The countdown has started: 4 more weeks before Christmas and the magic will start. I love the excitements of the kids reaction opening their presents. And I am even more delighted when I see them playing with their toys.
I am a great believer that playing helps children learn about the world, develop their language, imagination, problem-solving skills and sometimes even train their muscles. So providing them with the right toys for their age could be very beneficial.
Here is a selection of amazing toys that you could get on Tendre Deal Boutique.
Suitable from birth – first stage
1/ The rattle that will help your infant’s cognitive development
The Alphabet Rattle from Ebulobo is the perfect personalised newborn gift. It doesn’t not only stimulate baby with its different colours, materials, sounds but also soothes baby’s teething gums.
Those toys can be offered to Newborn but as the child grows he will learn how to use it differently and get the most out of it
2/ Myum handcrocheted fruits & veggies
Myum familiarises children with their Greens with a number hand-crafted soft toys in a vegetable and fruit shapes.
By playing with Myum, children should start loving their Fuits & Veggies and understand the benefits of a healthy diet. The baby will use it as a rattle and it will become an essential element of role play when the child gets older.
Myum also explains the Magic of Nature with the Reversible Fruits. See the transformation of that Strawberry and children will learn that before making a strawberry,
Nature must first produce a small flower which later will become their favourite red fruit.
3/ Multi-Activity toys that stimulate children’ senses by encouraging sight, touch, sound and movement. Ebulobo focus on the children’s development and their toys have so many elements that they will get a new dimension at each development stage. Each collection tells a story and we are fan of the new one “MyGiant”. This Giant is very similar to the BFG. He is an imaginary character who might look scary but in fact he is protective, gentle as a lamb and strong like a mountain. He is helping a little boy lost in the forest to get back home safely.
From 3 years Old…
Pretend play Toys are very important in children’s development as they help to improve their social skills, verbal skills and also physical development.

Let’s be the teacher with this Magic suitcase. Also very compact, you have all you need to practice your reading, writing and number skills. The magic drawing board, the letters, digits and signs magnets, the black & white chalkboards will make learning essential skills so much fun!
Creative Play is also very important as it helps children express and cope with their feelings. With Janod Watercolor cards, kids can start enjoying painting. Everything is in the box : the cards with lovely drawings and the mixer, pipettes, brush and paints to start expressing themselves and play with colours.
