Sneaky Stocking preview.....

Quite a few people have been asking me what I think Father Christmas is putting in my boys stockings. Given that they are 2 years old and 5 months the answer should be a cardboard box and a tangerine but I fear festive madness has had a hand and some toys may be on the cards. Obviously I have no idea what Father Christmas has planned, we will have to wait and see, but if I had to hazard a guess here is what I think they will be getting.

Note: This is NOT a sponsored post but as you will see St Nick has favoured a certain online retailer named after a rainforest in South America (I think he was a little pushed for time). You will definately be able to source all these toys from smaller independent retailers.


1. Luigi the frog - £34 Bla Bla Dolls - this was in fact a birth present but he got so many lovely things it was saved for Christmas.
2. Bubbles - 50p our corner shop
3. Rainbow Stacker - £6 Sainsburys
4. Honks the Goose - £3 Amazon
5. Crocodile clacker - £1 Wilkinsons
6. Books (see below)
7. Alphabet Abacus - £4.95 charity shop


1. Kaleideoscope - £9 Amazon
2. Bouncy Balls - 10p our corner shop
3. Chocolate money - £1 our corner shop
4. Swallow toy with real bird call - £7.25 Amazon - these are lovely they have most birds and when you press their tummy they sound their song.
5. Vintage Fisher Price drill - £8 Ebay
6. Chuppa Chup - 10p our corner shop
7. Bubbles - 50p our corner shop
8. Mr Potato Head - £15 Amazon
9. Grunting Pig - £6 Amazon - this is meant for a dog (!!) but they are brilliant and Lenny thinks they are hysterical!
10. Tangerine - 6p Sainsburys
11. Recycling Truck - £3.50 Early Learning Centre
12. Glockenspiel - £15 Amazon
13. Train Whistle - £4 Amazon
14. Books - (see below)

Animal Gym
The Saggy Baggy Elephant
The Very Helpful Hedgehog
The Happy Lion
The Incredible Book Eating Boy
Lost and Found
The Dot
Bear Has a Story to Tell
