Muffin Tin Swap Package

on September 11, 2009
I meant to post this nearly two weeks ago – the 28th – but didn’t get round to uploading the photos and then forgot about it! Oops!

We were very excited to receive our Swap Package from Heather on Tuesday. Heather and her two lovely girls put a lot of thought into it and Froglet was thrilled with all the little individual parcels – I wish I had thought of doing that with ours! Thank you so much Heather!

Everything was wrapped in red or blue tissue paper – Froglets favourite colours. He insisted on taking everything out of its box or packaging so he “could feel” the paper cases, pinwheels (from our wishlist, yay!) and picks. Seemed like a strange request to me, but maybe he’s more tactile than I’d thought. He enjoyed arranging the picks in a little wooden pot my sister got us from Romania, and stacking all the different shapes of muffin tin. We now have enough muffin tins to last a lifetime! His favourite bit was the muffin-puzzle-cake set, which he wanted to use immediately but I managed to convince him to just have a Muffin Tin lunch instead (see below). I love the puzzle cake idea too and am looking forward to trying it out. Other than that, my favourite item is the pack of cute swirly-shaped picks that can hold a label:

The size of the package made me realise just how much more expensive things are over here (or cheaper in the States if you prefer). Just the one star-shaped silicon tin would have used up our whole budget, I’ve only seen that type in the specialist shop in Luzern. Switzerland doesn’t do budget shops, or at least our bit of it doesn’t. I think the French-speaking part is perhaps more that way inclined. Next time we’re involved in a swap I shall definitely arrange a special trip to the UK to visit all the pound shops over there instead!
