Wicked Uncle is an excellent website and is so easy to use. When asked if I would like the opportunity to review the overall shopping experience by buying gifts, I jumped at the chance! Buying presents for Children can be a potential minefield, anything to make the experience easier is a bonus in my book!
I’ve worked with Wicked Uncle before, as I accepted their challenge to buy suitable gifts for my “difficult to buy for” teenage son’s. Read my review here.
This time I decided to let my six year old twins choose their own gift. The great thing about Wicked Uncle is that it is a valuable resource for relatives to choose gifts for children they don’t often see and it also appeals to the child themselves.
The gifts available to purchase are divided into age groups, gender and categories.
My girls clicked straight onto age 6 and spent a good while choosing the gift they would like. There are helpful video clips to show the gifts in action.
One of my daughters chose a mini arcade machine. Having older brothers they like to “get in” on the gaming experience! To be honest they dip in and out of anything in the gaming world (they love a bit of Minecraft!) and I’m happy that they’ve not yet become totally obsessed – unlike their brothers!
My other daughter chose Kinetic Sand, which she has had her eye on for a while.
The items promptly arrived well packaged in a cardboard box. The delivery was expected, as the emails from Wicked Uncle were very accurate.
You have the option of choosing gift wrap for your gifts, which is really useful for sending gifts to children you don’t see often. There’s a great range of wrapping options available to suit all tastes.
It’s safe to say that the girls have had great fun playing with their gifts. The arcade game is the perfect size for Barbie! They have created an arcade for Barbie to visit with her friends – re-enacting our recent visit to Blackpool!
Getting children to write thank you cards can sometimes be a bit of a chore, but Wicked Uncle have thought of that and provide a very handy card inside your order for sending on to the person who gifted the items
I really think that Wicked Uncle makes everything easy and provides the whole shopping experience from choosing the gift, presenting the gift and even saying thank you!
