Chad Valley 2-in-1 Colour In Castle £4.99 @ Argos
With the school summer holidays looming, or already under way for some, cheap ways to keep the kids busy are on lots of shopping lists right now. This Chad Valley 2-in-1 Colour In Castle looks like it will provide hours of entertainment, and it's only £4.99.
It's a cardboard cut out castle, with lots of detailed drawings all ready to colour in. One side is more of a 'princess' castle, and the other is a 'forest fortress', so you can choose which side to decorate or just do both. Then it can be used as a little play house or mini den.
With it being cardboard it's not going to stand up to much rowdy playing, but for less than a fiver I'm more than willing to give it a go. I think it's going in the cupboard for rainy days and I think my kids will both get a lot of enjoyment out of this.
Stocks are widely available, both for the free reserve and collect, and for the home delivery service which adds another £3.95 to your order.
