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. At 19 months old now, she is the perfect age to get on it and give it a go.
When I was a kid I wasn’t really into dolls, but then they wasn’t really any around but Barbie’s, now on the market there is a wider range like the Lottie Dolls. We were very excited to take a look at a Lottie Doll, we chose Fossil Hunter which is from the Gold Collection.
I wanted to see what makes these dolls different from others, how good they are and the quality of the accessories that come with the doll.
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.
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.
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 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!
It’s funny as before I had baby girl I didn’t know anything about kids clothes, didn’t realise how quickly toddlers grow, didn’t realise that the age on kids clothes doesn’t mean a lot if you have a bigger than average child. It’s only recently that baby girl is coming into her own style and much prefers hoodies and trousers to dresses and skirts. I mean how can a toddler climb around in the mud in a dress? I don’t mean to be stereotypical but she isn’t a ribbons and dress kind of girl. My husband and I have always been open to what she wears. She is very much like I was when I was younger – into the outside life playing with sticks and stones. She is obsessed with grabbing handfuls of gravel when we are out, so loves to be in her wellies and dungarees.
We were asked by new business owner Love Millie to try out their website and designing an item of clothing. After spending a while browsing through the site we decided to design a hoodie. Perfect for my rough and tumble toddler!
