Review: WATCHU GPS Smart Watch for Kids

As a parent we all want what’s best for our children. At just six years old, our twin girls have been asking my husband and I at what age can they get a mobile phone. I usually just say when they’re in high school. I think I was around 12 years old when I got my first mobile phone. It didn’t do much other than make phone calls and send text messages, but mobile phones nowadays can do so much. It’s actually pretty scary. I worry about my children having access to social media and various websites which are all… [Read More]

Review: Pyjamas from Cool Clobber

I love a good pair of pyjamas, don’t you?! I’m the kind of person who’s usually in my pyjamas around 6pm! I like to be cosy, and for me there’s no better way to get cosy than with a good pair of pyjamas and a blanket! So when Cool Clobber offered to send us some pyjamas to review, I jumped at the chance! Cool Clobber sell a range of products for children and adults. Products include pyjamas, bedding sets, swimwear, backpacks and more! They sell lots of character items from the Avengers and Paw Patrol, to My Little Pony and Harry… [Read More]

Personalised Birthday Parties with Swizzels Sweets Plus Competition!

Coming up with ideas for your children’s birthday party can be a struggle. Our twins will be seven years old next year, and over the last six years they’ve had a real variety of parties. For their first birthday, we had a small family gathering at our home. Subsequent birthdays have been more costly as they tend to involve hiring halls, bouncy castles and entertainers! Their sixth birthday, however, was a tad different. Our girls decided that they wanted a birthday party at home with some of their school friends. This was music to my ears! No bouncy castles, soft… [Read More]

Animal Encounters at Pughs Garden Centre

Pughs Garden Centre is one of my favourite places to take my children. The centre itself sells a fantastic range of plants, furniture, gifts and more. There’s also a cafe which sells lovely food. In the summer holidays, Pughs Garden Centre run a number of different workshops for children. We’ve been to many different ones such as the butterfly ball, spooky spider crafts and we go there every year to meet Santa! This time around I booked onto their animal encounters workshop. A few days before we were due to visit, they popped up on my Facebook feed with a… [Read More]

Review: Mrs Wordsmith | The Narrative Journey

Encouraging children to learn can be at times frustrating, especially if the subject matter doesn’t appeal. This summer, my husband and I have been doing lots of different things to encourage our girls to read. We signed them up to our local library’s summer reading challenge and they’ve actually completed the challenge already. I think the incentive of stickers along the way, and a medal and certificate when they finish have helped, but in fairness, they’ve both done really well. Now that they’ve completed their reading challenge, they’re eager to learn lots more words. We were recently sent an exciting… [Read More]

Review: Discover the Fabulous World of Party Popteenies!

When it comes to toys nowadays, you have to find something pretty different in order to impress our girls. Soft toys just don’t cut it like they used to! That’s why we love Party Popteenies! We were sent a selection of their products to review including: Party Popteenies and the Surprise Popper (£4.99) Double Surprise Popper (£9.99) Party Surprise Box (£14.99) Party Popteenies are indeed different to most toys. Anything with a surprise element is always a bonus, and I think that’s why these toys have gone down so well with our girls! Kind of like a party popper, where… [Read More]

Little Live Bizzy Bubs Review

We all know a child that loves babies! Both of our twin girls love babies, especially M. She’s had a baby doll since birth, and at six years old she still treasures it. When we go out M will quite often point out babies and say, “Look mum! Aw, aren’t they cute!” That’s why I knew our girls would love the Little Live Bizzy Bubs Cute Carrier Playsets that we were recently sent to review! Her name is Swirlee, and she’s such a sweetie! She’s just full of surprises and fun! R and M couldn’t wait to play with her… [Read More]

Disneyland Paris 2018 Trip Report – Marvel Summer of Superheroes. Day One!

We’ve recently returned from a wonderful trip to Disneyland Paris. We went last year for four full days, and decided that we’d like to return again this year for longer. Back in October 2017 we booked our 2018 holiday for six full days! Some people will say this is too long, but for us it was perfect! We were able to do so much more than last year. We left on Saturday 9th June and flew from Cardiff airport. We spent the first night in Hotel Kyriad, but caught the free shuttle bus to Disneyland so that we could collect… [Read More]
