Do away with modern tech and try these wooden toys for Christmas instead.

Sometimes old school is best. So why not give your little ones these great wooden toys this Christmas and watch their faces light up. 

Personalised London Bus – £45

This is quintessentially British and would make a wonderful gift for a girl or a boy. A beautifully bright red wooden toy bus with an abundance of authentic details, it’s based on the iconic London buses. Your little ones will have hours of imaginative play with this classic toy, and it can be personalised with up to five characters for a unique touch.

Grimm’s Rainbow – £22.96

Carved from a single piece of lime wood and using non-toxic staining, these six rainbow blocks can be used in a myriad of ways – as tunnels and bridges for cars, cots for baby dolls, animal shelters or farm fences. They can also be balanced on top of one another to build amazing sculptures.

Personalised Pull Along Train – £40

Little ones will have hours of fun with this wonderfully colourful pull along train. Finished off with a bright red pull string, your children can amuse themselves at any opportunity by chugging this choo-choo along behind them. And there’s a little building block surprise in the carriage in a variety of shapes and colours just waiting to be stacked.

Chad Valley Wooden Mud Kitchen – £100

The Chad Valley Wooden Mud Kitchen is a great way for your child to get stuck in at playtime. It gives them all they need for some imaginative role-play. The set comes with a hob, two sinks, an oven and play utensils.

Personalised Wooden Stroller – £65

This is a wonderful wooden stroller and a perfect gift to get them walking about with confidence. Made from solid, lightweight wood with smooth wheels and a chalkboard on the front that can be decorated by a budding artist, this is a fantastic present that serves a useful purpose as well as bringing hours of amusement. They can toddle around collecting all of their toys en route, and will love it even more if you personalise it for free.
