With Christmas right around the corner, it’s time for you to get down to shopping for the tots! Here are some gift ideas we’ve handpicked for this year.

Kipling Back To School Series

Kick off the new school year with KIPLING’s FAST backpack ($115) and SEOUL UP backpack ($245) that comes in a beautiful pink shade or playful print. The SEOUL UP is both functional and lightweight, making it a great back-to-school buddy. Not to be missed in KIPLING’s back-to-school series are the accessories that comes in the same prints so your child can get them in a set to match!

LEGO BOOST

This supercharged 5-in-1 building and coding set that empowers children to bring their LEGO creations to life by adding movement, sound and personality has finally made its debut in Singapore! Crowned as the winner of Toy Award at the 2017 Nuremberg International Toy Fair, LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox is no doubt the must-have toy this season. 

Designed for children ages 7 and older, LEGO BOOST brings the LEGO building experience to the next level by turning LEGO creations into programmable robots, which makes play extra fun in an amazing new way! Much like building with LEGO bricks, children build behaviours and actions by linking digital coding blocks in an easy-to-understand horizontal layout within the app to give children the basic building and coding skills needed to express their creativity by personalising whatever they build. The LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox retails for $249.90 at Toys ‘R’ Us and LEGO certified stores.
