Mermaids and Unicorns Gift List


Ivy recently turned 4 years old, and her two favourite things at the moment are mermaids and unicorns, so that made her birthday party theme an easy choice!  I also find that because her birthday is so soon after Christmas I need a little extra present inspiration to find things for her, and like to follow a theme, so this year I was on the lookout for all things mermaid and unicorn related!

I didn't have to look far, as I was lucky enough to get this Unicorn Mini Backpack from Dot Com Gift Shop.  It is adorable and she is going to absolutely love filling it with a few toys for days out.  I love that it's not too big, so she won't be able to make it too heavy to carry!  It's got lovely secure straps and a big section at the back as well as a small pouch at the front.  It's adorable and perfect for a little unicorn loving kid.

I was also very lucky to be sent this Unicorn blanket from Contrado.  You can order it in a variety of different sizes, but this is the small one.  It will be perfect for snuggling up on the sofa to watch movies on cold winter afternoons, and for bringing in the car when she falls asleep on long drives.  It's made of really cozy fleece and it just ideal for keeping little ones warm on cold days.

This Unicorn Melamine Set from Dot Com Gift Shop that they sent is also perfect, it's a little bit different (that unicorn is roller skating!) but also bright, colourful and useful!  Ivy is going to love having her very own matching set of unicorn tableware.  I love that multi section tray, I think it will be a great way to encourage her to try different foods at lunch time.

I have also got this fabulous Treasure Island Tuff Tray Mat from Early Years Resources which is going to be perfect for small world mermaid play!  With a variety of mermaid toys, little fish and boats this will keep Ivy busy for hours!  (I'm sure you'll be seeing this mat a lot through the summer when we've got our tuff tray out in the garden every day!)

If you haven't already got some, we love these small world toys from Le Toy Van, there's a Unicorn and a Mermaid and so many other lovely little characters.
