Christmas is all wrapped up for Isla now she has discovered SmartMax & their amazing range of magnetic toys! We were very kindly sent the brand new ‘My First Safari Animals’ set to test & invited Isla’s BFF Poppy to come join in the fun.

The second the girls saw the box they were begging me to open it – when you do each animal is individually wrapped too so I would recommend pre-opening it and getting it ready for playtime. These two impatient little ladies couldn’t wait another second to have a go!

It was so lovely to see the girls figure it all out for themselves – testing each piece to see which ‘clicked’!

They worked together to create each animals – and found it absolutely hilarious that you have to put the ‘bum bum’ on the ‘jelly belly’ before you can put the head on!

It wasn’t long before they were creating all sorts of different animal combinations… but the Crocodile still went round and ate everyone up…

When I told Isla she could keep them and play with them all day she couldn’t believe her luck! I think this face says it all…

When you walk into most toy shops you are confronted with huge aisles of pink & glittery plastic so we are always trying to find gender neutral toys for Isla that will challenge her and help her imagination grow – SmartMax has created something really special here. It’s the perfect size to fit in toddler hands, the plastic is great quality and the magnets and safely secured inside. We will be adding the rest of the SmartMax range to Isla’s future Christmas & Birthday lists for a long time I’m sure!

We can’t recommend this brilliant toy enough – make sure you let us know if it makes it under your tree – and send us pictures on Christmas Day of your very happy toddlers!!
