Now who doesn’t love a challenge?? Especially when it involves toys and little children!! So when Wicked Uncle got in touch with me to ask if we would like to take part in their Wicked Uncle Challenge and proof their claim of “Wicked Uncle helps people become A* present buyers!” is true I was more than happy to oblige and see what the fuss is all about! Wicked Uncle asked that the Candidate taking on the Challenge is a Wicked Grown Up who has no children and has no clue what to buy those little creatures! So who better to ask then our current German house guest who with her 16 years might know all about buying cool clothes but has certainly not been near a toy shop for quite some time:
She accept the challenge with no hesitation and off she went onto the Wicked Uncle Website to search her way through some cool toys for those 2:
Here is what she thought about searching her way through the website to choose some cool
presents for Finn & Molly-May:
“The website was easy to navigate around and it was really helpful having the different categories like adventurer and brainiac etc. to make the present finding more specific. This is the first time ever i bought a present online for kids and because i don’t really see them much and only knew their ages and some of their likes it was great that i could choose age defined gifts.
Overall it took me around 20 minutes to choose and put the order through but only because there are so many awesome presents to choose from, some of them i just wanted to order for myself!”
Less than 3 days later our order has arrived and we had 2 exiting little ones jumping up and down with joy who couldn’t wait to open the box and see what Melissa has chosen for them:
The Foam Cone Factory from TOMY was an instant hit with both the kids and they couldn’t wait till it was bath time to try out their new pretend ice cream machine. You only need to drip in a few drops of bubble bath into the cornet at the top…add water…and pull the lever. This clever bath toy uses suction pads to attach to the bathroom tiles or the sides of your bath. The three flat-bottomed cones are designed to sit on the side of the bath, ready to add pretend sprinkles from the shaker that comes as part of the set.
Molly-May squeaked for delight when she spotted the pretty pink Dolphin Soapbox named ‘Ava’ and didn’t stop cuddling it all day! When i told her she could take Ava for a splash in the bathtub that night and it will even help her to wash herself she did her exiting dance with a big grin on her face! Ava is made using a soft terry cloth exterior and an anti-microbial sponge interior, she is easily worked into a lather – you just feed her some soap into her mouth.
Finn was pretty happy with his Dinosaur Kit from Wood Workz! And whats not to like, it’s a fun creative set which contains 23 quality wooden pieces from renewable sources with glue, paint and stickers to make a T-Rex, the king of dinosaurs. This is something he is very much looking forward to creating with Daddy and he already told me once it’s finished he would like to take it to show and tell Fridays in his school.
Here is a little video for our #WickedUncleChallenge:
All 3 presents been an instant hit with the kids and with myself too! Melissa has chosen some fantastically cool gifts all thanks to Wicked Uncle who have such a big and decent collection of just the right toy for everybody!
