Bigjigs Guinness World Record and Charity Event

If you don't know who Bigjigs are you are totally missing out. They make some lovely wooden toys for babies and young children, but also they make a fantastic wooden train set that isn't super expensive! Now some of you who follow my Twitter feed will know Petit Boy is a huge fan of trains (specially a certain blue tank engine) and for his 2nd birthday got the beginning of his own collection of wooden train track and trains. Some of the pieces are Bigjigs and I must say I'm impressed as they are just as well built as Biro track and connect to all types of other brand tracks too. I've found Biro tracks don't fit the Thomas wooden tracks very easily for some reason, however Bigjigs track fits both Biro and Thomas wooden tracks without me spending ages trying to hammer them together (or pry them apart!). So there you go that's a bit about Bigjigs - mostly about their rail products but that is mostly why I'm writing this blog post.

Bigjigs Toys are proud to announce their intentions to attempt to break The Guinness World Record™ attempt for the Longest Wooden Toy Train Track! Not only that but they are asking if you could sponsor a track for £1 and the money will go towards the charity Demelza Hospice Care for Children who care for life limited children and their families, offering respite breaks, end of life care and bereavement support. So not only will you be part of a Record Breaking event but also you will be helping a charity as well.
The monumental record attempt will be held at Chatham Dockyard on the 26th July 2012 and is FREE for the public to come and see. You will get to see them using over 10,000 pieces of track to reach the target of 2012 metres. Spectators are invited along to cheer on the Bigjigs Toys team from 10am onwards and hope to complete the track by 4pm. There will also be competitions, play area's and other bits and bobs throughout the day!

I think that's covered everything... oh did I mention that PEPPA PIG WILL ALSO BE THERE?! My son has only just found Peppa Pig on Channel 5's Milkshake show and he loves Peppa as much as he loves Thomas, I'm pretty sure every toddler enjoys Peppa Pig in some fashion so seriously you have no excuse not to go or even help by donating even just £1 by going on their JustGiving page.
