DKL Hama Beads Hans Christian Andersen Kit 29/05/2012

There once was an ugly duckling with feathers all plastic and melted!

DKL Hama Beads Hans Christian Andersen Kit When I was younger my sisters and I would spend hours creating pictures with Hama beads, we had quite a collection of coloured beads and pegs boards and we'd see who could make the most unusual designs, I won that competition with my Sporty Spice, anyway many years on I have a daughter of my own and have introduced her to the Hama Beads range, we still had a vast collection of our original beads and boards but also bought her some kits of her own, she recieved the Hans Christian Andersen kit recently as a gift from a friend for her birthday. Hama Beads are basically small plastic cylinder shaped beads that come in a wide range of colours as well as glow in the dark ones, glittery ones.....all colours you could possibly imagine and more! The idea of them is to create a design on one of the white peg boards by placing each bead over a small white spike, board shapes include squares, hearts, octagons etc....of various sizes and you can create all sorts of designs by either following a guide book or free styling. Once your design is complete you use the special paper (or some greaseproof cooking paoer) to cover the design and iron over it melting the beads and fixing them into your design. The Hans Christian Anderson kit comes with a square peg board, 8 stands, an instruction book and guide sheet, 1 sheet of ironing paper, a spool of cotton, a hoop to create a small mobile and 4000 beads in a range of colours including red, yellow, blue, white, grey, black, green, brown and pink. ...

Spin Master Zoobles Spring to Life Hairdoobles Collection 20/05/2012

Bunny-Dooble our Hairdooble Zooble

Spin Master Zoobles Spring to Life Hairdoobles Collection My little girl is constantly coming home from school with "swapsies" her hair clips gone in place of a friends alice band or ribbons temporarily traded for a toy of some sort, one such swapsie was for a Zooble, a toy I'd seen advertised but never actually seen in person, she was absolutely in love with it and was immediately asking to write it on her Christmas list....despite it only being March! I knew I would soon have a parents evening with her teacher and always treat the kiddies to a reward if they get a good report so I headed out and bought a Zooble of her very own, fortunately for her she had been a star pupil and I was more then happy to let her have her treat. Zoobles in essence are strange little plastic balls around the size of a gobstopper that, when you put them against metal a magnet in their bottoms makes them unfold and pop out, like a very basic, slightly psycadelic, odd looking animal transformer. They have eyes and limbs, some have ears, others have beaks, they're always brightly coloured and usually decorated in some kind of pattern, the Zooble my daughter had originally bought home was bright yellow with a strange green tribal pattern and looked like a bird but the range in styles is vast. The Zooble I purchased was from the Hairdoobles range, the same size and style as a regular Zooble but with accessories, I was given 3 options in the shop, one was green so I immediately ruled it out but there was also a purple elephant and a pink bunny, as cute as the ...

Mattel Barbie Fashionistas in the Spotlight Glam Doll 16/05/2012

Wanna be a fashionista!

Mattel Barbie Fashionistas in the Spotlight Glam Doll Having a little girl who loves all things pink and pretty it's inevitable that one of the toys she'll enjoy playing with will be Barbies and other fashion dolls, usually Barbies are quite expensive but when I saw this particular doll at a bargain price and a few weeks before my little girls birthday I simply couldn't resist. Barbie is a long running and very popular fashion doll range by Mattel, the Fashionista range is one of the more recent branches of the doll line focussing on glamorous and fashionable clothes and styles. In the "In The Spotlight" singing doll range there are 3 options, there's "Cute" who has pink hair, "Sassy" who's a brunette and then there's the doll my daughter has "Glam" who's the traditional Barbie style with blonde hair, each doll comes with a microphone stand accessory and has a push button which sets off a small song and flashing lights on the dolls torso, most of the other Fasionista dolls are basic fashion dolls unlike the 3 from the "In the spotlight" range. Glam Barbie is a lovely quality doll as all Barbies tend to be, because of the popstar image she has and the idea that she's obviously meant to be played with as a performer she not only has moveable arms, legs and head but she also has articulated elbows, wrists, knees and ankles allowing you to put her in different poses and make her look like she's dancing or modeling. She has the traditional pretty Barbie face which is made up with sparkly eye shadow and lipstick and she has beautiful ...

Ladybird Maisie Cot 15/05/2012

Baby will sleep soundly in Maisie night and day-sie!

Ladybird Maisie Cot Having had my 4th child recently I found myself faced with a dilemma, though he started out a tiny little bundle he grew quickly and was soon bumping into the sides of his swinging crib which would wake him up in turn disturbing myself and my other children frequently in the night, I did not want to co-sleep with him in my bed, obviously couldn't keep him in his crib much longer but putting up our cot bed would mean putting him in a seperate room with his brothers as there was not enough space in my room....not an ideal option considering the eldest spends each night fidgeting and wimpering thanks to excema and my 3 year old is more then likely to either climb into the cot alongside the baby or kindly fill it up with toys for him to play with, so I found myself looking for a standard cot that I could squeeze my room in with me. Being on a tight budget considering he is my 4th (and final) child I decided to go with the Ladybird Maisie cot. The Maisie cot is a pine framed cot with slat sides and ends and a basic hard board base, it has 3 height levels for the base meaning that you can have your little one on the highest level when they're tiny but lower it down as they grow and become more mobile, the sides are fixed rather then "drop side" they have teething covers on the rails and with measurements of 124x66x92cm it is fair enough sized for a little one to grow, in fact I'd say you could easily go from birth up to 2 years old or more as long as your child is happy with the ...

O'Baby 2 in 1 Walker 06/09/2009

Rocking & Rolling

O'Baby 2 in 1 Walker Having 2 children already meant that when I was expecting my third child I already had most of the equipment I would need for him, cots, prams, baths etc…… but I was determined to have a few things that would be new, just for him and so I started looking into purchasing a new baby walker, that way our old one could stay at my mums house and he would always have something to play with while we were there but he could have the nice new one in our own home. I’ve never really been a fan of the stand and push along style walkers having seen far too many little ones fall and hurt themselves so specifically set out to find a sit in walker, when I saw the Obaby 2 in 1 walker I knew it was the one for me. The Obaby 2 in 1 walker is a baby rocker and a baby walker in one, available in pink, blue and yellow there’s one for whatever gender you have, we chose the yellow as at the time we were unsure as to the sex of our baby, it also means that we will be able to use it again in future should we chose to try for a baby 4. While quite bulky in size, as most sit in walkers are, it collapses down making it a little easier to store away, this feature also allows the walker to have several different height levels which is perfect for growing babies as it doesn’t restrict their leg movement as they get taller. Despite the size of the walker it’s lightweight enough to make moving it easy for mummy or daddy, when putting it away, or for baby when they’re pushing it along. When the walker ...
