We’ve previously hunted out cheap-but-expensive-looking accents for your bedroom and your kitchen, and now it’s time to look at the nursery. For new parents wanting to personalise their little one’s space, or an auntie or uncle on the hunt for a gift, we’ve scoured Amazon to find the best cheap (but expensive-looking) accents. Below, everything from a delightful cheese-themed toy to a traditional dollhouse for a great price.

Asweets Kids Teepee

They’re never too young for a reading nook — and this one is half the price of others on the market.

Wooden Cheese-and-Mouse Lacing Puzzle

This mouse-and-cheese puzzle, designed to develop hand-eye coordination, is also the kind of toy you’d love to leave lying around.

Tekemai Night-light for Kids

A friendly face for nighttime.

Milan Harlequin Geometric-Triangles Rug

This yellow and grey geometric runner would be great in a hallway or bedroom, but we like the idea of it jazzing up a nursery.

Faux-Fur Cow-Print Rug

Or what about adding a touch of yeehaw instead?

ARTSTORE Children’s Floor Play Game Mat

This play mat has a minimalist design, which makes it feel quite elegant for 12 pounds.

HelloHome Sling Bookcase, White

A great way to show-off and stow away books.

Wooden Bookcase With 3 Shelves, Grey

We also like this dark-grey design.

Vencipo White Floating Shelves (Set of Two)

Some floating shelves would be a nice way to display assorted objects without taking up floor space.

Acctim 22522 Wickford Kids Wall Clock

The bold colours and simple design give this a Tate-gift-shop feel.

Rainbow Rain Print, 8x10 Inches

This print would look nice against a white wall. (Note: it comes unframed.)

Elephant Nursery Wall Art, A4

This watercolour print is also charming.

Bear Nursery Print, 8x10 Inches

Or how about going full-on minimalism with this black-and-white bear?

East Coast Clara Dresser, White

The open shelving can be used for storage or display (also available in grey and antique brown).

Babymore Sleigh Changer With Drawer, White

This sturdy changer also comes with drawer space.

Forest-Animal Mobile

This Nordic-inspired mobile is made of felt and will entertain little ones while looking stylish.

Wood and Felt Mobile

We also like this wood and felt mobile for its interesting shapes and textures.

White Layered Rain-Cloud Pendant Light Shade

This handmade pendant shade looks like it costs a lot more than £15.

Goodpick Extra-Large Cotton Rope Basket

A rope laundry basket in neutral, muted hues.

Lifewit Laundry Hamper

This hamper has extendable straps, so you can carry it with ease.

Woven Seagrass Belly Basket

This large rope basket is easy to take from room to room, so it would make a useful washing basket.

Creative Deco Wooden Stool

A stool is essential for big and little guests. This rectangular one is simple but stylish.

Children’s Solid Wooden Stool

We also like this darker-stained round stool, which can be tucked away when not needed.

Tommee Tippee Twist and Click Nappy Bin

This bin holds 30 nappies, and individually seals each one to prevent odours from spreading.

Tiowo Creative Avocado Plush Toy

This plush avocado is ridiculous, and we love it.

Lulalula Plush-Toy Banana

We also love this goofy banana.

Akozon Wooden Blocks (Set of 20)

A set of stylish wooden blocks that would look good in any room.

Wooden Building Blocks

Or how about some colour? We like these chalky-hued blocks.

HILIROOM Wooden Victorian Dollhouse

This is a good price for a dollhouse, which can cost three times as much.

Hape Family Pets

These would make an appropriate gift for new parents.

Elephant Bunting

Bunting adds colour and texture to a nursery. This yellow and grey set features tiny elephants.

Fabric Bunting

Or how about these fabric ones, which come in a range of different styles (we like the blue hues)?

Giant Polar-Bear Plush Cushion (100 cm.)

A giant polar bear is less sensible (but way more fun) than a teddy bear.

Ukallaite Toy Gift Shark Plush (100 cm.)

But even a polar bear is sensible compared to this giant plush whale shark.

Labebe Baby Rocking Horse

A tasteful, minimalist rocker is a nice decorative item they can play with as they get older.

Jolie Vallée Wooden Lamb-Shaped Rocking Horse

… but consider this comical rocking sheep instead.

Wooden Penguin Russian Dolls

These stacking penguins are hand-painted and would be at home on a floating shelf or a bookcase.
