is my first experience ordering from the Wicked Uncle site and I thought it was relatively straightforward to
navigate. I like that you can search
easily for appropriate gifts for children by age and popularity.
might be clued up on suitable toys for boys aged between 6 and 8 but when it
comes to my nieces or children outside my boys age range I quickly lose touch
with what would be well received.
Whenever I pick out a present I want the child to like it, I would hate
for them to feel disappointed, so its important to me that I order from sites
tailored perfectly to the target age group.
Uncle is there to help the uncles, aunties, godparents and grandparents make
the right purchasing decision. If you
do not have children yourself or they are long grown up (and flown the nest!)
then it can be quite daunting picking out presents. My mum just gives me money to choose something but now we have
stumbled upon this site she might actually prefer to have a good browse
range of gifts is vast with plenty to suit the adventurer, explorer types or
those who prefer crafting. It’s useful
having an extensive choice that does not require children to be stuck in front
of a screen (the boys preferred option at the moment so doing my best to
motivate them to try other things!). I
like that many of the toys require them to be energetic or use their
imagination. They also have
opportunities to learn more about the world around them. The options seem very educational so I would
definitely be happy to order again and recommend to others to see what the site
has to offer.
also have a dreadful memory so I love that the site enables you to add birthday
reminders so do not forget an important date!
When you are juggling lots of different things it can be tricky to
remember everything but some children have long unforgiving memories so its
best to make sure you get an email reminder as a helping hand!
When you have added everything to your basket you have the
option of wrapping presents and adding a handwritten card, which is a useful
feature if you are not there yourself to hand over the gift. A handwritten card is also a more thoughtful
gesture than a typed message. They also included a pre-filled thank you postcard which is one way to encourage polite behaviour in children as its always nice to have a thank you when you manage to order a brilliant present they love!
This is what I ordered, ideal as a start to our
Christmas shopping, two action toys for my lively boys and the story cubes to build on their story telling skills. I will certainly be adding more presents from the age 8 category before December.
