i spy train set

On Track

Put on your best Cockney accent and get ready for a pretend trip to London – well, it’s going to be too busy to actually visit this summer. This delightful wooden train set has all you could want from a day out in the capital, including some of the most popular sights as well as a Tube train, taxi and red double decker. Lovely jubbly. ltmuseumshop.co.uk

i spy globe

Spin City

The whole world is coming to London this summer, so why not make London the whole world? This ‘globe of the city’ features 40 famous landmarks and even has the Queen’s gold coach stationed outside Buck House ready to parade down The Mall. Great for tiny hands to spin and point at things, and afun way for older kids to learn about the capital.

And if you’re bored of London, or planning a trip somewhere else this summer, the globes also come in a range of other British and foreign cities including Cardiff, Paris and New York.

Super Soother

What with the Jubilee, Euro 2012 and the Olympics, we’re all getting geared up for a massive dose of patriotism this summer. Sadly, if you’re a tiny newborn, it can be tricky to show your support. But if you’re determined to get your tot to join in the fun, pop one of these cute Brit-themed pacifiers in their mouths and, even at nap-time, they’ll be flying the flag.

i spy sentry

21st Sentry Toy

The Queen’s Guards have always been the most popular soldier with children – it might be the giant furry hat, it might be the bright red coat (ok, it’s the hat, we know). Now your tots can play their very own version of the Changing of the Guard with this cute little fellow and sentry box from Budkins. Apparently, his name is James, he’s posh and likes crumpets for tea. But, being a toy, you can always change that if you like.

i spy babers book

Unforgettable Story

Now, we know elephants are not known for their athleticism, but then Babar’s never been your everyday elephant (if there is such a thing). Determined to join in with this summer’s sporty schedule, Babar and the clan have their own Games in their latest adventure, Babar’s Celesteville Games. And if you’re getting just a bit tired of all the sport, don’t worry, it turns out to be a front for what’s actually a charming love story – it’s even got a wedding and everything.
