Kids Love Flying Toss Out the Kite and Get a Drone

Flying kites is fun, especially if you make one from scratch with your kids. This can help teach the principles of flight. It is interesting that the history of kite flying traces back to eastern China, and that the latest technological advancements in drone flight are coming from China as well. However, the first consumer drone that came to market was from Parrot, a French company, that was brought to market in 2010. Yes, kite flying is fun, but flying a drone with a camera is phenomenal fun for kids.

Choosing a Kid-Friendly Drone

 

The FAA rules are that any drone 8.8 ounces or heavier must be registered, and it must be flown according to FAA rules. This includes always having your drone within your visual line of sight and using a spotter if you are using FPV (first-person view) goggles. If you want to bypass all FAA rules, then get a drone under 8.8 ounces or only fly indoors where no FAA rules apply. This way, your kid cannot inadvertently be in violation of any federal flight rules. However, if your kid is the responsible type, all drones that you own that require it can be registered directly with the FAA for one fee of $5.00.

We have been testing out the great little Toddlebike2 for about a month now. Baby girl loves it! When the opportunity arose to try it out, it came at the perfect moment I was trawling around the internet for a little ride on toy for her.

Arty Apple Personalised Wall Art Review

We left all of baby girls wall stickers on her old bedroom wall in our old house as they were too hard to get off without damaging the paintwork. So this is the perfect opportunity to have a hunt around for some new artwork and prints for her bedroom walls, and we have been very lucky in that Arty Apple came along and offered up a review of a product on her site we knew exactly what to choose – personalised wall art.

Sri Toys – Educational Wooden Toys Review

When I was small I loved my wooden jigsaw shape sorter, I got many hours of play from it. I think there is something special about wooden toys. So when we were asked to review a product sample from Sri Toys who specialise in wooden games and toys we couldn’t turn them down.

I was excited to see which toy we were given to look at. Arriving in the post was this gorgeous wooden alphabet snake in a lovely eco-friendly brown box.

Review: Dry Kids Waterproof Dungarees

We have had a lot of terrible weather in Cornwall at the moment, it’s been flash floods, windy as well as the heavy rain. Not really Summer weather! So when I was approached to review waterproof dungarees from Dry Kids I thought we have the right weather for it! Plus having a new garden freshly turfed it would be ideal for baby girl to get out and about and try them out.

Dry Kids Waterproof dungarees

Dry Kids have lots of waterproof outerwear on their site, catering for ages from 2 to 12 years. There are lots to choose from including jackets, trousers and wellies. We browsed through the website and loved the look of the waterproof fleece lined dungarees, in Raspberry of course! You can also get them in Yellow, Navy and Turquoise.

The dungarees reminded me of when I was small, I had a blue pair very similar and bright green frog wellies for splashing about in the mud!
