If they like to be out and about exploring the creepy crawlies in the garden, your little one might love a pair of their own binoculars.

Perfect for seeking out wildlife, they’re a must-have for any budding young explorer.

Craft kits are a great way to nurture your child’s creativity, giving them all the tools and equipment they need to go and make whatever they want.

Doll’s Pram – TBA from Play Like Mum

Having their own doll to look after and play with is a great way for children to learn independence and responsibility, so why not treat them to a top of the range pram too, just like the one mum and dad use?

Photo Booth Props - £3.99 from Party Delights

Now that they’ve got hold of phones and tablets, kids love messing around and taking selfies, but instead of using their favourite filters, why not give them some fun, physical props to use too, for some silly photos which you’ll be able to share with all your friends?

Foam Swords - £8.49 from Amazon

Sometimes, kids just need to get all of that pent up energy out in a big old play-fight, so at least you can make sure that nobody’s going to get hurt with a set of soft foam swords and shields.

Puzzles are always a great way to get the old grey matter working for children, and there’s a reason that the Rubik’s Cube is such a classic!
