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!
Isn’t it every young girl’s dream to aspire to be a princess? Well Hallmark cards and Tesco are helping that dream to come true. Just keep on reading to find out more.
For my baby girl, we laid out a little tea party with all her toys with the fantastic party kit we received from Hallmark and Tescos. I’m sure she felt like a little princess, even if she doesn’t quite know what a princess is!
We cannot wait to see the new Beauty and the Beast film, with the greatest princess of them all – Belle. When I was younger Belle was the princess who I most related with. Her love of books is the same as mine.
Who doesn’t love Fireman Sam? I can’t believe he is turning 30! I used to watch him when I was small and then with my younger brother, so it’s something I want to do with my baby girl. She loves all the new cartoons and children’s programmes already but I want to get her into the older shows, like Fireman Sam. He is timeless and never ages!
There are lots of reasons why you should allow your toddler to spend time in the garden. For one thing, the fresh air can be good for them. The open space allows them to run around and play without restriction. Also, you don’t have to worry about spills and marks when they are playing around in the garden. To make the garden extra fun for your child, here are some things that you can add that your toddler will love. Just be careful to ensure they are safe, and you keep an eye on your child while they are doing the below!
