Bigjigs Review | Build-a-Bouquet & Watering Can

Our garden is currently undergoing a revamp, with new turf and new flowerbeds in which I have sowed a variety of flower seeds. Despite our recent downpours, the establishing plants and lawn still need a bit of a drink, so when we received the Twigz watering can I set the kids to work.

Green Toys and Twigz products

The bright green sturdy watering can includes a rose head for even distribution of water to lightly shower plants, which is ideal for some of our pots which don't like getting their leaves too wet. It provides a bit more control, again ideal for my youngest who at almost 2 is still a bit gung-ho rather than delicate with some of his movements!

The two handles make it easy for him to carry, although I don't fill it up with water as much as I would do for Lily (maximum volume is 1.5 litres). Cue strongman noises and grunts from Alexander, followed by "I did it!".

The Twigz watering can is available in a variety of colours and has an RRP of £10.99

Although the majority of our flowering plants are yet to bloom, both children feel a sense of involvement with their care, feeding and watering. In the meantime, the Green Toys Build-a-Bouquet allows them to create their own unique floral arrangements - we certainly won't find the flowers they create in our own garden that is for sure!

The Build-a-Bouquet includes a handy cardboard storage box to keep all the pieces together.

The BPA free, non-toxic flowers, leaves and stems can be stacked in a variety of ways to achieve many different floral arrangements. The twenty four brightly coloured flowers have been based on lilies, daisies and petunias, and naturally Lily gravitated towards her namesake flower.

Creating his own flower
This toy set not only promotes creativity but also helps develop younger children's fine motor skills and dexterity.

We particularly like the fact that unlike some of our own real plants, these ones ready to be played with all year round and they are a conversation starter; Lily and Alexander can identify parts of the plant - budding botantists!
