Our latest fascination…
With summer finally here, we are really excited about a new range of Usborne books.
Simply, the are bugs to spot, trees to spot, flowers and plants. Amazing information and illustration brings the garden and the outdoors to life and will get children involved in where they are.
At £2.99 each, these are a charming little present that the whole family will enjoy.
Our latest discoveries table
Really interesting models to build
Great logic and thinking games
Toys to stimulate the youngest children
Our amazing photicular books contain images that come to life when you move the books – always a favourite.
This month, we’ve combined them with another favourite – our delightful finger puppets.
During July, when you buy one of the photicular books, you can choose a finger puppet friend to go with it for free!
Come in and choose.
This month’s competition
We have a special summer competition this month!
Our fascinating 3D houses have been so popular, and here is a new one – an ice cream parlour. Full of great detail and delicious flavours to put together – this is a building project that might make you hungry!
All you need to do to win this is to send us an email to email@example.com telling us what your favourite flavour of ice cream is – we will pick an answer at the end of the month, and the winner will have their own ice cream station to build. Enjoy!
