Bubbles Backpack

Review: Bubbles the Elephant Backpack from Playzeez

Lilah’s whole nursery is elephant themed, so when we were invited to review an animal character backpack from Playzeez, it just had to be Bubbles the Elephant.

Review: Canal Toys Craze Sensations

Open the pot, discover the exciting compound and then mix it with the textured decorations and let the fun begin! Listen and feel that AMSR …
