Ad| Spidey Web Crawler RC Review

In my house, if it’s got a remote control and wheels it’s an instant hit, and as big fans of Spidey and His Amazing Friends, you can imagine how much excitement this Spidey Web Crawler caused in the Wright household!  The remote control has two easy-to-use buttons, forward-straight and backward-curve. I won’t lie, I found it really hard to get …

AD| Etsy Christmas Giftguide 2022!

It’s that time of the year where I spend all my wages on Etsy, shopping for every member of my family, and adding hundreds of items to my own personal Wishlist too. I truly believe that you can find something for everyone on Etsy and know that you’re supporting small creatives too. Here are some of the coolest things I’ve found recently.

Ad| Stickle Bricks

I have such vivid memories of being a child, playing with Stickle Bricks. I can literally feel them in my hands while I sat on the floor in my childhood bedroom, building my own little spikey-world. So when this little box of Stickle Bricks came to the door (“for the children”) I was instantly transported back and the nostalgia was strong because the set was identical to the one I had as a child.

AD| Paint Pop Paint Sticks

Look, I like to think I’m a fun Mum. The set-up-a-Tuff-Tray-of-messy-play kinda Mum. The spends-far-too-long-cutting-shapes-out-of-fruit-for-a-picnic kinda Mum – and I love getting creative with the kids. But there is something about the absolute faff of getting out the paints that fills me with dread. I always squeeze too much into the pallet, water always gets spilt, the paper is so …

#Ad Celebrating Earth Day with Eco Plush Toys

I’d like to think we’re a pretty eco family. We’re vegan, we use cloth nappies, we do our best. But one thing I think can be easy to fall down on, is toys. So many toys are made of plastic and the guilt is real. So when we were sent these amazing Eco Plush Toys, to celebrate Earth Day on 22nd April, and found out that they are made from 100% recycled material, we were really excited.

Alternative Gifts for Easter 2022

It’s almost Easter and I’ve been hanging ridiculous carrot bunting along my fireplace and looking up some fun Easter crafts for the kids to fill up the holidays. However, I’ll be honest. Ruben still has a few Easter eggs left over from last year, and Indiana can’t have normal chocolate because he has an allergy to cows’ milk protein – plus Steven & I are vegan, so I think we’ll leave the chocolate egg buying to the grandparents.

#AD Peppa Pig Weebles Review

“Weebles Wobble but they don’t fall down!”- This has always been ingrained into my subconscious and sometimes I genuinely find myself just saying it out loud for no apparent reason. I never had any Weebles of my own, so when we had the chance to head to Smyths Toys Superstores and check out the new Peppa Pig Weebles, you better …

#AD: Cats Vs Pickles New Reversible Plushes!

Hey cool cats and pickles!  One thing I didn’t predict to be a big part of life with a 3 year old is kissing several squishy cats and cuddley pickles from his Cats Vs Pickles collection goodnight every night – and this boy has a lot. So imagine his absolute delight when we were gifted two of the amazing reversible …

AD: Toy Story 4 Plushies

My husband’s two favourite films are The Notebook and Toy Story. We’ve not yet introduced by two year old to Noah & Allie’s love story, but from the moment he first watched Toy Story, he was absolutely besotted. To the point that we spent a good 6 months watching the 4 films over and over and over and over and …
