The Night Before My Birthday
The Night Before My Birthday
by Natasha Wing
Edition: Paperback
Price: 2.33

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great book that prepared my (now) two year old son for his birthday party. It's cleverly illustrated and written so that you never see the narrating child's face so it could be about a boy or a girl. I love all the books by this author in the night before series (we also have the night before Easter, Father's Day and Thanksgiving).

4.0 out of 5 stars Alphabet alliteration, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My toddler loves this book because of the alliteration. Cute way to teach the alphabet. The phrases get stuck in his head so he walks around saying them throughout the day. Cute!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to affix to wall in bath but works great, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This doesn't come with anything to affix to the wall in the bath or anywhere else and there isn't any way to do so. But it works great and our son loves it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely made and challenging for a two year old, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Challenging for my 25 month old to get the wooden pieces off the pegs but that's a good thing! Each peg is actually made of plastic and bends at the base so that your child can't poke themselves terribly if they fall on top of it. The pegs also have two sets of knobs (one high, one low) to work the wood piece over. Requires dual dexterity in that the pieces must be simultaneously rotated and pulled upward to remove them. The base of the puzzle is also a puzzle though all the pieces are the same so you can put them together however you like.

My toddler son loves these books about holidays. I try to get one for each approaching holiday. Illustrations are cute, too.

2.0 out of 5 stars More plastic than wood, 10 Jun 2014

This review is from: BRIO Coffee Set (Toy)
Bought this to avoid the raft of cheap, plastic tea sets. Very disappointed to see when it arrived that it's mostly plastic. I wouldn't have paid 16+ for it had I known. It's nicer than the all plastic sets but not worth the money I paid.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT WASHABLE - SON'S SHORTS RUINED, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've just washed a pair of my toddler's shorts twice and the paint didn't come out, even after using an oxi based stain pre-treater spray. Further, the instructions on the paints state you should wash the clothes in hot water (I did) but most clothes have care labels instructing that they not be washed at higher than 40 C temperature. The pots of paint themselves are fairly small but a little goes a long way and the colors are good. As paints they're fine but as *washable* paints they fail completely. I guess I'll have to strip him down to his diaper or dress him in cast away clothes when he paints. Definitely can't let him paint indoors so it'll have to be saved for warm days in the garden.

I also bought the Matchbox set to save a little bit of money and to compare. These are worth the extra 1.50, hands down. Better decorated and better made.


The High Street (Lift the Flap)
The High Street (Lift the Flap)
by Alice Melvin
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Too flimsy for a toddler, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely book with nice illustrations but it isn't a traditional lift the flap. Instead the pages unfold to reveal a double page illustration. Not sturdy enough for a two year old.
