Review: Green Toys Build-a-Bouquet, from Bigjigs Toys (GTFLWA1012)

For our final Play Patrol mission, we were given a budget, and permission to choose whatever we wished from the Bigjigs range to review. Lydia enjoys being creative, and loves flowers. Toys that involve building, sorting, and stacking are among her favourites, so I thought that this Build-a-Bouquet toy would be ideal for her.… Continue Reading “Review: Green Toys Build-a-Bouquet, from Bigjigs Toys (GTFLWA1012)”

Review: Bigjigs Toys Butterfly Bead Box #BJ708

Georgie was sent this bead box for her latest Play Patrol mission, and although we are shamefully late posting this review thanks to several illnesses in the family, we have had a lot of fun with this box in the meantime.

The box itself is a wooden tray with a sliding plastic lid, which Georgie can slide in and out herself. Inside the box is a plastic sorting tray full of wooden beads in a riot of colours, including 8 wooden butterflies. You get 5 coloured laces to make your creations with, and we have been making things, then taking them apart to make them differently instead.… Continue Reading “Review: Bigjigs Toys Butterfly Bead Box #BJ708”

Review: Bigjigs Toys Wooden Jungle Magnets (#BJ729)

Lydia was excited as soon as she saw these fridge magnets. She loves animals and finds going to zoos etc fascinating so being able to create animal scenes on the fridge and so on is right up her street.

We are keeping the magnets in the kitchen, stashed away in their handy reusable box in the bottom of the kids stool. Lydia can get them out herself, carrying the box using the handle and sliding the lid open to get the magnets.… Continue Reading “Review: Bigjigs Toys Wooden Jungle Magnets (#BJ729)”

Review: Bigjigs Toys Animal Maracas (#BJ143) and Snazzy Handbells (#BJ193)

For Georgie’s Play Patrol mission, she was sent two pairs of percussion instruments; two snazzy handbells and a pair of animal maracas.

Review: Bigjigs Toys Chunky Train Puzzle (#BB063)

We were sent this Chunky Train Puzzle for Lydia (aka Agent SuperDucky) to try out for our latest Play Patrol mission. Our top secret brief was to get someone else involved in the playtime, so we decided to take ours along to a local blogger meet up – a picnic in the park with lots of kids!… Continue Reading “Review: Bigjigs Toys Chunky Train Puzzle (#BB063)”

Review: Bigjigs Toys Emma 38cm Doll (#BJD022)

It’s time for Lydia’s first official Play Patrol mission, how exciting! Her first toy is a Bigjigs Doll of her very own. Georgie’s favourite toy is a Bigjigs Doll we reviewed yonks ago called Melody, and so it’s really lovely that Lydia has one of her own now – and a relief for Georgie as she no longer has to jealously guard Melody from her little sister!

Emma arrived wrapped in a protective plastic bag with a label attached to the back of her dress. … Continue Reading “Review: Bigjigs Toys Emma 38cm Doll (#BJD022)”

Review: Bigjigs Toys Figure of Eight Roadway Set

We have been playing with wooden railway for the past year, growing our collection, and Georgie thinks it is just great. When we saw that Bigjigs Toys have roadway as part of their range, we knew that we would have to get some for Georgie sometime, as it expands and complements your railway. We were delighted to be sent this figure of eight track to test out, and start off our roadway collection.… Continue Reading “Review: Bigjigs Toys Figure of Eight Roadway Set”

Review: Bigjigs Toys Nurse Nancy Doll

Last year we reviewed a Melody doll from the Bigjigs Dolls range, as part of the fantastic Play Patrol scheme we have been taking part in since last Spring, and she rapidly became Georgie’s favourite toy.
