There is 6 weeks to go until Christmas Day – this year has gone so quickly! U.Games Australia has a huge range of fantastic products for kids of all ages any child I know would love to find wrapped under the Christmas tree this year. We love their range because they are educational, fun and the kids get into them together. Below are a few of our favourites.
Board games are always a hit in our house and 5 Second Rule is one we have owned for a while now. It is designed for ages 8 and over (we all play it here the little ones help by handing the cards and turning the timer) Players have 5 seconds to answer a question like “Name three dog breeds” It sounds easy enough but with the timer running down it isn’t as simple as it sounds.
This game is a winner with everyone in our home from kids to adults. The timer sends players into a frenzy and the craziest answers come out ensuring lots of laughs. It retails for $27.99 and is available at Big W, ABC Stores, Kidstuff, Myer, Toys R Us and www.Toys2Go.com.au Definitely one to add to your games cupboard and a great gift idea for all ages, especially those hard to buy for family and friends.
My Miss 9 is a real girly girl and hair and pretty things are her weakness in life. She is also obsessed with makeup and at that age where I struggle with what to
buy her. I am very wary of keeping things age appropriate with my daughters, which makes the Lip Balm Factory by Wild Science an ideal gift for kids her age.
Designed for ages 8 and above the Lip Balm Factory allows your kids to create their own lip balms by melting expensive berry wax beads, cosmetic oils and other ingredients together to make custom balms. Not just any plain balms: make multi-coloured, flavored, shimmer effect lip balms in a Crystal Compact they can apply time and time again. A selected range of Wild! Science is available at Australian Geographic, Big W, Kidstuff, Myer and all good independent retailers.
The Lip Balm Factory retails for $28 – an ideal gift for the hard to buy for tweens in your life.
Tween boys have always been the hardest to buy gifts for. Despite having two sons myself I always struggle once they hit around 7 years of age. The Weird Slime Workshop is not only perfect for any young boy, the girls will love it too – I know my Miss 8 would be right into this kit.
Recommended for ages 8 and above get the kids mastering polymer reactions to make drippy and bouncy slimes and gels. Create Tadpole and Leech soup, Rat Guts Noodles, Jellyfish, Blood Clots and more. What kid doesn’t like making, creating and gooey slimy things? Get them out in the backyard while having fun and learning at the same time.
Available at Big W (www.bigw.com.au), ABC Stores , Kidstuff, Myer, Toys R Us and www.Toys2Go.com.au the Weird Slime Workshop retails for $28 – a great product at an affordable price.
Stickers, stickers and more stickers – kids love them and they guarantee quiet time peeling, sticking and putting them into books, on cards and creating collages.
My Studio Girl Folieez Tropicanna will be heaven to your crafty little ones – it’s as easy as peel, foil and reveal. With over 60 stickers to foil and 30 rub-on foil sheets included in this pack it will provide hours of creativity and fun.
Designed for ages 6 and over My Studio Girl Folieez Tropicanna is available at Kidstuff, Spotlight and all good toy retailers. The best part of it? The price – it retails for $14.95 and will make the perfect gift this Christmas.
If you are looking for a stocking stuffer that will give you some quiet time look no further than the My Studio Girl Foodie Pillow Donut.
