Summertime!

It’s that time of year again when all the children are off school for the summer! For us here at Toyday it means a very busy time for both Looe and Totnes shops!

Many of the people who visit the shops this time of year our on holiday, so it’s important the children are kept entertained on their visit!

Below are Toyday's Top 5 toys for this summer for an idea of how to keep the children occupied rain or shine!

1. Propeller Sky Flyers - Release the propellers into the sky!

2. Small Bucket and Spade Set - Children can make sand castles on the beach with this bucket and spade setl
3 . Rope Quoits - Easy to transport and great fun indoors or out!

4. Bubble Fun Play Set - Comes with various accessories to do fun things with the bubble mixture.

5.Mini Flower Press - Fits into a rucksack or pocket. Perfect for pressing a flower whilst out and aboutl

Looe Carnival Week

Well this week is Looe Carnival week and as I write this there are crowds of holiday makers in the town enjoying the festivities that have been put on for their entertainment and the weather has been perfect. So far this week there has been a vintage and classic transport display with boot sale and a Bird of Prey show.
The traditional floral dance was on Monday with the carnival queen choosing in the evening although I believe it is now called Royalty Choosing which I presume to mean in these days of equality it is now open to boys and girls!
On the beach yesterday was the sand modelling competition and thankfully the weather held dry for all the budding sculptors.
On the Seafront tonight is the Polperro Fisherman's Choir who are always a resounding success and whenever I hear them it does send a shiver down my spine.


Tomorrow, Friday, on East Looe beach from 2pm will be an afternoon of children's entertainment with a Punch and Judy show, and surely we have all booed at Mr Punch, balloon modelling and some magical fun.
Of course the highlight of any carnival week has to be the Grand Carnival Procession on Saturday which this year will be judged at 6pm at Hannafore, and at 7pm lead by St Pinnock and Liskeard Silver Band will make it way to East Looe with majorettes, floats and walkers.
So whether you are in Looe on holiday or planning to come down for any of the festivities then do come early, get some fish and chips and sit by the river, but beware the seagulls. Last week I lost a sandwich and a scone on the same day to one and if I see him again he will be in trouble.
If you rather have a more relaxing meal then enjoy one of the many cafes here and please remember to give generously to the collections for the Lions Club of Looe Charities.

Alessia 's work experience

Hello!

I'm Alessia, I'm from Italy, I'm eighteen years old and I want to talk a little bit about my work experience.
This is my first time in England, I've never been here before and this is also my first job!
I arrived two weeks ago, I was really scared about the work and about the owners of the shop that I hadn't met before. When I arrived in the shop the owners Adam and Emily received me very well, they were very friendly and kind. I like them because they were always smiling and they didn't get angry when I made mistakes. I got on very well with them and I enjoyed very much to stay in their shop because they had a very beautiful shop (I like a lot wood toys) and I spoke with a lot of people. It was a very interesting and important experience for me!
Thank you very much Adam and Emily for this unforgettable experience in your shop!
I hope to come to Totnes another time !
Thanks for everything!

Alessia
