Top 10 toys for babies & toddlers

“Dear Santa… I’ve been really good this year…” We asked two of our favourite Kiddicare bloggers Chloe and Laurenne to put together their little ones’ Christmassy wishlists.

 

FROM 6 MONTHS 

VTech Crawl And Learn Bright Lights Ball £13.99

Perfect for little ones on the move, this crawling ball is a great toy for babies who are almost / at crawling age. The sounds and lights capture baby’s attention and the ball rolls around, encouraging baby to crawl towards it.

 

Sunny Safari Jumbo Playmat £29.99 (photo above)

Crinkles, textures, colours and lots of happy, smiley friends. And it’s washable too.

 

Fisher Price Discover and Grow Jumperoo £85

The Jumperoo is a freestanding jumper that allows children to jump and bounce safely. Each Jumperoo has a spinning 360 seat to allow them to access the range of toys, lights and sounds. I think this has to count as a gift for parents too – as it gives your arms a much needed break whilst keeping baby happy and stimulated too!

 

FROM 12 MONTHS

Buzzing Brains Wooden Building Blocks £11.99

A classic construction toy that’ll keep them entertained for hours. And hours.

Building blocks

Tomy Hide & Squeak Eggs £6.99

Any parent with this toy will be able to tell you about the mystifying appeal of Squeaky Eggs. We can’t quite put a finger on exactly why they like it so much, but it’s a surefire hit in the present department. Particularly popular with 1 – 2 year olds, and can be used as a shape sorter for older children. This toy has longevity.

 

Sunny Safari Zebra Rocking Animal £39.99

Brilliant value, funky design, lovely and squishy and it strengthens little legs and improves gross motor skills too. Love, love, love!

 

FROM 2 YEARS 

Buzzing Brains Rockstar Keyboard and Stool £29.99

Let your little performer take centre stage with a 31 key piano, flashing lights, demo song, record and playback function and heaps more. Next stop X-Factor.

Rockstar

Play Doh Bakery set £14.39

With stamping tools, cake cutters, and lots of fun details, there’s plenty to keep little minds stimulated on a rainy day.

 

Big Jigs Wooden Railway (42 pieces) £24.99

Wooden railways have been sparking imaginative play for generations. When the design of a toy has not needed to be altered in decades, you know it’s a true classic. An absolute must have for any toddler.

 

VTech My Laptop £13.59

A great educational toy for 3-6 year olds, this pre-school laptop has 8 modes for music, learning phonics and numbers and doing puzzles. This mini laptop is great for teaching early computer skills and would make a lovely gift for a preschooler or child who has just started nursery / reception.

 

Prices correct at time of publishing but with all the fab deals going on at Kiddicare it’s likely you’ll pay a whole lot less! Look out for The Really Big Christmas Countdown coming soon to Facebook. Merry Christmas friends!
