Our Guide To Autumn Fun

Autumn doesn’t have to mean that outdoor activity has to stop; in fact we think it’s the perfect excuse for children to pull on their wellies and get outside. This season the Woodland Trust has a selection of exciting activities for children of all ages including becoming a Nature Detective, exploring woods and forests, hunting for autumn leaves and picking pine cones and berries.

The Importance of Role Play Toys

We understand the importance of role play on a child’s development so we’ve ensured that our range of toys incorporate an element of pretend play. Our toys are ideal for solo or sibling play and when friends come over and although our toys are designed with children in mind, you might even be asked to join in too.

We’ve introduced some exciting new products to our Autumn Winter range are perfect for promoting creativity and role play amongst children and will enable imaginations to run wild.

There’s the Brighton Kitchen a compact wooden toy which still has plenty to keep kids busy. Team it up with the Red Toy Cookware Set for that extra touch.

Baking fun with the kids

When it comes to entertaining the kids having a little fun with some biscuit dough and a bit of royal icing should be top of the rainy day list (or any list for that  matter!) It’s a really inexpensive way to while away the hours at very little cost. I was asked by the lovely folks at GLTC to create an exclusive recipe for them so here goes…

It doesn’t matter what age your kids are their abilities and talents will shine through and in my experience once they have a piping bag full of colourful royal icing in their hands they’re happy – even the pre-teens!

Concentrating hard!

Back To School!

Back to school 20150824

Summer is sadly coming to an end, which means it’s time to get organised for school and the new term. Whether your little one is starting or returning, the excitement of buying a new school bag and stationery means that it can be a fun experience.

Here at GLTC, we have everything to help get you organised for the new term including pencils, pencil cases, towels and swim bags. To ensure your child avoids the lost property box we offer a personalisation service and have a wide selection of name labels so your child and their favourite items will never be parted.


Great Little Bake Off competition – Winner Announced!

Our Great Little Bake Off competition was launched to celebrate the return of the Great British Bake Off to our screens. We were inundated with entries and loved looking through the pictures you submitted, even if they did make us quite hungry afterwards.

The Star Baker was Rajvir Thakore whose Vanilla Cupcake cones were chosen as the winning entry and we’re sure Mary Berry would be equally as impressed as we were. Rajvir’s decribed her master bake as Vanilla cupcake cones with Madagascan vanilla buttercream and a gooey homemade strawberry jam surprise centre. Topped with colourful sprinkles, strawberry sauce and a classic stick of crumbly chocolate.


We wanted to thank everyone that entered the competition and would like to share some of our favourite bakes. Continue reading
