Rainbow 6 + Wobble Board - £184

We love the versatility and functionality of the rainbow stepping stones, they work to encourage movement, play, creativity and fun whether in your home or garden. The design makes them a truly open-ended toy but also one that encourages activity and our children's natural desire to move and create.

Suitable for children aged 12 months plus the super strong but lightweight toy can be handled and moved safely by even the smallest of children.


But don’t just take our word for it, here’s a recent review by one of our customers.

'‘These are great. The colours are amazing and the versatility of these are endless. My younger two had so much fun playing with these at a class so I decided to take the plunge and buy our own set. Now my older one can enjoy them too.’

Konges Slojd

Doll Stroller - £47

A best seller from Christmas 2022 the Milk Tank doll stroller is finally back in stock and ready to make its way under trees the world over. It’s not hard to see why the gorgeous doll stroller has been so popular, the classic design has had a modern upgrade and the quality is noticeably better than many high street and supermarket versions. The sturdy frame and beautifully printed fabric make it the perfect Christmas gift for a doll-loving child, and with accessories such as a matching highchair and doll outfit, you might struggle to choose!

We love pretend play toys and think that dolls play makes up a very important part of your child’s early development, whether it's encouraging communication and empathy or helping them express their emotions to you.

‘I am really impressed with the quality of the tiles. I really regret not buying the tiles earlier (my kids are 3 and almost 6). I like the fact that you can expand the collection’

Moulin Roty

Artist Carry Case - £45

The Moulin Roty Artist Watercolour Set is a beautiful collection of art materials set in a hard carry case. Perfect for taking into the garden, on walks or on holidays to let your child try to capture their view. Designed to encourage your child to slow down, observe, spend time in nature and notice the smallest of seeds and the creepiest of crawlies.

We think this makes an excellent Christmas gift for a child who enjoys art and quiet time.

Little Dutch

Play Kitchen - £39.95

Who doesn’t love to pretend play? whether it is running their own café, making dinner for friends or simply copying their parents whilst trying to involve themselves with the day-to-day running of the house the Little Dutch play kitchen is a wonderful addition to any playroom.

The kitchen features a small sink, two spatulas and the essentials for any meal: salt and pepper shakers. This cute little kitchen is foldable and can be packed away with all the accessories, perfect for toy rotating or if you have limited space.
