Christmas Toddler Toys.. books

Electronic gadgetry, touch-page interactive elements, colours, lights, tunes and quirky colouring-in all feature in some of the loveliest books for pre-schoolers.

Giving regular picture books is always a wonderful idea, but if you want to get a book that doubles as a toy then you might find interactive books a great way to keep toddlers amused in small spaces (eg on car or train journeys), as well as providing an opportunity for early literacy and numeracy challenges.
