Anisnap Watches – a first watch for Monkey

Anisnap Watches

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.

We're going on an adventure

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. I think N needs one of these. He’s currently using a ‘beach safety’ snap and pretending it’s a watch. He’s obsessed, so I had a watch down for his Christmas present. But a snap would be much more practical

  2. Now I like the look of this. I agree about the watch straps of conventional watches being too big and I’m not terribly keen on many of the watches I see on the high street that are aimed at children. But this looks ideal.

  3. This looks fantastic, I love how easy it is for children to put on themselves, and it’s not too babyish. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  4. We don’t have an anisnap watch, but we have a watch that has the same snap around wrist feature. It’s great for popping on and off without having to worry about undoing the buckle etc.

  5. My 2 bous have about 4 kids watches between them (all received as presents) and they almost never bother wearing them. Wonder if they would be more interested in one like this that is simple to put on #Triedtested

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
