As my 6-year-old doesn’t follow my blog. (Ha!) I thought I would share with you the things I am going to give her this Christmas. I find with two girls, I have to be a little more imaginative, and seek out different things as she has lots of hand me downs, from her big sis.
The first gift, is actually something that she has been wanting for a some time, and its a doll from the Project Mc2 TV series. She absolutely loves the TV series which is (as are the dolls) aimed at getting girls interested in science and maths. As I type she is at her Magical Maths class, that she goes to each week after school. Miss A loves maths, so I am really encouraging this new passion.
There are 4 characters to collect McKeyla, Camryn, Adrienne and Bryden.
- Project Mc2 Dolls with Experiments (RRP £24.99)*
Each character comes complete with their very own experiment for you to make at home. Build McKeyla’s lava light or Camryn’s skateboard, make Adrienne’s volcano erupt or Bryden’s glow stick shine. All experiments use products you can find in your own home. What a great idea!
There is also an online site, which looks great fun they can use HERE.
Next up is the new LeapPad Platinum*
It’s good in my experience to have a tablet like this, as an aid to learning and this is the newest in LeapPad’s impressive collection of them.
LeapPad Platinum is a perfect educational and fun gift if you’re looking to tablet this Christmas.
LeapFrog Imagicard is a first of its kind digital and physical learning experience for kids that magically brings characters and learning to life with the snap of a picture from one of 30+ interactive collectible cards included. Full length LeapFrog digital learning games are enhanced by physical interactive cards – featuring top licensed characters. The best way to experience LeapFrog Imagicard games are on LeapFrog’s most advanced LeapPad tablet yet, the all-new LeapPad Platinum with its seven-inch high-resolution, multi-touch capacitive screen and fast processor. The LeapPad Platinum tablet is the most durable LeapPad tablet and offers kid-safe content to explore and grow.
I will be including a full review of this after Christmas and will link back to it in this post.
Every year, we make sure that the girls receive at least one book, and this year its the classic Peter Pan for Miss A.
This is a new edition of one of the greatest classics of English literature and has some stunning pictures by acclaimed illustrator Joel Stewart. Priced at £5.99 this is going to a great one for us to read together at bedtime. You can buy it HERE…and *whispers* its on offer at the moment.
