What Every 8 Year Old Wants for Christmas


Christmas is now in full swing and it's time to start getting your loved ones some fantastic gifts they'll truly appreciate. I have quite a few people to buy for this year and one of the most important is my son Logan. He's getting older now (almost 8) and luckily still believes in Santa, which is really nice, so this time of year is always magical for us. With getting that bit older it's harder to find gifts that he doesn't already have or something that'll tickle his fancy. I'm sure there's a few of us in the same boat so I've put together a lovely gift guide for ideas on what every 8 year old really wants from Santa this Christmas.


Augmented Reality Books
Technology has moved so quickly over the last few years that we now have totally awesomely cool augmented reality books at our disposal. All you need is some sort of tablet device (usually an iPad) for them to work and away you go. Carlton Books have a ton of amazing AR books on offer so do check them out. One of our favourites is the Jurassic World book.

Horror Sound Machine
What kid doesn't love a cheeky little sound machine and they certainly won't be disappointed with the Horror Sound Machine from What2Buy4Kids. It's a snip at £8.99 and would make the perfect stocking filler from Santa. With 16 creepy sound effects such as screams, cackles and spine-chilling music, it's perfect for playing tricks on friends and family but is also great for encouraging children to make up their own spooky stories. Well worth a purchase as it's something totally different but sooo fun!

Micro-scooters
This year most of Logan's friends seem to have gone up to 2 wheeled scooters and it's something he's noticed and fancied for himself. He is a lot bigger and taller now and feels he's too grown up for his 3 wheeled Micro-scooter. We've had Micro-scooters from when he was a tot and really like the brand and build of the machines. Lucky for us, and you, they have tons of scooters in their range to choose from and even though they are a bit more expensive they are well worth the investment.

Cozmo the Robot
Last year it was Anki Overdrive and this year it's Cozmo the cute little Robot. We saw this last year when it was released in the US and couldn't wait to get our hands on it for Logan this year. Cozmo is a charming and intelligent robotic sidekick that explores, remembers and reacts to his environment and to you as a person. Logan is fascinated by artificial intelligence at the moment so this will be right up his street. Cozmo is currently retailing for around £159.99 and you can even get a smart carry case to keep him in.

Fingerlings
This years must have present seems to be Fingerlings. They're baby monkeys who come to life with over 50 animations to let you know how they feel. How cute is that! You can swing them, pet them, hug them, kiss them and rock them to sleep. Everything your kids will probably love. You can even buy a play gym for them. The only trouble is they're like gold dust so if it's on your little ones list this Christmas you best start looking. The retail price for these are £14.99.
