Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Review: Flexi Robots from Hawkins Bazaar

You may have noticed a new badge on my sidebar recently. Well I have become an “Official Hawkins Bazaar Blogger” which is really exciting for me. They have lots of great products in-store and online, and a lot of them are things you won’t find anywhere else. A great selling point for me. My first post for Hawkins Bazaar is a review of their Flexi Robots, who you may recognise from last years TV ads.

Available in six colours – pot luck which you get if ordered online however – these cute little wooden robots are perfect for small toddler hands. A simple design of wood and elastic, these figures can be moved into a range of positions by pushing their head, arms and legs into gaps in the wood. So simple, but so effective, these little figures kept my Little Man entertained for ages. At 12 cm tall they are a great compact toy. We received three from Hawkins Bazaar, and gave him one to play with. The other two are going to be put in the car for our journey to West Wales next week for our holiday amongst a selection of other travel toys and games. They are a great size to pop into your bag to keep kids amused when out and about, and they can even slip them into their own pockets or bags to carry themselves. I was really impressed with them, especially how they kept Little Man’s attention, but also their quality. A great pocket money wooden toy.

You can find Flexi Robots, Flexi Animals and the complete Hawkins Bazaar range online and at stores nationwide.
