Wicked uncle *review*


Does anyone else have trouble finding gifts for someone else’s child? Or my your own for that matter, they change their minds so often!

I know I do, choosing gifts for boy who was 10 at the beginning of april was so hard! I ended up asking the lovely Stevie from a Cornish mum blog (go have a read, she’s great) for inspiration. Then I had girls 8th birthday coming up and again was at a loss, is she too old for dollies? Toy animals? What do 8 year old girls like? This is where the fab wicked uncle comes into its own. You can search visa couple of different criteria, so I chose girl, age 8, and it brings up various options which are popular with children in that age range! But don’t despair if your girl is a tomboy or if your boys love to copy mummy and like to play dollies. Wicked uncle know not all girls like barbies and not all boys like diggers. So there are other criteria you can use instead. You can just search by age, by the category of toy or just browse the most popular toys of the moment.

Standard delivery is £2.95 no matter the size & weight! Now that rivals most toy shops for starters! They also offer express delivery and Saturday delivery so they cover all bases (even if you forget until the day before!)

Now if for whatever reason the little persons birthday went out of your head until the last minute wicked uncle will even gift wrap it and write a card for you. The cards are hand written so they look authentic so it means you just click, wait, hand out. It couldn’t be any more time saving!

They also have a birthday reminder service which you can add birthdays to and each year they will send you an email with age appropriate gift suggestions.

Checkout was easy to use and not over complicated or drawn out, so if it’s reaching the 4pm deadline for orders don’t worry checkout is quite quick & easy.

I chose standard delivery and it arrived 2 days later. The toys where packed well and everything arrived in great condition, no dented or battered boxes.

It’s such a handy website even if you do know what your children like I bet you’d get even more ideas!

I received a money off voucher in return for an honest review which I have provided.
