They’ll escape into a world of imagination with these must-have toys, made for endless fun.
After months of homeschooling, cancelled playdates and being cooped up inside, there’s no doubt that kids (and parents) are in need of a well-deserved break. Whether you’ve got tiny tots or tweens at home, toys that spark their curiosity and guarantee hours of fun are sure to brighten their day. Plus if you can nab yourself some “me-time” in the process, all the better. From games and scooters to plush toys and LEGO, we asked the kids of David Jones team members what their favourite toys are and why.
Fun and games
Warmer weather calls for full days of play out in the sunshine. Games made for multiple players are ideal for long-overdue catch-ups with friends at the beach or park, or in the backyard. They’ll love digging through sand and leaves with the Wonder Wheels trucks, and playing Twister, Uno and all the classics with their best friends.
