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

Casdon Supermarket Till Review

AD | Gifted For quite some time now Erin has loved to play shops. I don’t know what got her so interested but she would happily make her own shop out of chairs and a blanket at any chance she gets. Erin has a great imagination and can create a shop in her head but I knew that she would prefer to have something real to play with. Casdon are a brand who specialise in role play style toys, some of which are replicas of actual products that are used around the house or from realistic situations. From experience, we

Casdon Toy Dyson Cord-Free Vacuum Cleaner Review

AD | Gifted item | Affiliate link Erin loves to get involved with everything that we have going on and that includes cleaning and doing certain chores around the house. When she finally stopped being scared of the vacuum cleaner she wanted to help. Obviously, this isn’t something Erin is able to do on her own so instead, she follows me around holding the cable to help me out. Now that Erin is 3, she wants to do even more though and isn’t happy with some of the things I tell her. She doesn’t believe me when I say something

Brik Buster Tower Toppling Game Review

Disclaimer: We received this item free of charge. All opinions are our own.  Erin really likes to do a whole range of activities and she is always looking for something new and exciting to play. If ever I say I have something new for her she jumps up immediately and can’t wait to see what it is. As soon as I saw the Brik Buster Tower Toppling Game I thought of Erin. For as long as I can remember she has been building towers, letting someone else build a tower and then knocking it down as soon as she gets the

BRIO My First Railway Battery Operated Train Set Review

Erin has had a bit of a love for trains for quite some time now. As we are a family who don’t drive, we rely on the train to get us around quite often and Erin absolutely loves a train journey, even if it is only for a couple of stops. Her love of trains isn’t just for the real ones though as she loves to play with toy sets as well. I couldn’t say yes quick enough when we were offered the opportunity to review the BRIO My First Railway Battery Operated Train Set. This set retails at around £44.95 and

Big Game Hunters Redwood Tower Playhouse Review

Last summer Erin was only 1 and a half but she developed a real love for being outdoors. We ended up spending most of the summer in the garden and she hardly ever wanted to come back inside. Since then I have been desperate to make the garden somewhere really special for her to play and the one big item I really wanted to get her was a playhouse. Now, a playhouse is a pretty big investment so after a lot of looking around we decided to go with the Redwood Tower Playhouse from Big Game Hunters. One of the

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
