Gift ideas: the SIBI pushalong ride
So classy it looks like a piece of designer furniture, yet simple enough to be a perfect first 'bike' experience, the Sibi is a fabulous present to give.

There are some lovely wooden toys to give as classic 'first Christmas' landmark gifts, but the SIBI range of rockers, ride-on toys and pushchairs is really something special. Suitable for toddlers, each item is made from high quality light wood and usually left unpainted.
Beautifully finished, their simplicity and style makes them a must for parents who don't want their lovely homes to be reduced to a rest home for too much brightly coloured plastic. But more importantly, these toys are adored by children!
If you check out the Hele Mill website you can instantly get a feel for the amazing wooden toys on offer. The now classic 'LikeaBike' is a bike-shaped wooden ride-along, with chunky wheels and a good centre of gravity, allowing very young children the chance to scoot along and enjoy the beginnings of bike-riding, without the tumbles of first attempts at balancing.
The SIBI Max Ride On has a cool 1950s feel to it and, though it is around £85, it's built to last and has a timeless quality.
If you're feeling flush, a further £85 will buy you the SIBI Lorette trailer which attaches to the back - perfect for when your child wants to have teddy along for the journey!
The SIBI Max and other items from the range, are available from various shops and online companies, including www.lulasapphire.com and stores like Daisy & Tom.
