In My Own Words:
I am a music graduate from the University of Southampton. I work in the entertainment industry as a singer, songwriter and music producer. I am particularly fond of commercial music. I hope my reviews can aid you in making a quality purchase.

Interests
Music, running and coffee take up most of my time. Not usually at the same time though. I think 'Glee' is kind of brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Traditional esque, 17 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very cute toy with more of a traditional feel to it rather than being blasted in colours and cartoon characters.

We actually let my 10 month old niece play with this even though it is recommended for slightly older. She is not quite advanced enough to realise the whole point is to put the corresponding blocks through the holes, yet still loves banging the blocks until one of them goes through the hole.

They do an exercise in her music class with wooden blocks and I think this reminds her of that and she tries to recreate it.

All in all I found this an adorable gift but I must admit I got it with the intention of my mum. She already knows basic knitting and this has been a perfect fun activity for her to do instead of the usual nights in front of the tv with coronation street and eastenders.

I personally felt it seemed quite difficult for a child to grasp and would definitely recommend for older children approaching comprehensive school. Such a great alternative to a society now geared towards iPad games rather than real activities.
Galt Toys Playmat (Farm / Large) by Galt America
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I thought this mat was adorable. It's really colourful and a generous size in relation to a small baby.

It has been perfect to put all the baby's toys on so she can sit there comfortably and play with everything in one place. There are a few different textures the baby picked up on quickly also. The sheep character is fleecy to touch and the duck has a flap for its beak that squeaks. She hasn't really noticed the others just yet.

The only con is that if we didn't place the mat on our rug for extra padding it would be rather uncomfortable to sit on.
