April’s #FunFinds

April 27, 2015

Another month has flown by, the nights are staying lighter for longer and the warmer weather has brought hopes for a long hot summer. 

I’m joining in with Family Four Fun’s #FunFinds linky again this month as I loved the opportunity to tell you about ‘fun finds’ I have seen throughout April.

    I LOVE Cozy Coupes!! I love the addictive quality they seem to exude with toddlers, and how they are all drawn to the same one! We ended up buying one each for the boys- and they’d still fight over the same one. An absolute amazing invention and I love that they now come in so many different versions.

    How am I so late to spotting this!!

    Some brilliant, brilliant finds – I’ve been eyeing up the Little Tikes Cape cottage for Fifi but my favourite this month is Method – I love this brand even though they’re a cleaning product and now NEED some of the Sunset Beach edition in my life!!

    Thanks for Linking!!
