For quite some time Erin was the least girly girl. I made a choice to not dress her in pink very often and she doesn’t really wear dresses much either. Erin is also a bit of a bulldozer of a toddler too and not at all delicate. However, just before Christmas Erin started to show an interest in dolls. When VTech offered to send Erin the Little Love Baby Talk of course we said yes! I couldn’t wait to see her reaction to it. The Little Love Baby Talk doll is aimed at children from age 2 and has a RRP
It’s only been recently that Erin has really gotten into soft toys. I think this is probably because we didn’t have too many for her as a baby so she never really had them around. However, over the past couple of months she’s really shown a lot of interest in soft toys and tends to have a couple she likes more than others. We were recently sent a couple of items from the Snuggletime Winnie the Pooh plush range for Erin and they are gorgeous! There are three characters available in the Snuggletime Winnie the Pooh Plush Range and they are
Erin is a huge Peppa Pig fan and snorts like a pig as soon as it comes on television or she sees something with Peppa on it. Up until recently, Erin has never really done puzzles before. We have had plenty of shape sorters but nothing like a puzzle. To get Erin started we thought the Peppa Pig ‘My First Floor Puzzle’ from Ravensburger would be good. The puzzle costs around £10 and is suitable for children aged 2+. Being a puzzle for very young children there are only 16 pieces. I think that this is a really nice amount
In any normal family with children you know that you’re going to end up with way more toys than you have room for. We’re lucky to have a fairly nice sized house, not massive by any means but probably bigger than we really need. However, when your child’s birthday is on New Year’s Day, you end up with a crazy amount of toys in a very short space of time. Although I cleared out some before we still needed a post Christmas toy cull! Erin received some wonderful toys as presents this year for both her birthday and Christmas and
We’re now at the end of November and it’s pretty cold outside now! Erin and I get stuck indoors a lot of the time due to not being able to drive; we don’t want to get soaked before we even get somewhere! However, spending a few days in a row indoors with a nearly 2 year old means constantly having to think of fun and different things to do so they don’t get bored. Addo Play have some great winter boredom busters for toddlers we’ve been trying some of them out lately. Erin will soon be starting nursery and we’re
Twirlywoos is one of Erin’s newest favourites to watch and she absolutely loves the theme song. As soon as it comes on the television she starts singing about Quacky Birds and bopping around. I think Twirlywoos gives Paw Patrol a run for it’s money in terms of favourites now. So, when we were asked to review the Twirlywoos Musical Statues Great BigHoo I had to say yes! Musical Statues Great BigHoo comes with two features, musical statues and dancing mode. Each feature is controlled by BigHoo’s hands so pressing one will make him sing and dance! When I first showed Great BigHoo
Peppa Pig is one of the few television shows that Erin will happily watch and enjoy. She ‘oinks’ at the television when it comes on and it was one of the first things she really recognised. At times I feel like Paw Patrol and In The Night Garden taken over so when I saw the Peppa Pig Water Filled Muddy Puddle from Bladez Toyz, I fell in love a bit. That was just me, Erin hadn’t even seen it! Before the mat can be played with it takes a little bit of setting up. John set ours up and it was a
For months and months Erin was crazy about one only television show and we would watch next to nothing else with her. Just recently though, Erin has developed a love for In The Night Garden (ITNG) and it is now part of her bedtime routine. With the clocks changing recently, we were sent the Twinkling Lullaby Iggplepiggle and it couldn’t have come at a better time! When you get any kind of toy that includes a battery pack you don’t expect them to feel quite as soft and cuddle as they should. That’s not the case at all with Twinkling Lullaby Iggplepiggle.
