Toys Of The Week

The Amazing Flower Kit, Happy Puzzles

This fabulous puzzle craft kit will keep your children thoroughly entertained for hours! The set contains everything they will need to create a stunning bouquet of 48 multi-coloured flowers (there are eight different kinds of flowers!). There’s no need for glue or even scissors! It all just pops apart and goes creatively together! Please note that the bucket in the image is NOT included.

Waxidoodles, Happy Puzzles

WaxiDoodles are modelling sticks coated with a wax formula so that they stick to almost any surface (without leaving permanent marks behind) and to each other, with just fingertip pressure, making them great for 3D activities and model building. A hugely creative activity that can help children understand and feel letter and shape formation. Brilliant as a learning tool, the colours don’t blend and can be used repeatedly! The set contains 150 WaxiDoodles, a durable playing board, and an activity booklet.

The Amazing Clock Kit, Happy Puzzles

Both sides of the wind-up clock are transparent, meaning that the workings of the clock are completely visible. This brilliant discovery kit is designed to give children aged 5 to 15 an understanding of how a clock works. Children will be able to see why the different cogs and springs rotate and how they cause the pendulum to swing, turn the hands of the clock and make the bell chime too! Once fully wound, the Clock Kit should run for around 6 hours.

Latest Books

The Truth About Yeticorns, Rachel Morrisroe

Bea often tells little fibs when something goes wrong. Fairy-cats wiped mud all over the floor, wild octoponies flooded the bathroom… and lately, a humongous Yeticorn has been charging around, gobbling up her sister Edie’s sweets and sneezing confetti everywhere!

But one day, Bea wakes to find that a Yeticorn REALLY has come to stay – and his whippy, trippy tail causes all sorts of problems that she gets the blame for!

Can Bea find the courage to stop fibbing and finally tell the truth?

Five Minute Mum: Starting School, Daisy Upton

Is your little one starting school soon? Oh, goody! You’ve come to the right place.

Getting your child ready to start school can feel overwhelming, can’t it? It’s a big step for both of you.

Bestselling author and social media superstar, Daisy Upton, is here to help and has finally written a book for children! Daisy has two children in primary school and used to be a teaching assistant, so she knows her stuff.

Share this gentle, funny guide with your child to support them – and you! – with uniforms, meeting their first teacher, getting to school on the first day, making new friends, finding their way around, having fun at playtime, asking for help, packing their bag, learning about letters and numbers, going to assemblies, getting changed for PE, and much more.

How to Grow a Dragon, Rachel Morrisroe

A story that celebrates problem-solving, kindness and resourcefulness.

An unexpected delivery of dragodil seeds provides the perfect chance for Sarah and Mr Pottifer to grow helpful dragon pets for their customers – or does it? It turns out that these fiery dragons are not very well-behaved at all… and everything soon spirals into smoke-filled, out-of-control DRAGON CHAOS!

Can Sarah’s quick thinking and green fingers save the day?
