I read toy catalogues in a different way from most people. When I get the Target Toy sale catalogue in my hot little hand, I run inside like any excited mother would, and open it. I by-pass the plastic dolls, big named brand toys and jump straight to the really good stuff in the middle – the outdoor and exploratory section.
Target has a great reputation for its outdoor items, I’d be the first to recommend a trampoline. Not only is it good to jump on (fancy that!) but we’ve used it in a few wonderful outdoor learning activities too. We’ve played our animal classification game on it and I’ve even let the kids go chalk mad drawing animal on it too! Trampolines are more versatile than you think.
My favourites in the catalogue are:
Wet/Dry Field Kit
This is by far my favourite gift for children who love wildlife and love to explore. It has a heap of goodies in this pack but it also has a laser bug vacuum. A laser bug vacuum! How cool is that?! Perfect for Miss Platypus, who’s taken to picking up spiders with her fingers. Not good! The Wet/Dry Field Kit will hopefully solve that problem!
We do forest bush walking and forest picnics but I’d love get bikes for the twins so that we can go for a forest bike ride soon too! If we get these ones I think we’ll stand out in the bush. Big and bright!
Can you imagine your child constructing their own 3D T-Rex dinosaur skeleton? My girls may be slightly too young for this but if you have an older child, I really think this would go down well on Christmas morning! I’m hoping they’ll be one in the catalogue in the next couple of years too, or perhaps I should get it and save it for then.
Disney Doc McStuffins doctors bag set
I had to highlight this doctor set. Remember, it doesn’t have to be used just as a doctor set but it can be very handy for vet play too!
Rock Painting book and kit
This one was hidden with some other craft books but just because it’s hiding doesn’t mean I wouldn’t have found it! I like to look closely as to not miss any good deals. I’ve been looking to paint on some rocks with the girls as a nature craft activity and this will make it so much easier. I’m really looking forward to seeing the kit at the shops.
Am I weird for jumping to my favourite section of the Target Toy Sale catalogue first? Do you read your catalogues from the middle or do you scour it from front to back or back to front?
The Target Toy Sale runs for three weeks from Wednesday the 26th June 2013 both in stores all over Australia and online.
This is a sponsored post and I have received a voucher from Target to write this post but as my disclosure page states, all opinions are my own and payment hasn’t influenced my voice. I do genuinely love Target and I hand-picked these toys from the catalogue as my favourites, and yes I’ll be buying a couple of them when the toy sale begins!
I’m so happy that Target are sharing some freebies with you too! I have one $50 Target gift voucher to giveaway. Yippee! I love giving you guys freebies. All you have to do is comment below and you’re in a draw. You can also add one more entry if you visit the Target Toy Sale Catalogue too. Easy? Easy!
