The 10 BEST Gifts for Football Mad Kids!
1. Smart Ball
Another great little gadget for practising your football skills! The aim is to keep the Ukick in the air as long as you can using different parts of your body. It’s great because you can adjust the difficulty, making it suitable for a range of ages & ability levels. I can see this giving my kids hours of fun in the garden over the summer!
3. Blow Football
I remember playing this as a kid myself! Grab a straw and blow the football around the mini football pitch to score as many goals as you can! This set also comes with a mini trophy for the winner – bonus!
4. Ollyball – The Ultimate Indoor Play Ball
If your children are anything like mine, they think throwing & kicking a ball around inside my house is perfectly ok…until something breaks! Well, with the Ollyball, now they can! Without breaking anything! The Ollyball is made out of KrunchCOR technology which means it absorbs any impact from strong kicks & hits. Kids can also customise the outside of the ball with crayons or felts making it their own. The perfect present for a rainy day…
5. Klask – Magnetic Wooden Game of Skill
‘Danish Game of the Year’ winning Klask is a must-have for football-loving kids! Two players battle it out on the wooden playing field to score as many goals as they can using their magnetic striker. Don’t hit the barriers though, or your opponent will score instead! So much fun & develops some crucial critical thinking skills!
6. Tiddlywink Football
Classic tiddlywinks with a football twist! We love this set because it is compact & portable meaning we can take it on holiday or even when we go for a meal (you know that lovely time where the kids decide they would rather run around the restaurant than sit & eat their food)… To use the set you need to make the game board out of 12 connecting cards & use the provided counters to try & score goals. Lots of competitive fun!
7. Magnetic Football Tables
Follow your team with these fabulous magnetic tiles & chart! Each team has their own tile in their team’s colours & space to record their points progression. Includes 124 teams across 4 divisions & 3 blank tiles for new teams. We love that it is wipe clean so can be used every season giving the gift amazing longevity!
8. Football School – Where Football Rules the World
You can’t beat a good book as an ideal present for kids & this one is full of football fun! Football School is 200 pages long & filled with fun facts & cartoons all based around the fabulous game of football. Children can have lessons in a range of subjects from maths to zoology & learn the answer to the vital question of ‘When do footballers poo?’
9. Penal-Tea Football Mug & Ball
One for older kids (or big kids at heart!), you can now enjoy a nice cup of tea during halftime whilst playing your own mini-game of finger football! The mug comes with a cut out section just big enough for the ceramic football to fit in. Practise taking penal-teas & score into them mug’s ‘net’!
10. Foooty – Create Your Own Football
Last, but not least, we love this fabulous Foooty football! It is actually a flat-pack ball with 10 pieces that you can fit together to make a 15cm ball! It isn’t too complicated to put together (instructions are included!) & can be transformed into a range of different balls – a mini rugby ball, juggling ball or even a frisbee! Perfect for taking with you anywhere you go as it can fit into your pocket – every time you see a suitable area, click your ball together & play!
