@TheToadstoolUk competition entry!

This is our entry for The Toadstool and Wonderworld DKL's competition to win a Wonderworld Toy Kitchen and 2 runners up will receive a Wonderworld Penguin Rescuer Game or a Wonderworld Recycling Truck.

I had a lot of help (at least that's what they call shredding polystyrene onto the floor) from 3 of mine. Boys no3 and 4 got in the way, and boy no.1 made the penguins. Afterwards they all played icebergs for a very long time - my floor covered in tiny balls is testament to that!

It's my first ever video all by myself, so don't be too harsh (my other half hates it, so don't be as harsh as him).


The competition is open until Friday 1st May, so you still have time to enter any project or model or anything else on the theme of recycling, planting trees or helping to save the penguins! 

UPDATE - We won! How cool is that?! Another 25 or so years practice, and I'll be giving Nick Park a challenge...maybe....

  1. This is a brilliant video! Well done on doing it yourself. The Plus Plus sounds like a great toy - getting your biggest boy and the two smallest playing together is brilliant.

    1. Awww, thank you hon! EVERYONE loves the PlusPlus - they've all gone and got it out and started making things, and it's spent more time out on the table than in the box :)

  2. I love the music with it as well! Adds a bit to drama without being overboard :) I like how on the video you recognise penguins, however it is only when upclose that you see they are build in PlusPlus!

    1. I don't know what I did wrong with the music to start with, but we got there! As soon as they started making penguins with it I knew that they were perfect :D

    1. Thank you! Only problem is that he'll never edit video's for me again, so I'm going to have to do all of my own from now on... :D
