Just Call It Christmas – You Don’t Have To Be A Christian for ‘Christ’s’ Sake!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! Christmas is nearly here and we are all excited in my house. Excited for the time spent with family, the presents, the food… Everything really. We’re not at all religious if I’m honest. I mean I put Christian down on forms but none of us go to church and I’m not entirely sure what, if anything, we believe in. Some might say we are hypocritical to celebrate when we don’t do it solely for […]

Donkey Watch – Donkey Does the Nativity!

Christmas is nearly here and it’s time for the Rocknrollerbaby nativity! Just for a bit of fun we have made our very own little scene using none other than Le Donk. Well, he is a Donkey so he had to be the ‘little donkey’ in our recreation of the scene! Cast: Le Donk – Little Donkey Ruth/Mummy – Mary Jonny/Daddy – Joseph Jimmy – Baby Jesus Florence – King 1 (her choice) Bollo Cat – Sheep (errant from picture as […]

Count Down To Christmas – HappyLand Circus!

I talk about HappyLand from The Early Learning Centre on my blog all the time because I absolutely love it! It encourages ‘small world play’ which is a vital part of children’s development and the toys are all such super quality and built fantastically well! As far as I’m concerned you can’t have too many HappyLand characters and houses and with the range being as extensive as it is there is something to interest every personality! Whether you like whimsical mice in a tea-pot, […]

Be A Busy Mummy With Bizziebaby!

Ever heard of Bizziebaby? I’m sure if you’re a Mum and you look for reviews before you buy anything then you absolutely will have done but if you haven’t yet been introduced may I do the honours now? Way before I started blogging and reviewing products for my blog I liked the idea of being a road tester for baby products and a friend of mine introduced me to this company, Bizziebaby, who for a five-pound yearly membership would send me products to review […]

Count Down To Christmas – ELC Dress-UP!

Florence is a massive fan of dressing up and has a collection of outfits which she plays with loads. They’re fab toys because they don’t take up much room when folded and in the toy box and provide hours of entertainment requiring them to use their imagination! I’m not overly keen on cheapy ones which fall apart, it seems like a false economy to me; instead I prefer to use ones from The Early Learning Centre because they’re still not […]

Mothercare is App-y!

I love Mothercare and the Early Learning Centre, did you know they’re part of the same company? They’re brands you can trust and you know that the products are of the highest quality while, I don’t think, amazingly expensive. When I was little Mothercare was the only place on the high street parents could get children’s clothes and the fact that it’s stood the test of time is tantamount to them really. Many shops fold when other stores of a similar nature open […]

Cup and Teether Please mOmma!

Jimmy’s been weaning and with it learning to drink from a cup. I tried him with a cup from mOmma, an Italian brand, and to begin with wasn’t entirely sure about it but quickly came round. So, first of all I thought the No Spill Cup (which I have without handles) might be a little difficult for Jimmy to grip. I held it for him and fed him so that he didn’t have to attempt picking it up himself and was pleased to […]

Aint No Christmas Party Like An Asda Christmas Party!

Living in the capital City you might be forgiven for thinking there’s not much sense of community. I live in East London and I think people in Norfolk, where I am from, assume it’s an insular life and no one says hello to anyone else. Ok, so it’s true on the tube people don’t speak but where I live and there couldn’t be a greater sense of community. For families in particular, it’s a great place to live with much […]

Count Down To Christmas – Sassy Piano Rattle!

Well, if you don’t already know by now, I’m a big fan Sassy toys. They’re very well made, easy for tiny hands to hold, have interesting features and the colours (which include black and white widely) are extremely stimulating for babies. Jimmy is 7 months old and has been using various Sassy toys through his development so far with great pleasure. I think he’s fond of the style they have running through their range and because they make toys for […]

Count Down To Christmas – Sassy Rescue Vehicle Set!

Bath toys have quickly become one of Jimmy’s favourite types of toys and he looks forward to having his bath so much we have just had to get him some lovely things to keep him entertained while he’s in the tub! He’s gone from having a quick in and out dip to sitting and playing with his sister for ages and it’s delightful to see! Florence has some toys of course but I can’t say she’s wild keen on sharing […]
