We’re big fans of Trunki in this house. We have had Ava’s Trixie Trunki suitcase¬†since she was really little, and always used it for nights away, and I have also bought a couple for friends as new baby gifts. They make a lovely present, as they are fun for kids whilst being useful for the parents too. Now Trunki have added further to their collection of products, with the brand new Trunki EAT range – foodie travel accessories, including drinks… View Post

A couple of days ago my little girl turned five. I said the same thing last year, but five years old seems so much older than four. This was the year she started school, has come on leaps and bounds with her writing and can now read a little bit.

This one is a newborn… View Post

I have no idea how one particular thing becomes popular with kids each year, and I’m always clueless until I see people posting about them on Facebook. The lovely ‘If I Were a Toy’ TV ad has captured the imagination and excitement of adults and children alike with the latest and greatest toys from… View Post

As a child I absolutely loved Christmas and as an adult I still do. As you get older though Christmas tends to lose it’s charm a little bit and becomes less magical. However once you have a child that magic is really reignited as you see Christmas and the excitement of it through your child’s eyes. It’s lovely. Over the past couple of years I have bought Ava a letter from Father Christmas. I think they make a lovely keepsake… View Post
