Santa on his sleigh with toys
 

To help you prepare for Christmas we’ve listed ten popular gifts for kids for this year, from a caterpillar that helps teach coding to a 3 year old to a LEGO volcano for kids aged seven upwards.

Compare prices from each retailer to make sure you’re getting the best deal and leave more money for mince pies! And remember, kids won’t value your gifts based on price, so don’t feel obliged to opt for the most expensive gifts on the list!

1. Fisher Price Code-a-Pillar, ages 3-6

 

Fisher Price Code A Pillar Code-A-Pillar features nine easy-to-connect segments that pre-schoolers can arrange and rearrange to tell the toy how to move, wiggle, dance or even wait for a couple seconds before moving again. Kids can configure the segments in such a way that the Code-A-Pillar can reach targets they set up throughout the room. There’s even a motorised head segment with lights, sounds and blinking eyes!
