They’re sure to make your favourite little ones beam from ear to ear, plus they’re designed to be played with long after the wrapping paper has been cleared away!


Coffee shop and fix it workbench

Charlotte, mum to Ayda (age 3) and Tommy (age 1) @mrscharlotte01

“My daughter absolutely loves this coffee shop, she really enjoys jumping into the role of a barista and serving up hot chocolates. The chalkboard and moving parts of the fridge and espresso machine make it great fun.”

Amy, mum to Remy (age 3) @i_am_remy_b

“Remy loves his Fix It Workbench and has spent many hours playing with it since it was delivered! He gets to practice lots of vital developmental skills whilst playing with this toy, such as his fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and imaginative play, so the Fix It Workbench gets the seal of approval from me as his mummy.”

Bansri, mum to Ayla (age 4) @ayla.the.explorer

“An adorable wooden toy baking set with lovely detailed accessories. Ayla’s favourite was the sprinkles! It would make for a wonderful Christmas gift and is great for role play activities.”

Hayley, mum to Jake (age 3) and Noah (age 2) @play_teach_repeat_

“The perfect wooden role play kitchen for any keen little baker. Noah has asked to play with his new kitchen everyday since we built it with him. He particularly loves cutting up all the ingredients to put into his mixing bowl and decorating his cake. We’ve had hours of fun already!”

Toy post office and dressing up rail

Holly, mum to Otis (age 4) and Eddison (age 1) @otis.eddison.littlepeas

“Playing pretend post offices was one of my favourite things to play when I was little so being able to see my own children play the same game with this fantastic toy really warms my heart. There are so many interactive features that make it fun and engaging for my boys and it really encourages them to use their imagination. They spend hours attaching the Velcro stamps to the letters and postcards, posting the letters through the letterbox, weighing parcels on the working scales and then using the fun parcel drop feature. They think it’s great that they can use the bank card to pay for postage as well as sign for parcels on the little machine!”

Shop the First Class Toy Post Office

Teresa, mum to Adora and Arabella @our.darling.days

“We’re absolutely delighted with this dressing up rail and the girls have so much fun with it. The rail encourages imaginative play and keeps things neat and tidy. It’s perfect for hanging school uniform, and key outfits for the season to save them rummaging through the wardrobe. We also love the extra area underneath with the magical star detail to store shoes, trunks and accessories. A must-have for a children’s bedroom!”
