Everyone loves a bank holiday and this bank holiday weekend there’s even more reason to be happy as we’re having a big old sale in our toy department. There’s up to 20% off selected toys just over the long weekend, from Thursday 26th May until Tuesday the 31st.
With half term fast approaching, no doubt all you mums and dads out there will be wanting to stock up on some toys and games to keep the kids busy over the holidays and now is the perfect time to do so.
Here are our top toy picks for this half term:
Trampolines: With the weather hopefully set to keep improving as we move into summer, there’s no reason why the garden should be neglected when it comes to toys. A trampoline might be quite expensive but it’s a fun addition for all the family – plus it’s much more healthy than a new computer game and will get the kids active.
Bikes: Speaking of getting the kids outdoors and active, why not look at getting them a bike, if they don’t already have one? If it’s their first bike you’re looking for then don’t forget the stabilisers. Little girls will love Ben and Holly’s pretty 12″ bike, while Ben 10 wannabes will be enthralled by the addition of a Fireman Sam bike to the garage.
Build something: If your child is the more creative type and loves nothing more than building lego forts, castles or flying around toy planes, then why not opt for a building kit for this half term? There are plenty of lego sets, such as this Jedi Starfighter, or for younger kids there’s also duplo sets for a simpler version. We love this cute farm set. There’s also Meccano and Mega bloks sets – see our Science and Construction section for more details.
Pretend Play: Kids’ biggest toy is their imagination – who else could turn a sofa into a castle, a bed into an island or a washbasket into a boat? Help encourage their playtime adventures with the help of some toys including tool kits, pretend kitchens, cleaning tools, tea sets, cash registers and of course dressing up clothes!
