I have to admit I think this is such a fantastic service, I'm awful at buying little people presents so will be taking full advantage.
Wicked Uncle - Review
We've all been there. It's a universal problem bound to rear its head time and time again. There's a child you have to buy a gift for and you have no idea where to start. My children are aged 2 and 1... I'd have no idea what to buy a 13 year old girl. What about those parents who raise a trio of boys but have a 4 year old niece to buy for? Wicked Uncle solves all of those problems and does the hard work for you.
Wicked Uncle are not just an online toy shop, but are the complete gift buying service. Their website is simple to use and starts with an easy filter and search feature. You tell them the sex and age of the child you're buying for and it provides you with a list of age and gender appropriate gifts. You can even have your choice gift wrapped and sent direct to the recipient. It's the perfect service for parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents; for absolutely anyone to use when they're stuck for ideas or in a hurry. My brother doesn't have children of his own, but has several nieces, nephews and Godchildren. I can picture him sat at his computer come Christmas time buy gifts for all of those children within 10 minutes and being stress free.
I decided to try out their service and get a new toy for each of my children. The search worked great, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that although you can search by boy or girl, they didn't attach a gender to too many of the toys and avoided most negative steroetypes. Within just a few minutes, I had a John Deere Animal Sounds Hay Ride Tractor in my cart for Clayton to remind him of our recent trip to Coombe Mill. For Alice, I opted for Manhattan Toys' Create & Play Pattern Blocks. Less than 2 days later, they were sat playing with them! I was pretty impressed to say the least.
With birthday party invites expected to flood in through the school years, with siblings and friends having children, the list of people to buy gifts for is always growing. I can safely say that I will be using Wicked Uncle in the future and would quite happily recommend it to anyone.
Disclosure - I was given credit to purchase these toys in return for this review. All words and opinions are my own however and are honest.

A great selection of toys there and what a wonderful idea for a business.
My 3 year old has a selection of friends and they all range from 7 months old to 10 years! This is certainly a service that would benefit me.
Both those toys look lovely, I know my kids would be happy to receive them!
I've started hearing things about My Wicked Uncle recently and it has all been good, may have to check them out!
Oh I totally adore the blocks. They are so colourful. The website is great for people who have no idea what yo get kids
