Hot Trend: Dachshunds

Like owls, dachshunds are huge news for kids’ products. We’ve already featured Offi’s MyPetLamp Dachshund Light – here are a few more of our favourite buys.

Sausage Dog by Lipfish

I love the unusual toy designs by Lipfish (of amoeba rattle fame) and Max the black velour sausage dog is no exception. Who could resist those doe eyes? Buy your little one a friend for life for £21 from Stork Gifts.

The Brio dachshund is a design classic – the pull-along toy rendered in sleek black wood with snazzy yellow ears and red wheels was first produced in 1953. The best price I found for the small dog was £4.99 at The Active Toy Company, surprisingly, John Lewis came out on top for the large one at £39.95

Manuella’s Picnic long dog

Prize for most versatile dachshund goes to Manuella’s Picnic’s Long Dog – a towelling pillow that can be used for breastfeeding, as a sitting support for baby or a cool toy/cushion for a nursery. Not cheap at £95, but with so many uses I’m sure you can justify the expense. Take your pick from grey or red at Nubie.

Actually, you could feasibly theme a child’s room around dachshunds – You Are Constance’s bright print is a great start at $20, while Naked Decor’s acrylic clock is a great piece in its own right (£54.99 from Hunky Dory Home), but even better in conjunction with the matching cushions, $39.95 each from Etsy.

If you’re looking to dress the part, try one of these funky baby vests by BellaBluDesigns for $24. Urban Elk’s Doggie Dress, £32.99, is super-cute in a smart but casual way; Ej Sikke Lej’s Doggy Summersuit, £18.99, is perfect for balmy summer days. Top it all off with a pair of the softest leather shoes by No Added Sugar – £18 from Funky Moose.
