Ha!     Sticky Box Car Kit £15 from www.stickibox.com It’s long been a Christmas joke that kids love playing with boxes as much as, if not more than with the presents...

Stick Man theatre review

Stick Man theatre Review at Leicester Square theatre Being a mum of four, I am a huge fan of Julia Donaldson and her fabulous books. The Gruffalo may as well have taken residence in our playroom given the books, puzzles and stationery we have! But, if I am being honest, I have always had reservations about putting these books onto the stage. They live best in children’s imaginations, in the very personal versions we as parents help create for our children with our pretend voices and actions when we read these tales. And isn’t that the whole...

Pognae No.5 Baby Carrier Review

Pognae No.5 Baby Carrier Review The Pognae No.5 baby carrier is absolutely exceptional. I’ve used many slings, wraps and carriers with my children, but this is by far the best designed and most functional baby carrier I’ve come across. The box it’s packaged in is super stylish, and the carrier itself comes in a plastic drawstring bag. My Pognae is the ‘red wine’ colour, which is a lovely light red with fine dark red stripes running through it. The internal fabric is a mixture of cream, and black and grey geometric ‘scandi’ style print....

Orchard Toys latest Match & Spell reviewed!

Orchard Toys Match and Spell Review As I have said before, I believe learning through play is the best way to teach a young child a new skill.  When I learnt to read, phonics were not invented.  You just had to learn to recognise the word.  When my older two children learnt to read, phonics were like a foreign language to me.  A number of years on and now Little J is learning to read and spell, phonics flow much more easily.  I’ve been able to teach them to him from an early age – some might say too early, he’s been able to spell his eight...

Orchard Toys latest range reviewed!

What’s The Time, Mr Wolf? I am a firm believer in teaching young children through play, and have been particularly stumped recently on how to make telling the time fun.  I’ve tried the wooden clock, but couldn’t devise a way to make the difficult task of learning that three also means 15 minutes and quarter past stick without it being boring or using the words, “it just is!”  My worries were taken away when the opportunity came up to review Orchard Toys new game. Orchard Toys describe What’s the Time Mr Wolf as “a great board game...

Ravensburger – Munich 1000 piece puzzle review

Ravensburger – Munich 1000 piece puzzle We love a puzzle in our house but they are mostly centred around the children, so it was really nice to have something for my husband and I to do in the evening that didn’t involve the Sky box or the laptop.  As the owner of a toy shop for preschoolers it was also nice to have something I could play with legitimately! I have always thought of Ravensburger as a quality brand (did you know they also own BRIO, another great brand?) and you could tell by the box and the thickness of the puzzle pieces that...

Our Day at The Scarecrow’s Wedding

Our Day at The Scarecrow’s Wedding Leicester Square Theatre, London I’m delighted to have had the chance to review the Scamp Theatre’s big-stage adaptation of author Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s children’s bestseller The Scarecrows’ Wedding. This came at a perfect time as it was just before my eldest son Shea’s 8th Birthday. As both of my sons have started their own little project of writing a book Shea & Rory’s Story’s this opportunity could not have been a better birthday treat. We all found this to be...

DodoPad Academic diaries for work and school

End of school gift idea for teacher! The end of the school year is upon us when, as parents, historically we tend to club together to give the class teacher and class assistant high street vouchers to spend but for us this year, it’s the final days of year 6 – the end of an era, and come September it’s secondary school – a whole new school for us. Saying goodbye to primary school is really quite difficult; no more class assemblies, birthday assemblies that go on for days, rained off sports days, school fairs, christmas...
