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. But I haven’t actually reviewed since being a Fisher-Price Mum last year but I have this to share now. The Fisher-Price Butterfly Dreams 3-in-1 Projection Mobile is beautiful. 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 …

Win Over £100 Worth of Prizes to Celebrate Our 2nd Blog Birthday

2014 is over! Gone. It seems to have really flown by. I’m not even going to reflect on my goals this year as we’ve had a pretty bad year for our personal life and I’m quite relieved that it’s over. We have had a few wonderful moments and in some senses 2014 was one of our best years. We welcomed …

“She revealed to us that she already knew what she was getting”

On Thursday we made the brave decision of taking a trip to Toys R Us. Exactly a week before Christmas I expected the place to be crammed with people and low on stock. I was wrong. Ok, granted it was busy but we were able to wander around at our leisure with P2 running about like an excited mess and P3 in …

I’m familiar with Dr Miriam Stoppard’s parenting books so we jumped at accepting the invitation to attend an interactive play class with herself and Galt Toys at The Kids Stuff Toys in Ashford.

Thankfully we’ve finished shopping and wrapping for the girls but I have put together a little gift guide for girls aged 4+ seeing as I have three princesses.

“Christmas is all wrapped up”

Last year P1 was very ungrateful for her birthday and Christmas presents. We’d forked out a lot of money to get her a Schleich farm house and various accessories – anyone who knows what I’m talking about will know that a tiny animal costs around £4. At 5 years old, children just don’t understand value. This year we vowed to …

So we’ve just received our last Nonabox of the three we’ve been reviewing. They’ve certainly got better with time! November’s Nonabox was packed with some amazing products.

Milkshake! Stars DVD Review & Competition

Milkshake starts at 6am every morning and is only on until 9am but houses some pretty awesome childhood favourites for me, like Mr Men, Thomas The Tank Engine and Fireman Sam to name a few. Both my girls really enjoy watching Milkshake as I think the shows are more catered for the younger viewers. On the 8th September 2014, Milkshake! …
