Encouraging Creativity With My Little World

AD | Gifted During the week when Erin is at nursery I know that she is doing lots of fun and creative things with her friends and teachers and I don’t have to worry about screen time. However, now that we’re in the middle of the summer holidays I am constantly looking for new things to do with Erin that don’t include sitting and watching videos on YouTube too often. While I have no problem with Erin using her tablet for some down time I obviously don’t like her being on it all of the

Helping In The Garden With The Casdon Flymo

AD | Gifted  It was only a couple of months ago now that Erin really got to watch John mowing the lawn in our back garden for the first time. I think we’ve either kept her inside before now or done it while she was having a nap. Erin was absolutely fascinated though and she really wanted to help. Of course, it was a bit dangerous for her so I knew she would love the Casdon Flymo that we were sent recently. The Casdon Flymo comes in three really easy to put together parts, the

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

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.

Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker Review

Disclaimer: We received this item for the purpose of this review. All opinions are our own.  When I think back to my own childhood one of the most memorable toys was a Mr. Frosty. I remember wanting one for so long and being incredibly excited when I finally got one. When I first heard about the Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker it brought back such good memories and although not the same toy, I knew it would be something Erin and I could enjoy playing with together. The box comes with a Mr. Frosty and penguin 3D mould, chocolate

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

With Christmas coming up very quickly, so

Peppa’s Alphaphonics Campervan Review

Erin is now at an age where she is really picking up words quickly and easily so I’m trying to help her as much as I can. Sometimes though, I get a bit stuck on what to teach her and more so, how to teach her. I had had my eye on Peppa’s Alphaphonics Campervan for a little while now and we have been lucky enough to be able to review it.   The alphaphonics board is presented in a really bright and colourful campervan design, with the pig family sat inside.
