A baby's first Christmas is particularly memorable and while your baby won’t remember the day, you and your family definitely will!
Christmas provides the perfect opportunity for extended family to meet bub or just to spend a lovely relaxed day with family and friends.
We fondly look back at picture’s of first trips to see Santa and opening presents Christmas day. There’s nothing quite like it!
As magical as it is though, picking out a gift for your baby's first Christmas present can be a bit tricky. Especially with their main hobby's being crying and sleeping!
We spoke with Nicola from Maling Road Toyshop who shared her top picks for a baby’s first Christmas.
1. Brio My First Railway Battery Set
The perfect first train set, Brio's My First Railway is beautifully made and will be treasured in years to come.
Great for small hands, watch the train as it moves by itself as you build the track together with your baby.
2. Janod Hen Activity House
Created from FSC wood and water painted, the Hen Activity House has a load of surprises just waiting for you and bub to discover!
Great for your baby's development, help find the right hole for all your bits and pieces.
Best of all, everything packs up inside the house and is easy to carry with the attached handle - perfect for a sleepover at granny's!
3. Corolle Miss Pink & Blanket
The perfect first doll, your bub and Miss Pink will soon become inseparable!
Miss Pink is a delightful 9.5-inch first doll with a soft body that’s ideal for hugging and cuddling.
The sweet expression on her smooth vinyl face — delicately scented with vanilla, a Corolle signature — will charm and soothe little ones.
4. Tolo Jungle Bowling
Start learning animals and colours early with this great jungle set.
Great for developing coordination, pass them the ball and see if they can knock the pins over. Use encouraging language to guide them into doing this.
5. Petit Collage – Jumping Jumbo Elephant
A gorgeous toy that will last years to come and be enjoyed at all stages of development. Watch as the elephant jumps up and down and sways his wiggly ears as you pull him by the cord.
Jumping Jumbo is perfect for development of motor skills and coordination.
Handmade from sustainably harvested wood, the Made of FSC certified plywood and featuring gorgeous bright colours.
