We have a huge amount of Orchard Toys products in this house – all the children have grown up with them. We have games for all ages, and heaps of puzzles too, but until recently we didn’t have anything much for the youngest member of the family – she isn’t… View Post

Playmobil is a big favourite in our house, and the Fire Chief’s Car and Playmobil Pirates are played with most days. They seem to bridge the different ages well, with Gemma, Jacob and Max able to enjoy them equally.  We were recently sent the FulguriX from the Playmobil Super 4 range, which… View Post

We are huge Grobag fans. We have used them for all 4 children over the last 11 years, and they have aided safe and secure sleep over that time. I just wouldn’t use anything else now. They stop blankets being kicked off, they maintain body temperature and they have become… View Post

Living in Devon is fantastic – we have our pick of woodland walks, rivers and beaches to explore. However, living in Devon can also mean some unpredictable weather – and so good coats are an essential. Millets recently sent us some kids coats from the Berghaus boys and Berghaus girls collection.

Max is a huge fan of Blaze and the Monster Machines. He enjoys watching it on TV, and the toys always catch his eye if we are in a toy shop. We were recently sent the new Blaze Light & Launch Hyper Loop Playset, and Max couldn’t wait to get… View Post

We have been using Specsavers for a few years now. All of us regularly attend for eye tests, and both Gemma and Jacob have had glasses from there in the last 12 months. Up until now, I haven’t needed glasses, and have always walked away with a clean bill of… View Post

Eliza has slept in sleeping bags since she was born, and we used them for all our other children too. At 19 months, she now associates the sleeping bag with bedtime, and is always more than happy to snuggle up in hers ready for a sleep (she is so much… View Post

Max has suffered with eczema since he was tiny. Over the last 3 years we have tried so many different creams, lotions and diet changes to control it, without much success, until we cut dairy from his diet. This had a dramatic effect on his skin, and he has been… View Post

Cosatto are well known for their eye catching designs and practical baby gear. The new Cosatto WOW combines the two, but also has the option to go a little more understated if the really bright prints aren’t your thing. We chose the Posy design – a deep purple colour with matching… View Post
