my nearly 3 yr old boy mindee currently loves duplo blocks/vehicles & animals, wooden train set, puzzles & games, stories and then retelling them with puppets/figures etc.

my 2 3/4yr old girl mindees love the dolls/buggies etc, tea set & play food ( can only be played with IF first you have put on ALL the jewellery in the dressing up box ;) ) and painting.

all love blowing bubbles and cuddling the cat!

I have a little boy who will be 3 at the weekend and all he ever wants to play with is the Tidlo kitchen, cars and in the playhouse in the garden. When we got the new kitchen he saw it and said "Wow, thats amazing"!! SO cute! :D
