This boys gifts edit is a mix of toys currently on our boys’ Christmas wish lists (skateboard x 2, globe and Tegu); tried and tested toys (cash register and this Fujifilm Instax Mini camera (don’t forget the all-important film) which we bought for Bailey last year and is still loved and well used) and things we know our boys will like. We’re just as picky about the toys that our kids have as the clothes they wear and apply the same criteria when we’re considering what to buy: is it value for money, will it be well used and of course does it look good (well, as much as any toys can). Other toys that Santa would be allowed to deliver include this Flatout Frankie cardboard plane (if, like Marlow, you know any little boys who are obsessed with making things from cardboard boxes); this Lexon radio (shower-proof = kid proof); this Corby Tindersticks interactive clock; and, for mini-Hestons, this John Lewis wooden kitchen.

ps: if you’re going down the skateboard route (as Santa is for Bailey and Marlow), you probably want to think about these too…
