Babi Pur Ultimate Christmas Toys

The handmade and ethical toys that are at the top of every child’s Christmas Wish list

We all remember an extra special Christmas present we received as a child; our first dolls house, train set, or shiny new bike all hold great memories of fun, excitement and a magical time.

In an age where computers or cheap foreign imports are filling the toy shops, at Babi Pur, we believe in a revival of great quality and traditional Christmas toys and gifts. We think they’re not only better for kids, who will be able to enjoy their beautiful and hard wearing designs for many years, but that the planet will also thank us for them.

We’ve been working hard to hand-pick some stunning traditional and ethical Christmas toys that kids, and grown-ups, will adore; and here’s our list of the best traditional Christmas toys. We give you…..

4. Fair Trade Wooden London Bus

Lanka Kade is a Sri Lankan fair-trade organisation that uses traditional production methods and we think their toys are some of the most beautiful and well crafted traditional and ethical Christmas toys around. The rubber wood used to make these toys comes from old rubber plantations that would otherwise have been set alight.

This adorable brightly coloured London bus will become a firm family favourite. The top and first floor even come apart so that kids can reach all the little people inside. It is beautifully crafted and brightly painted and will last for years to come.
