And if you’re after for a Christmas gift with a definite Welsh flavour, Babi Pur is definitely the place to go. We’ve put together a little collection of our favourite Welsh baby gifts here to make things easy for you.
Check out these gorgeous, soft leather baby shoes which are made in Wales by Inch Blue. They are the next best thing to bare feet, and are great for giving support for little crawlers and toddlers taking their first steps. The soft leather won’t restrict growing toes, they’re super comfy and will help tots grip on tiled and wooden floors. There is a huge range of designs available for boys and girls, from buses to tractors, foxes and elephants, but we particularly love the fab Christmas robin and penguin designs. The little Welsh dragon design is also a fab present for any little Welsh tot! What little one wouldn’t want to find these shoes in their stocking? They fit from birth to age two – see the full range here. We only wish they came in adult’s sizes as well!
It’s nippy out, so wrap up and give little toes a warm cuddle ( or cwtch) with these natural sheepskin boots by Inch Blue. Available in tan, black, pink and blue in sizes 0-6 months and 6-12 months, baby boys and girls will be toasty and on trend with these cute little boots. Sewn by hand in Wales, these snuggly boots will keep babies’ feet at the perfect temperature without overheating or the need for socks. They come in a presentation box, all you have to do is wrap them. A gorgeous Christmas present that will get a lot of use in wet and windy Wales.
Haba Diego Dragon – From 1 year
Little Welsh dragons will love to pull along Diego, and watch his wings flap and tail move from side to side as he moves along. This cute, chunky wooden toy will make a great Christmas gift for a toddler or first birthday present for an active tot.
Diego Dragon Natural Rubber Teething Toy – Suitable from birth
Another Diego! This 100% natural rubber Diego Dragon teething toy is a fun, colourful first Christmas present. Babies will love to grab, chew and squeak this cheeky little chap. He’s the perfect size dragon for tiny hands and an all-round sensory experience.
These fun, fair trade jigsaws are fab way to learn Welsh. Each jigsaw is 54cm long and made from chunky wood, with each brightly painted piece featuring a different letter of the Welsh alphabet. With three different creatures – crocodile, dragon and dinosaur – available, why not get a pair or the full set for siblings to play with? These gorgeous jigsaws are made in Sri Lanka from sustainable rubber wood. Children will love these jigsaws and they’ll look great on a shelf too when not in use.
Fallen in love and the person you’re buying is not a Welsh speaker? Fear not, Babi Pur sell English versions too, as well as a heap of other top toys and jigsaw by Lanka Kade here.
