August Toddler Favourites

by - 12:44

It's September already and the summer is nearly over! It really wasn't much of a summer this year as rain battered the United Kingdom. Every day I have woken up and looked out of my bedroom window and seen clouds followed by rain.  My August Monthly Favourites will reflect that. Gone are the usual outdoor favourites that appear on these types of posts at this time of year and in are books and other indoor toys.
So this month Jack has been loving a few things. Books, as usual, are top of the list.

First 100 Words and First 100 Numbers Books


This month I have that found that instead of a traditional storybook, Jack is enjoying books where he can point at different images. He is getting to the age where he is learning to recognise images and relate them to their names. I loved the First 100 Words and First 100 Numbers books. They are published by Piddybooks and cost £7.99 and £5.99 from Waterstones. The books themselves are large colourful board books that features 100 pictures to look at accompanied by essential first words and numbers to learn. I thought these books were fantastic as they contained different pages that related to items that Jack saw daily including bathtime, my day, animals and toys. The First 100 Words book is also a lift the flap book making it truly interactive.


Jack has a new favourite toy and it is called a Scuttlebug. The Scuttlebug is essentially a foot to floor ride on toy with a three wheeled design for stability. It is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and has already had hours of use in our house. Aimed at one to three year olds it comes in a variety of colours. We opted for the red and black design. This has really helped Jack with his balance and learning to steer. I love how it packs down flat. The item is very lightweight and when folded down can hook onto the pushchair for outdoor use. At £24.99 we are definitely going to get value for money with this product.
Wooden Fire Engine
I love wooden children's toys, there is something very nostalgic about them. They remind me of my childhood I suppose. I came across this Fire Engine in Tesco's for £5. Jack absolutely adores Fireman Sam and immediately recognised the Fire Engine. With a lift up ladder and spinning wheels,  this toy can easily fit into the changing bag and  comes everywhere with us.
I'd love to hear a few of your favourites this month! Feel free to comment below or talk to me on twitter.
