We are very lucky that we have quite a lot of toys for Erin to play with but she can get bored of them quite quickly. We’re always looking for new and interesting things for her to play with, and also to help her learn. BRIO is one of our favourite brands for toys and we were recently sent the BRIO Play & Learn Musical Caterpillar for Erin to try. I have never seen a toy like this before so I was really excited to play with it for the first time with Erin. Before you can starting playing with the BRIO Play &
For as long as I can remember Erin has loved Paw Patrol. It was the first cartoon she ever liked and she still loves it now she’s nearly 3. We’re not quite yet at the stage where Erin wants to play with the expensive figures and sets so we’re always on the look out for something else Paw Patrol themed for her to play with. Ravensburger recently sent us the Paw Patrol 4 x Large Shaped Puzzles in a Box for Erin to try though and here’s what we thought of them! The puzzles come very simply packaged in only a
Yesterday we showed you the Birds In A Nest Sorting Set from Learning Resources. We’re currently trying to find new toys for Erin that are both educational and fun and today we’ll be reviewing Learning Resources‘ Friendly Farm Counters. The Friendly Farm Counters come as a set of 72 in a large plastic container. This set has a RRP of only £14.50 so you get a whole lot of pieces for the price. The set consists of 6 different animal shapes, in 6 different colours and 2 sizes. Essentially, you get a parent and baby of each animal in each colour. Sets like
Sometimes Erin gets into a mood where she doesn’t really want to play with toys. She’s such a creative child and she would much prefer to do something arty or crafty so I have a cupboard stocked full of things for her to do. One of her favourites though is to play with dough. She asks for it over and over again but just playing with the dough on its own can get a bit boring. Recently we were sent the Nick Jr. Ready Steady Dough Super Duper Dough Set and Erin was super excited as soon as she saw it.
My sister is a bit of a sucker for letting Erin have what she wants sometimes and has a hard time saying no to her, especially if we’re in a shop! One day Erin discovered Hatchimals and since then it’s been her favourite thing. If that girl sees a Hatchimals egg, she wants it! We were so excited when we were sent some products from the brand new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 3! Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 3 has over 100 characters to collect and there are various different products you can buy. The prices range from £2.99 to £24.99 and I really
Erin is becoming more and more interested in learning in different ways but most of all, she loves to play games and we are huge fans of Orchard Toys. Erin already has a few different games but we were recently sent One Dog, Ten Frogs which is a numbers and pairs game. One Dog, Ten Frogs is aimed at children aged 3 and up and while Erin isn’t 3 until January, she is really doing well with learning numbers so I thought this would be a great choice for her at the moment. Inside the box you get 30 discs which are
Finding Erin smaller toys to play with is really easy. Smaller toys can hold her attention for roughly 30-45 minutes maximum but a lot of them won’t last more than a couple of months at best. Erin is now at an age where how she plays can change quite quickly but it’s important to also find toys that she can grow up with as well. Recently we have been playing with the WOW Toys Activity Table and here’s what we thought. The activity doesn’t come assembled but it does only come in 5 pieces and a bag of fixings. John
Although Erin goes to nursery for 3 days a week we still have 4 days together at home. Since starting nursery back in January the way that Erin likes to play has changed. Her imagination is fantastic and she really loves to be creative. At the same time, she likes to learn something new so I’m always on the look out for new and exciting things for her to play with. Feeling uninspired by the regular places I shop at, I decided to give Wicked Uncle a try. Wicked Uncle is a bit different to other toy shops because of
