The Best New Toddler Toys Unwrapped
Ten of the best toddler toys at Kiddicare and 3 for 2 NOW
As your little one grows up, Christmas becomes even more special. Life-long traditions are started, excitement for the 25th December builds and the smile on their face when they realise they’ve been good and Santa has been will make your entire festive season.
In time for Christmas, Kiddicare is proud to reveal a brand new and exclusive range of toys for children from birth to five, including toys, games, puzzles and role-play activities to inspire and stimulate toddlers.
They’ll love the toys and you’ll love the savings – there’s 3 for 2* on all Kiddicare toys from the Buzzing Brains, Sunny Safari and Woodland ranges now.
Sarah Lafarge, shopping editor at the UK’s leading parenting magazine Mother&Baby, offers top tips to help you make the right toy choice for your toddler:
· Little ones love exploring their independence at this age and so they’ll love classic push-a-long toys that help them make use of their new skill of walking.
· Toys that encourage interactive play with buttons to press and noises to make, are great for learning to play solo or with new friends.
· At this age, role-play really comes into its own. Your child will enjoy playing house or cooking in their toy kitchen just like Mummy and Daddy.
· Make learning fun. Look out for toys with letters and numbers incorporated to encourage recognition.
· Musical toys will delight them and performances to their family and friends will boost your child’s confidence.

I was looking for a list like this for some time. I completely agree with the ‘make learning fun’ part. Toys should be a part of kids learning process and not merely tools of entertainment.
