Frozen Northern Lights Elsa Review

To celebrate the premiere of the Frozen Northern Lights animated series on Disney Channel, Izzy and Clara were sent a Frozen Northern Lights Elsa Doll by Jakks Pacific.

The animated shorts follow Queen Elsa and her sister Anna on an adventure to bring the Northern Lights back to Arendelle – and now Frozen fans can help Elsa restore the Northern Lights with this interactive doll. Elsa sings (Let it go – of course), says over 40 phrases and if you wave your hand over the snowflake you can help Elsa find the Northern Lights and create a magical light show. (more…)

Book Review: Rocking and Reading with Jungle Jam

Like most children, my girls love listening to stories and always run to the bookshelf to pick out a book for bedtime. So when we were asked to review a new children’s book, I couldn’t say no. We were kindly sent a copy of Jungle Jam, which tells the tale of Mikey the Monkey’s trip through the jungle and all the animal friends he encounters along the way – each playing a different instrument.

As soon as Clara saw it she kept asking us to read the ‘monkey book’, and we’ve since read it a few times (and as we usually have to read ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ every single night, trust me, this has made a nice change!)  (more…)

Kiddyum frozen meals: a quick fix for busy families

Family life can be hectic at times – it can be a juggling act trying to manage work, the nursery drop-off, school runs and all those extra-curricular activities. And that’s before you even think about making a start on the housework. So when it comes to mealtimes, cooking healthy meals from scratch is probably the last thing you have time for!

So when Clara and I were asked to try out some Kiddyum frozen meals they sounded like they could be the answer. On the days I’m not working, I’m chauffeuring my eldest daughter to after-school dance classes and swimming lessons, so by the time we get home the kids are starving and don’t want to wait ages while I cook tea. I need to get something on the table pretty quick, but at the same time I want to make sure my children are eating healthy and nutritious food. (more…)
