We’ve been counting down the days to Christmas with all the excitement and anticipation of a 6 year old child on Christmas Eve! There’s no time quite like the festive season where families come together to spend a few days in each other’s company, exchange gifts, enjoy giant roasts and watch some Xmas specials on the old telly.
We’re on a mission to make the Christmas shopping easier this year for the parents by writing an ongoing blog series that selects the finest outdoor toys and games for children. You can order online and get the gifts delivered straight to your door, so for those out there who are worried about running around like headless chicken to grab some gifts for their kids this year, don’t worry – we’ll do the running around for you. All you need to do is make a list.
This week we’re looking at Christmas presents that hark back to a simpler time. We’ve said our piece about the state of modern children’s entertainment & games and how they are designed to make the kids lazy and inactive. You’ll find no such computer game consoles and over-elaborate lazy-boy gizmos on offer here!
Wicken Toys is about providing the kind of toys and games that encourage adventure, exploration, fun and a sense of old school outdoor play.
Take for instance the range of wheeled toys that we offer from bicycles to tricycles to Go Karts. These toys are about getting the kids outside and exerting some energy. Not only will the children get some regular exercise, they’ll have fun doing it too!
There are various options for various different ages. Both girls and boys are catered for.
For him there’s the Kettler Sprint Air Racing bicycle that is suitable for boys 2 years+ and provides maximum comfort, speed and safety for the young tykes that love their bikes.
For her there’s the Kettler Sprint Air Racing’s sister bicycle called the Air Princess. It’s essentially a match for the Air Racing with a more girl-appeal in terms of colour and style.
Both Kettler bikes are extremely good for children looking to learn how to ride or wanting to practice until they make perfect. They are excellent Christmas present options that we highly recommend. Both bikes are at the reduced seasonal price of £50 each.
What matters at the end of the day is bringing the smiles to your children’s faces when they get their presents on Christmas morning. It’s all about making the day as fun and exciting for them as possible. And while all their “what I want for Xmas” lists deem as their must-own items you have to remember that mixed in with all these expensive gizmos, computers and elaborate devices should be some traditional, good old fashioned outdoor toys to keep the true spirit of a childhood Christmas alive.
The countdown to that day starts here. :)
