Snow at Christmas is every child’s wish, and you can make that wish come true with Buzz Snow. The perfect Christmas Eve box filler that once hydrated looks and feels just like snow – except it won’t melt!

Air Ball is a fun floating ball that can be played on surfaces such as laminate, wood, and even thin carpet. It’s perfect for indoor play without the damage associated with ball games in the house! Great for letting off steam during the Christmas holidays! Available to buy here.
There is so much fun to be had with this super cool Wall Racer. A gravity-defying sports car that can climb and race up walls and across ceilings! The bright LED headlights make it ideal for night time driving!

Social media is fast becoming an essential part of daily life for teens today. It’s a place for them to connect with friends and become creative by producing their own content and video. The trouble is content creation requires equipment which can become an expensive hobby! Well, not to worry because The Studio Creator is an affordable way to enhance video content with everything you need inside one box. Perfect for budding YouTubers or TikTok wannabes. Included in the box is an adjustable tripod, smartphone holder, LED ring light which tilts 180° and has three different light settings, a 24-page Guidebook with essential checklists and hints and tips and a green screen backdrop to change the appearance of your background! SRP £24.99 available to buy from Smyths.
If you are looking for device accessories, I’d recommend PuroBasic for kids because unlike most headphones the volume is limited to 85dB. Listening to music that is too loud can cause damage to children’s eardrums and can even lead to noise-induced hearing loss. Reducing the volume means that you can protect your children’s hearing. Puro Sound Labs kid headphones have an advanced sound-optimizing Puro Balanced Response Curve which means they emit crystal-clear sound. The ear cups and headband are covered with vegan leather which is soft and durable. The headphones are fully adjustable for a comfortable fit. Compatible with all devices that have a 3.5mm audio connection. Available in Pink, Green, Blue and Red from *Amazon £19.99.
I think The FourFit Mini would make a great gift this Christmas! An activity tracker band specifically for children that still has the features of an adult fit band The FourFit Mini is the only children’s fitness tracker to include heart rate tracking as standard! There are goal tracking features, reminders to move, step tracking, sleep tracking and vibration alarm. It’s also mud and splash proof which is ideal because we all know what kids can be like! Up to 5-day battery life and rapid charge means little time is wasted charging! Suitable for ages 6+ available to buy here for £24.99.

A book I think everyone could do with reading is: This Book Is Anti-Racist. As parents, all we really want is happy children, raised well with good values and kind hearts.
