A Few of his Favourite Toys

With the Toddler's second birthday approaching,
the quest to find the best gift began.

There's nothing better than quality toys,
made from natural materials,
with a distinct educational value.
Happily, the child in the house agrees.

So, here we present the heroic toys
that suffered countless hours 
of banging, drooling over and fun.

Favourite Toys, A Mum in London

The Baby Walker, Plan Toys

He likes: As a baby, he played a lot with the blocks 
 and had hours of fun knocking down the towers we made. 
As a toddler, he loves building towers 
and puts his teddy bear in the walker for a walk in the house. 

Favourite Toys, A Mum in London

I like: The wooden material, the nice colours 
and the fact that you can tidy up the blocks really easily. 
I have also lots of fun building Jenga-like towers. 

The Racing Car, Oskar and Catie

He likes: As a baby, he was over the moon 
when we'd help him ride it fast in the kitchen. 
Now he's an independent toddler, 
he loves riding his car and taking it for a quick spin.

Favourite Toys, A Mum in London

I like: The classic, retro look that makes this toy a heirloom. 
And that it looks so nice in our living room. 

The Musical Box, Natures et Découvertes

He likes: As a baby, he loved banging the maracas
on the xylophone and listen to his dad playing the flute 
(I suspect the neighbours didn't enjoy that much Mr K's recitals). 
As a toddler, he still enjoys banging on the xylophone 
and he's so proud when he gets 
some decent notes come out of the flute. 

Favourite Toys, A Mum in London

I like: the quality materials and the fact 
that he became familiar with musical instruments 
and sounds while having fun. 

The Doudou, Zara Home Kids

He likes: When he was 5 months old, 
he chose this little rabbit for his comforter.
Doudou is a friend and companion
during naps & bedtime,
and soothes him when he's too tired or upset.

I like: this is a cute little rabbit that has helped us a lot
through teething, tantrums and flights.
It survived a decapitation and one amputation.
It's his most favourite toy,
and that's what makes it irreplaceable.

  1. A lovely bunch, but I do love the racing car in particular! :)

  2. That racing car is magnificent. My only advice with regards to toys (if your son is like mine) - sturdy and durable :)

    1. That's a good piece of advice, thank you, Orli!

  3. I love the musical instruments! I recently brought L some shakers and really want to build her collection. She is nearly 4 months old when did your little boy start playing with the whole range?

    Popped over from My Best Post of the Week. I have linked up as Life and Times of Mummy Morkus with my Autumn Book Round Up!

    1. Hi, Rhiannon! He started playing with all of them when he was one+. At first banging them and then trying to get notes out of them. He likes them a lot and we have really fun concerts in the house!
