LEGO 60190 City Arctic Expedition Vehicle


Type: Lego Brick Set

Age level: 5-12years

What is great about this toy: For less than £5, this is a toy of great value relative to the price.
An ideal birthday present for the youngster who is wishing for his first LEGO set.

What is not so great about this toy: Remember to keep track of the pieces during assembly.

This package of LEGO is ideal for the older boy, probably aged 5-7, who is struck by the LEGO “brickmania” but is not yet ample to collect a huge £60 Fire Station.

 

Priced just below £5 for this toy, the youngster will get the taste for what it really takes to gather all the pieces, without hitting the (brick) wall of fatigue.

 

The major issue with brick toys, in particular, is the issue with missing parts. Kids will undoubtedly feel the world crumble upon their feet when the brick masterpiece is missing that ONE piece which no one seems to be able to find. A generic issue yet to be solved.

 

However, by acquiring a minor set like the Arctic Expedition, the youngster will get a great chance for completing their first (or second) LEGO set on their own + plus the adults won’t have to spend a fortune on a 100-parts brick set which may be dispersed into atoms before the x-mas tree is let.

Shuffle Fun 4 in 1 Toy Story 4 Card Game

 

Type: Family Card Game

Age level: +4 years

What is great about this toy: The game truly captures the entire family in a joined post-dinner event. Ideal for holidays and other excursions.

What is not so great about this toy: The duration of the game is only 10 minutes.

 

When Toy Story found its way to the cinemas back in the mid-nineties, no one could have imagined the franchise would as popular as it has proven to be. More than 24 years after, movie #4 has just been released and once again we follow the bold adventures of Woody the cowboy and his best friend, Buzz Lightyear.

 

The card game, Shuffle Fun 4 in 1, is one of the many bi-products from this movie. The game itself is pretty much a derivative of the card game UNO where each player takes a turn to drop cards on the deck.

 

The cards all have a color and a numeric value, and if the next player is able to top former value or change color, he/she can continue dropping cards.

If not, then the player must pass, and subsequently take a penalty – which is take more cards frm the deck. The one who get rid of his/hers cards the fastest win. A fun game, with limited dependency on the parents.

RYAN’S WORLD Putty Play Pal-Series 1

Type: Silicone Putty

Age level: +3 years

What is great about this toy: The Putty comes in a bit shinier colors than others. The description of how to form characters is included.

What is not so great about this toy: Once the colors are mixed, they are tricky to separate.

 

The founder and developer of the online media “Ryans Toys Review”, 8-year-old Ryan Kaji, has obtained his own product line, Ryan’s World.

The majority of the toys from Ryans is priced at a rather high price compared to the competition. Finding a toy under £5 took some searching, but we made it. The toy in itself is cool enough and it is definitely an upgrade compared to the other Putty manufacturers out there. The age says above 4  years. The cap for playing with this is most likely around 6 years

Disney Frozen 2 Mini Memory Game

Type: Memory Game

Age level: +3 years

What is great about this toy: Finally the second edition of Frozen is here. Time to play with Elsa, Anna, and Olav!

What is not so great about this toy: Nothing. Its a memory card game – what’s not to like?

 

We have waited for more than 6 years for the follow-up to Elsa and Annas’ adventure in Frozen part 1.

November 22nd, 2019, is the official launch date of the frozen movie, part II. tthe plot is yet unknown as Disney has kept their doors closed tighter than ever. Judging n the number of toys, gadgets, mugs, keychains and other items related to the Frozen series, we are in for a big treat.

 

The game in itself is no major adventure, as we are dealing with a plain memory game from Ravensburger. However, for the youngster who is at the same time an avid fan, the game is an ideal gift, to a very affordable rate.

ZIMPLI KIDS LIMITED Slime Bath Powder – 150g


Type: Slime for the bath

Age level: +3 years

What is great about this toy: Slime in Bath – its the dream of most kids.

What is not so great about this toy: Its everything the parents dislike. Although the kids have fun in the perfectly safe gooey water, the shampoo needs to pay its part in a major scale afterward.

 

This is a fantastic treat when the kids need a perfect bundle in the bathtub. Given there is plenty of time left, then trying out a real “slime bath” will undoubtedly be a treat that the kids will remember. No doubt, that your kids will be spilling the extraordinary bath details in the kindergarten the following days.

 

If you have a larger bathtub, then the full bag of slime will have to be used – especially if the kids want to have the full gooey effect. A bag costs under £5 and there are often discount upon purchases of up 4 bags at a time.

Mermaid Dolls Princess Bath Time

Type: Mermaid dolls to be used in the bathtub or swimming pool.

Age level: +3 years

What is great about this toy: Comes with brush and mirror. Ideally for 3-4-year-old girls who enjoy paddling around in the tub or pool (during summertime).

What is not so great about this toy: Getting the kids to take a bath, can prove difficult when their new favorite toy is not accompanying them.

3 dolls for the price of a fiver, is to many a bargain. As with many cheap things, there is always the question of quality relative to the price. If you are looking for a sustainable gift for your daughter, that is meant to last for a longer period, then this may not be the best option.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a cheap alternative meant to last for a short period (like a holiday), then this might be the perfect dispersion for when the girls need a shower. Regardless of your preferences, less than 5 quid, for 3 dolls, is cheap.

Children’s Spider-Man Red Backpack

Type: Small backpack with spiderman on its back.

Age level: +3 years

What is great about this toy: A spiderman backpack for less 5 quid!

What is not so great about this toy: Can fit the children’s lunchbox, and not a whole lot more.

 

On one hand, this is not really a toy. Although it’s cool to show off, its very hard to play with your backpack – regardless of whether or not spider man is painted all over. The item makes the list, as this is a very cool gift idea for kids birthdays when they are around 4-5 years of age. It’s a cool thing, which does not make either mom or dad go bust.

 

There are plenty of cool items related to spiderman as the new movie from Marvel is set to premiere. Unfortunately, the movie gadget items are often expensive, relative to “normal” branded items – and rarely do they cost less than 5 pounds. Nevertheless, we have included a link below, directly to the gadget catalog from Spiderman listed on Amazon.

Groovy Tunes PACK OF 2 Microphones Red & Blue

Type: Microphones for the younger audience

Age level: +3 years

What is great about this toy: A cheap way of exploring the kids singing skills.

What is not so great about this toy: These toys are made of a kind of plastic which is, in our opinion, somewhat fragile. Expect that this toy can break if not handled with some kind of care.

This microphone is a great discovery. The kids have so much fun, acting out their inner pop star in front of parents and grandparents. The microphones are built in a way that a darker voice appears. The kids will automatically get the feeling that they are “live” in front of their selected audience.

As mentioned we believe the plastic can be somewhat fragile. That being said, this is a great piece of toy, that often helps to stimulate the more quieter kids to start singing.

Air Fire Engine Kids Toys Cars Set

Type: 5 very small fire engines

Age level: +3 years

What is great about this toy: It is a very cheap toy which can occupy the children for several hours.

What is not so great about this toy: The toys are small, so if the child has his/her mind set on a toy of much larger scale, disappointment is likely to occur.

 

If your child is a firefighter fan, then this set of fire engines is a fast way to cheer him/her up. the 5 pieces display all of the material the actual fire brigade has in store when it comes to fighting fires. As such, there is some actual learning embedded in playing with the toys.

 

This is a cool gift for a birthday present. The toys cost around £5 pound and are normally in stock with many of the retailers online.

Melissa & Doug Shimmering Hearts Wooden Bead Set

Type: Heart Bead set

Age level: +4 years

What is great about this toy: This toy is for the creative child, who will have great fun playing with the beads and accompanying laces.

What is not so great about this toy: For many children, the fine-coordination in their hands and fingers sets in at a stage. Although the toy is for +4 years, some kids may find this to difficult yet.

 

This is such a cool set, for the girl, or boy, who enjoy working with beads and laces. This set is a great starter set, and 45 beads are just enough to 3 necklesses or bracelets.

 

The price can be found just around £4 for this set of Beads, and it will be a perfect present for the birthday or Christmas.
