Why we love Little Tikes!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic toy maker, we’d like to share their best-loved toys through the decades…

Play is an important part of a child’s development and, learning through play,  gives a child the chance to be spontaneous and to express themselves. Physical play encompasses free movement and encourages creativity and crucial social and communication skills needed to form relationships as the child grows.

Founded in 1969, Hudson, USA, Little Tikes is a multi-national manufacturer of good quality, innovative children’s toys which are durable, safe and actively encourage imaginative play. Well known for their fabulous playhouses, ride-ons, sports, sandboxes, climbers and slides, from the world famous Cozy Coupe in 1979, to the recently introduced L.O.L. Surprise! Cottage Playhouse, we’ve picked some of our favourites, past and present, to share with you…
