Many of us may have heard of reusable baby wipes but not thought too much about them, but do you know the positive impact they can bring to our planet? In fact, disposable baby wipes contain a high amount of plastic, and with this material it can actually harm your little ones skin without you realising the problem.
Isla was so excited to receive the Jumbo Advent Calendar from PLAYMOBIL®. We are big fans of advent calendars which you may have realised from previous years and we are also huge fans of PLAYMOBIL®. So, this review takes the format of: summary of the jumbo advent calendar and then photo by photo of what is in each box. Hugeeeee spoiler alert for this post, but for those grown ups looking to purchase the perfect calendar (I think this is it) then you need to see what you get.
Noah is obsessed with space, he knows some incredible facts. He really enjoys science too. Isla is also a huge fan of science. They both discussed how much they love maths and science at the weekend. Facts and information drives them and learning new things. They loved it when he received this Build your own microscope from Build Your Own Kits. They have a few different products including a telescope which I just know would love (great idea for Christmas). It is a great, sustainable, toy for any child and it uses less plastic – which is fantastic!
Isla was extremely lucky to receive the Comic series of EverDreamerz from PLAYMOBIL®. Isla loves collectible toys and these are perfect! They come in 2 different collectible packets: the collectible characters and the surprise boxes. Let’s meet the characters and what is inside each box, and what Isla got in her surprise boxes. They are aimed at children 7 and above.
I have been trying to read a lot more this year, I think I have read more books since January than I have in the past 5 years. I forgot how much I love to read, I could sit and read for hours when I get into a good book. I remember a few months back I had nearly finished the book and so I kept going, it was 2am before I put the book down. Today I am honoured to share an excerpt and competition to win a copy of Time School: We Will Honour Them. The new book by Nikki Young.
We love playing fun games as a family, albeit we have a little man that doesn’t like to lose, we have been trying new games and old games together. Like Scrabble, something Daddy and I used to play when we were younger. I remember having game afternoons, on a Sunday, with my siblings and Mum growing up. We liked Mouse Trap! Great game. Some of these games were meant to be travelling with us to Dubai. I stocked up on these little games as they are the perfect size to have in a backpack. I knew we would have long waits at the airport, the plane journey was long and I thought they would be fun to play with our friends when we got to Dubai. As we didn’t go, they actually still came in very handy as we have been playing them throughout lockdown. They are great family fun…
Isla is incredibly lucky that she gets to unbox her favourite things; she just loves L.O.L Surprise! and has done for a long time. So when she was asked to review the new L.O.L Surprise! Furniture packs she squealed with excitement. These little bundles of happiness are great for little L.O.L fans and come with 10 surprises in each pack that make up a scene. It’s a lot of fun.
Isla loves playing babies, so when she received the new BABY born magic bed heaven and BABY born Soft Touch Doll she was super happy. These are great for stimulating imaginative play and also encourages Isla to be responsible. She has to look after her doll and take care of it, it’s really cute watching her rise to the occasion.
