Blippi Toys Are in the UK

L loves Blippi and has done for so long now. It all started through his love of tractors and us trying to find some suitable and not completely boring tractor videos for him to watch on YouTube.

So excited for the Blippi Toys UK launch box

Blippi was there for us and as L has grown so has Blippi, with videos for every occasion, music albums, books, clothes and toys. A lot of which have only been available in America. But the toys have now launched in the UK and we were sent a huge box of them to celebrate.

Sleepover fun with SO DIY

Do your kids have sleepovers yet? L seems to be in the minority amongst his friends in that he does. L and his best friend from nursery have had several sIeepovers and they love it. Even If they are little terrors.

It helps that we are good friends with the parents and that both of us are happy for the other to look after and tell each others children what’s what!

A Happy Birthday with ZURU Bunch-O-Balloons Party

My baby boy is now 6 years old. SIX!! How did that even happen? This year I was very clear to him that he could either have a party with all of his school chums, or he could have a special day out with his bestie.

He opted for a special day out, which was lovely and perfect (and a real relief as it was cheaper and more fun for me) but I had a surprise up my sleeve for him. As a treat I said he could invite three friends round for a birthday tea after school, so he could have cake and a but of fun.

So Magic DIY Wonder Garden

The So Magic DIY Wonder Garden has been a revelation for us. It is a wonderful toy on many, many levels. Some obvious, some not so obvious.

Our Magic Garden

The main idea of the Wonder Garden is to create your very own little world. With a sparkling slime pool, coloured sand gardens, arches, decorations, stones and cute little animals all surrounding the centerpiece. A crystal tree you get to grow and watch transform over 12 hours.

The Perfect Toy For Surviving Building Work

All summer long we had builders in working on our extension. Mostly the weather was great so we were just chilling out in the garden, or we had days out planned. When we were tired we still had an internet connection so we could watch Netflix in the conservatory. It genuinely wasn’t too bad.

My Little World

However, some days we were home, the weather was rubbish and on many of those days we had no internet as, on occasion, it had to be unplugged so things could be built. Those days were long. So freaking long.

Schleich Farm World Large Horse Stable – Review

We love Schleich toys in our house, they are always a big hit with the kid and so detailed. We’ve already got a few bits including the Schleich Wild Life 4 x 4 Vehicle and an amazing Dino Set with Cave so we were both really excited when we were asked to review the Farm World Large Horse Stable.

Colour Changing Slime

Like most kids L loves Slime, it’s squishy, oozy and makes gross sounds when you push it back into a tub! What’s not to love? We’ve got a great set at home from So Slime DIY to easily make slime ourselves and it’s a quick and easy activity to while away a bit of time. When we found they not made slime that changes colour we were super excited to try it.
