Nowdays it seems the small stockings we used years ago have been upgraded to Santa sacks.

These have their advantages, they make it much easier to get goodies to fit in properly rather than trying to cram them into a stocking shaped bag that they have no chance of fitting into.  The minus side is they tend to be bigger but then adding a bit of shredded paper so they have to search through can make this more fun and take up some space too.

There are so many fun stocking filler options for kids.  It’s great to see their little faces light up as they open each of the surprises stuffed inside.  Mine love to sit together, tear open the packaging move on quickly to the next items whilst discretely looking to see what their siblings have opened.

My gift guide here includes a great range of goodies for children that they are bound to love.


We reviewed our second type of Fingerling recently.  There are loads of these cute little critters to chose from including raptors, pandas, unicorns, dragons and more (£11.25-£14.99) .  My son loved the two types we reviewed as he is crazy about dinosaurs.  They are cute little toys that grip onto your finger, move and make sounds.  If you love the sound of these why not pop over to my Fingerlings Untamed T-Rex post for your chance to WIN one!

X-SHOT Bug Attack Predator


We reviewed another from the Zuru range The X-SHOT Flying Bugs Buster over the summer and loved it.  The Bug Attack Predator is much smaller and suitable for indoor play.  It comes with darts and a bug that sticks to windows which moves down the glass as you fire at it.  These are easy to get hold of having discovered this one for £5.97 in the toy aisle at Asda.  Isn’t it a perfect stocking filler I know my girls and boy would enjoy this.


When asked what my children wanted for Christmas one of the items that was mentioned was slime in various forms.  My children like many others I know are totally obsessed with the gooey, gloppy, stuff.  We discovered Zimpli Kids Slime Play and Slime Baff last year and the kids were totally hooked.

Since then we have discovered that they have numerous other products available including Crackle Baff, SnoBall Play, Gelli Play and Unicorn Slime Play to name but a few.

Newer items include this fabulous product for dinosaur lovers:

And not forgetting this one for unicorn and fairy fans:

They look like so much fun don’t they?????

Sweet Pups

For children that love cuddly toys these are a lovely idea.  They’re super cute. There’s a good range to collect, they look and smell like pastries!!!  The Sweet Pups can be turned one way to look like a pasty and another to look like an adorable little pup.

Cry Babies Magic Tears

These super cute collectable dolls make a lovely stocking filler and is suitable for boys and girls.  All my children loved these especially my son who discovered that they doubled up as water squirters.

    1. Aaahhh these are some of the top toys of the year. I suggest you hurry and get some soon as they will probably sell out and last minute shoppers will miss out xxx

  1. great ideas for stocking fillers and mini gifts. Im happy as ive bought my nephews a slime kit and a dinosaur fingerling each so i know they will be happy 🙂

    I hadnt known about the play kits such as the fantasy playset so im definately going to check out that as my daughter would love it x

  2. 3 boys playing with this, how much trouble could they get into LOL. Thanks for the chance I have got my fingers and toes crossed

  3. Fantastic prizes , my nephew would love for me to win this for him , I’d definitely be his favourite auntie then lol xx

  4. I love the sweet pups. I’m not keen on the Geli worlds. We tried those recently but I just don’t like the texture! The kids on the other hand – they love it!

  5. My daughter loves the Gelli products, to be honest we all have fun in the bath playing with the Gelli bath stuff, a good way to kill an hour on a rainy afternoon

  6. The thing that jumped out at me was ‘crackle bath’ – It looks awesome! lol! My daughter loves slime of any kind, it’s funny how these sensory toys are so popular at the moment, including the squishies. (Which I quite love too!)

  7. My nieces and nephews loved some of the gifts I got them during the year off that list. Slime might be my gift theme for them all this year 😁
