With three kids very close in age our house is filled with toys and many of them are doubles. Aside from the fact that it is expensive to buy two or three of everything there is also the issue of space, not that little cars or dolls take up much room but walkers, ride-on’s. trikes and bikes certainly do. In fact our playroom looks a bit like a parking garage with a whole row of rides in all shapes and sizes along one wall. If you are just about to start investing in wheels for your little one make sure you check out this awesome 3-in-1 Transformable Toy by Mishi Design, available at Shop For Tots.

From just 9 months old your baby can start using this toy as a Walker, complete with toy basket for all his/her favourite belongings. The sturdy wooden construction will offer all the support your child needs when learning to take those first wobbly steps and before you know it your inquisitive toddler will be exploring every corner of the house (and collecting treasures on the way).

The second stage of the 3-in-1 Transformable Toy is the Ride-On mode, turning the sturdy walker into a funky bike. For kids this is the start of learning how to steer and how to use their little legs to get the bike moving, it will be a bit tricky at first but once they get it there is no stopping them. Ride-on’s are fun for all ages, my three (3,5 year old twins and an 18-month old) are always racing theirs through the hall way.

The last fase, but definitely not the least exciting, is the transformation from ride-on to trolley. A trip to an imaginary shop to stock up on groceries and pay with plastic money or hanging up the washing, there are hours of fun to be had. The pretend play stage will last for quite some time so the trolley will be thoroughly enjoyed by children up to 6 years old. Conclusion: Invest once and do it well and you’ll get years out of this fantastic 3-in-1 Transformable Toy.

If the thought of Christmas being just three weeks away scares you you probably don’t want to be reminded of school holidays. In two weeks time your little students will be home full time so there will be a lot less time for you to get things done. Luckily there are many great products around that will help you to keep big and little people entertained, either at home whilst you prepare a feast or when visiting family over Christmas time. Shop For Tots’ extensive range is sure to offer a helping hand, especially with the current 15% off storewide offer. Simply used the code ‘ELF’ at checkout for your discount to be applied, promotion ends December 10 2011.

The Colouring House of Fun Garden ($9.45-15%=$8.03) activity set is one of my favourites, it not only contains plenty of craft supplies for multiple kids but it is also fabulously priced. Designed by Tiger Tribe this gorgeous little house holds a 2.5m (!) scroll of  illustrations for colouring-in, 2 sheets of stickers and a packet of crayons. Girls will love this garden design where as the boys can be kept busy with the Colouring House of Fun Transport.

My kids love doing puzzles but the pieces often end up everywhere, something that won’t happen with the Melissa & Doug Puzzles in a Box ($17.05-15%=$14.49, vehicles or farm). There are 4 puzzles in each box and with 12 pieces per puzzles your little ones will be entertained for a while. Do just one puzzle at a time or mix up all the pieces for a little challenge! Once finished everything can be packed away in the box, no mess and perfect for at grandma’s house too.

If you’ve tried everything and the kids just won’t leave you alone you might as well get them to help you in the kitchen. Unfortunately Shop For Tots can’t guarantee a spill free floor but at least the clothes will stay clean with one of the gorgeous Oil Cloth Aprons. They are a steal at a bargain price of just $14.95 (plus an additional 15% off with the discount code) and available in three different styles to suit both genders.

In preparation of our first ever vegetable patch Daddy and the twins are working very hard on digging up the garden and building a raised garden bed. Our son loves helping people so he is totally in his element (dirty must most adorable). Like most boys he really enjoys the digging up and moving dirt but he is even more intrigued by the building part of it all, he would love to help Daddy out with his own tools so I have no doubt he would love this Toolbelt with Tools from Shop For Tots.

The cool kids Toolbelt by Me2Me2 looks just like the real deal. It is made with strong blue nylon and comes with 4 tools, a perfect start for your future builder and obviously there is plenty of room in the different pockets to add more tools as his collection grows. To make it easy for little hands to do and undo the belt it features quick release buckles. The Toolbelt and tools set ($33.95) offers hours of play fun without the dangers of real tools.

Handpicked by parents Kate and Steve all the products at Shop For Tots are selected with care. With more than 25 years of retail experience under their (tool)belts they know all about picking durable, high quality products and offering nothing less than outstanding customer service. Add to that speedy dispatch (usually next day delivery) and their love for Australian designed items and you can see why Shop For Tots is a store worth bookmarking.

The Shop For Tots range focusses on 0-4 year olds and it doesn’t stop at great toys. From clothing to gifts, decor to bedding, party supplies to out and about, Shop For Tots really is a one-stop-shopping address and the best thing is that everything on the website is in stock and ready to be sent out. Over in the decoration department these new Little Red Riding Hood Wall Decals ($39.95) have just been added,  just gorgeous!

As a big fan of Australian label Oishi-m (their jeans are fantastic, having survived two of my kids and now being worn by no 3) I am very excited by the new Summer collection. Think funky shorts and stylish skirts, fitted with the signature Tummy Toastie waistband and stunning kimono fabrics, as well as a hip range of tees and cardi’s for boys and girls. This pink Bee U girls tee ($35.95, size 00-4) has the sweetest floral fabric sleeves and not unimportant, it is Australian made.
