Gotta Have It

Child's birthday on the horizon? Check out these options for quality, wooden personalised toys

Wooden farm set, £29.99 or £34.99 personalised

When I was in infant school I remember feeling like the bee’s knees for having a set of pencils with my name in gold on them.

Personalised gifts for children have come a long way since then and now there’s a huge range of toys and keepsakes that can be emblazoned with names and messages.

Wooden toddler bike, £49.99, or £54.99 personalised

Toddler’s wooden activity house, £29,99 or £34.99 personalised

Harmony at Home eco boutique in Worthing – a previous Muddy Awards finalist, which sells toys, clothing and more – has a particularly wide choice of lovely quality wooden gifts that can be personalised – from play farms to swings and scooters. And if you don’t live locally, you can order them all online.

Wooden pull along tractor, £19.99 or £24.99

Simply select the personalised option when you order and you’ll get a chance to add your message.

Baby’s first swing, £26.99 or £37.99 personalised

They’re a great idea for birthdays, Christenings, baby namings, baby showers and the like.

Wooden Noah’s Ark, £34,99, or £39.99 with personalisation

I love wooden toys because they have something more solid and permanent and well crafted about them amid today’s plastics. Plus frankly, they’re less likely to snap or get bitten in half by wee ones. Harmony at Home also works hard to source sustainable products.

Unicorn money box, 12.99 or £17,99 personalised

My first keepsake box, £12.50 – £17.50

T shirts, bibs books, Xmas tree decorations, doctor play sets, chess sets, jewellery boxes and the like can also have names added.

Animal stacking game – £12,99 or £17.99 personalised

If you’re buying in the shop itself there’s even a free wrapping service (and a play table for keeping your own ankle biters amused).
