Wind-up toys, the bane of my existence

A lovely person gave BabyBoy and BabyGirl a wind-up TV, the kind that you wind up and then a picture moves across the ‘screen’. They’ve have been around for years and years. I was thrilled when I saw it as I had one as a child and loved it.

BabyBoy and BabyGirl also love it. There is a problem however – they are not yet able to wind it up themselves, so they call for Multimummy to do it again and again and again and again… Each winding only lasts about a minute. This is not conducive to getting dinner on the table.

So as Christmas approaches a note to all toy-shoppers out there: I don’t recommend buying such a toy for any child who can’t wind it themselves. Mummy will not thank you.
