A #TrollsHoliday Bundle

Last weekend Athena & Arlo received a huge bundle of trolls goodies, which they were super pleased with! They are so into the original trolls movie that we probably watch it at least once a week or so!

What Arlo played with: Geomag Magicubes

I love to watch Arlo interact with new things, watching kids learn how the world around them works is a privileged and a pleasure. It’s even better when learning about things come as part of a game or toy, as in my experience the moment my kids realise you are trying to actually teach them something they put up a…
