If you need some tips on how to get your toddler to brush teeth then read on…
Craze Sensations are a great new sensory toy from Canal Toys; kids will love the sounds and textures in the different pots. Each pot can be mixed with others to encourage messy play and creativity too. Isla was lucky enough to review the Craze Sensations 4 pack from Canal Toys. She loves the set; its squishy, stretchy and crunchy too. Oh and it’s collectable.

With each new year comes a renewed sense for many of us to look at ourselves and ask how we can be better. This can cover so many different aspects of our lives, from our performance at work to being a better friend. Another area where each year people continue to aim for improvements is their environmental impact. Making a difference with our environmental impact can take many forms. Doing simple things such as reducing the number of single-use plastics we purchase or swapping out the car for a bicycle or public transport when we can head back into the office. Buying eco-friendly baby and children products should definitely be at the top of your list.
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!
We recently joined the Asmodee Board Game Club, which we are absolutely thrilled with. We are huge fans of Asmodee games, we especially love Dobble. It is a winner with the kids and when we have dinner parties with other grown ups! Board Game Club means we get to review different board games each month and share our thoughts and tips with you. We have started off with a really fun action family game called: Just One. It’s a team player game where we can help each other in our own little way.
