Twinkl Educational Resources Review: Video Special

Like many parents I want to ensure that my children really enjoy the summer holidays. However, I do wonder what impact this break from school will have on their education. Our girls have been doing so well with their learning and reading. It seems a shame to go a whole six weeks without doing anything to support them and continue building on what they’ve already learnt. That’s why when Twinkl asked me to review their website, I was pretty excited. I have reviewed them once before back in 2014, but now that the girls are leaving reception and heading into year… [Read More]

Disneyland Hotel Review

If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past month or so then you’ll be forgiven for not knowing that we’ve not long returned from a 5 day trip to Disneyland Paris. For the duration of our stay, we stayed in the Disneyland Hotel. As such I thought I’d write a little review about the hotel itself. I’ve already written up our trip report, which you can read here (day 1), here (day 2), here (day 3) and here (day 4)! Plus, if you’re after more Disney inspired posts, click here. I’ve also written a post called, Tips for Booking your… [Read More]

A Night In with Belle: Beauty and the Beast

As a massive fan of all things Disney, it probably comes as no surprise that my favourite Disney Princess of all time is Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She’s fearless, feisty, brave and strong, but also feminine, intelligent, kind and caring. For me, she’s the best Disney Princesses because she encapsulates what women should be. She’s not a typical princess, and by that I mean she doesn’t loves pinks, she’s not dim and she doesn’t always falls for the wrong man like most princesses do. I genuinely think she’s a princess that can be looked up to, as a… [Read More]

Frenzy Adult Scooter Review

As I watch my children scooting to school or the park, I’ve often been tempted to join in with them. It looks like lot of fun, plus it’s great exercise too. I was recently sent a Frenzy 145mm Recreational Scooter to review, so now I can join in too! You see scooters aren’t just for kids! This scooter is available for £79.99, which I think is exceptional value for money. It looks pretty cool too! The blue wheels are complemented perfectly by the black and white of the scooter, and I really like that it also comes with a stand and… [Read More]

Paw Patrol Jumbling Tower Game Review

My girls and I love playing games. From board games to card games, to hide and seek and football, we love it! We’re also pretty big Paw Patrol fans which makes this review lots of fun for us! We were recently sent the super cool Paw Patrol Jumbling Towers game by SpinMaster. I love this game because it’s easy to play. There’s no faffing around beforehand reading instructions and trying to figure out what to do. You can just unbox it and you’re ready to play! Inside the colourful packaging you’ll find colourful wooden blocks. There’s red, blue and yellow…. [Read More]

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Unboxing and Review

Last year the parenting world went into overdrive when Hatchimals hit the market. Our twin girls were desperate for one each for Christmas, but my husband and I struggled to find them in stock anywhere. We searched online, set up stock alerts and raided all of our local supermarkets. Luckily we came up trumps one day and managed to get them in time for Christmas. Our girls faces lit up when they unwrapped them Christmas morning and they’ve been playing with them ever since! If your little ones love Hatchimals then I have some good news for you. Spin Master… [Read More]

Chicco Arrow Balance Bike Review

As a busy mum I’m always trying to think of new ways to get the kids to spend more time outdoors instead of cooped up inside in front of the TV. My twin girls already have a pedal bike each, but if I’m on my own with them both and they want to go to the park on their bikes, it’s really difficult for me to manage them both on pedal bikes on my own. You see they both need help steering and quite often the wheels on their pedal bikes get stuck if the ground is uneven. That’s why… [Read More]
