Past Times Review

We were recently sent some items by Past Times to review. One set of marmite eggcups, a marmite apron and an insect study box.

We took the insect study box out that afternoon. The boy was keen to look at stones and leaves. We found lots of things we wanted to look more closely at, but very few insects (I think it was too cold). To be fair, if we had found a spider, I have no idea how we would have got it into the viewing part as I certainly wouldn't pick one up! We have inspected many different things now, including a comic relief red nose!

The apron is great. It fits well and is the first apron I have ever had! I usually just end up a bit messy when I bake! I love the colours, they are very vibrant, which you need in our dark kitchen!

I also love the egg cups, although the fact that they are different colours have caused arguments between the children! They will always want the one the other has anyway though.

What they say

Insect Study Box

Study insects and minibeasts up close with this clever device. The perfect gift for any young nature lover.

Marmite set of 4 egg cups

Love it or hate it? Marmite is the iconic British food that has a nation divided. This set of egg cups features assorted colour schemes and funky pop art styling. They are porcelain, dishwasher safe and, microwave safe.

Marmite apron

The Marmite jar is an iconic part of our heritage. This fun and funky apron brings the classic design to life. It is 100% cotton and machine washable.

Good points
Fantastic bright colours on the egg cups and apron.
Egg cups are easy for toddlers to use, although they do get hot.
The insect study box is great for inspecting insects or natural things from different perspectives.

Bad points
The mirror in the insect study box came loose the first time we took it out. It is easy to fix though, just unscrew it, get some glue and stick it back on!

Would I buy them?
Yes. I would buy all of these products. In spite of the fact that the mirror came loose in the insect box (it was probably because it was in my bag). It is a great item to encourage exploration and taking a closer look at nature.
