New Wooden Toys

For the last few weeks I have been looking at wooden toys as a huge fan of them for my two kids I would like to share some good finds that have come across.

First up New range from Asda Direct -

George Home 2 in 1 Wooden Play Shop & Cafe


Image rights to Asda - 
Let's dream up a yummy scrummy world and serve up some fun with the George Home 2 in 1 Wooden Play Shop and Cafe! Whether your budding businessperson is in the mood for getting busy serving delicious drinks and treats in their very own cafe or setting up shop with a range of gorgeous groceries on display, there's twice the fun with two ways to play!

The robust George Home Wooden 2 in 1 Shop and Cafe's clever design means it's easy to rotate with its gliding castor wheels when it's time to shut the shop and open the cafe. Its vintage themed red and blue colours (which coordinate with the whole George Wooden Toys range of play kitchen equipment and accessories), cherry motif and cute gingham canopy mean that, as well as providing hours of role-play, it'll also look stylish wherever your child decides to set up shop around the house!

Kids learn best when they're having fun, and with the blackboard shop-fronts where your child can write the name of their cafe and today's daily specials, there's plenty of scope to have fun practicing writing. Not only that, 'buying' and 'selling' their wares is a great introduction to the concept of the value of money and simple sums!

Features Included:

  • Robustly built shop & cafe set (made from a mixture of MDF & solid wood)
  • Painted in (toy safe) George Home Kids designed colours, bearing unique cherry/vintage theme colours
  • Finish to match the rest of the range in George Wooden Toys

  • Take Dolly out for a stroll in this pretty-as-a-picture pram. Whether your little one needs to pop to the shops to buy Dolly a treat, take her to the doctor's for a check-up or just fancies a walk in the sunshine to show off her favourite companion, she can do so in style with the gorgeous George Home Wooden Dolls Pram!

  • This robustly built wooden pram features turning wooden wheels and a sturdy pram handle that means pushing the pram across the floor is child's play even for little hands!

For added warmth and style why not pop the matching George Dolly Bedding Set in the pram to ensure especially sweet dreams on the go?

  • Little ones will love proudly showing off their sleeping dolly as they push her around the house in her pram. And the good news is that while Dolly sleeps, your child gets some great Dolly and me active play - perfect for getting some exercise around the house on a rainy day! There's not too much effort involved for mum and dad though as the pram only takes around 30 minutes to assemble!

    Autumn Themed Sensory Play

     autumn themed sensory play

    Today as its been not so good weather we have been thinking of some sensory activities and came up with an Autumn themed sensory play.

    Some of you might remember that I bought a fantastic bargain last week which was the sand & water table from Tesco's coming in at only £4.39 as a clubcard holder you could get more from your points. 
    As £5 = £10 in value so should of been £14.39 but got it for £4.39 

    So I set about going to my local Country Baskets to see what I could find and sure was not disappointed as they had a huge selection of Autumn wonders.

    Found some 

    Mini pumpkins & pine-cones
    Plastic Autumn gems
    Silver balls
    Autumn coloured bits of wood

    Wooden stars
    Some larger red balls + other bits

    Then placed them all in the table for my two kids to play with, have to say is more for my daughter who is disabled with hydrocephalus as she has a lot of problems one been sensory. 
     autumn sensory

    Very simply & the best thing about it is that its was not very expensive so are more cost effective way. If your a family like me and cant afford the prices of sensory products at high value this one is perfect.

    Utilize sensory input from the start as its so important for development as they learn though engaging activities such as these.

    • helps build neural connections that support thought, learning, and creativity.
    • Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine/gross motor skills, problem solving/reasoning, and social interaction.

                                                             And having fun!
