I love shopping haul challenges. When I was given the chance to head over to the PoundToy website with a £50 voucher to spend on their website I was eager to see what I could get for my money. I know the website is called PoundToy, but don’t let this confuse you. Of course some toys are £1 and even less, but most are over £1. The prices are still rock bottom though, and very competitive with high street and other online toy stores.
Plus most of the items are branded toys. If you are looking for birthday and Christmas gifts and are on a budget, this website is for you. They also have a great party supplies section – everyone in one place!
We worked with Wicked Uncle back in 2016 on a challenge post with them and it was such great fun! This year we are simply writing a review on a toy we have chosen to look at. Which happens to be a fantastic little wooden railway train set.
A little about Wicked Uncle
Wicked Uncle gave us the opportunity to select toys to review with a £40 voucher. I love how their site is divided into age categories plus boys and girls toys. Yes I know some people find it wrong to have boys and girls toys and they should be gender neutral or whatever, but I grew up with girls and boys toys and so did my generation and we are alright!
PoundToy are a website that specialises in kids toys. Their prices are guaranteed to beat the high street. So when they got in touch asking if we wanted to try out their website and of course go shopping we jumped at the challenge.
There are many toys and games to browse through. Toys for different ages are categorised in appropriate age brackets and also brands. So if you are looking for Fireman Sam toys you can go straight to that section. I know the website is called PoundToy, but the prices range all the way from 30p right up to toys £20+.
They also sell party supplies like party bag fillers, toys and fancy dress costumes. So a great alternative if you are planning birthday parties.

One of baby girl’s first phrases was “cup of tea?” So being asked to share our thoughts on the Mr Kipling Tea Set was perfect! I’m a huge fan of Mr Kipling’s cakes, French Fancies being my favourite although Cherry Bakewells come a close second. Mmmm shame I don’t have any in the kitchen cupboard at the moment!
Everyone adores Mr Kipling’s cakes! Featuring replicas of the much-loved cakes including French Fancies, Battenberg and Cherry Bakewells for arranging on the two-tiered cake stand. Each cake features a shaped bottom for children to locate the correct corresponding shape on the easily assembled cake stand – so not only is it a fantastic role play toy, it has shape-sorting fun too!
The Snuggle Time Winnie the Pooh Plush range is adorable. I have been a huge Pooh fan since I was little. I even used to play Pooh Sticks all the time. To be given the chance to view our thoughts on the new Snuggle Time Winnie the Pooh Plush range is an awesome opportunity.
Winnie the Pooh is a fictional teddy bear created by one of the best well-known authors A. A Milne. Winnie the Pooh was named after A. A Milnes son Christopher Robin’s teddy bear. As well as his other toys Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger, Roo and Kanga who all make an appearance in the books.
The Snuggle time Winnie the Pooh collection from Posh Paws has been made especially for little ones to snuggle. Each character is soft, chunky and floppy, with delicately toned colours, perfect for cuddles.
The Snuggle Time collection comes in Small, medium (12 inch) and large sizes.
I’m a huge fan of learning, in fact I never stop. Since I left college I have completed various free and Open University courses to feed my learning craving. I’m hoping to pass this onto baby girl. I’m a huge believer of children feeding their minds of new facts, and new things. Especially when it comes down to S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art and maths) subjects.
