On one of my usual daily perusals of Twitter I came across a company called Wicked Uncle- Brilliant Children’s Presents. I noticed that they were looking for bloggers to participate in a challenge- The Wicked Uncle Challenge- and thought I’d have a look into it.
The challenge is to find a Wicked Grown Up to pass a voucher code to (provided by the guys at Wicked Uncle) so they can then spend it on buying gifts for your children on their website. They then report back to me on how they found the website and it’s then up to me to report on how well they did with their choice of gifts. Obviously I opted to take part and passed the details and voucher code straight onto my younger sister, who is yet to have little darlings of her own. This is her experience;
So yeah, at the time I gave her the challenge she was sunning it up in the Dominican and she’d probably had a cocktail or two by this point so it shows just how easy the website is to use. Once she’d ordered the gifts she challenged me to have a look at the site myself and see if I could guess what she’d picked. I couldn’t. All of the gifts on the site are put into categories of gender and age range which makes it so easy to pick something for the child you’re shopping for. Ok, well maybe it doesn’t as there’s so much to choose from, but you could do an ‘eeny meeny’ type riddle or rhyme to help you finally decide I guess!
What did she choose? Well we obviously had to wait for the Wicked Auntie to get back from her jolly holidays to find out but when she returned we weren’t disappointed!
Violet’s was gift wrapped which made it even more exciting for her- what child doesn’t love tearing paper off presents- or for that matter what adult doesn’t like to?! It was opened pretty quickly to reveal the Baking Set! Perfect! I’ve recently started baking myself and Violet loves to help out. It has a whisk, rolling pin, cookie cutters and a book of recipes and it even comes with the cutest little apron for her to wear! Wicked Auntie did good on this one so I sent her a text to come over and help us test it out 🙂
Billy’s wasn’t gift wrapped- he’s only 6 month and I don’t think he was too bothered by it 😉 He got a Monkey! Marvin the Monkey to be precise. I should have known really as our Nicola is pretty obsessed with them herself. The big grin on his face when we showed it to him said it all. It was quickly out of the box and Marvin joined Billy in his jumperoo. Marvin comes with a little battery pack which slots inside of his back and it plays music. There’s a little volume button and four different buttons to play different types of music to suit what your child is doing like playing or sleeping. Sayings as Billy was due his nap I decided to give the sleep music a go. As you can see by the photo’s below it worked a treat and didn’t take him long to drift off to sleep whilst giving Marvin a snuggle. He now takes Marvin everywhere he goes and if you attempt to take it off him you’ll have a screaming baby to deal with- just don’t take it away!
Well done Wicked Auntie, you can now have him overnight- just pick a day yeah?! 😉
So there you have it. The Wicked Uncle Challenge was accepted and The Wicked Auntie absolutely nailed it with utter success! I have a feeling she’ll now be using the Wicked Uncle website for the kids presents on all occasions- I’m happy with that 🙂
