Chad Valley Washing Machine £9.99 @ Argos
Don’t hunt for it, Argos it! Sorry, couldn’t resist that. Right, so here we have an adorable toy washing machine that comes with a free box of pretend washing powder, for only £9.99 at Argos. Originally retailing for £12.99, you are making a quiet little saving of £3.
The washing machine comes with realistic lights and sounds and you can pull out the drawer to add your pretend washing powder. You can choose a spin cycle, listen as the washing machine fills with water and watch the drum rotate. It demands four AA batteries that are not included and is ideal for kids over the age of three.
Now, while this is a lovely deal and all, I am not a fan! I know, I know, there are many kids that would love this toy, but I can’t help feeling that doing the laundry should be a special hell reserved for adulthood and avoided as a kid.
They’ll soon (sniff) be all grown up and complaining about their loads of laundry and the tedium of housework so why play at it when you don’t have to? I may be the only one who feels this way, though!
