Whatever your situation, we guarantee any of the gifts on our Top 10 list will keep your little ones entertained throughout the Christmas period, from our fluffy sensory toys to our weighted animals, to our tactile toys and lights.

Warmies (Weighted animals)

Because everyone needs a hug from a warmie!!

The dark and cold weather can affect everyone and sometimes, all we want to do after a long day is cuddle up in front of the TV and relax. If this describes you, then a Warmie could be that perfect gift that has been missing from your Christmas stocking.

Whether your child is a fan of unicorns, dragons, monkeys, giraffes, puppies, monkeys, or if they want to add miss Jilly to their band of merry ragdolls, we have them all in stock here at Learning SPACE. They are safe to heat up and play with and can also work as birthday presents for your teenagers’ friends, or can help to relieve your aches and pains after a long day at work. marvellous (safe to heat up and play with) gifts for excited little girls and boys (see we told you…FUN for all the family). Each of our furry little friends are £12.99 each so visit our website today to make sure you don’t go a day longer without a warmie in your life.

Tommy the Tranquil Turtle

Next up, we’d like to introduce you to Tommy. Don’t be put off by his dozy demeanor, Tommy is actually working double-time. It’s our first product to combine both sight and sound features — projecting gentle underwater images and playing the soothing sounds of the sea. This comforting combination makes for a super serene sleep space. Among his many features, Tommy’s shell glows in relaxing Aquamarine colour, gives a choice of 2 melodies with 6 adjustable volume levels. He also has a 23 minute timer which ensures complete darkness and silence during child’s deep sleep, as recommended by paediatricians, and he has adjustable settings for brightness and movement create a fully controllable experience for various environments. You can purchase your own ‘Tommy the Tranquil Turtle” for only £49.99.

Frula & Enno (The Worry Eaters)

Children (and adults) often have fears, troubles and woes and don’t always tell their parents about them. So when your child doesn’t feel like they can talk to someone about their worries, they can tell Frula and Enno: the worry eaters.

Recommended by psychologists and teachers as your child’s own personal waste bin for problems. Children simply write or draw their troubles and feed them into the zip mouth of their Worry Eater.

Not that this solves all the problems straight away! The idea is that when a parent or carer finds the note or drawing, they can talk to their children about them. What’s more, Frula and Enno are nice and cuddly and can be your child’s best friend in both good times and bad. They’re also brilliant for eating nightmares – but don’t forget to supplement their diet with plenty of cuddles!

Why we LOVE them

Worry Eaters give comfort and reassurance. Get your own Frula and Enno today from £21.99.
