Christmas Gift Guide – Toddler Gifts 2017

Wondering what to get your toddler for Christmas?  To help with some ideas, I’ve put together some of my favourite gifts for toddlers this year.  Everything you’ll find in our Toddler Gift Guide has been put to the test by Jack (almost 3) and Hudson (18mths), and come highly recommended by us all.

PERSONALISED TEDDY BEAR CUBBY – CUBBIES

Choose from over 50 cubby designs and customise with your own personal embroidered message.  Ideal gift idea for new babies, birthdays, christenings, Christmas, weddings and more.

Hudson absolutely loves his friend Barkus McDribble and can often be found snuggling up with him.  Besides being adorable, Barkus is super soft and cuddly and very well made.

OVER THE MOON PLAY TENT – FIELDCANDY

Spark your child’s imagination with a Little Camper Play Teepee by FieldCandy.  All their children’s tents are highly durable, lightweight, and easy to assemble.  Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, the teepees are highly waterproof, UV fade resistant and guaranteed for 1 year ensuring endless hours of fun.  Teepees can be made extra special with personalisation.

Jack and Hudson’s Over The Moon play tent was really easy to put together.  It took us no more than 5-minutes first attempt!  It is very well designed, fantastically made and of very high quality.  The tent has been personalised with their names and it’s safe to say that we have two very happy little campers!

ORGANIC CHILDREN’S 3 PIECE DINING SET – BIMBAMBOO

Organic, biodegradable dining set for your little ones, available in a range of fun prints.  Made from naturally sterile, bamboo fibre and contains no nasty petrochemicals, BPA or phthalates.  Set includes a divider plate, bowl and sturdy handled cup.

If looked after, this set should last for 3-4 years.  When you’re done with it, you can simply send it back to Mother Nature by crushing it, soaking it in hot water and burying it with your organic compost.

KIDS FANCY DRESS COSTUMES – PRETEND TO BEE

If your little one’s love to dress up, then head over to Pretend to Bee.  Whether for the home, parties, playgroups or school, Pretend to Bee have the most fantastic selection of kids fancy dress costumes.  Costumes are designed with large openings, elasticated waists and velcro fastening for easy dressing and most can fit over children’s own clothes.

Jack can be seen wearing the 3-piece Modern Fire and Rescue costume, whilst Hudson fancies his chances as a F1 Driver.  The quality of the costumes are fantastic and they look super realistic too.

MY FIRST RAILWAY PALS DESTINATION DISCOVERY SET – FISHER PRICE

The new My First Thomas & Friends Railway Pals range is perfect for little Thomas & Friends fans and makes for a great first train set.  The track set and vehicles are chunky and robust, and therefore great for little hands.  Children can easily create their very own track setups using the many different curved, straight and intersection pieces.

Jack and Hudson love anything to do with Thomas and the new Destination Discovery play set has been a huge hit with them both.  You can read more in our recent review blog post.

UTOPIA 360° 4D+ AUGMENTED AND VIRTUAL REALITY BUNDLE – RETRAK

The new bundles are super fun and provide a sensory experience that makes learning come to life.  Each bundle – Animal Zoo, Space Exploration, and Dinosaur Experience – includes a VR headset, a deck of AR flashcards and is jam packed with fun & educational features.

We have been enjoying the new Dinosaur Experience bundle and genuinely, think it is amazing.  The set-up is quick and simple, and it is all so easy to use.  Jack (almost 3) literally yelled with excitement when he saw the dinosaurs come to life, the graphics are incredible!  Get a glimpse of how awesome this toy really is through the video here.
