Well you don't need me to tell you what a completely bizarre few months it has been as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, we were all very unfamiliar with words such as Lockdown and Furlough but now it seems to be all we hear! While there is absolutely no doubt that the heroes of the hour are the beautiful souls of the NHS who have done the Nation proud I'm sure that there will be many parents who will agree that our little troops may also qualify for a chocolate medal 😊
I myself am the proud Father of a 3 year old little girl who like all other kids her age has had her routine thrown into chaos (along with mine!) but all in all I would say that she has taken it in her stride. I'm sure many of you will agree that the younger kids are very adaptable and so where we are finding it increasingly difficult to fill the days they seem to happily plod along with whatever is put in front of them.
I suppose being a part of the Bits & Bobbets family has helped me along as I can call on some of our kiddies personalised gifts & toys to help keep her amused but in all honesty it has only taken a few of these toys to keep her happy, the main ingredient is whether I take the time to join in with her 😊
My little girl is a Peppa Pig fanatic so the first obvious choice was our personalised Peppa Pig Skittles set which was first used as a distraction so I could get a little work done but she quickly lost interest but as soon as I got involved she couldn't get enough, even if I was getting a bit too competitive 😁 The same could be said of our personalised Dear Zoo skittles set
A recent new addition to our store had been the Tell The TIme personalised wall clock which I had decided to test out at home just prior to the lockdown, which due to the layout and the bright colours has also kept her interested in the lost art of looking at clocks!
The final distraction and probably the best so far has definitely been the baking (with her Mother not me!). I kitted her out in her own personalised apron but the real triumph was her own personalised baking kit complete with chopping board, spoon, spatula & rolling pin!
There is still probably some way to go with this pandemic but I for one am very proud with the way my little girl has handled it and I'm sure you all are to... Here's to the kids! 😍😍😍
In the meantime I'll do my best to keep adding the best personalised gifts and toys to our store just in case you need a little assistance now and again 😉
