It’s time to start Christmas shopping. Only 7 weeks to go! More than ever before there is a big demand at The Enchanted Child for beautiful wooden toys rather than plastic, plastic and more plastic. If you’re looking for beautiful wooden toys that will be played with as well as look great, we have been stocking up on all things wooden. Wooden vehicles, wooden puzzles, wooden animals plus more.

Saturdays at The Enchanted Child shop in Balnarring is a lot about people rushing in to buy last minute kids birthday presents. We open the door at 10am and 9/10 times there’s someone waiting to come in and buy a birthday present on their way to a party that very day.
I’ve given a lot of thought to what people want and figure that most people would like to spend between $15 – $25 on a birthday party gift. They want that present that’s different from the run of the mill toys. They want a cute card, they want it gift wrapped and, voila! Off they go. Mission accomplished.
First birthdays can be tricky because so many toys are out of bounds for that age. There’s always the option of buying a gift that’s suitable for the baby when they’re 18 months old as there are more options and these toys look great on the shelf, especially the wooden toys.
Here are a few fun gift ideas for one year olds. In the shop we also have a lot of the walkers and ride ons for you to choose from.
Happy browsing and stay tuned for more kids gift ideas. Christmas is going to be here sooner than you think!

I’m enchanted by the fantastically fun ranges of baby clothes we have at The EC this summer! Fantastic!
The girls’ baby clothes are so pretty. Some are whimsical and others are bold.
Lots of reds, pinks and even some cornflower blues.
The baby boys’ clothes this summer are so much fun!
There are plenty of bold colors this season for boys along with pastel blues and greys. Spunky monkeys!
If you can make it into the Balnarring shop, there are other styles and brands to browse through as well.
I’m excited about the new range of meal time pieces at The EC! I don’t do a lot of ‘branding’ ranges but there are a few that are absolute must haves for me. Gaspard and Lisa now join Elmer and Maisy on the shelves. Can you blame me?
“Who are these two cute characters?” you ask. Best buds, of course! Gaspard and Lisa are the best of friends hanging out in Paris learning about life, school, family and friendship. They do everything together and are always there for each other, just the way best puppy friends should be be. And it’s a tv show on the ABC. Cute show!
Pastels are sweet on babies and so is a bit of COLOR! And Zutano definitely does color for babies.
The months have flown past and it’s time to open a Blog page and say hi! Firstly, here’s the shop:
