Work it, baby
During the mad last minute hunt for Xmas gifts my husband and I both independently picked out treats from the fab selection of store-brand toys at John Lewis, my favourite London department store. This range of toys for babies and pre-schoolers includes classics like wooden puzzles and building blocks, as well as more modern stuff like musical mobile phones and a radio controlled 4x4 jeep. If your baby's at the building and banging stage, he'll love the John Lewis workbench. It features a hammer, spanner, nuts, wrench, bolts, screwdriver and other tools to keep your little handyman happily bashing away for hours. This toy encourages manual dexterity and learning through imaginative play and will probably set your baby up for a lifetime of DIY obsession. UK deliveries only.
