Christmas Wishlist – Three great wooden toys from Keachea

Melissa & Doug Beauty Salon play set

This little play set has been an absolute blast in our household since receiving it a few months back. Between Maddie’s nana, Maddie and I – we have all had some serious make -believe makeovers preformed on ourselves!


This Melissa & Doug Beauty Salon play set comes with 18 pieces to bring makeup, hair and nails pretend play to life! All beautifully homed in a wooden table-top sturdy vanity which includes a child-safe mirror and storage drawer where all the wooden accessories can be stored. Everything from a hair dryer, hair spray, hair straightener, comb, brush, flip-top lotion bottle to pretend makeup pieces including lipstick, two nail polish bottles, blush, makeup brush, eye shadow and applicator.

There is no shortage of glamour and style at playtime with these wooden beauty essentials! A couple of times Maddie has carried the mirror over to my bedroom where I am doing my hair and makeup, to do hers.

The set also includes a reusable spa services card to let kids get the full salon experience by customising makeovers for themselves, friends, stuffed animals, and dolls!

An absolute gem of a girls product and a must for any girly girl!

The Beauty Salon play set retails for R750.

Le Toy Van Fairy Castle

What little girl doesn’t love playing in a fantasy world of fairies and castles? This Le Toy Van (another one of my favourite wooden toy brands) fairy castle is just the sweetest little play set.


The beautifully highly detailed original artwork painted on the wooden fairy castle mounted on a decorated baseboard, brings this toy to life and is fit for any aspiring fairy princess.

It stands at around ? – a really great size to pack away on a toy shelf while being big enough for the adorable range of Le Toy Van Budkins fairies which stand around 10 cm high, to play beautifully inside. The range of Budkins doll characters include; garden fairies, truth fairies and princess fairies (sold in a three pack) and other toys to add to the castle include a fairy carriage and unicorn! 

The fairy castle retails for R1185 and the fairies sold separately.

Melissa & Doug Scoop & Serve Ice-Cream Counter 

Another gem of a wooden toy we have had so much fun with! The Melissa & Doug Scoop & Serve Ice-Cream Counter is a sturdy wooden tabletop counter holds which eight wooden scoops of ‘different flavoured’ ice cream, six assorted toppings, two cones, a plastic cup, an ice cream scooper and a wooden spoon.

The scooper fits into a hole on top of the scoops to lift, stack, and release. It is such a great educational toy in the fact that it encourages your child to take orders on the reusable menu card encouraging them to identify the colours and patterns and matching them to serve up delicious fun and pay with play money.

Another great toy for both girls and boys this Christmas!

The ice-cream counter retails for R740.
