Roll Up Roll Upm it's time for ice cream! A classic barrow-style ice-cream trolley with striped fabric canopy.  Features a sliding door to the frozen compartment illustrated with classic ice-cream flavours to stimulate imaginative play.


Children can now perform real magic and create their own magical pet with brand-new, Magic Mixies from Moose Toys. The Magic Mixies Cauldron comes with all the magical ingredients needed to make a cute furry friend! Children can find the spell from the Spell Book, then add magical ingredients such as a Glitter star, Crystal Gem, and Magic Feather to the potion one step at a time to help bring their friendly creature to life. With over 50 sounds and reactions, Magic Mixies react to touch and respond to the wand. Plus, the more Magic Mixies are nurtured and cared for, the stronger their energy levels become.

Real Mum tester Sarah and her two sons George, seven, and Oliver, five, said: "On the first attempt Mixie surprised us and appeared early and we were a little disappointed that they had not been able to add all of the parts to the potion. But the following day we tried again and successfully completed all of the parts before Mixie appeared. The more attention you give Magic Mixie, by stroking her head the gem lights up and it responds by making noises. You can tap Mixie gem with the wand three times and then tell it your wish. If the gem turns green the wish is granted or if it turns red the wish is denied. Both Oliver and George would give it 10/10 and definitely love it as a Christmas present. Pixie Mixie has not left Oliver’s side, much to George’s disgust! Mixie has come out to lunch, shopping and slept in Oliver’s bed!"
