One of the things I love most about being a mummy is creating magical moments for the children.
I love the look on their faces when something happens that they are not expecting. How many times have you answered a child’s question with the response “it’s magic” ?
I have to make the most of these moments because the big kids are on the brink of not falling for this line much longer.
In all honesty I will be devastated when they don’t believe in Christmas, The Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny anymore, I feel sad just thinking about it.
When I am looking for toys and gift ideas both for my own children and other people’s I do let this desire for magic inspire some of my gift choices.
Have you seen the Little Live Pets collection?
These are aimed at children aged five and over but with supervision I think they are OK for slightly younger children as well.
These live pets come to life and flutter in the palm of your hand. It really is as good as you are going to get without trying to tame you own live butterfly and I personally don’t know any butterfly whisperers!
As the butterfly feeds and gets more energy she will continue to flap and the new series 2 editions even have sparkly wings… because with magic come sparkle right?
These are £9.99 from Character Online – so a perfect little gift idea .
