Toys: Imaginext Jurassic World Dinosaurs!

Arlo’s next obsession seems to be dinosaurs, which started after we visited World of Dinosaurs in March, and he now watches endless episodes of anything dinosaur related, pretends be a dinosaur and has even started happily eating turkey dinosaurs for dinner! So imagine how excited he was when a gigantic box arrived with dinosaur footprints on it! Inside was a whole…

A Disney Vampirina Boo-tiful dress

Athena discovered Vampirina a few months ago, and it’s definitely in her top 5 favourite TV shows at the moment, and it’s also one that the kids will happily watch together, despite the main character being a girl (Arlo is a very typical just turned 3 year old boy, despite us trying to get him to like or even just…

Arlo’s Dream Horse with Petplan Equine

I spent most of my primary school summer holidays (and Easter and Christmas!) riding ponies, and I loved it! My dad had a small farm in Wales and we had two ponies, Misty and Frosty, but I also spent a lot of time at the local riding stables helping out, going on hacks on the mountains and helping out on…

The little girl in me is pretty…

Toys: PAW Patrol Mission PAW Mission Cruiser review

If you’ve got small kids then you’ll probably be aware of PAW Patrol, and will also be relieved to hear that there are a whole load of new Mission PAW episodes out on Nick Jnr, hurrah! My kids can watch the same thing over and over again but I like a bit of variety! To help them celebrate the new…

What the Kids Played with: Schools

Since starting school in September Athena has completely fallen in love with it; there hasn’t been a day yet that she’s not been happy to go, and she practically skips into the classroom as soon as the door opens. She has also pretty much fallen in love with her teacher, which I guess is better than hating her. But half…
