Last week, Toddler L and I headed into London to attend the launch of two new Little Tikes’ ranges – Little Tikes Baby and Light ‘N Go. As part of this, I’ve once again teamed up with the toy specialists to offer one lucky reader the chance to win the pièce de résistance from the new range – the Light ‘N Go Activity Garden Treehouse worth £89.99. You can enter via Rafflecopter below.
But first, let me tell you a bit more about the new stuff. As the name suggests, the Baby range is for newborns / babies and has been ‘designed to develop’ by addressing their specific development needs through every coo, giggle and stretch. This includes a number of toys such as the Baby Swayin’ Buddies, Baby Peekaboo Seal, Baby Tummy Tunes Giraffe, Baby 3-in-1 Deluxe Soothe and Play Gym.
The baby range is from 0+ months, so they’re obviously a bit young for Toddler L now. However, from what I saw of them at the launch, they would have definitely been something she’d have enjoyed when she was Baby L. I particularly liked the look of the play gym which vibrates, has hanging toys, a moveable mirror, a pillow, music, songs and a toucan which moves across the top.
The Light ‘N Go range is the one I was more interested in. This is Little Tikes’ new infant pre-school toys which are animal-themed and use lights to encourage active play and inspire babies from 6-36 months to walk, cruise and bust-a-move. This range features Go Wobblin’ Lights Panda, 3-in-1 Activity Walker, Catchin’ Lights Tiger, Movin’ Lights Monkey and the Light ‘N Go Activity Garden Treehouse.
The sprog didn’t have chance to play with all of these toys, but she particular took to the monkey, tiger and activity garden treehouse. Not only did all of the toys have a function – e.g. the walker is a walker, the tiger is a pull / push along etc – but the addition of the lights really added something. For example, the tiger can encourage imaginative play as your kid chases the light which comes out of the tiger’s mouth.
I’m a huge fan of Little Tikes and Toddler L has quite a lot of their stuff, ranging from the lil ocean explorers range to a play kitchen to a crazy coupe to a water & sand table to a cape cottage playhouse. It’s great to see that the new range of Baby and Light ‘N Go toys continue to adhere to the same high standards set by their traditional toys, whilst also incorporating modern features to encourage active and imaginative play.
Activity Garden Treehouse Giveaway
The Activity Garden Treehouse – which is what I’m giving away below – is really cool. It can be arranged in two different setups and has over 80 different ways to play. It’s difficult to know where to start with explaining it because it does so much – each individual bit is obviously created to develop different fine motor skills in your little one.
To name a few things, the treehouse has a crawl-through archway, a small slide, ball-play, a clicking clock, swinging doors, a doorbell and a shape-sorter mailbox. The treehouse also has magic lanterns which have three modes of play – explore colours, dance party and collect fireflies. It seems pretty impossible for your todder – or you for that matter – to get bored with all of the stuff on offer!
To be in with the chance of winning a Little Tikes Light ‘N Go Activity Garden Treehouse worth £89.99, simply login to Rafflecopter below and complete one, or a combination, of the optional entry options. Good luck and happy comping!
50/50 Giggles And Graft Survey
As part of the launch, Little Tikes undertook a survey and produced an infographic based on the highs and lows of parenting. The results of which were revealed by Little Tikes’ new play expert and child pyschologist, Emma Kenny. These have been stuck into a pretty infographic below for your perusal.
