If you’ve got curious kids who ask a million questions a day, love going out on adventures, and generally keep you on your toes (!), then this is the Christmas gift guide for you!
Christmas Gifts for Curious kids
Polkas Bike Helmet
Hornit | £29.99 | Website
This spotty helmet is stylish and keeps your curious kids protected – it’s a win-win! There is an integrated light as an extra safety feature and the design is colourful and fun. They can go exploring to their hearts’ content!
Make sure to measure your child’s head before purchasing, though, as we found the helmets to be big. They are urban lids (favoured by BMX riders) rather than the shape of traditional bike helmets.
Slime & Snow Messy Play
Zimpli Kids | £2.99+ | Gelli Baff (aff) ~ Snoball Play (aff)~ Slime Baff (aff)
Slime is everywhere at the moment and these amazing products are sure to get your kids squealing with delight! Whether they want to have a bath in pink goo or red slime, Zimpli Kids have got you covered. And your curious kid will love watching the bathwater change before their very eyes!
And if the forecast isn’t promising a white Christmas this year, you can always use the snow kit to have a post-turkey snowball fight!
(Pssst – for any mums panicking about the state the bath will be in afterwards, rest assured – you can either dilute more so it washes away or use the “magical” mix that coverts goo back to water!).
Scoop | £33 for 6 | Website
A magazine subscription is a great gift for kids because they keep getting something new. Plus, kids love getting their own post!
Scoop magazine is sent out bi-monthly and is aimed at kids aged 7-12yrs. There is a mixture of original fiction and nonfiction, and notable contributors include Raymond Briggs, Jacqueline Wilson, and Tom Whipple.
Every edition is different – there could be poetry, interviews, activities, short stories, quizzes, comics – so there’s sure to be something that gets your curious kids hooked!
Amazon | from £12.99 | Twisty Petz (aff)
My kids are all about Twisty Petz this year! If you’ve not come across them yet, they are pretty bracelets with strategically placed beads so that when you twist them in the right place, they turn into free-standing animals! It really is a clever idea (and a great solution for emergency entertainment as they’ll always have a toy with them!)
This pack includes 3 different pets.
World Map Jigsaw
Orchard Toys | £13.97 | Website (aff)
We’ve been buying Orchard Toys for years because they’re a great way to introduce young children to board games. This 150 piece jigsaw is aimed at kids aged 5-10yrs and depicts, not just a map of the world, but animals and landmarks too.
This is a great way to get your curious kids enthused about the world!
One World Futbol
One World Play Project £35 | Website (aff)
If your curious kids like to find innovative ways to solve problems then they’ll love this football – it is designed to never go flat or need a pump AND all purchases fund play projects in disadvantaged areas across the world.
It’s been described as the “unpoppable ball” but it isn’t overly hard and will make a great gift this Christmas.
Retro Popcorn Maker
Find Me A Gift | £27.99 | Website
My kids love watching family movies together, and this popcorn maker transforms our living room into an authentic cinema experience! The machine uses hot air rather than oil to pop the kernels, so it’s a healthy snack, and you can flavour it however you wish. Mmmm!
Clever Tykes | £14.99 | Website (aff)
Another problem-solving gift here – these three inspirational books are designed to empower kids to be the best they can be. Each story follows a different child who has to rise to the challenge they’re facing.
The books are aimed at children aged 5-9 years and the stories are interesting and a good length for this age group. Plus, your kids may have come across these books at school as the founders secured a sponsorship in 2017 to gift a set to every primary school in the UK!
Polka Dot Dome Umbrella
Susino | £7.99 | Website
Now my curious kids LOVE to be outside. This polka dot dome umbrella means the adventures don’t have to stop, even when it’s raining. The brolly is easy to put up and has a plastic button over the mechanism to stop little fingers getting trapped.
ON! Juniper | £3.50+ | Website
A bath bomb with an exciting surprise is sure to grab the attention of your curious kids! On! Juniper have bath bombs that change the colour of the water or contain a little gift inside. For an extra charge, you can present the bath bombs in a unicorn or mermaid pyramid box, to make it extra special.
All On! Juniper products are made with organic, natural ingredients.
Paddington Wooden Cabin Bed
Happy Beds | £265.99 | Website
And after all those adventures, let your curious kids have one last blast of fun – a sleep in one of these gorgeous cabin beds! The drawers come in four different colour combinations so you’ll definitely find one they like.
Cabin beds are a great way to save space as all the storage is tucked underneath. This one includes shelves and cupboards, and there are also raised sides around the bed to keep your little one safe.
