Mix and match t shirts with Toogiez

| Children's style, Reviews, Toys & Gadgets

As you probably know, we do like our t shirts, and N’s also partial to his favourite toys, which he does frequently take to nursery.  They do quite often get left there – whether in his drawer or temporarily lost because he can’t remember where he left them.  But the new product Toogiez being launched, […] Read more…


Stunts and scooters – trying out the Zinc Chozen scooter

trying out an adult stunt scooter

N’s had his scooter since around his 2nd birthday. He always had a go on the ones (too big for him) at Baby Bounce, so I started him off with a My First Scooter which changed from 4-3-2 wheels. Great idea but really heavy scooter and doesn’t fold up like it’s meant to. I’ve always […] Read more…


What do children take to bed

taking teddies to bed

Soft toys, teddy bears, cars…what do children take to bed with them?  N has his favourite soft toys that he’s had since a baby – Peter Rabbit was his newborn present from his Gran, and he’s always loved it.  His taggy blanket I made him is a little grey and manky nowadays.  One red ribbon […] Read more…


Bags of room in a YuuTuu bag

yuutuu bag

I’m a big fan of bags – handbags, satchels, rucksacks…anything to cart around all the paraphernalia that we seem to need when going out and about.  Thankfully N’s not at the stage of wanting to have his own bag for a simple shopping trip, and on longer trips I tend to have the rucksack.  But […] Read more…

chasing the storm clouds by gator

N’s been really lucky this week…he’s finally inherited his cousins’ John Deere Gator.  The Gator’s been going a long time as it was a freebie thrown in with a tractor purchase about 9 years ago.  It’s been used by 2 of N’s cousins, and now the 5 year old has passed it on to N. […] Read more…

plan toys golf set

We’ve recently been sent another Plan Toys set to review as Toadtesters for The Toadstool; this one is the new single mini golf set.  So far, we’ve been really impressed with all the Plan Toys we’ve played with and this follows the same theme. As with all Plan Toys, the wood is sustainable, and the […] Read more…


Forever blowing bubbles

splat the bubble

I’ve loved seeing all the bubble photos and play over the last few weeks, and fancied getting the bubbles out at home.  Obviously if your toddler goes to any birthday party, then you’re bound to have a bottle of bubbles around the house. We have several, but N’s still a bit rubbish at blowing bubbles.  […] Read more…


Haba’s Memo in the Zoo – a classic memory game

Haba memo in the zoo - matching pairs game

When we received Haba’s Memo in the Zoo game to review, I thought it would be the perfect game for N.  He likes playing memory games on apps, so having the tiles in real life would be a good alternative. The game is really good quality, as I’ve come to expect from Haba.  The tiles […] Read more…


Home, farm and garden play – Ezy Roller play

| On the farm, Toys & Gadgets


I had grand plans for the Easter weekend.  I’d taken the Thursday off work to tie in with N being off nursery, so had planned going to National Trust properties, doing various Easter events/trails and the like. Instead, N decided on Thursday morning that he would be wearing pants.  So, it’s great that he’s finally […] Read more…
