The toys that children and their parents remember most fondly are the ones that combine two elements together. Sure, it’s nice to just play, but kids will enjoy playing with something that either inspires their creativity or teaches them something even more. The best toys don’t let kids know that they’re educational because, at the heart of it, they’re just plain fun.
With that in mind, our range of toys and games combine a variety of playing, exploring and learning, which makes playtime extra special for all children. You can explore our full range of toys in our huge toy sale.
Unicorn toys are brilliantly popular right now and they come in all shapes and sizes, playing, exploring and learning with unicorn toys has never been so easy.
Since it’s highly unlikely you're ever going to encounter a unicorn in the wild, why not let them grow their own? It’s a simple enough procedure, and the kids will love the anticipation of waiting for it to hatch. As well as this, it encourages them to think of nature as something that grows. They might not see many more unicorns in their life, but they’ll begin to be entranced by nature.
Some of our other favourite options in the unicorn category are the inflatable unicorn stick (perfect for imaginative games), our unicorn magic towel and the unicorn poop slime kit that will encourage them to explore new shapes and designs.
