Sharing the good times with family and friends makes the festive season a wonderful time of the year. It’s all about giving and putting smiles on faces but sometimes it’s really hard to think of great gift ideas, especially for young kids whose attention spans tend to be quite short…especially in the excitement of Christmas!

At twoscoops.com.au we’ve done the work for you and identified all-time favourites that are great for the Christmas stocking, under the Christmas tree or even to have on hand for kids’ birthdays and last minute occasions when a gift is needed.

The adorable Ty Beanie Boos make great Christmas stocking fillers for fans of these gorgeous plush buddies. For some more cuddly fun, the Gund plush toys are ideal as a special gift for babies celebrating their first Christmas!

Perennial favourite LEGO provides hours of ‘constructive’ playtime! These colourful little bricks have been a reliable source of fun for decades…and with the fantastic LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Duplo, LEGO Friends and LEGO Star Wars sets to choose from, the holidays will be built for fun!

Outdoor activity is where kids really thrive and with trampolines and swing sets from Plum, you’ll enjoy seeing your kids having fun every day for years. Sometimes dressups make their way outdoors and with our great range of costumes from favourite movies and TV shows, don’t be surprised to see Marvel and DC Super Heroes or Disney Princesses taking over the backyard with creative adventures.

On rainy days it’s great to be able to turn to a puzzle or game. We have board games and puzzles that certainly come in handy and bring the family together for fun, engaging afternoons. But if you’re worried the kids will be ‘driving’ you crazy you could always check out the Bruder range of German-made, top quality trucks and vehicles for your budding motorists to enjoy.

For an extra thoughtful gift, a product from the environmentally friendly Green Toys range promotes kids’ awareness of the world around them. These are long-lasting, durable toys with an important message. As well, the Baby Born range of nurturing dolls and accessories is fantastic for instilling the idea of caring for and being kind to others.

And that’s what Christmas is all about…

From us to you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
