What the kids Did: Thomas & Friends Railway Pals

Arlo loves trains, he also loves putting things together and taking them apart so when I presented him with the Thomas & Friends Railway Pals set he was pretty excited! It took me forever to build the track as he kept grabbing bits and hugging them, but once i’d persuaded him that it would be a lot easier if we…

Shimmer & Shine Genie Toys

Athena hosted her first real playdate this week, inviting one her best preschool friends home after school. She’s had friends over before of course but they were always friends of the family and with their parents too.

Fisher Price Space Saver Jumperoo

Introducing another amazing ‘keep the baby happy, busy and safe’ activity centre from Fisher Price. Arlo outgrew the playmat and although we do still use the newborn to toddler swing on occasion now he’s mobile he didn’t really like being in it for long periods of time any more.

Bing’s House from Fisher Price

  Athena only ever asks to watch three programs on TV. One of them is Bing, and it’s the least objectionable of the choices! I like it because each little episode has a nice moral to the story, and it deals with every issues that a toddler comes across; Sharing, potty training, losing things and bath times! Bing’s House is decorated just…
