Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Where’s Spot?

Spot the Dog

Introducing children to reading at an early age helps to give them a real passion for books when they get older.

When you read to babies, your baby hears you using many different emotions and expressive sounds which helps to support social and emotional development.

Reading books and talking to babies helps them to build language skills by copying sounds, recognising pictures, and learning words and as they get older and more vocal, it will encourage your baby to look, point, touch, and answer questions and both Isaac and Eliza love reading to Lilah when she visits.

2020 is the 40th anniversary of the much loved Spot the Dog and to celebrate, we were sent Where’s Spot? to review, a classic bestseller containing simple text and colourful pictures.

In Spot’s first adventure children can join in the search for the mischievous puppy by lifting the flaps on every page to see where he is hiding.

To celebrate this very special anniversary, Rainbow Designs have launched the ‘Fun with Spot’ preschool toy range, with plush toys, activity toys and comforters.

We were sent the Large Spot Soft Toy which super soft and cuddly.  He is 33cm and perfect for encouraging imaginative play, or for just being a loyal companion for little ones to cuddle up with at story time. This soft toy pup has his characteristic brown spot on each side and brown tip on his tail and stitched eyes, making him suitable from birth.

    No way! Spot is not 40!!!!! That’s so crazy. I loved reading about spot and his adventures as a child. My little one likes him too.

    Awww so much love for Spot! He is the same age as me – I read him as a chid then read him to my daughter too. He has a special place in my heart. Love the plush!

  6. It definitely helps having the older children. My baby automatically gets exposed to all their favourite stories.
