Wicked Uncle Toy Review

We have just received some very special gifts in the post from Wicked Uncle, to review. After visiting the Wicked Uncle website, I was amazed by the amount of choice there with regards to gifts that I could get for my two children.

My son is very interested in science and engineering so I was pleased to see that this website offered the kinds of gifts that I had been looking to purchase for him. I did take quite some time to choose the gift that I thought he would like the most, as there were several that would have suited perfectly.

For my daughter, there was also a wide range of options of toys that would appeal to her. Previously, I have been upset by the idea that toys are divided up into ‘boys’ toys and ‘girls’ toys. Wicked Uncle takes a different view of this and although there are still the traditional categories in the search to look for toys that are likely to appeal to ‘boys’ or ‘girls,’ their view is that any child can play with any type of toy. I realise that some people still search for things that are traditionally boy’s and girl’s toys but this website also has categories for age range as well as areas of interest, or you can do search through all of the toys that are available, using the straight forward and easy to use navigation here. Wicked Uncle do not primarily sell toys to parents but have Aunties, Uncles, Grandparents, Godparents and others in mind, hence the company name.

After lots of thinking, I decided upon the green flip alarm clock for my son and the Hot Dots – Learn about our wonderful world book with a special pen that can help my daughter to read this more independently. My son has had terrible trouble waking up in the morning lately. I think maybe the winter weather and darkness in the mornings hasn’t helped. The alarm clock that I have chosen is simply on when the word ‘On’ is facing up and ‘Off’ when it is flipped over.

I added the option of the presents being gift wrapped for them, with a little message in each. I really liked the ten different types of wrapping paper on offer and chose two that I thought would most appeal to my children.

I was very impressed with the service from Wicked Uncle. The process of finding and buying the toys online was straight forward. I also was given buyers protection for the gifts via email. The toys did not take long to arrive and when they did, they were beautifully wrapped with a sticker to show the message I’d written for each child on the packages.

I would certainly recommend a visit to the Wicked Uncle website. There are some very cool toys on there for inquisitive minds.

Look out for our Instagram photos #WUToyStory to see the gifts in action.
