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.



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!



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!



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.


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!
