Pat-a-cake Play Kitchen

Featured in IndyBest’s top toy kitchens for 2019, this pretty, wooden play kitchen offers plenty to do but doesn’t have a massive footprint. It’s easy to keep it in your own kitchen, or you can move it around the house or even outside on sunny afternoons.

It’s made from sturdy, painted wood and includes a hob with clicking dials, wooden salt & pepper pots, 3 wooden utensils, a shiny removable sink with turning hot & cold taps, and a chalkboard on the side.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

This wonderful little play set is not only easy to build, but it looks amazing in any room or house. Hours of fun can be had with this from drawing on its chalkboard side, to imagery play in it’s very own sink and oven. The dials make ‘click’ noises and it even comes with its very own utensils. We think this is great value for money – plus buy now and save!

Five-A-Day Wooden Fruit Box

There’s lots of fun to be had with this wooden toy fruit box – and what a brilliant way to learn about your ‘five a day’! Set includes two bananas, two cherries, one orange, one pear, two apples, three strawberries and a wooden crate.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

This set goes perfectly with other GLTC food play sets. You can collect them all. Our toy tester Leo spent hours emptying the create that comes with it and filling it back up again.

Cutting Veg Set

This lovely wooden toy encourages pretend play and helps develop fine motor skills – all that and it introduces the concept of a healthy diet too. Slice up the toy vegetables with the little wooden knife; you can stick them back together thanks to the Velcro patches on each slice.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

Like the set above this one goes a step further, the vegetables come in two pieces which velcro back together, meaning your little ones can really pretend play by cutting those veggies in half!

Large Classic Toy Box Seat, Bright White

We love toy boxes because they’re easy to move around and can double up as an extra seat (you can take your pick from our lovely cushion designs, sold separately). This toy box is super roomy so there’s plenty of space for storing toys of all sizes.

It’s very sturdy, with a handsome tongue and groove finish, plus it’s safe and easy for children to use, thanks to the safety hinge on the lid.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

A large and superb quality toy chest. Easy to put together and solid and sturdy. Can hold many toys and is a great looking piece of furniture. It can also double up as a seat, or neat hiding place!

Toy Box Cushion, Grey Stardust

The removable cover is machine washable and made from 100% cotton.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

The finishing touch to one of the above toy chest. Easy to clean and its neutral design works well with most colour schemes. Further stardust accessories can also be purchased.

Children’s Step Stool

More than a simple step stool, this clever little product offers children a helping hand to choose books from shelves, to help parents prepare meals and snacks at the kitchen counter, to reach taps to clean teeth without assistance, and even to climb on taller beds. It’s a first step to becoming a touch more independent.

This step stool is made from sturdy MDF and painted Bright White and Grey and, like all of our products, has been rigorously tested for use by children.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

So easy to build and much more sturdy than expected. A great way to train your little one on stairs, a cute seat or a very handy way to reach high places for mum!

Felt Garland, Woodland Animals

This lovely bedroom or nursery bunting adds cosy sweetness to bedrooms and it’s simple to put up thanks to a hanging loop at each end.QUALITY

It’s beautifully made, featuring three felt bears, two felt foxes, and six pretty felt trees. For decorative use only; to avoid injury from entanglement we strongly recommend it’s kept out of your child’s reach.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

Adorable throughout any season, we love these little felt creations. Use in many ways to brighten and decorate your little ones room.

Rope Storage Basket, Tassels

This stunning storage basket holds its shape well and is really robust, but being made from soft cotton rope it’s not at all scratchy on little hands.

BOUNCE VERDICT:

Another simple but gorgeous way to store toy, blankets and other bits you want to hide away! The tassel one is our favourite!
