My children are at an age where they want whatever the other has. This means that for Christmas this year they are getting the same or very similar presents to avoid arguments.
They also both love being like us at the moment and have asked Santa for Henry and Hetty Hoover toys because they want to hoover (I kid you not)!
Their latest obsession is telling the time (hey, I’m not complaining, like the hoovering, this is a good thing), and they both fight over one of my old watches.
When I saw the Furry Friends watches in their bright and bold colours specifically made for children I knew the kids would love them.
The Furry Time website explains that
“On a warm sunny day in July 2016, the Furry Friends monsters took to their spaceship and left their much loved home, planet Wackadoo. Their destination was planet Earth… these fun loving monsters were brought to Earth for the enjoyment of all children, making everyday Children’s products much more bright and exciting”.
The watches are available in several colours, each with a different character – Blinky, Chomp, Ditzy, Kooky, Spike and Zany.
As anticipated, when the watches came through the post the children were over the moon with their new time telling devices. I was happy that the watches come in a range of colours as it means the children won’t mix theirs up and argue over whose is whose. Cameron went for the orange one (Spike) and Carly chose pink (Blinky).
As a parent I was impressed with the watches as they were sized accurately for delicate little wrists and so didn’t feel like they would slip off at any moment. They are also water resistant to 1ATM (basically splash proof) which is brilliant with young children likely to forget they are wearing the watch when washing hands.
Since putting their watches on, the children haven’t stopped commenting on them. They both agreed their favourite thing is the funny little monster faces.
Cameron is at an age where he can really start learning to tell the time and he is excited to try and work it out and check with us if he’s got it right. Carly just loves being ‘grown up’ and wearing a watch like adults do.
The watches seem really durable and the plastic is strong and hardwearing (an absolute must with my kids as they are rather heavy handed with their possessions). The watch strap is made of a very flexible softer plastic, which means that the kids find them comfortable to wear and are unlikely to take them off or loosen them and end up losing them.
I would recommend them to parents with children who are learning to tell the time, or who like my kids just want to be like us adults (someone needs to tell them it’s not all it’s cracked up to be).

Furry Time sent us these watches for the purpose of review, however all views are my own (and of course the kids’)
