• Neon LED ice lolly light review with GetGingerSnap

    As we have been updating most rooms in the house, the kitchen has been having some finishing touches too, I love wall art and the last thing I had on my list to add was a neon wall sign of some sort. Get Ginger Snap contacted us to see if we would like to review one of their LED lights from their range available and I choose an ice lolly light as I thought it looked really striking and would be really fun in the kitchen – especially as Freddie is asking for ice lollies out of the freezer all day long at the moment. I was expecting quite a…

  • Meegos – series one review

    As a child I loved collectible series – I think we all must have had some at one point. Fast forward a few decades down the line and my own children are now in the realms of collectibles. The ones Freddie tends to have are annoyingly small, plastic and most definitely lost and forgotten once they are put in his toy box. we have been asked to review Meegos and Mini Meegos first series collectible toys – with a twist – they are plush! I love this idea and I know that he is more likely to keep them in sight as he will sleep with them as they are…

  • Nuu moblie T2 tablet review

    I thought for a long time that Freddie would not be bothered with having a tablet and that we would never be those parents whose children use one in a given situation. Well actually we are. We so are. Initially it started with him using the SmartTV remote to put YouTube on and watch his favourite channels. Then he wanted our phones which we didn’t agree to as I feel that’s when I can become constant – I always have my phone on me and I don’t want him to think it’s always accessible. He has been at nursery for eight months and I can see the shift in his increasing independence and…

  • Being savvy with the UK checkout club

    I love online shopping and now I have got two kids I do it a lot more, it saves time, hassle and it’s so convinient having it delivered without a child having a tantrum at the check out while I’m trying to wrangle a large object. Like most people, I used to try and use my card to collect points for whatever supermarket I was shopping at and stock those up but I never got a decent amount back as I either for got or it was just such a low return. I even had a dabble at some cash back sites but unfortunately some of the fees themselves put…

  • Boys amongst the Bluebells

    Sometimes the calmness and earthy smells of a woodland are all you need to settle your head and start a fresh. Our local woods have just had the bluebells start to show and show I took the boys to have a look. Its so peaceful up there and apart from the hubbub if the boys all you can hear is bird song and feel the light breeze. Times like this remind me of being little and taking long walks with my dad and our dog Benny. Freddie gets right stuck in there like I used to, he soon found some millipedes and was upturning logs to see what lived beneath.…

  • Bullyland Chubby Unicorns review

    There is no escaping that Unicorns are everyone’s fave mythical creature at the moment – including mine! I love anything related to Pegasus or Unicorns and so when I was given the chance to review some Bullyland Chubby Unicorns I knew I had to have them! I was sent four Unicorns including Chubby Fairy Princess unicorn who is SO sassy and the cute and I just love having her in my bedroom next to my makeup to make me feel like a queen. Surprisingly Freddie also thinks they are super cute and he is very much a boys boy, he wants to take them to nursery to show one of his friends as she…

  • The return of TechDeck review

    Even though I am now 31, one of my most outstanding memories if of secondary school and everyone having a TechDeck mini skateboard! I was pretty useless with mine but one of the boys in my class was permanently attached to his and he was always doing mini stunts on the wooden school desks. As things generally do, Techdecks have now gone full circle and to celebrate their 20th anniversary (blimey) and have been rereleased! I have been sent some for Freddie to have a play with and its so, nostalgic to see! They look so much better than I remember, being featured with designs from prolific skate brands to really…

  • Getting the family car right

    I have always, always driven small cars. Even as a community nurse I can stuff fit all my nursing equipment and do my rounds. I work in a very rural area and it’s easy to nip here and there in my little pap pap. I think I have been quite blasé though, thinking that I would always be ok with this. Now our family is bigger, I definitely feel the need to get the family car right. This isn’t just for the extra space but more so the feel of being safer and more protected. I have been using my husband’s car a lot more and where I used to…

  • Sambro Crocodile Diner review

    At long last Freddie is now at the perfect age to be able to play a board game and be engaged as well as trying the best he can to keep playing by the rules (most of the time) and take turns. We have been sent Crocodile Diner from Sambro and its an active but easy game for the family to get involved and for the younger ones to enjoy. The game comes with three crocodile snout masks and some little foam fishes. We have actually doubled up the use of this game and Freddie likes to wear one of the masks in the bath and hunt out the fish.…
