10. Bamboo Plates 

Who could resist the cuteness of lunch served on a plate in the shape of your favourite Aussie animal? Each eco-friendly bamboo plate is designed to keep food separated so your tiny toddler won't have a melt down in front of their tuna melt. These plates make brilliant serving platters for parties too. And they’re ideal for posting to loved ones overseas!

7. Bath Toys

The right bath accessory could even persuade the dog to get in the tub. The problem is most water toys are closed so you can't clean them and they become health risks. Not our Kid O Yellow Submarine! Kids will love to deconstruct it and snap it back together when all clean, just like them.

About Diany: A former career as a banker couldn't be further from a career sourcing quality toys for children but Diany is perfectly happy with the latter. Even before her son was born Diany had always been a self confessed ‘Toy Enthusiast, so when she began running her local toy library in Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs, the spark for an idea was born - a toy store that offered a birthday registry that makes it easy for parents having to buy the gifts and for those parents receiving them on behalf of their child. Affectionately known as the 'Toy Lady' at school drop off, Diany carefully curates a selection of toys that have play based learning at their core and stand the test of time. Read more about Diany here
