Our Daughter, The Doll Devotee
My daughter E is the typical ‘girly girl’, she loves anything glittery, fluffy or pink and seems to take great pleasure in playing with stereotypical little girls toys including dolls which she has continuously collected throughout the years.
We have had almost every doll imaginable: realistic baby dolls, Barbie dolls, dolls that can be dressed up, dolls that cry, dolls that pee and now we have the doll that can poop! Seriously…

Quality Is Key With Children’s Clothing
If there’s one thing that I feel strongly about when it comes to clothing for our children it is ensuring that the clothes which they wear are high quality. Kids clothing needs to be hard-wearing and able to withstand the test of time, being regularly washed and occasionally taking a quick spin in the tumble dryer when needs must.
E was recently sent two rather beautiful pieces of clothing (a reversible, long-sleeved top and a pair of pants) from Sense Organics to wear, share and review.
Sense Organics are pioneers in organic textile manufacturing, Established as a brand in Germany for over eighteen years, Sense Organics supply major European department and natural health stores with a range of organic, fair trade, vegan, and cruelty free products.…
As girls tend to do, E has become ever so slightly ‘Barbie obsessed’. She now has about five Barbie style dolls all of which she loves dearly, including her new ‘Ember Evergreen Project MC 2 Experiment Doll’ which was very kindly sent to us to review.
What Is Project MC2?

Revolving around the fields of STEAM, McKeyla McAlister and her friends work for a government organisation called NOV8 (pronounced ‘Innovate’), a highly secretive , girly group who are on a mission to save the World.…
The weather’s miserable, E has been choked up with the latest bug doing the rounds and we’ve started suffering with four wall syndrome. What better way to pass the time than to play a few board games?
Over the years we’ve collected a rather large amount of board games which we store in what we now refer to as our ‘Bored Cupboard’ because if your ever feeling bored you’re sure to find something to entertain you within the bored cupboard!
We were recently sent the ‘Googly Eyes’ board game from University Games to rate, review and add to our ‘cupboard collection’.…
Each Sunday we make time to sit down together as a family and to either watch a movie or to play a board game. Rather than moping over the weekend coming to a close, we try to distract ourselves from the week ahead with some rest and relaxation as a family.
Playing board games is hugely beneficial to all involved, especially children. Board games can teach children a vast array of both simple and complex life skills including:
Learning to take turns
Building patience and understanding of others
Learning how to accept loss
Building concentration skills
Learning how to read others facial expressions and body language
Building tactical thinking skills
Learning how to deal with competition
Exercising and keeping the brain active
How to deal with pressure and time limits
Learning how to work effectively as a team member
