their wooden toys, they have foldable (when not in use) fabric boxes made to look like trasure chests with locks which I use for dressing up box and book box.

their baby sets (bib, bowl, cup and spoon) and their cheap packs of face flannels!

I know you must have been and come back, what did you buy?

Anyone who is going, i went last week and they had hand puppets reduced to £1.99, so i had to buy one of each!!:laughing:

They had some good offers on!!! :)

I had gone before anyone other than Sarah had posted. We went to get an add on shelf for our unit as I've filled the space we had so need to extend it higher.

I got DS a little stool. I bought the NEXT Lego table from a friend the other day but it has two chairs and I have three children of my own.

I got a wardrobe storage thing for my collection of scarves. :blush: I got a step for reaching the loo/sink and a potty for DD.

I am in love with the toy kitchen, I think DD might get that for her Birthday in August. Our ELC toy kitchen is very popular but the Ikea one is so much nicer looking to put in my dining room.
