*WIN* Christmas Book and Toy Bundle from Quarto Kids

I know, I said Christmas, I can’t quite believe it myself either, but for any of you that like to plan ahead and get started on gifts early, read on. Why not try your luck in this competition and add three gifts to your Christmas stash?

I absolutely LOVE the collections that Quarto Kids put out for Christmas and this year is no exception. There are some brilliant titles available this year, both books and gifts.

Last Christmas, for the first time I did a Christmas Book Advent Calendar. I so wish I had started this years ago. The children really enjoyed it. Just like an advent calendar, they unwrapped one book per day and we read that as the bedtime story. It was lovely to discover new Christmas books, as well as being a great way to re-visit our Christmas favourites. Have you done this before?

So, up for grabs today are the following:

The Dinosaur Awards

Celebrate the prehistoric past with 50 dynamic dinosaurs. Readers can learn all about the dinosaurs’ features, diet and habits as well as discover what makes each one so prize-worthy – and there are 10 comic strips to enjoy, too. With easy-to-understand, humorous text by Barbara Taylor and joyful illustrations from cartoonist Stephen Collins, this is the perfect book for dinosaur-loving kids everywhere. There are pronunciation guides, time periods, and vital statistics for each dinosaur, as well as an index to peruse. This is the perfect gift for your little palaeontologist.

Step into the Nutcracker

It was Christmas Eve in Marie’s house. Her parents were having a party and she and her brother, Fritz, were wondering what wonderful present their Godfather would give them this year… This exquisite layered board book combines a simple narrative with die-cut holes and original illustrations to create a captivating storytelling experience.

Step inside the classic story of The Nutcracker. With gentle, engaging text, beautiful illustrations, die cut and layered pages, all of which encourage the reader to interact with the book and turn each page to delight in the increasingly expansive spreads.

Squishy Human Body

These are fun, engaging science kits for curious minds!

Take the journey of a lifetime and enter the world of the human body, complete with organs, muscles and bones.

Contents: 12 bones, 9 squishy organs, organ-iser poster, plastic tweezers, plastic forceps, human body model & stand, 24-page book, instruction sheet. Great for younger curious children, but also for older children to help with things like biology revision for exams! These kits really bring things to life.

  1. I start shopping for Christmas in the January sales as otherwise I just cant manage to get presents for everyone as it’s all just so expensive isn’t it.

  2. I start my Christmas shopping in October .. I like to avoid the busy period , and finish it before the weather deteriorates .

  3. I’m always one of those that leave it until last minute but have the intentions of getting it done and dusted in November haha

  4. Funnily enough, I am starting with a couple of attractive online offers to put away this weekend. I usually start about now.

  5. i start just after chritmas iknow what people like and i but thoughful gifts whn i see them. i also upcyle and craft all year around making gifts.

  6. I dont usually start until December, in case ideas change. I might start a little earlier this year, so things can get posted out much earlier

  7. I’ve normally started some but this year I’ve got nothing yet, to be honest I’ve no idea where to start with it all.

  8. I would like to say I’m ultra organised and start in January, but actually if truth be known I usually start in the middle of December!

  9. I normally start shopping for Christmas over summer. I’m late this year as distracted by our daughter’s wedding. So far I’ve only bought 2 gifts.

  10. I start shopping in September for Christmas once the children are back at school.
    Thankyou very much for the chance to enter
    Good luck everyone

  11. I never actually stop! I have Christmas in the back of my mind all year round and just pick things up as I see them

  12. December! I’m such a last minute person who will rush out and do the mad Christmas dash. Every year I say I’ll be more prepared though!

  13. I usually start at the beginning of December or later! I’m not really too concerned about it, it’s only one day!!

  14. I make notes on my phone trhoughout the year of ideas then usually start in November I dont go crazy so it’s just to split cost over a couple of wages

  15. It’s such a huge expense that I try to start as early as possible. Once the school uniforms have been bought I then move on to Christmas.

  16. I never stop. If I see something at anytime and think it will be a good christmas gift then I will buy it and store it away

  17. I usually start in September but with only going out when I need to due to covid I think it will mostly be Amazon this yearagain!

  18. I may buy the odd thing earlier but the majority of my Christmas shopping is done from around the end of the first week in December. The trouble is then that every year I wish I had started buying earlier.

  19. I have to start really early as two of my children have December birthdays, so it’s even more expensive for me and I have to try and spread the cost over the whole year!

  20. I used to be a Christmas Eve kind of shopper but since having children I’ve been more organised (slightly ?)
