Children are really missing their normal routine during the Coronavirus lockdown.
Every Childs routine is different but usually includes exercise, preschool, hobbies and social activities so we have tried our best to maintain these.
Social development is a really important part of learning and development for children.
They learn to take turns, have patience, and share to name a few aspects.
To continue this we have been Face timing Isabella’s cousin and friends.
Isabella and her cousin Annabelle both love Kindi Kids so they have been using them to play together which has been so lovely to watch and so great for them to act out their emotions.
Maintaining these friendships is also really going to help them return to school.
We have also been trying to keep to the same routine plan, getting up at the same times and maintaining the usual bedtime and meal times.
We do some activities that the preschool have sent us and read stories together.
We also made a little chart like they used in preschool to do the days of the Week, Month, Season and weather.
Moose Toys so kindly gifted Isabella a Rainbow Kate Kindi Kid and the Puppy Petkin Delivery Scooter.
We are always very grateful when we are gifted something and always give an honest review.
I knew these would be an instant hit with Isabella as she already has and loves her Marsha Mello Kindi Kid doll.
We also already have the Rabbit Petkin Shopping Cart and the Kitty Petkin Supermarket which I also highly recommend.
Kindi Kids have made some amazing activity cards which have been so useful for keeping up with our exercise.
I have linked the free activity cards for you to download.
We have been doing these along with our daily walks.
Isabellas favourite activity from the cards has been throwing things into a laundry basket. Perfect for developing her hand and eye coordination. It’s also a really good gross motor activity.
Rainbow Kate and Marsha Mello have been like Isabella’s best friends during lockdown and so we have tried to incorporate them into most of our learning activities.
We love sensory play and Isabella was really missing trips to the beach so we made our very own beach. Complete with water, sand and shells for Isabella and the Kindi Kids to enjoy.
One of our favourite things about the Kindi Kids is the amazing accessories them come with.
Each doll comes with two accessories and they are so detailed. We used the Slushi sparkle drink and strawberry as part of the picnic for the beach activity.
The dolls are absolutely beautiful and have huge sparkly eyes.
I love their cool funky outfits with matching shoes and hair accessories.
The dolls are 10 inches tall so a really good size for playing with. They can also stand on their own or sit.
The clothes are removable which is another cool aspect. Isabella loves taking Rainbow Kate’s crunchy out and brushing her colourful hair.
The Kindi kids Puppy Petkin Delivery Scooter is just so much fun.
I love how all the items are designed so that the dolls can stand alone on them. Each item has been clearly very carefully thought out.
The scooter comes with a compartment on the back to put your accessories in and it also has a little holder at the front to pop the dolls magic cups in.
If you can’t tell already, I’m a huge fan and even I love to play with them. They really remind me of some dolls I had as a child called Little Miss Make Up so bring back some lovely memories of my sister and I playing with our dolls.
I think these dolls are such a great buy and we will certainly be adding to our collection as they also do a Peppa mint, Jessi Cake and Donatina. Don’t you just love the names?
You can purchase them from Argos .
Rainbow Kate is a RRP of £25 and the Puppy Petkin Delivery Scooter is a RRP of £15 , really good value for money.
We also enjoy watching the Kindi kids episodes on YouTube and this has been great when I needed five minutes peace.
If you have any questions about them, we would be very happy to answer.
Thanks so much for reading and thank you to Moose Toys for allowing us this opportunity to review them.
