Daisy & Hen 2018 Stocking Filler Edit
As we approach our 4th Christmas with a little person, I have been reflecting on the wonderful traditions we have created.
From putting the tree up on Pageant Day (hands up if you’re from Adelaide!) to the annual Santa photo, Christmas lights & Christmas Carols, watching alllll the Christmas movies while having a Baileys & wrapping the gifts and of course Fruit Mince Tarts & Champagne for Christmas Day breakfast!
These traditions are what makes Christmas so magical for us and what I hope will be the memories Henry will cherish when he is older..
But maybe my fave of all, is waking up to a jam packed stocking on Christmas morning . They bring pure joy and I adore choosing all the fun little things to fill them.
Seeing our stockings hanging near the tree, loaded with little treasures and begging to be opened, It just creates all the ‘Santa has been’ magical feels.
Our stores truly are a haven for stocking fillers and we have curated our best all for under $15!

Here we go...
- We can’t go past our Bath Crayons for the ultimate stocking filler. See what the rave is all about with these vibrant coloured, long lasting crayons.

They help to develop fine motor skills, colour recognition, imaginative and creative play and they are FUN! $9.95 & available here
- Oh let us count the way our Mini Tribe’s can be played with… these will be the most versatile little figurines your little people will own. These themed & compact little boxes are perfect on their own for travel (read best secret weapon to whip out of the handbag on long car trips / when Mama just needs another coffee at brunch) They will also integrate amazingly with any open ended imaginative based toys! Oh and they are dang cute with amazing detail. Choose from the Jungle Tribe or the Flock of Unicorns or Dinosaurs $11.95 & shop them here
- For the plain fun and total nostalgia factor, our Slap bands are a bit of a no brainer. Watch your little person be amazed by the simple concept, which we all were OBSESSED with circa 1989. Try not to use it on your own wrist… I dare you! Dinosaur or Unicorn - $4.95 & find them here

- Encourage creative & unstructured play, and aid fine motor development with the shapeshifting Poly Dough. This stuff is FUN and completely mess free, as the little particles stick to themselves. It never dries out & can be moulded into anything the imagination can conjure up. $7.95 & shop it here
- We love these (non-toxic!!) tattoos for their fun designs & for the peace they will buy you, while the little people figure out how to apply them – thinking at least 15 mins! Enough in the pack for a full sleeve that will last 5 days, and even better they easily come off if you need to attend a fancy event (or school!) $6.95 find them here

A fun change up to a traditional bed time story, these images will spark curiosity & promote creativity through learning and storytelling.

- Glow in the Dark Stick Ons are back. Were you even a child of the 90’s if you didn’t have a bedroom ceiling covered in glow in the dark stars? Well they are back – and we have them in unicorns & dinosaurs because #sotheyear2018. Another tool that you can add to your bedtime arsenal disguised as fun. But seriously, they are super fun. $4.95 & find them here
