This is the latest novel by David Walliams about a 12 year-old boy called Alfie who is scared of the dentist. It’s no wonder when he encounters the new dentist in town - the demon dentist. Like all of his books, this is a funny read, but there are some scary bits so it’s best for children aged 8+.
Stacking cups are a classic pre-school toy - but these are designed to be used in water. The 7 crab-shaped cups can be linked together to make 1 long toy or stacked into a tower - and each one has a sieve in the base for extra fun. Suitable for children aged 1+.
Robofish is one of the must-have toys for Christmas. It’s a motorised fish which comes to life when placed underwater, and the 5 directional swimming action makes it totally realistic. Simply remove from water and dry to deactivate. It’s suitable for age 3+ and is guaranteed to put the fun into bath time.
Budding magicians will love this collection of magic tricks which you can do with your own body. The kit contains prop body parts and an instructional DVD, so that kids can terrify friends and family with floating eyeballs, crazy eyes and multiplying ages. Suitable for age 8+.
Meet the Zelfs. They live in an enchanted garden called Zardenia, and hide away in different ‘fabitats’ in trees, rocks and dark corners.

Suitable for age 5+.
