1. The Cozmo Robot by Anki, £199.99.
Robots are always great for both Boys and Girls, but the Cozmo is not just a ‘fun robot, it’s a an adventure of companionship and learning!! All you need is a compatible IOS or Android device for the App and you are a way teaching your new friend.

2. Lego Boost. £149.99
Ok… who doesn’t love Lego….? I know I do.
This one seems to be similar to the Cosmo again, however this time we have a 840+ pieces to put together to build our buddy, oh and the slight fact that it’s not just a robot.. with a free app and all the pieces to build five different creations – including a robot, a guitar, and even an interactive cat. The set includes over 840 LEGO pieces, an encoded motor and colour and distance sensor.
Anyone else think he looks like Johnny Number 5 from the short circuit film?
3. FurReal Roarin’ Tyler the Playful Tiger, £134.99
Get the Previous and add fur? Not exactly, Fur real friends are a bit more straight forward aimed at the younger player.
“Animal lovers will be obsessed with this fluffy tiger cub, which will interact with the family and become like your very own pet tiger. Make noise and he will roar back or stroke his ears and his head might move, with over 100 sound and motion combinations, you never know what he’ll do next.”
Apparently you can get Pug’s too :O
4. Leckford, Wooden Dolls house £100
More of a traditional approach to Toys.. Dolls houses, Knitting and such is back on the rise. Important for teaching young ones about home living and traditional values. Great for collecting and can keep value..
Leckford House is an exquisite doll’s house that will be the inspiration for years upon years of childhood imagination and adventure. This is a gift that can be passed on from one generation to the next. With a beautiful pink roof and door and large Georgian windows, Leckford House has a feeling of classic, elegant grandeur. It opens from either side to reveal two glorious central staircases
5. Lego Winter Holiday Train £79.99
If you are a Lego collector, you will probably have snapped up this train already. Seasonal products like this is a reminder of how much we can’t get enough of Lego..
