Wicked Uncle - Review!!

When my girls are invited to birthday parties I worry.....I know what my girls like but I always stress about buying other children presents.....The fantastic toy website Wicked Uncle has taken the worry away....

Wicked Uncle is a fantastic site which sells a whole host of toys for children of all ages...Everything you can think of and more.....From babies to teens and there are even some of the teen presents would be suitable for adults too.

Wicked Uncle isn’t just a toy company. They are essentially a present service for birthdays, Christmasses and other occasions. They are the only toy shop in the world that doesn’t sell primarily to parents. We sell to uncle, aunts, godparents and grandparents. Hence the name – Wicked Uncle.

Everything is categorised by age and sex....They are not trying to gender stereotype though....They do it this way people can find what they are looking for fast. 

I told Becky and Ellie to pick something each and they spent at least an hour browsing the website....I left them a few minutes and they had over £100 worth of toys added to the basket which is harder to do than you think as there is plenty of things for under £5....

We settled on an Awesome Optical Illusions book for Becky, a Magical Fairy Garden for Ellie and a Plasma Ball for us all....

When it came to checking out and ordering there was the option to gift wrap the toys which is a lovely addition....When you order the only invoice you get is via email so there is no awkwardness about the recipient seeing how much you have spent...


The cost of Standard Delivery in the UK is £2.95 irrespective of size and weight....Orders placed by 4pm are dispatched the same day and normally take 2-3 days for to arrive.

I ordered Wednesday lunchtime and our parcel arrived on Friday with our postman....Excuse the PJ's is was half term and we were having a lazy day and yes, Ellie is kissing the box of her Fairy Garden.....She was so excited!


We were very impressed with the service we got from Wicked Uncle.....It is fuss free and there is something for just about anyone.....I will be using the site again....The site actually gave me a few ideas to what to get the girls for their birthday's in a few months....There was things on the site which I haven't seen on other shopping sites....A big thumbs up to Wicked Uncle from us....

We're going on an adventure
I was sent a voucher to use on the Wicked Uncle website.....This is my honest review....All thoughts and opinions are my own!
