Back in February I visited Spring Fair at the NEC in Birmingham. One range that really caught my eye was the Anisnap Watches from Aniworld. They offer fun, animal themed watches specifically for children aged 3 years and over. I was thrilled when they recently asked if Monkey would like to try one of the watches from their range.
There are all sorts of animal faces in the Anisnap Watches range, even dinosaurs, but really there could only be one option for my son couldn’t there! Yep Monkey’s first watch had to be a Monkey.
Monkey’s been fascinated with the time for a while now and I’ve searched high and low for a watch that would fit him. Of course, all the ones with conventional straps are just way too big for a nearly 5 year old’s wrist.
The Anisnap Watches come with silicon bands rather than the normal straps, which are much easier for younger children to wear.
The child puts the band over their wrist and it snaps into place according to the size of your child’s wrist. In fact, I have really small wrists and I can wear this watch too.
It’s been a big hit with my Monkey, he loves the fact that he can put the watch on himself and we have to compare the time on his watch with mine, and with the kitchen clock. He just loves it.
I was a little concerned that the watch might fall off easily, but so far so good. He doesn’t wear it to school (I’m not even sure if watches are allowed tbh) but as soon as he’s home and changed, the watch is in place.
The actual face of the watch can be removed from the animal surround when the battery needs changing and the hands glow in the dark.
The Anisnap Watches retail for £10.00 and a list of stockists can be found on the Aniworld website. If you like the look of the watches, there are also wall clocks for some of the range too.
Monkey loves his new watch, and his Mummy is rather pleased with it too.
