I love playing with the children and their toys, we draw together, play LEGO together, dolls and cars. It’s rather therapeutic for me as their Mum as well as for the kiddies themselves. Motherhood is a lovely experience; but, at the same time, there are certain things that new mothers tend to forget! If you have more than one child, then you already know the importance of playtime! But, new Mums need to understand the perks of engaging in playtime.
Noah & Isla were sent some fabulous products from the Disney Store to celebrate their favourite Disney Jr show; Puppy Dog Pals. We love that show. I asked the kiddies some fun questions about what the dogs get up to when we are at school and their response was hilarious.
To celebrate National Sandwich Week, Num Noms sent Isla a special sandwich making challenge. Isla had to make her favourite sandwich concoction that resembled her favourite Num Noms. She loves all of the Num Noms range, but her favourite at the moment is the Polish-It Noms.
Isla was very lucky to be sent this Num Noms Glitter lipgloss truck. She absolutely loved it. So did Mummy. It’s a fabulous idea for Isla’s age – what better way to spend your time than making your own lip gloss. Different flavours and also some sparkly glitter to add to the mix. This is a great idea!
What better way to celebrate National Unicorn Day (Monday 9 April) than running a competition? I am giving one of my lucky readers the chance to win an Argos voucher worth £75. All you have to do is fill in the entry form below. You can read my latest Chad Valley toy review, the post office playset, which is a firm favourite for imaginative play.
Isla loves unicorns, so when we were sent My Unicorn Garden she yelped with excitement. I thought it was only right to share this fabulous toy review on National Unicorn Day! So the idea of this grow & play toy is that you put all the pieces together and watch the grass grow. All you need is soil. Isla absolutely loved it.
Isla loves her Num Noms, she really wants to collect the entire set. We didn’t realise there was new nail varnishes to collect in Series 4, Polish-it Noms. We had a fun craft afternoon after our Num Noms Easter hunt. The girls had a lot of fun searching for the collectibles all over the house. Then had some quiet time crafting in our playroom.
Isla loves doing peoples hair, she spends hours brushing her hair and trying to put it in ponytails or plaits. That’s where Shnooks come in really handy, she can style their hair in many different ways. We love all the hand bands and combs that come with each Shnook. Not only that, but they smell delicious!
The toys in this house are everywhere. It’s the smallest ones that cause me the most problems though: Lego! We’ve all seen that doodle online where the Mum is stepping on Lego all the time. That’s our house. Noah is a typical boy, loves his Lego and Cars. Isla loves her dolls and soft toys. Keeping them all tidy is hard work, so I like to make life easy by having the right storage.
You guessed it, L.O.L Surprise! have kicked off the year with series 3: Confetti Pop. There are 9 new dolls to collect in a fabulous new designed ball, with a popping surprise element to it. It’s great fun, I love watching Isla’s face as she unravels the layers of these sell out toys.
