Review: Bargain Toys from PoundToy

Buying gifts for children can be expensive. If your child’s social life is anything like the social life of our six year old twins, then you’ll know exactly what I mean. Not a week goes by where they don’t come out of school with another birthday invitation. Of course, they absolutely love getting dressed up and going to all these wonderful parties, but for mum and dad, it can add up pretty quickly. Some parents I know will buy toys throughout the year in sales and clearances, then stash them all away so that when another party invite arrives, they’re… [Read More]

PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mission Cruiser + Mini Vehicles Review

Paw Patrol is one of those shows that comes on the TV, and makes my children stop in their tracks. They both absolutely love Paw Patrol, and have their own favourite characters. M adores Sky, and even has a Skye costume! R’s favourite is Chase. We have a few Paw Patrol toys already, but I knew that when our girls saw the PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mission Cruiser and mini vehicles they’d love it! In addition to the PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mission Cruiser which includes Robo Dog and his mini vehicle, we also received two PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mini… [Read More]

Rubik’s 2×2 Review and Competition

As part of the Rubik’s Junior Blogger Club, we were recently sent a 2×2 Rubik’s cube to review. We also have one to give away to one lucky reader, but before then I wanted to talk to you about Rubik’s! Back in October I shared a review with you about the Rubik’s Collectable Pet Puzzles. These are perfect for children. Our twin girls, who are almost six years old, absolutely love them! They’re very simple to solve, but do require some thinking. They really are perfect for children. In addition to the collectible pet puzzles, we do have a standard… [Read More]

Posh Paws Snuggle Time Winnie The Pooh Plush Range Review

Cuddly toys can be so much more than just play things for children. They can quickly become friends and comforters, helping children to feel safe and secure. Our girls will be six years old next month and they both have their favourite toys, and blankets that go everywhere with them! When I was little I had this one soft toy that I would carry everywhere with me. It was a small pink teddy bear, and at 31 years of age, I still have him! You see soft toys are often the one item that many adults keep from their childhood, and… [Read More]

However, with Christmas just five days away, I’ve been looking through their festive resources and thought I’d share them with you! You can view their Christmas Primary Resources online here, and you can also find Welsh language resources here…. [Read More]

Cool Maker Sew N’ Style Machine Review

It’s no secret that I enjoy sewing, so it comes as no surprise that my five year old twin girls are following in my footsteps with their love of sewing too. When I get my sewing machine out, our girls are keen for me to show them what I’m doing. They also love pressing the foot pedal down and helping to feed fabric through the needle. They’re both very enthusiastic about sewing so when I was offered the chance to review the Cool Maker Sew N’ Style Machine I jumped at the chance. Aimed at children aged six+, children can magically… [Read More]
