    Default Tweezers

    I want to get some colourful tweezers and small things to sort. I have seen dinosaurs, pets and vehicles and tweezers on Amazon.

    Would this be the best/cheapest place to get these things?

    I got mine from Amazon - tweezers, coloured bowls and a big tub of animals.

    They did work out about the cheapest as they were free delivery.

    I have strawberry hullers that I got from amazon or ebay that I use for LO instead of tweezers. I found the big plastic tweezers were too bulky for little hands.

    we sort all sorts of things ... currently acorns/acorn cups and assorted 'helicopter' seeds.

    I got some of the 3 bears sorting set, as good with different sizes & colours. I bought them from this online shop. ( and then discovered they actually have a shop about 20mins drive from me! )

    I get most if my resources from amazon as I find their service fast reliable and usually cheaper than most places. I've got some large coloured tweezers from there for a few pounds, they were a tender in the supermarket near me!
    Also they're great for Melissa and Doug resources, which can be massively expensive in shops xx

    I get them on amazon but purely cos DH works for one of their subsidiary company's so we get staff discount, I love amazon! When they brought out his company and we got discount I was a very happy lady!

    If you buy a book as well or spend over £10 delivery is free. I tend to put bits in my basket and buy when it reaches over £10.

    Or it might be worth looking at amazon prime. Expensive upfront but we definitely save over the course of a year.
