Father’s Day – building that connection!

Father’s Day celebrated on the third Sunday of June (YES, this coming Sunday!!) is all about celebrating DADS and the influence of fathers in society.  Many of us will be thinking about the perfect gift to give the man of the house this week…whether he would think ‘socks rock’ or ‘power tools are cool’! Or you could show your Dad how you dote on him this Sunday with our fantastic construction set – Connecta Straws

Connecta Straws contain over 200 pieces of flexible plastic straw, with wheels and connectors, so Dad and the kids can build for hours, constructing and reconstructing endless models and designs – anything from a helicopter to a giant spider!

What would you and your Dad build?

Just for a bit of fun we have put together a list of famous fathers, to see whether they would get the Top Dad or Bad Dad vote from you:

  1. J.R.R. Tolkien
  2. Homer Simpson
  3. Albert Einstein
  4. King Lear
  5. Jonathan Ross
  6. Darth Vader
  7. David Beckham
  8. Peter Andre
  9. Prince Charles
  10. Barack Obama

Do keep a look-out on the Galt Toys website for our Father’s Day creativity pack, containing three fab card designs – for the kids to make.  We will be putting the FREE downloads up in the site’s Activity Zone later this week!

Let’s hear it for the DADS…
