LeapFrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket Review

Did you know that July was National Picnic Month? I didn’t until recently either. Although I know I’m a bit late to celebrate it properly picnics are something you can enjoy no matter the weather as they don’t always have to be outside. One of Erin’s newest toys is the LeapFrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket. The set comes as a very happy looking pink plastic picnic basket. In the picture above the basket is tipped on its side and you can see that there are some buttons and switches. One button controls on/ off and the volume while another

Imaginative Play With JoJo Maman Bebe

Earlier this week I wrote a post about keeping toddlers busy on a rainy day and I mentioned some fabulous wooden toys from JoJo Maman Bebe. Today, I want to tell you a little bit more about them. First up we have the picnic basket set. What I love the most about this set is the attention to detail and the little things that make it so special. The set comes in an actual picnic basket which I think is really lovely. The basked it lined with gingham material and you also get a picnic blanket included. Inside the picnic

5 Rainy Day Activities For A Toddler

Living in the UK means we don’t always get the best summers. Sometimes, we can get rain for days on end and that generally means being stuck in doors. I don’t drive so I tend not to venture out too far with Erin when the weather is miserable. It’s hard to find things to do indoors to keep toddlers busy though. I’ve come up with a list of 5 rainy day activities for a toddler! Teddy Bear’s Picnic Having a teddy bear’s picnic is always a fun idea whatever the weather. Erin has loads of teddies but she doesn’t really

Toy Storage Dreams

Yesterday I posted a review of the toy storage we bought from Next in the sale. As much as I love it, we STILL need more storage. Erin has some larger toys downstairs that are just on the side and she also has a room full of toys as well. Christmas and her birthday was insane and even after trying to clear out some old toys, we have them everywhere. I guess this is life now. Anyway, I thought I’d put together a post about toy storage that would make our lives loads easier! Tidy Books Bookcase – £154.50 (Tidy

Erin’s First Toy: The Fox

It wasn’t long after I found out I was pregnant that I bought Erin’s first toy. I know you’re not really supposed to buy anything until you have your 12 week scan just to be safe but I couldn’t help myself. As my mum’s surname is Fox I have a bit of a thing about them. I decorated Erin’s nursery in a woodland theme so I could have foxes in there. As you have probably guessed, Erin’s first toy was a fox! I bought this particular fox in my favourite shop in Cromer, Upstairs, Downstairs. I actually can’t go in

Product review: HappyCalc Maths Puzzle

When I was growing up, I was never very good at maths. In fact, I was terrible at it. So much so that I had to have a tutor for 6 weeks before my GCSE exam. I never would have passed without him! When FunComet got in touch to tell me about the HappyCalc Space Puzzle, I was intrigued. What got me about this puzzle was that it is supposed to be a fun way of learning maths, from 1-10. Obviously, Erin is only 10 months old so she did not do this puzzle with me. I got to test it
