Wicked Uncle | Review

Saturday, 21 May 2016

A few short weeks ago I was contacted by a company called Wicked Uncle, and asked if I wanted to review for them. I had never heard of them before, so of course did a little bit of research first. After just a quick browse my answer became a 'yes!'.


Wicked Uncle is an online shop full of fun, unusual and unique gifts for children. They don't just offer gifts though, they are unique in that they offer a present service for birthdays and other special occasions! These gifts can even be gift wrapped and sent with a handwritten card, and then you can choose to add a birthday reminder so you don't forget the next year!

The clue is in the name that they're not just for parents either - they're there to help uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc to find great gifts for children of all ages. This is made simple by their great categories, where you can pick a gift by gender and then age, by type of gift or just by picking from a selection of the most popular toys.

Even with the great categories I found it hard to choose. Not because I couldn't find anything, but because there was so much choice! I decided to get something for each child (although I knew Indie would claim everything anyway so tried to make it suitable for both).

The first thing I picked was this really sweet dinosaur push/pull toy. It also comes with a handle so once Parker can walk he can push it along - although as I thought Indie currently loves doing it for him! The toy is bright, fun and Parker loves pushing it backwards and forwards along the floor.



For Indiana I opted for a type of toy she hasn't played with before. These mini safari animals have been a huge hit already, and even came along with us on our recent summer holiday! They're hand-painted and excellent quality. Indie loves roll-playing with them and we've been able to teach her about a whole new set of animals which is great. I do wish you got more in a pack (especially for the price), but that hasn't seemed to bother Indie at all.




As a sneaky little treat for Jack and I, I couldn't resist these chocolate popping candy frogs. Jack seemed to approve as he ate most of them (he left me one haha), and I thought they were ok. I'm a Cadbury's girl so wasn't massively in love with the chocolate. I loved the popping candy aspect though.


Overall I was really impressed with the service and products from the website. They arrived well packaged, and it would have been easy for me to get them gift wrapped if I wanted to. Their range of toys is fantastic as there's some great products you wouldn't normally think to buy as a present! They do all seem on the pricier side though and gift wrap is £2.95 (plus £1.50 for each additional gift!), so do be aware of this if you are going to order.

Disclosure - We received £40 credit to spend on the website. However all opinions are honest and my own.
