    Our Thoughts On The Little Tikes Easy Store Large Slide

    At the end of last Summer, Bella and I spent a lovely morning in London at an event hosted by the wonderful people over at Little Tikes. We were super impressed with their new baby range. Following the event we were lucky enough to be sent this amazing easy store large slide in pink for Bella to put through its paces. As soon as she opened it, she insisted on having it set up in the dining room which is where it stayed for a good few weeks. I had planned to move it outside but sadly the British weather quickly took a turn for the worse shortly after, so we hadn’t been able to get outside to play with it very much over the winter.

    We recently had a few brighter days and Bella was so desperate to use her new pink slide properly out in the garden. The grass was still a bit too damp so we decided to set it up on the decking instead. Bella absolutely loves this slide and would go up and down it all day long if I let her.

    The slide is 5 foot long and suitable for children from 24 months up until 5 years old so I know that Bella will have years of fun with it yet. It feels super sturdy as it has quite a wide base so I don’t need to worry about it tipping over. Bella seems to find the steps nice and easy to climb too.

    My favourite feature is definitely the fact that it folds and then locks in place which makes for easy storage. During the winter months we can just fold the slide up and pop it in the garage without it taking up loads of room which I think is super handy, especially if you are pushed for space. As well as the vibrant pink which Bella adores, the slide is also available in primary colours and sunshine yellow which I think is my personal favourite.

    The only criticism I would make would be that it is quite a drop off the bottom of the slide. It took Bella some getting used to. It’s definitely something to bare in mind if using it on a hard surface!

    Overall we have been super impressed with the Easy Store Large Slide and I am confident that Bella will enjoy endless hours of fun with it, especially as the weather warms up!

    A Morning In London With Little Tikes

    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!
