Very Hungry Caterpillar - 45th Anniversary Gifts

This year marks the 45th anniversary of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and we've absolutely loved exploring all of the new books, games and accessories available with the Very Hungry Caterpillar theme. We've been trying out a few extra special items that are now available to buy, just in time for Christmas.

Very Hungry Caterpillar Chalks

My girls both LOVE to spend their weekends getting creative in our front room and Holly loves to try and mimic her big sister's beautiful drawings; these fun Chunky Strawberry Chalks are perfect for her small hands and make drawing on the chalkboard, or coloured card a really fun activity.

Very Hungry Caterpillar Rubber Stamps

Lara most enjoys rubber stamping (her Grandma will attest to that) and these Very Hungry Caterpillar rubber stamps have been used to adorn many a birthday card or picture over the past few weeks - they add a little personal touch.

At dinner time we have added to our collection of Very Hungry Caterpillar favourites with this brilliant Divided Plate which has become one of our most-used pieces of crockery for Holly. The tulip design is really beautiful and each compartment can be used to place different types of food; perfect for picnic foods, snacks or for foods which your child doesn't like to mix. Holly likes to use one corner for ketchup!

After dinner we take the girls upstairs for a bath and to brush their teeth.  The Very Hungry Caterpillar now also features in a new range of children's bathtime products such as Bubble Bath and Hand Soap which come in 250ml bottles.  The girls have their own bottle of VHC soap in the family bathroom but they even asked for a bottle of the soap to be kept in our en-suite as well!

And bedtimes wouldn't be bedtimes without the daily toothbrushing battle... or would they?  Holly's toothbrushing has been revolutionised since she was given this Very Hungry Caterpillar Toothbrush.  If I had known that a caterpillar toothbrush could make this much difference to her behaviour, I'd have bought one months ago!

Look out for beautiful Very Hungry Caterpillar pop-up books and soft baby books in the run up to Christmas - there are VHC anniversary gifts suitable for all ages!
