Letter stamp set (US link / UK link)

Use these alphabet stamps to write exciting messages.  They are a perfect size for little hands and the set includes both lower and uppercase letters.  The coloured ink lasts well and it all comes in a handy wooden storage box.  We loved using them to help us write our letter to santa.




Wooden cutting fruit (US link / UK link)

This Melissa and Doug fruit set is great for hands on creative play.  It consists of 7 sliceable pieces of fruit which can be cut using the included wooden knife. Listen out for the crunch sound as you cut into the fruit. This toy can even be used to introduce children to basic fractions as they cut the fruit into pieces.




Rainbow sound blocks (US link / UK Link)

We totally LOVE these rainbow sounds blocks. Each block is filled with beads and they all make a different sound when shaken. Your little one will love looking through the coloured plastic and seeing things change colour. These blocks are great for stacking, sorting and construction as well as teaching shape and colour. We loved using ours in our sensory fort for babies.



Wooden dough tools (US link / UK link)

These wooden dough tools are perfect for creating imaginative shapes, patterns and textures. They will last a long time and they come in a handy little wooden tray. Your little one will love getting creative by cutting, shaping and rolling patterns into play dough or clay. 




Band in a box (US link/ UK link)

Form a band with this set of 6 quality instruments which come in a handy wooden crate. This band in a box includes a tambourine, cymbals, maracas, clacker, tone blocks, and a triangle.  We love forming a band and playing instruments as we sing nursery rhymes





Wooden activity cube (US link / UK link)

There are five different sides to this sturdy activity cube. It says it is for children up to 18 months but older toddlers will enjoy it too. The five sides consist of curvy mazes, open and close doors, racing car rollers, animal matching and ABC tiles. There is lots to keep your toddler entertained and I know a few older kids that would still enjoy playing with it. 




Shape sorting clock (US link / UK link)

There are so many uses for this shape sorting wooden clock. The 12 blocks are in different shapes and colours and fit into the shapes on the clock. This is a great educational toy for teaching your little one about shapes, colours, numbers and telling the time.




Car transporter (US link / UK link)

This sturdy toy encourages imaginative play and your little one will love lowering the ramp to drive the small cars onto the transporter. An added bonus to this set is that the cars fit on the wooden train sets that lots of children have. 


Wooden kitchen (US link/ UK link)

A toy kitchen is a must have toy for all toddlers.  This brightly coloured Melissa and Doug wooden kitchen is in a non gendered colour which is perfect for little girls or boys. I love that this kitchen has a sink included and a working timer to get your little ones imagination going.  Pretend play is an essential part of a child's development and your little one will have great fun making you dinner, inventing recipes, playing cafe's or shops, baking cakes, playing house.....the list is endless. 


Weighing scales (US link / UK link

This set of working wooden weighing scales is great for pretend play.  It is so much fun to collect objects from around the house and pop them on the scales to see how much they weigh.  The weighing scales have numbers 1- 10 written across them to help your child with early number recognition skills. Setting up a pretend play post office or shop with this set of weighing scales would be great fun.






Dolls pram (US link / UK link)

What can I say......this dolls pram is BEAUTIFUL and so well made.  It is suitable for inside or outside use as the wooden wheels have rubber tyres on them.  Little girls and boys will love pushing their dolls and cuddly toys around in this pram and it will encourage them to take on a caring role and keep their toys safe (or if your children are anything like mine they will use the pram to collect and transport huge collections of objects from around the house!)
