Top 10 gift ideas for the kid who has everything

Trying to find the perfect gift for a kid who has everything can be a challenge. There’s so much great stuff out there to choose from and the last thing you want to do is double up on what someone else has bought! To help, The Cats at Banjo HQ have identified their top 10 gift ideas for the lucky 5 to 8 year old in your life:

1. For the green-fingered

Give a little sunshine with this grow-it-yourself sunflower kit. Easy to do, satisfying to watch and a great introduction to gardening!

See the world with Banjo! Why not treat them to a gift subscription from Banjo Robinson? Just choose a 3 or 10-letter gift and the recipient will begin their magical journey with the world’s only globe-trotting, letter-writing magical cat! With personalised letters and heaps of other goodies sent by post to them every month, you can’t go wrong! With letters that arrive twice a month, it’s the gift that keeps on giving…


4. For lively creatures   

Almost nothing beats wearing a huge, bouncy animal tail. These beautifully-made pieces are as at home at parties and festivals as they are for wandering around the house in. Snap up a crocodile, fox or dinosaur for the little ones- and how about a snaffling a crazy cat tail for yourself while you’re there? Please note they also do very fluffy ears


5. For junior bakers   

Baking Kit – Great gear for the little chef in your life- this fab set comes with all the tools they’ll need and a nice apron too!


6.   For new directors

Animation Studio – This brilliant kit provides everything a kid needs to make their first stop motion animations. Great for ages 7+.


7.  For young astronomers

National Geographic 3D Moon Lamp – This gorgeous lamp will bring a warm glow to any bedroom. It has two brightness settings and is USB chargeable.


 8. For creative designers     

These fabric pens go down a treat with kids of all ages. Don’t forget to throw in a white t-shirt or two as well so they can get right to work. There’s nothing cooler than hitting the playground wearing one of your own designs…


9.    For mini Attenboroughs

Wildlife Detective Kit – A fun-packed set for all the little explorers out there which includes experiment ideas, equipment and heaps of information to get them started.


10.     For budding photographers

It’s not cheap, but the Kidizoom Camera is a great investment. Almost unbreakable in its construction, it encourages kids to take photos, make films and use cool effects (and it stops them asking you for your phone!). A parent at Banjo HQ got this for her 5-year old and she still plays with it four years later.
