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
Part of the reason I started blogging was because I wanted to record Autumn’s childhood. It was apparent even in the very early days that this is a journey that goes by so fast. I can hardly believe I have a two year old already! When I was contacted about The Book Of You, I thought it was such a wonderful way to record your child’s childhood. So many books only cover the baby and toddler years, or at best, up to the end of primary school. 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.
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed anything techy, so I leapt at the opportunity to try the Utopia 360° Elite Edition VR Headset with HD Stereo Headphones. Virtual reality is something that’s really taken off over the last few years and has been used in advertising and even featured in music videos.
I’ve used Google Cardboard at work when testing panoramas created by the software, but of course one of its main uses is for gaming. There are plenty of games you can buy from the App Store or Play store, many of which are free! View Post
In all likelihood you’ll be shopping for a present for someone who’s a mum this Christmas. Whether it’s your own mum, or a friend who is a mum, it’s quite likely that she’s pretty stressed! Whilst Christmas is a fun time of year, it’s often the mums in our families that go to the most effort to make it what it is. Therefore, I’ve put together a list of gift ideas that will help her de-stress once everything is done and dusted for another year.
