What child doesn't like a personalised book that's all about them?

The little girl who lost her name is an ideal gift for little ones that love story telling. This one tells the story of a child who has lost his or her name, and bravely sets off to track down the missing letters. Along the way, they meet a host of amazing characters, each one of which gives them a letter of their name. By the end of the story they've found their name  — and it's the name of the child reading the story.

Available from from £19.99.


Encourage creativity with this musical instrument gift set that includes: maracas, drum, bells, rattle, shaker and a play-along CD that parents can enjoy too.

Each instrument is finished in cheerful colours and they'll love the bright beads and inserts. Suitable from 12 months old, available from for £19.99.


Prince William and Kate's son Prince George loves driving around his country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, on his toy tractor. William also revealed last year that he is obsessed with "anything with wheels", so Princess Charlotte should also have her own set, so she can soon join her big brother.

This sturdy wooden trike with a friendly bunny face on the front is a fun gift.

It is a great way for the child to get exercise at the same time as having fun. Learning how to push themselves along helps your child develop the strength, balance and coordination they'll need for walking, running and cycling.

Available from for £35.00.
