Like most little kids the idea of a remote controlled car is a very exciting one! Arlo has never had a remote control car before, but we did recently get a Scalextric race track which introduced him to remote controlling, but with that the cars stay on the track and there is no aspect of steering involved!

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…

Review: Interactive Baby Wow Emma Doll

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…
