Back in February the toy gift service Wicked Uncle challenged us to use their website to find the perfect baby gift for Little Mister H. We enthusiastically accepted.
Poor Little Mister H doesn’t actually have that many books or toys as they often get commandeered by his older sister. And she isn’t overly happy with him playing with the baby toys that used to be hers either.
As a result, I am always excited when I get the opportunity to get some bits and pieces for the baby of the family. And I’d already heard great things about Wicked Uncle and their choice of toys. So I embarked on the challenge knowing that I was bound to find some fabulous gifts for our little dude.
Finding a perfect baby gift on Wicked Uncle
The Wicked Uncle website
The Wicked Uncle website is designed to take the stress out of buying presents for children.
We all want to pick the perfect present for our children, nieces, nephews, little cousins or friends. But it can be impossible to know what to buy. What is age appropriate? What present would be suitable for their interests?
Wicked Uncle has chosen the best toys and put them on their website. They are easy to find by age and gender or by interest – Adventurer, Brainiac, Outdoorsy etc.
Finding a gift that was suitable for an eight-month-old baby was easy. I was able to go straight from Wicked Uncle’s home page to their selection of presents for babies. And if I wanted to, then I could have refined the search further by picking that I wanted to view toys for baby boys.
The choice is fabulous. There really isn’t a bad product among them. And Wicked Uncle sells many of my favourite baby brands including Lamaze, Ragtales and CuddleDry.
One of the best features of the website is that once you click on an item, you can easily see how many are in stock. This is brilliant. As unfortunately there have been a number of times when I have found the perfect gift only to find that there aren’t enough in stock.
At the checkout, I could select that I wanted the toys gift wrapped. There was even the option to choose from a variety of wrapping paper. And if I decided that I wanted to send a card with my present, then Wicked Uncle will hand write my message to ensure the personal touch. I think this is such a lovely idea and I don’t know of other gift websites that offer the same service.
Another feature I loved, was the little thank you card that came with the present. I felt that it was these little touches that made the Wicked Uncle website stand out from its competitors.
So what did I choose for Little Mister H? Well, I decided to select a mixture of practical and delightful.
Little Mister H dribbles when he is teething. I use dribble bibs to stop his clothes from getting soaked in drool. And so part of his gift was this cute pack of fun bandana bibs from Zippy.
The brightly coloured designs immediately caught my eye. And these bandana bibs are completely gorgeous. They are made from soft cotton and have an absorbent fleece backing. Very handy when you want to stop my baby from becoming a soggy mess. And the practical double poppers mean that they will fit Little Mister H until he is two years old.
Plus at £12.95 for four bibs, they are fun, stylish, practical and bargain-licious. The perfect present for any baby. And I am sure Mum and Dad would also approve.
I then fell in love with this A to Z Alphabet Book and this adorable Rabbit in Dungarees – Baby Rattle both by Ragtales.
Little Mister H doesn’t have that many books and so I had to get him this lovely cloth book that teaches the alphabet using some cute animation and a little text. At the moment, Little Mister H loves to look at the pictures and chew the fabric. But I am sure that this book will continue to engage him as he grows older.
The book is presented beautifully in an illustrated box with a magnetic clasp. Meaning that the Ragtales A to Z Alphabet Book is a fantastic present to give a newborn baby. It would also make a delightful baby shower, Christening or Welcome to the World gift.
This rabbit baby rattle also by Ragtales is the ideal present to team with the cloth book and I adore it. Little Mister H is in love too. It is very popular. The fabric is lovely and soft and the rabbit is very cute. And Little Mister H’s current favourite hobby is to thrash his arms around to make the bunny rabbit rattle.
I thought that the products on the Wicked Uncle website were fantastic and I WAS able to pick the perfect present for our baby boy. Also, it is the little touches such as the handwritten card and pre-addressed thank you card mean that ensures that Wicked Uncle stands out from other websites.
