‘Mummy my best present is ....’



In our house the children start planning their birthdays (April) right after Christmas.  The very thought makes me want to go and lie down in a dark room.  So by the time I really start planning their birthday, many lists later, the anticipation and excitement is at fever pitch.  The pressure on us parents to get it right is immense.  Managing expectations is essential, we are horrified at the prospect of our little darlings to turning into foot stamping monsters, but on the other hand a disappointed face on birthday morning would also be unbearable.  All year long I counter ‘ Mummy please can I have that,’  with ‘Put it on your birthday / Christmas list.’  And so when the time comes I really want to see that glow of pleasure, can’t stop smiling face, that shows that they are bursting with happiness.


SO - here are our top 6 tried and tested toys across the range.  The show stoppers, the ones where parents come back to me and wax lyrical about how delighted their little flippers were.


Red Riding Hood Reversible Upsidedown Doll



Every one knows and loves Little Red Riding Hood, and this doll brings the tale to life, with three characters in one toy . Charming details such as her picnic basket can be opened (magnetic fastening) to reveal jam and waffles for tea. Her stroll through the woods is depicted on the base of her skirt. Then turn her skirt over and underneath Granny can be found waiting. Pull back Granny’s hat to reveal the hungry wolf. But all is not lost, open the flap and the hunter re-unites the family.

Farm Soft Play Set

A beautiful soft play set that babies and toddlers will love, and would also look great decorating a nursery.

A handy handle makes the set a great toy to take with you.
