Cancer Research UK is a charity very close to my heart - my grandfather died from bowel cancer, my great-aunt also died from bowel cancer and my father is a bowel cancer survivor; I don't intend to be the third generation in my family to be struck down by this horrendous disease.
Combine the fact that all profits from sales of this toy go to a very good cause, with the wooden and education factor, ALONG with the no need for batteries element and you've, pretty much, got my perfect toy.
The wooden alphabet and number snake is a colourful wooden snake puzzle with each piece numbered from 1 to 26 on one side and from A to Z on the other.
He's a fabulous way to introduce your child to the world of letters and numbers; I wish I had someone I could buy him for, but I rather think all my children are a little old for him now.
He measures 19 x 14 1.5cms, is suitable for youngsters aged three years and over and costs just £2.99.
