We love BRIO in this house. L has an extensive wooden train set which mixes BRIO and other brands together and one of his favourite items is his BRIO police station, so when we got offered the chance to review the BRIO Cargo Helicopter I just knew he would love it.

Rubik’s Junior Animal Range – Review and Competition

I hope the Easter Holidays are treating you all well. If the weather has had you cooped up inside you might be looking for something different to keep little hands busy. Rubik’s Junior have launched a great range of animal puzzles that may just give you a moment of peace.Rubik's Junior

We have been playing with these fun puzzles at home and they have proved a big hit. There are four animals in the range. A cat, dog, bunny and a bear. The bright colours and tactile shapes immediately appealed to L. He was twisting and turning them before I even had chance to explain what to do. Rubik's Junior Continue reading Rubik’s Junior Animal Range – Review and Competition

Paw Patrol Puzzle from Ravensburger

L loves Paw Patrol. Flippin’ loves it. Personally I’m not the biggest fan, I think I take it too seriously. Why can the dogs speak but not the cat? Why are the adults all so inept? Where are Ryder’s parents? But I digress, L loves it and I love puzzles so the latest Paw Patrol Puzzle from Ravensburger was always going to be a hit. Paw Patrol Puzzle

Getting Cheeky with CheekiMees

CheekiMees are cute, noisy and very cheeky collectable characters that fit in your hand and talk to each other. To celebrate their arrival L was asked to show his best cheeky poses over on Instagram, but I thought I’d write a bit about them as well, it is what I do after all!CheekiMees Continue reading Getting Cheeky with CheekiMees

Pokemon – Not Just for Christmas

JCB Hydradig 1:32 Diecast Review

A little while back L received some unexpected post. A parcel with his favourite label on the outside, a JCB label. It wasn’t anything I was expecting and had no idea what could be inside so when L opened it up to find a perfect 1:32 Scale Model of a JCB Hydradig he was ecstatic.  Continue reading JCB Hydradig 1:32 Diecast Review

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.
