Toys and Giveaway!!

By Bec

You may be aware the big mid-year toy sales started Thursday at Kmart and Big W, and the Target one is a month or so away.  It's a frenzy.....I've been reading on parenting forums the extent some people go to to stock up on toys (shopping at midnight, going the day before to stalk where the toys they want will be, going in pairs so one can shop whilst one waits in the layby line).  It seems crazy! And personally layby is not my have to then go back into the store fortnightly to pay it off - too hard!!

So I think it's a great time to do some online toy shopping through Little Yoyo Styles!  I decided to see what would be on my toy wish list and have found the following:

For my 4 year old son
Kidkraft fun explorers pirate play set
This would be awesome for imaginative play for my son. He loves pirates and treasure!!

Zoobie pets lencho the lion
Is it a toy?  Is it a pillow?  Is it a blanked?  No, it's ALL 3!!  How awesome!  This would be particulary good for travelling in the car or plane!


We have used this, smells great and is easy to use!! I would love to get a few more!!

Robot measuring tape

My son loves measuring, and this will make it so much fun!!  Not only that he is learning maths at the same time!!

For my 2 year old daughter
Mother garden wild strawberry flower kitchen
Just look at it!!  Need I say more!!!  It even comes with accessories!

Mother garden wild strawberry lunch sandwich

This would go great with the kitchen.  Fantastic for imaginative play!!

Pinwheels and pearls ribbon wands

She loves twirling these at ballet!!  She would love one to play with at home!


All stylish girls need a pair of cute sunglasses!!

I could add plenty more to my wish list, there are real gems to be found on the site if you have a little search!!

Now the exciting part - Little Yoyo Styles is giving away a $50 voucher for one lucky reader to spend on toys.  All you have to do is tell me what is your favourite toy from the Little Yoyo Styles store in the comments section below.  Make sure you include your contact details so we can contact you if you are a winner.
Competition is open until midnight AEST 16th July.  I will draw a winner using random org.


  1. I have to agree with Bec and say I'm a massive fan of the fun explorers pirate play set also. What kid wouldn't want to own that rad ship!!

  2. So many gorgeous things to choose from! I would love the Mother Garden Wooden Castle Block Set for my daughter. I adore wooden toys and this looks colourful and well made. It is also a great way to get little girls into playing with blocks.

  3. I love playing pretend picnics so I'd pick the the Wild Strawberry Lunch Box. Fabulous.

  4. I love everything! But my favourite would have to be the Mother garden - Wooden Safari Kitchen! Its so hard to find a unisex wooden kitchen that doesnt stand out like a sore thumb in your house, good work little yo yo's

  5. Huge fan of anything Pirates so the pirates play set :)

  6. I have just fallen madly in love with the Mother garden - Wild Strawberry Deluxe Kitchen!!! Gorgeous!

  7. Pirate set! Hours of fun to be had!

  8. I would have to say the KidKraft - Derby Rocking Horse in White for 3-8 yr olds, it is gorgeous and both the girls can use it plus it can be used a a pretty decor item in the house when the girls out grow it. Plus I love Kidkraft.

  9. It hasn't seemed to show up...the winner was number 6 - Tara! Enjoy Tara!
