Nimble Fingers Toy Shop is celebrating their 50th Golden Christmas this weekend!
As part of the festivities, Nimble Fingers is hosting a Golden Christmas Countdown this Saturday 1st December from 1-3pm with the help of some of familiar Christmas faces, including Rudolf, Fernstrool the Elf, and The Sugar Plum Fairy. There will be Christmas tales, balloon making, face painting, and festive treats for the kids, while parents will also get some festive indulgences and be provided with the very best gifting advice available.
The Nimble team want to help parents through this crazy time, and so have put together an Alternative Top Ten Gift Guide. This will include a mixture of the best gifts for the little kids in all of us. Here is Nimble Fingers gift guide for this Christmas:

Didicar is a triumph of fun over physics and is purely KID powered. Sitting on the didicar all that is required to get moving is to move the steering wheel from left to right and she moves forward. Flip the wheel 180° and it goes backwards. The two driving wheels find pushing power against one another and as the wheel is turned they drive each other forward (or backward). Didicar is simple to operate and no batteries required! No pedals, motors or other fuels or greasy chains or complicated gears. Just add kid’s (Please note that adult assembly is required). Suitable for ages 3 to 30!

Designed for children ages 1 - 5, the Strider™ PREbike is lightweight, easy to control and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. Most importantly, the Strider teaches your child balance, coordination, and develops confidence and is steady, stable and safe. At the first feeling of instability, your child will instinctively place his feet securely on the ground. So there are no "tricycle tip-overs" or "training-wheel wobbles" that stir-up a fear, hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding.
