Does anyone know where I can find a traditional "piggy bank" - high street rather than mail order preferably. I'd like to get one for DS for Christmas so that as he starts to understand about money we can introduce the idea of saving. But I can't find one anywhere ....
There's a lovely online one here , 6 items down (the one on the left of the picture).
High street wise, the non-chain store type shops are probably your best bet or maybe a shop that sells pine-furniture-and-curios, you know the sort. I've bought one from a craft shop selling "craft fair" type things before.
Does anybody know where I can find a beachball (the blow-up plastic kind) in London? I know if I went to a seaside town I'd find one in an instant but in SW London seems a little harder to do. DS loves them and has just learnt to throw a ball around, and the beachball is nice and light.
My DS has a blow-up basketball post and ball. The ball is just like a beach ball but a bit smaller and we use it for all sorts of things - throwing, kicking etc. I think you might be able to get this kind of things from ELC, Toys R Us etc.
