10 Galt Gifts Under £10 for Newborns and Toddlers


Nov 2016

If you want to treat your little one to something special that’s reasonably priced, or perhaps need a baby shower or birthday gift idea – the mums at Galt HQ have picked their favourite top 10 Galt baby and toddler presents for under ten pounds to give you a helping hand…

Pop-Up Toy (£7.99)


This amusing wooden toy is both fun and great for developmental activity. The four colourful figures which bob up and down on concealed springs are designed to encourage hand/eye coordination and introduce colour awareness.

Bird Bath Toys (£9.99)


Attractive to both adults and children, the Ambi Bird is a very simple and smooth shape for small hands to grasp with a comforting and tactile quality. Based on Eskimo bone carvings in the British Museum, the bath toy contains an internal ballast to help keep it perfectly upright as it bobs about in the bath.

Ted and Tess Pram String (£9.99)


These five lovely colourful teddies, on elastic that clip onto a pram or car seat, will encourage a baby’s eyes to focus as the teddies swing their legs with the movement of the pram.

Peep-o Puppet – Lion (£7.99)


Have a fun game of peep-o with this soft colourful puppet. Move the soft pole up and down and the cute lion will appear then disappear to delight a young child.

Teether Soft Book – Farm (£5.99)


There is plenty of fun packed into this Farm Teether Soft Book. The colourful fabric book with a squeaky cow’s head and a textured teether, has a feature or activity to discover on each of the eight pages and lots of crinkle material for little hands to explore.

Baby Puzzle – Jungle (£5.99)


When buying a gift for a child, you can’t go wrong with a puzzle. These simple colourful jungle animal puzzles will encourage early matching skills and manual dexterity, perfect for young children.

Chirpy (£5.99)


We love this cleverly designed toy! Blow into the toy to make the whistle sound then fill the body with water and the whistle changes to the chirping of a bird, perfect for bath time fun.

Large Soft Book – Farm Faces (£7.99)


Soft books are great fun for little ones. Children will learn to assign noises, recognise colours, images and shapes. This delightful soft cloth book is filled with crinkle material which is so appealing to babies, and machine washable which is appealing to parents.

Baby Mirror (£5.99)


This flower-shaped plastic mirror is perfect for little hands to hold, as a baby discovers their reflection and begins to learn about who they are.

Ted Triple Teether (£4.99)


This brightly coloured bear with rattle will appeal to babies. The three layers are all different textures for different ‘biting requirements’ up to toddler age!

If you have any favourite gifts for babies and toddlers, we’d love to hear about them in the comments!

100 years of British Summer Time – When do the clocks go back?


Oct 2016

Every year many of us find ourselves confused about which way the clocks will be going, but remember ‘Spring forward, fall back’. So in a matter of weeks you’ll be waving goodbye to British Summer Time when the clocks go back by an hour on October 30th.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first time that British clocks were turned back to GMT after BST. The mornings should be lighter and the evenings darker, despite this having happened for a century, and many electronic devices altering the time automatically, there will always be one person you know who won’t remember!


Daylight Saving: Whose idea was it?

That would be… William Willett who introduced the idea of British Summer Time in 1907. He wanted to prevent people from wasting valuable hours of light during summer mornings, and published a paper ‘The Waste of Daylight’ in a bid to get people out of bed earlier. He spent his life trying to convince people it was a good idea, but sadly died before Germany adopted the idea on April 20th 1916, with Britain following suit a month later on May 21st.

The Importance of Telling the Time

Learning to tell the time is an important concept in the early childhood years, and can be tricky business. Government guidelines state that all children aged four to five should be able to read analog clocks, and by age five to six they should understand half and quarter hours.

When starting to teach children the time on an analog clock it’s important to have a model to show them, so they can see the numbers and hands clearly and can count the minutes. You can either make your own or purchase one.

Our new Tell the Time Set is a fun approach, which comes with a clock face with moveable arms and a step by step guide with tips and game ideas, that will help children to learn how to tell, measure and understand the time.


You can start by showing examples on the clock and then have them identify the hour and minute hands. Once they know the difference between the two, they can practice identifying the time to the hour, half hour, quarter hour, and eventually to the minute. Like the majority of learning it is best to reinforce it with everyday situations, such as asking them what time their favourite TV programme starts, or what time they get up in the morning and go to school.

If you have any ‘telling the time’ tips, we’d love to hear them in the comments section below!

Six Benefits of Colouring

  1. Whether they stay in the lines or not, colouring nurtures creativity and stimulates children to brainstorm and to think of new ideas on their own naturally.
  2. Most Children love to colour, and as well as being a fun activity it helps their cognitive and psychological development.
  3. Improves fine motor skill development, the actions and motions involved aid the development of muscles in their fingers, hands and wrist helping them to write more skilfully as well as operate small objects.
  4. It is a great way for children to express themselves, and you can learn a lot about the way a child is feeling by the images that they draw and the colours they use!
  5. It can be very therapeutic. A child who wants to vent their day’s frustration may scribble outside the lines or colour their best picture ever, but whatever they do, it’s a great way to de-stress.
  6. Milestone, for many children colouring in the lines is just as important as counting to 10! It’s a milestone that says ‘Yes I can!’ –  providing them with a sense of self-worth.

These benefits reinforce the importance of colouring in, and we have a fantastic range of colouring books to keep them going (click here), featuring dot-to-dot images, Magic Painting Books (brush water across them to make colours appear), Magic Pictures (hidden pictures to rub with a coin and then colour in with crayons or felt pens), and much more! Something for everyone, to keep little hands and minds entertained.
