My son’s favourites from Aliexpress

Toys from Aliexpress

Lately, I’ve been looking for toys for my son which are creative and not expensive. Sometimes I’m really amazed how toys can be expensive. I wanted something that will make my son busy and will give a couple of minutes to myself. I know it can sound egoistic but I like to drink coffee without a kid who is jumping on me. So, I observed my favourite Aliexpress group on Facebook and check what other Moms are recommending. I’ve bought about 10 items and I spend less than £25. Not bad ha?

Magic book and mat

Children of all ages love to paint. But we don’t like to clean after them. What if I will tell you that you can kill two birds with one stone? What does it mean? Your kid can paint without a mess. How it’s possible? You will need a water and a magic book or mat from Aliexpress. How does it work? When you will start coloring the book/mat with a water lovely, bright colours will appear on every page.Toys from Aliexpress

I know it’s awesome! The only minus is that it needs to dry to start painting again. That’s why I’ve ordered some more books! My son loves it a little bit too much and he is quite impatient and he could paint it all day. Which is fine in fact because it gives me some ‘me time’. Win-win!

Price: £3.09

Do you believe in unicorns?

Everyone dreams about unicorns. So, I bought one for my son. It’s a very cute plush toy. The material is very nice and soft. I was really pleased when we’ve got it. The quality is superior. I can tell you that is worthy of every penny.

Popular toys

When I say popular toys I mean all toys from tv shows, cartoons, Disney movies etc. If your kids are fun of them you probably know how expensive they are. My son loves train especially those from ‘Thomas and Friends’. Also, as he is a boy he has special feelings for cars. So, every day we need to watch ‘Blaze and the monster machines’.

We’ve found out that they have on Aliexpress wooden trains from Thomas so we bought 2 for him. He was so excited and happy that we bought him 3 more. It’s always better to pay the same price for 5 than for 1. It was the same with monster machines. First, we bought ‘original’ one for £6. But on Aliexpress we found 2 for £5. So, it’s really good deal. Especially that our son doesn’t see any difference between those from Aliexpress and one from the supermarket.

    Aliexpress and Wish are two of the places we pick up loads of little things, they’re great for Christmas time for stocking fillers and also birthdays to bulk out presents x
