It can get a bit difficult to find toys that are exciting and new and choosing a gift for other people’s children can be quite daunting! Fear not, as Wicked Uncle is brilliant for exactly this. It is a gift website that stocks interesting and unusual children’s presents. They are essentially a present service for birthdays, Christmas and other occasions.
Wicked Uncle is more than just a toy shop, it can also help you choose what to buy. Simply fill in the age and gender of the child and it will select for you a range of toys that should suit that child. They have personally tested every product before they stock it; they build the kits, play the games, bake the rainbow cakes, blow the giant bubbles, and test drive the remote-control spiders! They stock a lot of items you just won’t find elsewhere.
The website allows you to easily find gifts for girls who are science mad or boys who like crafty things, and it allows you to search by areas of interest like creative, outdoorsy things etc. There is also an option to just search all so you can see all the cool items they stock.
As it was Ms C’s birthday, I browsed for aged 10 and for girls. It showed me a range of fun and unusual gift ideas for her that I would not have thought of. I am very happy with the choices as I know she will be happy with that. It has loads of games, toys, play kits and puzzles that all offer something a bit different. This is a fantastic selection of gifts that will stretch the child’s imagination. There is a mix of quality brands like Interplay, Brainstorm Toys, Hape, etc. and the prices are reasonable.
As we were following a budget to buy something for Ms C, I picked these 6 Pink Flaming socks in the Oddsocks and a retro arcade machine for her. The buying process was simple and straightforward. Simply add them into the basket and check out. You have two options to pay, either by cards or PayPal. I used the latter one to pay the balance.
You can choose from their great selection of colourful gift wrap, and even select a card design to be handwritten by the Wicked Uncle Elves for that personal touch. The gifts can be addressed directly to the child. Even more cleverly, if you add the occasion to your reminders, they can send you a birthday reminder every year with a selection of age-appropriate gifts to choose from, so you will never miss a birthday again.
Once it is ordered, it will let you know when they have sent the gift along with the Royal Mail tracking number. The postage is very reasonable. The gift arrived two days later and it was very well packaged.
Ms C was delighted with both of the gifts! She loves the quality of the socks. They are fun and colourful. Mr K saw the arcade game and was very jealous over it. Me too! This is such a cool toy! There are 200 built-in games with sound effects and music. The package included a Thank You card for the child to fill in and send. I think this is a lovely idea for the child to write a Thank You card to the sender. I love that Wicked Uncle have gone above and beyond to deliver an amazing experience for the sender and the child! Overall I am very pleased and impressed with them. It offers lots of amazing items and I would recommend them.
