Adventure Is Out There

Adventure Is Out There

Spring has sprung and the Easter holidays are upon us. Keep yourself and the kids entertained indoors and out with Boswells. Just a few of the ideas in store...

A game kids can play together or with an adult. I loved having a bash when I was younger. We have a few versions in stock including the pictured, Classic Swingball at £19.99



We stock a great range of kites from the mad 'Mr Piggles Parachute', (a soft toy pig with a usable parachute - brilliant) at £13.99 to the more traditional Cutter kite (pictured) from £7.99.

For the ability to take any kiting opportunity we recommend the Zipaway Compact kite which is a foldable kite that fits in your pocket from only £3.99.



Nature is always an adventure. Try the Nick Baker 'world' range to investigate some of our garden visitors. Ladybird & Snail worlds are £9.99 and Worm (pictured) and Ant are £14.99.


If the weather takes a turn or you have some travelling to do we have some super games & puzzles in store. Here are just a few. Try to avoid the old adage It's all fun and games...until someone loses an eye!

We have Board Games galore in full and travel sizes, but how can I resist recommending the Oxford edition of Monopoly at £24.99.



We have all the art & craft basics and some great kits. This is fab for those fascinated by shapes & designs. Several Spirograph sets are available, pictured is the Pro Artist set at only £9.99.



Whilst we have many card games the kids can't get enough of Top Trumps. Very topical right now is the pictured Marvel Ultimate Heroes, but we also have the popular Horrible Histories and Diary of a Wimpy Kid amongst others at £4.99. 


Last but not least don't forget our very popular Easter Egg Hunt is running until April 21st.

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Every Mum is unique and we have many more gifts in store, but here are some ideas to get you started.


If your Mum likes nothing better than being Queen of the kitchen then we have everything from the practical to the beautiful to offer and you might get a cake out of it.



Mums spend their time looking after us. So time to pay back with one of the great pamper sets on offer from only £12.99 and dedicate the bathroom as 'For Mum only' for some luxury time each day. 



Our Haberdashery department is becoming the one stop shop for the crafters, knitters and sewers of Oxford. If Mum has been known to mumble "I can (or should) do that" at the Great British Sewing Bee then now is the time to help.
