Finding ways to help your child understand the importance of love while also developing fundamentals about life can be a tricky combination. When children are young, they are little sponges, wanting to soak up as much as information as possible and as parents, it’s important to find ways to make certain that we’re filling them full of knowledge to be able to thrive and succeed in life.… View Post

Eh-Oh! It’s a Tubby Playdate

Eh-Oh! It’s a Tubby Playdate

With her love for the four colourful Teletubbies, we have tried to incorporate it in other areas.  With Teletubbies books enjoyed at storytime, puzzles to challenge her logical and fine motor skills and an array of fun Teletubbies toys to play with.  Something that we’ve recently done to extend the Teletubbies fun is to hold a Tubby Playdate.

Given that the Teletubbies have playmates on hand what better what to have fun than inviting some friends over for fun, food and activities – all Teletubbies themed, of course!… View Post

Are you ready for the Smyths Toys Superstores …

Are you ready for the Smyths Toys Superstores Party Event? – Saturday 26th May 2018

As a child, I can remember the excited feeling I got whenever my mum said that we could pop into the toy store whilst we were out.  Now that I am a parent, I watch the children’s faces light up as I mention that we have time to pop into Smyths Toys on the way home from wherever we have been.  The sparkle appears in their eyes and chattering starts between them on our drive over there.  Planning on what to look at first, guessing to see if they have any Skylanders on offer or whether they have new sets of LEGO available.… View Post

Learning through play with the Casdon Self Service Supermarket

I’m hoping that I’m not the only parent who loves the chance to relive their childhood through their own children.  One of my favourite toys as a child was a Bluebird A La Carte Kitchen.  I can still remember unwrapping it on Christmas day.  With this in mind, you can only imagine how quickly I said yes to having the opportunity to receive a Casdon Self Service Supermarket.  I couldn’t wait to see what it looked like, the shelves filled with produce and handy shopping basket too.  Erm, I mean, I knew that the children would love all these features.… View Post

ExtraWize Scooter ScootWize Reflectors

ExtraWize Scooter ScootWize Reflectors

Since we moved to our current home the children have been fortunate enough to have the additional space and freedom to utilise their scooters much more.  Whether they are scooting to school, heading over to one of the parks or just scooting around burning off some energy.  Although the weather at the moment is beautiful, they do still need to be visible to drivers and road users – even if they are scooting on the pathways.  The addition of a ScootWize reflector from ExtraWize gives me the peace of mind that they visible as the light fades, or the clouds appear. … View Post

Little Tikes Sandy Lagoon Waterpark

Little Tikes Sandy Lagoon Waterpark

Thinking back to my own childhood I can still recall playing with the water table in my reception classroom.  We’d all wait patiently for our turn in the messy area to splash about, pour cups of water through the wheels etc.  Piglet too enjoys this activity, usually refrained to the bathroom, with her baths taking at least an hour to complete.  Even then we have to coax her out of there.  With the addition of the Little Tikes Sandy Lagoon Waterpark to the garden, she has been making the most of the spring weather.… View Post
