Can't say I'm wildly excited about the event itself, but a good amount of the merchandise from the Olympics is certainly impressing. Like these Lego Team GB Olympic mini-figures, which are up there with the best of it.
If you are still looking for a last minute gift for one of your kids how about this Children's Rocking Chair from PT design.
The chairs come in a range of colours but this very festive red and an equally appropriate green are still available.
The chairs are tough to deal with any heavy duty rocking, and sized at H56cm x W36cm. The size makes it suitable for slightly older kids or adults who can squeeze themselves on it to have a go. It costs a very reasonable £35.
We thought this was a new design, but we were mistaken - the Leka Trojan Horse is a Scandinavian midcentury classic.
Leka is a new Swedish company that produces children’s furniture and accessories from the award winning designs of Evy Lindqvist Westerberg and Torbjörn Örgren from the 1950s to the 1970s.
This is a Swedish classic from that era, a versatile wooden ride-on also doubles as a practical storage box with a drop down tail for hiding away your child’s favourite toys and books. Or simply leave it around your house as a talking point! Available online, it's a bargain at £79.
