Something a little bit different this week – I’ve used the latest Early Learning Centre voucher codes, Toucan Box voucher codes and Smyths Toys voucher codes to see if I can find some savings on vintage-inspired toys. Looking for actual vintage toys is a bit beyond my remit I’m afraid – firstly, they’re more the preserve of antique shops than online toy stores, and secondly, they’re probably not that suitable for actually playing with anymore. So instead, I’m looking at retro toys – the sort that go back to basics and remind you of your own childhood. They don’t have to be made out of wood, but it certainly helps!
The Early Learning Centre is the obvious choice for my first stop – as any parent out there knows, they specialise in classic-looking, good quality functional toys that satisfy curious minds. Here you can buy everything from fancy dress and soft baby toys to puzzles and wooden musical instruments. Current Early Learning Centre voucher codes can save you up to 50% on selected items, so I’ve picked out these three that could suit any budget…
ELC Wooden Diner Kitchen in Pink – was £150, now £75 with Early Learning Centre voucher codes
ELC Mouth Organ – was £3.50, now £2.80 with Early Learning Centre voucher codes
ELC Wooden Maraca – was £5, now £4 with Early Learning Centre voucher codes
Next I’m highlighting an online shop that many of you, even parents, might not have heard of. Toucan Box is an innovative company with a clever idea – they send you different craft boxes for your children to enjoy every month, or on a one off basis. There are themes such as ‘Jurassic Excavation’ and ‘Kings and Queens’ and they have a classic, minimalistic look to them. To be honest, it’s a relief to find this sort of thing that isn’t a tie-in to any recently released movie or TV series! Using current Toucan Box voucher codes that get you 10% off your order when you spend £30 or more, I’ve selected these three packages to give you an example of what they can offer…
Paint-A-Rocket Playhouse Set – was £34.95, now £31.46 with Toucan Box voucher codes
8 Months Delivery of Grande Toucan Boxes – was £99.95, now £89.96 with Toucan Box voucher codes
Party Bags of 10 Petite Toucan Boxes – was £39.95, now £35.96 with Toucan Box voucher codes
And now for outdoor toys. You can’t go wrong with retro-inspired outdoor toys and you can find a great selection of savings when you order them using Smyths Toys voucher codes. There are some things that never go out of fashion and those things include swing sets, playhouses, swing ball, bouncy castles, paddling pools and space hoppers. I’ve included some of these here, but I’m sure you’ll still find plenty of the others online somewhere…
Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car – was £49.99, now £39.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes
Soulet Fargo Wooden Play Centre – was £349.99, now £249.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes
Castle Bouncer with Silde – was £274.99, now £159.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes
So if you’re a parent with summer holidays on the horizon (like myself), this feels like the perfect time to stock up on a few retro and vintage toys. I was going to say ‘they don’t make them like they used to’, but actually, as you can see from all of the above, they do!
