Need a hand keeping the house in shape? Well why not get the kids involved, or at least keep them busy playing so you can whip round with the vacuum! It seems to be a constant battle in our house to keep on top of things, I’ll clean and then turn my back and it’s back to how it was.
Whilst it’s probably not fair to expect the children to do all the housework they can have fun playing at it and the Melissa & Doug Let’s Play House! range is perfect for that. L has always enjoyed playing at cleaning, which is odd as he won’t tidy his room for love nor money, and he would have loved some of these toys when he was younger. In fairness he’d probably love them now.
After one particularly traumatising haircut I took him to a little toyshop in town for him to pick out something new for being brave, surrounded by dinosaurs, tractors, cars and Lego what did he choose? He chose a toy broom. Now a couple of years later he still plays with the broom, sometimes it’s come in handy as he really has used it for cleaning but mainly it’s just kept him happy.
Anyway, I’m rambling now. Onto the competition.
As I mentioned Melissa & Doug, makers of wonderful wooden toys for children, have a great Let’s Play House! range and I have not one, but two lovely bundles to giveaway. You could win the Dust, Sweep & Mop and Vacuum Cleaner for your little one, worth over £50.
Let’s Play House! Dust, Sweep & Mop is suitable for ages 3+ (RRP £29.99) it’s a great set and can be bought from Amazon or Very.
This six-piece play set gives kids all the housekeeping tools they need to keep it clean! Sized just for kids and built to last, the broom, mop, duster, dust pan, and hand brush are comfortable to use and easy to store-just hang them from the sturdy cords onto the included stand for neat, compact storage. (The dust pan can also snap onto any of the handles.) Natural-wood handles add durability and a classic look; bright pops of colour keeps lots of fun in the mix!
Let’s Play House! Vacuum Cleaner is again suitable for ages 3+ (RRP £24.99) and can be purchased from Amazon and many good independent toy shops.
This kid-sized wooden vacuum cleaner is a lot of fun! Roll over the eight wooden pieces (cereal, popcorn, pretzel, button, ring, bandage, paper clips, coin) and watch them disappear into the base. Lift the lid to empty it out and scatter to scoop them up again! A dial on the handle turns and clicks. The set comes with a reusable cleaning checklist that hangs on the back of the tilting handle and extra game ideas for kids three and older. The sturdy wooden vacuum is easy to assemble (one simple step), and requires no batteries or bags!
