We were recently sent some Chad Valley Toys to review as part of their #100daysofplay which started this summer, and encouraged parents up and down the country to share fun playtime ideas on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
We’re a wee bit late to the party, but better late than never.
Christmas is coming up fast, and there are always good reasons to check out good toys for our kids. I’d like to see 100 days of play increased to 365 days, as every child should have a day of play, every day, so I’ll be interested to see where the future of the campaign lies. You can see how the summer one shaped up on the Chad Valley social media platforms.
The current campaign is “Time to Play.”
Play is great and it helps stimulate our children’s imaginations.
Chad Valley says:
Experts have proven that just 15 minutes open play a day can make an enormous difference to the development of your child; sparking curiosity and originality. With over 300 toys to choose from – everything from brilliant infant and pre-school toys for babies and toddlers, to fun packed toys for boys and girls, there’s lots of fun for every child! We’ve also developed free stories and play ideas, to help inspire you and your little ones.

Middler is really a wee toot in a big body, so we go through a fair amount of toys that are built for the hands of little ones. Some brands can hold their own and others struggle with big hands which play with toys that are made for little ones.
The sheer size of the package was enough to send middler into cloud nine. There was no way to make him wait after school, so it was eagerly opened.
His eyes popped when he saw the fire engine. That’s understandable as he is vehicle daft, and particularly diggers, tractors, fire engines and police cars. This was the perfect toy for him. Unfortunately, the space hopper was just too small for us, so it has gone to a good home, with a lovely wee girl who will enjoy it immensely for her birthday in a couple of weeks.
The fire engine has had some tlc almost daily since our package arrived, which is always nice to see.
Thank you very much Chad Valley, and my sincerest apologies for such a late response from the Scottish Mum House.
