We were again delighted to see some of the gifts
we sent to the Toy Show team on RTE's Late Late Toy Show with Ryan Tubridy this year.
Ryan had earlier in the day been quoted as saying that this year's focus for the show would be on Christmas presents for kids
below the €70 price level and he certainly delivered on that promise. Many of the exciting gifts were indeed within a more affordable price range and among them were some of pressieport.ie favourites.
The classic Ladybird collection made an appearance on the show with our Ladybird Activity Kits
for children. Pressieport.ie offers a choice of 3 of these kits from the age-old range.
We have the 'Make Your Own Friendship Bracelets'
kit which is a favourite particularly with girls, although it is equally suitable for boys too. The activity kit contains all that you need to make lovely and unique friendship bracelets. The kit is an entertaining gift for children and offers a retro feel and a quick trip for many parents and grandparents.
The 'Ladybird Activity Kit for Children'
is aimed at both young boys and girls. The gift box, a tin decorated with Ladybird's classic images, contains instructions and all the material you need to make a wiggly snake. Again, a lovely gift for children which allows them to play together and learn to make arts and crafts the good old fashioned way.
The final one is possibly aimed more towards young boys - 'Tricks and Magic'
Ladybird kit is exactly what it says. A lovely present for a child with instructions on how to perform five magic tricks together with tips and practice hints for the young magician.
All of these lovely Christmas presents are available from Pressieport for a very affordable
price. Why break the bank this Christmas when they can probably have more fun and learn more from these ideal childrens' gifts.
Another great educational and and practical gift for children, as seen on the Late Late Toy Show this year was the 'Paint Your Own Birdhouse'
This gift is a solid wooden birdhouse which comes complete with paints and paint brush. Children can remove the wooden roof and paint the house and roof separately with the included paint kit. Once completed, the birdhouse can be hung up outside for birds to take shelter from our increasingly cold winters. The fact that the roof can be removed means that the birdhouse can be cleaned easily when necessary. Again a lovely gift which is not only educational but also will give children hours of fun preparing it and even more hours watching it carefully to see if any birds take shelter and make a home in it.
Ryan also seemed to take a big shine to dinosaur
themed gifts. Pressieport have some very cheap and cheerful gifts in that range too with the amazing Triassic Triops Kit
, the Dig and Discover Dinosaur Egg
and the Dig and Discover Dinosaur Nest
. Each of these is educational and will children hours of fun on Christmas day.
The Triassic Triops let children hatch and grow Triops - these creatures are identical to their prehistoric kin from the prehistoric age. Watch them grow, feed them and see how they live right in front of your eyes. They really are alive!
If your little one is a budding archeologist, then the Dig and Discover gifts could be ideal. Each of these gifts allow the children to literally dig and discover dinosaur eggs and nests just like a real archeologist would. They even come with their own equipment - picks, brushes and a little wooden stand to show off your discovery.
Once again, The Late Late Toy Show was an amazing event in itself. Every year, more and more people seem to be watching it and with the weather being so cold and wet out there, what else would you be doing on a Friday night?!
