Whether you've bought the ORIGINAL playPROMPTS for you and your little one or you've bought them as a gift...here's a list of the resources suggested for the activities in the pack.

Please be aware, the whole idea behind the playPROMPTS packs is that you are inspired to play with what you already have at home. If you don't have an item on the list, before you race to the shops, have a little look at what you do have at home because more often than not, you will have a suitable alternative without needing to spend a penny.

Take this list as a guide and not a requirement!
