Let your child put on a real show to entertain friends and family with a puppet theatre. From cute hand puppets to complete theatre sets with stages and backdrops, they’ll be able to tell their favourite stories or even create their very own plays for everyone to enjoy. Puppet theatre is an extremely creative form of play and children love getting absorbed in telling tales (and receiving applause at the end). As they get more absorbed in their puppets they may even want to create their own or make new stages and props to feature in their stories.
To encourage other forms of creative play you can treat your child to a kids’ fancy dress outfit, whether it’s for characters from their favourite books or films or even superheroes. Face painting kits can help them add an extra layer of fun to their games. And if they’re playing princesses then children’s make-up sets can help them get a glamorous look. An important part of role play is having the right props and accessories, and we’ve got plenty of options including shop play sets and kids’ kitchens for you to choose from.
Younger children might not want to dress up, but they’ll still enjoy playing games with toys and taking them on adventures around the house. Some children love toys based on their favourite shows, like Peppa Pig toys, Paw Patrol, or Ben and Holly. Animal toys let them create farms and zoos in their bedroom populated with every beast imaginable, and of course every child needs a teddy bear who will join them on every adventure and is there to keep them warm and comfy at bedtime.
