Buy Cool Children’s Gifts with Wicked Uncle & VLOG Gift Reveal

July 23, 2016


Like me, I bet many of you have already heard about Wicked Uncle. It’s a brand that’s currently buzzing all over social media because we parenting bloggers just can’t get enough of it.


Wicked Uncle makes buying children’s gifts a doddle for everyone. Whether you are a seasoned pro or gift buying newbie, a couple of clicks on their website will reveal plenty of ‘WOW’ factor stuff. You won’t easily find these cool quirky gifts on a typical shopping trip out.




Why is Wicked Uncle so darn Wicked?

Wicked Uncle is jam packed full of brilliant children’s gift. With not a dud in sight, you really can’t go wrong. Their oh-so-fabulous website is easy to use and helps you to find thoughtful gifts that are tailored around a little ones interests. Do you have an adventurer or perhaps a creative to buy for? No problem! This is how you can search for a gift for them.


Click onto the Wicked Uncle website and you will see lots of ways to search. You can filter by gender, age, category, new and popular, or a combination of these options. Or… like me you can click ‘all’ and spend hours searching through all the lovely gifts, because there really are so many!


Now I can see you are itching to go and check it out, but before you do, this is how we got on with our #Wicked Uncle Challenge.



#Wicked Uncle Challenge

We were given a voucher by Wicked Uncle to then pass on to someone without children or buying skills. We chose Uncle Button! *He does have great gift buying skills, but no children, so this put him at a great disadvantage.

Uncle Button was asked to use Wicked Uncle to buy a cool gift for Little Button. This was all kept top secret. Little Button didn’t have to wait for long, 2 days later a big box arrived.



We have a Winner

Yay! As you can see Little Button was thrilled with her presents. I love how Uncle Button chose 2 science based, hands on gifts, both perfect for an inquisitive mind.



My First Microscope – £19.95

We had wanted to get our hands on a microscope for some time, but just hadn’t come across them in the shops. This one is perfect for little fingers and investigative type of play. Because it comes in one piece, it is ready to use straight from the box. It did require 3 AAA batteries for the light to work, but it can be used just as well without it if you don’t have any to hand.

Live Butterfly Garden – £15.95

I hadn’t realised it was possible to buy this. What a treat! The Live Butterfly Garden is a special habitat where you can watch your caterpillars turn from cocoons into beautiful butterflies. The set comes with a voucher that you can redeem for 5 live caterpillars. These come in a little cup house with all the food they need for the process of turning into a cocoon. You then transfer them into the habitat and wait for the magic to happen.

Final Thoughts  

The proof is in the pudding… I am definitely going to think twice about trudging round the shops for a day looking for children’s gifts. Wicked Uncle has done all the hard work and created a brilliant collection ready for the picking. We also love the added extra of being able to send a gift fully gift wrapped directly to the recipient together with a hand written card.


Our final score: 10/10 (Wicked!)

    I have been hearing lots about Wicked Uncle recently, I definitely need to check them out when my niece’s birthday comes around! I adore the video, I think I was a little over invested actually as it froze just when Little Button (who is SUPER cute!!) was opening the microscope and I was very impatient to find out what it was, haha. These are brilliant ideas for gifts – the microscope looks a lot simpler than some I have seen. #DreamTeam

  13. Aww this is the cutest vlog!! I loved it and what amazing gifts – lucky Little Button 🙂 I love the idea of Wicked Uncle, I know a few in our family who need this service hehe. Thanks for hosting #dreamteam together xx

    • Annette, 3 Little Buttons says:

      Thanks so much! The gifts are really cool and the site is definitely going to be my go-to site for children’s gifts from now on. I have already spotted a load of things for birthday prezzies. xx

  14. wicked does in fact sound… wicked! Even though I have children and am pretty good at buying presents I still do run out of ideas so I think this would be perfect!

    Ooh, I have seen a few people mention Wicked Uncle now, and having taken a peak I will definitely be getting Freddie something from there for his 1st Birthday. They have such a great range, and some lovely more ‘traditional’ toys 🙂
