Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids

Treat your loved ones to a gift that they will really love this Christmas. Whether they enjoy building model kits, drive radio controlled models, build model railways, or collect diecast cars or toy animals, we have you covered. Check out the Wonderland Models Christmas gift top picks.

Model Kits

With being stuck at home during the pandemic lockdown so many kids have taken up the hobby of building model kits. Christmas is the perfect time to treat them to something a little special. These are some of our our top model kits for beginners and young modellers, including a wide range of starter sets and gift sets.

Can't see anything that takes your fancy? Check out the thousands of model kits available at Wonderland Models.

The Airfix range of Quick Build model kits are designed for younger children who aren't quite ready to be let loose with glue and paint. They are constructed in a similar way to Lego, but look much more accurate to the real thing when complete.

Radio Controlled Toys

Radio controlled (RC) toys have developed from humble beginnings into a growing industry for children's toys and more serious hobbyists. With such a huge range of options available, knowing what to buy is the hardest part. Radio controlled toys come in a range of sizes and costs to suit any buyer. The range starts at small budget models and extends to highly detailed replicas of a wide range of vehicles. These include radio controlled cars, planes, quadcopters, boats and even tractors.

Here we present a selection of our most popular ready to run radio controlled toys, meaning that they are ready straight from the box without having to construct the model or purchase any radio gear separately. Make sure to check the product description as some ready to run RC toys may require batteries for the controller.

Model Railways

Relive the nostalgic era of steam with a historical or heritage railway layout, or recreate modern diesel and electric railways. Shunt wagons around a fiddle yard, or build loops for passenger trains. With a huge range of train sets, locomotives, rolling stock and accessories to chose from there is something for any railway enthusiast to build their perfect layout.

If you are looking for the best way to get started in Model Railways then look no further. These train sets provide everything you need to get started, and allow you to expand your layout with the buildings and accessories range. Train sets include a loop of track, a controller and power supply, a locomotive and several wagons or coaches, and all of the connectors you need.

We have an Introduction to Railway Modelling to help you get started, or you can jump straight to the full range of model railways.


The range of toys available at Wonderland Models is large and varied, with everything from toy cars, animals, doll houses, games, puzzles, crafts, and much more. Here are some of our top toys.
