It is a joy to find toys that are not only really practical, but look great as well. And if they’re good value for money then they’ve really hit the jackpot. Scrunch beach toys tick all those boxes and a few of them have gone straight on to the holiday shopping list. Made from non-toxic, food-grade silicone, they solve that age-old problem of carting bulky buckets, spades and games to the beach – these ones fold and roll up for easy storage. The collection includes a bucket, £8.99, dinky spade, £2.49, net, £6.49, sand moulds, £6.99, and frisbee, £4.49, all in a rainbow of colours, plus a brilliant beach bag to put them all in, £13.99. The frisbee in particular is definitely one for the pressie drawer – the colours (Misty Grey, Blush Pink, Twilight Blue and Duck Egg Green) are divine. And it’s under a fiver!
