Bunny Jump Game | REVIEW

We are fans of a good ‘board’ game in this house – extra points if its a game that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Having children that range from age 2 and a half to 7 and a half, this can be a pretty big ask. We were very excited to receive Bunny Jump to try out. It is actually suitable from age 5 upwards but Mason was actually quite happy playing it with a bit of help from his older siblings.  The official tag line of the game is ‘Safely sitting on top of his burrow, the…

Project MC² Experiment Doll | REVIEW

Does anyone else with a seven year old ever feel like they have a mini teenager? Izzie is giving me some good glimpses of what the future holds – she’s obsessed with doing her hair, and what she wears already – although she does still let me pick her clothes for the most part. Most recently she has been utterly obsessed with the Netflix show MC2 – a show about a group of teenage girls who work for a female government organisation who are trying to protect the world. The series is very ‘geek chic’ – the girls all have…

Personalised Phone Cover from Go Customized | Review

I was recently asked to create a personalised phone case from Go Customized. They have a huge range on their websites for all different types of pohone from Apple to Samsung to HTC. It may be having young children, it may be the job that I do, but I love taking photos. Our house isn’t huge and so I struggle finding room to display my favourite ones. My phone is never far from my hand and I would quite honestly be lost without it. Therefore keeping it in one piece is important. I’ve had various phone cases in the past…

Messy Me Review | Gorgeous Oilcloth Products for Children

The one thing that the Little Brushneen’s are always good at is getting messy. Honestly, by 3pm you would think that I’d sent them down a mine rather than to school each day. We are huge fans of messy play and craft – well I say we, the kids mainly. I enjoy it when it’s happening, and love that the kids enjoy it but then hate the mess and washing of the clothes afterwards. I have at points genuinely thought of taking out shares in stain removers as we go through so many. As Izzie and Ollie have got older…

Num Noms #SURPRISEINAJAR | REVIEW

If you have a child a similar age to Izzie (7 going on 17 sometimes) you will probably have heard of NumNoms. If you haven’t, you must have been living under a rock! Izzie is a big fan of any toy that you can collect. She regularly finds a new collection and manages to con my mum into buying her new ones on her weekly shop – the benefits of being the first born grandchild obviously. Lately NumNoms have been the favourite and I can see why. They are collectible, cute and smell lovely. Izzie has also been loving the…

SRI Educational Wooden Toys Review

All my children ave been animal obsessed – before they could say the names of the animals, they could make the noises that they make. We have a ridiculous collection of soft toys animals, and various books and plastic toys featuring different animals, but we have never ad any wooden ones. I love wooden toys – they can literally last for generations and they are timeless – my children love to play with toys that me and my brother played with as kids.  Imagine their delight when they opened a lovely parcel from SRI Toys  containing some lovely wooden animal toys.…
