After Dutch Sinterklaas, Christmas and quite a few birthdays my usually overflowing gift cupboard is starting to look a little bare. As the next party invites have already come in and our upcoming visit to Holland is just a few short months away I have a good excuse to browse the latest sale at Bright Buttons Toys. At the moment you can save 15% on your order by entering the code ‘Final15’, a pretty good deal I think but you better hurry as this offer ends March 10, 2012. This is what I have my eyes on:
With a 24 hour plane trip in mind I really like the idea of the My Kitchen Play Book ($56.95 now $48.41, 4+). This fabric book looks absolutely gorgeous and would definitely keep my twins entertained for ages. There is lots to learn about the kitchen: what are all the items called, what do you use them for, where do you store them and of course how do you spell the words. The pieces stick to the pages with velcro and the book closes all around with a zip, keeping everything safely together and making it perfect for travelling.
One of my other top picks in store would be the Balancing Baker by Alex Toys ($29.95, 2+), a colourful, fun game that can help teach children about weight, balance, counting, colours, size and no doubt many other things. This wooden toy is durable and timeless and I know my kids would love it! At the moment you can scoop up this friendly baker for just $25.46 if you enter the code Final15 at checkout.
The Rhyming Snap ($31.95, now $27.16) game would be a brilliant addition to our game cupboard, taking the classic game of snap to the next level by also training reading and rhyming skills. It comes in a sturdy storage box (a welcome change from the flimsy cardboard packs) and contains two sets of 80 cards so there is plenty of rhyming fun to be had. Plane, crane… snap! Down, clown… snap! Great game to use in the class room, to keep at grandma’s and of course for rainy days at home.
