With Christmas fast approaching,
the pressure is on to find
beautiful, fun, educational toys.
This year it's the first time
the Toddler impatiently awaits Santa's visit;
so double the pressure
as I cannot let him down
after all the stories he has heard
about his new idol (the nice Papa-Noël).
After spending hours (yes, hours)
browsing Argos's online catalogue,
here are my top three contenders
for a place under our Christmas tree.
The Thomas & Friends Railway Set
Having blissfully navigated through the boat-phase,
the Toddler is now deep in the train-phase.
He absolutely loves everything choo-choo,
so this makes this railway starter set
ideal for a Christmas present.
I really like the wooden material
and the simplicity of the design.
Plus, Thomas trains are so cute.
With a toddler seeking
more and more independence,
what would be better
than a brand new, shiny scooter?
I really like the fact that a scooter
would help the Toddler gain more confidence
and give him the independence he's craving for.
Plus, all the kids at the park have one.
The Disney Book Collection
Our son is a big bookworm.
He adores books and will spend hours
flipping through the pages
and looking at the images.
I really like this set. It has everything:
five books with sounds, pop-ups, light-up images,
(i.e. all the stuff toddlers find amazing),
mini books (perfect for the car/pram)
and a Mickey plush toy to hug.
Plus, it comes in a big box,
which would look perfect under the tree.
The final dream toys 2013 list will be available here.
