Leapfrog Shapes And Sharing Picnic Basket £14.73 @ Amazon
This LeapFrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket comes with 14 pieces and is suitable for little ones aged six months or older; together you'll be able to explore shapes, colours and manners - a toy that addresses manners, now that's something new!
There are 30 audio responses, which are in a British voice rather than an American one, and there's a wonderful, WONDERFUL volume control feature on it too. It's bright, colourful and cheery and I have to say, the forks look rather cute!
I'm not usually a fan of plastic toys (if you're a regular PlayPennies reader you'll know this already), and I'm definitely not a fan of plastic toys that speak, sing, play tunes or have flashing lights - I can't help it, I'm a good old-fashioned traditional wooden toy girl.
BUT, I can go with plastic, talking and singing toys when they're made by LeapFrog - their educational element, fun factor and quality overrides my inner wooden toy snob!
