Best Years Presents For Little Ones

Feast your eyes on this lovely site; the home of the widest range of crocheted and knitted toys in the UK.

Buying beautiful, ethical and long-lasting baby toys is made easy thanks to Best Years. Having had young children themselves, Best Years saw a gap in the market for ethically sourced, gorgeous knitted and crocheted toys and accessories. All their toys are tested to CE and EN71 standards and are machine washable (the ultimate dream for baby toys, I’m sure we can all agree!).

With over ten years’ experience, this lovely, Northamptonshire-based company has been selling a wonderful array of colourful, knitted products with a difference.

Prepare yourselves for rainbow striped octopi, crocheted, London grey pigeons, cute handmade astronauts, and that’s just to name a few. They are also the first company to bring knitted dinosaurs into our lives!

Trust us, presents for little ones really don’t come any cuter than this.

Under The Nile Organic Cotton Bean Baby Toy - £10.99

We bought this exact toy for our first baby (ten years’ ago now) and can safely say that it is an absolute winner. Babies love to play and chew on its cute (organic cotton) legs!

My First Diplodocus Natural Rubber Dinosaur Toy - £10

These natural rubber and wonderfully colourful toys are perfect for when your little one is teething. They have zero holes in, so are not only hygienic, but super easy to clean.

Fair Trade Cotton Baby Blanket Rainbow Stripes - £46.99

This rainbow blanket would make the loveliest newborn present. It is made with the softest cotton and would be the perfect accessory for any pushchair or cot.

Crochet Cotton Octopus Baby Rattle Blue And Green - £10

We love this adorable striped octopus. It is the ultimate sensory toy for any child as well as being fair trade, handmade and, as with all their products, machine washable!

Giant Green Knitted T Rex Dinosaur Soft Toy - £250

If you are looking for a really special gift (Grandparents/God Parents, alert!) then look no further than this gorgeous huge knitted T Rex that will please any lucky girl or boy, for years to come.

Under The Nile, Organic Cotton Carrot Beanie Baby Hat - £15

We are not sure that it gets much cuter than this super soft, organic cotton, carrot baby hat! If you want to complete the whole carrot ensemble (of course you do!), then be sure to get the matching baby body and baby toy too.
