Roadmap: Getting ready for life

Roadmap: Getting ready for life

And so we've reached the end of the 100 Toys journey. As Maurice Sendak might have said if he'd run an online shop:

Through birth, in and out of the toy box, over five years and into the light of our very own imaginations.

It's been fun. But now we must part. Our hope is that we've equipped you and your child with the tools you'll need to take the next steps with confidence. Five years old seems like a natural break point, whether it's to start school or follow a home-based adventure.

A well-rounded child is our goal. Good with a pencil, fearless climbing a tree. But also able to tie her shoelaces, use a pair of scissors and wait for her turn. But most of all happy, inquisitive and full of brilliant ideas.

We're excited to hear what amazing things your child will do next.
