James absolutely loves all things transport related, like a lot of toddlers. We were in Poundland the other day, collecting some bits and bobs for our holiday, and we picked up a pack of styrofoam aeroplanes. You get nine aeroplanes in one pack.
The fact you have to build the planes, and there are various weights and propellers means this has longevity as a cheap treat, because as James gets older he can experiment a bit with the various models. Obviously, we’ll have to buy more packs in the future for this to be true, because they’re so fragile; they won’t last!
I love how much James has really enjoyed these planes. I remember making planes like this when I was little, and Rob does too! They’ve been good for indoor and outdoor play, and also for starting conversations when we’ve been out this week; more than one checkout operator has been forced into a conversation about an aeroplane!
