Toys for under £5

Under a Fiver Finds #SDFiverChallenge

3rd November 2017

We are officially on the countdown to Christmas and I am very much in full swing of shopping for Christmas presents. I love spending time picking out gifts for all of my family. It is hard sometimes with being on a budget, especially this year as families have grown – a lot. This is why I love bulking out gifts with stocking fillers, so when Britmums were looking for people to take part in the #SDFiverChallenge I knew it would be perfect for me!

#SDFiverChallenge with Sports Direct and Britmums

Sports Direct have teamed up with Britmums so that we can promote that they aren’t all football boots and expensive sports gear. They also have a variety of stocking fillers that are perfect for Christmas. Not only that but they are under a fiver!

I was really shocked when I looked online as to just how many lovely gifts there were that were under £5, so much so that I have been back on the site and got a few more things……

The gifts that I picked specifically for this challenge are;

Paw Patrol Watch

Suitable for ages 3 years plus.

Paw Patrol WatchAs soon as I saw this I knew I had to get it for Reuben. He has been obsessed with our watches for ages and what 4-year-old doesn’t love Paw Patrol?
I was expecting it to be quite flimsy, but it actually seems quite sturdy. It comes in a tin which also doubles up as a money-box. I know he is going to love this and it will be money well spent!

Monster Movers

Suitable for ages 24 months plus.

She is now of ‘that age’ where things seem to either be too young or too old for her. These are classed as too old for her but they have to be a better alternative to the cars that she keeps taking from Reuben’s toy box. She loves driving his cars around but they are small and metal and just not really suitable for her. When I saw these I thought they would be perfect. Colourful and fun looking and the perfect size for her hands. I hope she enjoys them.

Monkey Tree Tumble Trouble

Suitable for ages 3 years plus.

Monkey Tree GameGames were always a big part of my Christmas Day when I was a child. Every year I would get a new game to play with my family. It is a memory that I love and something that I want to recreate with my children. Now that Reuben is four-years-old he is starting to play more games and his attention span is growing it is the perfect time to start building on our games cupboard.

One of my favourite games to play was Kerplunk. I loved playing that game. My sister and I would play it all the time and on the days that we didn’t play it ‘traditionally’ we made up games using the sticks and marbles. When I saw Monkey Tree Tumble Trouble it reminded me of all the happy times I had played Kerplunk with my sister and so it really was a very easy choice to make.

What I love about this is that instead of marbles there are moneys that you have to get to the bottom. This means I can relax a little bit more with Jessica being about. I’m really looking forward to playing this with him, I think he will really enjoy it.


There really was such a massive variety of items, all under £5. Ranging from toys to teddies to clothes. I was actually pleasantly surprised as to how much variety there was, and from what I have seen it is pretty good quality. I’ve been on the website since and the items seem to have changed and so it looks like they may rotate the deals they have which is great. It is perfect when shopping to a budget!

Have you been on the Sports Direct website and been surprised?
