Childrens Birthday Gift Guide

This weekend was my little ladies 4th Birthday, and to celebrate we decided to put together a Children's Birthday Gift Guide to share some of the great Birthday Gifts that are out there this year!
Walkright Girls Black Light Up Shoe with Flowers

What girl doesn't love shoes? These gorgeous girls shoes are perfect for a party or even for school! They have pink flower embroidery at the front along with gem detailing, a velcro strap fastening and motion detect flashing lights in the heel. They are also durable and easy to clean. Bethany loves that when she walks in them they flash.
These fab shoes are available from Shoe Zone for £14.99 
Rays Of Sunshine Tote Bag
These cotton Tote Bags are fab for little people to carry their toys and bits and bobs about. All bags feature the Rays of Sunshine sun set in various colours.
A little bit about Ray Of Sunshine Charity: Rays of Sunshine was formed in 2003 to help children who are living with serious or life-limiting illnesses between the ages of 3-18, across the United Kingdom. It does this by granting these children's wishes however impossible the wish may seem, and with your help and support together they can turn wishes into happy memories.
20% of all proceeds go directly towards the Rays of Sunshine charity.
Available from Clintons for £8.00
Love 2 Read Personalised Book
This fantastic personalised memory book is a great gift to remind your little person what they got up to at a certain age, we love this and will be doing one each year now for Bethany, its a great keepsake.

The Love 2 Read website is incredibly easy to use and each book you create has a template so all you have to do is add your 9 pictures and words. 

Bethany loves her book.
Available from Love 2 Read.
OXO Tot 4 Piece Feeding Set
This feeding set from OXO Tot is great for younger children, it includes a plate, bowl, fork and spoon, all boasting a contemporary, colourful design.
The fab plate has a ring around the edge to help little ones guide food on to their spoon or fork, and minimise spillages. The plate has a great non-slip base and the ring can be removed for easy cleaning. 
The small bowl is ideal for meal time, snacking, or storing food in, I like to use if for when I make too much food to store for the next day for Bethany, it has a great snap on lid to keep it fresh.
Both the fork and spoon have great size handles and soft non-slip grips. A flat area on the handle prevents the fork and spoon from rolling off the table or highchair.
Available from John Lewis for £16.00
Sofia the First Interactive Puzzle
The Sofia the First Princess Interactive Quiz Puzzle features electronic puzzles that help to develop children’s manipulation, observation and logical association skills. Children must put the puzzle pieces together to make up the picture in the centre, and the remaining pieces around the sides of the jigsaw feature a question and two answers.
Bethany loved putting the pieces together and following the picture on the box, the questions are on the tiles, so for example the picture is 3 books and the answer options are 1 or 3, put the electronic pen on the dot next to 3 and the pen will make a sound to let your child know they are correct.
The games consists of 35 maxi puzzle pieces and measures 64x44cm when complete.
Available from Smyths Toys for RRP £9.99
Lalaloopsy Tinies Castle & Tinies
This fantastic fun castle from Lalaloopsy is from their Tinies range. The Lalaloopsy Tinies have their very own playhouse. Each one designed specifically to match the characters personality and flair. Loaded with Lalaloopsy style, each Tinies House is the perfect size for all your favourite Lalaloopsy Tinies. Castle Includes 2 dolls, pony, carriage, pillow and fan.Adorable castle is the perfect size for your Lalaloopsy Tinies! Castle works as a carrying case too!
Bethany does love to carry this about with her, we take it to Nannies house regularly when we visit. I think this would also be great if you were going on holiday, as its small and compact so doesn't take up much space for travel but is still tons of fun.
Also available are extra Tinie characters for the Tinies castle.
