Miles Kelly Convertible Fire Engine Playmat Book Review & Giveaway

Miles Kelly Convertible Fire Engine Playmat Book Review & Giveaway

If you haven’t come across the Miles Kelly “Convertible” books collection, you’re really missing out!

We first came across them through a blog post done by a fellow blogger, Donna over at The London Mum. I purchased a tractor one for Arjun last Christmas and he loved it!
The book both doubles up as a story and can be cleverly assembled in to a toddler sized tractor which provides hours of fun. There are various ones available and they are so much fun and are great for the imagination.

When I was contacted to review a new collection they were launching, I was so excited! I’m even more excited as you guys also have the chance to win one!!

The new “convertible playmat” collection features a story which can then be unraveled in to a playmat and comes with lots of stand up figurines, buildings and props for make believe play. Something that Arjun loves! I’m really big on role play and kids using their imagination – the possibilities at that tender age are endless!

We were sent a bundle and chose the Fire Engine book to review – it was a great way to introduce him to fire safety and since then he’s really aware of fire and danger though probably not to the extent I wish he could be.


The book comes with instructions on how to assemble to building (it’s really easy!) and the characters and also provides descriptions of some of the figurines. The way in which the book folds up also means there’s a little slot where the figurines can be stored safely which is great especially in our house where the small bits and pieces have the tendency to go missing!

The books are hardback and the figures are also printed on thick card. The figures are double sided and come with a slitting stand for them to stand up. The figures themselves aren’t very sturdy and we found the stand fell out quite easily which meant they were easily knocked over – it wasn’t something that bothered Arjun though!

Arjun loved practising his “neenoh” sounds and it also helped build up his vocabulary by going through different animals, sounds, buildings and props.

More than reading the story itself, Arjun was interested in playing with the playmat and creating different scenarios.

The playmat also has a section that folds up in to a building – each internal wall has a different real life scene e.g. A fire station, a house, a gym. Again, great for using imagination and endless scenarios.

At £14.99 (currently on offer for £11!), these offer hours of imaginative fun and we absolutely love them! They make great gifts and are great value for money.
