  • Playmobil Treasure Hunt Gift Egg

    Why we love it: These are Playmobil Easter eggs with a difference. Instead of chocolate, there are themed play sets hidden inside. They sold out pretty quickly when the first came out, but Debenhams still stocks the 'Pirate on Treasure Hunt' theme. The Gift Egg itself can also be kept and used as a money box with a special slot for pocket money.

    Suitable for: 3 - 8 years

    What it costs: £7, from Debenhams
