It is going to be tough, there may be some frustration and outrage from the boys, but we are going to do this, we shall survive a week without electronic toys of any kind.
E.ON have seen a huge increase in the popularity of these types of toys, but I have a good feeling about accepting this challenge from E.ON to bring attention to their Energy Fit survey. Playtime will be revolutionised in our household.
We will have time for more traditional toys, craft activities and making the most of the beautiful outside space where we live and do more of what hubbie and I enjoyed doing from our own childhood.
Although the room looks slightly lost without a television…
But I had to remove temptation, as I can imagine the youngest waiting till my back is turned and sneakily putting Diego on.
Likewise I am having hubbie sweep the playroom to make sure any remaining toys are battery free! I am sat in bed and I can hear cars revving, Mickey announcing his take off into space and other random beeps… am surprised the boys are sleeping through it all.
|The banned bounty!|
I must admit I am a little nervous but the boys have had enough time to mentally prepare. Although being informed in advance about the process and actually living the experience might be two quite different things. But just think of all the energy we will save, leaving more money for the pleasurable things in life… like cake, chocolate and biscuits!
I wonder how long I will survive before I start rocking in the corner… I am quite fortunate missing day one of the challenge as I am off to London to help judge the UKMums.tv ‘Mums Choice Awards’, so hubbie is under strict orders about what toys can and cannot be played with! But with everything safely squirreled away he should cope admirably.
