Learning Resources Birds In A Nest Sorting Set Review

Now that Erin goes to nursery 3 days a week and is learning so much we want to be able to encourage that at home. While we will still be doing loads of fun, crafty type play, and running around like lunatics, I want to help Erin to learn at home and Learning Resources is the company to help us with that! One of the sets we have been trying out recently is the Birds In A Nest Sorting Set. The Birds In A Nest Sorting Set comes with 36 super brightly coloured pieces. You get six coloured bowls and 30 birds

Orchard Toys One Dog, Ten Frogs Review

Erin is becoming more and more interested in learning in different ways but most of all, she loves to play games and we are huge fans of Orchard Toys. Erin already has a few different games but we were recently sent One Dog, Ten Frogs which is a numbers and pairs game. One Dog, Ten Frogs is aimed at children aged 3 and up and while Erin isn’t 3 until January, she is really doing well with learning numbers so I thought this would be a great choice for her at the moment. Inside the box you get 30 discs which are

Planning A Playdate With The Teletubbies

When it comes to playing with Erin sometimes I get really stuck for ideas, especially if we end up stuck indoors due to the unpredictable British weather. We tend to do the same things a lot of the time and we don’t have much variety. I think I can safely say the same for the times where John and Erin have time on their own too. Thankfully, Erin goes to nursery for 3 days a week and the variation she gets is so good for her. So, when I heard about the Teletubbies Playdate Pack I was excited to see

BRIO Classic Train Review

Erin has now been going to nursery for nearly half a year and since she started, she has come home liking all different ways of playing and different kinds of toys. She is so interested in how things work and pulling things apart and putting them back together again. Nursery, along with Thomas the Tank Engine and regular family trips has sparked Erin’s interest in trains. She loves to go on them and loves to look out for them when she knows we’re near the train station so what better than a toy train from BRIO. The BRIO Classic Train

Gund My Magical Light and Sound Animated Unicorn Soft Toy Review

It has really taken Erin quite some time to be into soft toys. I tried to get her to like them as a baby and she wasn’t having any of it so everything we bought her ended up on shelves in her bedroom or in a box. Over the past couple of months though Erin has really started showing more of an interest in certain things and watching shows like Shimmer and Shine have helped to introduce her to things like unicorns, which she now loves. We recent received the GUND My Magical Light and Sound Animated Unicorn Soft Toy and I

WOW Toys Activity Table Review

Finding Erin smaller toys to play with is really easy. Smaller toys can hold her attention for roughly 30-45 minutes maximum but a lot of them won’t last more than a couple of months at best. Erin is now at an age where how she plays can change quite quickly but it’s important to also find toys that she can grow up with as well. Recently we have been playing with the WOW Toys Activity Table and here’s what we thought. The activity doesn’t come assembled but it does only come in 5 pieces and a bag of fixings. John

WOW Toys Adventure Playmat Review

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

Erin’s First Day At Nursery

4th January was a pretty big day for our family. This was the day that Erin had her first day at nursery. Well, I guess it wasn’t her first real day as it was only the first of two settling in sessions and I didn’t actually leave her there but to me, it felt like the first day. I had been preparing for this day for months and months but I was never actually prepared for how I would feel about it. The day didn’t start well. Erin had a bit of a melt down about leaving the house and
