The Uk’s favourite toys for the last 100 years are being celebrated in a set of 10 stamps by the Royal Mail. Included in the line up are some of our own personal family favourites that I can remember playing with when I was little too.
The inventor of Fuzzy-Felt, Lois Allan, manufactured felt gaskets for sealing tank components during World War Two and they have had a revival thanks to the commemorative stamps. Fuzzy-Felt is in good company alongside the likes of Space Hoppers, Sindy and Stickle Bricks…
The stamps have been released at over 7000 post offices and are also available to buy online.
We were kindly sent a pack of the new design Fuzzy-Felt to see if the girls loved it as much as I did when I was little and I am so thankful that Amelia took to it like a duck to water! She loves jigsaws and making things so to be honest I didn’t really expect anything else.
The felt comes in sheets and need to be carefully pressed out, this was easier than I thought. At first I was worried Amelia would tear some but they are really strong and ideal for little hands. I would have loved more images for her to copy from as she loved the one picture of the school and pond etc but seemed to not know what to do when left to it herself.
Overall thought I would recommend Fuzzy-Felt just as much now as I would have back a couple of decades ago! There are a lot of different sets to purchase including people and everyday items through to Disney Princesses and cartoon characters. John Adams are a huge name in toys so a brand I would trust too – I just hope the girls love it for many years to come!
We were sent a pack for the purposes of this review. All opinions and views are my own and genuine.
