Last Minute Stocking Fillers

What to buy for those stocking filler for grown ups. You want novelty but you want practical. Well if you’re looking for someone who likes their gadgets then this might be what you’re after.



I was sent this to review and have to say I was sceptical it would work, but I am very impressed. It holds my phone securely and looks great. It would fit in the home or the office and makes a great talking point when people see it for the first time!! Take a look at this and other promotional gifts here. With 4 more sleeps you’ll find some great ideas without the hassle of queuing!!

FurReal Snuggimals – Toy Review

So cute and small, you’ll want to adopt them all! FurReal Friends Snuggimals palm-sized pets are a handful of fun. Pet the adorable Snuggimals puppies on their backs and they’ll move their heads and wag their tails, ready for playtime! Snuggimals kitties love to have their tummies rubbed, and furry Snuggimals bunnies are comfiest when they cuddle into your palm. Stroke it’s back and watch the cute Snuggimals seal wiggle about in your hand. You can choose from more than 20 different Snuggimals pets, but it’s more fun with more than one!

These make ideal stocking fillers for the upcoming festivities, or even, at and RRP of £7.99, just as a treat for having a good week. The idea is simple enough, little furry animals which fit in your hand and when you stroke them they make noises. The recommended age for these is 4+ and when I asked B if she wanted to try them out she said she would love to. B is 7 though, and was a little disappointed that they didn’t do as much as she had expected them to do! However, H loved them and keeps stroking and talking to them as if they are real animals!! Now I personally would buy these for H even though she is only 2, but that’s got to be the parents choice and as such I wouldn’t buy them for friends children unless I knew they would be ok with it! I have to say though, they are very cute and soft and I can’t fault them at all for quality. Ideal for little girls who love animals!!

ZingZillas: The Album

Anyone with preschool kids who watch CBeebies will know what I mean when I say the ZingZillas have gone down a storm with the little ones. The hit show follows the members of the band, Zak,Tang, Panzee and Drum through their musical adventures. The band of primate friends live to play music, creating their unique ZingZilla sound each day for The Big Zing.

Musical guests visit the island too and with musical influences from rock, soul, jazz and samba, their music is guarenteed to get the little ones dancing! So what better way than to have 26 of their hits on CD! The wait is over, released on 4th October 2010 you can now get your hands on the album and if your little one is a fan this is a great treat for them!Zingzillas - The Album

So when I was given the chance to review the album, I jumped at the chance. H loves the show, often asking for it on when it’s not! What I wasn’t prepared for was the enthusiasm from B when she heard it too. They both get up and dance and it’s a great alternative to the TV being on in the afternoon! I’m also impressed with the track list, sooften these kids CD’s come out with 9 or 10 tracks and it’s over in no time at all. But with 26 tracks it is spot on. We’ve not listened to it all in one sitting as yet but it means we hear different songs each time!

In a few weeks we are going up to Scotland and the drive is going to be long and this is the first thing I am packing. Might not be my cup of tea for the journey but if they are happy things will run smoothly!

The RRP is £9.99 and for me, well worth the money. It’s an ideal stocking filler, and lets face it we’re at that time of year already!
