For ages now I’ve been saying that Christmas is weeks and weeks away and I wasn’t sure what all the fuss was about. Now, suddenly we are around a month away and I’m not quite sure how we got here so fast.
We don’t really make ‘Christmas Lists‘ as such. One of the children likes to cut ‘ideas’ out of toy catalogues and make a collage out of them, and the other three will just mention a couple of ideas, but they never ask for loads of things. I do know families where lists are a big thing and some of the items on those lists are hundreds of pounds. I’m glad that’s not part of our build up to Christmas to be honest.
Sometimes the hardest part can be locating things. You often think you’ve left plenty of time and then suddenly realise things are out of stock, not available in sizes you need and so on.
One of the boys is really into Pop! Vinyl figures and two of the boys are fans of all these sets of pokemon cards – they absolutely love them but I’ve struggled to find sets, tins and so on. I’m so relieved to have found an online store called Magic Madhouse, where all these things are together. They stock Pop! Vinyl figures, Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon, and Yu-Gi-Oh!, as well as table top games like Dungeons & Dragons. It’s been so helpful for me to have everything in one place and not only that but clear explanations about what everything is and what you get. I’m pretty clueless when it comes to this stuff and terrified I’m going to pick the wrong cards, tins or figures – but this online store is very useful.
From what I can tell the prices in their online store are highly competitive. Some of the trading card tins for example, I saw at the weekend for almost twice the price, so they are most certainly worth a look if you are looking to purchase some of these items for gifts this Christmas. I’ve ordered tins and various sets of trading cards, so at least I can tick those of my Christmas preparation list.
There’s loads of choice and tons of products I’ve just not seen anywhere else at all. From what my boys have told me it’s super easy to end up with dupes and fakes when it comes to the trading cards in particular, so having a reputable online store to order from massively reduces the guess work on my part and makes this a whole lot easier from a parental perspective.
The Funko range is spilt into all the different ranges or ‘franchises’ as they seem to be known, so you can easily select what you are looking for. At the moment out of interest, they have the advent calendars and they are all on sale, so if you’ve been looking for one of those, get yourselves over there ASAP! They have everything from Marvel, to Harry Potter, Disney and things like Star Wars and Fortnite.
Are your children fans of Pop! Vinyl figures, Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! – if so, do check out the selections over at Magic Madhouse, you won’t be disappointed.
