10 of the most popular childhood dream jobs...and the toys to go with them!

Think back to when you were growing up, what did you want to be when you were older?
We asked some of our Toys for a Pound staff, and got a plethora of answers, such as a policeman, astronaut and footballer!
So this is why we've put together a blog on 10 of the most popular childhood dream jobs, and 10 fantastic toys to go with them!

1. Fireman
Being a fireman is cool, courageous and they help SO many people, no wonder so many of us wanted to be one growing up! Every fireman needs their fire engine, so why not grab your little hero the FANTASTIC Atco Building Bricks Fire Engine 55pc Set?!?
2. Astronaut
I'm 100% sure at one point or another, ALL of our little ones have said they want to be an astronaut, right? I mean who doesn't like the idea of flying through space in a rocket?! Our Space Explorer Electronic Blaster, which comes with dazzling lights and sounds will make any kid feel like they're in another dimension!
3. Race Car Driver
Can you remember the first time you saw a car, and couldn't wait till you were old and could drive one yourself? Can you also remember the first time you saw a car race and were mesmerised by just how fast they could go?! Well why test the speed of these AMAZE Mickey and Friends Hot Wheels and try to collect all 8 iconic Disney characters?!
4. Doctor
One of the most popular dream jobs for little ones is to become a doctor, because helping people and saving lives is possibly the most AWESOME job you can do! We think the Peppa Pig Mini Medical Set will be PERFECT for any aspiring doctor, and it even comes with a handy case for when they're finished playing!
5. Musician
We all remember being given our first musical instrument and thinking we were going to be the next superstar of the music industry!! A lot of us learnt the basics of the flute in school, much to our parents' ears despair, so why not treat your little pop-star to our Musical Flute 3PK?! (Sorry ears...)
6. Athlete
Kids will see today's athletes either in person on on TV, and be in awe of what they can do. Why not get your little one into the swing of things, quite literally, with our Tennis Balls 3PK, and who knows, they could become the next Andy Murray or Roger Federer!!
7. Policeman
Fighting crime, catching bad guys, and zooming around in a police car, no wonder being a policeman is one of the most popular childhood dream jobs! We think any aspiring policeman would LOVE our Police Racing Cars 4PK, allowing them to race with 3 friends too!!
8. Pilot
Being a pilot is one of the coolest jobs out there - as long as you're okay with flying!! You're able to travel all over the world and see so much, so no wonder it's such a popular childhood dream job! Your child can let their imagination run wild with our EPIC Super Plane with light and sound!
9. Teacher
Teaching being a dream job of many kids is likely due to the fact all of our childhoods were defined by our FAVE teachers, and the fact teachers helped us so much, something we want to do to others! With our AWESOME Kids Create Reward Chart with Stickers & Pen, your child can become a teacher themselves!!
10. Superhero
We know technically you can't apply for a job on Indeed as a superhero, but EVERY single child wants to be one, and that's just a fact. The Marvel Avengers superheroes are some of the best around, so we think any aspiring superhero would love our Marvel Avengers Mini Plush Cushions!
Whatever it is your child wants to do when they grow up, we KNOW they'll be fantastic at it thanks to all you AWESOME parents!!
