Anyone who follows the blog will know how much we love this clothing company – amazing designs and the quality is obvious from the moment you open the carefully wrapped parcels. Available for both boys and girls with anything from leggings to harem pants to skirts to jumpers and dresses they literally have everything and more that you could want for your little one – don’t forget the matching headbands (those are our favourite!!!) The lovely Vicky who is the creator and maker of this gorgeous clothing is incredibly creative and is happy to adapt anything to suit your tastes.

‘Ted Wears Organic’ was born from my toddler needing to have practical clothes to play in that scream style in fabric that’s gorgeously soft and unique.I love simple but understated designs for kid’s play-wear with a dash of Scandi inspiration and this is where the Pick ‘n’ Mix Wardrobe principle comes in. You can see which garments can be combined with others and with the specially selected fabrics, the co-ordinates and options can be made to what you want them to be!
Visit the Ted Wears Organic Shop and kit your kids out this Christmas – add “XMASTUTU” at the till and you will get 15% off your shop too!
If you’re looking for something new to do with the children at the weekend – and want something to encourage them outdoors – then why not try a Treasure Trail; an imaginative and fun way to explore. Treasure Trails are self-guided themed walking treasure hunts, ideal for discovering more about where you live or for taking on holiday. They offer a great value activity that everyone, whatever their age, can enjoy doing together.
You can choose between three themes; a Treasure Hunt, a Spy Mission or a Murder Mystery. At the outset of each Trail the ‘mission’ is given – to find the treasure, crack the spy code or discover the ‘whodunnit’. You then follow an easy route and answer a series of clues involving some interesting, scenic and historical sights along the way to find the answers.
There are over 1,100 different Treasure Trials available, covering towns, cities and rural areas across the UK. All Trails are listed on the website so you should easily find somewhere you would like to explore.
Head over to the Treasure Trails Shop and send your kids on an adventure this Christmas!
That’s right… Treasure Trails are offering you the chance to win one of 5 trails they are giving away – perfect for any adventurers this Christmas!
Last year, Alyssa’s daddy got her the Lost My Name book in which a little girl travels through the book finding the different missing letters of her name and at the end of the story her name is complete – this was personalised so that the name that was found obviously was Alyssa and it is a gorgeously illustrated book and wonderful story that she will be able to enjoy for years to come and can then be kept as a memento too! Now, if you already have that one never fear, they have recently released “The Intergalactic Journey Home” which is the story of how your little character (personalised by name and gender) makes their way home… all the way to your child’s real life address with a little maps shot of their very own home… yet another great idea for a personalised book for your little ones! Lost My Name has such a wonderful ethos…
Dragons, unicorns, rabbits in top hats… there used to be loads of magic in the world. Now we’re on a mission to bring it back – and to make millions of children around the world more curious, clever and kind.How? By combining the power of amazing stories, with the possibilities of technology, to create magical, personalised experiences for kids. As missions go, it’s rather splendid.
To get your own personalised books for the kids this season check out the Lost My Name Shop now!
Alyssa has had a light up musical train for a while and has only recently discovered that she can sit on the carriage and push herself along, all the while going “choo-choo” and attempting to pull wheelies on it too which is not the best idea really so I thought it would be a great idea to get her something that was made toddling… wheel in the new Toddle Bike 2!! The Toddle bike 2 is a new and improved version of the hugely popular Toddle bike.
We want to make the world a better place, and believe that young people and science are a powerful combination that can affect positive social change . We want to disrupt education by re-balancing the value placed on education children receive at home with more formal education.We want to give every child the opportunity to become the next Marie Curie, Albert Einstein or Ada Lovelace. Just like Mary Poppins’ spoon full of sugar, we believe that The Curiosity Box provides just the right ingredients to make great scientists!
I think my nephew is going to absolutely love this and so I will definitely be signing him up for this – visit The Curiosity Box Shop now and sign your future scientists up too!
Thunderbirds are Go!! You cannot beat a good dress-up can you? I always had a dressing up box at home and used to have great fun with my sister dressing up. My nephew was the same and was always dressed as something whether it was a cook or a character from Lazy Town. This Christmas we need to buy a present for Alyssa’s cousin Leo who is about 8 months older than her and is such a little character himself… so what better gift than one to set his imagination racing!
Pretend to Bee has the most amazing array of role play costumes and character costumes for kids to play with as well as toys and games too! I think it is so important to encourage their imaginations at a young age and if they get to make believe that they are Virgil Tracey heading out to complete another Thunderbirds mission and save the day… why not?! They also have some great Christmas costumes as well as some very fitting ones for that dreaded Book Costume Day at school!
