When it comes to Christmas, I find that buying for babies is so hard. You want to buy toys that they can use and play with easily but also that will last and not be outgrown too quickly whilst also helping to start the education process and broadening the imagination.
That's why I love wooden toys as they never go out of date. I've found many wooden toys at House of Fraser and have loads on my shopping list waiting for my husband to take his sweaty paws off the credit card.
There are so many to pick from and even if your child outgrows them, they'll last years so will still be in perfect condition if you have any more children or donate them to a charity shop for another child to love.
Anything that can help young children's development such as ring stacker's and shaper sorters are great for little ones as not only are they bright, bold and fun but they help with learning too.
I've seen this amazing range of Hamleys kids toys which are all wooden. From the beautiful Rainbow Stacker to the Hammer Ball Games. I also love the Pull Along Mum & Baby Owl as it is so cute and Joseph will love pulling it around the room now he is crawling.
Then it comes to electrical toys. All babies love toys that light up and sing. Vtech have a huge range of toys that I have on the wishlist for Joseph when Christmas arrives.
The First Steps Plus is at the top of the list because not only is it fun, engaging and musical, but it is a walker and will help when Joseph starts to take his first steps, helping to support him and aid in his walking ability.
We are a family of readers in our family and so musical books are great for little learners. This cute Musical Rhymes Book plays music and sings rhymes whilst also helps little ones to learn instrument names, sounds and colours.
And of course, no baby shopping list is complete without that added addition of a Tiny Touch Remote Control which has been designed for imitative play whilst also playing melodies and has remote sound effects.
These are all on the list to collect for Joseph this Christmas. What else do you think would be perfect for a little one?
