I bought I really useful looking broom, brush and dustpan set from Smyths yesterday, it is an utterly un-gendered German brand whose name I forget. The whole thing was a fiver, and as I said to dd, means she won't have to do her sweeping with a pastry brush anymore.
DS1 (18m) is just beginning to get into the pretend play phase & loves feeling like he's helping around the house. He helped peel a carrot the other day & the look of joy on his face was priceless! I'm keen to get him some toys that really do things - hoovers that pick up little bits, that sort of thing. Any recommendations?
I'm also looking for a simple tea set that isn't hideously pink & battery operated! I'm perfectly happy for it to have some pink or be flowery, I just have an aversion to bright pink!
