We will be there showcasing our eco friendly toy ranges and reusable products.
I get asked a lot for recommendations for baby toys and I struggle to answer to be honest because I don't really think babies need 'toys'.
Before a baby can sit unassisted, hold something steady in their hand and pass it between each hand they are not really ready for toys as such, and certainly don't need a lot of money spent to entertain them.

We recently set about creating some book inspired art.
