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
When it comes to toys Erin really loves playsets that come with little figures. She has a fantastic imagination and can spend hours getting the people to do different things and I love to watch her play. While she got a few sets for Christmas, I like to rotate her toys so she doesn’t get bored of them quickly. Recently we were sent the WOW Toys Pippa’s Princess Carriage for Erin to try! The set includes horse, carriage and two figures and costs £22.99. Pippa’s Princess Carriage is suitable for children aged 1 ½ – 5 years. Pippa’s Princess Carriage is a
Now that Erin is at nursery 3 days a week I am finding that she plays quite differently than she used to. I love how going to nursery has made Erin so much more imaginative and creative but this has also meant having to learn how to play with her in new ways. We were recently sent the WOW Toys Adventure Playmat and I couldn’t wait to show Erin. The playmat is really quite large so you need a decent sized clear space for it. Luckily though, the WOW Toys Adventure Playmat comes rolled up in a plastic case. Children’s toys can
For quite some time Erin was the least girly girl. I made a choice to not dress her in pink very often and she doesn’t really wear dresses much either. Erin is also a bit of a bulldozer of a toddler too and not at all delicate. However, just before Christmas Erin started to show an interest in dolls. When VTech offered to send Erin the Little Love Baby Talk of course we said yes! I couldn’t wait to see her reaction to it. The Little Love Baby Talk doll is aimed at children from age 2 and has a RRP
