Baby Play Mat – Fisher-Price Newborn-to-Toddler Play Gym

Benjamin (and Isabella) have been putting the new Fisher-Price Newborn-to-Toddler Play Gym to the test and I think they’d safely say it’s brilliant. As soon as I had set the play gym up, my daughter and niece (both two and a half) were instantly drawn to it. I think it’s the bright colours and the fact that the legs are designed in the shape of animals. Once they noticed the balls, poor Benjamin didn’t have a chance! They were going {Read More}

smarTrike Dream Touch Steering 4 in 1 Trike

Lots of us would see going out on our bike as an activity for the sunny (or at least dry) days and I include myself in that but since receiving Isabella’s new smarTrike, I have to disagree with myself. In the last few weeks I’ve been out more with the smarTrike than I would have thought possible. So the smarTrike arrived sealed in clear cellophane wrapping so there was no hiding it from Isabella and as soon as she clocked {Read More}

Providence Climbing Frame

I wanted to buy a swing set or climbing frame that would last years rather than months and spent a long time researching which to buy. I wanted something that was obviously built to last, and had the space to grow with my daughter (And any subsequent children I may have). The Providence Climbing Frame seemed to tick all of the boxes; it had enough space to be versatile and wasn’t too big. It even came with a little table {Read More}

Winnie the Pooh Stack, Pour, Post ‘n’ Play

Winnie the Pooh Stack, Pour, Post ‘n’ Play set is 4 toys in 1. Costing  just £14.99, I think it’s great value for money and provides hours of fun for any young mess maker. Isabella loves stacking and building at the moment so stacking the cups on top of the honey pot before knocking them down again provides endless entertainment for her. She will quite happily amuse herself with this task for a good 15-20 minutes. The pouring ability of {Read More}

Dancing Pooh by Tomy

This Dancing Pooh is a great toy for my 11 month old. She is just in the stage of copying actions and dancing (oh ok bobbing) and Winnie the Pooh is a perfect dancing companion for when I’m all danced out. When I first pushed his hand and made Pooh talk, Isabella was a little unsure, but as we danced along to Pooh Bear (yes myself and my husband were bobbing up and down and touching the ground!) she lost {Read More}

Natures Purest

If you have a baby, or know someone who does, you really MUST check out this lovely company naturespurest! Their products are made from 100% Organic Cotton (and they actually mean 100% Organic Cotton) meaning they don’t use any pesticides, chemicals or dyes either. Not only does this mean it’s great for the environment and your baby’s skin but I personally think it makes the products look more beautiful. I don’t know what it is about natural colours but I {Read More}

Lamaze Toys – Brilliant fun from birth

I have always loved Lamaze toys, even before I had a baby. They are so bright and attractive that I want to play with them, let along the babies. There are so many beautiful and stimulating toys available from Lamaze but I am going to write about four in particular. Lamaze Foot Finder and Wrist Rattle Set These are a lovely set and perfect for little hands and feet. They can be used from newborn but I personally feel they {Read More}

Tiny Love Sunny Stroll Tiny Princess Arch

Now my daughter is that much older, a ride in the car doesn’t automatically mean a cheeky nap. Instead it seems that she now just gets frustrated as all she can see is the back of a seat. I tried giving her various toys to play with for the drive and they either got dropped, thrown or didn’t stay in place on the car seat handle; every car ride that was longer than 5 minutes inevitably ended with a moaning {Read More}

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Developmental Toy

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Developmental Toy is brilliant and it makes a fantastic gift idea. He is the perfect present for any newborn baby +. This soft toy is vibrant and eye-catching with lots of different textures, beads and tags for little hands to explore. The Very Hungry Caterpillar Developmental Caterpillar has a beautiful green and blue body which contrasts well helping even newborns see the difference. Each section of the caterpillar’s body either crinkles, squeaks or has beads or {Read More}

Fisher-Price Kick N Play Piano Gym

WOW – I wish I had bought one of these sooner. The Fisher-Price Kick N Play Piano is absolutely brilliant; my daughter, now four months old, can’t get enough of it. We already had a play gym (it had a double arch, 5-6 soft toys that dangle from it and it played nursery rhymes) but Isabella would only seem entertained with it for five minutes at a time. Then I came across this amazing play gym. Isabella absolutely loves being {Read More}
