With lockdown rolling on and the weather getting even colder, we're all staying indoors and trying not to go slowly insane!
We've stocked up on the craft supplies, baked almost every day, got home schooling nailed (kind of!), but sometimes we forget to just let them get lost in their own imagination. So we've compiled a list of our favourite toys for imaginative play!
1. Little Dutch's coffee machine, because we all miss sitting down with a flat white and a slice of cake. This cute machine is perfect for any budding barista, and includes five flavours of coffee pods: lungo, cappuccino, latte macchiato, coffee and espresso. So they can get practicing for all those post-lockdown coffee shop visits!
2. Meri Meri Suitcase Doll: Bunny, we love all of Meri Meri's suitcase dolls and this bunny is just perfect for a sweet Easter gift (full of chocolate alternatives over here!). With her little shopping bag and carrots, this easter bunny is perfect for little minds with big imaginations!
3. Maileg... all of it! Okay we couldn't pick a favourite haha. The Maileg mice and accessories are a whole miniature world of cute waiting to be discovered. The perfect tactile toys for little hands, and have you seen the Summer holiday mice? Start your collection with favourites like the Twins in Matchbox or Superhero mouse!
4. Konges Sløjd Beauty Set, bring the beauty salon home with this gorgeous wooden beauty set from Konges Sløjd. This little set provides hours of entertainment, just line up their dolls for a special pamper day and let them play!
5. Little Dutch's Market Stall, another pick from Little Dutch, but this market stall is new in and we're obsessed! Featuring soft fruit and veg in their own crates, a fabric awning and a little chalkboard for writing their special offers; it's prettier than any real farmers market we've ever been to! Pair with the Little Dutch cash register and coffee machine for a truly authentic Sunday morning experience.
