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

Exploring The Great Outdoors With Chipmunk Foortwear

I’m not sure how I managed it but Erin is such an outdoorsy kind of girl. She hates being stuck indoors and I think she would be out in the garden even if it was chucking it down with rain and especially if it was full of snow. Erin really loves it when the weather finally turns nice as I always like to have the back door open and we can go outside to play as much as she likes. We also go to the park a lot more which she is a big fan of. One of the problems

WOW Toys Pippa’s Princess Carriage Review

When it comes to toys Erin really loves playsets that come with little figures. She has a fantastic imagination and can spend hours getting the people to do different things and I love to watch her play. While she got a few sets for Christmas, I like to rotate her toys so she doesn’t get bored of them quickly. Recently we were sent the WOW Toys Pippa’s Princess Carriage for Erin to try! The set includes horse, carriage and two figures and costs £22.99. Pippa’s Princess Carriage is suitable for children aged 1 ½ – 5 years. Pippa’s Princess Carriage is a

BRIO Wooden Doll Pram Review

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. There are two different positions that

Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tot Dolls and Bedtime Accessories Review

When it comes to toys for Erin, dolls are something I don’t really know a lot about. She is nearly 2 and she’s changing all the time, meaning what she wants to play with has also changed. Erin had recently showed a bit of interest in a doll while we were out shopping so when the opportunity to review the new Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tot Dolls and a playset arose, I had to say yes! Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tot Dolls are realistic, miniature baby dolls that you can hold in the palm of your hand. The first collection of Tinsy Winsy

Gaining Confidence With The ToddleBike2

There are a few things I never learned to do as a child that I think are probably pretty standard. Something I never learned how to do was ride a bike. I think my uncle tried at some point but I have no idea what happened. This is something I really want Erin to learn how to do and we’re starting her quite young! Recently, she has been trying out the ToddleBike2! If you don’t know what a toddlebike is, just like I didn’t before we got one here is a little information: The ToddleBike2 is a pre-balance bike, meaning

Four Seasons Sorter By Sri Toys

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

Sylvanian Families Treehouse Review

Not too long ago I wrote about Erin’s bedroom and the theme that went with it. We’ve had some lovely comments about her room and some of the items in it, especially the Sylvanian Families Treehouse. The treehouse is super simple to put together. It comes in a few different pieces but it took me less than 5 minutes. Some of the pieces, such as the trees clip on very tightly and they’re really not going to move but others, like the slide and the house itself come off quite easily. Being only 2, Erin doesn’t really do gentle play
