More Laughing and Learning with LeapFrog Toys- A Review

LeapFrog Toys

A couple of months ago I wrote a review of two LeapFrog toys; Count and Colours Band and Melody the Musical Turtle. These toys are still going strong and are played with every single day in our house, by both kids. So when I was asked if I’d like to test out and review some more- it was an obvious yes!

LeapFrog Toys

Again, I was sent a toy to suit each of my children as Billy is coming up nine months and Violet is two. Although they do like to share and play with all of the LeapFrog toys, so age range isn’t a problem. Here are the two we have tried out this time;

LeapFrog Fridge Numbers Magnetic Set

LeapFrog Fridge Numbers Magnetic Set

This is the one we received for Violet. It’s aimed at 2+ years and is super cute! You’ll notice Scout the little dog who was on the toy Billy was sent last time, Scouts Count and Colours Band. He’s a very popular character within the LeapFrog range.

“With magnetic play that sticks to the fridge or any other magnetic surface, little ones can help themselves to endless servings of numbers, colours and food groups.”

Violet absolutely loves playing with this one as she’s obsessed with all things numbers at the moment. She also loves that it sticks onto the fridge and freezer so when I’m cooking dinner she usually brings it in, sticks it onto the freezer and has a bit of a play and dance. It comes with ten blocks, each with a number between 1 and 10 and another ten blocks with different foods on, each amounting to a different number between 1 and 10. You can see Violet playing with the ‘four broccoli’ block below which is her favourite because she loves broccoli!

You can place each block into the middle and press it so Scout can tell you what it is and if you press the music button he’ll start singing a song. He even has some little phrases and jokes to tell!

As usual I totally love this one as it’s helping Violet with her numbers massively. She’s fantastic at counting but still unsure which number is which when they are written down. With the help of this toy she is starting to recognise them as Scout tells her which one she has put in and she counts along with the picture blocks.

Count and Crawl Kitty

Count and Crawl LeapFrog Kitty

This is the one we received for Billy. It’s aimed at 9+ months, helps little ones explore numbers and includes lots of phrases and songs.

“Kids 9 months and up can press Kitty’s colourful keys to hear fun and frisky phrases about numbers 1-20, explore mew-sical notes from high to low and create their own tunes. Younger babies will love sitting and batting Kitty’s yarn to hear special counting and learning songs, such as “Tummy, Whiskers, Tongue and Paws”.”

As Billy is now on the move, he loves to push this one along whilst pressing the buttons and spinning the yarn ball on the front. Violet likes pushing this one so Billy then has to crawl to get it, which he finds hilarious!

You can change the settings between music and numbers too. When it’s set to music the kitty will play different tunes depending on which buttons are pressed. When it’s set to numbers it tells little one which number they have pressed and sings a counting song. Billy likes to have a little boogie no matter which setting it’s on and it’s not just for babies already on the move as they can sit and press the buttons just the same but it’s a great toy to help start the crawling!

Like the other two we have, these toys will grow with both of my kids which is perfect. There’s nothing worse than your little one getting bored of a toy pretty quickly and I really don’t think they will with these! They’re perfect for Christmas too so make sure you check out the full LeapFrog range. I’ve just bought LeapFrog LeapTV for Violet’s birthday in January and I can’t wait to have a go! You’ll have to wait until after her birthday for that review though 🙂

Do your little ones like LeapFrog toys? Which one is their favourite?

Baking with the Toddler- Easy Vanilla Cupcakes

Finished Cupcakes

Yesterday we didn’t make our usual playgroup as both kids have been full of cold. We decided to have a day at home as the weather was terrible and I had loads of parcels due to arrive. The toddler kept asking for cupcakes, which we didn’t have. So I thought it was the ideal opportunity to try out some baking with her.

IMG_6144

Violet usually gets pretty bored with baking. She just likes to eat the creations when they’re finished. So I was very surprised at how excited she was to make some cupcakes and she was straight in with her apron on asking what she could mix.

Toddler Mixing

IMG_6147

She was obviously in the mood to get her bake on as she did the lot!

IMG_6151

IMG_6152

We decided to divide the ingredients into six large cupcakes rather than make the 12 small as the recipe makes.

IMG_6155

When it came to doing the icing she had no patience left at all. Which meant that we ended up with a sloppy sort of buttercream, but it tasted good and it was Violet in colour so I let her get on with it. They’re her cakes after all.

IMG_6158

I managed to throw some sprinkles on the top of the cupcakes before the eating commenced too!

IMG_6161

The Cupcake Recipe

  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Butter
  • 100g Self Raising Flour (Which we didn’t have so used Plain Flour with a teaspoon of baking powder)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract

For the Cupcake Icing

  • 200g Butter
  • 200g Icing Sugar
  • Food Colouring
  • Sprinkles for the top if you fancy

The Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180c/ gas mark 4
  • Soften the butter by giving it a good mix. Then add the sugar and mix it all together.
  • Beat the eggs in a separate bowl then add to the sugar and butter and mix it together.
  • Sift in the flour and again mix.
  • Add the beaten eggs and vanilla extract and mix everything together.
  • Spoon the mixture between the cupcake cases.
  • Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes until golden brown.

For the icing you just need to mix the butter and icing sugar together and add a drop of food colouring. If you have more time (and patience) than us, you will have a stiff mixture that you can then pipe onto the top. Or you could settle for a sloppy mix like us and let the toddler go wild!

Enjoy!

EasiYo Yoghurt Maker Review

A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I’d like a yoghurt maker to try out and review. I’d never heard of EasiYo before but my two kids absolutely love having yoghurts for breakfast, lunch and supper so I thought it would be a must-have for us.

EasiYo Maker

I received the red EasiYo maker with two flavours of yoghurt; Vanilla and Blueberries and Cream. Rather conveniently, the kids ate the last few yoghurts we had for their supper last night so I decided it was the perfect time to try out the maker so there would be yoghurt for breakfast. I was hoping anyway- I have a tendency to mess things up the first time I try them out!

I let Violet choose the flavour and she chose the Blueberries and Cream as she loves fruit.

EasiYo MakerThe box contents are pretty simple; the EasiYo maker, the tub to put the yoghurt powder in and some instructions. The maker itself is really lightweight and has grippers on the bottom to stop it sliding around. Or in my case keeps it still whilst the big one kept trying to push it around, curiosity at it’s best as usual.

Blueberries and Cream sachet

I found that the instructions are super easy to follow which I was really pleased about, my brain doesn’t work as well as it should at the end of the day!

The Steps for using the EasiYo

  • Half fill the jar with tepid water and add the full sachet
  • Secure the lid onto the jar and shake well
  • Fill the jar with more tepid water to the top, secure the lid and shake again
  • Push the spacer into the maker and pour in boiling water to the top of the spacer
  • Place the jar on top of the spacer
  • Secure the lid onto the maker and leave overnight

EasiYo Maker

First thing this morning the rather excited toddler was asking for yoghurt for breakfast. I pretty much had my fingers crossed that it had worked and we weren’t going to be throwing away the contents.

IMG_6113

You could cut the tension with a knife when opening the maker. I’d already warned the big one that we might have to settle for toast…

Fear not, this Mama can also make yoghurt! Using the EasiYo maker I can anyway! The yoghurt itself is full of flavour and super creamy- I obviously joined the kids in having a bowl for breakfast, for review purposes, ahem. You get a lot of yoghurt out of one pack mix too so the rest is in the fridge and should probably last us until early next week. Now we just need to go shopping for more flavours!

IMG_6142

You can find the full range of EasiYo makers and yoghurt flavours on their website. You can even get a mini maker which is ideal for making smaller quantities.

Have you tried the EasiYo before? What’s your favourite flavour?

The Cake Tasting Club Review

I know, I know- cake again! How can you say no to cake though? Honestly? Of course I jumped at the chance when the lovely ladies at The Cake Tasting Club offered to send me a box to review and as it was October, this box was a little spookier than usual!

14705028_190444431401313_1521239470207139840_n(1)

The box I received was beautifully packaged and even contained some little paper bats and a balloon for the Halloween theme. Each baked good is individually packaged and has a list of ingredients on the reverse. It even came with a Spiced Apple tea bag which is absolutely perfect for an Autumn cuppa.

IMG_6066

Now as I’m a parent, it was quite a fight between me and Violet as to who got to taste what first. As you can imagine I didn’t get much say so didn’t get to taste the Spooky Gingerbread Ghost although I did get to sample the Oreo graveyard soil- good job I like Oreos! I hid the Cherry brain cake which I’m sooo glad I did because it was heavenly- the perfect piece of cake and really reminded me of something my Nana used to make when I was young. It was lovely and moist and the cherry icing really was the icing on the cake! I could have ate so much more of it. I also managed to get half of the Chocolate Orange Brownie and had to share the rest with both of my kids as Billy had his eye on it too. You can never go wrong with a brownie and this one was definitely no exception. A gorgeous gooey brownie infused with orange flavouring and chocolate orange segments- the perfect autumn treat!

What is The Cake Tasting Club? Or who should I say. Well, it’s a monthly subscription box filled with home baked cakes and it’s owned and ran by two lovely ladies, Vikki and Dom who both love to bake and came up with the idea so they can share their baking yumminess with us! How lucky are we?! They basically thought of the idea as not everyone has the time or skill to bake themselves and sometimes it’s nice to be able to have a slice without the rest of the cake staring you in the face- it’s true, I have no willpower!

“We bake all of the cakes by hand in the Cake Tasting HQ kitchen which has a five star cleanliness rating. Our cakes are always traditionally handmade as if you had baked them at home. We always use proper ingredients just like you would use and our eggs are always free range.”

How fabulous that these baked goodies aren’t created in a factory, using standard ingredients, they’re made in their own HQ kitchen. Clearly with lot’s of love going into each and every box! There are different options for you to choose from; The Classic which is the one I received with three different bakes to try each month; The Cake for one which is one slice of cake for you to try each month and The Brownie Box which is three different flavours of brownie each month. As it’s coming up to Christmas there’s also options to purchase a one off box or subscriptions as gifts for your loved ones; one month, three months, six months or twelve months.

Vikki and Dom even have a pledge for The Cake Tasting Club;

        “Our bakes will always be;

  • Lovingly handmade
  • Made from proper ingredients
  • Freshly prepared
  • Delicious
  • Never boring!
  • Never the same- we will not repeat a bake for at least 12 months”

The 10 Negatives of a Toilet “Trained” Toddler

The ultimate joy you feel when potty trained becomes toilet trained. It’s great isn’t it? The utter pride you feel boasting to everyone when it’s complete? Well I now know that those comments of “Oh that’s brilliant, makes life much easier for you now!”, are quite frankly, utter crap! Those people are clearly secretly thinking “Oh good luck with that love, you’ll be wishing she was back in nappies in no time”, followed by an evil chuckle.
Here are 10 of the negatives I’ve experienced so far…
1. Wanting to use the toilet CONSTANTLY.
Seriously. Once they’ve gotten used to using the toilet they will want to use it all of the time, regardless of whether they actually need it or not. This will drive you insane, especially in the beginning when you have to accompany them to the bathroom every. Single. Time! Having to wait for them to finish, even though you know their either not going to do anything or force out the smallest wee possible. Great.
2. Fear of toilets in unfamiliar places.
I experienced this one massively at the beginning. My daughter would refuse to even walk through the door of any public toilet- can’t blame her for that, let’s hope she’s still that picky when she’s older. But when you’re out for the day visiting a farm and she attempts to go the whole day without visiting the toilet, you just know that it’s going to end up with an accident in the sand pit. In my experience anyway! Remember spare clothes EVERYTIME you leave the house with said toddler.
3. Experimenting with toilet paper.
At first this was of no interest to my daughter, she was happy to let me wipe her when she’d finished, but once she started taking herself to the toilet on her own her curiosity took over. You will most probably walk in one day to find your bathroom looking like it’s been hit by a blizzard or in my case a bathtub full off unrolled toilet paper. Breathe.
4. Blocking the toilet (and sink!).
Ah yes, now those not so bad Christmas-like decorations have turned into full on- let’s just put this all down the toilet and see what happens. If you’re lucky like me it’ll be a full roll after a poop. Lucky me indeed. Buy marigolds.
5. Not reaching the toilet in time.
Clothing changes galore on this one. Luckily we haven’t experienced this one too much, probably because of point 1, but the times this has happened tends to be when she’s busy playing and just ‘forgets’. Or challenges herself to see how long she can last without going. Watch out for the ‘need a wee-wee’ dance.
6. Refusing to pull their pants up after using the toilet.
This one is still driving me insane. It’s rather embarrassing when you have company and your toddler returns downstairs with her pants around her ankles, hopping about like a crazed bunny rabbit. Honestly just pull them up!! I have no advice on this one- this is STILL happening, although not as often. The toddler that is- not me.
7. Not wiping their bottom.
Okay so you’ll have probably guessed from point 3 and 4 that I’m not overly keen on leaving the toilet roll within reach of my daughter, so I just leave a few squares by the side for her. Does she use them to wipe? Yeah right. Again it’s a case of hopping down the stairs shouting “Mama come wipe my bum!”. Eurgh. Just what I want whilst enjoying my already cold cuppa.
8. Deciding they need the toilet at the most inconvenient times.
This happens to me ALL of the time. Guaranteed we’ll walk into soft play and she’ll need the toilet. Always when I’m on my own with both kids. Anywhere, anytime, it’s going to happen. Perfect when you answer the phone to someone you don’t really want to speak to though… “oh I’ll have to go and take the little one to the toilet”. Comes in handy sometimes.
9. Curiosity of what else can fit down the toilet.
Ah yes, it’s not just toilet roll. Anything they can find, and reach, will be shoved down the toilet. Think about that the next time you’re about to brush your teeth…
10. Using needing the toilet as an excuse not to go to bed.
As if getting the kids into bed on a night time wasn’t hard enough they now have a genuine excuse to delay the process and you can bet your life they’ll use it! As tempting as it is to ignore their pleas, just let them go or you probably find yourself changing soaked bedsheets at 2am.

So there you have it, if you’ve yet to reach the toilet training stage, all I can say is GOOD LUCK!

Halloween Krispie Treats

As it’s Halloween soon, this week I’ve been in the kitchen with the little one creating some Pumpkin Krispie Treats! They’re super quick and easy to make and the kids absolutely love them! I got the idea from pictures I have seen on Pinterest but didn’t use a particular recipe and just made my own up 🙂

Halloween7

I’ll be honest, I’m not the best at measuring out ingredients when baking, I tend to just wing it, so I’ve given my best approximates below 🙂

Halloween1

You will need;

7 Giant Marshmallows

2 tsp of butter or marg

Orange or Yellow and Red Food Colouring

Rice Krispies

Green Smarties or M&M’s

Wispa Bites or something similar

First start by melting the marshmallows and butter in a bowl. I used the microwave for this and kept putting it in for 30second bursts, it took around 2 minutes for everything to be totally melted. Then you can add the food colouring to the marshmallow mix. I used red and yellow, first adding the red followed by a few drops of yellow until I had a really bold orange. Next you add the Krispies; I added a handful at a time and after about 5 handfuls I had a stiff mixture and all of the Krispies were completely coated in the marshmallow mix.

Halloween2

Halloween3

For this bit you will need to oil your hands as the mixture is super super sticky. I coated my hands with olive oil and took and handful at a time and rolled each bit into a ball. Pop each ball onto a greaseproof paper sheet until you’ve used the whole of the mixture.

Halloween4

Next you can add the toppings! I had Wispa bites which I cut in half and pushed them into the middle, squashing each krispie treat slightly to make it look a bit more like a pumpkin. I then had green peanut M&M’s which I cut in half (watch your fingers!) and added to the side of the Wispa bite to make it look like a little leaf! I then put them into the fridge for half an hour so they didn’t fall apart in the heat. And that’s it!

Halloween5

Halloween6

Happy Halloween!

Gel-A-Peel Review

As it’s coming up to Christmas I’ve recently been sent quite a few different products to try out and feature in my Christmas Gift Guides- watch out for them coming early November!

Gelapeel2

This one is called Gel-A-Peel and it’s aimed at ages 8 and above. I was supposed to be keeping this one as a gift for my niece but hey, I’m over 8 and quite frankly couldn’t resist trying it out!

Gelapeel1

I was sent a Neon accessory kit which contains everything you need to design your own funky creations; 3 Neon Gel tubes, a good selection of templates, 5 designer tips and some extra pieces to make earrings and such.

“Add a pop of color to your wardrobe with this Gel-a-Peel Accessory Kit. Design and create your own fashionable accessories. So easy to get started, just trace the templates, peel the gel design, and it’s ready to wear and share! If you’re into bright colors, the Gel-a-Peel Neon Accessory Kit will certainly gel with your style!”

Gelapeel6

Before you get started you need to put the plastic sheet you get within the pack, under warm water, so you can straighten it out as this is what you use to draw your designs onto. Then you can get going! It really is as simple as it sounds; Choose which tip to use and attach it to the gel tube and get creative. After around 15-20 minutes your design will then be dry enough for you to peel off the plastic and wear as you wish! I’m really impressed with the kit, it’s so easy to use and there’s no mess involved at all.

Gelapeel5

The templates included are really easy to follow and even tell you which direction to work in to help avoid the gel being smudged. They also include tips and ideas on different ways you can use the gel, like dotting it for a different effect.

Gelapeel3

I had a bit of an experiment with the different tips and colours and could have played with it for hours so I know this is a great one for my niece. Only thing is, now I need to buy a whole new pack for her Christmas present as I can’t part with this one, I have loads of ideas I want to try haha!

Gelapeel7

Check out their website here to find out more about the different packs available and where you can buy them 🙂

Britax Affinity 2 Travel System Review

Let me introduce to you Billy’s new wheels- the Britax Affinity 2. Well, I say new, but we’ve been testing this beaut out for the past couple of month and I can officially say that I am in LOVE! It’s suitable from 6 months to 3 years (17kg) and can be both rear and forward facing. You can also clip compatible Britax car seats and a hard carrycot (sold separately) directly onto the frame so the system can be used from newborn.

Now I’ll admit that when the system arrived I didn’t actually build it- I passed it straight to my other half G- he likes to build things! I think he was quite disappointed in a way though as he said it was ridiculously easy to put together and it only took him five minutes. Can’t complain with that at all as I’m a bit impatient and was ready to take Billy out for a stroll 🙂

Britax4

“The BRITAX AFFINITY 2 travel system has been designed to give parents the best of both worlds. Sleek style and colour customisation. Along with dual suspension performance for city and country terrain. So you’re free to take every day in your stride.”

The colours. You can choose from Black, White or Silver for the frame and there are six colours to choose from for the fabric; Lagoon Green, Cosmos Black, Flame Red, Wood Brown, Ocean Blue or Mineral Lilac. As you can probably tell, I chose the white frame with the Lagoon Green fabric which is so bold and bright- it’s absolutely gorgeous! The fabric colour packs can also be bought separately which will come in handy for when you need to give them a wash due to the messy toddlers or just to mix and match- I’m quite tempted to buy the Ocean Blue next!

The colour pack fabric is really easy to fit, everything basically pops into place including the apron which I think is much better than a cosy toes as it doesn’t slip down whilst you’re trying to strap the little one in- you can simply pop it on when they’re strapped in. The seat cushion is thickly padded and looks super comfy and again, stays in place perfectly so doesn’t move around and the harness straps simply slide on. There’s even a bit to fit into the basket on the bottom so the whole system has a touch of colour.

Britax5

The seat can be switched to either forward facing or rear facing really easily- there’s a button either side which you push at the same time and the seat clips off- you can then put it which way you like and click it into place. There’s even a little ventilation window or ‘spy pocket’ as I like to call it, on the back of the hood, (which is also adjustable and UPF 50+ sun protection), so you can peek on little one whilst they’re forward facing. The handle is adjustable too which is a huge bonus for us with G being so tall he likes to have it as high as possible and I like to have it in the middle. It also comes in handy when Billy wants to sit right up as you can lower it so it’s out of the way. The whole system is very light and so easy to push- whilst it looks quite big it’s a rather impressive, nippy pushchair and the front wheels move with ease making it simple to manoeuvre.

Britax6

Both the seat and footrest are multi-recline which makes the system comfortable for little one whether they’re awake or sleeping. You can tip it right back for when they’re sleeping and sit it right up for when they’re wide awake and want to see what’s going on. Same with the footrest, you can adjust that to whatever is more comfortable.

Britax7

When it comes to folding you need to take the seat off to do so. Once the seat is off you simply push the two buttons on either side of the frame and the frame will collapse smoothly and automatically lock into place once it’s folded as far as it will go. I was highly surprised at how compact it is once folded and pretty impressed that it’s also free standing when locked (not in my picture though as I hadn’t adjusted the handle). It will fit into pretty much any boot it’s so compact however you need to remember that you’ve also got the seat to fit in there too!

Britax2

The day after we received the Affinity 2 we were going on holiday and decided to take it with us so we could test it out properly as we knew we’d be having quite a few days out and using it to the max. Our holiday was in the UK so we took the raincover too. (which is fitted and doesn’t flap around might I add!) We really did use the pushchair A LOT and I’m surprised it came back in one piece! We took it on a hill walk, along the beach, to the sea life centre, on a train at a miniature railway, to soft play, shopping, we basically used it everyday, wherever we went and it was even used inside the caravan for Billy to take his naps!

Overall, as you can probably tell, I’m highly impressed with the Britax Affinity 2! I can’t fault it in any way and honestly cannot find one negative about the system. G’s even impressed- he keeps making comments on how amazing the suspension is- I have no idea, I just know it’s totally lightweight and easy to push/steer and is now the pushchair we use everyday. As you can see by the picture below Billy is perfectly happy and approves massively!

Neo Child Friendly Lava Lamp Review

Mathmos are the original inventors of the lava lamp (invented in 1963!) and they have just released an exciting new product design- Neo.

Neo5

“Neo is designed by lighting designer Jonathan Coles and is the only lava lamp in the world that has been completely tested and verified for customers of all ages. Every detail has been designed with safety and quality at its core.
Neo is made from precision cast metal and is low voltage; powered by long lasting halogen capsules for extended use. Its internal diffuser ensures that the heat and light are directed into the bottle ensuring the best view of Mathmos’ unique lava lamp formulation. The shatterproof bottle is made in Britain and filled in the Mathmos’ factory in Poole Dorset.”

This all means that the Neo lava lamp is completely child friendly. Amazing right? I remember when I was growing up, my parents would never let me have one out of fear. The horror stories they had heard about the next door neighbours cousins brother, who had fallen asleep and left his lava lamp on all night, which had they overheated; probably something like that anyway, I just know I wasn’t allowed one!

We were lucky enough to be sent one to review for Violet’s room. I have to admit that I was a little worried as there must have been a good reason as to why I wasn’t allowed to have one; so I keep telling myself. However, as usual there was nothing to worry about- I’m super impressed!

Neo2

The Neo took all of five minutes to set up and we put it straight into Violet’s room. The one I chose is absolutely perfect for her room too as I have recently decorated it using bright pink and bold purple. We did make a mistake though… Clearly we should have turned it on for the first time whilst she was in nursery as the first night we switched it on, whilst she was pretty impressed with the lighting and colours, within fifteen minutes she was declaring she was bored as the lava wasn’t moving! Bad Mammy didn’t realise that the first few uses would take between 1-3 hours for it to warm up properly to disperse the lava- whoops!

Neo3

A few days later, having switched the Neo on every night for an hour or so, Violet became amazed once again seeing the lava ‘bubbles’ dancing around the lamp! She’s hooked now, every night before her bath it has to be turned on so it’s ready for when she has her bedtime story. It really doesn’t overheat either and isn’t hot to the touch. Obviously we tell her not to touch it, more that we don’t want her to knock it over or anything and we never leave it on very long, usually just until she’s had her story. I kind of want one for my bedroom now!

Neo4

The Neo comes in four different colour combinations and is available in both chrome and copper finishes.You can find out more about Mathmos and buy your lava lamps here.

Did you ever have a lava lamp? Let me know your thoughts below!
