I was asked if I'd review for a website that, previously, I'd not heard of before called 'Wicked Uncle' and, seeing as it's a toy site and the proceeds would go to that wee munchkin of mine I couldn't say no! I was intrigued by the site, as it has a rather different selling point to other toy websites; and I do like it when a site offers something different rather than more of the same.
At Wicked Uncle they're trying to provide a service which appeals to non-parents - To the people who want to buy gifts for children but just don't know children as well as parents might. It's for Uncles and Aunts and friends of the family, people who just need that bit more guidance.
When you on to the site you're presented with the option of picking toys for age groups and genders rather than types of toy, and that's a great way for people who aren't as child-savvy to break things down. You may already know my thoughts on gender and toys, I'm not a fan of splitting them, but there's nothing to stop a person checking the age range for both genders (I did when ordering).
I was given a voucher to order some items (and I paid a few pounds extra just to get the things I wanted) and it was a really nice site to browse. The toys available are great, lots of wooden builds and creative things, less of the plastic flashy toys and more of the traditional which is always going to be a bonus in my books (though there was some plastic flashy, what's life without some plastic flashy!).

So, it's Primark haul time - I'm so glad I've made it to town once a month or so, recently, as I've found some real gems in Primark. Here's hoping I get the chance to go next month too!
I bought a mix of things, some for Ethan and some for me - Azii also picked up a few bits, as you can see above. He bought Ethan a Pez dispenser and re-fills and he got Skye a cute little giraffe toy.
We were a bit torn with what to get, in terms of the Pez dispenser as they had My Little Pony ones, as well as star wars and Ethan's favourite things at the moment are Star Wars, MLP, Minecraft and Lego. Darth Vader won out, though, because he's Darth Vader, Ethan thinks Darth Vader is cool.
Skye's giraffe was a much easier decision, she loves giraffes, cats and bunnies, especially stuffed toys of them all and who could possibly have enough stuffed toy giraffes?! He's a very cute addition to her collection, though - Both the Pez items and the giraffe were £1 each.
