Leapfrog Counting Candles Birthday Cake £10 @ Amazon
I love any kind of cake.
Lemon Drizzle, along with my ex-mother-in-law's Coffee and Walnut cake, are two firm family favourites but I'd also be happy to wager that this Leapfrog Counting Candles Birthday Cake would have been a hit with the kids when they were all younger.
The five candles light up one by one and your child(ren) can blow them out, just like on a real birthday cake.
They'll be able to sing along to a counting song, five songs about growing up or add birthday lyrics to an instrumental tune.
You can also listen to children's thoughts on the best things about birthdays - my youngest made me laugh back in July during his fifth birthday party, "MORE presents!!!!" was his phrase of the day and clearly the best thing about birthdays in, and I quote, "...the whole wide world EVER!"
The Leapfrog Counting Candles Birthday Cake also comes with a guide for parents and has received glowing reviews:
"Brought this for my little girls first Birthday, it has been a real winner. Great fun to sing along too and she enjoys pressing the buttons. Highly recommend"
"I purchased this item for my grandson's first birthday...he was delighted with it and it was a talking point of his party... Very good quality songs played are clear and the lights on the candles are bright and colourful ... an item that will last for many of his birthdays as you can choose to adapt it for a range of ages... Fantastic value I am very pleased with this discovery"
Happy Candle Counting!
