Halloween is over and let’s roll on the festive season!
With it comes all the flurry of thinking about what presents aka kids toys to buy your children, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and grandchildren. So I thought I would help out over the next few weeks and give you some ideas with my gift guides, as we build up to Christmas 2015 ( 7 weeks + and counting, just thought I would add that in for some shock value!).
I also decided this year I would try to stick to a budget of sorts and this week’s gift guide has a range of toys for babies as young as 3 months to kids 4+ years and they are all under AUS $100.00. With many gifts under $50.00 and with many toys handmade, these are classic toys that can be passed down through generations.
Please check them out and support handmade and small this Christmas.
