It’s such silly things to remember from my childhood, however, something I have always wanted to give my children is a wooden playhouse.  One that would be played in throughout their childhood and one that they would recall when they are older.  After years of not having a garden to house a playhouse, last year we moved home and finally have a garden to call our own.  Whilst a trampoline was one of the first things we added for them, I still longed for a playhouse for them to enjoy.… View Post

One of the things that all of the children seem to love is helping Mr. Boo when he completes the gardening chores.  From collecting the weeds he has pulled up, holding the garden bin as he empties the grass cuttings etc. Whilst there are a number of chores they can assist with, mowing the lawn isn’t.  This doesn’t mean that they don’t want to get involved, so when we were offered the Husqvarna Toy Walk Lawn Mower to review, I knew they would be delighted.… View Post
