Looking for some inspiration on what to buy the kids this festive season? We’ve done the research for you and come up with a list of 10 must-have toys this year so all you have to do is click, buy and wrap! Happy shopping!
1. Lego Duplo Farm Adventures
This super cute farm set with Lego Duplo figures is perfect for hours of imaginative play. Little ones can pretend to feed all the animals, head into the farmhouse and pull a string to make the bell go up and down.
2. Melissa & Doug Friendship Wooden Stamp Set
Scribbling is fun but stamping is even better! This adorable wooden stamp set will let little artists create pretty pictures.
3. Sea Life Darts
While a real dartboard might not be the best idea, this magnetic version will keep little ones entertained and happy for ages. We love the sea creatures design.
4. WowWee Fingerlings Hugs Bella
These soft monkeys are responsive to children’s actions – throw them up in the air, tickle them or swing them and you’ll hear them react with a laugh, a kiss and more! Kids can also hold monkey’s left ear and record themselves talking, only to hear their pet repeat what they’ve said in a funny way.
5. Elasti Plasti Greenetic Clay and Dough
The slime craze is still going strong – but this product is even better (and not at all messy) so listen up! Expandable by 100 times, the kids will be able to create giant bubbles with it and it’s non-sticky – hooray!
6. Janod Wooden Magnetic World Map Puzzle
Not only will this map look lovely on a bedroom wall, it’s also a fun way for kids to learn about geography. With 92 magnetic pieces to represent a country or a region, it’s the perfect gift for our multicultural Dubai kids.
7. LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express
Got a Harry Potter/LEGO fan at home? This fabulous gift will allow them to build a Hogwarts Express Train and more. Magic.
8. GraviTrax Starter Set
This brilliant STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) toy allows budding engineers to build tracks and set gravity spheres rolling – a little like a modern marble run. There’s also a free GraviTrax app that allows you to design action-packed tracks with the building editor and race using different balls and camera perspectives.
9. Scientific Explorer Disgusting Science Kit
Like it or not, kids are obsessed with anything “gross”! Give them the chance to experiment with creating everything from friendly mould to fake blood with this disgusting science kit.
10. HoverTech Target FX
