A couple of weeks back Bella and I were invited to spend the morning in London with the lovely people from Little Tikes to celebrate the launch of their newborn product range with a baby shower themed brunch. We were up and out the house super early and on the commuter train by 7.15am! We had arranged to meet Emily, Fran and their lovely kiddos on route so by the time we arrived we were a party of eight!
The event was super fun, the venue itself was gorgeous and it was packed with huge colourful balloons, an amazing brunch spread and more toys then you could shake a stick at. The kids all loved getting stuck in with the toys from the new ranges and definitely put them through their paces over the few hours that we were there. Whilst Bella played I enjoyed listening to a really interesting talk from the lovely Emma Kenny all about a recent survey on the highs and lows of parenting that Little Tikes had carried out.
Whenever I think of Little Tikes as a brand I always think of their famous red and yellow Cozy Coupe car! Bella received one for her second birthday and absolutely LOVES it. It’s one of those toys that I know she will continue to play with until she physically can no longer fit in it! She’s forever cruising round the garden in it or filling it with all her ‘shopping’. There was even an adult sized one at the event which the girls all adored! Apart from all the garden toys, I had never realised what a huge range of other toys that Little Tikes did and with the addition of their newborn range there really is something for everyone now.
After a fantastic few hours with Little Tikes we headed off in search of some lunch and ended up giving the kids a little picnic by the fountain in Trafalgar Square as it was such a lovely sunny day! I headed home in the afternoon with an a very tired toddler in tow who ended up having a little nap on my lap on the train home. Overall we had a wonderful day in the big smoke!
