My Four Year Olds favourite Netflix series

Athena is a bit of a telly addict, I think I only have myself to blame as I relied on the TV to be a bit of a babysitter when her little brother arrived and I had a not quite two year old to entertain during long feeds and naps! As a result she is quite happy to spend an…

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…

Both my kids seem to be quite loving and caring, and always love to have a doll or a cuddly toy to look after, though so far we’ve managed to steer clear from dolls who cry or pee (or worse). However, we’ve just had a new addition, Baby Wow Emma. Not only does she talk, she moves her head and…

Wicked Uncle

For Athena’s birthday we wanted to get her gifts that were either useful or educational in some way, but still fun.

What the kids played with: EZ Fort

My kids love to climb in things, sit under things, build things and hide. So when the EZ Fort Fairy Tale Castle arrived they were excited to whip it out of the box and play. Designed for kids age 3 and up to create their own forts from a set of spheres with holes in and two different lengths of…

Orchard Toys Smelly Wellies

‘Can we play the monsters game?’ is a phrase I’ve been hearing a lot recently from Athena. Smelly Wellies from Orchard Toys is what she’s referring to and it’s a matching/memory game designed for kids of two and up. You can play in pairs, three or four people and there are various ways to make the game harder or easier…
