Thomas The Tank Engine – Take ‘N’ Play Daring Dragon Drop Review!

Not so long ago we went as a family to the premiere of the latest Thomas The Tank Engine movie in Leicester Square. Filled with tales of buried treasure, old pirates and danger behind every turn it was right up Jimmy’s street and we had a fabulous time enjoying Thomas The Tank Engine – Sodor’s Legend Of The Lost Treasure for the first time – I’m sure we will be watching it again at some point! Florence liked it too but […]

#FierceFitness With Bratz

A few week’s ago I was invited along to an event celebrating the re-launch of Bratz dolls in the UK. I have to admit we never actually realised they’d gone anywhere as Florence played wth hers often but at the launch party it was clear to see that this time, they were back and meant business! I got to see loads of the new ranges which are on sale in Argos right now and even have a play. One of […]

Clangers The Music Boat – Review!

Since the Clangers re-hit our screens we have become firm fans and luck old us have been part of a reviewing team for the new toy range accompanying the series by Character. A while back we reviewed a soft toy and a selection of the mini figures which we thought were brilliant and more recently we were sent the new Clangers Musical Boat which we have totally fallen in love with as well! The boat is a solid structure with a […]

Mummy’s Little Helper!

When Florence was about 2 years old we were at a play group when she started playing with an iron and an ironing board. I was astounded that she knew what to do because children usually learn this sort of mimicking behaviour from home but the thing is, I so very rarely iron that I can barely remember how to do it myself! My tiny little girl knowing exactly what to do with one made me giggle although she’d probably seen […]

Art You Grew Up With!

I don’t think it will come as any surprise to hear that my young family are rather fond of the pig they call Peppa. We, like most households with small children I’m sure, have been fans of the cartoon ever since we saw it first. We’ve had Peppa related days out (thanks Paulton’s Park, your Peppa Pig World is a firm favourite) and one time even stayed in a Peppa Pig themed hotel room for the night, we’ve had birthday […]

Going Back To School!

It’s hard to believe that this time last week we were still sunning ourselves on the Algarve with endless sunshine, fun and family time. Today has hit me with a bump. It’s back to school day for us and no forgetting. How come when you’ve been away, it doesn’t matter what the distance is that you’ve travelled or how long you’ve holidayed for, the minute you get home it almost feels like you’ve never even been anywhere in the first […]

My Friend Bing!

Jimmy really enjoys the gentle pre-school programme Bing which teaches children in a really sweet way, how to respond to situations such as when they might need to be kind, thoughtful, use their imagination or how to care for someone else. It’s basically a soft introduction into empathy, feelings and life in general and along with Flop, who is Bing’s guardian looking after him when he faces a problem, it essentially deals with morals of the world in a way that tiny people […]

Interplay Glitter Tattoos!

Whenever we see a glitter tattoo station when we’re out and about, Florence and Jimmy flock to it. I don’t generally mind paying for them to have one as they seem to last an incredibly long time, often to the point of me having to remove them with baby oil, and usually I think they’re quite good value for around £3 each. My children would always choose a glitter tattoo over face painting at fetes and parties because not only […]
