***This is a sponsored post for Big W. All opinions are mine and all jumping and basketball antics are as crazy as they look.***
While announcing the Big W Toy Spectacular Sale and the awesome $100 Big W voucher giveaway last week, I also mentioned the gaffs we’ve made as (still fairly) newish parents. Especially when it came to toy purchases.
Happy to report that I think we finally got it right!
With the aid of the twinlets – our little toy experts – we clicked on the Big W website to make some “educated” and “well-researched” choices.
Let’s not forget, having twins usually means having to buy two of everything. Thus began our search in finding activity equipment that they could happily enjoy together.
Out of pure obligation (and fear of never been forgiven) we bought the Octonauts obsessed boys a Captain Barncale’s Gup A vehicle each.
Considering all the cold, miserable weather and lack of outdoor opportunity, we also chose the Little Tikes TotSport Basketball set…Behold, my future Harlem Globetrotters!
Action Junior Jumper Mini trampoline…Boing, boing, boing!
and the Tinkers Deluxe Checkout Supermarket which turned out to be the best choice EVER!
Finally, we found a toy that we don’t have to buy 2 of yet they’ve been playing beautifully together, taking turns with the trolley and the cash register. Miracles!
Everything was bought on the Monday morning and just 24 hours later, the delivery man came to drop off our goodies.
How’s that for painless and toddler tantrum free shopping?
Don’t forget, last day to enter my Big W voucher giveaway! Might save you tantrums and tears and claim back your sanity!
