Shopping for kids can be hard! Younger kids need toys that build on learning basics and strengthening motor skills, while older children need toys that are more challenging and stimulating. And of course, the toys need to thrill and inspire play. With so many choices on the market, here are some of our favourites for a broad range of interests and ages.
Toddlers can be tough to buy for. They aren't babies anymore, but they are not quite ready for some of the 3 years + toys and the small parts they come with. But there are definitely some toys that cater to their new independence, and their desire to explore their environment and build on language and social skills.
Gift giving for babies is great because there are so many cute things to choose from or you can still get away with being practical and giving them the essentials for their first year.
At Bumble Tree, we love toys that stimulate the imagination, but not far behind, are toys that burn off extra energy! Here is a list of some of our best active play ideas, so your kiddos will sleep soundly this holiday season.
We are big believers in extending childhood as long as possible. We see the older kids come in and see their faces light up looking at the toys.

Here are our picks for them to enjoy.
As parents we are all trying our best to raise kids that are critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders. We've all heard the catch phrase STEAM but what does it really mean when it comes to our children's learning and how does it help our children become the critical thinkers we want them to be?
Is there anything better than the tiptoe of little feet on Christmas morning to see what wonders await under the Christmas tree? If you are looking for that special item that will wow them and become a treasured memory for years to come, check out these ideas.
Christmas is fast approaching and to avoid that mad scramble for last minute stocking stuffers we are offering some of our best picks, nice and early. There are so many more items in store, but below are a few of our favourites.
Gag gifts can be fun, but they just get tossed aside, thrown away or re-gifted. Wouldn't you much rather give and receive something useful and practical?
There has been a huge push towards minimalism and eco-friendly choices like buying used. But don’t eliminate your local toy store as a choice!
