Best Stocking Fillers for Under £10
Kids Stuff Crazy Bubble Bath and Foaming Soap
From £1.99 at Superdrug
Make Christmas wash time fun this year with these beauties from Kids Stuff Crazy. These bubble baths and foaming soaps make the perfect gift for your children or grandchildren, as well as an exciting and inexpensive activity for the whole family.
We think this magical sparkling bubble bath will keep kids entertained for hours as it turns the water into a whirlpool of glitter to get clean in. Kids can let their imaginations run wild as if they were a mermaid on an adventure in a glittery lagoon or playing in a sparkly snowstorm.
Also we love the skin friendly foaming soap from this range, it is a gentle pH balanced, paraben free formula that wonderfully cleans and moisturises your little one’s skin. It comes in some fab colours like blue, pink and purple and the kids really enjoyed bouncing and creating different shapes out of the mouldable soap and best of all they are all affordably priced.
Build Your Own Ankylosaurus
£9.99 From Build Your Own Kits
If your little one likes to build things, then this is the perfect gift for them. Build your Own Kits have brought a New Ankylosaurus build out which will help kids step back in time and explore a prehistoric world, they can discover and learn about the Ankylosaurus Dinosaur.
Build your Own Kits are a leading designer of sustainably made STEM toys, making these a fab eco-friendly buy for your kids. When you open the box, you will find shapes that you just pop out of cardboard and paper that you slot together to build your dinosaur with. This kit has 35 press out pieces, are aimed at kids over 8 years old and it’s estimated that they will take around 40 minutes to build. It also comes with a press-out Ankylosaurus Fact Stand for you to find out more about this famously armoured dinosaur and something that impressed the kids was the pull tab that makes the tail move.
From our experience we have to say the cardboard is good quality and makes for a sturdy creation. It can be a bit fiddly not going to lie, so grownups might need to lend a hand, but the 40 minutes is totally based you and how quickly you manage to go, we did take a longer than this, but really enjoyed it from start to finish.
As parents we loved that there is no mess for us to clear up after as there is no use of glue needed and we were impressed with how big our T-Rex turned out to be once built, an impressive 38cm! Another cool feature was how when you pull the tab it creates a roaring action move in like a snapping action. We think this build offers the perfect family time activity, educational and plastic free option for Christmas that is great value for money.
EUGY 3D Reindeer
£8.99 From Amazon
Kids are going to love building this Eugy 3D Reindeer Model from Brainstorm Toys. This 3D model from EUGY is an awesome creative model building gift for any child this Christmas. You get everything you need to build your figure in the box including easy to follow instructions and its take around half an hour to build, with some kids needing a bit of grown-up help.
All you need to do is pop out all the pieces from the thick card and push them through the middle holder. Our Reindeer had a black bead for its eye and the card tells you exactly what stage to add it and you even get a tube of non-toxic glue to keep your model from falling apart after its built.
What we love about these kids build toy is that’s it’s all made from environmentally friendly, biodegradable card and even printed with natural eco-friendly ink. There are loads of different characters and animals in the EUGY range that you can make which makes it’s a truly unique craft collectable for kids to enjoy.

Made from silicone this flying disc is soft, flexible, foldable and it won’t break a window or TV screen if the kids play with it indoors. Another added bonus of it being so soft is that it doesn’t hurt your hands when you are throwing and catching it.
It surprised us just how awesome something so flexible is in the air, as it can reach up to 130ft. It glides so well in the air that both kids and adults found it easy to play with.
This Waboba Wingman Disc is perfectly sized to carry in your pocket, or bag so it great to take with the family to beach, park, sleepovers or even holidays and we just love the Limited Edition Christmas jumper design on it, although you can get these discs in all fab designs we love how this one can bring a festive vibe to your present giving this year.

This is Kitty Mello, who belongs to Marsha Mello and Mini Mello and loves to be groomed and pampered. Kitty Mello comes with a brush which when you stroke along the top of her head you can see her eyes close, which is so cute.
The kids loved the pastel rainbow hair and tail, but by far the most amazing feature that the kids loved were her pretty glitter eyes they really stand out.

£8 From Funko Europe
We have been fans of Marvel Battleworld Battle Balls from Funko Games for a long time now, so it’s a no brainer for us to suggest a series 3 ball as stocking filler gift.

Each card has a main number in the middle and either plus or minus 1,2 or 3 on the corners. Players go on a race to get rid of all their cards first by working out the possible answers to the sum and placing a card from their hand that matches it.

£8.99 From Amazon
Kids can conjure up a cute new breed of Magic Mixies this Christmas with these mini single Magic Mixies Mystery Collectors Cauldron.
First, you rub the gem on your Cauldron and say the magic words ‘Magicus Mixus’ to find out if you have mixed up a Common, Rare, Ultra-Rare or Limited Edition Mixling, before you open the cauldron to reveal who you have inside.
As well as the mixling figure you get two other accessories and a collectors guide so you can keep track of which ones you still need. Kids can enjoy finding either a magnetic wand that activates the Enchanters, who charms you with their enchanting eyes. Morphers or Fliers’ Gem. Or a pipette wand that unleashes the Vanishers power. Or a glow in the dark wand.
Each mixling has special magical powers that are activated with the wands and excitingly there is a limited edition mixling, called Light Up Zarla, whose gem lights up and changes colour to reveal her magic.
With over 40 little magic toy mixlings to mic up and collect in series one, we love how this pocket money toy collection will be something we can help our little one add to next year without the worry of its breaking the bank.
