Wooden Toys Wish List

A collage of fabulous wooden toys for baby and toddler boys - including a fabulous fire engine ride on from Halfords, Grimms conical rainbow stacker and a Bajo wooden mouse and Gruffalo figures - Wooden toys wish list for baby and toddler boys - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Mister and Little Miss H have a lot of toys. But without doubt my favourite are their wooden toys. These are the toys that are enduring classics. They are the toys that they play with over and over again and that fire their imagination. They are also safer for them as wooden toys tend not to have any nasty chemicals.

I was worried about how apprehensive I was beginning to…

Includes the blog post title "Nursery inspiration for small rooms: Little Mister H's rainbow themed nursery" _ Mrs H's favourite things

Little Mister H is due in July. And when he arrives his nursery will occupy the smallest room in the house. At the moment, this room is a glorified dumping ground.

But when the sofa bed is open there isn't enough room to close the bedroom door. We are going to have to use…
