Come Christmas morning, you want the sound of tearing wrapping paper to be followed by squeals of delight. So to help Santa get it spot on, here’s my pick of the best toys this Christmas.
This is brightly coloured and designed to stimulate your baby’s senses. It teaches numbers and animals, has lots of sounds and melodies for hours of play.
For little kids
A beautifully crafted wooden bike, this gives kids the balance, coordination and – ultimately – the confidence, to ride a big bike without stabilisers.
Stop the kids stealing your tablet
This is a brilliant multimedia tablet for children, with a touch-sensitive screen, 2MP camera and child-friendly WiFi. With creative activities, games and e-books, the possibilities are endless.
I love this cute play set for playing ice cream shop. It has a lovely vintage look and comes with scoops too. Has all the ingredients to run your very own make-believe ice cream stand.
For big kids
As with the very popular app, you play this game by firing the catapult to knock down the structure and the pigs. This should be great for keeping kids happy.
This is a great, purse-pleasing toy for any Lego fan, with three super-cool models for them to build.
I really like this fun activity set. There are five different fridge magnets to decorate, with bright acrylic paints plus paintbrushes included.
This stylish light, is perfect gift for any design-conscious teen. You arrange the shapes just like the Gameboy game, and it lights up once connected. With the retro feel, it’s sure to go down a treat.
For the family
Ditch Mayfair for the Piccadilly line and snap up tube stations along the way. Stylish, and If your family is as competitive as mine, it’ll be a firm favourite for years to come…
I’ve yet to meet a kid who isn’t mad about Peppa Pig. This soft toy is cute, colourful and budget-friendly.
Wishing you lots of fun and laughter come Christmas morning,
Toys Buyer (AKA Santa’s Little Helper)
