TTS Messy Play Dispensers – GIVEAWAY!

Frequent visitors to the blog will know that I am a big fan of a dispenser – particularly when it comes to supporting children in their independent play and investigation.

A few years ago I posted about a self service dough station that I had created, where the use of a cereal dispenser meant that the children could create their own dough without the support of an adult.

I know lots of you tried it with varying degrees of success. Although mine did a brilliant job, it turns out that all dispensers are not the same! Some that you tried didn’t keep the ingredients where they should be and they just ran out of the hole at the bottom! Some of your dispensers also broke quite quickly after use.

I mentioned this to the team at TTS and they have done some research into dispensers and found one that is really robust and keeps its contents inside until someone turns the handle!

They have also found some containers that are great for storing and pouring – inside or out!

I do like to road test a product or an idea before I share it with you, so I sent a set of dispensers to the brilliant Friars Primary School in Salford to let some real Early Years children get their hands on them…

Many thanks to Mrs Toole for the photographs and the Nursery and Reception children for being our product testers!

The dispensers are lovely, but they are also significantly more expensive than the plastic ones I bough on eBay and the copper tea urn I found at a car boot sale!

The problem with the cheap dispensers and the urn is that they don’t last and you end up paying out again to replace them. If you were going to use them a lot, you might save money in the long term by paying a bit more when you first buy.

For today though – you could win yourself a set of 3!
