Jul 2015

The excitement for the Grand Prix this year is huge, and with Silverstone accelerating onto our screens this weekend the need for speed is greater than ever!

We love seeing little children’s fascination with cars, and are delighted to be able to fuel their passion with fun and educational toys such as the Ambi® Toys Lock Up Garage. With three lockable garage doors and colourful cars that are easy for a young child to grip as they take them on an imaginary journey, you may be lucky and they might go on their own magical trip just like this one we caught on camera!

Are your little ones crazy about cars? Do they stare in amazement at every vehicle that drives past? We are giving you the opportunity to win a bundle of wheely good toys! You’ll get an Ambi® Toys Lock Up Garage, a Playnest® Car, Pocket Car and a Racing Cars kit to keep them entertained and on the road to learning through play!

Vroom Vroom! Win A Wheely Good Car Toy Bundle!

Starry Starry Night

26

Jun 2015

Did you know it’s Camping Month? Created to encourage more people to experience the joys of camping, we love the idea of a night under canvas wrapped up nice and warm with an opportunity to do some serious stargazing!

Camping with Dog

Here is a list of things to consider to make your camping trip as fun and educational as possible:

Location

You could spend hours choosing somewhere to camp. Sometimes you’ll want somewhere with great on-site facilities like a swimming pool, games room, restaurant etc. and other times you’ll be happy with a field within easy reach of interesting days out. Away With The Kids has a great list of child friendly campsites to help make the decision easier!

You could also set up a tent in your back garden if you have space. If it’s the first camping experience for your young explorers it might be an easier transition for them. Especially knowing the home comforts are right next door should it all get a bit much for them!

Equipment

Think leaving the house with children for a trip into town requires a lot of items? Take a moment to imagine what you’ll need for a weekend of camping! Many campsites have pre-prepared tents setup taking the cost and hassle out of setting up the tent, but if you want the ‘real experience’ then many modern tents are quite simple to assemble.

Camping

Entertainment

Camping is a great way to get back to basics! No plug sockets to charge the gadgets, simply a football or velcro tennis set is all you need for hours of fun in the fresh air!

If you are travelling far for your camping experience you might want some in-car entertainment, and we have just the thing for you! We have a range of travel activities to keep little minds occupied and stop them asking “Are we there yet?”.

Travel Ideas

Education

No classroom can teach about the solar system whilst replicating the feeling of sitting on a canvas chair in a sleeping bag with a mug of cocoa looking at the sky. Need to brush up on your facts before talking through the night sky? The National Trust has a great list of mind-boggling facts about stargazing for children. Another great source of information is this BBC Stargazing LIVE Activity Pack.

A fitting activity after learning about star formations is the trusty dot-to-dot, and our friends at Activity Village have some great printouts to have fun with:

If you’ve inspired your little ones to discover more about the night sky and beyond they will love Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens!

The Great Outdoors

Jun 2015

The sun has put his hat on for us! It’s been National Picnic Day, British Flowers Week and Nature Photography Day. Plenty of reasons to celebrate being outside in the sunshine!

We went for a wander in the countryside with Song Bird, who thoroughly enjoyed Nature Photography Day, even if the sheep were too shy for a photo shoot!

With the summer heat bringing out bright and beautiful blooms of flowers – from poppies to posies, we’ve got plenty of toys and craft kits to play with flower power!

Ambi Toys Sunflower Rattle – A cheery sunflower rattle to spin, shake, touch and turn. This 2-in-1 rattle can also be used as a teether.
