You’re on the home stretch of the school holidays now but just when you thought it was safe to sit down with a cuppa, they go and throw in a Bank Holiday just to make things reeeeeeally fun.
Keeping the kids amused, not to mention the other one (partner) during the Bank Holiday when it might rain (fingers crossed it won’t) is a challenge that frankly, is making us feel a bit dizzy. It may not be Christmas but perhaps it’s time to cave and take advantage of 20% off toys just in time for the long weekend. And…relax.
We’ve selected some fantastic toys to distract, er we mean stimulate, young minds.
Expending energy doesn’t come easier than with this Stunted Stunt Scooter XT Blue, described as being suitable for the ‘intermediate rider’. High spec, cool design and guaranteed to have your 8-year-old out in the garden for hours. Bliss.
We don’t have the heart to tell our little girls that you’ll rarely find a princess in a kitchen but for now, it’s easier to have them believe that. This Disney Princess Royal Kitchen will provide the tools to create many a cup of tea and plate of cupcakes. With any luck, the washing up will be done afterwards. Approximately 39 inches tall and 15 inches wide.
Perhaps the best photos you can hope to expect from a three-year-old are blurred carpet and a half a dog but if they’re doing it on their own camera, it doesn’t matter. Hello Kitty My 1st Camera is fun and easy to use.
Ok, so they may be too young to watch The Dark Knight Rises but that doesn’t mean that Batman’s sheer awesomeness has gone unnoticed by your boy. In fact, he’s probably tearing around the house trying to fly with a bed sheet as we speak. Make his day with the coolest item at Batman’s disposal – the Batmobile. This Batman Attack Armour Batpod will keep enemies at bay and little monsters too, for a while.
If your kids were hooked on the Olympics then this Scalextric Team GB Velodrome is really going to bring out their competitive streak. You may lose your partner to this toy as well.
For quiet times, sit your little girl down with this Galt Sparkle Card Factory where she can create sparkly cards covered in sequins and pom poms for her bestest friend Jessica to her heart’s content. Glitter gel pens included. Phew.
If you were a fan of the hit TV gameshow then expect this board game to bring all of that nail-biting excitement into your living room. John Adams The Cube is the ultimate test of daring, courage and skill that the whole family can enjoy after Sunday lunch over the Bank Holiday. Only one question remains: can you beat The Cube? With 20% off and your entire family entertained, yes we think so.
If your toddler is always grabbing the remote, give them their own with this Peppa Pig Little TV. Comes with four double sided cards, infa-red remote and plays nine different tunes which are linked to each card theme. Suitable for over 2’s and includes batteries!
