Fisher Price Dora And Friends Review

We are not the type of parents that believe that blue is for boys and pink is for girls, in fact we are the complete opposite. Even though we have two little monkeys you will find lots of pink toys in our home. We have a pink pram that little J takes his doll for a walk in, a pink picnic basket and a pink talking teapot. When we were asked to review the new range of Dora goodies from Fisher Price I obviously said yes because little J is a huge fan.


When we opened the box, three of the items instantly stood out and I knew little J would be really excited about them. The two dolls and the smartphone.

All the songs and theme tunes will have on-screen lyrics so your little ones can sing-along. Watch Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Blaze and The Monster Machines and of course Dora and Friends : Into The City.

My Stinky New School Giveaway

September is a hard month for most parents because it's the start of a new school year. Whether your child is starting a new nursery, school or even just moving up a year it can be tough. I always remember preparing big J for nursery and also preparing myself because my little boy wouldn't be with me anymore.

We talked about it and also read books that were designed to help our children understand that starting school is a good thing and they will make lots of friends.


We have been reading My Stinky New School by Rebecca Elliott and it would be a perfect read for those who have children who are a little unsure about what a new school will bring.

Win A Family Ticket to Toytopia


I am so excited to announce that I am an Official Mummy Blogger for Toytopia. It's obvious from our blog that we love toys here so it will be so much fun to visit a Toy Exhibition. I have never attended anything like this before so I have no idea what to expect but it sounds good. Daddy and big J went to a game event last year which is very similar and they still talk about that now.

Welcome to Week 11 of Parenting - Toddlers, Teens and Everything In-between. 

I have a new badge, yay. 

How is everyone this week? I am so ready for the summer holidays to begin. This term seems to have dragged and I just can't wait for the children to break up from school. Is anyone going away this summer?

Ravensburger Statue Of Liberty 3D Puzzle Review

We recently received Ravensburger Statue Of Liberty 3D Puzzle and we couldn't wait to complete it. This is our third 3D puzzle from the range and probably my favourite so far. I say so far because we are planning to collect them all because not only are they fun to complete but they look amazing and now take pride of place in my living room.


The Statue Of Liberty 3D Puzzle only has 108 pieces so over 100 less than we were used to. I thought the actual statue would be a puzzle but she is a figure, the puzzle makes up the base.
