As a mother of an over-excitable three year-old, I am constantly on the look out for toys/activities that would make a meal in a restaurant somehow more agreeable and peaceful. Obviously not while we are having our meal, but the crucial bit is when waiting for the meal to be served and after the said meal has been consumed.
She tends to be either (though of course it also depends on whether she’s tired or not)
c.) Hyper, walking/running around.
d.) If it’s your unlucky day, all of the above.
I don’t know about you, though I have a feeling that if you do have a young child like my little T, when going out, chances are you probably pack your bag with the following items too:
- A colouring book/sketch pad.
- Crayons/felt-tip pens.
- Favourite toys
- Tablet or any other gadget that will at least bid you a bit of peace and quiet, especially the other diners.
To celebrate Peppa Pig’s 10th Anniversary Giromax has come out with Mini Clay Buddies the little ones can have fun playing with and collecting the different characters of the much-loved cartoon Peppa Pig.
These clay buddies are perfect and small enough to take them with you when out for a meal and more importantly, they will keep the little ones occupied and the parents stress free when out in public.
They come in small packs with clay, cardboard cut-outs of the characters face, hands, feet and tails:
Perfect for those little hands.
She absolutely enjoyed every minute of it and was so still and quiet!
Imagine if you’re in a restaurant, quietly waiting for your meal among other diners and your little one starts with the whinges, all you need to do is whip-out your mini clay buddies and they’ll happily sit down and create their favourite Peppa Pig characters.
I was hoping to save some for when we go out but she ended up doing all four of them! She was actually asking for more, good thing the parcel came with some kiddie magazines too. She happily settled down and quietly looked at the pages and put the respective stickers on the right page.
So if you’re the type who has regular meals out with your little ones, the clay buddies will be a great additional to your never-ending-list of things-to-bring-when-out-for-a-meal and this will hopefully ensure that you will manage to enjoy your meal sans a melt-down.
