Monster Truck Smash-Ups

Mr Squishy is your typical little boy.  He loves cars, trucks, trains and anything that belongs to his older sisters because if it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for him not to mention it’s fun being chased around the house apparently with them in pursuit screaming at him. Squishy was fortunate enough to…

Paw Patrol Trainers from MotherCare

Mr Squishy is the very proud owner of some cute little Paw Patrol trainers that I bought for him on a shopping trip to Mothercare a few months back.  I had planned to post about my shopping haul at the time but with so much going on as always I never had the opportunity until…

Air Wars Battle Drones

One of the best things about my job is that I get to play with some super cool toys. It helps that I am a big kid at heart so I can normally predict exactly what the children will think before they review something – making product screening so much easier. One toy that I…

Slime Time!!!

My girls love to play with slime.  We used to get these teeny tiny plastic eggs full with the gooey stuff which they loved and more recently they have been trying to make their own. My fridge has been filled with little pots of this and that with and without glitter and to be honest…

An exciting time of the year for mini ones especially those that love dressing up and watching scary children’s movies and go trick or treating.  Mr Squishy came along with us trick or treating for the first time last year and he had the most amazing time. To get into the Halloween…

But, is that everything your children will need? Recently I wrote about Giving Children That Competitive Edge and wanted to follow that post up with…

My First Scalextric

I was recently offered a My First Scalextric to give to Mr Squishy to review.  I thought he was going to pop when he first opened the box as he didn’t have a clue what was inside he just knew there was a big box for him.  I remember my brother having one of these…

Num Noms Series 4 Dessert Tray

For those that missed it Num Noms series 4 have hit the supermarket shelves.  These are one of the most popular collectables on the market for anyone that was not aware although I am guessing most of you with children will be fully clued up and will probably have a healthy stock of these at…

Learning Times Tables The Fun Way!

I am really disappointed in the level of teaching at our school.  My eldest started Year 3 knowing almost all of her times tables due to a lot of hard work over the summer holidays in 2016, by the time she finished the school year in 2017 she barely knew half of them.  Times tables are…
