They're getting older! We have some great ideas for the third birthday. The wooden toys listed here recognise that the child is becoming more independent and is able to play on their own for longer periods of time. Their imagination will run wild and playsets are a very good option at this age. They will make up stories and scenarios - that may last for weeks - and with lots of play value and scope for experimenting these toys will give hours of enjoyment - and they won't realise that they are learning too!
