Sometimes all you need is faith, trust and a little bit of fairy dust, right? It's your chance to sprinkle some joy thanks to the best fairy toys for children. We're talking bewitching colouring books, sustainable wooden train kits, and enchanted playsets - in the name of magic.

Whether it's your baby, toddler or child's birthday, a toy to take to their grandparents or a preschool graduation gift, these are guaranteed to put a spell on your little one.

How to choose the best fairy toy?

When you're searching for the best fairy toy it's all about creating a happy ending for your child. Whether you're buying the best toys for 2-year-olds or the best toys for 5-year-olds, make sure you check the age range before hitting that shop button, unless you're happy with becoming the evil villain and taking away their new toy because it's too complicated or not engaging enough.

When choosing the best fairy toy here are five things to look out for:

1. Is it value for money?

Don't be afraid to shop around. If you've found a toy that you think your baby will love, see if it's cheaper elsewhere - you might find that one store is having a sale and you'll bag a bargain.

2. Read the reviews

Other parents will take the time to write about a pair of fairy wings that are naff so always do your research before buying any toy.

3. What will your child get out of this toy?

Undecided whether or not this is right for your little prince or princess? Put yourself in their shoes and if you think they won't get much playtime out of it, you're probably right.

4. Activities, games and puzzles

Instead of opting for a traditional doll, pick a fairy play rug or colouring book to keep them entertained day after day.

5. Think sensory

Be it glitter or any fabric used, the sensory experience that your child has with their toy can make or break playtime.
