[AD] Christmas Gift Guide - Kids

 It's that time of year again when everyone is on the look out for Christmas gifts for their little ones. I thought I would share with you some bits I have picked up for my two little ones; hopefully they will provide you with some inspiration.
Both of the girls have been obsessed with painting recently and have loved painting pre-made models. I grabbed this dinosaur set from The Works (also grabbed a unicorn one too!) - my youngest loves dinosaurs so I am sure she will be thrilled with this! I also picked up this pairing activity set called 'Where's my Bottom?'; both of the girls love these games so I am sure that it will be put to good use. The Works have a 2 for £10 deal on loads of their items online which I loved! 
Florrie has only recently started to enjoy and settle down for a bedtime story, which I am surprised at as sleep was never something she liked to do! This personalised Goes to Sleep* book is beautiful - the character will look like your child and their name appears throughout. I actually decided to try this with Florrie before Christmas and she always wants it to be read before bed! 
As I mentioned earlier, both the girls love to paint. Aoife is relatively tidy with it, but Florrie definitely isn't. I've seen Little Brian paint sticks before and have used them, so thought the Art Station* was a great idea! There are two sides; a whiteboard where your little ones can paint, and a blackboard for chalk art. I'm hoping that the girls can both get some use out of it at the same time to avoid arguments. You can pick up Little Brian products from most toy retailers. 
I wanted something that would keep the kids entertained on long drives, rather than a tablet I figured that this Ultimate Light Board from Crayola would work well, especially as I wouldn't have to worry about felt pens! I've heard pretty good things about these so I am sure they will live up to the hype!
Florrie absolutely loves playing with figurines at the moment; her favourites are Happyland and Toot-Toot Friends. I managed to pick up Princess Addie for her and have been eyeing a couple more up too! I don't mind spending with these as I know they will get well used.
I have never heard of Fuzzikins*, but I know my eldest will love it! Your little ones can collect all of the sets to create their own Fuzzi Street. The characters can be decorated with the pens provided, rinsed and re decorated. I love that aspect of it as they can get creative as often as they want!
Games are not something I have really looked into before for the girls, but I have a feeling they will both love this. It reminds me of the old Buckaroo I used to have as a child. Each player takes turns hanging fruit and other animals on the Orangutan before he "Twangs" - I can hear the kids laughing at this one already and I am sure that Orangutwang* will be a hit!
This one may look strange on a kid's gift guide, but my eldest is loving coloured pens at the moment! As she is learning to write I figured proper coloured pens, rather than felt tips, would help a bit more. These Bic Gelocity* pens will be popped into her stocking ready for all her homework in the new year!

I hope that this guide has helped some of you and that all the Christmas shopping is almost at an end for you!
