Christmas 2021 gift ideas for kids under 5

Shopping for young kids at Christmas doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In fact, how many times have they played with the box more than the expensive toy that came in it? Choosing gifts that add extra play value or educational benefits and don’t do too much damage to your bank balance is the answer.

Orchard Toys always have some great educational games and puzzles and this Christmas Eve Box actually combines the two. With a Christmas list game that is similar to their popular shopping list game and a 20 piece puzzle set, this is an ideal gift.
