Jenson’s Christmas list

Wow, this Christmas is so different to last year already. For a start, Jenson can tell us what he’d like for Christmas. Secondly, he knows who Father Christmas is – and he’s been ‘calling’ him since the start of October telling him what’s on his list. From the start it’s been a Paw Patrol Lookout Tower, Paw Patroller and pups. Then, when I had to take him in to Sainsburys during the toy sale, he added on a big fire engine. Then we started watching more Paw Patrol episodes and he started asking for more merch (damn you, kids’ TV!).

He’s pretty easy to please though. As well as Paw Patrol he’s really into Fireman Sam, Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom, Peppa Pig, Thomas and Friends, The Secret Life of Pets and he’s just rediscovered Moana. Beyond film and TV, he’s generally into rescue vehicles, trains, dinosaurs, anything that makes a mess… Activity books are great because they hold his attention for a bit and they’re handy to take out with us if we plan on stopping at a cafe. Now that he’s in pre-school, he’ll be starting to learn phonics, so I’m hoping that using his favourite characters will encourage him to learn.

Here’s a fun selection of favourites (all available on Amazon – affiliate links).
