Christmas seemed to be a bombardment of gifts and exciting new toys. We had wrapping and boxes everywhere. On P1s birthday we received a package from Pipsy Koala. Inside included their new calendar, foam bath animals and a splash mat.
I’m a bit of a lover of calendars and diaries. I have to shamefully admit that I don’t think I’ve ever stuck to using one, only my iPhone. The Pipsy Koala 2014 Calendar is A3 in size and has plenty of room to write those important dates in. There are 12 pages each with a different Pipsy photo and each has a different product from the Pipsy Koala range. I have to admit that I didn’t like the idea of paying £9.99 for a calendar that has advertisement on each page, maybe because I have never seen anything like this before. However, the pictures are lovely and P1 has looked through the calendar over and over again so it’s a big hit in this house!
The Foam Bath Animals are a huge success!! P1 took them to my Mums last weekend and I requested that they take lots of photos because we don’t actually have a bath at our house. P2 “baths” in a plastic box! The animals are very simple and made from foam. They are just one colour which makes them very cute. P1 loved playing with them in the bath. Since they’ve come back home I’ve been finding an animal all over the house, a kangaroo in the bathroom, a koala in the kitchen and I found a crocodile in P2s cot the other night. P2 likes to chew on them. For £5.99 I think they are definitely a worthwhile and fun little addition to anyones bathroom.
The Splash Mat is just £7.99 and covers an area of 90cm X 90cm just perfect for under our high chair! When it arrived the girls were addicted to it, it didn’t go under the highchair for at least a day because they kept wanting to crawl over it and look at Pipsy the Koala. P2 was utterly amused and kept talking to it. When it eventually made it’s way under the highchair it fitted perfectly with ample enough space to catch sloppy food and prevent me from mopping stains from our wooden floor. The mat is made from non-toxic PVC and wipes clean. I’ve even been able to hoover it nicely with our brush part of the hoover. I love it, it’s such a cute little addition to our home.
