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

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
