Gruffalo Spotting

Like most children of his age L is a big fan of the Gruffalo. In fact it’s not just him, we’re a family of Gruffalo admirers. It’s one of my favourite books to read to him. So when we were asked to try out Magic Light Pictures ‘The Gruffalo Spotter’ app, we straight away said yes. I’m always up for a bit of Gruffalo Spotting.

Hey Duggee Toys from Jazwares

I have a confession to make. I enjoy Hey Duggee more than L. Sorry, I’ve said it. It’s true. Whilst he enjoys the show I often have to force him to watch it. I like Hey Duggee on Facebook, not for the parenting or crafting tips, but for the GIFs and show updates.

Peppa Pig & Miffy Toys from Jazwares

L recently got sent a lovely box of toys from Jazwares, including some fab Peppa Pig sets and Miffy toys. To start with I was going to run two separate reviews but as L has been mixing and matching them since the second they arrived, which is one of things I love, it only makes sense to cover them together.

Peppa Pig’s Family Home – Review

BRIO Police Station – Review

L adores his train set. It’s a lovely wooden one, so fits BRIO and loads of other brands. We have added to it over time and it’s getting pretty massive but when we were offered the chance of review the BRIO Police Station we jumped at the chance.
