them the opportunity to perfect their experimenting and crate their own perfume scent using test tubes, beakers and all things scientific! Find this at Amazon for £34.99.
The Glam Goo Deluxe Pack from MGA Entertainment was the Dream Toy’s top gifts for Christmas two years ago and is a set my children have really enjoyed. In this set you not actually get to make slime but wear it as well by filling your own accessories. This is currently priced at £10.99 on Amazon.
LOL dolls have been around for a while now and are definitely here to stay. The newest addition is the surprise movie magic dolls, which include props, scenes and 3D glasses. You can also feed or bathe your doll for an additional surprise. Sure to be a big hit, they are £10.99 on Amazon.
The second girls bundle features things for the child who likes a bit of pampering. With the Gel-A-Peel Fashion Maker kit you can design, wear and share your own jewellery, now with added glitz and sparkle. This is £17.99.
My two always loved their Little Live toys and the Pet Piggly looks so cute! Set to be a top toy for Christmas, this moves and sounds like a real pig, she will walk on her lead or dance to her own music. This is currently selling for £28.68.
Another top toy for this year is Magic Mixies Cauldron, which comes with cauldron, wand, spell book as well as Mixie, an interactive plush toy. Watch as the cauldron really mists as you cast your spell and bring Mixie to life. Currently on sale for £70 this is set to be a show stopper.
Christmas Gifts For Boys
The Nerf Alphapoint 2-pack is a fantastic two pack set of laser guns, making them better for those children that tend to get a bit over zealous. In the set you get two guns which can be customised via your smartphone. They are £42.99 on Amazon.
The game Gassy Gus is featured in the Dream Toy top games this year. In this card game you take turns to feed Gus and the first player to use all their cards wins. A great family game and a sure hit, priced at £19.20 on Amazon.
The Hot Wheels Massive Loop Mayhem is a new addition to the Hot Wheels world and looks like a great one to add to your collection. It includes a huge 28 inch loop and slam launcher so you can use multiple cars at once. This currently retails for £68.99 on Amazon but is in high demand.
Ready2Robot is a great collectible toy from MGA. With these you can build, swap and battle your bots and there is even slime involved which is sure to be a big hit! These come in Battle Packs for £14.99 or singles for £7.99.
For Lego Star Wars fans the Bobba Fett set is the next must have, featuring 539 pieces and two figures when when completed creates the Starship from the Mandolorian. This is selling at £37.99 currently.
