Whoopee Doo Review

AD | Contains gifted items and affiliate links (marked with *) With John now home more on weekends thanks to a promotion we find ourselves having a lot more family time than we did before. This means trying to find more and more activities to do with Erin at home and recently we’ve been playing more games. Last weekend we gave Whoopee Doo* a try!

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

Orchard Toys Let’s Go Lotto Review And Giveaway

AD | Gifted item Although we like to spend a lot of time outdoors, either in the back garden or at the park, sometimes we also really just need a day at home. Of course, the British weather also means that sometimes we’re stuck indoors because of the rain. We were recently sent Let’s Go Lotto from Orchard Toys and I had been keeping it to one side ready for a rainy day! Let’s Go Lotto is a travel themed game so it’s ideal for the run up to the summer holidays. We are actually going on holiday on a

Orchard Toys Sound Detectives Review

AD | We received this product free of charge. All opinions are our own.  One of my favourite activities to do with Erin is to play games. I love that we can play something fun while she gets to learn something at the same time. Orchard Toys have such a great range of games for children and we were kindly sent one of their newest releases; Sound Detectives; to try out!

Fun On The Go With Orchard Toys Mini Games

This year we have been away a few times and one of the hardest things about packing is figuring out what to take for Erin. Clothes and snacks are easy enough but some of her favourite toys are big, bulky and just not practical when we don’t drive. Orchard Toys have a range of 12 mini games, which are great for travelling or even as smaller gifts for children. We were sent 2 of the games to try out on a recent trip to London! Erin was full of energy on the train journey from Norwich to London so we

Fletter: A Word Game Review

AD | Gifted At the minute our house is where family stay. My sister is currently living with us so her fiance comes to stay roughly every other weekend and then my mum also comes to stay whenever she has a week off work. We are always looking for new games to play for when we have people over so when we heard about Fletter, we all wanted to give it a go. Fletter is suitable from age 8+ and is for 2- 4 players, meaning that most of the family can get involved. Erin is too young for this

Orchard Toys: Animal Shapes Review

Now that the weather is getting worse and we end up inside most of the day now, I’m always looking for new things to do with Erin. We’ve recently discovered Orchard Toys and they have such a great variety of activities for children starting at 18 months old. We were sent the Animal Shapes Game for Erin to try!  As soon as Erin saw the book she was excited! She already knows what a lot of animals are either by their real name or by what noise they make. She grabbed the box and started making pig noises and saying

Toddlers Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Erin will be 2 on New Year’s Day so we’re always on the look out for things to buy her either for Christmas or her birthday. Everything happening in the space of a week means quite a lot of planning on our part. With Erin getting presents so close to each other, I like to try to make what she gets varied and different and I think our Toddlers Christmas Gift Guide for 2017 reflects this! Erin got her first Duplo set for her birthday last year and she spends hours playing with it! This Pizzeria Set is adorable and comes
