Hand's up who still has Christmas shopping to do? I do. Every single year I say that I will get organised for Christmas early and every single year I am still doing a little bit of last minute present shopping on Christmas eve. And one gift that I always find hard to buy is presents for young children as a mum to two very young children I know that there is a huge selection of baby and toddler toys on the market but to be honest a lot of them kind of do the same thing. So I am always on the look out for something a bit different when I am present buying as I don't want to buy a gift that someone else will buy for my children.
So when Bright Starts asked if Sophia (18 months old) would like to try out a one of there toys called Nest 'n' Sing Pots of course I agreed. When Sophia was younger we had a Bright Starts bouncer and play mat for her and she still has a few of there smaller baby teething toys and rattles which she loved. But I never knew that they also made toys for toddlers until recently and I had never seen the Nest 'n' Sing Pots before so I was really interested to see what they would be like.

When they arrived Sophia's face lit up the moment we opened the box and she seen them and she had to play with them there and then. The Nest 'n' Sing Pots are three saucepans that all stack together and they are the perfect size for toddlers and baby's to play with and they are really light too . They are nice and bright and colourful which young children love and they play really catchy tunes , but don't worry all you parents out there the tune is not loud and annoying like so many toys can be. I have never had to turn the sound off yet and we have had them a few weeks now.
The little pots all stack together and Sophia easily stacks them up and really enjoys doing so as when you stack them up that makes the music play. There is also a pop up carrot on the top green pot which pops up and down and she loves this and laughs at it. There is also a little button on the front of the blue bottom pot which lights up when the music plays and baby Jacob (3 months) is amazed by the red flashing light and never takes his eyes off it.

As I mentioned the music is not annoying on these Nest 'n' Sing pots there is some familiar tunes you may recognise but there is also some rather cute little rhymes about the pots and about cooking which is good for teaching children about cooking. And it also encourages children to stack the pots as each time they stack a pot it will play a tune or say which pot they have stacked.
Sophia really loved the Nest 'n' Sing Pots she has been playing with them every single day since we were sent them a few weeks ago. They are recommended for children aged six months to three years but I think a slightly younger baby would enjoy them too as my son Jacob is three months and he loves the music and the flashing light on the front. And even a slightly older child might enjoy them too as they would be perfect for playing with in a toy kitchen.
|Perfect for little hands to play with|
What we loved about the Nest 'n' Sing Pots is that they are not big and bulky they easily stack together when not being played with and easily fit in the toy box without taking up much room. They are lots of fun for toddlers to play with and most importantly they are easy for toddlers to play with as the handles on the pots are nice and big and easy for little hands to grip, and they are so easy to stack together and the carrot is easy to push down too. Young children will love the music these play and mums and dads will too as it wont drive them crazy.

I really recommend these Nest 'n' Sing Pots to anyone who is looking for a present for either there own or a relative or friends child as they would make a really lovely present. They are different to any other toy that I have seen recently too. And they are really affordable at just £14.99 which I think is great value for such a great toy that will bring hours of enjoyment for a young child. I know that this will be a toy that will continue to be played with in are household for many years to come, and I will be buying Sophia and Jacob many more Bright Start toys in the future as they both love this one so much.
Thank you Bright Starts for sending Sophia this toy she loved it lots and we give the Nest 'n' Sing Pots a huge 10/10 as she loves them so much and I can not fault them in anyway at all.
