I heard yesterday that the Christmas lights are already up on Oxford Street – granted, they’ve not been switched on yet, but they’re there, and 84 days before Christmas. And if that isn’t enough to start getting you twitchy about your Christmas list, yesterday, Hamley’s announced its top then Christmas toys for 2017!
But if you have ‘little ones’ to buy for, I guess now’s the time to start thinking about it, especially if your little darlings will be asking Santa for anything off Hamley’s list.
- FurReal Buzz Pet – Tyler the Playful Tiger – £135
- Fisherprice Dance & Move Beatbo £33
- LEGO BB-8 – £85
- The Barbie DreamHorse – £90
- Nerf Nitro Longshot – £22
- Power Rangers – £60
- Luvabella Toy – £100
- Hatchimals – Egg Surprise – £75
- PJM Headquarters Playset – £50
- Get a Grip – £21
This list of toys might even get your kids to put their iPhones down for half an hour. But, sadly, it won’t help get them outside. Here’s an alternative list of alternative gift ideas that will help you get the kids outside in the fresh air and burn off some of the contents of their selection boxes:
- Alternative Gift Ideas – Outdoor Toys For Christmas 2017
- SFR Vision II Roller Skates – White or Blue – £34.95
- Ridge Wave Complete Skateboard – £24.95
- Sonic Scamp Kids’ Kids Bike – £40.99
- Zycom Zing Complete Scooter w/Light Up Wheels – £39.95
- Kanga 6ft Premium Trampoline with Safety Enclosure, Net, Ladder, Shoe Bag & Winter Cover – £74.95
- Lil Monkey Climbing Dome – £108.99
- Starplast 109cm High Playhouse – £49.99
- Little Tikes Classic Cozy Coupe Ride-on – £40.00
- Hudora 72147 Nest swing – £35.99
- Hedstrom SeeSaw – £34.99
While all of the items on this list will get your kids outside and give them hours and hours of healthy fun, you might want to consider releasing the big kid from within and slip on a pair of roller skates or jump on a scooter yourself.
Scooters today aren’t the geeky things they were back in the 70s, today they’re lightweight and stylish and used by all age groups. Plus, they’re great fun! Online scooter stores such as skatehut.co.uk offer a wide range of scooters from starters to pros at competitive prices. They stock a full range of accessories, too.
