These ideas from our holiday gift guide for kids are sure to have your little sugar plums dancing with glee, mama!

Word on the street is that Toys ‘r’ Us has been a madhouse this week, mamas! Skip the chain stores and hit up some of these local independent businesses (many of them mama-owned) with your last-minute gift shopping for the kiddos. And for even more great ideas, be sure to check out our guide to the best tech gifts for kids!
orochen forest family 02
Inspired by a visit to the Orochen ethnic minority group in China, this wooden puzzle is designed to teach children about the animals of the forest, and encourage them to imagine play in nature settings. Always a handy lesson here in Singapore!
The Orochen Forest family costs $35, order from www.play.hayleyho.com
kids-gift-guide-sophia-webster-mini-girls-metallic-pink-orange-camo-trainers-231215
Ok so fine, these need to be ordered online and probably won’t get here in time for Christmas, but they are just so awesome we had to include them. They are so on-trend with the metallic high-tops look, but also have such a fun pop of colours that are ideal for little girls.
Available for $178 at www.childrensalon.com
kids-gift-guide-elly-loves-fur-vest-231215
Traveling to colder climes this holiday season, mama? This faux fur stunner from Cluny Court stalwart Elly Loves will ensure your mini me is both warm and stylish.
Available for $49 at Elly Loves, 501 Bukit Timah Road, #02-31/33 Cluny Court, Singapore 259760, Tel: (+65) 6466 8718, www.ellyloves.com
kids-gift-guide-Cuckoo-Wall-sticker-village-231215
Wall stickers are all the rage with kiddos these days, and why not when they’re this whimsical and fun? We love the muted tones and all the imaginative play these objects can inspire.

Available for $55.95 at Cuckoo, Block 6B Dempsey Road, Singapore 247662, Tel: (+65) 911 3598, www.cuckoo.com.sg

kids-gift-guide-frolik-coral-hat-231215
We love the colours of this fresh pattern (equally suitable for boys and girls), and it goes without saying that the quick-drying, UPF50+ fabric that Frolik is known for is simply rad.
Available for $35 at www.frolikbeachstyle.com
Blue fairy door in house
We love how simple these little doors are, but the story behind them and the kinds of imaginative play they can inspire are truly awesome. Almost like an Elf on the Shelf, but provides fun (and less stress for parents) all year round.
Available in Singapore through Aoife Orton. Call (+65)9710 5327 or email [email protected] for more info, www.theirishfairydoorcompany.com
kids-gift-guide-Mini_Melissa_Ultragirl_Star_Wars_231215
We just can’t stop smiling at these cheeky shoes that are so incredibly now, what with Star Wars’ current world domination and all. And the Darth Vader is just small enough (plus he’s clutching a heart) so that people won’t automatically assume your child is evil!
Available for $135 at MDreams, click here for store locations, www.mdreams.com.sg
kids-gift-guide-cupcake-romper-231215
As if you didn’t already find your baby or toddler delicious enough to eat, this sweet little unisex confection is sure to give you a toothache mama (without the pesky calories!). It’s made from super soft, stretchable cotton and has handy snaps at the bottom that allow it to become a singlet once bubs has outgrown it as a playsuit!
Available for $32 at at Le Petit Society 
kids-gift-guide-hi-ho-horse-231215
Between its sleek lines and surprisingly fluffy texture, this is such a cool take on the traditional children’s rocking horse. And it just looks so gosh darn cuddly!
Price available on request, Jarrod Lim Design, 324 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427581, Tel: (+65) 6440 0067, www.jarrodlim.com
Not only do these cars look super sleek and cool, but they’re amazing at encouraging kids’ creativity through their 16 mix-and-match pieces that are interchangeable with other Automoblox models. Made from high-quality beech wood, polycarbonate plastics and real rubber tires, these cool cars are taking the world by storm by helping kiddos develop creative problem solving, gross and fine motor skills.
Available for $64.90 at Playhao, 583 Orchard Road, #02-15 Forum The Shopping Mall, Singapore 238884, Tel: (+65) 6592 0938, www.playhao.com
