Christmas shopping is never an easy task – especially if you have absolutely no idea what to get your kids.
This year we’re putting the fun back in shopping for you!
Whether you have a toddler, a pre-teen or a teen – there’s bound to be something on this list they’ll like.
furReal Mama Josie The Kangaroo
This interactive pet toy comes with 3 adorable babies –a boy, a girl, and the third one’s… a surprise! This loving mama responds to touch with 70+ sound-and-motion reactions. She moves her head and arms, hops to music, and can hold and “kiss” her babies while making loving sounds.
Baby Alive Baby Gotta Bounce Doll
This cute doll bounces up and down with impossibly cute laughter when you hold her hands and squeeze her wrist — or repeatedly wave or move in front of her. She actually stands up and bounces on her own! She has 25+ cute sound effects, drinks water and “pees” too, like a baby (bottle and a diaper included).
Play-Doh Kitchen Creations Drizzy Ice Cream Playset
Drizzle a crazy candy coating on your Play-Doh ice cream creations. For the first time ever, this toy ice cream set comes with a pretend syrup that turns into a pretend candy shell when you drizzle it on top of regular Play-Doh compound.
Play-Doh Kitchen Creations Candy Delight Playset
This playset is a treat for the imagination as kids create their own silly gummy bears, pretend candy bars and play candy cups. Fill the top with Play-Doh compound, then turn the crank on the candy machine to see the crazy colourful Play-Doh candies pour out. Scoop the creations into the pretend candy buckets to show them off to friends.
Musical Adventure Elsa and Anna fashion dolls (each doll is sold separately)
Your little girl will love singing along with Elsa and Anna as she belts out a song from Disney’s Frozen 2 movie.
Nerf Ultra One
This motorised blaster has a high-capacity 25-dart dart drum and comes with 25 Nerf Ultra darts. Fire over two dozen darts with the high-performance advantages of this Nerf Ultra blaster.
Nerf Elite 2.0 Shockwave
This blaster features three tactical rails, barrel attachment point, and stock attachment point to optimise for battle. It also has a 15-dart rotating drum to swamp your targets.
The Nerf Elite 2.0 Echo CS-10
This blaster includes a removable stock and barrel extension so you can customise the blaster multiple ways. Take advantage of five tactical rails to add other battle accessories (not included). Comes with 24 Official Nerf darts – load 10 into the clip and keep the rest nearby for reloads.
Cyberverse Battle figures
The Transformers Battle for Cybertron is on! Each figure includes a signature weapon, which disassembles and attaches to the figure to create power-up armour. Voice activation offers an exciting new way to play with Transformers. With each Officer Class figure, activate battle sounds and pulsing lights with voice commands and with each Trooper Class figure, activate pulsing lights in each figure’s chest with voice commands. Officer Class figures command Trooper Class figures with interactive sounds. Figures convert between vehicle and robot modes.
Power Rangers Beast-X King Morpher
When kids strap the morpher to their wrist and move around, they will hear show-inspired (from the Cartoon network show) sounds and phrases. Plus, when they use the included Morph-X key in the Beast-X King Morpher, the Beast-X King mane will flip out and the morpher will enter Beast-X mode, for even more sounds and phrases!
Monopoly for Sore Losers
This hilarious twist on the classic Monopoly game turns losing on its head and celebrates it instead. Players earn cash by doing the typically frustrating things in the game such as going to jail, paying rent on a property, or going bankrupt. And those who really start sinking can make a comeback using the large Mr. Monopoly token that gives players advantages over everyone else.
Still a firm family favourite, this game is a definite must have for travellers, Monopoly Mzansi provides an opportunity for family and friends to come together and enjoy some quality time.
Earn points by spotting words your opponents don’t before time runs out. Shake the grid to mix up the letter cubes. Players have 90 seconds to write down as many words as they can find on the grid before time is up. At the end of the round, score the words. The player with the highest score wins.
It looks and smells like the Play-Doh compound we all know and love, but it has a fun pull-apart effect for a different way to play.
This colourful pre-made slime is as much fun to look at as it is to touch! Stretch it, pull it, let it ooze.
Nerf Elite 2.0 Trio SD-3
Fire 3 darts in a row from the Nerf Elite 2.0 Trio SD-3 blaster that has a tactical rail so you can customise it with different Nerf accessories.
Transformers Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures Action Attackers
Simply convert the figure from vehicle to robot mode in a few steps. The last step of conversion activates the figure’s signature Shot move! Collect all the Action Attackers figures, each sold separately.
