The ten best musical toys

1. John Lewis This CD player not only enables kids to listen to their favourite music, but to sing along as well. With two detachable microphones included, they can invite friends round for a go too. 4+ Price: £40, johnlewis.com
2. VTech The Kidi Pop & Rock is a guitar, piano and drum rolled into one. It features three music styles - rock, jazz and hip hop - along with plenty of rhythms, sound effects and melodies. You can also record and play back your own creations. 3-6 Price: £24, woolworths.co.uk
10. Fisher Price Ok, so some parents may groan out loud if you give one of these to their child. But once they see Dance Star Mikey walking, talking and dancing to six different songs (even doing the Moonwalk) even they'll have to crack a smile. 2+ Price: £89, hamleys.com

Giving little ones noise-making toys can be fun and educational (if your eardrums can stand it)

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
