Chad Valley Play Panel – Chad Valley Airport Playset Review | Win a £75 Argos Gift Card

Evening all! I am so excited that Freddie and Sasha have once more been invited to be part of the Chad Valley Play Panel again over the next year, and they’re looking forward to road testing a few more toys so readers can find out what they’re really like. I said before that I grew up with Chad Valley toys (I adored my play Post Office), and Freddie and Sasha are so lucky that they’re getting to experience once more what this household name of a toy brand have to offer. 

Chad Valley toys are available exclusively at Argos, and with that in mind and because Christmas is coming, I’m giving you the chance to win a £75 voucher to spend there at the end of this post- hurrah!

First up though, my eldest two are going to show you the Chad Valley Airport Playset that they were sent the other week and have been playing with it ever since. It helps that Freddie is airplane mad so this was VERY welcome by him, but also S has actually really enjoyed playing with it sometimes independently of him which has been lovely to see- it’s definitely not just a ‘boys’ toy as I suspect some people may think but it couldn’t be further from the truth. 

I decided to put the airport together when the kids were at school and the baby was napping. On getting everything out of the box, I admit all the pieces looked a little daunting and I wasn’t hopeful that I would complete set up before Arlo woke up, but thankfully everything was straight forward. The instructions are a clear step-by-step guide and I was also guided by the picture on the box. I timed myself setting it up, and it took just under an hour, including putting stickers on carefully. 

I was really impressed with the level of detail that has gone into this playset, and you can see examples of this in the photos below:

When the children came home on the Friday after school they were delighted! 

I watched them play with it for ages, and asked them what they liked the most about it.

Freddie said that he liked the lift for cars and the car parking spaces as it made it feel like a real airport. 

Sasha loved the baggage conveyor belt and the mini suitcases that went with it. 

The set was nice and sturdy, sturdier than it looks in fact, and once you’ve set it up once it’s very easy to take down and store away until the next time it’s played with. If I had one criticism it would be that it would perhaps be nice if it came with more than one plane, but luckily Freddie has a decent toy plane collection that could be used with it if desired! 

At currently £32.99 (was £49.99) it would make a fabulous Christmas present for a plane-mad boy or girl!

  1. I would like to fly up to Scotland for a random adventure. I’ve only flown to Greece and Spain but it was exciting.

  2. My favourite destination to fly to is Manchester. I like that it has a great city vibe and is so different from where I come from but yet so close.

  3. I was blown away over Los Angeles, California. It was beautiful. I’m a huge night sky and lights fan! It’s an incredible sight as all the streets are in a huge grid. So neat and tidy for miles upon miles.

  4. I love planes, so anywhere outside of this country would be fine with me! I think my favourite place is Florida though as I’ve been there the most. Can’t wait to take my son as I’ve never been with kids before. By the way, your youtube link doesn’t work so I couldn’t sign up. Will try to find you another way…

  5. San Francisco is our favourite place, but it’s a ten or eleven hour flight! We go more regularly on the 45 minute flight to Amsterdam, especially as Schiphol Airport has so many shops, it keeps my wife busy for hours!

  6. I got married in Las Vegas with all my family around me so because of memories I have there that is my favorite destination

  7. I’d love to go to Greece where they filmed Shirley valentine lol. I want to sit on the edge of the water with a table, canteen of wine and sit and enjoy watching the sun go down

  8. I’ve only ever flown to Paris and benidorm benidorm was so much nicer, Paris airport was full of armed police!

  9. LA. It’s a 12 hour flight which sounds like a nightmare to most but I absolutely love the in-flight entertainment and all the meals and drinks. Bonus if you can afford first class.

  10. Fuerteventura. We net some of our BEST friends on our holidays here. The kids love it, really relaxed and fun place to visit! x

  11. Without hesitation I can say its the Algarve in Portugal. I have been going there ever since I was a child, and love it.

  12. Becky, I couldn’t find you on instagram – when I put in @BeckyFreeman it brought up loads of options but none of them seemed like yours. What should I do?

  13. I love flying to America as the flight isn’t too long if you to east coast but it’s long enough to enjoy a meal and some movies

  14. Canada would be nice. Thanks for the lovely giveaway, I think chad valley toys are great for children, as they are nice and bright and well made.

  15. Anywhere hot with a beach. Our little one is 2, and we haven’t braved taking him on a plane yet. Maybe next year…

  16. My husband and I are massive fans of the Canary Islands, especially Fuerteventura and the flight is just about bearable at 4 hours.

  17. Malaysia for sure. Lots to do and see and friendly locals and great food and weather. We have been lucky to have been able to visit twice and it’s somewhere we would like to take our daughter’s but the 14 hour flight puts us off?!

  18. I love flying so the longer flight the better, providing I don’t have the little one with me in which case a short haul flight to Malaga to see our family is just enough 🙂

  19. We haven’t flown anywhere for years but the last place we went was Faro in Portugal and that was amazing so I’ll vote there!

  20. Ive been on a plane 4 times and 2 of those 4 times something has gone wrong…from have the luggage rails falling on me to luggage being blown to pieces to flying back over the sea instead of over land lol….so i dont mind where to fly just so long as its safe ….always wanted to go to the Maldives

  21. My favourite place to fly to is ‘anywhere new’. I love the thrill of exploring new places! Of the places I have already been, South Africa was a clear winner – so many experiences in one country!

  22. Seattle. It is a pretty city to fly in to and it’s a 10 hour flight so lots of food and drinks and movies (I love to fly).

  23. My favourite destination to fly to is Lindos, Rhodes. It’s a little gem ? and we go there every year without fail x

  24. I’m nearly 30 and i’m yet to go on a plane! I’m determined to defeat my fear next year though and take the kids to Spain 🙂

  25. Would have to be New York! Love flying over the ocean and seeing small land down beneath the wings of the plane.

  26. My favourite destination to fly to is Cyprus. Mainly because my grandparents live there, and we love to go and visit them, plus Cyprus is beautiful. ?

  27. I’ve unfortunatley not been able to fly due to health complications however I would love to visit jamaica one day as half of my family are from there and there are many I have never been able to meet.

  28. I have never actually been on a plane – neither has my partner or our children. We have pledged as our 1st New Years Resolution to book a Hol for 2019….I want Florida (Disneyworld)- my partner thinks we should start off small….pfft!!!

  29. Flew to South Afric once with SA airways and it was the best flight i ever had comfy seats good food and excellent staff,

  30. I am petrified of flying but for some reason settle a lot better on long haul flights, think it’s because there are plenty of things to “do”like films etc.I have flown to Mexico before and I actually enjoyed that flight as we flew above a tropical storm and watching the sky light up all different colours was amazing.

  31. I have been on a proper holiday for the dirat time this year. We went to Spain, Costa Brava. We loved it and we want to go back next year 🙂

  32. Ive only been on a plane once so it would be to the canary islands although Ive always wanted to fly to New Zealand 🙂

  33. I love anywhere warm and sunny! Preferably with some cultural sights as I’m not fond of lazing on a beach. My husband is originally from India and I always love going there, so much to see and so varied depending on which region you are in.
