Children seem to have loads of toys these days. We may be living in a recession, but cheap, plastic toys are still pretty easy to come by for most of us. The giant toy stores are already offering special deals to tempt us through their doors. I find a lot of these toys a bit depressing, they just don’t seem to last for more than 5 minutes before they get broken. I’ve been trawling the web today looking for some lovely gifts that I would have liked as a little girl – here are some of my favourites! They don’t break the bank as they are all under £10
Perfect for helping Mummy and Daddy with the garden. This lovely watering can is only £9.95 from The Handpicked Collection
I love this bead kit. It comes in a gorgeous little case that my daughter could find a million uses for when the beads are all gone! At £9 I think this is very good value. Available from Notonthehighstreet.com
How sweet is this?! Ooh, I want one too please….£8.99 from The Gifted Penguin
We got one of these for Lily last year. She was four and I did wonder if a water bottle would get much of a reaction from her but she LOVED it! £8.50 from Cox and Cox
I love the sea-horse handle on this umbrella. Very, very cute! I think we might have to ask Santa for one of these. Available from Brollies Galore at £7.99
