Giveaway: Up To The Moon

| November 19, 2011

This competition is now closed

A couple of months ago, we had a fabulous giveaway from Up To The Moon – a very generous £45 giftvoucher – it was so popular, that the lovely owner from Up To The Moon decided to repeat the giveaway for you.. Firstly, Up To The Moon is a wonderful family run business focussing on Educational Toys, Crafts and Gift ideas! Each item is hand picked by the  owner and has to pass the “Outstanding” criteria that she has set. Only the best for you!

This week you can win another £45 gift voucher in time to sort out a brilliant Christmas order!

If I was shopping for Christmas (ahem, I am) this is what I would buy….

Slice & Bake Wooden Cook Set. This is one of the most adorable “cooking sets around”.. both of my kids have already played with this at friends houses and as cookie make is big in our house, this is a very popular toy!

String a Farm Wooden Beads. We actually have a set like this. We were lucky enough to receive it as a gift when Red Ted was small. We still love it now… you get bead AND play AND store the toy… great “carry” along today and would be  a lovely gift for a newborn to grow into or for a 1st birthday. My kids are 4yrs and 2yrs and still play with it!

Car Playmat.  Yep, cars are big in our house, both with Red Ted and Pip Squeak. This the perfect kids’ bedroom rug solution. Love it.

Big Safari Natural Science Kit. I love how there is plenty on Up To The Moon for older kids too. They have a great “filter function” on the site, where you can search by gender and age.  How about this Bug Safari? A great way to explore nature in your own back garden.

So…want to win the voucher so you can go on a spending spree?

1) Then just pop over to Up To The Moon have a look round, come back and let us know what YOU would spend on your OLDEST child in your family/ circle of friends this Christmas! Tell us the age of the child, the gender and what gift you would select….

Done. You don’t have to… but of course I would LOVE for you to subscribe to my blog as well as like on Facebook!

Open to UK residents only. Closes on midnight 28 November 2011. Winner will be chosen via

    Oh man! I love this site. I was literally making a list of all the dinosaur toys we would get, but then I saw the cardboard castle/fort and I was in love! I am a childminder of kids (boys and girls) aged 2-5 so I have to think about toys that are suitable for everyone and great for the imagination!

    Great site, great giveaway.

    Blue Skies,
    Charlotte xo

    ps I’m also a follower on FB

  2. Maggy….do you mean what we would buy for the oldest child….or how much we would spend like I would spend £75?? Im a tad confused….sorry

    your entry requirement states come back and let us know what you would spend on your oldest child.

    thanks hun

  3. Red Ted Art says:

    Hi Elaine! Sorry, it is confusing… just look at the toys that are there and say what you would buy (whatever the price), ie what toy you like. And just share that with us on here on the comments!

  4. Make do mum says:

    I’d go for the wooden dolls house for my 2 year old (does it come with the ninja figure – sitting on the armchair – as pictured?!!)

  5. mermaid says:

    Oh, thanks for the link! Found so many lovely ideas!
    I`m going to get Horrid Henry Hand Puppets for my 6 year old daughter!!

  6. The oldest child in my family is my 11 year old nephew. I think he would love the Zoob Car Designer (£27:99) He is a big fan on Meccano so this would be a different take on it for him. I already subscribe and like on FB @RedRoseMummy

  7. Liz Burton says:

    I only have the one child, she’s 3. I think I’d buy some hand puppets as she has a theatre but not many sets of puppets. The Little Red Riding Hood set looks lovely.

  8. Jason Johnson says:

    I think my eldest (and I!) would love the Hyperlauncher Rocket Ball Factory Science Kit. Santa may be delivering soon.

  9. Rachel Davies says:

    I would have to go for the Calculator Cash Register for My nephew who is 7. He is forever playing bus driver when he comes over my house. Perhaps if he had something to put my change in he wouldnt always go home with it in his pocket ! ….. His mammy taught him well. Only downfall would be if my dear brother asks his wife (nephews mum) if she wants anything from the shop and she replies “the cash register” my nephew may take to the idea and take it home with him… i’d have to look at other alternatives on the up to the moon website then to keep him occupied.

  10. Sean Moore says:

    My 2 year old would love the Bug Safari Kit as she loves looking around the garden for spiders but I think I would choose the Smart Toss Bean Bag Game (£39.99) as this will aid hand eye co ordination and be fun for her to play at the same time.

  11. Zoe G says:

    I would love to get the Deep Space Home Planetarium for my 7yr old son, he loves the night sky and really interested in the stars and planets.

  12. Avril Alexander says:

    Hi! My oldest child, Reece is 7. I would buy him the Deep Space Home Planetarium & Projector. He is obsessed with space after getting him a telescope for his birthday so would be a great way to teach him even more. x

  13. sarah tulley says:

    I’d have to get this for my daughter aged 6 she LOVES making puppets herself and putting on shows if she had her own theatre shop she’d be soo happy 😀

  14. amanda coker says:

    this site is fab, i could spend all day looking at all the wonderful toys you have, i would buy the bug safari natural science kit as my son loves things like that. hes alraedy got worm world and ant world and spends hours with them

  15. Harpal Kaur says:

    I would buy the car playmat for my 4 year old daughter

  16. Kelly Koya says:

    My daughter would love the bath Bomb factory

    She is 11 and loves luxurious baths and crafts, so this would be perfect.

  17. Jamie-Lee Norris says:

    I absolutely love all the toys but as my daughter is animal mad i would choose the Wooden Farm Set – Eco Friendly. Wooden toys are always of higher quality, more realistic and provide hours of entertainment especially this farm. My daughter is 15 months old and i could use this to teach her the noiss the animal makes as well as developing her imagination skills.

    My eldest son will be turning 8 in February but is quite mature for his age so I know he would just love the Zoob Car Designer set as he in Grand Prix mad and loves anything to do with cars and racing! To go with it I would buy him the Remote control Hairy Tarantula as I think he would get lots of enjoyment from scaring his younger brother, two sister and me!

    I would buy The moving monkey gears set for my son who is 3. He will sit with a toy if it is captivating and play really well on his own trying things out and changing bits around.
