Description: These 10 hand puppets depict a variety of occupations and cultures. They are ideal for encouraging awareness and increasing knowledge of the different occupations and cultures. Not only are these an excellent tool for topical discussion, they are great for small hands too, as they are made from soft, felt material.


Score: 94.2%


What the testers said: “The puppets were great for role-play and in puppet theatres. The children were able to use them effectively, despite being slightly too big for their hands, due to


the fabric used. The puppets stimulated


discussions about occupations and what the children would like to do as a job. As well as for playing purposes, they were very useful as a teaching tool and visual aid. The bag meant that they were easy to store away.”


Description: Mould together your flour, butter and eggs, then mix your ingredients in the working cake mixer, before pouring into cake or cookie moulds, and decorating. The set includes a food mixer, moulds, measuring spoons, two plates, a cake knife, a themed sand box for play and storage, and three colours of Moon Sand™.

What the testers said: “A really fun product, with a bright and attractive design. Great for creative role-play, the children enjoyed pretending to be bakers. The product can be used individually, or in group play. It is non- messy and easy to clean, and the case is useful.”

Prehistoric Play Centre and Accessories


Supplier: NES Arnold Tel: 0845 120 4525 Web: www.nesarnold.co.uk Price: £229.95 Age range: 2 years +


Description: The Prehistoric Play Centre is a 28-piece, small world play centre, that has been beautifully crafted from wood. The set includes cave people figures, dinosaurs and their babies, plus trees and plants for scenery. Also included is a child- sized table and benches to allow children to interact and role-play with the resource.


Score: 92.7%


What the testers said: “An excellent resource. Children were all very eager to play, and being able to sit round the table made it easy for up to eight children to access it. It also meant smaller pieces were not lost, as they stayed in the same place. The table had a handy storage bag in the centre. The game stimulated a lot of conversation about volcanos and landscapes, such as the desert, so increased children’s knowledge. A great small world resource, which met many of the early learning goals across all six areas. The information cards attached to the dinosaurs were very interesting.”
