Great Gizmos sell a wide range of children’s toys and gifts, and have a lovely selection from the brand NICI, of which we were sent a few items to try out. I could immediately tell all the items are of a high quality, well made and look good so I was keen to get the children to try them out.
We received a Timmy the sheep backpack, sloth pencil case, coloured pencil tin and child size scissors.
The Timmy backpack has been a huge success in both it’s softness and likeness to a cuddly toy as well as it’s usefulness as a bag. Both my children loved this and decided to take turns each day in using it. Miss M above is modelling it and you can see it’s a medium size bag and Timmy’s head lifts up to get inside. It fastens with a strong magnetic button that keeps everything secure inside. The straps are adjustable and are a lovely bright lime green colour. The bag itself is exceptionally soft and my children loved cuddling it when they were out and about in place of a cuddly they would use at home. This bag has been a hit with my two and has even been on it’s first trip to France and was great to carry a few useful items in.
The Sloth pencil case is lovely, one of the most luxurious pencil cases around. It feels so soft to the touch and has a really cute sloth on the outsdie. Inside the lid unrolls to reveal storage for a number of pens or pencils. You then have the main zipped compartment with plenty of storage inside for all your other stationery items.
The scissors are cute with a wild animal theme and are sharp enough to cut well, but perfect for little fingers. My little boy has made good use of these as he loves to cut his pictures out when he draws them.
I just love the coloured pencils in the Kangaroo tin, how I would have loved these as a child! The ideal of them being double ended with two different colours in each pencil is fabulous and means you only have to carry half the amount of pencils around with you but still have all the colours!
I think the NICI range of stationery from Great Gizmos is lovely and made to a high standard. They are a little pricier than other brands, but to be honest, you get what you pay for. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for other NICI products as I’ve been really pleased with what we’ve tried out here.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the products in order to write the review.
I love Nici and these do not disappoint! I would love a sloth pencil case for me!
