Like a lot of people I have fond memories of Very Hungry Caterpillar from my own childhood and it was something we introduced to LP and Little Man early in their lives. When Wild & Wolf offered us the opportunity to review some of their Very Hungry Caterpillar product range I think I was more excited than LP!
We were sent a beautiful Tulip Divided Plate, a Paper Chains Kit and a Stamper Kit. Straight away LP demanded the plate for lunch and has used it daily since. The sections are perfect for giving a variety of foods at meal times and the plate makes lunch that little bit more exciting. It’s also great eating from it to reveal the Very Hungry Caterpillar at the end! The plus point for me is that the plate is really easy to clean and there’s no worry of LP breaking it – it’ll be used constantly in the garden next summer!
The Paper Chain Kit was something I loved doing with LP and something we hadn’t done before. I always used to make paper chains as a child and LP loved making the chains with me. Each paper strip has a line of glue to lick and easily sticks down. The strips come in five different bold designs and I loved seeing the Very Hungry Caterpillar illustrations on each paper strip. This really does make beautiful paper chains! The set makes over 12 metres of paper chains, enough for quite a few paper chain making sessions. It is a great rainy day activity or would make a lovely addition to a nursery or decoration at a Birthday party.
The Stamper Kit comes with 6 wooden stamps and 2 ink pads, a red and a green. The stamps create lovely clear images of food items, the Very Hungry Caterpillar in various forms and the butterfly. This is a really beautiful set that LP will love for years. The stamps were a good size for LP to hold and the stamp pads were really nice and inky – you often get ones that are quite dry but these were really nice and absorbant. The set would make a lovely gift.
The Wild & Wolf Very Hungry Caterpillar range is beautiful with most items being great for both girls and boys. If you are looking for a gift then you could do a lot worse than any of the products from the range – most children would love them. Wild and Wolf have a lot of other ranges that are all equally as beautiful and there are ranges to suit everyone. If you have a moment free to browse online then it is well worth taking a look at the Wild & Wolf website.
