I thought I’d share with you what we’ve got for Connors stocking this year; you’ll have to bear with me on the photo front – they’re not great but in my defense I do live in Scotland and since it’s December it’s basically dark all day long!
I’ll try and remember where I got everything from & how much it was and where possible I’ll put a link in. So here we go!
This little Paw Patrol Marshall bath set was from B&M and I’m now thinking it might be slightly too big to fit in Connors stocking so it might just get wrapped with the rest of his stuff. I can’t find it on the B&M website but it’s on Amazon here.
Connor has recently decided that he’s a Hulk fan – we have no clue where that came from as he’s never seen the Avengers! I saw this little snack pot set in Home Bargains and thought it would be a cute stocking filler. It’s got a drinking cup, bowl & plate which also doubles as a lid. I’ve seen it online in other characters as well & got Iron Man for one of Connors’ friends!
We love Orchard Toys in our house so when I saw they did Mini Games I thought they would be the perfect stocking filler. This one was £4.04 from Amazon & I think Connor will love it!
I picked these up in Home Bargains for £1.69 each! I thought they’d help Connor with his letters and numbers, they’re the perfect size to slip into a stocking.
Connor has a couple of Thomas and Friends Take-n-Play sets & he’s forever losing the engines so when I saw this in Smyths I picked it up. It’s currently out of stock online but they had loads in my local store and they were cheaper in there too (£3!). Smyths were also offering a buy 1 get 1 half price on all the thomas engines, so it worked out even cheaper – obviously I bought quite a few but they won’t all fit in his stocking!
I picked these up in the pound shop for the bargain price of – you guessed it – £1 each! I’ve also got David Batman & Hulk socks for his stocking so that the boys can match, Connor loves getting the same as his Daddy! The handcuffs are because he loves playing cops & robbers so I thought these would be fun!
I’m sick to death of the hatching dinosaur eggs so when I saw this I thought it was a little bit different. Instead of having to put it in water & wait for days this one fizzes away instantly and reveals whatever dinosaur you have! I picked it up in Smyths for £3.99 and they had a few different kinds but it seems to be out of stock online so I found it here for the same price!
My child, like most other 3 year olds absolutely loves bubbles. I saw this in B&M for £1.79 and thought it made a nice change to the normal bubbles. The bubble solution comes with it & you dip the wand into it then blow through the other end to create the blizzard of bubbles! This seems to be only available in store so keep an eye out next time you’re in!
I couldn’t buy more engines for the Take-n-Play sets and not get Connor. This one was pretty expensive to buy online – apparently it’s rare or something – so when I saw someone selling it on ebay I nabbed it!
This Hulk bath bomb I picked up in Poundland since we have a huge Hulk fan on our hands now! The putty I got in Smyths, I think it was around £1.29, pretty self explanatory!
Paw Patrol Bath Foam. Connor loves bath foam & his current one is about done, this one was from Home Bargains I think, it was around 89p but they also do it in the poundshop.
What stocking would be complete without chocolate?! The giant coin is from B&M, I think it was around £1. The little bag of snowmen were 89p from Aldi and I think the lollies were from Home Bargains.
So I think that’s everything that will be going in Connors stocking – with the exception of a tangerine, does anyone else do that? I hope this has helped give you some ideas, what are you putting in your kids stockings?
