This week the Toy Association has revealed the top 12 toys of Christmas 2019 so, it got me inspired to write a few kids Christmas gift guides myself. The Toy Association consists of the UK’s biggest and best chain and independent toy retailers, who are invited to a London venue to appraise the new toys for Christmas 2019.
My first Christmas gift guide is aimed at kids who like girly toys. I have included some from the Toy Association’s list, some I’ve bought previously and some that are definitely on my kids lust list for this Christmas.
All these toys are non gender specific and are perfect for all kids who appreciate a lot of pink, sparkle and glitter.
The Blume doll is on the Toy Association’s official top 12 toys of Christmas 2019. There are 22 dolls to collect priced around £8 each. You add Water and See Who Grows, each Blume doll features over-the-top fashion hairstyles and outfits that you can mix and match. In the secret garden discover 10+ surprises including a mini friend, sticker sheet and fashion accessories. Also discover beauty accessories, fashionable outfits, sticker sheets and so much more in your secret garden. Psst: surprises may be hidden!
Also on the Toy Association’s official top 12 toys of Christmas 2019 for Kid’s who love girly toys The Brabie Dreamplane taking off the world of imaginary play. Additional pieces provide details to help stories soar; there’s a magazine, 2 blankets, a travel bag, an eye mask and headphones.
The epic adventure continues in Disney Frozen 2, the exciting sequel to the hit film, Frozen! With this latest Elsa doll which sings “Into the Unknown” and says 14 film-inspired phrases. Her dress lights up in a gorgeous pattern inspired by the films dramatic moments.
The final toy I’ve listed from the Toy Association’s list is the Owleez. Children can teach Owleez to fly, the first ever interactive toy pet that can really fly.
My 3 year old daughter Coco-Ivy is super curious about the LOL brand so to avoid disappointment this year I hope Santa delivers a LOL surprise for her. With so many LOL products to choose from I’ve whittled it down to three of my favourites that are some of the cheaper options. This LOL Surprise secret diary for girls is a must have for the new season, with its sequin cover with two colours sequins. It also comes with a pen and a surprise gift.
The next gift is the Lil Kitty queen with purse and makeup surprise, unbox a fashionable purse, Lil Kitty Queen doll, and makeup surprises! The makeup includes a colour-change lip gloss necklace, unique details like a “cracked” mobile phone and heart-shaped pacifier. Wear & Share accessories including fab glasses, a dummy necklace, and a kitty purse. It also includes a bottle with disappearing glitter.
And the most recognisable Glitter Globe which until writing this post I honestly didn’t have a clue what it consists of. So, there are 8 globes in the series to choose from, the one I’ve featured is Amazons best seller. Each Character has 8 Surprises! (1) Secret Message, (2) Pacifier, (3) Bottle, (4) Accessory, (5) Outfit, (6) Shoes, (7) Glitter Globe doll, (8) Glitter Hair. Sparkling glitter floats inside their hair like a snow globe and you can feed the dolls water to reveal their beautiful hair. And, finally add water to the ball and it becomes a colourful, sparkly snow globe and display case.
When my oldest daughter Kia who is now 16 years old was little she had an army of different dolls. Baby born mini dolls went everywhere with her in the bath, in her bag when we went out and even sat with her at the dinner table. Today the surprise dolls seem to be the latest release of mini dolls. And with a perfect mini home, featuring an exclusive 11cm BABY born Surprise doll with colour changing hair! The little doll can drink real water and wets her nappy. It also includes a baby bed, play mat and several accessories. There are lot’s of different toys in the secret series including the wrapped surprise egg and the rocking horse set. Ahhh these dolls really do take me back. Suitable for children aged 3+.
We bought this Leapfrog Ice-Cream cart for Coco-Ivy’s 2nd birthday and she still enjoys it now. Watch your kids scoop and laugh while they learn about colours, numbers, memory and matching. This ice cream trolley is ideal for children to get started with role play and let their creativity go wild. It can be played independently or with family and friends. There are six hungry characters that will give directions to encourage discovery of colours, counting, flavours and numbers, as well as 2 games to enhance creativity and stacking skills. This boys & girls ice cream toy is an ideal gift for Christmas as it helps develop skills that are valuable once kids start school. If Leapfrog isn’t for you I also spotted these lovely wooden ice-cream sets, the wooden cart is by Jerryvon and includes 1 trolley with ceiling, 9 different types of ice cream and 1 scoop. And last but not least is this gorgeous Melissa & Doug Wooden Scoop & Serve Ice Cream Counter which includes a wooden ice cream counter, eight ice cream scoops, six toppings, two cones, cup, scooper, tongs, wooden spoon, and six pretend banknotes.
Another of Coco-Ivy’s faves is the mamas and papas double buggy. She definitely has fun loading this buggy with as many of her dolls and cuddly toys as she can fit for their next trip to the park. Coco-Ivy’s hard bodied baby born dolls fit perfectly in this double buggy and she is expecting Santa will bring her some of the Baby Born accessories.
So that’s my Christmas Gift Guide for all kids who like girly toys. All the gifts have links that will direct you straight to the Amazon site by clicking on the images or descriptions.
Have fun shopping this Christmas and if you have any gift ideas to share I would love to hear from you or just let me know what you think.
Lot’s of love,
