To celebrate Chad Valley’s #100daysofplay campain running on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, More Than Mummies was sent some goodies from one of Chad Valleys latest toy ranges, the Designa Boutique to review.
This new range of toys features different boutique shops, a Café, a Pet Shop and a Fashion Boutique, as well as dolls and accessories to complement the boutique shops and build a new world of imaginative play.
The boutiques come packaged in a pretty pink gift box, which was a lovely added extra and great if you are considering this toy as a gift. My niece (aged 6) and son (aged 4) ‘helped’ me with the review and when they saw the pink box they were so excited and thought it was really special, they couldn’t wait to find out what was inside!
The product we received was the Design a Boutique Pet shop and two accessory packs one with a dog, basket, blanket, bag and bone and the other with a cat, blanket, bowl, bag and pet carrier. It made a nice change that the shop was fully assembled and there was nothing I needed to build before they could start playing!
The children loved the shop and thought the little cat and dog were adorable, we didn’t have any of the Chad Valley dolls but they were happy to play pet shop and found some of their other toys to be customers and extra pets. At one point we even had a wind up frog and rubber snake for sale in the pet shop!
The boutique shop comes with a counter and a till, 2 pet cages and 3 cardboard pet carriers. I was quite impressed with how much the children enjoyed playing with the pet shop and it was lovely to hear them using their imagination and playing together.
The Chad Valley Designa Boutique Range is available at Argos and prices start from £4.99 for the accessories and £24.99 for the Boutiques Buildings.
The#100daysofplay campaign is aimed at giving mums and dads’ inspiration and ideas to stop the kids getting bored. And you can find these ideas on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by searching for the hashtag. Not all of the ideas and suggestions include Chad Valley toys, the hashtag is simply a way to provide some imaginative play ideas for parents over the weekends and holidays, if you have some ideas you can also get involved!
