I searched for unicorn gifts, and these are just 5 of the best that Wicked Uncle has to offer...

Unicorn Colour Changing Umbrella

We all know how unpredictable the British weather is, so it's always a good idea to be armed with a trusty umbrella just in case! This pretty umbrella is decorated in unicorns and rainbows and even features a super special glitter handle too. What makes this umbrella extra special though, is that once it gets wet, lots of mini unicorns appear as the colour changing magic happens. How fun!

Unicorn Stack - Balancing Game

If your child loves games, then you can't go wrong with this fun twist on the classic balancing game. The aim of the game is to stack the 15 pastel unicorns into a wobbly tower - without them toppling over of course! A great game that can be played with friends, siblings, or even solo. Play again and again for endless fun.

Party Unicorn - Crystal Art By Numbers

If your recipient is in to their arts and crafts, then why not choose this crystal art by numbers kit. It comes with everything you need to create a beautiful sparkling unicorn canvas, as well as a picture frame to display the completed artwork! I love that this is a gift that can't be completed within minutes and thrown to the side, as it will need time and care to get the shiny gemstones correctly in place. A fab gift for older unicorn lovers.

Bath Time Unicorns - Squirts & Lights up

A gift now for younger unicorn lovers, these fun toys would make a great addition to bath-time. The set contains 2 water squirters and a third that flashes and lights up when in contact with the water. Great for imaginative and sensory play - just be careful you don't get too wet whilst supervising!

Unicorn Sparkle - Luxury Bath Set

This final gift is something even I would love to receive - a beautifully gift-wrapped set of 5 handmade unicorn-themed bath time treats, that are also 100% vegan friendly. The set contains 2 scented bath fizzes, a raspberry bath creamer, a rainbow jasmine bath mallow and a solid soap scented with cinnamon and orange. Dreamy!

4 Reasons Why Children Should be Learning History


Almost everyone does some form of history in school - but often, it doesn’t cover as much as it should. Many people also consider history as a subject to be surplus to requirements. The truth is, though, that history can teach us a lot about where we live, the people around us, culture, travel, and more. And sometimes, the more children get access to learning experiences that involve history, they might find their own era in time that they fall in love with. 


One of the significant impacts that history can have on children is that they can see just how diverse the world is - and they can get a good understanding of how it came to be how it is now. Even if we grow up in a location with a lot of diversity, it isn't easy to imagine just how many cultures, traditions, and people there are in the world.


For children who often hear tales of people back in their family tree, reading more about the era, watching documentaries and movies, history trips, and more can help them build a much deeper connection to who they are. As we grow up, we often begin this search - who are we? Where did we come from? What did our great-great-grandfathers do? These questions can sometimes be answered by looking at history.

Inspiration / Devastation

There have been some historical figures that truly achieved great things, many who did good deals - and let’s not forget that some of the best writers, poets, painters, and architects come from way back when. There is a lot that can be inspirational when it comes to history- however, there are plenty of people and things to learn about that are the opposite. When learning history, there are some stark moments that shaped the world as we know it - and not for the best in many cases.


The more you learn about history, the more you see how things like trains, electricity, and even the TV were developed and by who. But, part of the joy of history is that you can start to implement skills like research. Research is a skill that comes into play continually through life.

History, and the learning of it, are considered to be an academic pursuit that forces people to think, consider, and understand things that we often can’t see. One of the most important skills we can develop from an early age is critical thinking - and history offers children the opportunity to get a start. History is a series of events that are connected, and children can start as far back as they like and slowly trace the progress of technology, the movement of people, and the events that shaped the world.

A child’s learning journey starts early in their lives, and it is something that many will do throughout their life. One of the ways to get a solid start is to consider what type of learning your child will need and enjoy the most. Why not start with this post - Are Playgroups Necessary for Children?
