gift guide : timeless toys
Ever since I was pregnant with Che I’ve been passionate about gifting my children timeless toys, hence we have a collection that is beautiful, practical, gender-neutral and, most importantly, made to last.
This gift guide is the first in a series that will hopefully help you buy considered and well-meaning Christmas presents – for everyone.
1. because a doctor’s set always inspires hours of make-believe. 2. the stacking rainbow is pretty and practical and quickly becomes a bridge, a house, a boat. 3. a rope ladder for the child who loves to climb. 4. colourful, quality gardening tools for young green thumbs. 5. remember, it’s never too early to encourage real-life “playing house” – a broom* is always handy 6. handmade in NZ by a husband and wife team (also parents of five children) this sewing machine* will encourage the youngest of crafters. 7. because we are a generation of snap-happy people and it’s never too early for a gorgeous camera*. 8. a set of magnetic wooden vehicles is a must for any child. 9. a house of beechwood blocks in all shapes, sizes and colours (and they come in a handy cotton bag for easy storage). 10. the best bike I have ever bought – the wishbone bike* transforms from a three-wheeler to a two-wheeler and is height adjustable, hence it’s made for 12months-5years – baby walker/toddler trike/balance bike. It can even be personalised with a name plate*, seatcover* and stickers*.
