A big thanks to The Great Toy Guide

December 22, 2009

If you didn’t see me screaming about it on Twitter last week then you may not know that I won some presents for Sam last week. £120 of gorgeous Early Learning Centre goodies for pre school boys. They’re wonderful! Sam has a big wooden garage which he is going to adore, perfect for all the cars that are currently littering both our and my parents’ homes. There’s a build it yourself car (think Craig is rather excited about that one),  a Ben 10 stretchy alien (which I have coveted since I saw Totally Sonny review it), a Ben 10 RV laboratory (Craig’s favourite) and a Ben 10 watch/projector thingymebob.

These really couldn’t have come at a better time. We were struggling to afford everything we wanted for Sam so to have won these just before Christmas was a godsend.

The competition was run by the lovely ladies at The Great Toy Guide. If you haven’t had a look at their website yet then I suggest you do. It has come in so handy over the last few months when I haven’t been able to decide what to buy Sam or other children.  They have a team of fantastic mummy & daddy bloggers who review toys for children aged 0-8. The reviews are always honest and whenever I’ve bought something recommended by them I have completely agreed with what they have said.

A big thank you to everyone at the GTG & ELC for these lovely presents.

I hope The Great Toy Guide don’t mind but I’m a great believer in karma and so have given one of the toys to the Key 103 Christmas Appeal. Our local radio station are gathering toys to give to underprivileged children in the Manchester area.  I don’t think Sam will mind, he was more than happy with just receiving the box (as was Craig).
