Well I think this Very Hungry Caterpillar gift set would make a lovely alternative Easter gift; I bought it for Tamsin's daughter a couple of years ago as a birthday gift and can reliably inform you that it's LOVELY.
If you've been reading me on PlayPennies for a while then my views on the Very Hungry Caterpillar probably won't have escaped your attention: I think EVERY child in the land should be exposed to the greedy green guy from as early on in life as possible - he's a childhood icon and kids around the world LOVE him.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar gift set comes with a soft toy Very Hungry Caterpillar and a little hardback version of the original Very Hungry Caterpillar book; all the holes are still in the right places, he still eats watermelon and still munches on salami; hurrah!
Even more 'hurrah' is the current price Play are selling the Very Hungry Caterpillar gift set for - £5.49 rather than £10.99; cheaper than some of the bigger kid's Easter Eggs I've seen, will last a lot longer and is far more healthy too.
