If you haven’t come across Jacques of London before they make amazing wooden toys and games for babies up to 5+. We were really excited to review some of their toys, especially when I found out one was a London bus!
We were gifted the products in this review, but opinions are my own (and Ashley’s).
Jacques is the oldest games and sports manufacturer in the world and invented many games that you’ll know and love. They are responsible for creating Snakes and Ladders, Ping Pong, Croquet, Ludo, Tiddledy Winks, Snap and many more. All of their toys are designed and approved by UK teachers and they’ve made sure there are developmental benefits in all of them.
The first thing to point out about all toys from Jacques is that they come beautifully wrapped in recyclable boxes and ribbon bows. This makes them a perfect gift as you can have them delivered straight to the recipient, knowing that they come gift wrapped.
We were lucky enough to receive two toys from Jacques to review and the first one we chose was a bright red London Bus. Ashley is always on the look out for buses on our walks, especially double decker buses. When she unwrapped the bus her face lit up and she was so excited to play with it.
The open top bus has a removable top level and 8 wooden people that you can sit on either the top of bottom level. Ashley genuinely loves this toy and hasn’t stopped playing with it since she got it two weeks ago. It’s perfect for imaginative play and Ashley makes all the people move around the bus, chatting to each other and finding a seat for them.

Dinosaur Car Park
Jacques have a great range of dinosaur toys so for our second choice we went for the Dinosaur Car Park. This combines two of Ashley’s favourites dinosaurs and cars so it was also a massive hit. The cars race down the sloped track and she loves seeing how quickly she can get them all down.
The dinosaurs are a bit of a random addition to the toy but watching Ashley play with it showed that they work together. The car park on it’s own would be a great toy and the dinosaurs are just an added bonus, bringing an extra level of imaginative play. It’s like getting two toys in one! It’s an absolute bargain at under £10 too!
