A (toddler) toy story
How sweet are these toys from The Early Learning Centre? Each of the different characters has moveable heads, clicky arms and legs, and soft silicon ears that are good for gnawing on. They are suitable for children aged 12 months+, and have been created to subtly shoehorn in fine motor skills and spark little imaginations.
We were sent the elephant, robot, soldier and the dolly to review (they’re really fun and our house is divided about the best one; Eliza likes the elephant, Alex the robot, and me the solider). How far into your Christmas shopping are you? At £4 each and about the height of a Diet Coke can they would make great stocking presents, and ideal if you have to buy little presents for a larger group of children.
The Rosie Rabbit toy also has her own nifty – and very pink – set of wheels. You can get both in a set for £10, but we were also sent this to play with. The signs so far are that she’s a much better driver than I am.
I remember loving the Early Learning Centre when I was younger; my mum would take us in to play with the wooden train sets. I’ve also bought Eliza the Royal Baby Happyland set from there for Christmas (shh – don’t tell her!). I wonder if Rosie Rabbit will be up for giving Kate and Prince George a lift to the shops?
