Book Review – Little Mouse’s Christmas by Riikka Jantti

Earlier in the year we were lucky enough to review Little Mouse Helps Out. Now Riikka Jantti is back with Little Mouse’s Christmas. Perfect for the festive season coming upon us.

Little Mouse's Christmas

Book Description

Little Mouse has a long time to wait for Christmas! Luckily he has lots of things to do to get ready!

It’s almost Christmas and Little Mouse is looking forward to celebrating with Mummy Mouse and Grandpa and Grandma Mouse. But Christmas Eve feels very far away and Little Mouse is very impatient!

Fortunately there are all kinds of things for Little Mouse to do, like cooking gingerbread and choosing just the right Christmas tree.

The curious and lively toddler Little Mouse is back in this beautifully Scandinavian Christmas story by Finnish author/illustrator Riikka Jäntti.

Kiddiewinkles Red Star Toy Basket Review

Baby girl has sooooo many toys. Too many in fact! So when we were asked to review one of Kiddiewinkles Toy Basket I had a lightbulb moment. This would be perfect to keep her toys and bits under control. Hopefully my living room will be a bit more clutter free.

I have been on the look-out for something like this toy basket for a while to help me keep the place tidy, but I haven’t found the right one. With her only being 20 months old and still falling around, I didn’t want anything with sharp edges.

This one is exceptionally good and of high quality.

PJ Masks: Time to be a Hero DVD – Review

Ever since baby girl could lift her head, PJ Masks has been one of her favourite cartoons. Now she starts dancing to the theme tune and tries to sing along, it’s so cute to watch!

When we were asked to review the new PJ Masks: Time to be a Hero DVD I think I was just as excited as she was. I do find myself humming along to the tune at various times of the day.

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.

Kids Love Flying Toss Out the Kite and Get a Drone - flying a drone with your 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.

Toddlebike2 Review and Giveaway

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.
