Top 10 Gifts For Kids
Shopping for kids this Christmas and don't know where to start?
We've got everything you need under the one roof with our extensive stock of quality gift ideas. In fact, there's so much in your local Anaconda store that we've decided to nominate some choice picks that are sure to light up the kids' eyes with excitement when they rip off the wrapping paper on Christmas Day.
Try these on for size...
Packed with a host of safety features - like a sloped backend and swim-up step to help them get back in if they fall out, scupper holes that drain water from the cockpit area and different footrest positions to improve stability and motor skills - the Lifetime youth kayak is the ideal way to introduce the kids to paddling this Christmas.
The kayak provides a great balance between peace of mind for parents but also letting kids be kids, which means experiencing the trials and tribulations of embracing new activities. Made from durable high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and UV-protected to prevent it from splitting, fading or cracking, the Lifetime youth kayak is suitable for children aged 5 and over who weigh up to 58kg.
And you get to choose from three summer-inspired colours.
Comfy and quality outdoor furniture isn't just for the grown-ups in your party. The Spinifex kids' animal chair range is a great way to keep the younger holidaymakers in great spirits on your summer holiday camping, beach or outdoor adventure.
Available in fun unicorn, crocodile, shark and koala designs, these chairs come with their own carry bags, which makes them ideal to take to the beach, or for enjoying mealtime or storytime before a good night's sleep.
If your kids love being in the water, take summer fun to the next level with the Body Glove kids' breathe free mask.
An excellent introductory snorkelling kit, the combined facemask and moulded snorkel lets little swimmers get used to the sensation of breathing underwater and taking in underwater views at the pool or beach. The adjustable headstrap ensures the proper fit, and the liquid silicone frame of the facemask guarantees hours of comfort.
The shark design also makes these masks that little bit more special.
Light, compact and durable, a Denali daypack is a nifty gift idea for the kids who love to get out and about.
With a range of different sizes and colours to choose from, a daypack makes everything so much easier for hiking, a trip to the beach, or wandering around town with drinks, umbrellas, wet weather gear and personal items.
Kids love exploring the world around them in the warmer weather, so it's important that their footwear can keep up with them.
Using recycled materials, the range of Merrell Hydro Drift kids' sandals and shoes are treated with anti-odour agents and a non-marking sole. They're quick-drying and feature dual hook and loop closing mechanisms for quick and easy put-ons and take-offs.
Tough enough to handle just about anything the outdoor-adventuring kid can throw at them, the Merrell Hydro Drift range is proving very popular this Christmas.
For kids who love nature and camping, you can't go wrong with something from the Cape Kids' range of t-shirts.
Featuring a selection of contemporary and cheeky designs, these tees are made from 100 percent cotton, so they're easy to clean when camp laundry time comes around. Cotton also provides a relaxed, breathable fit to help kids keep their cool until they can get to the beach, the pool or whatever waterhole they may fancy.
Step aside folks - it's time for action this Christmas! The Huffy Green Machine mini trike promises hours of play and excitement for kids in the younger age group.
With a comfortable bucket seat and sturdy steel frame, this trike delivers as smooth a ride as possible and the rear slicks make it easy-and fun- to get in some drift and slide action.
We recommend 'drivers' wear protective gear, and that adult supervision is always available (just to be safe, rather than sorry).
This scooter is the ideal way to introduce the young ones to scootering and staying active these holidays.
The dual front wheel set-up helps with stability and minimises the chance of a spill, helping kids keep their confidence up while learning to ride. Choose between a robot and unicorn design, and enjoy watching the kids get around with ease and style.
Get kids of all ages angling with our range of kids' fishing combos.
Featuring a host of different makes and models designed to help you reel in a variety of catches across fresh and saltwater conditions, our combos come with pre-spooled, ball-bearing reels, as well as lightweight, dependable rods with stainless steel main shafts. Their 'out-of-the-box' use makes them ready to go as soon as the Christmas wrapping paper comes off.
For even the youngest of anglers, our range of Plano flash fish combos feature a five-foot telescopic rod with its own tackle box. Tight lines, kids!
Bodyboarding at the beach or in the home swimming pool is awesome fun. So, why not choose one of our Body Glove bodyboard range as a gift this Christmas?
Available in unique designs, the HDPE slick bottoms of these bodyboards mean greater performance and added thrills in the water. The XPE topdecks ensure you're getting a bodyboard that is tough enough to handle a variety of conditions and can maintain its density and shock-absorbing features.
Choose from a variety of sizes so nobody misses out on the bodyboarding action.
