It is time to embrace the inevitable march towards seasonal festivities and the hunt for gifts that give that little bit extra! I have my eye on some stocking fillers for the kids from Bigjigs, one of the leading wooden toy designers in the UK. I like the colourful set of 72 interlocking wooden discs that creative, dextrous kids (and adults), can build into endless shapes (£6.99). The bright, slightly retro look appeals, and the fact that all of Bigjigs’ wooden toys are made from rubberwood from managed forests. Rubberwood is from trees that are only felled after completing the latex producing cycle, generally after 25-30 years.
There will be more festive pointers to follow, this is just a little heads up about Bigjigs as they are currently running a competition, on their Facebook page to win their Top 10 Stocking Fillers, which runs until Friday 22nd November.
