Casdon Post Office Toy | Review

Note: this item was sent to us for the purpose of this review but all opinions are honest and my own. 

One memory that really stands out from my childhood is when I used to play with cardboard boxes (stick with me here...I promise it will make sense in a minute!). I used to love getting a huge box and creating an office desk or a library. I used to sit behind them and stamp away and pretend to answer the phone. My favourite game to play with a good old cardboard box though, was post office. I used to cut slots out so that the letters could be posted, would create little magazines then I could put on display to sell and would pretend I had a stamp and would stamp away. It was simple, imaginative fun.
Needless to say, things have advance a little in the last 25 years and I was so excited when we were sent a Post Office set from Casdon for Pickle to review. I knew he's love it but I was secretly excited because I'd get to relive my childhood play days too!!

This play set comes with everything you need to play Post Offices including:

  • Scales
  • Coins and note money and a little till to keep them in
  • A stamp and stamper pad (think this was what I was most excited about!)
  • Postbox
  • Postcards
  • Magazines
  • Cards
  • A magazine rack
  • Little parcles to weigh on the scales
  • Pencil and paper
  • Mini application forms and leaflets
All of this for just £12.99 (although I have seen it for under £10 in some stores!). Pickle is obsessed with this set and will spend ages playing with it. The box says it's suitable for children aged 3+ which I think is right as some of the bits are very small or could be easily ripped. Smidge has already tried to get involved and managed to rip a couple of bits much to Pickles distress. 

In my opinion, this would make a perfect gift for a reception aged child as it will help encourage imaginative pay and help them with counting.
