It seems that my little girls do not like Santa very much this year. When we made a move to take a photo with him Miss M clutched at the pram with both hands, kicked her feet out against me and screamed at the top of her lungs “Nooooo Mummy!”, while Miss E looked like she might actually hit Santa with his own bell. So, it looks like last year’s beautiful smiling photo with Santa will not be replicated this year. Lucky for me I know how to get a guaranteed smile from my babies: pick them up some cool Christmas pressies at Shop For Tots – www.shopfortots.com.au.

Shop For Tots has a range of items to suit all budgets, and to make Christmas shopping super easy they have a Christmas Gift Guide section filled with a carefully selected range of quality items for a variety of ages. Today, I really want to wash away the fear of Santa with some impressive gifts for my babes. A great place to start is with these Wheely Bugs that come in a range of different animal patterns including a cow, a ladybug, a mouse and the cutest little bee ever (pictured at #8 below). They make a great gift for toddlers and they can have lots of fun tiring themselves out zooming backwards, forwards, sideways, and round and round! I am also thinking it is about time that they get their first bike and I really like the Tike Balance Bike (pictured at #9 below). Balance bikes are great because they encourage the development of balance, coordination and gross motor skills – couple that with the cool retro look of the Tike Balance Bike and you have one great big hit on your hands this Christmas!
