"Children love role-play but it's good for their development too, helping boost lots of important skills including communication and problem-solving," says our Consumer Editor, also a mum of three.
"Investing in wooden toys that encourage role-play can also help your little one's physical development, enticing them away from screens to the much-more-fun world of make-believe. My daughter had a wooden toy shop like this when she was around three years old and it was by far the most popular toy we've ever owned. Brilliant for when friends come round to play, too!"
