Expert Tip

Toys that will outlive the latest playground craze

Young children are under a lot of pressure to fit in, so many will be after the latest playground craze this Christmas. Toys that can give a sense of achievement, like crafts and puzzles, will be more than five-minute wonders and will develop confidence too. Anything that can be customised will also let them show off their own personal style.
