December 15, 2011

So the kids have sent their wish lists off to Santa, and now you’re hoping and praying that you get them the right gift. Relax! Kids will love all our gift suggestions – guaranteed to keep them happy till next Christmas!

uDraw GameTablet

Available on the Xbox and PS3, the uDraw GameTablet is the ultimate Christmas gift for kids and adults alike. It is a first-of-its-kind device that provides a new and entertaining way to use your gaming console. Incorporating amazing art studio features, it allows you to draw and play Pictionary on the television – a fun and hilarious way to spend time with the family at Christmas time.

The uDraw HD GameTablet including uDraw Studio Instant Artist: $119.95

Rally Wooden Balance Bike

The Rally Balance Bike not only looks cool, but is a lightweight, ergonomically designed and extremely strong wooden bike suitable for 2-5 year olds. It has been specifically designed without pedals or training wheels to better aid the development of your child’s gross motor skills.

The Rally bike requires your child to use their feet for propulsion. As the feet are always in contact with the ground, the skills of balance, steering, coordination and control are soon learnt and enable an easy transition to a pedal powered bicycle without the use of training wheels. Even better, Moo Said The Cow has plenty of gifts on sale!

$132.00 (20% off for Christmas)

Magazine subscription

Children love receiving things in the mail! A magazine subscription will keep them busy all year long. Our favourites? K-Zone and Mad Magazine (yes! It’s still around and as funny as ever!)

Around $50.00

Stationary set

Which girl wouldn’t love a stationary set? Love this adorable notebook and mushroom stamp set from Kikki-K, and include a handful of colourful Paper Mate InkJoy pens tied with ribbon in her favourite colour.

$19.95 for the stationary set, $4.48 for 10 pack of InkJoy pens.

Australian Monopoly

When a friend’s son recently asked for a board game for his birthday, I almost fell off my chair! While we love our electronics, let’s not forget how much fun board games are for the family. We love this Australian edition of Monopoly as will any future bankers in your household!



OK, we almost had you there. We agree with the RSPCA – a puppy is for life, not just for Christmas! Don’t be tempted by shopping centre pet shops while you do your Christmas shopping. If you’re serious about getting a pet for a present, think it through and rescue a pet from a shelter, where thousands of dogs, cats and other animals await an unhappy end.

What are you getting the kids for Christmas?
