Recent baby buys #Toys

Last week I went shopping at Lakeside in Essex. Well we didn't actually make it to the shopping centre but visited a few shops in the retail parks including Kiddicare. The last time I was there Eliot was a five month bump!
My intention was to buy a highchair in preparation for weaning but that plan was swiftly abandoned  and  I came away with some of his first Christmas presents.
Here is what I bought...


L
Polka Party Walker £19.99
Buzzing Brains Rocking Rings £5.59
Vtech Nursery Rhymes Book £7.48
Buzzing Brains Pound-a-ball £7.48
Eliot will be exactly six months on boxing day so I'm sure he will be ready for the walker. I thought this was a bargain at the reduced price of £19.99. I like the fact the toy is removable so that he can also play with other toys on the tray and perhaps have snacks on it. It has two height positions so will adapt as Eliot grows.

I really love the Buzzing Brains stacking ring, they are bright and colourful. I particularly like that two of the rings have beads/balls inside for more stimulation.

I remember buying a Vtec musical book for my niece years ago. I just adore the words, pictures, music all combined into a robust book that can be wiped clean without any pages that can be torn.

Last but not least I picked up the pound-a-ball toy which is recommended from 12 months but I'm sure Eliot will use it before then. It will be perfect to help develop hand-eye co-ordination.

All of the toys were reduced but I was very disappointed when I discovered that both Buzzing Brains toys had 50% off a couple of days later. I emailed Kiddicare to see if I could refund the difference without trekking to our nearest store but they said they couldn't, I went would have to go to a store. The difference is only just over a fiver but with Christmas approaching quickly we could all do those little savings!

What toys have you bought for your little ones this Christmas?
Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate comments and read all of them!
