Christmas Gift Giveaway #26 - WIN a Wooden Kitchen

Whether your budding chefs are hoping to rustle up a family feast or prepare a picnic for their bears, this beautiful wooden kitchen from George is great for imaginative play!

This deluxe kitchen has an oven, cupboard, drawer, sink with tap, 4 hobs, microwave and a window complete with gingham curtain. There is a clock with movable hands, 4 utensils and 3 dials on the cooker which click when turned. The top can also be used as a shelf to store little pots and pans which is handy. Little ones will adore this set and I would definitely recommend it, especially at just £40!

It's suitable for children aged 3+ and it is painted (child safe) in red and blue with cherry detailing for a vintage style finish. It also means that it's unisex and both boys and girls will be happy to get cooking with this. It coordinates with the rest of the products in the range so if you want to purchase further accessories they will all match nicely.

There are lovely tea and cooking sets available for lots of role play.

Made from a combination of wood and MDF it is a really strong toy and it's certainly going to last if passed down to siblings over the years. There is something about wooden products that I really like, they just seem to be far better quality than plastic alternatives and this kitchen is proof of that. 
It's quite heavy in weight as well which makes it stable.

Assembly only took the Mr 20 minutes and he found the instructions easy to follow - there is a video tutorial on how to put it together on the website though which is really useful too! Once constructed it measures 89 x 60 x 30cm in size so although it's perfectly proportional for pre-schoolers, it should be relatively easy to find a corner to place it out of the way when required also.

Christmas Gift Giveaway #25 - WIN a Moochies (Phone Watch)

Moochies are phones for kids. Worn exactly like a watch and coming in four colours (black, orange, pink and blue), a Moochie is a durable phone and watch combination, allowing two-way communication between parents and children. 

Working in tangent with the free Moochies app on the parents phone, it enables parents to be in touch with their children at all times of the day, wherever they are - be it at school, on public transport or with their friends at the local park. 

Working with a sim card, just like a mobile phone, Moochies allows a child to ring two phone numbers (mum and dad, for example), while also allowing up to twenty people to ring them. Moochies also ensures no strangers can ring a child, with only contacts pre-approved by the parent having permission to ring their child’s device.

If a child gets into trouble, Moochies also has a SOS button - once pressed, it alerts the app holder that the child is in trouble and sends a 15 second recording of all the sounds around the child straight to the parent’s phone for them to listen to. Moochies is also GPS trackable, which means the app holder can see where their child is at any time, giving enormous peace of mind.
