TNP Ambassadors' Review: Wilton Bradley’s Paint Your Own Kits thumbnail

Our little toy testers – affectionately known as our TNP Ambassadors – are well versed in the practice of putting toys, games and playthings through their paces. Before now, the reviews from our squad of TNP Ambassadors have only been published within the print issue of Toys ‘n’ Playthings. But, if ever there’s a time for us to bring the thoughts and recommendations of our tiny testers online, it’s now!

Families are spending more time than ever indoors. And as each day passes, with social distancing and lockdown measures in place, parents are having to come up with new and exciting ways of keeping the kids entertained – and educated – while they remain safely at home.  

The products first up for toy testing are Wilton Bradley’s Paint Your Own kits from the Made It! range. Harry, aged five, was gifted a Paint Your Own Piggy Bank to try out, while his sister Isabelle, aged nine, was gifted a Paint Your Own Unicorn Money Box.   

Isabelle was appropriately kitted out for her review, as she donned a unicorn onesie. She said: “I love unicorns, and really enjoy art, so I was excited to receive a Paint Your Own Unicorn Money Box.” 

Brother Harry was just as thrilled with his Piggy Bank! 

Dad Alex told TNP that the family has been working hard to keep the kids busy during lockdown. Among other activities and games, they’ve organised a couple of craft projects to do with the children, which Alex and Isabelle have really enjoyed. 

Alex says: “Lockdown has been a bit of a balancing act when it comes to work, home-schooling and keeping the kids entertained. We try and balance screen time with schoolwork and other fun activities. But to be honest, as more time has passed with the country in lockdown, we’ve been finding it increasingly hard to come up with new ideas. So, we were really grateful to receive these arts and crafts products.  

“The kids love an opportunity to get creative. Isabelle is really artistic – Art is her favourite subject at school. And Harry enjoys getting mucky, all in the name of art! So, they were happy enough when we set the table up for a craft project and gave them their new craft kits!“ 

And fortunately for us, Alex was on hand to capture the process from start to finish!
