When I recently read the list of top 10 most wanted toys, as picked by Hamleys, Amazon, and Toys R Us over at the The Time’s Alpha Mummy blog, I felt nervous! Elmo Live (OK he is cute but still…), the Chou Chou â€˜My first toothâ€™ doll, Dance with me Tellytubby, and In The Night Garden Upsy Daisy and Her Bed. Three out of four are off the telly and each one makes noise!
Fortunately, for several weeks we have been turning over many a stone in search of toys and general gifts to wow your preschooler with.
We’ll be covering 0-1, 1-2, 2-3, and 3-4 years. No bambino has been left uncatered for, there’s hot buys to suit every taste and we cover everything from soft toys, to pretend play, to dolls houses, to dolls (seriously, not one of the dolls we’ve found has to wee or cry), doll prams and pushchairs, walkers, rockers, bikes, trikes, and more.
Updated 1st December 2008: We have changed the format and you can now access the toy list right here.
