Review: New Sofia the First Toys from JAKKS

Disney Junior is a firm favourite in our house, and the girls both love watching Sofia The First. So they were delighted to get the chance to review some of the new collection of Sofia toys from JAKKS Pacific.

We’d love to do more vlogs so I thought this would be a great opportunity to dust off the video camera and practice my editing skills… you can watch the girls opening their new toys over on our YouTube channel, plus some outtakes! It’s surprisingly difficult to coordinate two kids on camera – we had a tantrum, Clara nearly broke the camera and at one point abandoned the toys in favour of the cardboard box (typical toddler!). However, we did have lots of fun making the videos so hopefully you will enjoy them!

Family Picnics with Bibetta Lunch Bags

Izzy and Clara love a picnic, no matter where we are or whatever the weather, so they were happy to review a new lunch bag from Bibetta. Of course it was the perfect excuse to go for a picnic (or three) while we had some nice weather over the Summer holidays.IMG_20160814_190313

Scratch Sleeves: Stop toddlers pulling out their hair

We’ve been having a bit of a problem with Clara over the past few months. She has been pulling her hair out which has resulted in some big patches where her hair is thinning and short. It’s a comfort thing – she sucks her thumb on one hand and with the other she plays with her hair, wrapping it around her fingers and pulling it. As she always sucks her left thumb, she only pulls the hair she can reach with her right hand – so she has lovely blond curls on one side of her head and short, wispy hair on the other side. However, in the past few weeks the situation has really improved and we are feeling positive that she’s going to break this habit.

The turning point was when I searched on-line for advice on how to stop toddlers pulling their hair out. I came across this website for a company called Scratch Sleeves. I ordered a set of Scratch Mitts for Clara to try, and then the company very kindly sent Clara a PJ top to review.
