Sometimes, no matter how thickly you rug up, it's just too cold and wet to go outside! Here in Auckland, we're no strangers to frosty mornings and long rainy days. While parents may love the idea of a quiet afternoon by the heater with thick blankets, hot chocolate, and a good book, the little ones in the house still need to be kept busy.

Shake off the overcast gloom with some of our favourite indoor toys that add a touch of colour and sunshine to those dreary winter months.

Follow the rainbow

Start by setting the scene and including some fun kids décor. We love the gentle glow from the Origami Room Lights or for a more scientific challenge for older kids try building Solar System Lights.

Build a rainbow with the Kinderfeets Rainbow Arch the beautiful handmade pieces can stack, balance, and inspire hours of creativity as your child explores and imagines. These pieces can easily combine with other toys to become fences on a farm, hills for cars or a bed for a plush toy- the only limit is your imagination.

For a more physical challenge, the Kinderfeet Balance Board this ingenious but straightforward balance board is small enough to be used indoors but provides hours of balancing, sliding and rocking fun. Good news for parents, the boards are rated to support 220kg so that you can play too!

Educational toys

Introduce your pre-schoolers to family board games, with an educational twist. Colour and shape matching meets luck based play in the Race to the Rainbow board game by The Learning Journey.

Craft offers hours of entertainment and endless possibilities. From Spin Art to Suncatchers, or simply kids colouring books, there are dozens of ways to create your own rainbow and forget about the grey skies outside.

The weather outside doesn't need to dictate the mood inside the house, and winter blues are easy to chase away with some fun and colour. Whatever you're looking for, Kids N Toys has the answer for you, with fast dispatch and unmatched customer service.

Stay warm, and have fun!
