Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Playset

Hatchimals were big news in December 2016 with parents tearing their hair out trying to get their hands on the latest must-have toy and since then the range has expanded to include the cute little range of collectables – Hatchimals CollEGGtibles.

Gotrovo Mealtime Treasure Hunt

If you are a parent you probably know too well the battles that can ensue at mealtimes as you try to get your little darlings to eat something other than their favourite foods, and if you are anything like me you’ve probably tried all the tricks – hiding vegetables in sauces, convincing them that that their favourite cartoon character loves broccoli – to no avail!

Luckily Gotrovo have developed a lovely dinner set that is both functional and fun, doubling up as a game that helps make mealtimes interesting and rewarding.
