It’s the Character Pre-School Week on UKMums.TV and we’re taking time out to play with Character Options, and to talk about the importance of imaginative play time! As part of this takeover, we’re highlighting some of Character Options’ most popular Pre-school toys.
This is a company that is famous for bringing children’s favourite TV characters into the playroom, and one of their most magical ranges is Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom!
Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom is an enchanting pre-school series set in a magical place where fairies and elves really exist! It’s become a top viewing choice for families, thanks to the way it promotes friendship, perseverance and positive values. It’s perhaps unsurprising that the show translates so well into toys that children can’t put down!
Character Options’ Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom toys invite kids to be imaginative. Little ones can use the toys to re-enact the episodes they’ve seen on TV and they can also create original storylines of their own. They offer endless hours amusement for Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom fans!
