It can be so difficult as to know what to buy your children for Eid. I always want to find them something educational yet fun and this year I have organised small Eid Baskets for the girls which contain an Islamic toy and Eid Book, Eid sweets, and some other small things that they will find fun, for example my youngest has a jigsaw puzzle of Bing, one of the characters on Cbeebies.
Here are some of my suggestions for Islamic toys, most of these we have ourselves.
