Christmas Gift Finds for the Family

Updated on October 26, 2011

Take the stress out of your Christmas shopping this year. Here’s a surefire way to make sure that you have something special to give to the people you care about and there all here in one hub. These absolute bargains (they really are!) all have savings of at least 55% at the time of writing. Whatsmore, they all come highly recommended, ensuring that your gift choice will be both well received and well remembered.

For Toddlers

The Smart e-Bear

Described by the manufacturers as being "the gap between 21st century technology and timeless, loveable plush. Children play interactively by squeezing the toy's hands or feet. Children select stories such as the Three Little Pigs, or Play games such as Simon Says, or just listen to their favorite songs. Parents select all the content from the website and can change the content on the toy at any time with a simple USB connection to their PC or Mac" I have to confess to not actually testing this toy but, judging by the five star customer reveiws, I suspect that it's an absolute gem, especially at it's current bargain price.

For Little Boys

Martian Matter Alien Lab Playset.

This super set by Hasbro offers creative fun for little boys who dream of making spaceships and alien creatures on their own magical planet. Hasbro say, “Get ready for some creative fun that’s totally out of this world! Explore alien-making technologies and futuristic experiments with this ALIEN LAB playset! Use the included LUNAR LAVA gel and reusable METEOR MUD compound to create the creepiest, slimiest, ooze-filled alien forms! Then use the tools to flatten or dissect your alien creatures on the light-up table! Dream up endless adventures and experiments for your aliens and creative fun that’s completely cosmic!"
