All children learn, so do adults!
So how do Toy companies selling or manufacturing Toys promote those toys in a gender-balanced presentation, that guides parents and children on the principles of open play. Read More
Children spend perhaps 3,500 hours per year in each others company. Likely more time than spouses spend with each other. However, we as adults try coping mechanisms to reduce our rows and quarrels and to manage the fallout when they inevitably take place. How can we help build similar approaches for our kids?
I would like to recommend my favourite toys for Christmas! These are toys that will stand the test of time and inspire children to be creative. Most of them are wooden toys as I think they offer a lovely touchy/feely experience. They do not make any noise, which leaves it up to the child to make something out of it! this can only encourage imagination and creativity. My top toys are the toys
For the past 14 years, I have offered a range of good quality, entertaining, unique and mostly wooden toys. I don’t really propose a range of heavily branded toys or plastic toys.
My passion and interest is to source creative toys for all ages that can encourage children’s development and well-being. I haven’t started to think Christmas yet, however, as a parent of 4 children, it is in the back of my mind.

Sometimes I feel I focus too much on how...
I like Sundays.
Sunday is what I call "family day", no friends over, no phone, no computer, just us. It sounds head wrecking with 4 children (aged 8,10,16 and 17) but it actually is a day that the whole family looks forward to.
There is so much going on during the week and Saturdays that Sunday is a real "cosy" day!
We are into games and board games. However, I am the one who initially pushed it because it can be done sitting down!
