If you love beautiful, well designed, stimulating toys, then here are some ideas for Christmas gifts from our guest blogger Armineh from Tup Tup Toys:

Christmas is almost here… like it or not, it’s that time of year already. Personally, I like it. In fact, I love it: the planning, the surprises, the look of delight in my children’s eyes, when they bounce into our room on Christmas morning, beside themselves with excitement and happiness at the fact that Father Christmas has been!

This year, Christmas is that bit special – it’s our first Christmas at Tup Tup Toys and we’ve done all we can to put together what we think is a fantastic selection of toys for you to find that perfect gift.

For the Very Smallest Children
For babies we have a wonderful selection of very funky wooden rattles, like Toot Toot, by Haba. There´s also a great range of soft toys, including our colourful Discovery Cubes, an interactive experience with lots of little surprises.

Take a look at our popular range of charming cuddly animals by France’s premier maker of soft toys, Trousselier. We love the wonderfully cuddly pull-along dog– a delight for every toddler, sure to be much loved for years to come.

We also have a wide range of early learning toys to keep little ones amused for hours while developing essential skills. There are wooden toys to hammer, sort and bash; lacing kits to thread, such as “My First Tools” – great for boys and girls alike; floor Puzzles by Crocodile Creek, with themes from Dinosaurs, through Solar System, to Ocean Animals.

If you’re shopping for a Little Girl
I fully recommend our range of Jewellery and Accessories, by Haba. Take a look at our Amelie Bag. It´s the perfect size for little hands, and makes a colourful addition to any child’s wardrobe. We also have a wonderful selection of wooden jewellery, hair bands and jewellery cases that will be sure to delight. View our full range of Jewellery and Accessories here

For when the weather’s not so good
And if the weather’s not great, there’s plenty to keep little hands busy indoors! Take a look at our fantastic range of arts and crafts kits for children of all ages. Each kit is packed with lots to do, and can be brought out again and again.

We have a wonderful selection of painting by number kits that have proven great value for money with four pictures in each set to colour and two picture frames to display your works of art afterwards. Our activity kits have also proven very popular, with My Tissue Art and Paint a Zoo a great favourite for younger children.

Fantastic Stocking Fillers
And, importantly at this time of year, we have put special thought into those little extras which add the perfect touch to Christmas morning: we have chosen some very funky Bead Bags by Bead Bazaar – a wonderful assortment of different shades, shapes and sizes of pink wooden beads, for making your own jewellery. From Adventurers to budding artists, we have some great ideas and essentials to put a smile on their face – take a look here for our full range.
