PULL ALONG TURTLE - WWF
KOALA STACKER -WWF
Age 12 months +
French toy brand Janod’s WWF collection features more than 30 sustainable toys made with 100 per cent eco-responsible materials. These cute animals, which help to develop hand-eye coordination and large motor skills, are two of them. The turtle, with its engaging removable shell and swaying body, will encourage little ones in early walking skills. The Koala provides constant laughter as babies learn to stack the different sections on to his wibbly wobby body. Janod will donate a percentage of the proceeds from every WWF® product sold to support NGOs.
WOODEN GRUFFALO & MOUSE TOYS (large)
Age 18 months +
Bring The Gruffalo book to life with this incredibly realistic set of large, posable Gruffalo and Mouse toys. Both are made from sustainable wood and plastic-free. The Gruffalo figure stands at 21cm tall, making him a very impressive companion for a child! The mouse stacks up well alongside him at 11cm. Tall figures like these encourage children to practise storytelling and re-enact real-life situations through the toys.
