Learning Through Play with Chad Valley plus Giveaway


I’ve really loved the Chad Valley toys that we have been sent being part of the play panel.  The main reason being, that in each bundle has been something that’s reminded me of my childhood.

We were sent some of the new selection from the 2018 range and there are some absolutely fantastic items included; toys that reignite my love of play and allow me to reminisce and enjoy time with my children.

Included in the most recent play package was the amazing 6 in 1 Multi Games Table, a 100 Piece Styling Dolls Head and the Be U Jewellery Bead Tree Set.
I absolutely love all of them but I wanted to focus on the styling head as it reminded me so much of my Girl’s World from back in the 80s.  That was without a doubt one of my favourite Christmas presents, I even remember looking for it and circling it in the Argos catalogue.


As I have a shorter hairstyle, my daughter doesn’t really get to play with my hair, so I love that she can sit and play with this and brush it as much as she likes.

It comes with plenty of accessories for clipping hair, tying up hair, and simply making the doll’s hair look pretty. The clips and accessories are bright and colourful and can easily be used in my daughter’s hair too.




It comes with a little hairdryer, which sadly is for effect only, but makes a convincing sound.  This is probably the one thing I would change as I think this would really add to the effect, and since it comes with a little bottle for water to help style then it actually blowing out air would make it feel like you were styling the hair.


We have enjoyed playing with all of the toys we were sent, the bead station has been great and allowed me and my daughter to spend some time together making bracelets.

The 6 in 1 Multi Games Table is an immense piece of kit and we haven’t managed to play all of the games yet, but I can see this being the perfect outdoor game for the summer months, especially for parties. It took me a while to put it together but it was well worth it.

To celebrate the new range of Chad Valley toys I have £75 worth of Argos vouchers to giveaway, simply enter via the Rafflecopter form below. (T&Cs apply)
