Score: 97.0%


What the testers said: “Excellent software covering all areas of the EYFS clearly and easily. A very visual experience with lots of colours and sounds. Children were able to use the program independently; they had a lot of fun laughing at the characters but also learned a lot at the same time. The children especially enjoyed printing off pictures and taking them home. They are good value for money but may be expensive for individual carers or low-income childminders. Overall, an innovative product with fantastic learning opportunities.”

Description: A fantastic musical instrument set that combines four different instruments; a xylophone, pair of maracas, accordion and a drum that splits into two separate drums that make different sounds. Ideal for engaging young children in making their own music.


Score: 96.5%


What the testers said: “Brilliant! This set is unique and totally original and is still retailing at only £43.16,


making it affordable. We have already recommended this product as a “must have” to other colleges in different settings. The musical set is visually pleasing, encouraging the children to explore the kit further. Each instrument has a hidden extra feature, which adds to the excitement of the toy, such as the drum separating in two. This product provides a sensory and social experience for both children and adults as they make some wonderful sounds.”

What the testers said: “Excellent resource! Really useful to introduce children to


different jobs and experiences, as it can be difficult to take children on visits to meet people first-hand. A great resource for introducing role-play; the dressing up outfits were good quality. The digital handbook is very useful, with lots of curriculum links. The children really enjoyed using the “young writers” printables. Having the documentaries produced in sections worked well, as we could focus on different aspects of jobs.”
