Little Dutch Doll Evi
A little doll that's got a lot of fashion sense, Evi wears a matching dress and hairband and adorable pom pom details on her knee-high socks. She's machine-washable and has loads of shelf appeal, plus she's suitable from birth and comes in a great presentation box.
bookspeed Little People Big Dreams
The empowering Little People, Big Dreams series is a whole library of kid-friendly biographies of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. They all did amazing things with their lives but we love the way they're made relatable. Because, after all, each one of them began life as a child with a dream. An amazing 7.5 million copies have been sold worldwide to date and the line-up continues expanding, introducing children around the world to artists, trailblazers, and dreamers who changed the world.
£15 - £25
KIDLY Label Sensory Nesting Balls
We're pretty proud of our award-winning KIDLY Label's Sensory Nesting Balls. They'rere a great pick for teething babes but are a real grow-with-them toy that they'll get years of play out of too.
Little Dutch Toy Cash Register With Scanner
In a lovely mint green that complements any colour scheme, this wooden Toy Cash Register With Scanner will inspire hour upon hour of imaginative play. There are push button numbers, a cash drawer, toy money, scanner and payment card. Team it with toy produce and the customers are sure to be queueing up.
Another KIDLY Label fave that's a fab combo of chunky organic cotton cord and recycled teddy fleece. Inside there’s a popping contrasting lining and name label, an internal pocket plus an elasticated bottle strap to keep things neat and tidy. Outside the adjustable canvas shoulder straps and grab handle make it easy for small people to put on and the chunky zip pulls assist small fingers. When they’re not cuddling it, they’ll hang this on their peg with pride.
£25 - £50
Oli Ella Dozy Dinkum
They're really cleverly weighted so they've got all the floppiness of a newborn and can be put in loads of cute sleepy poses - without all the hassle of endless feeding and sleepless nights! With restful faces and a little tuft of hair poking out from under the hood of their supersoft cotton babygro, they're really relaxing to hold, for adults too!
Little Dutch Doctors Bag Playset
This kits them out with everything they need to take your temperature, check your heartbeat and blood pressure and cure you of any malady, from boo-boos to coughs and sniffles. We especially love the little plasters that velcro on and off fingers. The set includes: a doctor's bag, 4 plasters, thermometer, syringe, ointment tube, stethoscope, reflex hammer, sphygmomanometer, otoscope and a doctor's cap.
£50 - £75
Jabadabado Parking Garage
They’ll have the pick of the places to park one of the three cars included in this three-storey garage. If that doesn't whet their imagination enough, there is also a helicopter, perfect for whizzing around their bedrooms, before setting down on the helipad on top. Great for siblings or friends to enjoy together - refuel, take the lift all the way up and then take the ramp down - it's the best kind of toy for hours of creative play.
Globber Go Bike Duo
A robust steel-framed set of wheels that will take them in style and comfort from toddlerdom to reception class. A soft, anti-slip PU saddle is comfy on their bum and can be adjusted to eight different heights (!) while the removeable footrest helps their balance. Cleverly, in its training position it has a double back wheel, but as they grow you can flip the frame over to give a higher frame position with a single rear wheel. Ride on!
£75 - £100
Janod Table & Chairs Polar
An unusual gift choice, maybe, but a real investment piece for any bedroom, playroom, kitchen or living room. Your child will love having their own space to sit and draw, play or read. The second chair makes it an ideal social area for playdates or siblings, while the lovely colours are sure to complement your interior design, and it even has a removable pencil holder. They've thought of everything...
Little Dutch DOLLS HOUSE
Fits into any living room or play corner and will suit children of all ages - and will probably bring out the big kid in you too! It's great that it comes with 19 pieces of furniture and accessories, so it can be played with right away. There are sticker sheets too, so the 'owner' can decorate it in their own unique way and additional play sets can be collected, to add to the fun.
Little Dutch Kitchen
The sophisticated design and cool mint colour-scheme would grace any bedroom or play corner. There's an oven and microwave, a sink with a tap, and a gas stove with two hobs. The control knobs make satisfying clicking sounds when turned on and off and the kitchen comes complete with pans, utensils an oven glove and salt and pepper shakers. Just add toy ingredients and their imagination.
Little Dutch Children's Workbench
Comes with wooden tools and plenty of things to fit, fiddle and bang. The complete set consists of 48 parts, including a child-size play hammer, wrench, screwdriver, nuts, and bolts and loads more. Whatever the job that needs doing around the house, you'll never need to call someone in again. (Think of the savings!)
Jabadabado Market Stall
A pretend play dream world, with delicious-looking vegetables and fruit, fresh baked bread, dairy and grocery items and even pots of herbs. They'll spend hours and hours browsing the shelves or serving their toys and friends from the counter. There's a till with coins and even fabric shopping bags for their customers to carry the goods away. We wish all food shopping was this nice!
