L loves a giraffe, it is his favourite animal of all time. His first toy as a baby was Gerry the Giraffe, Gerry was with in him hospital and has rarely left his side since, nursery, school, holidays, doctors appointments, haircuts, you name it Gerry has been by his side. Gerry is a shell of his former self, well loved barely covers it, but this is what started the giraffe obsession, an obsession that lead us to Icon Wall Stickers and the biggest giraffe gift yet.

Our Halloween 2020

As you know I’ve been on a quest to find some different ways to make sure Halloween stays fun this year.

I’ve found balloons and cakes and bugs and crafts. I’ve even found mini breaks away and experience days. Halloween is sure to be fun this year and different in many ways. I’m happy that L won’t miss out just because he can’t go trick or treating with all his friends like he wants.

Hobgoblin The Unofficial Beer of Halloween

New FGTeeV Toys – Review

Have you watched the guys from FGTeeV on YouTube? I’ve caught snippets here and there because L loves them.

Well now they’ve launched season two of their toy range and we’ve been sent a selection to have a look at. L was delighted, not only because he’s watched them on his tablet but also because the range include blind bags and he does love a blind bag.
