Review: Cheeky Monkeys Game [AD]

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…

Review: Mr Dusty the Garbage Truck [AD]

Imagine you are 3 years old and absolutely LOVE garbage trucks (yup, never understood this obsession myself, but apparently it’s a thing among kids). Then one day, you come home from nursery and there’s a humungous garbage truck sitting in the middle of your bedroom, waiting for you to play with it. Not only that, […] Read more…

Halloween Movies To Watch With Younger Kids

It’s getting to that time of year, where you like to snuggle down with a bowl of popcorn and a good movie. Although we are very much a “there’s no such thing as bad weather” kind of family, we do have weekends where we’ll chose a cosy family movie session over braving the tempestuous Scottish […] Read more…

Review: University Games Bundle [AD]

As I have mentioned here on the blog before, I come from a family of board game lovers and we are big board game fans in our house. I was therefore delighted to be given the chance to review a bundle from University Games, who had presented a range of their games at the BlogOn […] Read more…

Flotti Karotti – the Jumping Carrot Game

With all the rain we’ve been having this summer, both in Berlin and in Edinburgh, our board games have been getting a good work out. We always find that a round of board games is perfect for chasing away the rainy day blues, and there is one game that is a stand out favourite with […] Read more…

Our Favourite Kids TV Shows

After opening that whole screen time can of worms the other week, when I shared some of our favourite toddler apps with you, I thought I’d return to the topic and address the other side of screen time: tv shows. While there are certainly a lot of rubbish or questionable tv shows produced for kids out […] Read more…

Great Apps for Toddlers

Screen time is a contentious topic amongst parents, but let’s face it, sometimes the digital baby sitter can be a life saver, whether it’s on a long train or plane ride, to entertain a sick kiddo stuck in bed, or just – and I’m being totally honest here – to get the kids out from […] Read more…

Medieval Fun at Berlin’s Domäne Dahlem

Last weekend we visited  Domäne Dahlem again – a working farm and museum in the south if Berlin – this time to attend their Medieval Festival. But first we made some quick Knights’ costumes so the boys could dress for the occasion. Edit: I have now shared a tutorial showing you how to make these! […] Read more…

Berlin’s Long Night of Museums

I still need to tell you about Berlin’s ‘Lange Nacht der Museen’ (Long Night of Museums) that Oskar and I attended last weekend! You may or may not know, that Berlin was where the whole ‘long night of museums’ idea started – museums all across the city open their doors all through the night, many of them putting […] Read more…

Great Board Games for Kids age 2+

The first week of our summer holiday has been marked by endless rain. We’ve been outside in our rain gear, gone to the cinema, and been for a treat in the local ice cream parlour, but eventually cabin fever starts to set in. Time to break out some board games. We started playing board games […] Read more…

Dandelions & Childhood Heroes

It’s not been a great start to the year, as far as losing idols and heroes is concerned. First David Bowie and Alan Rickman in quick succession, then Terry Wogan a couple of weeks later. And now, Peter Lustig. One of the biggest – if not *the* biggest – heroes of my childhood. If you don’t […] Read more…
