Pssst! We've got Elf On The Shelf!
Stock has just landed and this popular advent toy won't last long. Haven't heard of it before? These little guys are becoming a holiday staple for families during Christmas, with daily creative moments of setting him up around the house guaranteed to put smiles on your kids' faces! Yes, it's a challenge to keep coming up with Elf on the Shelf ideas for the entire month of December, but here's a link to some creative ideas to consider if you get stumped — our little present to you.

It should come as no surprise that Bikes are a perennial favourite under the Christmas tree! These days they come in all shapes and sizes, with and without pedals! We stock an incredible range of brands and can personally vouch for their quality and craftsmanship. Checkout some examples below, including Kinderfeets, Wishbone and Cruzee, and see our whole range in-store or online.
Cruzee Balance Bikes open up a whole new world of fun and exercise for you and your child. Inspiring freedom and independence and helping your child become mobile and active at an astonishingly early age. Even a small trip around the block is a big adventure for a 2-year-old on a Cruzee. Cherish every moment with your toddler as you watch your child’s confidence grow while creating a strong bond between you that will last a lifetime.
Possibly the most beautiful 2-in-1 balance bike and trike you've ever seen, manufactured from lacquered bamboo wood (with super cute basket accessories available too!).
Kinderfeets Tiny Tots Trikes is the smallest 2-in-1 balance bike on the market. One year olds can start with the Tiny Tot as a trike. With three wheels they can learn how to use their feet to get moving. When a parent feels the child is ready, the Tiny Tot converts easily from a trike to a 2-wheel balance bike.
Patented Dutch inspired, low, step-through frame which places children's feet closer to the ground so they feel safe. Extra wide base and 7-inch tires for great driving comfort and easy balance. Adjustable, cushioned seat. Height 22.8 to 29.2cm. Handle bar grips feature hand protection bumpers. Easy to convert from a tricycle to a 2-wheel balance bike! For children from 12 to 24 months.
Made from sustainably-harvested birch and eucalyptus wood, non-toxic glues and finishes, and recycled packaging. The unique "wishbone" frame can be flipped, and with an adjustable seat height of 28-46cm/11-18 inches, Wishbone Bike is one smallest and the tallest balance bikes on the market - all in one!
Converts to a 3in1 with the addition of a Wishbone Trike Kit (sold separately). Described as best-in-category, Wishbone Bike exceeds European, US and Australian toy safety standards, and is suitable from approx 18months-5years.
PRAMS FOR EVERYONE!
These guys have created a toy that performs two popular play functions. The Kinderfeets Pram is both a baby walker and a traditional doll's pram. It's the perfect way to get babies comfortable taking their first steps. Once they've perfected walking, the pram's stabilising pegs can be removed turning the walker into a dedicated pram. Featuring large retro-style wheels for easy manoeuvring and rubber trim to protect floors, it's made from birchwood and fits dolls and other cuddly friends up to 35cm.
We love it when children role play and act out various experiences they may have had or something that is of some interest to them. They experiment with decision-making, how to behave and also practise their social skills. So for children who love to imagine, check out the kitchens, tree house and Giant Noah's Ark below!
