This is my favourite gift in this guide- less screen time for kids but need to keep them entertained well the Yoto player is for you. The Yoto player is a speaker with an inbuilt nightlight and screen which uses cards to play you’re little ones favourite stories. There’s a world of popular stories alongside things like meditation and also several audios you can listen to for free.
The Yoto player is set by parental controls so you have full control but the little ones can use the buttons to play, skip chapters and stop the Yoto Player. They can also press twice to access Yoto Radio! Your little ones will feel so grown up with their own speaker system and even better it gets them away from the dreaded screens that they seem to become so obsessed with.
Other great features are that you can change the colour of the night light, personalise cards from home recordings so if granny wants to read a story you can have it recorded. You can also set bedtime and wake ups so kids learn routines too.
The girls are going to love it and will be a sharing present for them both. You can buy yours from here.

Reindeer feeding Set-
What is The Reindeer Feeder? After centuries of doing their work, ‘The Reindeer Feeders’ are letting humans know who they are. They have probably been in your home for years, quietly working away. This special breed of creatures known in the North Pole as ‘Shrumann’ (shrunken humans) have the important job of overseeing all the Christmas preparations in your home and then on Christmas Eve, humans will place the carrots for the reindeer into the feeding sack ready for your Reindeer Feeder to pop up the chimney when Santa arrives. The storybook tells readers the heartwarming story of how one Shrumann learned all about his very important job. Make sure to put your official sticker in your window so Santa knows on Christmas Eve there is help on hand. We love this idea and the girls love anything Santa related so this year we are going to be part of Santa’s team! You can be too click here.
