Ah, school holidays. While it’s always great spending time as a family, it can be tough to stop children from getting bored as the days roll on. That’s why we’ve picked out some fantastic products to help keep that boredom at bay, so you can focus on just enjoying quality time together.
Enjoy some of the best games around with a brand new games console. This Nintendo Switch is home to some amazing games, with plenty of awesome experiences available for the whole family. And the best bit? When you want to catch up on the soaps or the football, the kids can remove the console from the dock and play in handheld mode, freeing up the TV for you. So everyone wins!
If it’s TV and movies that your kids love, then it’s worth considering a Now TV box. It’s super-simple to setup, and gives you access to loads of Smart TV apps. And with the Now TV service, you can buy a Cinema or Kids pass for a month to enjoy all their favourites on demand. Just watch out for those infectious cartoon theme songs running round your head all day!
So what about when you want to limit screen time? Well, why not pick up a food mixer and get them baking some tasty treats? This Kenwood Chef Elite makes light work of beating, mixing and whisking, so you can just relax and let them enjoy the more fun jobs, like decorating (and eating) the cakes you make together.
Kids love asking questions, they love silly jokes and they love loud cheesy songs. So why not pick up a smart speaker that can be an encyclopaedia, comedian and a DJ in one. This Google Home Mini speaker can make sure they’re never bored, while giving you five minutes to enjoy a break and a brew before they get back to pestering you with requests instead.
Even with all these awesome gadgets, we know that school holidays can be a little bit tiring for parents. By the time you’ve settled the little ones in bed, you’ve earned a chilled glass of vino to help you unwind. This Smeg built-in wine cooler will keep your favourite tipples at the perfect temperature, so you can enjoy a moment to yourselves before the next day of hectic fun.
