My Friend Freddy Bear Review

At BritMums Live there is a chance to connect with brands face to face. It’s a fantastic way to really engage with someone especially when you recognise a PR team. But there was a stand that really caught my eye. A gigantic teddy and some friendly looking ladies. I approached and was introduced to My Friend Freddy Bear. I could …

Barbie Spin ‘N Ride Pups Review

The latest Barbie movie to hit our screens is Barbie and Her Sisters in The Great Puppy Adventure. Barbie stars as herself along side her sisters and their pet puppies. My girls love Barbie but they love animals, specifically dogs for P2, much more. Put these together and this film is set to be a huge hit with P1 and …

Siblings May 2015

I asked P1 today what she thought about being a sister and her answer was just one word, fun! I realised that through all the problems we’ve been having with them individually, as sister’s they do spend a lot of time laughing. I want the three of them to be absolute best friends but right at the moment P1 and …

Barbie Rainbow Makeover Hair Doll Review

We’ve been having a bit of a difficult week with P1. It always happens after she’s been away for a weekend so when we received the Barbie Rainbow Makeover Hair Doll I was debating about whether she really deserved it. I’m glad I did give in though as it was also the day that her first ever tooth fell out …

My Sunday Photo – 03/05/2015

We’ve had a pretty normal week this week. Nothing out of the ordinary except a play date for P1. This weekend, P1 and P2 have been with their Grandparents for their usual monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just P3. Previous months we have shipped P3 to my MiL for some child free time to have a meal …

Educational Toys at George Asda

Without being an expert I have grown to know that children learn best through play. This is what I have learnt over my six years of parenting and so when I was asked to review George at Asda’s educational toy range I was thrilled. We used to live right next door to an Asda but the toy section was pretty …

#BeSuper for Superhero Day with Barbie

 Today is National Superhero Day, a day to celebrate the heroes and heroines but the thing is, there aren’t many well known heroines! When I think of a lady superhero my first thoughts are Cat Woman but I don’t actually know much about her. We were asked to host a Princess Power Party. I don’t think in a million years …

Wicked Uncle Toy Shop Review

I know I love presents. Hubby isn’t going to deny the fact he loves presents too. My children are quite partial to presents too. Heck, I’ll stretch to saying everybody loves presents. But one thing I hate doing is buying them, especially for people outside my household and males too. Wicked Uncle was created for people like me needing new, …

AmiGami Craft Party

To make P1s Easter Holiday that little bit more special we were sent some pretty amazing AmiGami sets so that she could host her own craft party with up to 10 of her friends. I was really excited to see her reaction as she’s been practically begging us for her own set for ages thanks to the TV adverts. AmiGami were …

Toys R Us Toyologist – Barbie Malibu House Review

We were invited to join the Toys R Us team of Official Toyologists and the girls were given the task of testing out the Barbie Malibu House. It arrived whilst P1 was at school and the box was absolutely huge! P2 was really excited when we opened the box and was grabbing bits here and there. It wasn’t the easiest …

Fisher-Price Butterfly Dreams 3-in-1 Projection Cot Mobile Review

Regular readers will know that I’m being sponsored by Fisher-Price this year for BritMums Live, which of course I’m super excited about.

On the face of things, it just looks like a …

10 Ways to Entertain Kids on a Road Trip

P1 has always been really good on car journeys, she’d fall asleep pretty instantly or she sits quietly listening to the radio and singing. However, P2 is growing completely differently and I miss the easy journeys we used to have. P2 gets very agitated and bored being in the car for a long amount of time. Party Bags & Supplies …

“I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls”

It occurred to me today that I absolutely hate going to soft play with my girls. I’ve always thought of soft play as being a place that you can sort of relax and know that your children won’t hurt themselves too much thanks to the soft play equipment. When P2 was born, I went to our local soft play once …
