Since we began in 2013, we set a mission to provide high quality toys with traditional fun top of the agenda. With that in mind and our firm belief that products do not require batteries or flashing lights to inspire children’s imaginations, The Toy Centre was born. Traditional Toys to take children off to far away magical places as they learn through play. Likewise, we love childrens’ delight in wooden toys that stack, push, pull, and spin. Reminds us of our childhoods!

  • Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Definitely!

Super sturdy and really well designed wooden baby Walker with carpenter theme. So perfect for budding young builders 🤗 We especially love the really strong frame which really supports baby as they push themselves up. Plus adjustable brakes ensure greater stability. Moreover, as made from sustainable wood, the Haba Walker is extremely durable. Thus makes it the perfect traditional toy to pass down the family. 
Additionally, brightly coloured tough tools offer little ones the discovery of colour and shape recognition too. Plus a soft toy carpenter pixie adds to the fun from his little hidey hole. And all as part of their small world play! (Link in bio)
