We’ve made our list and checked it twice! Here’s our guide for the best festive buys for babies and toddlers, from newborn to 3.
From sustainably harvested, beautiful wooden toys and engaging gifts built to assist with bub’s fine motor skill development and hand-eye coordination, we’ve got you covered.
Made from sustainable plantation wood, Totem Stackers - Pets is a gorgeous stacking toy designed to help develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Each set comes with 12 stackable pieces including three double-sided animal faces (one sleeping, one awake), six solid stacker blocks and three differently textured ring blocks. The sensory aspects of Totem Stackers are perfect for babies, teaching them to create shapes and explore the contrasting textures of the food grade silicone bands. The chunky stacker pieces are easy for little hands to grab and manipulate, helping build grip strength. Ideal for babies who are sitting up, Totem Stackers help build balance and coordination as they play with both hands.
Ideal for babies learning to crawl, Roly Poly Koala’s wobbling action entices little ones to reach out and push. The repetitive action improves hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, all the while helping to develop an understanding of cause and effect. Koala’s ears offer a great grip point for small hands and as he rolls around he makes a lovely tinkling bell sound, for additional sensory stimulation. Suitable for 3 months plus.
These vibrant, neon flash cards illustrate the alphabet from A to Z, helping children in the early stages of cognitive development to match letters with fun and familiar objects. From Apples to Zebras, with Guitars and Queens in between, these double-sided, high quality cards have a child-friendly plastic ring perfect for little fingers to easily grab, flip and play. Easily opened by parents, they can also be clipped around pram poles and car seat straps to ensure the flash cards are never far away from your toddlers hands. A beautifully designed, colourful and unplugged way for early learners to explore the alphabet, each pack contains 26 cards printed on high quality card.
Perfect for baby, Little Wheelies – Rolleroo is made from sustainably harvested plantation beechwood with food-grade silicon wheels. This cute little Roo is a great toy for developing ﬁne motor skills. Designed to be pushed and rolled, little ones will use their hands to initially pick up Rolleroo (and probably chew on the wheels or ears)! Through trial and error babies will soon learn that the toy rolls along when pushed and is fun to crawl around, chasing along the ﬂoor. Rolleroo’s silicon wheels ensure smooth, quiet zooming around the ﬂoor.
Button Puzzle – Animals is Portable Play at its finest. A nifty wooden box with a pegboard-style lid with its gridded, large buttonholes, acts as a storage container for the buttons and activity cards inside, as well as the play surface itself! With twenty beautifully illustrated designs across ten double sided activity cards and easy handling buttons, this is a great puzzle for young children, designed to help develop ﬁne motor skills and hand-eye coordination. This is the ideal activity for little ones practicing colour recognition, when matching the vibrant buttons to the design, and working on strengthening their pincer grip, promoting the strong ﬁnger and hand muscles needed for crayon and pencil skills.

The silicon trimmed wheels ensure smooth zooming on all surfaces.
