5 Great Winter Movies for Families

It’s National Popcorn Day today! What better excuse to snuggle under a blanket with a nice big bowl of popcorn and watch a movie together. School only goes until noon on Fridays, so Friday often ends up as our default movie afternoon. And if weekdays aren’t an option for you, there’s always the weekend. After […] Read more…

Review: Hama Beads Maxi

I have written before about how much my older son enjoys creating with fuse beads. Last year, we made fuse beads Christmas ornaments together, and in summer we made some fuse beads rainbow badges for Pride. But my younger boy never gets to join in, because the regular beads are recommended for ages 5+ and […] Read more…

My boys would love to have a pet, ideally a cat or a dog, but unfortunately their daddy is allergic to pretty much everything. So a goldfish somewhere down the line is probably the closest they are ever going to get to having a pet. Then I got thinking, maybe if they’re not going to […] Read more…

Review: Magic Maths Game

Today, I want to share a great little educational game with you. As I mentioned before, I was approached a while ago by Orchard Toys, to join their team of bloggers, so we have been testing some games for them. We previously reviewed Cheeky Monkeys for them, which was a big hit with the whole family, […] Read more…

Review: Power Rippers Racing & Battle Set

I have another toy review to share with you today – the Power Rippers 2-in-1 Competition Set – and I have to honestly say, this is the most excited I have been about any of the toys we have reviewed so far. I mean, the kids have been loving them all, but with this one, […] Read more…

Review: Cheeky Monkeys Game

As I’ve mentioned here on the blog before, we absolutely LOVE board games in our house. We have a whole cupboard full, including many favourites from when I was a child. So when I was contacted by Orchard Toys, asking if I would like to become an Orchard Toys blogger, I jumped at the chance! […] Read more…
