ABBA You Can Dance

ABBA You Can Dance

These dance games tend to fall on one of two points,either the selection of music or the dance mechanic. If you’re an ABBA fan, you don’t need to read much further, the dance mechanic is brilliant and you should buy it for parties, and the odd quiet Tuesday night in. Since we received ABBA You Can […]

Playmobil Falcon Knights Castle

Playmobil Falcon Knights Castle

We nearly jumped for joy when as a family we were asked to join the Playmobil brand ambassador scheme. I love Playmobil mainly because they actually do realistic Roman Soldiers and gladiators ( I can’t help myself from buying them). The boy likes to play with his knights battlement set and Fifi has a rather […]

Air Total Home C89-MA-T Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner

I’m part of the Vax Voice team which means I get the chance to test out Vax products and provide a fair report back to you on them. A few months ago we tried their carpet cleaner and I have to say this has proved absolutely invaluable especially after a little boy sickness episode *ahem*. […]

Pillow Pets

Pillow Pets

We were asked if we would like to do a review for Pillow Pets a few weeks ago. Before then I had never heard of them, not surprising really since they are only just being launched in the UK this spring. Originally developed by an American mum in 2003 (which sounds like last week but […]

Barfoots’ Sweetcorn Bites

Barfoots’ Sweetcorn Bites

I am always looking for ways to try and get more vegetables into my carb-crazed baby’s diet, so I was excited to be asked to review Barfoots’ new Sweetcorn Bites. It is a pretty simple idea really, they are literally just small-hand-sized pieces of corn on the cob, prepared, cut up and ready to cook. […]

Lindt Lindor Collection Gift Box

Lindt Lindor Collection Gift Box

I must say, when I was asked if I’d like to review the new Lindor Collection Gift Box in time for Mothers Day (the 18th March, write it down now!), I pretty much bit their hand off. Really and truly, Lindor are my go-to chocolates to give anyone, including myself. I just LOVE them, every […]

Byron Bay Cookie Company Cookies

Byron Bay Cookie Company Cookies

Hot on the heels of reviewing mother’s day chocolates, I was asked if I would also like to write a review for Byron Bay Cookies. So much for the new year diet… I was amazed when the box arrived from Byron Bay (not Australia) filled with every flavour of cookie you could imagine. This was […]

Raa Raa The Noisy Lion Interactive Playset

Raa Raa The Noisy Lion Interactive Playset

Raa Raa the Noisy Lion is one of Cbeebies newer characters. With the playset you get a Raa Raa interactive figure and TreeHouse with Smartspot system, as well as Raa Raa’s car. We weren’t able to test the interaction as you need other figures in the range for this to happen but we understand that the […]

Mama Never Told Me books by Emily Van Do

Mama Never Told Me books by Emily Van Do

The “Mama Never Told Me” books are based on real comments made to Emily Van Do during her pregnancy and early days of motherhood, with cartoon illustrations by g.f. Newland. You can tell from the image on the cover that these are not books about being a yummy mummy! As a mummy who spends a […]

Blossom Mother and Child

Whilst I was pregnant I was offered a fair amount of maternity clothes to review, however I was quite selective and only picked things which I would have bought myself given the chance. One of the shops which I was genuinely thrilled to be asked to review some clothes from was Blossom Mother and Child. […]
