Toy Shopping With Wicked Uncle

AD | Gifted  Living in quite a small town we don’t have many options for buying things like toys and activities for Erin. We don’t have a toy shop apart from the section in the local supermarket and looking at certain shops online can be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. Unless you know what you’re looking for then it’s hard to search for things for inspiration. I certainly don’t always know what I want to buy for Erin and I also don’t know what other children her age might be playing with. We recently tried out a

Bunny’s Garden Game Review

AD | Gifted When I look for new games or toys for Erin I now try to look for something that she will not only have fun with but also something that will challenge her a little bit. Something we haven’t done a lot of is balancing so when we were offered Bunny’s Garden from Goula I was hoping it would be something Erin would enjoy. Inside the box you get a wooden bunny seesaw, 6 food pieces and 1 dice. The aim of the game is quite simple; each time the dice is rolled you add that coloured piece

FlipaZoo World Toy Review

AD | Collaborative post Erin is really into soft toys at the moment, which is quite surprising as it took her around 3 years to show any interest in them at all. However, with a lot of soft toys you are quite limited as to what you can do with them. We were recently introduced to FlipaZoo World though, who offer a range of toys with a bit of a difference. We received a selection of the new products which includes various sized plush animals as well as harder, mini sets. What makes FlipaZoo World different from other regular soft

Favourite Toys Of A 3 Year Old

AD | Contains some gifted items Last year I wrote a post all about the toys that Erin liked to play with when she was 2. I had a comment on that post recently asking if I had an updated post about what Erin likes to play with now that she’s 3 so I thought I’d better write one! Here are some of the toys she has been playing with this year and that seem to be her favourites: Colouring is always a winner in our house. Erin has had a decent collection of colouring books since she was probably

Peppa Pig’s Big Red Car Review

AD | Gifted item Ever since Erin first saw it on TV she has been mad about Peppa Pig. We have a few small toys from magazines etc. and a couple of small figures but Erin has been desperate for something a bit bigger for a while. We were recently offered Peppa Pig’s Big Red Car to review and I knew that Erin would love it. Peppa Pig’s Big Red Car comes with the red family car, Peppa Pig and Mummy Pig figures, picnic hamper, picnic blanket with a bottle, 2 plates of food and a BBQ. The set requires

Baby Shark Let’s Go Hunt And Sound Puzzle Review

AD | Gifted items Before Baby Shark had become as popular as it is now I remember Erin watching it very early on. It was one of the first things we found that she liked on YouTube when we first started to let her watch some videos. She watched it over and over and over again, just like the millions of other children have done now around the world. We’re some time on now from watching the song for the very first time but Erin still loves Baby Shark! Let’s Go Hunt Fishing Game One of Erin’s favourite games to

Disney’s The Lion King Live Action Plush Review

AD | Gifted items The Lion King was the first film that I ever remember seeing at the cinema and it’s been a favourite ever since. The only other Disney film that has come close to topping it was Moana but The Lion King has always stayed firmly in my number one spot. I never had any toys or items the first time around but now with the live-action film being released this month, we were sent a couple of products and I’m pretty sure I was more excited than Erin. First up we were sent Simba, who is the

Hape Puzzles Review

AD | Gifted items As Erin gets older she looks for toys that push her more and toys that make her think about what she needs to do. Puzzles are a great way to encourage children to think about problem solving and sequences. We were recently sent a couple of really different puzzles from Hape for Erin to try! Spinning Balloons Puzzle Hape’s puzzles come in different levels and are aimed at different ages. The Spinning Balloons Puzzle is a level 4 puzzles and is aimed at children aged 3 and up. This style of puzzle is really fun and different
