Wicked Uncle – the perfect preset

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s still not too late to find the perfect gift for the hard to buy for children in your life. If you need some inspiration from somewhere to get some fab presents from, have a look at Wicked Uncle (online present buying experience), and get gift ideas for set ages and genders! It takes all the hard work out of the process and just leaves the fun!

Wicked Uncle’s website is brilliantly easy to navigate, even off of a smart phone and I was easily able to select the relevant sub-section to help me narrow down my toy search. Wicked Uncle separate their toys into set age ranges as well as being gender split into girls and boys toys: however, I had a look at both sections and the toys do overlap a little. I don’t actually mind this (I know some people will object) however, I really appreciate the reason this has been set up; it’s because Wicked Uncle is aimed at people buying presents for other children, and the toys are split into age and sex categories depending on what’s popular at that particular time. Having the toys split up into age categories is really helpful, especially if you don’t have children of your own. I know I used to find buying gifts for children really difficult and I could deliberate on a toy for hours.  Wicked Uncle really does make it quick and easy to search for the relevant toys the children will love.

My favourite elements

I really like the how there are some really original and fun looking toys that I haven’t seen anywhere else before. This makes the whole experience even better because you can get a unique gift for that special small person. A lot of the time you see the same toys on adverts and coming up on search engines and it’s actually really refreshing to see some original ideas coming up.

As well as there being an awesome range of toys available, there is also an option for you to have your present gift wrapped and delivered direct to the child. You can even add a hand written card! This would be so handy if you know you won’t get the chance to see them over the Christmas period.

We have kindly been given a voucher to spend at Wicked Uncle to put the whole process to the test. I chose to have two items delivered to our own home without the gift wrapping option as we like to coordinate all our Christmas wrapping. The toys arrived REALLY quickly, even though we selected normal delivery. I ordered them late on Thursday afternoon and they arrived Saturday morning. They items arrived and were sealed securely in a cardboard box. The items were undamaged and in fantastic condition as they had been packed so securely.

What we chose

We chose to get the game ‘Suspend’ so we can have a fun family game to play over Christmas and we’ve also gone for the reinvented classic ‘Illuminated Aqua Dragons Duluxe’. I have such fond memories of my own ‘Sea Monkeys’ that I couldn’t resist the urge to try out the new version.

I’ve had a sneaky play of ‘Suspend’ along with the hubby (and the cat even tried his luck!) but we want to keep it a surprise for the children on Christmas day. Suspend has a really easy concept – you literally just have to balance varying length rods on the frame without it all coming crashing down. I really love hoe easy and compact it is but also how much fun it is. It’s not often that we as adults enjoy the games we play with the children as much as they do, but I can honestly say, this is just fab!

The whole service from Wicked Uncle, from purchase to delivery has been second to none and their helpful age guides have made buying even easier this Christmas. It’s not too late to get ordering but don’t leave it too long – you’ve got until the 21st!

If you’ve liked this, why not try the fab Dancing in My Wellies?
