Celebrating an early Birthday with Smyths!

Azlan is going to turn four in the coming weeks. FOUR. Feels like he was born just yesterday. All moms say that, I know. So now that he is older, he appreciates events and we love going all out for him. Whether its Eid, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, his smile while celebrating is all that we live for.
Not that forced smile. We dont live for that smile at all.
Anyway, So Smyths is having a huge campaign with their new catalouge and they asked us to pop down to the store and buy something. So we obviously had to make that trip (an hour away by bus just by the way). Everytime we buy something from Smyths, we usually order online and my husband picks it up from the store. So it was actually the first time for both of us in the ginormous Smyths store. Azlan went ballistic. Its not that we dont buy him toys, but the freedom to choose anything made something click inside and he started running down the aisles like some kid on crack. 


While, on our way to the store, we skimmed through the catalouge and Azlan decided that he wanted the Lion Guard toy set. If you look at the catalouge, it is like the genie from Aladin! You name it, and its right there. The staff of the store was amazingly helpful! I absolutely loved the lady who helped us around. Wish I had caught her name!

Anyway, after lugging around the basket, he decided he wanted to buy something else too. We also ended up getting a 3 in 1 easel, which I am way more excited about. We also got two HUGE books (that were a pain to lug around the buses). The book selection over there is amazing as well. We got the First Question and Answer Book and a 50 stories book.

I told him that until I didnt get a good picture, I wont let him open his presents - Hence the forced smiles!

Azlan had a fabulous time at the Smyths store and wanted to stay a little bit longer but I wanted some food. So Subway won haha! There is so much variety in store that I couldnt believe my eyes. If your child is into superheroes, they have the dopest collection of everything Avengers and they even have an amazing collection of bicycles and what not! So pop down to your nearest store and I am sure you will end up with an empty pocket but a smile that lights up the sky!

  2. We were so excited when Smyths opened up a store near us. It's a pity we don't have the money to go there every week, but as you can imagine with three young ones it's a real strain on the pocket. I hope Azlan is happy with his haul.

  3. We don’t have lots of good stores nearby and have to travel to London for that, a 1.5-2 hour trip from my house but luckily I’ve got the Smyths toy shop just within 5 mins drive.

  4. Ahh, conveniently there's a Smyths next door to where my husband works - which was PERFECT for when we were desperate to buy a SmarTrike the day before Pickle's first birthday. So convenient - I don't envy you the bus journey!
