Our Top 10 Toys for Christmas 2020

Our Top 10 Toys for Christmas 2020

It's that time of year when the big retailers start issuing their Toys for Christmas 2020 lists. Argos has been the first to release their list this year. Back in the day, it was a ritual to flick through the Argos catalogue to prepare your Christmas list. Most of which you never actually got but it was still fun to look at the pictures and dream...

10. Small Foot Rainbow Blocks XL £22.99

Because after every storm there's a rainbow! And 2020 has certainly been a storm! These rainbow blocks look great as a display item, they're also good for building and colour recognition. These colourful can be stacked or slotted together. Suitable for ages 12 months+.

9. Rainbow Designs Spot Activity Toy £18.99

Spot is a timeless classic book. This baby soft activity toy is based on the little yellow puppy from the Spot books - we also stock the classic Where's Spot. This little Spot features a squeaker and a peek-a-boo mirror and will make a great gift for young babies to explore. Suitable from birth.

6. Sass & Belle Don't Stress Meowt Mug £7.49

Ok, it's not a toy but it's certainly a great gift for teenagers. You know, the ones you don't know what to buy for and they always seem to stress about everything... (usually Tik-Tok/Snapchat related)... Give them something different to think about this year instead.

1. Tonies Starter Set £62.95

Tonies Starter Set

Our newest product is the innovative Toniebox. Great for getting kids away from a screen to listen to a wonderful story. The brain-child of two dads from Germany, the Toniebox has now launched in the UK. In fact this is such a great product, it deserves a blog post of its own!

The concept is simple, you put a little Tonie character on top of the box to listen to it's pre-recorded story. There are some great classics to choose from like The Gruffalo and Stick Man. There are also some children's favourites like Peppa Pig and Fireman Sam. And not only that, you can also record your own story with the Creative Tonies! Even better, family members who live far away can record a story online to be downloaded to the Creative Tonie.

 

Christmas 2020

 

So we hope you consider our range of alternatives to expensive plastics and choose some Christmas toys that your children will enjoy for years to come. Remember, a toy is for life not just for Christmas! (Well, until the kids grow out of it anyway!)
