Hello!

My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

The 5 hottest budget-friendly Christmas toys of 2017



Dear Santa ...

Christmas is for kids and each child deserves to feel the magic of the season. What a better way to do that than giving them something really nice, such as a toy? With so many toys available on the market, it can be overwhelming to shop especially if you have several dozen on your list. Looking for a toy that will not break the bank? Here are the hottest items we found, that the kids, and even the kids at heart, will love:

1. Luvabella Doll, RRP £99.99


These life-like dolls are selling like hotcakes and it's easy to understand why. Just like a real and breathing baby, the Luvabella doll expresses herself by crying, smiling, and laughing. She giggles when tickled, reacts when spoon-fed and takes a nap when you lull her to sleep. What's unique about this doll is that Luvabella is capable of learning over 100 words and phrases. There is also a boy version, the Luvabeau.

2. Fisher Price ‘Teach n Tag Movi’, RRP £49.99


This new offering from Fisher-Price is your best bet when you are on a hunt for educational toys for toddlers. Give your little one an awesome robot buddy that can help him learn important skills such as following directions. Aside from taking direction, the Teach n Tag Movi also teaches toddlers critical thinking and movement. This interactive toy lets children show their dance moves and practice their listening skills. 

3. Thomas & Friends: Thomas Minis Super Station playset, RRP £96.99



Does your child love Thomas & Friends? Keep him entertained for hours with this biggest Thomas & Friends playset ever. This fantastic toy also keeps the imagination going as it can be built into different setups. It comes with four toy trains and features the main areas of Sodor. Ideal for kids ages three and up, the Super Station playset is equipped with 10 meters of train track that can hold as many as 100 engines. 

4. Lego Boost, RRP £149.99


Lego has been around for decades yet it will never be out of trend. But if you're looking for something a little different from the usual and want to level things up, there's the Lego Boost. It combines the good old favourite brick we all know and love, and technology, as it needs programmable coding for you to build the robots. Let your kids' imagination fly and improve their creativity as they build the robot designs using the app. 

5. Airhogs DR1 Official Race Drone, RRP £99.99


This year is the year of drone. Business and consumers alike are flying drones and it's not hard to understand why. They are used for different purposes but on a consumer level, drones give a racing experience that is nothing but entertaining. This drone is lightweight and easy to use, making it an ideal gift for young ones. It also allows for outdoor play. 

As you might have noticed, the hottest toys these days are not just entertaining. They are also educational! For more suggestions on the best toys that you can give your loved ones this Christmas, view here

  6. The doll looks like it would be amazing but it is creepy looking to me. I think it's the eyes. The air hog is the ideal gift for my 12 yr old son.
