Toys We're Relying on During Lockdown

These are unprecedented times, they say – no kidding! With multi-tasking families trying to live, work and play from home in mind, we asked some of the parents among our Harrods editorial team to share their survival kits.

Relenting to Lockdown

“When a Nerf gun appears on the Christmas list, it’s usually avoided. ‘Let’s shoot granny!’ – not ideal on Christmas Day. In lockdown, though, we’ve made a mini rifle range from cleaned-out cans of tomatoes and egg boxes.” – Stacey Duguid, fashion editorial director

Nerf - Fortnite Blaster

The Groceries Run, but Fun

“My spare room has been transformed into a shop, with an ice-cream counter (essential, in their eyes), a till and Le Toy Van’s Honeybake Shopping Trolley. I love watching their little imaginations at play with cute props like this.” – Amy Broomfield, lifestyle editor

Home-Schooling, Sorted

“A totally essential aid to home-schooling, this globe turns exploring the world into interactive fun.” – Amy Broomfield, lifestyle editor

Leapfrog - Magic Adventures Globe

Bake It ‘Til They Make It

“If my eldest daughter could have designed her own baking set, it would have looked like this – it combines her two loves of cake and Frozen.” – Amy Broomfield, lifestyle editor

A Whole New World

“My daughter loves mixing and matching her Disney LEGO worlds. Currently, Cinders and Aladdin are working on a refurb. Jasmine is out of the picture but Cinderella has adopted a hair-do strikingly similar to that of the princess…” – Emily Sellers, creative lead

LEGO - Cinderella's Castle Celebration

Friends for Life

“Both of my daughters own a Jellycat Bashful Blush Bunny and declare it to be the softest bunny ever. They have treasured theirs since they were tiny babies.” – Amy Broomfield, lifestyle editor

Banking Made Easy

“My daughter, it turns out, is a bit of a whizz at board games (there may be some cheating involved – never play Snakes and Ladders with her). With a new found love for Monopoly, this updated game has a speaking banker she loves to compete against!” – Stacey Duguid, fashion editorial director

Hasbro Games - Monopoly Voice Banking Game

In Lieu of Driving Lessons

“My need-for-speed two-year-old loves anything that allows her to move faster than her little legs can carry her. A bit flashy, perhaps, but nothing would make her happier than this shiny, noisy car. Good thing we can’t let her on the open road right now!” – Katie Service, beauty editorial director
