Have you got little ones to buy stocking fillers for but have no idea where to begin? Or perhaps you’re still struggling to fill those pesky pockets or drawers of a homemade advent calendar? Well don’t worry – our Toy Shop is fully stocked and we’re always happy to help!
With Christmas now only 5 weeks away, we thought it might be helpful to show you some of our favourite products and ranges for kids that are small enough in size and price tag to suit either purpose – some of which would even be suitable for more grown up kids! These are all available in the shop and online and remember that you can order online and collect from the shop or have it delivered to your door, delivery is free on all orders over £20.00 – and we can even do the wrapping for you, for free.
So here we have it, some of our favourite stocking fillers, in no particular order...
1. Clockwork Soldier Mini Kits
These award winning craft kits are popular with kids and parents alike. They require no glue, or scissors (phew) and are made purely from paper.
This Dino Puppet Kit for example is made from one piece of recycled card and includes everything you need to create a dino finger puppet and board game, even the dice! And at only £3.50 it's fantastic value. See the full Clockwork Soldier Range
2. Galt Reusable Sticker Book
These sticker books are an absolute must for younger children and are especially useful for keeping them occupied on a rainy day! Or when travelling (not that anyone is doing very much of that at the moment...)
Create fun scenes with over 150 reusable stickers and 8 different backgrounds. Young children will enjoy bringing the scenes to life with the colourful stickers, over and over again! Endless hours of fun guaranteed. Shown here in farm – but also available in maps, animals and dinosaurs.
These are a gift that’s really one for the grown ups – but kids will love them too – these little tins of seeds are new to us at the Square Peg, but we love them already. They've been put together to help more people grow bee and butterfly-friendly wildflowers in their own gardens and outdoor spaces. And it’s a fuss free method of planting, simply scatter the seed balls on the surface, no need to dig!
This butterfly mix contains a mix of native wildflowers that the butterflies love – but we also have collections for bees and birds. Sew them in the spring and enjoy the results! Shop the collection here
Who would have thought that hand sanitisers would be so trendy? Or an appropriate stocking filler suggestion? Well not us, but we’re going with it! Our mini hand sanitisers have been selling so well since we reopened and we predict that there’s going to be a lot of these making their way into stockings and advent calendars this year!
These pocket sized spray sanitisers come in lots of designs - so you're sure to find one to suit - and the added bonus is that they come in a variety of scents too! Shop our current sanitiser selection here
5. Kid’s Stationery
Often a category overlooked but we find that you can’t go wrong with pens, pencils and notebooks – especially if they’ve got a bit of a novelty to them, like these amazing erasable pens from Legami, shown here in koala but also available in bear and panda designs. Each has a different colour of heat sensitive gel ink that can easily be erased if mistakes are made using the tip of the pen. And at only £1.95 each, they're ideal as a wee extra.
