Celebrating 2 Years on the Great Little Trading Co Testing Team, and WIN a Cherry Tree Play Kitchen!

When I stop and look back on what is coming up to 5 years of blogging, and nearly 4 years of writing this blog, one of the highlights has been working with some great brands, in particular one of my favourites, The Great Little Trading Co. 

I initially approached them almost 2 years ago, looking to review their children’s ‘play shop and theatre’, and from there was born the GLTC Testing Team collective alongside some other ace bloggers, and the chance to build a brilliant relationship with a trusted brand, give an opinion on some awesome products and solidify some blogging friendships. 

To summarise, I’m pretty glad I decided to bite the bullet and get in touch! 

The team at GLTC are a dream to work with, and really value the views and opinions of bloggers and their children in exchange for some honest reviewing of their toys and furniture. The testing team have named play kitchens, decided on colour schemes and given opinions on bedding ranges. It’s so refreshing to work for a company that just ‘gets’ it, when others seem to expect bloggers to work for free, or do a lot of hard graft for minimal compensation. 

At 5 and 6, and with a new baby imminent, I feel that our family have been ‘good testees’ (is that a word?!)- I love interiors and love nothing more than planning and doing up gorgeous spaces for our little ones, and they love role play, so have been perfect at trying out various toys in this vein. 

To celebrate my nearly 2 years on the Great Little Trading Co Testing Team, I have a brilliant prize to giveaway on the blog today- A GLTC ‘Cherry Tree’ Play Kitchen, worth £205! 

This fantastic unisex play kitchen is packed with things to do and there is just SO much detail. I love the little details the design team have added: the taps are named ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ to help children recognise the words, the washing machine also has symbols and words around the dial (as well as a soap drawer), and the hob has a glowing flame effect for extra play value. Made from sturdy wood, and of a decent size, I can vouch that the kitchen can withstand some heavy play (we have the Cherry Tree’s stablemate, the ‘Sea Salt’ and have reviewed it previously). 

At 6 and a half (and a tall one at that!), Freddie is still getting almost daily use out of his and Sasha’s kitchen, and we’re confident it will last for their little brother when he gets a bit older. 

So…to be in with a chance of winning a Cherry Tree Play Kitchen, just fill out the Rafflecopter below using as many of the options as you’d like.

Good Luck!
