  1. I already like you both! :)
    My son is getting a balance bike this year (shh don’t tell him) – it was £10 secondhand and is in the process of being pimped! He’s favourite present last year was probably the big duplo digger that my friend bought him. :)

  2. I’m entering! We love the M&D range!

    Already loved both the TRU and Edspire facebook pages.

    Our top toddler toy would be the Cookie Jar shape sorter! We both adore the Julie Andrews type voice that sings, and it has helped to teach The Boy his colours and shapes.

  3. great comp prize.
    my best buy is mega bloks classic bag
    my kids all love mega bloks or did when younger :)

  5. I have liked you FB page and the TRU one @Bobbity666

    I am not quite at toddler stage yet but I think play kitchens are a great idea for a toddler present and my older children have all had one – well Jamie Oliver had to start somewhere! :)

    Great competition @Bobbity666

  6. I am already following both the facebook pages.
    My best gift for a toddler would be a massive set of Duplo. So much fun, even my 10 and 11 year olds still play with it when the younger ones are playing!

  7. I already like you both on facebook!

    This teapot & cakes set is a great buy. I brought it for my daughter last Christmas (she had just turned one) and she loved playing with the shapes and listening to the music. She still really loves it now she’s turning 2 and has lots of fun making tea for her toys and force feeding me triangle cakes! ha ha! Older toddlers that have been round to play always head straight for this as well so it’s a few years fun! xxx

    Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

    My youngest daughter is getting Fur Real Cookie (a toy puppy that basically acts like a labrador puppy!!!) It is expensive at £114 but it is supposed to recognise her new owner’s voice and respond by moving her head, blinking and barking!!! Cute!!

  9. My little girl has been asking for the new fijit toys, I was a bit reluctant to buy one at first but got one on special offer and I have seen videos of them and they are totally hilarious, can’t wait to see her face when she gets it on Christmas day

  10. My best buy this christmas would have to be lots of Happy People sets by Fisher Price all from my friend for just £15. Im trying so hard to not give them to my daughter till christmas :-) to be honest there are so many bargins at christmas i think everyone finds one bargin or two but the younger the child the cheaper the christmas is :-) so my main bargin is the fact that my daughter is only 16 months old this year for christmas.

  11. forgot to say that a good gift for a toddler is any kind of building blocks suck as Megablocks/Lego-Its good for both girls and boys and stays with them for many years

  12. Gosh, I had to enter this, love Melissa and Doug toys! My best buy is in fact a Melissa And Doug piece – the learn to play piano. Though it’s actually for her birthday (on 23 December). I’m so excited!

  13. Thank you for the giveaway
    I have liked Edspire’s Facebook Page and the Toys R Us Facebook Page (Karen A Barrett)
    My best find/bargain is 2 vtech toys from their website massively reduced – a good start x

  14. like both on fb.

    one of my son’s fave toddler toys was a simple set of stacking cups, he played with them for hours and I’m getting some for his little sister for her first christmas this year :) sometimes it’s the simplest toys that are the biggest hit!

  15. I already like you both on Facebook (Rachie Littleme).

    My best buy for a toddler this Christmas would be any game from Orchard Toys! Shopping List and If you see a Crocodile are favourites in our household.

  16. Wow what a fab prize. I Like both pages. Poppy is after a dolls house and leappad this year and Rosie loves books and puzzles. Not done any shopping so looking for deals x

  17. Already a fan of both facebook pages x
    My little 2 year old would love anything Peppa Pig related (I have managed to find the classroom, car,rocket and house all 2nd hand from my local selling site so i will have one very happy little girl at xmas!) and my baby boy would go mad for a push along Thomas! :-)

  18. Liking both facebook pages and loving Melissa and Doug toys!!!
    I’m buying my daughter a clickety clack crocodile push along walker…it is extremely cute and the little crocodiles all snap away when it is pushed along.

  19. Hi,

    I’ve liked you both on Facebook =)

    My top buy this christmas are the Disney Cars themed mega bloks. Mega bloks hae always gone down a storm with our daughter who is now 5 and has moved on to lego, and my son who is 2 and just loves them. They are often on offer and make a loely Christmas present.

    Thanks and Fingers crossed! x

  20. I have many as have been bargin shopping since June.

    I think my favorite though is a huge Postman Pat playset than costs £30 , some silly person put it up on a website for £3 instead and the shop let us have it for £3 . I was impressed lol

  21. I think so far this year our best christmas buy for our little girl was the pretend food from toysrus its is velco together and comes witha little chopping board and pretend knife so she can pretend to chop things up and cook in her kitchen as she is always asking to “help mummy” its all wrapped and sent to santa lol!

    Love the prizes my daughter loves colouring and the picnic basket set is so cute i have done all of the above too x

    Cant wait till xmas : )

  22. have liked both fb-keiiy mitchell
    with both of my children the best gift they have received was shape sorters,challenging but good fun xx

  23. I have liked both facebook pages.

    I have bought my youngest the the AquaPlay 544 Multi Set from toys r us, because what toddlers don’t love water and its one they will grow into so get lots of use from! It was a bargain at £40 seeing as its now priced at £79.99, I bought it when it was £50 and then on the 20% off weekend, so everyone needs to keep an eye out for those bargain weekend! :) x

  24. I like both Edspire and Toys r Us on Facebook.

    My best recommendation for toddlers is anything from the Fisher Price Little People range. They are fantastic at encouraging imaginative play, a bright, colourful and perfectly safe and my little one spends hour upon hour playing with all her sets.

  25. I haven’t started christmas shopping yet but my best buy last year was the sit and learn chair. My daughter still uses it and my neices and nephews younger then her use it also. This year i’m going to buy the Iteddy, I love leap frog toys for their learning and intereaction.

  26. Hi x
    My best buy this Christmas for my 5month old daughter is her beautiful Disney Princess soft body dolls! And the best buy for my 3year old son is his Fisher Price Imaginext Batman Car, he will love it!
    Thank you x

  27. My best buy for toddlers this christmas wouldbe mega blocks!!! They can have hours of fun building whatever they want and using their imagination. Plus with so many different sets family and friends can add to their collection to help them build even more x

  28. I like both of you on facebook. Best present for middle daughter is the The Disney Princess Castle. I have been bombarded for the last 10 weeks, so hopefully she will love it and I can occassionally enjoy the football in peace, without wimpering puppy eyes making me feel guilty

  29. I got a My Pal Scout from tesco for £13, im sure my lo will love it!!!

    I’ve liked both yours and toyr r us pages thanks

  30. hello i have liked your page had a nice read this morn on there, lovely page, already liked toys r us page, my best buy for a toddler is learning games, i have 2 1/2 year old twins and this year we are buying games to help with counting colors etc the twins are really starting to get into them so that is defo my best buy xxx

  31. Has to be Play Dough or something they can use to bring out the artist in them lol. Toddlers get lots of fun playtime with Play dough and for years its been a favourite I think with little ones

  32. I’ve managed to get my one a brand new aeroplane and mini airport, still in box and plastic, never been used for £5 on a local car boot sale, its still in Asda selling for £18.99, so well chuffed with that one! He love planes and goes around making the noise as he “flies” them through the air.

    • Forgot to say I’ve liked your page, had liked ToysRus ages back. Was so wrapped up in remembering what I’d got Jake I forgot to add that. LOL
      Thanks for a great competition.

  33. Thank you soo much for running, really struggling to find anything for my little one as she just loves peppa so plays with all her sisters toys but I got my oldest the Mrs Goodbee dolls house and accessories in the summer for £40 all packed away until christmas I hope she loves it I am sure she will!!

  34. melissa and doug wooden play food is such a fabulous toy and great hit with toddlers who love to pretend to cook and bring you food to eat

  35. I bought my friends lil one the Leapfrog Shape and Sort Picnic for her birthday the other week and she loved it!! would defo recommend that for a toddler!!

  36. whenever i click the toys r us uk page from your link it says page not found? so cannot like that one!
    Have liked Edspire on facebook.
    I think perfect present for toddlers is either play doh or crafts of somesort, toddlers love colouring in.

  37. Liked both the facebook pages. My best buy for toddler would be stacking toys because they love knocking them down again and again and again… ;-)

  38. I have liked both Facebook Pages

    My daughter is obsessed about my laptop and im always trying to keep it out her reach after she took the keys of my husbands laptops keyboard. However she still always follows me around crying at my feet when im using my laptop , so i had this great idea and brought her, her very own laptop by Leapfrog :-) i cant wait to give it to her as it may actually save my laptop.

  39. Oooh it has to be the Cars activity desk exclusive to TRU. I can only imagine how much fin my son will have sitting in a car drawing!!!!

  40. I have liked both the facebook pages.

    I think that the Orchard Toys puzzles and games are a great buy for toddlers at christmas – they are really well made and will last for ages. We always played board games together at christmas and I’m looking forward to starting to starting the same tradition with my daughter.

  41. I like both FB pages.

    My top toddler toy for this xmas would be the BRIO Fun on the Farm train set. I bought this for my 2 year for his birthday last month and he loves it. The battery in the train doesn’t last long though!

  42. Liked both pages x

    My best buys are anything to do with Leapfrog or V-Tech. Children learn so much when they are playing with these products.

  43. I’m a fb fan of both pages. My best buy for toddlers would be some toy trains/cars/taxis and other toys vehicles – they keep my daughter occupied for hours! (Twitter @pondering_kate)

  44. Liking both on Facebook-Maria Jane Knight

    I think a fab buy for a toddler would have to be an outdoors toy, like a plastic wheelbarrow,trowel and rake set. Our son is 18 months old and LOVES being outside and you can see him using his imagination already. Being outside makes him a happier boy and im sure that is the case for all toddlers (its fab for tiring them out too)
    Weather you have a garden or not, they can be taken to the park or for a walk also.

  45. I bought my son a balance bike from ebay for £35 brand new – it is painted in a Captain America design. I worried about the quality of it until it arrived – it is fab!

  46. Have liked both sites on FB x

    My son is getting a big bucket of mega blocks for Christmas, he loves building things!! My house will be a mine field


    You cant beat duplo for durability and play and aprt from that and his cars the only toy my son loves is play -doh especially his monkey set as loves giving him n ew hair and tongue.

    The old toys are often the best and still around for that reason :)

  48. We have asked Santa for a toy kitchen with lots of Melissa & Doug play food. This proved to be a great toy for my eldest daughter who got hours of pleasure from hers when she was little.

  49. Have liked both pages
    My top toddler toy this Christmas is a Kiddimoto balance bike and matching helmet. I cannot wait to see my little girl’s face when she sees it on Christmas morning
