If you like a healthy dose of nostalgia, then Miffy books might be just the thing to introduce to your toddler or preschooler.

Kooshi: The children’s backpack with a soft toy friend

In January I was brave (or foolish?) enough to take my two along to the annual Toy Fair. One of the many brands that we met there was Kooshi, who make a range of backpacks for children with an integrated soft toy cushion. Honestly, I’ve never seen my small one …

In case you’ve not come across the Trunki brand before, they make a range travel accessories for children, including Trunki ride-on suitcases. Trunkis are made from very sturdy plastic – the same as an adult suitcase – and are suitable for children from age 3 up to 50kg! They’re small enough …

Having neglected to purchase one …

Paddington 2 review (I think I’ve got something in my eye)

Paddington 2 is out in cinemas this weekend (10th November), and we were lucky to be invited along to a special preview screening in London. Here, without further ado, is our Paddington 2 review! Along with my two and three year olds, we arrived into London and found the Soho …

A PJ Masks party: Celebrate new episodes of PJ Masks

PJ Masks is a huge hit in our house. With the kids, I mean. I don’t hate it, which is a bonus. We were invited up to Picturehouse Cinema in Leicester Square for an exciting PJ Masks Halloween party. Despite it being extra busy because of half term, and my …

Planning the perfect Disney princess party #DisneyParty

The idea of arranging and hosting a children’s birthday party strikes fear into my heart.  So far, I’ve got away with it; I’ve never held a birthday party for either of my children. I know, I am an awful parent. However I maintain that at least until the age of …
