there was mainly rain, followed by drizzle then more rain…
Luckily Aldi came to the rescue with a delivery of two of
their Busy Books and a Sound Book to help keep my two occupied.
I was especially impressed with the Busy
Books and think they are a complete bargain for £4.99, considering you get a
lovely story, a play mat and 12 figures to play with. Eldest was over the moon having Land of Opposites because it
featured dinosaurs, there was a good selection too, not just 12 of the same
dinosaur. The figures seem sturdy, the
play mat not so much but for £4.99 I am more than happy with what is included and there is plenty of scope for some amazing dinosaur adventures!
The book is educational too, because they learn about
opposites (like near and far, front and back, day and night) and is very bright
and colourful. It is also helpful
having the storage section at the page to keep the dinosaurs and the play mat
safe when not playing. Hopefully stop
any dinosaurs making an escape and getting lost!
The sound book is only £1.99, which is good considering it
has sound obviously and is hardback and of a good quality. This is aged 3+ but my youngest who is 3
tends to prefer longer stories now, if its small he keeps trying to negotiate
for more come bedtime!
are also sticker and activity books, magic painting books, giant chalks and
colouring books all at bargain prices.
Eldest has just started missing school, so am hoping lovely items like
these will keep him focused on being busy and getting creative and the weeks
will whiz by in a blur of happiness for him!
can see more of what is on offer here.
But be quick as those prices I do not see them hanging about, so quickly head to your local store! And not just for summer might be an idea to
hoard some ready for Christmas!
