Dantoy Bio-Toy Pretend Play Dinner Set Review

AD | Includes gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *)  When it comes to playing, we do a lot of role play. Erin loves to pretend and she could spend hours playing this way and with it now being the summer holidays, we will be outside a lot. We look for toys that are going to last through a lot of play, being thrown around and also, that won’t break or fade quickly. We were recently sent the Dantoy Bio-Toy Pretend Play Dinner Set*, which comes from a new brand to us. What’s different about this toy, and the Bio-Toy

Wickey MultiFlyer DeLuxe Climbing Frame Review

AD | Includes gifted item Our back garden has always been somewhere that we spend a lot of time, especially since Erin was born. Sometimes it can be hard to get out and go somewhere but we also don’t want to be stuck indoors. Now that Erin is 4, getting on for 5, we have been planning to make the back garden more child friendly and fun. Although we have had smaller things for Erin to play with, nothing was enough to make her want to stay outside for any real length of time. What we really needed was a

Unravel Lots Of Surprises With Ravel Tales

AD | Contains gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *) Erin is a huge fan of collectable toys and we’ve recently discovered something really quite different; Ravel Tales. Inside each box you will find a brightly coloured ball of yarn, ready and waiting to be unravelled by the person who finds it. Erin was so excited to unravel the ball, and to see what she might find inside. The rainbow coloured yarn is really very long and being only small, Erin found herself getting quite tangled up in it all but she thought it was so much fun. Hiding

Harry Potter Magical Capsules Review

AD | Gifted item We have a few big Harry Potter fans in our house. John read the books when they first came out, my Mum has read the books more than once and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was the first film I think I remember Erin being interested in. We have multiple sets of the books with various covers, we have the DVDs and we have Harry Potter Lego. Erin even has a Harry Potter costume. So, when we found out about Harry Potter Magical Capsules I couldn’t wait to see what they were all about. Discover the

Creating A World Of Fun With Smoby

AD | Gifted items We were lucky that Erin got to go back to nursery for around 6 weeks and it honestly did her the world of good. Now though we’re coming up to the summer holidays and as we’re still not going for as many days out we have to make the most of our time at home. I’ve realised that it’s worth investing in your outdoor area, should you have one, because it can be turned into such a fun and exciting place for children. Smoby Funny Slide When it comes to garden toys a staple piece is

Magformers Milo’s Mansion Set Review

AD | Gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *) Earlier this year Erin discovered Magformers for the first time. It was unlike anything she had ever played with before but she took to it really quickly. The ‘My First Play Set’ was a great place to start and for Erin to learn what she could and couldn’t do with the pieces. Magformers* kindly sent Erin a couple of new sets to try out and one of them was Milo’s Mansion Set*. Milo’s Mansion Set is part of the 2019 miniworld series which also includes Minibot the robot chef, Max the

Turning Garbage Into Fun With Re, Cycle, Me

AD | Includes gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *)  Erin loves a craft, and we spend a lot of time doing this every single week. Buying craft kits, or even just various craft items, can mean being left with lots of plastic packaging or bits that you don’t use. We’ve recently been introduced to some great products, called Re, Cycle, Me. These are craft sets that aim to turn garbage into things such as art, games or even a princesses for a party! These sets come with a bit of a difference though. While you get most of

Magicube World Building Set Review

AD | Post contains gifted items and affiliate links marked with * Erin is due to start Reception in September but like a lot of children, she has had a large chunk of time this year where she wasn’t at nursery. Homeschooling didn’t come easy to us and I think thanks to Erin attending a Montessori nursery, she wasn’t such a fan of sitting and doing worksheets. So, we’ve had to look for different ways for Erin to learn and I think she honestly does better at the moment if that comes through play. When I first saw the Magicube* World
