Buy online: Mungai Mirrors
Initial thoughts: I know a mirror isn’t traditionally a toy, but these safety mirrors from Mungai Mirrors come in a variety of shapes that spark all kinds of imaginative play – Flea chose a pirate mirror, which came complete with some small, skull-shaped mirrors. The whole shebang arrived securely packaged and covered with a safety film to protect the mirrors from scratches. They stuck to the wall really easily, and were up and done in two minutes flat.
We liked: I’ve been trying to encourage Flea to take more of an interest in her dress – making sure her school shirt collar is tucked down, and her tie is on the right way, for example. A mirror is a great way to encourage this. Flea, however, has other ideas and plays pirates with her mirrors, using the small skulls as pirate signals, flashing torches off them to make signals… Because they’re safety mirrors, there’s no risk in having them in a child’s room, which is perfect.
We weren’t keen: Be sure you choose the right spot for your mirrors because you can’t move them easily once they’ve been stuck to the wall. It’s fine, though, because under the window, six inches off the floor, is just where I’d put a mirror. Thanks for that, Flea.
Overall: These mirrors are a little smaller than I expected, so I’d advise parents to take measurements first to be sure of what you’re buying. Despite that, Flea loves her pirate mirrors and I’m a fan of anything that encourages her to dress herself appropriately in the mornings. Great value for money, and there are heaps of designs if your little one isn’t a pirate fan.
