Too many lovely toys to choose from? For a little inspiration we have collated a list of our top ten favorite toys for Christmas 2015. Happy shopping!
Haba Building Blocks
We are a fan of all things Haba at Send A Toy, particularly their building block range. Made in Germany, Haba Block Sets are superior quality and available in assorted styles ranging from basic first discovery blocks to complex construction sets. The ingenious thing about Haba Building Blocks is that all pieces are constructed on a base size of 4cm x 4cm. This makes the sets compatible with all other block sets in the Haba range, including their fantastic Master Builder Ball Tracks
. Unfortunately not cheap, but generation quality and worth the investment in our opinion.
Not a fan of plastic fantastic at Send A Toy ... until we stumbled across the Playforever range. Meticulously designed in the UK, these special toys have, as their name suggested, been engineered to last forever. (A plastic version of Playsam toys in our opinion, with a less indulgent price tag!)
The Australian designed Wheely Bug has been Send A Toy's best selling ride-on toy for over six years. This award winning product features omni-directional castor's that give it unlimited mobility, two sizes (small and large) and six adorable designs: cow, mouse, tiger, bee, ladybug and pig. A fantastic gift for toddlers and pre-school age children, encouraging countless hours of active, energetic play.
A quality play tea set makes a ideal gift for any young child who enjoys pretend and imaginary play games. Send A Toy stocks an extensive range of tin, wooden and plastic tea and picnic sets that are suitable for both boys and girls. Our hands down favorite is the Eco-friendly version produced by American company Green Toys
. This quality set is made from recycled milk containers and is not only environmentally friendly, it is also extremely durable, non-toxic, child-safe, dishwasher-safe and free from PBA, lead and any other nastiness!
Quercetti are an Italian company who produce a creative range of educational toys for children. Their Fantacolour Portable set is a colourful peg art system with a compact table top easel, an assortment of colourful unbreakable pegs and an inspiration guide. It allows children to follow the colour coding and create colourful mosaic like pictures, or use their imagination to create an infinite number of patterns and designs. Quercetti Fantacolour is educational, fun and creative. It also aids colour recognition and hand eye co-ordination.
Too many fabulous products to choose from in the award winning Art Kit range by French company Djeco. From their wonderful stamper sets and paint by numbers kits, to their stickers, paints and felt markers - we love them all!
My Little Wardrobe
(la petite armoire) is a exquisite play set from French toy-makers Moulin Roty. The set contains two soft dolls from Moulin Roty's Grand Family range and 9 pieces of clothing to dress them in. Open the adorable suitcase to find a wardrobe complete with hanging rail, cardboard hangers and drawer. My Little Wardrobe makes a truly special gift, to treasure for a lifetime.
Haba produce a brilliant range of tools specifically designed for sand and water play. One of our favorites is their unique Sand Spilling Funnel
. This handy sand tool is perfect for fun at the beach or in the sandpit. Simply fill with a mix of sand and water and 'spill' away. With the Spilling Funnel you can write your name, decorate a cake or even create a sand castle. The possibilities are endless!
