Yellow Door Let's Roll

"These are a favorite of mine! My girls love a craft session and these playdough rollers are so easy for little hands. They're versatile too, you can use them for painting or cookies. We have four different sets, all different nature themes, each with six rollers. They work really well, creating gorgeous patterns and are incredibly durable. I'd gift for ages 1 and up!" — Hannah.

BigStuffed Grandma Whale

"I have had this Parisienne brand on our brand wishlist for the last two years because they are just so adorable, you can't not hug them! I feel that BigStuffed has done a beautiful job in making you feel how special these unique animals are, you really do marvel at how incredible the world is when you look into their eyes. There are few coming home with me, and I think I'll stock up on some smaller friends for baby gifts. I like to go very practical for baby shower gifts, but once the baby arrives, it's all about something cute and cuddly." — Kate.

Liewood Elisabeth Makeup Set

"This is partly for selfish reasons that I'm buying this. You see, too many great lipsticks and eyeshadows have fallen victim to tiny hands in my house. This set is so beautiful, realistic and fun, and guarantees I won't be cleaning foundation off the walls." — Hannah.

Weston Storage Box

"I'm actually going to buy these to redo the storage on my bookcase. Liewood is so great at designing things that have appeal for kids and adults, and these boxes are a true testament to that. You could use them to hold nappies, clothes, bottles — I'll get one for my fragrances too. Using them for toys means toddlers can do their own packing up, a Montessori 'do', and also, you're not going to be bothered at having them out because they look so nice." — Ashton.

Goldie + Ace Zip Up Sunsuit

"Giving bathers in my children's santa sack has become a real tradition. We love how Christmas marks the beginning of summer for us and new togs just makes it all the more exciting. Goldie & Ace have designed such fun and colourful prints in really practical designs. The Zoe Retro Floral is a dream." — Kate.

Janod Dinosaurs Magnetibook

"Summer holidays mean a lot of time spent in the car for most kids. Magnetibooks are a perfect way to buy some time from the dreaded "are we there yet?" question and extensive iPad time. I'm getting these for some my friend's kids too. I know they'll be just as appreciated by the parents as the kids when they're saved from listening to a Paw Patrol soundtrack on the freeway. At $39.95, they're the perfect price point for those gifts." — Hannah.

Olli Ella Rattan Medium Luggy

"My kids just love imaginative play and playing "grown-ups" and the beautiful rattan pieces from Olli Ella provides endless hours of entertainment. This Luggy even makes its way to the South Melbourne Market with us on a Saturday. I'm gifting a few this year to some similarly grown-up three-year-olds." — Kate.

Petit Menhir Play Wooden Educational Game

"My niece loves everything to do with building, and I like the extra challenge of balance these rocks give. I gave these to a friend's little boy recently, he's big into superheroes, and he told me they were 'power stones' and launched into an elaborate monologue about the different abilities they were giving him, so hey! They're multipurpose!" — Ashton.
