If you search online for easy to learn xylophone songs, Jingle Bells is one of the most popular results. So, by the time you’re ringing in the New Year, your child could have perfected the tune on the Baby Xylophone they received on Christmas Day!
The Baby Xylophone is a high quality, well tuned and colourful 8 note real musical instrument and its chunky shape and rounded edges ensure it is accessible and safe for even the smallest fingers. And, don’t worry, when you’ve had enough of your child practising Jingle Bells, the Baby Xylophone comes with some colour-coded music sheets to help your child learn a range of fun songs.

There’s no better way to calm your child down after a stimulating day packed full of noise, people and sugary treats than with a relaxing pre-bedtime bath. The Edushape Magic Creations – Jungle Fun bath toy is the perfect way to convince them to put away some of their noisier Christmas gifts and get ready for a good night’s sleep.
Children will be fascinated as the foam shapes stick like magic to any smooth, flat surface when wet. The colourful animal illustrations will ensure that your child goes to bed dreaming of jungle adventures with giraffes, elephants, zebras and more.
