Our research shows that many children love playing tricks on adults at Christmas time.

Would Christmas be Christmas without a weird gift from a well-meaning relative? Crazy presents have been a key part of Christmas for generations, fuelled by the trend in ‘Secret Santa’ gifts.

The leading high street homeware retailer Robert Dyas has a selection of surprisingly fun gifts ideal for children.

Jodie Harris, Head Elf and Senior Christmas Gifts Buyer at Robert Dyas said, “Our research shows that many children love playing tricks on adults at Christmas time. Practical jokes can bring the home to laughter when executed at a family gathering.”

The Robert Dyas Unexpected Christmas Gift List

The Sprout-A-Pult miniature catapult is perfect for anyone who is anti-sprouts. The handy vegetable launcher can be used to fire vegetables across the dinner table. The Sprout-A-Pult is ideal for those who relish a chaotic yet competitive dining experience.

Set to gross out your friends and family, Magic Bogies can be stretched, rolled, shaped and squashed. There are a great range of shapes this wonderfully gooey toy can be made into. You must have to take your pick.

Being a staple member of the emoji family, ‘Sticky the Poo' is a favourite amongst children and adults alike. With masses of stickiness and three different versions to collect, Sticky the Poo provides hours of splattering fun when thrown at any flat surface.

What is Christmas without a silly game? Plop Trumps combines the subjects of animal ‘business’ and science for an enjoyable card match. The aim of the game is for players to get rid of all of their cards while avoiding the obvious hazards.

The Fart Card Game is a delightfully quirky adaptation to the game UNO. Fart illustrations replace the traditional colours, leaving kids with a stinking sense of humour. The explosive card game is an absolute stinker.

Fart Blaster is a rude and incredibly fun gadget bringing an update to the much-loved whoopee cushion. It is the perfect facility for anyone who wants to fight back against those who have eaten too many sprouts. Hoot when they toot, and everyone will know who to blame for the unpleasant odour.

All of the gifts featured are available on the Robert Dyas website and through selected stores.
