Sinterklaas is arriving this weekend and Santa will be here next month! Are your kids already asking for everything under the sun, like mine? I’ve narrowed down all their toy demands to the ones that are the most popular and must-haves of the 2018 season. Great if you’re running out of ideas on what toys to gift them this season, their birthday (my gosh, didn’t they just have one of those?!) or just want to pick them up a little something for no reason at all; I’ve got you covered!
Below are some items from Joya’s wishlist. Some she already has and some she really, really wants! These gift ideas are perfect for girls aged 6 to 12!
Poopsie Surprise Unicorn
Joya’s favorite things right now are unicorns and slime and the Poopsie Surprise Unicorn has them both! This is one of the hottest and most sought after toy this season! Make magical unicorn poop (slime) with a little unicorn magic and sparkle. Each time you feed your surprise unicorn and sit her on her glitter potty, she creates surprise, collectible unicorn poop. Omg! You can even customize the unicorn poop and transform it multiple times!

Every Rainbocorn hatches from its bright mystery egg and has a unique reversible sequin heart that reveals a magical surprise when swiped! All 12 sequin hearts reveal different surprises and are removable, so you can wear them too! Every Rainbocorn has a fluffy, bright unicorn mane that’s fun to brush and groom. Their sparkly horns and butterfly wings add even more magic to every cute creature. Every Rainbocorn also comes with a little baby Boo-Boocorn, a tiny collectable hiding in a little egg!

I remember when I was at school there was a point when friendship bracelets were all the rage. My best friend made me a few and then tried to teach me how to make them.

We were lucky enough to review this fun product and make lots of colourful friendship bracelets. You can read it all here! Joya loooved the KumiKreator! ~ We highly recommend this as a gift!

Kids will need to use the crowbar (that comes with it) to pop open the lock on this crate and release this little monster from his prison! Crate Creatures make over 45 different sounds when they’re turned upside down, dropped, or knocked over. When you pull his tongue, he’ll make funny noises, vibrate, and his eyes will glow. Even better, your kids can record their voice and this creature will play back their message in their own “creature voice”. There are a bunch of different Crate Creatures to choose from, like Blizz, Stubbs and Sizzle.
