Rip it up

Everyone says it - no matter what you get them as a present, the wrapping paper will always be your baby's favourite bit!

So why wait until a special occasion to have fun unwrapping things?

Your baby will love the texture and sound and you can talk them through it as they explore what's inside.

*Make sure your child is supervised at all times and watch out for anything going in mouths, as paper can be a choking hazard.
