Review: Wicked Uncle


When it comes to buying new toys for Blake I tend to enjoy buying them online. It can be tough going into a shop with Blake as he hates shopping and the tantrums start. 

Wicked Uncle are definitely one of my favourite online shops due to their easy to navigate site.  With products being arranged by both age and gender being able to find a gift is simple task.

If you have read my blog regularly you may remember that I chose some great toys with them before and were very impressed with what they had to offer. I've now been given more credit to spend with them on some new toys now that Blake is a bit older.

Like last time I was very impressed with the selection of products with many of our favourite brands such as Melissa and Doug, Hape, learning resources and more.

The first item I chose was the Fire engine convertible book and play mat. 
I knew when I first saw it that it would be something Blake would love. It's such a fun 3 in 1 book where you can read a story, use as a fold out play mat and last of all made into a sit in fire engine. Blake has adored popping on his fireman jacket and pretending to drive his own engine rushing to save the day! 

Next up was the Stanley the seahorse interactive book. By downloading the free app you can bring this sweet story to life. All you have to do is Simply point your device at any of the magical pages and the entire scene transforms into a 3D animation with sound effects, you can even tap the characters and explore the underwater scene. 

Sticking with the water theme is the build a boat bath time fun set. Blake loves bath time, and we like to make sure he has some fun bath time toys to keep him entertained,  hopefully without splashing so much. Hence why I chose this fun and colourful bath puzzle. With 6 slot in pieces to make up the boat and 3 colourful sea creatures: fish, star fish and whale. The pieces all float and can be stuck to the side of the bath or tiles when wet.

Last of all is the Garage convertible playbook. An ideal hardback book that converts into a playmat and pop-up building. This is perfect for travel or on the go! All you have to do is fold out the playmat and stand up the pop-up garage, measuring 30 cm tall and wide. There are 20 press-out characters to play with too.
