It’s difficult to buy presents for babies, for a number of reasons. Firstly, they can’t tell you what they would like, since they mainly communicate in cries, burps and gurgles. Secondly, there is a lot of stuff that babies can’t do yet; for example, giving them a FX 3 in 1 transforming vehicle would be a bold choice. Luckily, Wicked Uncle has a great range of brilliant presents for the smallest small people. Here are some of our best sellers.
- Bandana Bibs
- Ladybug Nightlight
- The Birthday Surprise Counting Rag Book
- What Should I Wear? Activity Book
- Rotating Music Box
- Fifi the Rabbit
- Bumblebee Pram Rattle
- Baby Bear
- Stay Put Rattle Set

Now that you have got newborn gifts nailed and Christenings covered, you can relax and enjoy spending time with the babies. They might not do a great deal, but they look cute, and they are snuggly, and provided you can hand them back to their parents when they cry, they’re rather good fun.
Here are some baby-themed jokes. Share them with sleep-deprived new parents for extra Wicked points.
A three-year old walks over to a pregnant lady while waiting with his mother in a doctor’s office. “Why is your stomach so big?” he asks.
“I’m having a baby,” she replies.
“Is the baby in your stomach?” he asks, with his big eyes.
“Yes, it is.”
“Is it a good baby?”
“Oh, yes. A really good baby.”
Shocked and surprised, the little boy asks, “Then why did you eat him?”
Panicking when her toddler swallowed a tiny magnet, a mother rushed him to hospital.
“He’ll be fine,” the doctor promised her. “The magnet should pass through his system in a day or two.”
“How will I be sure?” she pressed.
“Well,” the doctor suggested, “you could stick him on the refrigerator. When he falls off, you’ll know.”
