L was so excited about this latest box. On top of all the crafts, there were some party bag style goodies. Including some toy snails!! The snails are a simple pull and go, so we’ve been having a lot of fun racing them.

Feeding the Birds with Chapelwood

We are a very outdoorsy family and spend a lot of time in the garden. L loves being outdoors and exploring nature.  He was very excited to be sent a special bird feeder from the Chapelwood Children’s Range.

As soon as his lovely Owl Bird Feeder arrived we had to go and fill it up to give the birds their tea. The feeder is best filled with peanuts or sunflower hearts, but all we had in the house was a mixed bird seed and L had decided the birds needed their tea right that second! Obviously there was a bit of spillage but it holds the mixed seed well.

Beautiful Stories from Lost My Name

Lost My Name make personalised books and their latest tale is all about space travel. L loves rocket ships and the moon at the moment so we were all to eager to have a look at it.

But an incident with a spilt drink leaves them without their SatNav. This is where the adventures start and they have to find their way home.  Continue reading Beautiful Stories from Lost My Name

LeapPad3 – Review

For the last few weeks L has been busy putting the LeapPad3 from LeapFrog through it’s paces.

Designed to be the perfect first tablet experience, I was concerned how L would get on with the LeapPad3. He already happily scrolls through the iPad to get to YouTube Kids and enjoys being able to choose what he watching. Of course I’m not too keen on him using our very expensive phones and tablets! He also knows exactly how to exit out of YouTube Kids and go to the main YouTube App which is completely uncensored. Continue reading LeapPad3 – Review

Peter Rabbit – The Tale of the Great Breakout

So if you read my blog a bit then you’ll probably know I’m a huge Beatrix Potter fan and that L love the new Peter Rabbit tales from TV, so he was super excited to get to review the latest DVD offering.

Now my heart is always going to lie with the classic tales, there’s no denying that, but there is something about the new Peter Rabbit that has L transfixed. I think it’s the action more than anything, he adores it when they are being chased in their cart and he loves the owl, even if he’s one of the naughty ones.

Masha and the Bear – How They Met

I have somehow managed to miss Masha and the Bear, it’s not been a show on my son’s radar, so when we were asked to review the new DVD collection from Abbey Home Media I didn’t know what to expect.

Turns out Masha and the Bear is really adorable, there’s friendship, fun, as serious dose of cuteness and a lot adventure. This is their first DVD collection and I reckon there will be a lot more to come. Continue reading Masha and the Bear – How They Met

Getting More Out of Outdoors with Kids

I love getting outdoors with L, we are always playing and investigating the world together. I’m a big believer in getting grubby and just having fin but recently it has become apparent that maybe I need to be teaching him a bit more about nature.

There was a Ladybird incident.  Continue reading Getting More Out of Outdoors with Kids
