Countdown to Christmas

Pinch, punch first of the month!

Bonfire night is just a few days away, and Squirt is looking forward to seeing the fireworks! I can’t wait to be wrapped up in scarves and gloves, with a hot chocolate in one hand and a sparkler in the other! We’ll be watching them from afar as Squirt’s not overly fond of the noise, which I think can be the case with a lot of youngsters. If you’ve got some little ones who aren’t keen on their noise, try an indoor light display with some light up toys.

Meet the Gears! Gears! Gears! Wacky Wigglers, perfect for some lit-up fun indoors!

It will now start getting darker outside, crisper underfoot and a bit nippier in the air – it must be that time of year when we start thinking about the upcoming festivities, and if you’re looking for a good deal for the children this year, we think we have got an offer you’ll like!

Need Stocking Fillers? All our lower prices items which are great for a variety of ages can be found in the Christmas Shop. Our new bags of counters make great stocking fillers and can be used for so many activities. We’ve selected some of our best games for our Family Games category, ideal for families who love to get round the table and play a board game or two over the festive period. Robot Face Race™ is one of Squirt’s favourite family games. The idea of the game is to shake the RID (Robot Identification Device) to display unique facial colour combinations, and then 1…2…3…search! The first player to find the robot with all the matching facial attributes with the correct colour wins! No two robots are the same! This is certainly a family favourite of ours.
