Top Toys for Summer Holiday Fun

With the school holidays in full swing, here’s a little inspiration for entertaining your tribe this summer.

Whilst we could all do with six weeks with the Super Nanny, the reality is that juggling work, childcare and everything in between can sometimes feel like a bit of a tall order.

Create a happy balance with these tops toys and ideas for keeping busy little bees occupied either on the go or at home - all season long (and well beyond).

Top Toys for Outdoor Play

Our range of pop up play tents are what sunny adventures are made of. The perfect hideaway for intrepid explorers, these dreamy dens are ready for day after day role play fun. A childhood classic, crafted from thick 100% cotton canvas with a detachable, washable base and a hide and seek secret window flap. They’re a doddle to put up and take down too,  making them highly versatile for use outside on sunny days.

This family sized picnic blanket makes the ideal companion for day trips to the beach, the park or for some good old back garden playtime fun.  No ordinary blanket, its utterly charming design features a sweet woodland scene, complete with forest friends to discover. Crafted from soft pure cotton, it has a water resistant backing which makes it suitable for use on dewy grass or sand. Then, when it’s time to pack away, simply roll it up and secure with the clever adjustable straps, which can be carried on your back, or by using the handy carry handle.

Top Toys for Travel
