Dyson Cord Free

The Dyson Dilemma – Cord-free vs Powerball which will win your child’s heart?

For those children who love role-play at home and helping out with the housework, Casdon has some fun options for little hands to use that really are just like the real thing!

Review: Baby Annabell Hospital

In light of the current lockdown situation, I have found that the kids are taking part in many more role play activities in the home. Back in February, both Eliza and Sebastian were hospitalised for the first time and being in that situation was both unfamiliar and stressful for them, especially Sebby and they both still talk about their experience. We were invited to review the Baby Annabell Hospital, with Baby Alexander and I thought it would be the perfect way to help them act out their experiences. The Baby Annabell Hospital is really easy to set up, straight from …

Explore and play with BABY born this Spring

The cottage took Hubby around half an hour …

Red Star Wigwam

Red Star Wigwam from GLTC Review

I don’t know about you but my children adore having a den to play in. We did have a gorgeous Princess Castle Tent, but 3 years of being battered by my children and the ones I look after and with one child that attempted to climb through the window and ripped it, we needed a new one. I have been looking at teepee’s for a while as they are perfect for both boys and girls and can be set up as a den in the garden, or as a reading corner in a room for when the weather turns cooler. Great …
