Toy Shopping With Wicked Uncle

AD | Gifted  Living in quite a small town we don’t have many options for buying things like toys and activities for Erin. We don’t have a toy shop apart from the section in the local supermarket and looking at certain shops online can be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. Unless you know what you’re looking for then it’s hard to search for things for inspiration. I certainly don’t always know what I want to buy for Erin and I also don’t know what other children her age might be playing with. We recently tried out a

Bunny’s Garden Game Review

AD | Gifted When I look for new games or toys for Erin I now try to look for something that she will not only have fun with but also something that will challenge her a little bit. Something we haven’t done a lot of is balancing so when we were offered Bunny’s Garden from Goula I was hoping it would be something Erin would enjoy. Inside the box you get a wooden bunny seesaw, 6 food pieces and 1 dice. The aim of the game is quite simple; each time the dice is rolled you add that coloured piece

FlipaZoo World Toy Review

AD | Collaborative post Erin is really into soft toys at the moment, which is quite surprising as it took her around 3 years to show any interest in them at all. However, with a lot of soft toys you are quite limited as to what you can do with them. We were recently introduced to FlipaZoo World though, who offer a range of toys with a bit of a difference. We received a selection of the new products which includes various sized plush animals as well as harder, mini sets. What makes FlipaZoo World different from other regular soft

Encouraging Creativity With My Little World

AD | Gifted During the week when Erin is at nursery I know that she is doing lots of fun and creative things with her friends and teachers and I don’t have to worry about screen time. However, now that we’re in the middle of the summer holidays I am constantly looking for new things to do with Erin that don’t include sitting and watching videos on YouTube too often. While I have no problem with Erin using her tablet for some down time I obviously don’t like her being on it all of the time. I was recently introduced

Helping In The Garden With The Casdon Flymo

AD | Gifted  It was only a couple of months ago now that Erin really got to watch John mowing the lawn in our back garden for the first time. I think we’ve either kept her inside before now or done it while she was having a nap. Erin was absolutely fascinated though and she really wanted to help. Of course, it was a bit dangerous for her so I knew she would love the Casdon Flymo that we were sent recently. The Casdon Flymo comes in three really easy to put together parts, the main mower part and two

Favourite Toys Of A 3 Year Old

AD | Contains some gifted items Last year I wrote a post all about the toys that Erin liked to play with when she was 2. I had a comment on that post recently asking if I had an updated post about what Erin likes to play with now that she’s 3 so I thought I’d better write one! Here are some of the toys she has been playing with this year and that seem to be her favourites: Colouring is always a winner in our house. Erin has had a decent collection of colouring books since she was probably

Peppa Pig’s Big Red Car Review

AD | Gifted item Ever since Erin first saw it on TV she has been mad about Peppa Pig. We have a few small toys from magazines etc. and a couple of small figures but Erin has been desperate for something a bit bigger for a while. We were recently offered Peppa Pig’s Big Red Car to review and I knew that Erin would love it. Peppa Pig’s Big Red Car comes with the red family car, Peppa Pig and Mummy Pig figures, picnic hamper, picnic blanket with a bottle, 2 plates of food and a BBQ. The set requires

Baby Shark Let’s Go Hunt And Sound Puzzle Review

AD | Gifted items Before Baby Shark had become as popular as it is now I remember Erin watching it very early on. It was one of the first things we found that she liked on YouTube when we first started to let her watch some videos. She watched it over and over and over again, just like the millions of other children have done now around the world. We’re some time on now from watching the song for the very first time but Erin still loves Baby Shark! Let’s Go Hunt Fishing Game One of Erin’s favourite games to
