Educational Toys for Children Gift Ideas
With Christmas just around the corner, high on many shopping lists will be gift ideas for children. With the demise of the traditional toy shop, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to source top quality, traditional toys, especially toys made from wood. At EYR we spend many hours sourcing the best, high quality educational resources for schools, nurseries and childminders, and have realised that many of our toys would make perfect Christmas gifts for little ones. We have beautiful wooden toys (heirlooms of the future) for children of all ages. Here are a few team favourites.
