Does anyone know the best place to buy traditional baby’s toys, like wooden ones etc. Shape sorting, posting toys. The kind of ones I remember from my own children’s babyhood. Suitable for around 12 months

When I worked in Clinton Cards we had a range of toys called Melissa and Doug that were like that. Not sure if they still sell them but Next have them online. I’m sure other places probably stock them too

Babipur, little goat gruff or small eco steps are your best best. John Lewis also do a nice wooden range but I'm less sure about the environmental/ethical standards.

Good brans to look at are plan toys, heimiess, bajo, Grimms, Lanka Kade.

Myriad toys. Traditional, and usually wooden

Pretty much any toy shop, supermarket or department store. Smyths, The Entertainer, Argos all sell wooden traditional toys. Some 'own brand' but also brands like Melissa and Doug. Aldi and Lidl sell decent quality wooden toys. Not always in store because the specials change but their website has loads.

Another vote for Jaques of London. Good quality and reasonably priced.
