Listography – top 5 toys

October 30, 2011

Kate Takes 5 is doing a special listography this week. She is asking parent bloggers to nominate their top 5 toys, and will compile a top 10 list of all our top 5s.

In the Minibreak Mummy household, our top five toys of all time are:

Playmobil family camper

Duplo Woody from Toy Story

Mini Micro scooter

Wheely Bug

Thomas and Friends Take-n-Play set


I’ve always loved Playmobil ever since my mum got me a hospital ‘playpeople’ set from Mothercare in the 1970s. I particularly like the Playmobil Family Camper*, as it is the closest thing to a dolls house we have!

Lego Duplo

Amazing stuff. We like building towers and castles, plus there are lovely ‘Toy Story’ and ‘Cars’ sets.

Mini Micro scooter

A recent purchase this. Easy to steer by leaning. Much, much better than the scooter I had when I was a child.


Again very easy to steer and get around on. We’ve had this Wheelybug Ladybird* for a couple of years now and it still gets lots of use.

Thomas and Friends Take-n-Play sets

I’ve already written about one of these playsets being the best travel toy ever. We never go anywhere without a toy train or three and this range provides a very portable way of having lots of combinations of trains and track to play with.

      Thanks Kate.

      Very pleased to be able to join in. Was worried this linky might be closed before I got my act together.

      Looking forward to seeing your top 10 when it is compiled.
