Top Five Toys Your Baby Will Love
1 Meet Bibi the sheep. Named ‘Bibi’ after the Timoreese term for sheep, this is the perfect gift for a little one. Not only the are little sheep adorable, but the story behind them is remarkable.
In 2016, the brand Mana Sira was born as a way of connecting the Timorese women to a market which they would not otherwise have had access to. Mana Sira translates to ‘sisters’ in Tetum and works with a collective of Timorese women who create beautiful artisan crochet pieces.
With their love for design, creativity and crochet, four close friends from Newcastle, Australia began teaching a group of Timorese women in Timor-Leste basic crochet skills with the aim of creating an opportunity for them to become financially self sufficient through an income-generating project.

2 We think these Wooden Light ‘Watermelon’ Bowling Pins are great for baby and great for Mum (Dad and the whole family..). They’re made of natural wood and have six hand-painted solid birch wooden bowling pins. Even the ball is made of wood! Hand-painted with water based paint and sealed with a non toxic sealant finish. They are super safe for babies.
Perfect for little hands to play with or simply sitting in the nursery looking beautiful. They have been vigorously tested by little hands and as they are made from a solid hardwood they do not dent, or get marked if bitten. All sets are hand made to order in the UK

4 When we saw these Kiko & Usagi Rabbit Rattles, we couldn’t resist them. Such a simple, beautiful and creative toy for little hands. Gently push the rabbit to create a mesmerizing swaying motion and a calming bell chime sound which will help any baby to relax into a nap. Which is what we all want!
Check out the unique little trade mark dots above the bunny’s tail… modeled on Kukkia’s real in-house pet rabbits! You can find these little gems at Hello Little Birdie.

5 Teethers aren’t meant to be beautiful, they are meant to stop the screaming! But this wonderfully safe and gorgeous teether from Loulou Lollipop Finery is just that, beautiful. The wood and silicone together provide two different textures for the baby to teeth, chew and gnaw. The maple wood is unfinished and is a kind of hard wood safe for teething. Hand made in Vancouver, Canada the teether provides visual and tactile stimulation for babies. It has a soft texture that is great for sore, teething gums.
