Our top five favourites for a second birthday

Children love to dress up and children love sticking things to things, so what could be more perfect than this fabulous gift ?   Mix and match the characters and costumes to create some crazzyyy combinations. 

Portable Dolls House from Haba
Wonderful fabric dolls house from Haba, the perfect home  for Lotta and all her friends.  Comes complete with wardrobe and hangers for the gorgeous range of Haba dolls clothes sets.  Folds up so easy to take on any trips to Grannies or sleepovers. What 2 year old wouldn’t love this ?

Homecubes from Djeco
Beautiful toy which will keep children occupied for hours.  They will love to stack and create little homes for the little characters.

Old MacDonald Had a Farm Song Masks
All the 2 year olds that we know just love to sing and one of the classic favourites is, of course, Old MacDonald had a Farm.   This set of 9 masks is perfect for use at home where children can put on the right mask for the right verse, but they are also perfect for nursery and pre-school settings where each child can have their own mask.  Love it, and at just £5.95, brilliant value for money.

Why not add some accompany the song, with the Big Sound Workshop from Haba, a gorgeous set of musical instruments from Haba.

Finally, from around the age of 2, there are some fabulous games which can be introduced.  Games such as Rainbow Whirls and Little Pegging Garden are simple but beautiful wooden games and are perfect for free play while building important skills.    Introduce simple game rules and turn taking skills with games such as My First Game: Shapes & Colours (or Feeling & Touching) or My First Orchard Game
