What We’ve Been Watching: May 2019

What We’ve Been Watching is a monthly feature where we talk about everything we’ve been watching over the past month. It might be something on Netflix, NOW TV, Sky or even just a DVD we’ve had for years but wanted to watch again.

Encouraging Inquisitive Minds With Tinpo

AD – This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  We’re not a family that limits screen time however, we do try to make sure Erin watched some educational shows and plays games that will help her learn. Erin is quite an active 3 year old and would happily run around like a lunatic all day but I personally think that children need downtime and if that means sitting and watching a cartoon, then I’m okay with that. Erin not only tends to get up quite early but she also comes from from nursery just wanting to sit

Let’s Go PJ Masks: New DVD Out Now

A little while ago you may remember us posting about the first ever PJ Masks DVD. Well, they’re back with a second DVD called Let’s Go PJ Masks. Erin absolutely loved watching the first DVD and she really took a shining to all of the characters. If you haven’t come across PJ Masks yet then here’s what it’s all about! By day, 6 year olds Connor, Amaya and Greg go to school like everyone else. But when something goes awry in the city, these special kids, filled with curiosity and a sense of justice get ready for their mission – but they have

Celebrity Big Brother Shows like Big Brother are certainly not for everybody and I don’t actually watch it most years. However, every year I watch the opening show to see who is going in the ‘celebrity’ version. This year I thought the line up looked fantastic and there

PJ Masks 1st Ever DVD: Time To Be A Hero

It’s no secret that Erin is quite picky about the children’s television that she watches. Up until a few weeks ago she would only watch one or two things but we’ve recently introduced her to PJ Masks. The first ever PJ Masks DVD, Time To Be A Hero, is about to be released tomorrow, 30th October and just in time for Halloween! Our DVD was delivered in a super shiny, hero like, blue envelope and Erin squealed a bit when she went to pick it as soon as it came through the door! She didn’t even know what was in it

Peppa Pig Interactive Play Mat Review

Erin is only really into a couple of children’s television shows. She’s a massive fan of Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig but not much else to be honest. I try and try to get her to like something else but she’s not having any of it. We recently received the Peppa Pig Interactive Play Mat to review and was so excited when she saw it. The play mat retails for roughly £19.99 and comes ready to be used, which is pretty perfect when you have a 22 month old who is trying to rip the box open in your hands. The
