How are you going with your Christmas shopping this year? If you still have kids to buy for then this is for you!
Tumble Tower – Giant Tumbling Blocks Game
There is something so appealing about either giant versions or smaller versions of familiar things. This Tumble Tower – Giant Tumbling Blocks Game would provide many hours of fun for kids and adults.
It consists of 56 beautifully-crafted pine blocks, building a 19 level tower of 60cm at the start of the game and comes with its own storage bag.
Premium Giant Pick Up Sticks
I loved pick up sticks as a kid and would have adored this giant version! These Premium Giant Pick Up Sticks are 16mm thick, durable and can be wiped clean. They also come in their own storage bag.
Dantoy BIOplastic Dinner Set
We actually still have a few pieces of the tea set we bought for our eldest (who is now 21!) when he was very little and it still gets used when my nephews and nieces come to our house. This Dantoy BIOplastic Dinner Set would make a great gift for the 2 – 5 year old group.
This set is made purely from 100% Renewable Raw Material, Sugarcane, making it a great eco-friendly alternative to the plastic version we had.
Grimm’s Earth Tiles 32 piece set
The Grimm’s Earth Tiles 32 piece set is a great alternative to the plastic magnetic tiles on offer. They are hand crafted from durable birch, so will last for years and have a non-toxic finish.
Thinkfun Rush Hour – Traffic Jam Logic Board Game
We have had Thinkfun Rush Hour – Traffic Jam Logic Board Game in our house for close to 15 years now and it still gets played. It is great because it gets the kids thinking and it is a game they can play on their own. It comes with a drawstring bag, making it easy to store and a great game for car trips too.
Catan Junior Board Game
Catan is a super popular board game and the Catan Junior Board Game is a great intro for kids 5+. Players assume the roles of settlers, each attempting to build and develop holdings while trading and acquiring resources.
Australian Barefoot thorny devil
Made by Barefoot Artisans who are dedicated weavers and needlewomen who, without time constraints of mass production, are able to produce premium quality workmanship. This Australian Barefoot thorny devil is made in Sri Lanka and each Artisan earns a real wage enabling them to support their families with self-respect and dignity.
Australian Barefoot frilled-neck lizard
This Australian Barefoot frilled-neck lizard is also wade by Barefoot Artisans. These soft toys would make a great gift for young kids, especially those who are currently not living in Australia – something to remind them of home!
String Art Kit
Did you make these as a kid? I did and spent plenty of hours on them. This String Art Kit comes with a white board 30cm x 30cm, template, nails, yarn and step-by-step instructions. A fun activity for the kids and one that will help with fine motor skills.
Unicorn DIY Beeswax Candle Kit
The colour in this Unicorn DIY Beeswax Candle Kit are so pretty! The kit includes wick and 12 pieces of beeswax each 20 x 14cm: White (4), Purple (4), Pink (4), with enough wick to make about 12 candles.
Kookaburra Kookaburra Card Game
The Kookaburra Kookaburra Card Game is based off the book of the same name. It consists of 4 x 12 birds commonly found in Australia, beautifully illustrated with linoprinted images.
The game is played much like ‘Happy Families’ or ‘Go Fish’ (rules of play included) or for younger players a version of Snap works well or they can be used in memory games.
Wooden memory cards
These Wooden memory cards are perfect for younger kids who are just learning the concept of matching. The cards are 65mm diameter and made from 3mm natural plywood. They come in a calico (cotton) bag for storage.
National Geographic Kids magazine subscription
Our youngest received a National Geographic Kids magazine subscription one year and he loved it. We still have some of the beautiful animal photos framed! A magazine subscription makes for a great gift as it continues through out the year and helps to keep them reading.
LEGO® Architecture New York City
If you have a budding LEGO master in your house, then LEGO® Architecture New York City is a great gift. The whole Architecture series is fantastic and would make a perfect Christmas gift for older LEGO fans 10+.
For the gamer child in your life, a gaming headset can make a great gift. These can range from the super to cheap to the super expensive, but the headset in the photo is moderately priced at $39 from JB HiFi.
