Avid readers of my blog (ha ha who am I kidding) may remember back in the spring we were sent a couple of Baby Born toys for the girls to review. Now, I can’t lie and tell you honestly that all the freebie toys become much loved parts of the muddling through family, BUT I have to report that Trixie and Noah (as they are now known) were THE TOYS of 2018 in our household. more “New Threads for Trixie and Noah @zapfcreationuk Baby Born dolls clothes review and Baby Born Soft touch doll #Giveaway”
When it comes to toys, I firmly believe that a globe is an absolute must have for every child at some point in their early life.

You may recall a month or so ago, PetPlan made one little girls dreams come true when they created Tig’s dream pet; Nina the Snow Eagle.

The combination of half term and Halloween is the perfect excuse to get the kids in the kitchen having some messy fun with flour and icing.

Fidget spinners. Possibly one of the strangest obsessions of the current day. And most annoying.
I should have known better when we found a sparkly pink metallic fidget spinner alone on the floor on a recent day out. Having tried to locate its owner, it ended up in my pocket and by default back at our home. Where it proceeded to cause no end of arguments, tears and physical fights over whose fidget spinner it would become. more “Fingerlings Fidget spinners and Fairy Doors.”
There’s no denying blogging can bring you many things. A feeling of solidarity. A new skill. A hobby to be proud of. A sense of community.
Today, blogging brought me a moment of relief in the shape of two little wooden toys for my kids to try out. A parcel delivered at the precise moment I was wondering how on earth I was going to entertain them for the next 4.5 hours until Daddy gets home. more “Wood and wonder: Toy review”
