Moon Sand, never heard of the stuff, but Destruction Testa knew about it from his nursery and opened the box himself (slight damage ensued). You need to use the Candy Shop Box as part of the imaginative place to play sweet shops in so open it carefully or the ‘edges’ which are pink moulded plastic actually come [...]

The final creative toyology of the day! I’ve never managed to make one of these models so that it looked anything like the box. The plaster of Paris has always let me down with a strategically crappy air bubble. So this is a challenge. Luckily I have two very creative helpers, and the shaker maker [...]

The Galt cute cupcakes are tiny! Very tiny indeed, I am just making one, to demonstrate the kit, and so far after the easy bit of mixing up the plaster of paris I have noticed bubbles. There are bubbles in the plaster even though I mixed it smoothly and so I don’t think my cakes [...]

Today we are testing out the Tonka toy that arrived in our box last week. It has been set up in the front room since TRU ThursDay! And it has had a great deal of use, because I’ve packed up the Chuggington very cunningly. Now destruction Testa himself is not feeling so well, so the task has fallen [...]

WHY THIS IS A SIMPLY GREAT TRAIN SET : This is a much better train set for Destruction Testa. He actually plays with it rather than watching it go round and then dismantling the track. In fact today I’m going to buy some more sections of Chuggington interactive world, I must admit that this is [...]

A TRAIN SET! before we started the TRU Toyologist programme this is what I wanted to get Destruction Testa for Christmas 2010. He has a train set at his Nana’s house, and spends hours and hours belly down on the carpet pulling it apart and getting grandad to put it back together for him. And [...]

The second of our Leapfrog Learning Toy Reviews: This is again an amazing piece of kit for the price. Especially with the online link that tells you how your child is making progress along the leapfrog ‘learning pathway.’ having looked into more key Stage 3 (not my specialism but I was tipped off by a colleague [...]

DUPLO is amazing! I had completely forgotten about this product, maybe the destruction testa has just got old enough for it … but I had a fantastic time building the zoo and we have literally spent an hour a day this week moving animals around it. And smashing up their enclosures to rebuild them. All along in [...]
