Christmas is coming, so we thought we'd share a few top picks from our toy shop (and a very special offer for you to use this weekend...)
From Japanese dolls to soft toy sloths; racing cars to racing rabbits, we're pretty sure you'll find something sweet for those special little people in your life.
First up are these amazing Woodland Dolls (above). The dolls were first made in Japan in the 70s, and are still being made there today thanks to Lapin & Me, who found the factory and asked them to start producing them again. Available in 4 zingy colours (as well as a lovely soft grey and cream colour), they make fun little companions AND cool and original shelf accessories when play is over.
Little Roar Head and Little Unicorn Head have come to us all the way from New Zealand. Made from printed cardboard, simply unfold them, add a wooden pole or broom handle and off you fly! Hours of imaginary play - after all, who doesn't dream of riding a unicorn (or a dino, for that matter).
We love this pic for so many reasons - Annabel Afghan and Stripy Reindeer camping out in their very own Toy Tent whilst Enzo the Dog and Rick the Rabbit get ready to go with their go-faster neon stripes!
Bath time isn't just about bubbles... These water toys by NYC brand KidO are some of the best we've seen. Our smart little Tug Boat comes with a removable life ring and is the perfect size for rescuing toy animals that are lost at sea / in the bath / in the pool, whilst Floating Whale bobs along happily beside it. Pour and Spin Submarine is a construction and water toy all rolled into one... First you build it, then you blow bubbles, spin the wheel and make it rain!
And whilst we are on the subject of boats and vehicles, don't forget to check out our range of Playforever Toys - designed right here in the UK to be virtually indestructible and handed down through the generations. We are proud to be one of the few online shops to be stocking them!
Our Machi Wooden Town by Japanese brand Kiko+ is such a fun toy. With two magnetic chalkboards and a whole host of simple wooden shapes including trees, buildings, cars and even Mount Fuji itself, children can design and re-design their very own town, time and time again.
Sleepy-Wakey Bambi by Danish brand Maileg is so adorable - first she's asleep, then flip her over to wake her up! Made from beautifully soft corduroy and knitted fabrics with embroidered features and a pretty lace collar, she's every little one's favourite bed time and day time companion.
If you're looking for stocking fillers, then why not adopt one or two of these amazing wooden dinosaurs? Brontosaurus and his friends are lovingly made and hand-painted in Europe - and just like the Woodland Dolls, make fun little toys AND fab little shelf accessories. Which is mostly why we love them so much.
So, there's a taster of our toy treasures - but make sure you check out the rest of our toy collection ready for the holiday season!
To celebrate our launch (and help you with a bit of Christmas shopping), we are offering an amazing 15% off EVERYTHING in our entire collection all weekend, using code BLACKRABBIT at checkout. But hurry - the offer expires at midnight on Monday 30th November.
Happy shopping and happy weekend all x
