    Why buy plastic? thought your a nation of save the earth?

    I can't believe i didn't get more people saying they buy wooden toys, you all should be ashamed, your not teaching your children value nor the future. :cry:

    Not that it helps now, but if you're ever up in Northumberland, there's a delightful little Wooden Toy shop in Belford :)

    There's one near southport we have used, it's seeing the childrens face light up what made us buy.

    toysr u, in boxes, most kids like to touch stuff. try before you buy, my grandchildren now get wood, full kitchen, pans, food, safe paint, last forever, can be passed on, and still have a resale value(i hope) :LOL:

    Don't buy plastic please. your grandchildren will thank you in the future, for the sake of their children.

    And when the world shuts down, you will have loads of wood to burn to cook on. :LOL:

    Summer is coming, so something for the outdoors might be best. A trampoline, Swing, swing and slide set, a trike or a scooter should be popular with an active child.

    I know a number of health care workers from nurses to doctor. Every single one of them has banned Trampolines from their garden and/or their children from using one! Trampolines can be good fun but I've asked all of those friends above why they've banned Trampolines and they've all told me, they have all seen a huge increase in the number of children suffering serious and sometimes life threatening injuries as a result of using a Trampoline.
     

  14. Good god whatever next? we'll ban kids from drinking and smoking!!!

    Who's to say that using wood is saving the planet, Tell Sting and his Missus that, they're always campaigning against deforestation.

    What about re-cycled plastic, or steel; Now Steel is recyclable, they could play with them and then take them straight to the scrap yard and see the first steps of recycling in action at first hand.

    Sod that excitement and innocence of youth, let's just teach them about saving the planet, before they even know they're destroying it by having fun !!

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
