Glimmies, It’s A Kind Of Magic!

The Magic Of Play

We all love to have a little bit of magic in our lives, this especially applies to children as they are yet to fully understand the World in which they live and the concepts of Science.

To actually witness magic in the making is somewhat of a thrill. I myself love to watch a good magic trick and since having children have learnt how to perform a few of my own tricks to stun and amaze my little ones.

As a child light can be a fairly magical concept, as we wake each morning the sun rises and as we settle down to sleep the sun sets making way for the moon to cast its subtle glow.…

The Finding Dory Nemo And Friends AquaBeads Set Review

I Am An AquaBeader!

I am very pleased to tell you that I was recently chosen to be a part of the ‘Aquabeaders’ online group. As part of this I will be sharing and promoting a wide range of Aquabeads sets and products with you, my wonderful readers.

Aquabeads are small, coloured beads which when sprayed with water become sticky and can mould together to create a 2D design. There are a range of similar products including Hama Beads and Hot Beads also on the market but they require a hot iron to bond the beads together and are therefore far less suitable for young children.…

Happy #UnBoxing Day With Num-Noms

We were recently asked to take part in the Num-Noms #UnboxingDay campaign which of course we agreed to and were then very kindly sent the latest packs from Series 3.1 and the all new Series 1 Lights edition Num-Noms to unwrap and review.

To make the whole experience a little more authentic I decided to send the Num-Noms Santa’s way to be wrapped and opened on the big day along with E’s other parcels. E was rather delighted upon opening her Num-Noms as you will see in the video below.

The Benefits Of Board Games – What A Performance!

The Benefits Of Board Games

We have a cupboard in the living room filled to the rafters with board games, they are such a simple yet effective way to spend time together as a family. Our family has a busy schedule with work, school, nursery and a whole host of extra curricular activities, I often feel that there is little time for us to get together and relax, chat, giggle, and simply enjoy being a family.

Board games are a fantastic tool for the promotion of communication, providing a relaxing atmosphere to laugh, share stories and to let off some steam.…

Interaction At Its Best With The Baby Born Interactive Unicorn

E is currently going through the ‘My Little Pony’ phase, she loves anything horse or unicorn related especially if it happens to be pink or glittery. Oh how she loves anything that glitters… god help us when she’s older and it’s jewellery that takes her fancy!

 

The Baby Born Interactive Unicorn

We were recently sent the ‘Baby Born Interactive Unicorn‘ from Zapf Creation to have a play with, try out and to share on this here blog.

Upon arrival, I was quite surprised by the sheer size of the parcel, I wasn’t expecting the Unicorn to be quite as large as it is and soon realised that this was one occasion when the phrase ‘the bigger the better’ certainly applied.…
