Perfecting The Perfect Pony Tail With The My Little Pony Rainbow Dash Styling Head

Our five-year old diva E is all about the glitz and the glam. Not only is she mental about ‘makeup’ but she’s also potty about her ponies, by which I mean she adores My Little Pony with a passion.

As you can imagine, E was therefore elated to receive a wonderful ‘My Little Pony Rainbow Dash Styling Head‘ to review.

Reviewing & Playing With The Peppa Pig Cash Register

Imitation and copying through role play is a valuable method of learning for your children. As our daughter E was brought up with having shop keepers as Grandparents, it was inevitable that she’d want for her very own shopping trolley, stock, shelves and of course – a till!

Whilst E has spent years playing with a rather dated ELC till, we were recently sent a rather fabulous update – the Peppa Pig Cash Register!

The Peppa Pig Cash Register

This fabulously funky till features all the accessories any little one requires for playing shop keeper. Children are able to scan their items and listen for the ‘beep’, they can then calculate the cost of their shopping with the functioning calculator and pay their debt by using either ‘Peppa pounds’ or the bank card via a contactless beep function.…

Playing ‘PJ Masks Team Of Heroes’

My family and I regularly gather around the table to spend time playing board games together. We may well be surrounded by technology which can provide endless hours of gaming based entertainment but I’d much prefer to raise my children to play real games – by which I am referring to those games which are shared with real life people in a real situation. I think that games which offer a challenge without needing ‘charging’ are far more beneficial to our children and so whenever we have the time and opportunity, I make a point of getting out a game to play.…

Slick Skating With The Crisp Blaster Stunt Scooter

My husband and I have been into balance based sports such as skating, boarding, scooting and skiing since we were children. We would therefore like to encourage our little ones to follow in our footsteps and do so by taking the kids along to a local roller disco each week, where we spend time skating, scooting and generally raising our adrenalin levels whilst having fun as a family.
