Bigjigs Melody & Lucy Dolls: A Review

Last week, Daisy, Evie and I were given our first mission as official Bigjigs Play Patrol Agents. We were sent two beautiful little rag dolls and asked to take them out on an adventure!

I'm a huge, huge, huuuuuge fan of traditional toys. There's something just so timeless about wooden play food or building blocks, or well made dressing up clothes or, indeed, a lovely rag doll. If looked after well they never age and children will always want to play with them. My girls still love playing with some of my old childhood toys when they visit Granny and Grandad and I absolutely adore it. 

In all honesty, I love any toys that inspire creative role play as I think this is one of the most important parts of playtime for pre-schoolers.

These lovely Bigjigs dolls come in three different heights and there are no less than thirty three different characters to choose from. They are soft bodied, with lovely wool hair and removable old-fashioned clothes - and they are suitable for children aged twelve months plus so would make a lovely first birthday present, in my opinion.

Anyway, back to our adventure! I asked Daisy where she'd like to take her doll (who has been named Strawberry - and Evie's is Marmite (don't ask)) and she said she'd like to take her to nursery. That sounded like a good idea to me, so on Tuesday this week off Strawberry went for a day at school.

Of course I wasn't on hand to take photos of her getting up to all sorts of exciting things during the course of the day but Daisy and her teachers did fill me in at home time.

She had helped Daisy paint a picture in the morning, and then had been introduced to the class at news time. Because it was such a lovely day they'd taken their lunch boxes out into the garden for a picnic - and the afternoon was spent reading, having a go on the computer and playing in the home corner. Lots and lots of fun.

In the meantime, poor Marmite had drawn the short straw really as she had to stay at home and do housework with me and Evie ;) We did lots of washing and swept and mopped the floors and then she and E had a little afternoon nap before it was time to do the school run!

Once everybody was reunited at the end of the day we had a fairy cakes in the garden which was a real treat.

Daisy and Evie both absolutely love their dolls and they've well and truly become part of the family over the past week. If you'd like to buy one, they range in price from £9.99 to £15.49 and are available online here.xoxo

DISCLAIMER: We are official Play Patrol Agents and Daisy and Evie were sent these dolls in exchange for this honest review.
