You. Can. Not. Have. Too. Many. Muslins. This is the first law of babycraft. So any new parent will be delighted with some quality muslins and the good news is we have a wonderful array to choose from, in multi-packs of tonal plain colours or cool modern prints.

Done By Deer 2-Pack Burp Cloths

Done By Deer 2-Pack Burp Cloths double as sensory toys too. Clever.


Monochrome items with high-contrast designs encourage brand new babies to focus, so a black and white soft baby book can be stimulating to little ones from very early days.

A rattle or squeaker for a newborn won't ever go out of fashion and we have loads to choose from in all shapes and sizes that will stimulate their senses - and look darn cute in their little hands too! We're currently loving the Hape Butterfly Rainmaker Robert, Busy Bug and Turbo Turtle.

Hape Busy Bug Roll

Hape's Busy Bug Roll is a toy they can grasp with ease and chomp on it when those gums get itchy!

We're also pretty proud of our award-winning KIDLY Label's Sensory Nesting Balls that are a great pick for teething babes but are a real grow-with-them toy that they'll get years of play out of too.

Babies grow and change so quickly that it can feel like you aren’t getting your money’s worth with all of their gear. Thankfully, there are now plenty of products emerging into the market, which evolve to accommodate their changing needs and these make wonderful big ticket gift ideas.

Liewood Baby Gym

A play gym is a great joint present and there are plenty of models with removable toys that can also be used in the car. We stock lots of playmats in stylish colours that can be used for many years - first as a safe spot for tummy time, thereafter for a reading nook or as a bedroom rug.


Whether they’re on their feet, cruising the furniture, but they can’t quite grasp the art of walking, or quite happy crawling, a cool walker or ride-on is perfect for helping with those first toddles. Walkers have different play activities, including flaps, spinning dice and moveable cogs to develop fine motor skills, while having fun too. The Janod Llama Ride-On is a little bit different: a colourful, fiesta of fun with a shape-sorter built into the body of the vehicle, for extra playing opportunities and to give other motor skills a work out too.
