Lately Hayley has been packing up her pretend food, cups, forks and all the fixings for the perfect meal into a bag and hiding under the dining room table for a picnic. It is seriously the sweetest cutest thing ever when Derek invites her on a “Mission” and he packs up his camping gear, she brings all her food and off they go to save the world!
Recently I was given the opportunity to review Alex Toys Picnic Basket. Yes….EXACTLY what Hayley needed for her under the table picnics or for when she joined Derek on a life saving mission to fight injustice. What I love about my girl is she will save the world and serve you a cupcake in the same minute! Strong and sweet!
Hayley was immediately taken by the basket before she even knew what was inside. Hayley quickly ran to her big brother to show him what she had gotten for their missions and to ask him to use his muscles to help her open it. Derek, who apparently was Captain Hook at the moment said “Oh course fair maiden”
When we began taking out all the picnic necessities, 4 cups, 4 plates, 4 sets of utensils and a picnic blank all packaged in a beautiful wicker basket; we ALL were amazed by it for different reasons!! Derek loved that everything was blue, “Finally cups without princesses on them!” Hayley loved that it had a “blanket for my food” and I loved that it was sturdy, made obviously well and would stand up to dropping on the floor or being stepped on once in a while (Since my kids are kids these things happen)
Our biggest test of a toy in our house is how long it holds the kids interest and the Alex Toys Picnic Basket is a winner!! Hayley has been having picnics daily with Derek, their stuffed animals and they have all been on some pretty top secret missions with their new picnic basket!!
We are already huge Alex Toys fans in our house. Their Art Boxes are amazing, we buy them for the kids all the time and make the perfect birthday party gift!!
