Wicked Uncle issues Top Ten list

Published on: 13th October 2023

With its traditionally quirky approach, online specialist Wicked Uncle has revealed its Top Ten Toys for Christmas 2023.

Wicked Uncle offers ‘brilliant children’s presents’ and ‘award winning service’. The company’s Michael O’Shea provided Toy World with its latest list of top toy recommendations, and told us: “Our top choices are a bit different from the big guys, reflecting our slightly quirkier approach and the type of lines we stock. As an online retailer, our customers don’t get the visual impact of seeing the items in store, but we do get the chance to explain them on our website.”

Mike added: “We’ve had fun putting the list together, and I am mega enthused that we are going to have a great season with this lot.”

The top ten is as follows:

1. Fire Breathing Dinosaur Shooter – £12.95 – Funtime
2. Fanzone Electronic Football Quiz Game – £29.95 – Golden Bear
3. Minions Sounds Mug –  – £16.95 – Fizz Creations
4. Cat-Opoly  – £24.95 –  Cheatwell Games
5. UFO Quad Copter –  £29.95 – Funtime
6. Fairytales Crossbody Bag – £18.95 – Eat, Sleep, Doodle
7. Unicorn Blanket – £16.95 – Wonderbox
8. Spy Wrist Talkies – £24.95 – Wind Designs
9. Through Others Eyes –  £24.95 – Brainstorm
10. Bracelet Activity Tower  £34.95 – Make It Real

“There’s lots of really fun stuff this year and something for everyone,” continued Mike. “The Minions Sounds Mug will give guaranteed giggles, and Cat-Opoly represents the classic game made ‘purrfect ‘. The impressive UFO Quad Copter is controlled with your hand, and Brainstorm’s Through Others Eyes Optical Science Kit has 22 interchangeable lenses that allow kids to see in more than 17 different ways – wide angle, coloured, polarised, etc. Make It Real’s Bracelet Activity Tower has a whopping 1600 pieces to create enough bracelets to satisfy anyone.”
The Wicked Uncle team scours the world to source a really useful selection of fun, unusual and different presents for children, and tests every item before it goes on its website. The company can giftwrap presents and send them direct to the recipient with a handwritten birthday or Xmas card.

The Wicked Uncle website can be found here, and there’s a US website too, here.
