Two of our son's favourite playthings are a spinning top and a wooden push-along bear that plays the drum when you roll its wheels. It's worth hunting in your local knick-knack shop or humble toy store for great deals on similar old school toys. You can also find a fantastic range of traditional toys at Tish Tash Toys, from push and pull-alongs to dollhouses and finger puppets. If you want to mix classic and modern in true hype baby fashion, get your toddler his own private jet. The Pintoy Aeroplane is a wooden ride-on that comes with full steering, spinning propeller and 360 degree castors at the rear. Suitable from 18 months. Tish Tash Toys are based in North Yorkshire but deliver internationally. Check the web site for more details.
