Christmas Gift Guide for Pre-School Children
I find buying for pre-school children quite tricky since they all have very different capabilities. There’s a sticky point between age 2 – 3 where they may have outgrown the ‘baby toys’ but aren’t quite ready for the 3+ range.
However, it goes without saying that I think a Tuff Tray is a fantastic investment for pre-schoolers as the play possibilities are endless. I think we paid around £75 with a stand when we bought ours for Freddie for his second birthday but it has been played with so many times that I would recommend them to parents without fail.
Kid K’Nex Zoo Friends – RRP £18.00
This cool set comes with 55 K’nex pieces that can be made into more than 30 zoo animals. The pieces are brightly coloured and great for small hands. We recently reviewed this Zoo Friends set and it was a huge hit!
Cocomelon Peg Board Puzzle – RRP £9.99
Great puzzles to keep little one’s entertained with their favourite characters.
Let’s Learn Trivia – RRP £12.99
This thought-provoking game is a great way to allow your kids to use their imagination through learning.
Colour Dinosaur Sorting Set – RRP £13.99
We got Freddie a Tuff Tray for his second birthday so sets like this are really great when you’re looking for a quick play idea that will keep them busy for a while.
Superwings Jett Supercharged Deluxe – RRP £17.99
Freddie absolutely loves any toy that transforms from one thing to another and this is a TV show as well. This one has lights and sounds which is doubly awesome!
Playdoh Cash Register – RRP £19.99
We have a lot of Playdoh cutters, rollers and other bits and bobs but this set is really fun. You can even make your own play money.
Scrambler Ducati Balance Bike – RRP £40.00
We bought this for Freddie for his second birthday and he loved it. It’s the perfect size for toddlers and is lightweight which makes it perfect when you inevitably have to carry it when they’ve had enough.
Tuff Tray and Stand – RRP £59.99
A Tuff Tray has endless possibilities. You can create play ideas both inside and outside and the stand makes it far easier for your child to stand and play. It can be as basic as filling with water and giving them a selection of cups and bottles, or you can set up amazing play scenes with themes such as sealife creatures or construction.
Owl Water Wheel – RRP £12.99
This is great for water play on the Tuff Tray. Fill the top with water, turn the tap and watch the water make it’s way down to the truck waiting at the bottom.
Jaques of London Animal Threading Bead Set – RRP £12.99
This set is great fun for little ones who need a quiet activity that will keep them busy for a while. Freddie is also really good at stacking them up as well as threading them.
Kitchen Sink Playset – RRP £23.99
Another huge hit for us was this water playset. You fill up the bottom and it has a working tap by pressing the button, and it empties back into the bottom so recycles the water time and again. The set also comes with accessories and fruit and vegetables that you can chop.
Play Tea Set – RRP £12.99
We’ve used this tea set so much. We’ve had tea parties, used it in the bath and have also put it in the paddling pool in the summer.
