I’ve recently hooked up with The Baby Aim to review a toddler hamper*.
I’m always keen to support independent businesses, as they can go the extra mile to really give you a special and unique gift. So, I was excited to see what Candice – from The Baby Aim – would create for a toddler.
We’ve all seen baby baskets before – I in fact received one from a friend jam packed with bits and bobs when Georgia was born. But a toddler hamper? Never seen one before! Have I been living under a rock? Probably, but that’s parenting for you.
When we received our delivery, it came very well packaged in a large box, with air pocket bags to make sure the hamper wasn’t damaged during transport. It was also delivered by courier to make sure it arrived in one piece.
The wooden hamper was wrapped in plastic with a lovely bow, which made it look very professional!
Inside the hamper was a LOT of paper to keep everything safe inside (we’ll swing back to that later…).
It also made it feel like a lucky dip to pull out each hidden item with Georgia – she definitely enjoyed that part, so there was a lot of “ooohs” going on from both of us as we rummaged our way through.
What was inside the toddler hamper?
Now for the good part… what did it include?
- Organix Goodies carrot cake bars
- Drinks bottle
- Pampers baby wipes (always useful)
- Vest top from John Lewis
- Headband (ridiculously cute!!)
- Little Miss helpful book
- Peppa pig board book
- Burts bees shampoo & wash
We’re already putting everything to good use – we actually hadn’t tried the carrot cake bars before and she LOVED them. I loved the fact that this hamper could be tailored to Georgia’s likes and dislikes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Often with hampers, you get exactly what’s on the tin – which granted is nice to know on some occassions, but I loved the surprise and anticipation of waiting for my hamper and not knowing what was inside.
Each gift was so thoughtful it made it extra special.
I’m sure it’d make a fantastic surprise gift for anyone so pop on over to her Facebook page and show her some love and to see other hampers she’s made.
As well as Toddler hampers, she also makes newborn hampers and older baby hampers of a variety of sizes.
My particular hamper is worth £26 with £3.50 P&P. Worth it? I think so. I’d definitely consider using her for any friends to give a more unique gift.

More than one use…
As well as making great packaging, the paper was also great fun to play with… (I told you we’d swing back to this).
But as a warning, if you attempt to play with shredded paper, thinking it’ll be fun – it is… but it will be in your house FOREVER. I’ve cleaned and cleaned and cleaned my floors, but it just keeps popping up.
I can see a piece now on my floor and it’s been a week now post-play.
*In exchange for an honest review, I was gifted the hamper, minus a few costs. My review above is my own opinion, but you can see for yourself how special they are.
