One of the loveliest presents Alfie received as a baby was a Grimm’s wooden stacking rainbow. He loved fitting the arcs together then and still enjoys playing with it now. I really love Little Sapling’s neutral take on the theme, the Brainbow, about Â£20 – a beautiful set of six arches in Maple, Cherry and Walnut woods, finished with beeswax and jojoba oil.
Nest them together, stack them up or create an amazing balancing structure Â – a very versatile toy which focuses on lots of different skills. Plus, it’s really good fun. Each ‘Brainbow’ comes in a cotton bag so makes a fab gift. P&p to the UK isÂ Â£11.45, which is admittedly pretty steep, but they will make a donation to Trees for the Future for every purchase, so just think of it as your good deed for the day.
