Best playset for toddlers

Choo! Choo! Any small train fans will love playing with Thomas & Friends. This wonderful set includes Knapford Station, track, bridge and push-along Thomas train with a passenger car. 
Review: "I bought this product a month ago, and my son has not stopped playing with it. It's really fun for him. He loves that you can change the carriage to either show people or monkeys. He also loves that you can change the track around. It can be a bit fiddly at times, but not a major inconvenience. When he has finished playing, you can break it all down and fit it inside the carry case. So doesn't take up a lot of room. The only thing I would say is when all the parts are inside - the doors keep opening so bits can fall out."

Best dolls for toddlers

According to Importance of Play, a study conducted by Barbie® and a team of neuroscientists explore the positive impact doll play has on children. It brought to light new evidence that doll play activates brain regions that allow children to develop empathy and social information processing skills, even when playing by themselves.

What better reason to treat your baby to a present than helping them develop? And these Kindi Kids are totally adorable.
