It’s Christmas present shopping time again and as my little ones get older, their wish lists change (and grow!) along with their age.
So, here are some of our favourite buys this year for 4 and 5 year old boys and girls. We hope you like them and find it useful.
What will be in your little one’s stocking this year..?

This really unique doll has an age realistic body shape and makes an inspiring roll model for young children. Lottie comes with her fossil finding tools, a map, backpack, hat, Ammonites and a collection of cards about her favourite female scientists including Mary Anning and the Natural History Museum’s own Dorothea Bate.

There’s also activity book add ons to insert (including a Thank You Card making kit – hurrah!) that mean that the case will always have interest for little ones.
Having been away on holiday this year and packed mountains of bits and bobs to take with us to keep my two amused, this is such a brilliantly neat solution. These would make a fantastic gift for little ones, that the parents will thank you for too!
