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

Peppa Pig ‘My Floor Puzzle’ Review

Erin is a huge Peppa Pig fan and snorts like a pig as soon as it comes on television or she sees something with Peppa on it. Up until recently, Erin has never really done puzzles before. We have had plenty of shape sorters but nothing like a puzzle. To get Erin started we thought the Peppa Pig ‘My First Floor Puzzle’ from Ravensburger would be good. The puzzle costs around £10 and is suitable for children aged 2+. Being a puzzle for very young children there are only 16 pieces. I think that this is a really nice amount

Winter Boredom Busters For Toddlers & Giveaway

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! However, spending a few days in a row indoors with a nearly 2 year old means constantly having to think of fun and different things to do so they don’t get bored. Addo Play have some great winter boredom busters for toddlers we’ve been trying some of them out lately. Erin will soon be starting nursery and we’re

Peppa Pig Water Filled Muddy Puddle Review

Peppa Pig is one of the few television shows that Erin will happily watch and enjoy. She ‘oinks’ at the television when it comes on and it was one of the first things she really recognised. At times I feel like Paw Patrol and In The Night Garden taken over so when I saw the Peppa Pig Water Filled Muddy Puddle from Bladez Toyz, I fell in love a bit. That was just me, Erin hadn’t even seen it! Before the mat can be played with it takes a little bit of setting up. John set ours up and it was a

Sands Alive Starter Set Review

When we attended Blog On back in September we received a sample of Sands Alive and even before I let Erin play with it, I was a bit in love! We recently received one of the Sands Alive Starter Sets to review and I couldn’t wait to let Erin get stuck in! 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 was a little disappointed
