First Christmas pressie - lots of pressure! We're joking, but who are you trying to impress, really? Babies are pretty entertained by anything novel. So, whatever your budget, you'll find something cool in our First Christmas shop that'll hit the spot. But if you'd like a bit of a steer, here are five of our absolute faves.
FOR UNDER 6 MONTHS: Little Dutch Wooden Baby Gym
'With this complete Wooden Play Gym you just pop them down and watch the fun start.'
This sturdy Little Dutch Wooden Baby Gym
comes with everything you need included, from the attractive wood frame to 3 soft toys - ready for the small recipient to try to bat & grab. It makes playpen or tummy time miles more fun, encouraging hand-eye coordination and stimulating their senses.
FOR OVER 6 MONTHS: TriClimb
'A beautiful Pikler triangle climbing frame that they'll love using, in different ways, for years.'
Pickler triangles are all the rage because they're amazingly versatile. An indoor climbing frame first designed by eminent paediatrician Dr Emmi Pickler - babies from around 9 months will love learning to pull themselves up to the top, developing their motor skills while they gain confidence. Once they become more coordinated, they can move across to the other side and climb down. As well as being fab to climb and perch on, it's a den with a sheet over the top, can be set up like a baby gym, or paired with the Triclimb Biri or Miri accessories for even more fun. As a gift, genuinely warrants the term 'awesome'.
FOR THE BIG GIFT: Rocking Elephant With Removable Protection
'An exotic rocker with safety features that's ideal for learning to balance.'
This pretty wooden Rocking Elephant With Removable Protection and padded seat is an ideal pressie pick. Looks super cute in the corner and you can remove the rail as they get bigger and more confident. It's a great way for them to learn to balance while on a playroom safari.
FOR SHELF APPEAL: Little Dutch Stacker
'A stylish Little Dutch version of a classic first toy, that's also the perfect gift or nursery ornament.'
A Stacking Ring truly never goes out of style and this lovely version from Little Dutch’s Pure & Nature Collection comes in calm muted shades and has attractive chunky rings for small hands to grapple with. It'll stimulate any baby's fine motor skills and promote good hand-eye coordination.
FOR TRAD WITH A TWIST: Fabelab Soft Blocks
'They'll love nailing their motor skills with these oversized, soft building blocks.'
The almost soundless version of traditional building blocks, these squidgy Soft Blocks are made from GOTS certified cotton on the outside and filled with foam. Featuring cute animal illustrations with grabbable ear embellishments, any baby will love building and knocking them over endlessly. With no noisy surprises for either of you!
