I’ve been aware of Wilberry’s soft toys for some time now, as they sell them in a shop called Francis Iles which is local to me and is featured in my Kent Christmas shopping guide. These toys are made using beautiful materials and look and feel good quality. However, they are really affordable prices. Designed and produced by The Puppet Company, a new range called Wilberry Dancers has recently been released. View Post
When you first have your children, you get home from the hospital and wonder what on earth you’re supposed to do next! You’re responsible for this tiny little scrap of life in every way and all you want to do is wrap them up in cotton wool and never let harm come anywhere near them.
As they grow older and start to explore the world a bit more and they do come up against adverse events, discomfort, illness and even meanness from other children. It hurts you even more than it hurts them and you’ll do anything to make things better. The good news is that you’re probably doing just great already simply by being there.
Even better news is that you can turn your home into a safe haven for your children to come back to at the end of each day and, when they’re older, whenever adversity strikes. View Post
Do your children ever want to play with snow, but it’s one of the 361 days of the year that there isn’t snow on the ground? Well, there is a solution! Floof is white like snow, and although it has a different texture, you can have lots of the same kind of fun with it! It’s soft, squashy and moldable, without the melting problem. You can even make snowballs and have snowball fights with it if you want to! I found out about Floof at the Blog On Toys conference last month and over the last couple of weeks Autumn and I have been putting it to the test.
