Who has been watching the Olympics with their kids? I have been – I love that it gives us all a chance to watch elite athletes competing in sports we may not otherwise be exposed to, and the kids have become armchair experts in all kinds of disciplines. I even caught Master A attempting to try out some of the trampolining moves in the back yard yesterday, while little Master J is a natural gymnast… although I do wish he wouldn’t use the living room furniture as his apparatus!
For quieter Olympics play, I absolutely love the Playmobil Sports & Action series of toys available at Little Sprout – www.littlesprout.com.au. where for a tiny $6.45 per set you can buy competitors in Judo, Beach Volleyball, Gymnastics, Tennis, Cycling and more. These little sets are even better value when you take the excellent European quality into account – I absolutely swear by Playmobil when buying toys for my kids.
There’s plenty of other wonderful educational toys available at Little Sprout as well. Speaking of European quality, how about the Kovap range of vehicles? Made by one of the last manufacturers of tin plate toys, and located in the Czech Republic, these little cars and trailers are scaled 1:43 and feature rubber wheels. I also love the Doodle Art range of posters, wonderfully detailed line drawings that can take up to 60 hours to colour in fully. What a challenge!
If you’re in search of a bargain, be sure to see the Sophie The Giraffe range of furniture which is all marked down by 25%. This much-loved character is a great addition to a nursery or playroom, and the neutral colourway means the range will fit in with any decor. Plus, every order at Little Sprout will receive a FREE copy of the children’s classic book ‘Where Is The Green Sheep’ by Mem Fox, valued at $14.95. There’s no minimum spend required, and even if you have the book already you can put your free copy away in your gift drawer. To redeem this offer enter the code GreenSheep at checkout by 31 August 2012.
