Lachie's Favourites

We love the range of toys that we stock here at The Toy Bug but our chief toy tester has to be convinced that they are fun before we can go ahead.

Lachie tests the toys for us and along the way he has found some toys which have become his firm favourites. If he loves them so much, so might your child. That’s why we created a special section on our website devoted to Lachie’s Favourites. You’ll find tactile toys, activities, puzzles, books and fidget toys all listed together. Lachie’s Favourites is a bit of a treasure trove.

One of Lachie’s early favourites was the Bilibo. It’s hard to imagine any child not loving this simple but fun toy. It looks a bit like a big, upside down hard hat when you first see it but once your child sits in it, you’ll see it very differently. Both boys and girls can find virtually unlimited ways to play with Bilibos - from rocking, spinning, sitting in, to hiding under, carrying with, and peeking through.

Georello Gears Go Round is another special toy but this one is great for fine tuning motor skills while engaging your child’s imagination and logic. Brightly coloured wheels, interlocking plates plus gears and pegs allow little ones to create a huge variety of flat or 3 dimensional structures with this 80 piece gear set. It fascinated Lachie to watch the reaction of the gears when he turned it on. The flow on movement captured his imagination.

I can’t end without mentioning the Scooter Board. This is a favourite with most kids. The safety scooter board is designed for children and can be used to develop bi-lateral co-ordination, balance and kinaesthetic awareness. They can sit on it, kneel or even lie on it and scoot around. It’s a clever toy that does wonders for a child’s balance and confidence.

Have a look through Lachie’s Favourites. You might find just the right toy for your child.
