There are four Mini Builds in the range, a Ladybird, Honey Bee, Stag Beetle and Dragonfly.

Do you have a child who is so very interested in the natural world around them? I do and it is lovely but it comes with a huge amount of questions, which, whilst again lovely, is also very draining! Well I am always looking for ways to answer some of those questions and the GeoSafari SeaScope allows L to see what is actually happening under the water, so instead of asking, he can look.Continue reading GeoSafari SeaScope
I don’t ever have to be asked twice to try out a chocolate and I do enjoy oat milk, so I was very excited to try out the range of chocolates from Happi.
Lower in sugar than other chocolate brands, dairy free and vegan friendly, Happi ticks all the boxes for treat time. There is a wide choice of flavours too and it ticks the boxes for recyclable packing too, using a card sleeve and a home compostable plastic inner. I do much prefer to choose a product that is more environmentally friendly.Continue reading Happi Oat Milk Chocolate
As you all know I have been very much looking forward to the start of Interlude in the Close, the line up is phenomenal and it’s a joy to have theatre back.
Things kicked off with The Wind in the Willows, a musical production written by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes with music by the award-winning Stiles & Drewe, presented by the Turbine Theatre, London.Continue reading The Wind in the Willows
With the summer holidays looming it’s always good to have some activities up your sleeve for a rainy day. For us one of the things we go back to time and time again are fossil dig kits. They are simple and easy to use and happily keep L occupied for quite a while depending on the size. We’ve recently tried the Dig & Display Fossil Kit from Learning Resources and its one of the best we have had!Continue reading Dig & Display Fossil Kit
We’re always up for trying new games at home. Especially ones that get us outside.

I remember moving house when I was in high school and our new house had a massive back garden, with a huge lawn and loads of space to play. That summer we got a badminton set and me and my sister spent hours in the garden playing. It was great. So when asked if L would maybe like his own badminton starter set, of course I said yes!Continue reading Win a Badminton Starter Set
Mummy I’m bored. Says the child surrounded by toys and distractions. How many times do you hear this? Especially over the summer holidays! I’m always on the lookout for different activities that I can have on hand for these moments, over the half term we tested out a couple of the sets on offer from Planet JUNKO and we are both super impressed. To explain briefly you are taking junk modelling to extremes and really notching those creations up a gear.Continue reading JUNKO – The Perfect Boredom Buster
I have been lucky to try a few new skincare products recently, one of which is Alteya Organic Bulgarian Lavender Water. A simple product made of lavender and water that I have been absolutely loving. It’s a brilliant summer product as not only does it do wonders for your skin, it’s cooling and refreshing too.Continue reading Alteya Lavender Water
Powerbanks. We’ve all heard of them. Many of us have used them. But they’ve got their drawbacks, big and cumbersome or tiny and barely help. Not all that attractive and wires tangling everywhere in your bag or pocket. The Powerstation Mini from mophie solves all that and I’ve been putting it through its paces.Continue reading Power on the Go with mophie
