Children's baskets

A selection of baskets either for play, sleeping in, or to help keep a child's room tidy.

Willow can be washed ! Children, especially babies, are prone to accidents. If your child manages to make a mess in or on one of these baskets, my recommendation is to wash it (hosing with cold water will work for most things) and leave it outside to dry. When the basket has dried completely, take it back indoors.
