We have 2 cats at home, Jinx and Kirin, and Erin is so good with them both, always making sure they are okay and giving them a stroke to make them happy. However, Erin is always asking us for a dog for her to look after (not happening) so sometimes we like her to play with toys where we can replicate that

Erin’s Grandma lives with us and they have been really busy playing a super fun game; Windy Knickers*. Before you can start playing Windy Knickers there is a bit of set up required. There are 16 playing pieces that need stickers adding to them, a dice that needs stickers adding, Granny needs clothes and the washing line needs putting together and batteries putting in. Once you’re ready the play, the rules are quite simple. The youngest player goes first and rolls
AD | Includes gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *) There was once a time when Erin didn’t like soft toys. I tried, and tried, and tried to get her to be interested in them but it wasn’t to be. Then, one day it seemed like she woke up and her bedroom was covered in them. Erin has gone from someone who didn’t like soft toys at all to someone who has to sleep with at least 4 in her bed every night. I knew immediately that she would be a fan of the Sunny Bunnies*. We were sent one

This month we have been playing Bananagrams.* Bananagrams comes really nicely packaged in a banana! As I’m sure you can imagine, Erin thought this was great and we thought it was a fun way to store the game. Inside you will find 144 letter tiles and a small set

I’m not sure I know many (near) 5 year olds that don’t love a blind bag or a surprise toy. BABY born Surprise are now on series 4 and Erin couldn’t wait to see what she got. Each of the BABY born Surprise Series 4* babies come in a beautiful floral blind bag, with a sparkly pink organza bag as somewhere to store each one. The packaging is

We had a brand new carpet put into our living room/ dining room at the beginning of the year so we mostly only do real painting in the garden now. Luckily, Little Brian Paint Sticks are a really great alternative and then offer a mess free way for children to play and be creative. Paint Sticks dry really fast and they can be used on lots of

If you have a little witch or wizard heading back to Hogwarts this week, you might be wondering if you have everything they might need. With the Harry Potter franchise being so big now, and as popular as it is, you can expect to find a lot of merchandise. For the back to school season there are some really fun items available and we
AD | Contains gifted items and affiliate links (marked with *) I’m really excited to be part of the Asmodee Blogger Board Game Club. Since March we have been playing more and more games at home. This might be with Erin or it might be on an evening with just us adults but we’ve really enjoyed trying some new things and most importantly, having fun. One of the games that I chose for us was Dobble: The Gruffalo*. No matter what we’re playing Erin wants to be involved so I thought it was important to get something aimed at her age.
