When we were in Co-op a while ago we saw that they had a big display of fruit and veggie stuffed toys and were, immediately, intrigued. The lady on the till explained the concept to us and we duly started hoarding stickers. You are awarded a sticker per £5 that you spend at the Co-op and once you get 20 you can buy one of the Goodness Gang toys for £1 each rather than the £10 retail value that they hold.
I expected it to take us Ages to get enough for just one toy but that’s to the kindness and generosity of a whole load of people, Ethan’s lucky enough to have Three of the toys!
We have Charlie Carrot, Sally Strawberry and Ben Banana and they are very, very loved. They’re lovely, big, soft toys with sweet, happy faces and Ethan fell in love with each and every one of them when he got them.
Are these going to make your children suddenly want to eat loads of fruit and vegetables? Well I think that depends on the child. It’s hardly going to make the fussiest of eaters suddenly open to their sprouts and cabbage but I do think that it helps to form a much happier image of them and make them much more familiar with them.
And if not? Well it’s a fantastic offer to get some lovely stuffed toys for your children!
