Christmas gift guide 2023 - older children

Wednesday 6 December 2023

The hardest group for me to buy for is the older kids, that don’t want typical toys anymore but aren’t ready for gift cards just yet. Here I have listed a few of my favourite options I’ve come across this year. I hope they inspire you!


Kikkerland wireless earphones

These Kikkerland Wireless earphones are perfect for them to listen to music, podcasts or even messages on. Attached by braided cotton, these earphones are easier to find (and keep track of) than those that are loose.

Compatible via Bluetooth and with a transmission range of 10m – 5 + hours of audio playback and  high sound quality, these lightweight and comfortable ear buds will make you very popular this Christmas!

With a built in remote control and microphone, customisable ear buds in 3 different sizes, 2 pairs of ear hooks and charging cable, these really are the perfect gift idea this year!

Geomag Mechanics Loops & Turns 

Created for the more advanced user, this Geomag Mechanics Gravity Loops & Turns set harnesses the invisible forces of magnetism and gravity through original and surprising means.

The spheres inside the circuit are set in motion by an innovative magnetic cannon that uses the force of attraction of the accelerating magnet.

Developed with more advanced players in mind, the new construction system is based on an innovative "gravity motor": this uses the weight of the Geomag spheres to kickstart the mechanisms and movements of the Geomag Mechanics structures. The motion is provided by the invisible forces of Gravity and Magnetism, without using electricity or batteries. The play experience is based on these fundamental principles of physics. Mechanics Gravity is a STEM product that can truly stimulate curiosity and inspire to learn more about science

Available from Toys R Us currently priced at £18.49
