Gummy Lump Toys Review & Giveaway

We love wooden toys in our house, the quality is just so much better than some of the cheap plastic toys. So three years ago, back when we only had one child, for my oldest son's 2nd birthday I wanted to get him a wooden kitchen set. Now finding a wooden kitchen set that wasn't pink and girly was a small challenge, but I turned to Gummy Lump because they had a nice selection. We wound up buying the Melissa & Doug Country Kitchen from Gummy Lump. Three years later we all still love it. Here it is shown in our messy playroom. You'll notice the oven door is missing. We had to take it off because the twins were crawling in there and then closing the door which made me nervous. It has held up very nicely despite being beaten up by my boys every day.



Gummy Lump also has a large selection of Melissa & Doug play food sets and it seems as though they always have some kind of deal going on. Right now, all Melissa & Doug toys are 20% off PLUS if you buy 3 of the play food sets, you get the 4th FREE! My boys have several of the sets, I think their favorite is probably the Cutting Food Box.

We also have several Melissa & Doug Floor Puzzles in our house. Gummy Lump was kind enough to send us the Underwater Floor Puzzle to try out and add to our collection. The floor puzzles are for ages 3 and up and contain 48 puzzle pieces. When put together, the puzzle measures 2 feet by 3 feet.  What is great about these large floor puzzles is that the pieces are nice and big which makes it easy for little hands to grasp and manipulate. My boys love dumping the pieces out on the floor and putting them together. The twins are still a little young for these, but they still enjoy participating and helping. I will often steer them to where the piece goes and they will "snap" it in. When they are done, they love breaking it all up and starting over again.



Now I have talked an awful lot about Melissa & Doug Toys so far, but you will find more than that at Gummy Lump. They also sell Automoblox (LOVE these), Plasma Cars, Haba Toys and so very much more. If you are looking for quality, fun and educational toys for kids, Gummy Lump is definitely a site you need to browse!

Shop
As I mentioned, Gummy Lump currently has some great deals going on. All Melissa & Doug toys are 20% off and don't forget the play food special of buy 3 get 4th free!

    Not that it's any of my business (which is what busybodies always say, isn't it?), but it seems unfair to exclude people who don't have a lot of twitter friends. My husband, for instance, doesn't have that many followers, but his tweet might be just as helpful as mine. You really can't tell by numbers.
