Breaking Screen Time With Clementoni Toys

Im back with some fab Clementoni toys that are guaranteed to get your kids away from their beloved tablets and get playing!

First up is the Tumbling Car
aimed at 2-4 yr olds,
Simple controls,
Car can do somersaults,
 It is ideal for learning numbers, space perception and for stimulating recognition of the relationship between cause and effect.
You can buy it from amazon for £18.15.

Rupert absolutely loved the tumbling car, I haven't seen him so taken with a toy in a long while!
He found the controls easy to use and loved watching the car take tumbles.
It was great watching him figure things out, such as when he drove the car into a wall, he had to press the other button to make the car move away.

A really great toy and I know it will be played with endlessly in the mini beast household!

Next up is an Interactive Quiz Puzzle....
I didn't even know you could get interactive puzzles, so imagine my excitement when I opened up the box.

I had to explain it to the twins, they were nearly as impressed as I was.
Oscar though did love the magic pen you use to answer the questions.
The boys all love Blaze and the Monster Machines, so were keen to get the puzzle out.

The boys took no time building it, we all worked together and even Rupert placed a few pieces in the correct spots.

Puzzles are a great way of having fun with out a screen being involved.
Doing a puzzle in a team or on your own is just as enjoyable.
The twins love sitting at the table and cracking on with a puzzle and you can see how proud they are of themselves once they've finished one.

Having an added bonus of the puzzle being interactive was great, they spent ages trying to figure out the right answers to the questions and then they quizzed each other.
Most nights before dinner they know would rather get the puzzle out than sit and watch the telly.

You can get the puzzle from amazon for £15.99

Half Term Boredom Busters With Clementoni Toys

It only feels like yesterday that the long 6/7 weeks of the summer holidays were over and the kids were finally going back to school and my sanity was about to return.

Now October Half Term is just around the corner and I have only just found out that the boys are off for TWO WEEKS!!!!
Seriously when did that become a thing?

October isn't known for its beautiful weather so I thought I would share a couple of toys that could prevent the kiddies becoming bored.

First ones are for the mini people;

Football mad kids?
Mine are and this has gone down a treat, I've even spotted Noah practising his goal shooting.

Ru was very taken with this and the moment he saw it came with a ball it turned into his new favourite thing.
He's got a great kick on him, but still needs a bit of practise getting it into the goal, the twins have been helping him, by showing him how they do it
This is one of the only toys they have that they actually share nicely!

Some of the key features of the World Cup Winner are;

  • An educational speaking toy that teaches the first letters, numbers from 1 to 5, shapes and colours, how to count and lots of new words,
  • Music mode has lots of amusing songs as well as fun sounds and light effect.
  • Teaches English and Spanish.

Another one for the Little people is the Nursery Rhyme Farm Pad which is suitable from 24 months.

Ru isn't a big talker but he loves singing along to nursery rhymes.
He does usually play them on the iPad but with this farm pad its much more interactive and he loves that he can press the different animals and hear the different sounds they make.
He never really used to be able to tell you what animal belonged to what noise but he's slowly getting there and with the Farm Pad I can see that happening.
This keeps him quite for a good while, this is perfect for calming down time.

Now onto those bigger children who are more harder to please!
If Noah could play on his PlayStation all day every day he would, and he really gets annoyed when I tell him he has to do other things or his brain will rot!
When presenting him with other things to do, normally he will grunt at me and go off in a huff.
Unless its something really cool, just like the Mechanic Laboratory .
As soon as he saw this his face lit up!

As much as Noah pretends he hates making things and being creative, he actually really enjoys it once he gets stuck in.

He is following the instructions stage by stage, and is looking forward to the end result!
Keep an eye on my Instagram to see the end result!

This Mechanic Laboratory will keep him busy all half term, as you can make more than 50 buildings of increasing complexity, you can build helicopters, motorized cranes, cars with electric motors.
