A Mud Kitchen Makeover For Under £20

For Erin’s 4th birthday we bought her a mud kitchen. She’s getting to an age now where she’s got everything that we could think of as a ‘big’ present but we wanted to get something that she would get a lot of use out of. Of course, the beginning of the year meant that the mud kitchen didn’t get played with all that much, thanks to the bad weather. There was really nothing wrong with the mud kitchen to start with. We bought it new from Studio and it was really lovely. It came with some accessories and I was

Creating A Fun Outdoor Play Area At Home

AD | Includes gifted item As a non-driving family we’re not always able to make a quick decision to go for a day out in the woods, the beach or to an amazing National Trust property. A lot of great places are only accessibly by car which sadly rules them out for us. However, we love being outdoors and Erin loves nothing more to play outside. It’s so important for children to learn about things such as nature, to get some fresh air and to exercise outside so we have done our best to create an exciting play area at

Dantoy Bio-Toy Pretend Play Dinner Set Review

AD | Includes gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *)  When it comes to playing, we do a lot of role play. Erin loves to pretend and she could spend hours playing this way and with it now being the summer holidays, we will be outside a lot. We look for toys that are going to last through a lot of play, being thrown around and also, that won’t break or fade quickly. We were recently sent the Dantoy Bio-Toy Pretend Play Dinner Set*, which comes from a new brand to us. What’s different about this toy, and the Bio-Toy

Wickey MultiFlyer DeLuxe Climbing Frame Review

AD | Includes gifted item Our back garden has always been somewhere that we spend a lot of time, especially since Erin was born. Sometimes it can be hard to get out and go somewhere but we also don’t want to be stuck indoors. Now that Erin is 4, getting on for 5, we have been planning to make the back garden more child friendly and fun. Although we have had smaller things for Erin to play with, nothing was enough to make her want to stay outside for any real length of time. What we really needed was a

Unravel Lots Of Surprises With Ravel Tales

AD | Contains gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *) Erin is a huge fan of collectable toys and we’ve recently discovered something really quite different; Ravel Tales. Inside each box you will find a brightly coloured ball of yarn, ready and waiting to be unravelled by the person who finds it. Erin was so excited to unravel the ball, and to see what she might find inside. The rainbow coloured yarn is really very long and being only small, Erin found herself getting quite tangled up in it all but she thought it was so much fun. Hiding

Adding To Our Magformers Collection

AD | Gifted item with affiliate links marked with * It wasn’t all that long ago that Erin discovered Magformers for the first time. She’s such an imaginative child and really loves to put things together so Magformers was an instant hit. Since then we have reviewed Milo’s Mansion, which is a really cute set where you can build a house for a dog. It was really different from the first set we got as it gave Erin something specific to build (although you can build it in different ways) but Erin still wanted to build something bigger. Our newest set is

Harry Potter Magical Capsules Review

AD | Gifted item We have a few big Harry Potter fans in our house. John read the books when they first came out, my Mum has read the books more than once and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was the first film I think I remember Erin being interested in. We have multiple sets of the books with various covers, we have the DVDs and we have Harry Potter Lego. Erin even has a Harry Potter costume. So, when we found out about Harry Potter Magical Capsules I couldn’t wait to see what they were all about. Discover the

Creating A World Of Fun With Smoby

AD | Gifted items We were lucky that Erin got to go back to nursery for around 6 weeks and it honestly did her the world of good. Now though we’re coming up to the summer holidays and as we’re still not going for as many days out we have to make the most of our time at home. I’ve realised that it’s worth investing in your outdoor area, should you have one, because it can be turned into such a fun and exciting place for children. Smoby Funny Slide When it comes to garden toys a staple piece is
