Christmas Toddler Toys.. pint-sized home
Toys for boys and girls to enjoy ‘let’s pretend’ games for creative, imaginative play
Imaginative play often begins with little children acting out the things they see adults do. By around two years they may even want to mimick these acts alongside you as a way of spending time with you when they can see you are busy.
Making lunch for teddies or sweeping up can mean a lot to your child. From chunky plastic kitchen gadgets to chic wooden recreations, it’s easier than ever for little ones to enjoy playing ‘let’s pretend’.
NOTE: Many sets state they are suitable for 3+ due to the small parts, but if you feel confident playing with these alongside your children before this age, that is your decision – just be mindful of smaller pieces and the dangers of choking.

This plastic kitchen is perfect for little budding cooks, and is a long time favourite from the Early Learning Centre.

Let your child join you in the kitchen with this gorgeous baking set. From the play mixer, bowl and rotating whisk, to the sliceable Velcro swiss roll and cake stand, this set covers every step of the baking process – except the mess! A lovely gingham apron is also included to keep those imaginary spills at bay.
