Win a kids game and puzzle bundle from Jumbo Games

I’m a bit of a closet puzzler, I’ll admit it. I love a good jigsaw puzzle and recently L has been getting more and more into it which is just lovely, so I was really happy to get a lovely delivery of puzzles and games from Jumbo.

Better yet they have also got a great bundle of kids games and puzzles for one of my lucky readers to win.  Continue reading Win a kids game and puzzle bundle from Jumbo Games

Fun With Magic Tracks

You may have seen the TV adverts for Magic Tracks, it’s a fun and easy track system for race cars. It bends,is flexible, glows and is super easy and fun to use. L got sent the starter set and has been putting it through its paces.

Cat Playing With L’s New Toy

Magic Tracks is a 2016 top ten toy success story from the US and it has just launched in the UK. The track itself comes in 4 colours, is chunky and strong whilst still remaining completely flexible. The track clips together almost like puzzle pieces and just snaps apart.
L hasn’t quite mastered putting it together by himself yet, but has really grasped the taking it apart, moving it around and creates amazing tracks all by himself. I am often only needed to clip the last two bits together.

Reading with JCB Kids

A couple of weeks ago we had another fun delivery from JCB Kids. As always L was very excited and absolutely delighted with his new goodies.

He got some fabulous pajamas from the range available at George, great digger printed bottoms with a fun Joey top which quite frankly he could wear as a T-Shirt, there is a chance that he maybe has! At only £9.00 for the set I think this is really good value, everything washes up well and has been tumble dried several times.  Continue reading Reading with JCB Kids

Paw Patrol Ilumi-Mates

L loves Paw Patrol. If allowed he watch it from the moment he wakes to the moment he fell asleep. He often enjoys running around the house pretending to be on various rescue missions with the pups, it’s all very cute.

Fearne Fairy and the Landing Lesson – Book Review

L and I love the Whimsy Wood books by Sarah Hill. Simple stories about Pixies and Fairies and most of all nature.

Fearne Fairy and the Chocolate Caterpillar is no exception. It is brilliant. The perfect length bedtime book. Lots of amazing illustrations.

Our December JCB Kids Delivery

It is fair to say that being a JCB Kids Brand Ambassador has made L’s year, a ready supply of digger and tractor themed goodies delivered to his door to test out has been no hardship for him.

This month the delivery couldn’t have been better timed, it was waiting for us the day we got home from Bluestone. We had just had a lovely break but L had been really unwell on the last day and we had just driven home, in one day, so L had been in the car all day. Tired, bored and poorly it wasn’t a pretty combination, so seeing a lovely JCB parcel when we got in really changed our evening He perked up straight away, playing happily whilst we unloaded and got ourselves a bit organised.
