The $40 gift that's genius for the toddler who's obsessed with transport and languages.

The $40 gift that's genius for the toddler who's obsessed with transport and languages.

Toddlers are notoriously fussy creatures.

I should know – I have one called Leo who is 21 months old, and big brother Toby, now eight years old, also used to be one.

I have nine nieces and nephews of varying ages and plenty of friends with kids. That’s a whole lot of Christmas and birthday presents I’ve had to find over the years, and it can be hard work sourcing an original gift for an under-three… especially when I’ve seen how my own boys treat their toys first hand. So many lovingly chosen gifts tossed aside in preference of the cardboard box it came in, or a biscuit. Ouch!

This problem is compounded if you are buying for a tot with siblings – they literally have EVERYTHING. Leo has plenty of Toby’s old toys, yet this Christmas we still want to give him one special gift that’s educational and fun and NOT a hand-me-down.
