Gifts For Kids – 2017

There’s nothing more heartwarming than seeing the twinkle in your little one’s eye when Christmas comes to town. Let’s face it, the holiday season is all about the kids (and of course spending quality time with your loved ones). And if they don’t know what they want to get from Santa Claus this year, we have a few ideas up our sleeves. 

Toy Kingdom

Spoil your little ones with delightful gifts from the awesome land of Toy Kingdom. This year, Toadie’s Charming Gift Guide will have everything you… oops, we mean… Santa Claus will need to excite the kids this Christmas. The guide has tons of toys that your children will absolutely love, including the Carrera First Nintendo Mario Cart Set 2.4m (R399.90), the Syma X20 White Quadcopter (R499.90), assorted My Little Pony Friendship is Magic playsets (R329,90) and the classic Operation Game (R449,90).

Toys R Us

This festive season, you can get your hands on a variety of awesome toys with Geoffrey’s Top Toy Picks valid from 23 October – 24 December 2017. There’s something for all ages, including Radio Control Monster Spinners (R199), the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack (R899.90), and the My Little Pony The Movie – Under The Sea scene pack (R299.90). But if your kids are more interested in the tech stuff, why not spoil them with a Nintendo Switch Console (R5 299.90).

Polly Potter’s Toy Store

For educational toys, furniture, dress-up stuff, puzzles, and arts and crafts, Polly Potter’s Toy Store will certainly have something special and unique for your little ones. A few of our favourites include the Deluxe Toolbelt Set (R330) perfect if your little darling loves to tinker and ‘build’ around the house, the adorable Teamson Kids Classic Play Kitchen (R3 500) if your little ones want to cook up a storm and let’s not forget the cute Mermaid Blanket (R295) because who doesn’t want to be a mermaid!

The Gadget Shop

Kids these days are into their gadgets and techy stuff. And the Gadget Shop certainly has it all, from drones and robotics to remote-controlled automobiles, music players and gaming items. They also offer other fun, educational and exciting toys that are less ‘gadgetty’, including the cool Keycraft Human Skeleton Clay Kit (R299) for those who want to become a doctor when they grow up, and the Diamond Blocks Minion Pirate (R499) which offers creative “Do It Yourself” building fun! We want the whole collection of these guys.


You can never go wrong with a bicycle! It’s one of the key experiences we all go through while growing up: learning how to petal, learning how to steer, learning how to ride it without the training wheels. It’s a must for all children. Also, it’s great for improving their coordination and balance. And at Makro, they have a few kids bicycles on promotion. For boys, girls, toddlers and older children, head to Makro and take your pick from options ranging between R399 – R1 299.

Do you kids love Elsa and Anna from Frozen? If yes, then you need to check out the character goodies on They will absolutely love dressing up in the Elsa costume dress (R450) while carrying their Frozen Purse Bag (R100). There’s even a Disney Frozen Crystal Junior Rotary Duvet Set (R249).

And no childhood is complete without owning their own collection of LEGO®! has a variety of LEGO packs available ranging from Marvel, Superheroes, Star Wars, Classic and more. They’ll spend hours building, creating and just having a blast with these well-known and popular blocks.
