Adding no less than three new humans to my Uncle roster this year I created this gift list to feed their minds and save yours. From augmented reality games to fun travel subscriptions and unicorn humidifiers there truly is something for kids of all ages on this list with no big branded items in sight.
1) Beasts of Balance [Sensible Object] – Ages 7+
Visually stunning and fun to play, Beasts of Balance is part Jenga and park Pokémon GO. Multiple players get to play at once and take turns building balancing towers. Playing takes skill, strategy and creation but seeing the artefacts morph is fun. Take care… the world ends when the tower falls!

2) Clip 2 [JBL] – Ages Big Kids
Everyone needs a tough speaker to play music from or take on holiday – this puppy is waterproof and can take a beating. Perfect for any kids – big or small. The Clip 2 lasts for eight hours, comes in a range of colours and can also be used as a speakerphone when your hands are full.
