Although Erin goes to nursery for 3 days a week we still have 4 days together at home. Since starting nursery back in January the way that Erin likes to play has changed. Her imagination is fantastic and she really loves to be creative. At the same time, she likes to learn something new so I’m always on the look out for new and exciting things for her to play with. Feeling uninspired by the regular places I shop at, I decided to give Wicked Uncle a try. Wicked Uncle is a bit different to other toy shops because of
Now that Erin is at nursery 3 days a week I am finding that she plays quite differently than she used to. I love how going to nursery has made Erin so much more imaginative and creative but this has also meant having to learn how to play with her in new ways. We were recently sent the WOW Toys Adventure Playmat and I couldn’t wait to show Erin. The playmat is really quite large so you need a decent sized clear space for it. Luckily though, the WOW Toys Adventure Playmat comes rolled up in a plastic case. Children’s toys can
We’re now at the end of November and it’s pretty cold outside now! Erin and I get stuck indoors a lot of the time due to not being able to drive; we don’t want to get soaked before we even get somewhere!

I had set up our Sands Alive set while Erin was asleep so that she would hopefully be excited to see something new when she woke up. This set comes with 450g of the super soft modelling sand and 5 mini moulds. Honestly, I
AD | Post contains gifted items Erin is now getting to an age where she has completely changed how she likes to play and the toys she likes to play with. While she still seems to like blocks and some more complicated shape sorters, she needs something that requires her to think a bit more and to use a bit more imagination. We were recently introduced to the BRIO Wooden Doll Pram and I know immediately that this was a toy for Erin. The Wooden Doll Pram comes boxed but not completely put together. The wooden handle needs attaching with the screws provided.
A shape sorter was one of the first toys that I can remember Erin playing with that she got really excited about! We always love getting new toys to try and our most recent was the Four Seasons Sorter from Sri Toys We’re big fans of wooden toys in this house. So many toys for toddlers are plastic and can end up looking a bit cheap at times. This shape sorter comes in a lovely, natural wooden box with a removable lid. The 20 different pieces that go inside though are painted and really bright and colourful. There are 5
