As you know our family has had a tumultuous month, what with moving house and the associated stresses, so when a massive box arrived at our house last week everyone was excited to see what was inside. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. In the box was a fab selection of toys for a range of ages, perfect for our three girls. Thanks Fisher-Price!
The Kid Tough Video Camera and Kid Tough Digital Camera were both massive hits. We now have A LOT of video footage of tiny feet and the floor! And the Dora with gorgeous butterfly fairy wings was played with for a little while, until an over curious 1yo ripped one of the wings off! Luckily, my children are quick to move on and move on they did. Except this time they haven’t moved on. They are OBSESSED with their Doodle Bears which come with special pens you can draw on them with. My girls love drawing. And when not drawing on the bears, they use the lids to make rainbow hands!
When the bears get covered in pen doodlings, you just throw them in the washing machine and then the dryer and they come out clean as new. This is fantastic for two reasons. Firstly, having a child with asthma means the teddy doesn’t get too dusty which is fab. Secondly, it keeps the kids amused for hours! I don’t think the girls were that excited though when they caught me throwing “Lovely”, “Goo Goo” and “Kee Kee” into the dryer! Personally, I found it strangely thrilling! Bah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!
Next time we hope Fisher-Price send us these (because we’re not greedy AT ALL)…
Oh, and this person…
… to get all the packaging off the toys as it takes FORVER and if it’s going to take that long I might as well have someone hot to look at!
