This is the first of my Christmas Gift Ideas Posts for 2016 and it is all about the Toddlers aimed for ages 1-2 years. I remember it well when Molly-May and Finn where at that toddler stage between 1 and 2 years trying to learn and grow and they got fascinated about so many things it’s a pure joy to watch! Now that i am an aunty to a 12 month old gorgeous boy I am back (with some more experience this time round) to finding this little one the perfect presents to give this christmas, luckily he has 2 very generous cousins who are more than keen to pass on their favourite toys to him to play with so in this list are manly the “classic” toys who my children have played with over the toddler years and a few exiting new releases too! I hope it will help you on your quest to find the right present for your little one this christmas!
