A great read from Amanda and the team at Grandpa's Toys based in Geraldine, South Canterbury....
As Grandpa’s toys is an independent toy shop - and locally owned and operated, we love to build relationships with like-minded companies that share these grassroots values, and the team at Holdson is definitely part of that ethos. Check out the longevity and origins of Holdson here.
At last, we have some warm hot weather to enjoy, where the kids can get outside and play. However, a rainy day is never too far away and it’s always a good idea to have some indoor rainy day activities for the kids to enjoy together - especially when camping and the online devices don’t connect!
A few of Grandpa’s Toys favourites include the ever-popular and never goes out of fashion - The Jigsaw.
Holdson is synonymous with great quality jigsaw puzzles. Check out our range here
Board games are also great for family time - The Tour of New Zealand board game has been extremely popular this Christmas - must be because we have to stay home!
Of course, jigsaw puzzles are not just for kids. Many adults also enjoy the challenge of a good puzzle. For instance, (if room allows) a good idea is to have a puzzle on the go on a table in the lounge or dining room. I have found it is a great way for kids (and adults) to spend some time challenging themselves to find the pieces and carry on with the puzzle.
In summary! Its a good idea to be prepared over the school holidays with some great puzzles and or board games. You will find they also make the most excellent Christmas presents too!
