We are loving being Bigjigs Play Patrol agents
Wooden toys are my absolute favourite as not only do they not require batteries (always a bonus for any parent) but they help to develop the imagination of children.
This month Emmy was sent wooden groceries.
These are everyday groceries I would buy in the shops and that she is used to seeing around the house.
They shapes of the items have been kept the same to help children identify them.
My favourites are the Tomato Ketchup and the tube of biscuits.
Emmy already had a Bigjigs wooden shopping trolley which compliments this toy perfectly. She loves to make her pretend shopping lists, head off to her shop or toy kitchen and fill her trolley with the weekly shop.
I’m not sure what she plans to cook when she returns from her ‘shop’ with sugar cubes and cereal however it will probably be some sort of cake or yummy treat knowing her.
The groceries you receive with this toy are:
- Chocolate Biscuits
- Stock Cubes
- Tea Bags
- Tomato Sauce
- Brown rice
- Sugar Cubes
- Tomato Soup
- Baked Beans
- Plain Flour
- Gravy Granules
- White Rice
- Brown Sugar
- and Oat Cereal
These retail at £27.49 which may sound a lot however when you think of the plastic versions you can buy or even the cardboard box types – they get broken very quickly, I know Emmy’s all did – she would try to open the boxes and they all tore, they got trodden on and ruined within a week. These will last and are hardwearing too so they will last forever and will get past down to Harry at a later date I’m sure.
One thing I should mention is they are heavy!! So please be careful, my two have been fighting over them at times and a few heads have been hit by heavy shopping blocks.
