#WearYellowForSeth

27

Mar 2015

Like many of you, we saw the video from Seth on YouTube last week and instantly wanted to get involved and show our support for such a lovely young man and the wonderful Bubble Foundation who care for him and his family, as well as other children in similar circumstances.

We contacted the Bubble Foundation straight away and offered to send out a Marble Racer as this could be disinfected to go inside Seth’s hospital room, as well as provide a constantly changing activity to keep him occupied each day due to the fact there is no ‘right’ way to build a Marble Racer set – you can connect each part however you like!

Our Twitter and Facebook pages have turned yellow (Seth’s favourite colour) for the day to join in with the thousands of people around the world who are wearing yellow today at the request of young Seth.

The Bubble Foundation treat babies born without an immune system, as you can imagine a heart-breaking condition, and those left untreated would sadly die by their first birthday, and older children with other immunodeficiencies who would die by early adulthood. You can donate here - and learn about where your donations will be going in the video below.

Are you wearing yellow for Seth today? Tweet us @GaltToys or post to our Facebook page so we can see!

British Science Week

19

Mar 2015

It’s British Science Week and we have been seeing lots of great content online!

The British Science Association has also created this fantastic activity sheet to help educate children about the solar eclipse!

We wanted to get involved with the fun of Science Week so picked up the Horrible Science kits that we have available on our website and had a great time making some bouncy eyeballs!

Horrible Science Bouncy Eyeballs

The first step is to make the pupils by placing a small amount of dark crystals in the scoop, then pour into the plastic mould.

Then fill up the rest of the mould with the green glow-in-the-dark crystals.

Place the mould into the beaker of water for 2 minutes. It has lots of little holes around the sphere to allow water to reach the crystals and bond together into a ball.

Horrible Science Bouncy Eyeballs

Remove the mould from the water and stand to one side for another 2 minutes, before carefully removing the plastic mould and revealing your bouncy eyeball!

The kit has enough to make three of these glow-in-the-dark eyeballs and includes an activity guide including a juggling challenge! There are also different crystals and a larger mould to make a big bouncy eyeball!

Rocky Jocky Goes Racing!

13

Mar 2015

There’s one toy who has been getting very excited this week with Cheltenham Fever! The Ambi Toys Rocky Jocky hasn’t stayed still all week, and with the Gold Cup just hours away the rocking will only increase!

Rocky Jocky isn’t short of support from his friends either, with the entire Ambi Toys range including Oscar Octopus, Tommy Toot, Peter Penguin and Cool Cat cheering him on.

Even though Rocky Jocky didn’t qualify to take part in the Gold Cup this year, he will be racing to get in front of a TV screen to rock along with the action and dream that he is taking part – which is exactly what he was designed to do, encouraging fantasy play whilst simultaneously teaching cause and effect.

Ambi Toys are well designed and reliable toys, available right here on the Galt Toys website!
