With Piglet feeling under the weather last week a special delivery managed to pop a smile on her face.  Just like the Teletubbies jumping out of the roof of their home, I pulled each of the new Teletubbies Twist n Chime toys from the package.  Each receiving a cheer from Piglet.  With the biggest gasp of excitement at the sight of the Po Teletubbies Talking 8” soft toy.… View Post

Paddington Movie Soft Toy

Paddington Movie Soft Toy

As a little girl, I can remember one of my class teachers reading us the stories of Paddington bear.  Although the book she read from only had a handful of illustrations we knew all about Paddington’s red hat blue duffel coat.  With her describing the little bear from deepest, darkest Peru.

The Paddington movies in recent years have reignited my fondness for the little brown bear.  With the children loving the films which are full of fun, adventure and lots of giggles!… View Post

No job is too big, no pup is …

No job is too big, no pup is too small for the Mission PAW pups!

PAW Patrol has a funny effect on the children in my house.  Piglet, of course, goes running to the TV and starts shouting out all the character names (she can’t say many words but funnily enough has managed to learn the PAW Patrol pups names!).  Whilst Roo and Tigger, do a little groan about having to watch it.  Although once the theme tune has finished you can find them glued to the screen as much as Piglet.… View Post

Have yourself a Trolls Holiday

Have yourself a Trolls Holiday

Last year we welcomed Trolls into our lives.  We were very lucky to be invited to the Trolls BFI Gala Screening – which was simply amazing!  This was Piglet’s first visit to the cinema, which she thankfully enjoyed due to the bold colours, amazing soundtrack and a packet of Wotsits.  Fast forward to this year and we had downloaded the film onto our Sky box (yes I am too lazy to keep putting the DVDs in and out of the DVD player) for us to watch one weekend.  The Trolls movie is a hit with all of us, but none more so that Piglet… Oh, my goodness, how she loves that film and Princess Poppy.… View Post

Transformers The Last Knight RC Bumblebee

Transformers The Last Knight RC Bumblebee

Shortly after we moved to our new house we found a bright orange car that looked like one of the cars from Transformers.  We would joke that it was resting up after a busy night out fighting the Decepticons as it was always there on the morning school run in the same place.  So you can imagine the delight on Tigger’s face when he came home to find the Transformers The Last Knight RC Bumblebee car sitting waiting for him…

Bumblebee is Optimus Primes most trusted ally. Now it’s up to you and Bumblebee to save the world from the evil Decepticons.… View Post
