Sooty and Sweep are Here!

Posted on September 12, 2014 by Lynette - | 0 Comments

Do we have any Sooty and Sweep fans out there? Of course we do! Sooty and Sweep have fans of all ages so we were delighted when we became the master toy partner for The Sooty Show.  We took our Sooty and Sweep toys to the London Toy Fair in London earlier this year. They caused a huge amount of excitement and we were even joined by Richard Cadell who was surrounded by the press very quickly. It was such a great experience!

We’ve had lots of enquiries about our Sooty and Sweep collection, especially about when they will be available in the Golden Bear Toys store. Well, that time has arrived and both Sooty and Sweep are now available to buy directly from us, as well as our retail partners.

Sooty Hand Puppet - £9.99

The Sooty hand puppet is made from super soft fabric and he gives the best hugs! This is a great toy that helps children explore their imagination with their best buddy Sooty.

Sweep Hand Puppet £9.99

Sweep is as soft and loveable as Sooty but he comes with a built in squeak!

Now it’s your turn, who’s your favourite? Sooty or Sweep?

Helping Children Settle into the School Routine

Posted on September 05, 2014 by Lynette - | 0 Comments

The new school year has arrived and many children have left nursery school and begun their journey at their new primary school. Many adults find the whole transition period more stressful than their children. But even those children that are enjoying the new environment can have problems with tiredness and the simple realisation that school takes place for most of the day, five times a week.  

We thought we would share a few tips to help the next few weeks run smoothly for you both:

  • Rest is vital. It’s all too easy to get caught up in the whole after school clubs routine and hobbies but children need time to relax and unwind. You’ll need to enforce the bedtime routine and provide your child with plenty of down time after school and at weekends too.
  • Be organised and help your child by setting a good example. Set out the school uniform, sort out the book bag and prepare the lunch boxes too. By doing so your child will be aware of the fact that school is happening again the next day plus the mornings aren’t as hectic.
  • Encourage communication. Don’t fill your child’s head up with stories that might be worrying to them, such as bullying and don’t force friendships to happen. Let your child get settled in but let them know that you are there if they do have any concerns. Set aside some time each day to have a private catch up.
  • Try not to show your concerns, be encouraging and positive. If you’re nervous or worried about the interactions in the playground your child is more likely to pick up on them and feel nervous themselves. If you do have any concerns speak to your child’s teacher, they are there to help.
