As our highly commended Best Online Toy and Gift Retailer in the Junior Design Awards 2012, Great Little Trading Co are offering a range which should cement their reputation for beautifully crafted toys with high-end design credentials and bags of fun potential for children. In particular the vibrant and chunky Noah’s Ark Shape Sorter, £25, Masterpiece Easel, £71, and pretty-as-a-picture white Freja Dressing Table stood out as key pieces to put on Santa’s list.

These exquisitely detailed, luxurious hand-decorated treats would be certain to please, especially these amazing bespoke cakes in keepsake tins, the decorative reusable cloth advent calendar, £60 (with biscuits) and the wonderfully nostalgic Nutcracker Tin, £38.50, featuring all of the fairytale characters from the festive ballet in sweet crumbly biscuit form.
