My First JCB Range from Golden Bear.
Freddy is a proper lad when it comes to toy choices. I know all the gender neutral parenting arguments and he does have access to more stereotypically feminine toys, but what he really likes is trucks. His eyes light up at the sight of a digger, tractor, train or car. He likes to push them along, he studies their wheels, he bashes them against each other or whizzes them across the laminate floor.
When I attended the fabulous Christmas in July event earlier this month I was very excited by the Golden Bear Stand. Not only is this a fantastic toy company that is located in my home county of Shropshire, but it also had on display the most wonderful toys from their My First JCB range. The iconic brand has been beautifully characterized and brought to life in a collection of working vehicles, each with their own personality. I knew Freddy would adore them and I was delighted when Golden Bear agreed for him to test out My First Talking Joey JCB and Doug the Dump Truck.

I love the attention to detail and think that giving each vehicle its own personality adds to the play value. Freddy loved the friendly characters and enjoyed listening to their chatter!
The My First JCB Talking Joey and Doug retail at £9.99 which is excellent value. They can be purchased from good toy shops or buy online at Golden Bear Toys' website.
Golden Bear produce a whole host of other branded toys including Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom, Peppa Pig and an exciting range of mascots for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.
