We were sent a delightful bundle of
The Very Hungry Caterpillar products to coincide with the 45th
anniversary of the book! It’s hard to
believe it’s been around quite that long but I do remember it fondly from my own
childhood and I am 35 now! My two boys
enjoyed their introduction to The Very Hungry Caterpillar a few years ago their
book is now looking a little dog-eared as its one story they return to again
Eric Carle’s book has such lovely
illustrations; it’s a real page-turner.
It’s funny hearing what the caterpillar eats and children cannot get
enough of it. Since its original
release its enchanted many children through the years and the range has
developed considerably in that time.
Alongside the lovely books that have been translated into over 60
languages, you can now get interesting craft supplies (chalks shaped like
strawberries and a cute stamper set both priced at RRP £9.95) and toiletries (hand soap and
bubble bath, RRP £3.50 each).
If your children already love the
story the accompanying products will go down well with them. I think they are ideal for Christmas or even
baby showers, as the cloth book (RRP £10.99) means you can share the magic of
the story with your baby from a younger age.
The divided plate (RRP £7.95) is handy too; I always used these when
mine were little to portion out their lunch more temptingly. On an appealing plate they were always more
receptive to eating their healthy snacks!
If your decking out a nursery the
wall stickers look the part brightening up the space and adding an educational
element with the numbers and counting.
Currently priced at £8 on Amazon
they cover a reasonable area for the money.
I was very happy to
join in the 45th birthday celebrations, long may The Very Hungry
Caterpillar delight and charm children.
