Ever since I was a little girl I have loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It is truly one of those timeless classics that is almost 50 years old! The gremlin has the original book and we found a TV version to watch and some other stories by Eric Carle. She loved it when she was smaller. Apparently a copy of the book is sold somewhere every 30 seconds.
Little Piglet is following suit and we are so pleased when we were asked to showcase and review some amazing new products featuring The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
I’ll go though some of the fab things we have received. They will be brilliant for gift ideas, especially with Christmas being on its way!
Where is the Very Hungry Caterpillar Book?
I love the take on this book as it is perfect for smaller children and babies. It is a lift the flap book and you are trying to find the Hungry Caterpillar, finding other hiding creatures along the way. My little 1 year old loves it and enjoys lifting the flaps as I read to her. RRP £7.99 and available from all good bookshops.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Developmental Toy
This toy is suitable for babies from birth and is a brilliant, interactive Hungry Caterpillar. Developmental features include jingle bell rattle, squeak and crinkle sounds, textured beads and fabrics, and printed label tags. We wrapped this up for my daughter for her birthday! RRP £14.99 and is available from Amazon, Debenhams and Kiddicare.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Melamine Sectional Tray
I love this as my kids adore their “picky lunches”. It’s fab to section out their food and some kids are not so keen on food being mixed. This sectional tray is perfect for this and I love the design. RRP £8 and available from Portmeirion.
