With just a few weeks until Christmas, we are looking at this

:00:13.:00:19.

year's coolest toys and gadgets. Checking out the smartest new

:00:19.:00:23.

console games and we are revealing the gifts you can make without

:00:23.:00:33.
:00:33.:00:48.

Hello! Just look at this place. It is packed out like Santa's grotto.

:00:48.:00:52.

Whatever you work it into, we have got something to get you excited.

:00:52.:00:59.

We have got gadgets, puzzles, board games, you may net. You will be

:00:59.:01:04.

telling your mates about what we will show you. One man who loves

:01:04.:01:09.

his toys is Barney but he will be gutted because he is not here. He

:01:09.:01:14.

is busy rehearsing for panto. We have a very special guest presenter

:01:14.:01:19.

of joining us for the Day. I cannot think of anyone better to help us

:01:19.:01:24.

on a show all about gadgets. The Gadget Show presenter and

:01:24.:01:29.

technology fanatic Ortis Deley really knows his stuff when it

:01:29.:01:37.

comes to all things Tech. Light, iPhone, action. He gets to play

:01:37.:01:41.

around with cutting-edge technology, trying out some of the latest hi-

:01:41.:01:48.

tech gear on the market. So, if it is gadgets you are after, he is the

:01:48.:01:58.
:01:58.:01:59.

man in the know. Ortis Deley, welcome to Blue Peter! We have got

:01:59.:02:04.

to fire up your engine but you did that all by yourself. Is it that

:02:04.:02:11.

cool? It is the only way to travel! I use it every day to get to work.

:02:11.:02:16.

You into your gadgets and gizmos but have you always been techie?

:02:16.:02:20.

was always into science, physics and chemistry but the only bit of

:02:20.:02:26.

technology I was in two as a kid was the tech -- television. Back in

:02:26.:02:35.

your day it was not fancy I pads. No, it was Abacus is. I cannot wait

:02:35.:02:41.

I have some stuff to show you. There are loads of toys and gadgets

:02:41.:02:45.

which are using technology these days. I want to show you a few

:02:45.:02:53.

examples. This is probably one of the more affordable ones. This is

:02:53.:02:57.

the Annoying Monster. If you attach the right part of him you will get

:02:57.:03:03.

a reward. Are you not a fan of this? When I am in a toy shop I

:03:03.:03:08.

have to press everything that makes a noise. This is clearly annoying

:03:08.:03:18.
:03:18.:03:21.

somebody! We have lost the monster! It is only �14. This here is the

:03:21.:03:27.

Fidget. A people have been talking about on the message boards.

:03:27.:03:31.

reacts to touch and sounds. You can have a small conversation with him.

:03:31.:03:41.
:03:41.:03:47.

Hello. You are looking good. Fish live in salt water. There you go.

:03:47.:03:52.

�47. If you have got a bit more money at your disposal or perhaps a

:03:52.:03:58.

rich uncle, for �140 you can get your hands on this radio-controlled

:03:58.:04:03.

car from Playmobil but what is special about it is it has a camera

:04:03.:04:09.

on board. You can use it to spy on people. You can sneak up on your

:04:09.:04:14.

brothers and sisters. It uses Wi-Fi to transmit pictures to a screen of

:04:15.:04:21.

your choice. Go and spy on the crew at the back eating sandwiches.

:04:21.:04:26.

they are all working which is good. I have to have an advent calendar

:04:26.:04:30.

every year but this year we have gone for something different. There

:04:30.:04:34.

is no chocolate but it has toys instead. I know Barney Harwood

:04:34.:04:39.

would love it because he is very into Star Wars. I know it is early

:04:39.:04:44.

but I am going to open the first one. You get actual Lego.

:04:44.:04:50.

Brilliant! You will not rot your teeth but you can make something.

:04:50.:04:56.

That is moving without me operating it! The dog has got the remote.

:04:56.:05:00.

There is something we have not mentioned but we know loads of you

:05:00.:05:03.

have games consoles and if you do you are probably hoping for a new

:05:03.:05:13.
:05:13.:05:19.

game for Christmas. Here are our The ever-popular FIFA series has

:05:19.:05:24.

released its newest version, FIFA 12. There are new ways of playing

:05:24.:05:29.

on line which means you can be promoted through 10 leaks. The

:05:29.:05:33.

movement of the players and the ball have become even more

:05:34.:05:37.

realistic. You can try to take Manchester City to the Champions

:05:37.:05:46.

League final or even score a goal with Wayne Rooney.

:05:46.:05:52.

Just Dance three is a multi-player game where you can dance and sing

:05:52.:05:57.

like a pop star. You can sing along to tracks by people like Katy Perry

:05:57.:06:00.

and Jessie J. You can learn the routines to perfection and impress

:06:00.:06:08.

all of your friends with your dancing skills.

:06:08.:06:14.

With the London 2012 Olympics only eight months away, even Sonic and

:06:14.:06:17.

Mario are getting in on the sporting excitement and they have

:06:17.:06:21.

brought along plenty of pals as well. If you can play along with

:06:22.:06:26.

your friends and family in 20 Olympic events including rowing,

:06:26.:06:36.
:06:36.:06:44.

athletics, football and Go on! Yes, Dilip! -- do it! It is

:06:44.:06:50.

the taking part that counts. Moving on. It is not just about computer

:06:50.:06:54.

games at Christmas because you can get toys which means you learn a

:06:54.:07:00.

new skill as well. When I was younger, I had a Paul Daniels Magic

:07:00.:07:05.

set. Your Dad's will know who he is. It is like the magic sets you can

:07:05.:07:10.

get now. The idea is you learn a few tricks, you perform at your

:07:11.:07:16.

friends and family. It is a very good gift all round. I never quite

:07:16.:07:19.

perfected my tricks as a youngster so this is my chance to redeem

:07:19.:07:24.

myself. Are you going to perform a trick now? I am going to make our

:07:24.:07:29.

next guest magically appear. Why are you laughing? I am not! Brace

:07:29.:07:37.

yourself! Waving a wand. Magic phrase, come on, magically appear,

:07:37.:07:47.
:07:47.:07:52.

abracadabra! What can I say? Very well done. Hello. This is then and

:07:52.:07:58.

he is a real magician. He will be showing us a trick later on. -- Ben

:07:58.:08:02.

Proos. Not only is he a member of the prestigious Magic Circle, but

:08:02.:08:08.

earlier this year he was named Young magician of the aged just 16.

:08:08.:08:12.

Congratulations. How did you get into it? I saw someone performing

:08:12.:08:19.

tricks at school and I got in spite. Can anybody be a magician? Yes, you

:08:19.:08:24.

have to have the confidence and the determination. The confidence to

:08:24.:08:31.

perform and the drive to practise the tricks? Yes. Would you name a

:08:31.:08:39.

card, any card. The five of hearts. Inside my DEC should be one of the

:08:39.:08:45.

wrong way round in the middle. Somewhere in the middle. We are

:08:45.:08:53.

looking for the five of hearts. is! I chose a different one in

:08:53.:08:58.

rehearsal and he got that one right as well. We will move on to a more

:08:58.:09:03.

light-hearted trip. Inside my back pocket I have some rope. There are

:09:03.:09:09.

three pieces. A long one there for you and a little one for you. And a

:09:09.:09:15.

little one for me. Three pieces of rope. The idea of the trick is this.

:09:15.:09:22.

Take the ends of the little and the long and pull. All three become the

:09:22.:09:30.

same size. When I said watch his hands closely, you did not have to

:09:30.:09:36.

do it that close! People think it is easier to do the trick with two.

:09:36.:09:42.

I think it is easier with one. That loop is there at the end is there.

:09:42.:09:47.

Their I know scissors or glue. loop of rape is not much use. If we

:09:47.:09:55.

take the ends, the trick is based on static electricity. There is no

:09:55.:10:04.

rope in his pocket. But the ends jumper back into the pockets. You

:10:04.:10:09.

can see the ends travel down the rope. They will link in the middle

:10:09.:10:12.

like that. The hardest bit is the middle because you have to twist it

:10:12.:10:21.

and pull. It gets confusing now. If you want to get back to where we

:10:21.:10:26.

started, you have to take it so we have two. If you remember, Helen,

:10:26.:10:32.

we had three. Three equal lengths of rope. No, you had a short,

:10:32.:10:40.

middle and long. Correct. That is what we have. One short, one long

:10:40.:10:48.

and one medium. That was amazing. Thank you very much. Now, Christmas

:10:48.:10:54.

means big bucks for shops. �620 million is spent in the run-up to

:10:54.:10:58.

Christmas. This Monday was mega Monday, the biggest online shopping

:10:58.:11:02.

day of the year. You do not have to spend money to buy gifts and show

:11:02.:11:08.

your family how much you love them. You can make gifts. I'm going to

:11:08.:11:11.

introduce you to these magnets. They will cost hardly any money at

:11:11.:11:21.
:11:21.:11:29.

all and they will make a great gift. All you need is a special piece of

:11:29.:11:34.

magnetic paper. It is magnetic on one side and white on the other.

:11:34.:11:38.

This will help you make your pasteurised and magnets. You can

:11:38.:11:48.

buy it from a superstore or online. -- your personalised magnet. You

:11:48.:11:52.

can leave messages, put them on fridges. You could do photos of

:11:52.:11:58.

your friends and families. I know you love One Direction. You could

:11:58.:12:06.

do them! All you have to do is print them on to the magnetic paper

:12:06.:12:10.

and then cut to around them. goes into the printer like normal

:12:10.:12:15.

paper, even though it is thicker. I am going to cut up the Super Europe

:12:15.:12:25.
:12:25.:12:26.

because he is nice and muscly! The best thing is if you give a gift

:12:26.:12:30.

that is personalised, so I'll probably going to give my mum some

:12:30.:12:36.

of Barney the dog, and it is better because it is specially for them,

:12:36.:12:40.

not just something bought in a shop. Yes. It shows you have thought

:12:40.:12:49.

about them. There Hugo. We will put the Mermaid there. You can spend a

:12:49.:12:55.

lovely afternoon doing this as well. And there's Barney's head on there!

:12:55.:13:01.

The simplest, easiest, loveliest Christmas present. You could make

:13:01.:13:06.

me a mermaid and Barney into a Santa. You can do whatever you like.

:13:07.:13:12.

It is a lovely idea for a present and a great activity. Buying a set

:13:12.:13:17.

like this could cost you �20 but this is a fraction. You hardly have

:13:17.:13:27.

If you want to make magnets like ours with Blue Peter pets on them,

:13:27.:13:32.

they are on the website. Just go there and print them out. The

:13:32.:13:36.

instructions are there as well. we have a tip for you on how to

:13:37.:13:40.

save money on wrapping your presence as well. We will have that

:13:40.:13:46.

later on. Christmas shopping can be very stressful, with everybody -

:13:46.:13:51.

and a round. But we have decided that not all the best Christmas

:13:51.:14:00.

presents come under the tree. -- bit everybody is running around.

:14:00.:14:06.

Now we have Aaron Craze, and he and his two daughters, Molly and Leah,

:14:06.:14:10.

decided they wanted to spend more quality time together. That is the

:14:10.:14:17.

best present of all. Hello, I am Aaron Craze. Come in

:14:17.:14:22.

and meet the family. This is my daughter Leah and my other daughter,

:14:22.:14:28.

Molly unable stop her as a very busy dad, being in the kitchen and

:14:28.:14:31.

presenting Junior Bake off, it is very important for me to spend

:14:31.:14:37.

quality time with my daughters. We are making something called the

:14:37.:14:43.

tombola of time. It is rarely simple. This is how it works. You

:14:43.:14:49.

get some paper and pens. We sit down as a family. We pick four

:14:49.:14:55.

activities each. We write them down and put them into the tombola. We

:14:55.:15:05.
:15:05.:15:23.

pick one every month and do the I am writing down a little extra

:15:23.:15:28.

thing for them here. It is the Pottery Cafe. They don't know that

:15:28.:15:38.
:15:38.:15:38.

so it is a bit of a surprise. I will take them there. We have got

:15:38.:15:44.

all activities tucked away safely in the old tombola. And seen as you

:15:44.:15:48.

are being created today, I have got a head start and I have organised

:15:48.:15:57.

something for today. The pottery cafe. Hey! I have bought the girls

:15:57.:16:02.

to a pottery cafe and I want to see something created. There is loads

:16:02.:16:10.

to choose from. Have you made a decision? Yes. Let's get cracking!

:16:10.:16:20.
:16:20.:16:20.

Though we don't want to crack them! I don't know about the girls, but I

:16:20.:16:30.

am having a great time! Your one looks good! As it is nearly

:16:30.:16:34.

Christmas, it is quite bowled and I did not want to do something

:16:34.:16:41.

outside. -- it is quite cold. This is fun. As you can see, they have

:16:41.:16:49.

thoroughly enjoyed today. And I have as well. Looking good. We have

:16:49.:16:55.

had lots of fun. We have got to spend time together, which is quite

:16:55.:16:59.

difficult sometimes because I am always working in the kitchen and

:16:59.:17:05.

that. But today, it was nice. Just me and the girls, sat doing

:17:05.:17:13.

painting, having a chinwag. A good day. Buy one, get one free! I think

:17:13.:17:18.

you have done a great job. We have had loads of fun and it has been a

:17:18.:17:24.

fantastic afternoon. I cannot wait to pick out the next activity.

:17:24.:17:30.

If you decide to have a timbale of time, I reckon you should write out

:17:30.:17:34.

your suggestion five or 10 times and then you will get to do what

:17:34.:17:40.

you want to do! That is cheating! Think of the members of your family.

:17:40.:17:46.

You say that but when you see what they want... A good way of making

:17:46.:17:50.

sure families spend time together at Christmas is to get the board

:17:50.:18:00.
:18:00.:18:08.

games out. This is Operation but My family will not play with me any

:18:08.:18:15.

more because they say I cheap! of people are paid to come up with

:18:15.:18:21.

new board game ideas. Scott is a board games inventor, so most

:18:21.:18:28.

people's dream is his reality. Scott, I am a 10-year-old and I am

:18:28.:18:34.

a board games inventor. After a long day at school... When most

:18:34.:18:37.

children are getting home and spending the evening relaxing, I am

:18:37.:18:44.

busy running my own business. A few years ago, when I was seven, I was

:18:44.:18:49.

ill and away from school. Rather than being bored at home, I kept

:18:49.:18:55.

myself occupied and was created. I decided to design my very own board

:18:55.:19:00.

game. I never thought in a million years that my game would be made

:19:00.:19:05.

into a proper product selling in the shops. The first thing to make

:19:05.:19:11.

a board game is you need a prototype. That is a rough model of

:19:11.:19:17.

whatever it is you are making. It shows you what it will look like.

:19:17.:19:23.

We started with an Advent calendar. But it was flimsy and not stable

:19:23.:19:30.

enough. We then moved on to a border like this. But the openings

:19:30.:19:36.

were far too small to get the sweets in. We upgrade it to look

:19:36.:19:46.
:19:46.:19:46.

like this. The idea is, you start here at the opening time and moved

:19:46.:19:50.

along all the way to the finish, here. A year ago, I received the

:19:51.:19:57.

first batch and they have been sold in shops all over the country.

:19:57.:20:01.

Including one of the most famous department stores in the world. At

:20:01.:20:06.

Harrods in London. It was really exciting when I got the chance to

:20:07.:20:13.

have my game professionally made. They also sell my game at the local

:20:13.:20:23.
:20:23.:20:23.

shopping centre. Let's have a look. This is my game up on the shelves.

:20:23.:20:27.

It feels amazing to have my game surrounded by all these different

:20:27.:20:34.

toys. They also sell masks, key rings, mouse mats, and each of them

:20:34.:20:44.
:20:44.:20:51.

is related to a character. A The first thing I do when I come

:20:51.:20:57.

home from school is I come to my mum's office to see if anybody has

:20:57.:21:01.

bought a game. Along with selling my game in the shops, were also set

:21:01.:21:07.

up my own website to sell the Games. When an order comes in, I need to

:21:07.:21:13.

prepare the package and get it to the customer through the post. When

:21:13.:21:18.

it is safely packaged up, I take it to the Post Office. It has been so

:21:18.:21:25.

exciting to design my own game and see it in the shops. I am Scott's

:21:25.:21:30.

mum. The viewers have asked questions. How difficult is it to

:21:30.:21:36.

make a gain? It is not hard but to get it sold in the shops, it takes

:21:36.:21:40.

quite a long time. How has your life changed since you invented the

:21:40.:21:45.

game? I have met lots of famous people and gone to lots of places,

:21:45.:21:50.

like Chicago. It has been amazing. What advice would you give to

:21:50.:21:54.

people who would like to design or invent their own game? Think of

:21:55.:22:00.

your favourite toy or game and think of how you could improve it.

:22:00.:22:05.

I herd you have enjoyed finding out about my life been a board game

:22:05.:22:11.

designer. -- I hope. That is a pretty cool job. We have shown you

:22:11.:22:16.

have to save money on presence, but what about the wrapping paper? --

:22:17.:22:22.

on presents. Have a look at these. They look great and pretty tempting,

:22:22.:22:27.

but if you have a closer look, you will see that all of these gifts

:22:27.:22:33.

have been wrapped in recycled newspapers and magazines. Even the

:22:33.:22:40.

decorations, the love of flowers, have been made out of these papers.

:22:40.:22:45.

-- the little flowers. And we have put on some glitter. All the

:22:45.:22:48.

instructions are on the blue Peter website and it is great for the

:22:48.:22:56.

environment and saving money. -- the blue Peter website. Just one

:22:56.:23:02.

thing more to show you before we go. This takes a remote control and

:23:02.:23:07.

sent it into the air. It is a helium balloon, but using the

:23:07.:23:14.

control, I can send it up into the air and make its nose bit. That is

:23:14.:23:19.

pretty cool. You can have loads of fun with that. You can have a go in

:23:19.:23:25.

a minute, dog! Thank you for coming in to be a guest presenters. It has

:23:25.:23:32.

been an absolute pleasure! Only 17 years in the making. Next week,

:23:32.:23:35.

Barney will be getting into the Christmas spirit with a host of

:23:35.:23:39.

celebrities. And we will have a number one chart-topper in the

:23:39.:23:45.

With just a few weeks until Christmas, the team devote a whole episode to the subject dominating many children's thoughts: toys.

There are plenty of ideas of what to ask for - and what to give - this festive season, from gadgets to games to inexpensive stocking fillers. There are also ideas for how to spend more time with friends and family.

Plus, there is a gift to make and young magician Ben Proos performs his tricks in the studio.
