Nostalgic toys…


Fisher Price Classics TV/ Radio

I love toys that take me back to my childhood. Toys I enjoyed playing with for hours when I was little. Toys I have very fond memories of. I have a habit of buying them for my children, but the good news is they are just as fantastic now and my two have loved them just as much as I did.


Fisher Price Classics Little Snoopy Toy

These are two of our favourites and although thought they seem smaller than I remember, they are just as durable and hardwearing. Simple classics.

4. GoKi Dolls Carry Cradle Basket

5. Boden Mary Jane’s from £34.50

I think this may just be all my favourite things in one outfit! I have already shared with you the glitter version of these shoes within this post, but here they are in all their magnificentness in leopard print! I would wear the stripes under the dress with the dress sleeves rolled up to make it preppy and it will be just as fabulous with grey tights (these are the best tights ever, I would buy in navy  and charcoal as well) when this Indian summer has gone. This baby basket, Amazon tells me, I bought in 2012 and it is still one of Daisy’s favourite toys and has been beaten and battered but still looks brand new, maybe one for the Christmas list!

Games my kids love…


Tobar Mancala

 The Beetle Game – Retro Board Game

As a family we love to play games, they are so easy to take out and about with us and I always seem to have about three in my handbag. Especially card games. I love the benefits of playing games together. It makes us interact with each other, is cheap and fun and the kids have to learn rules such as waiting their turn, have to think about their next move, about what their opponent will do and also how to handle their emotions if they lose! I thought I would share some of our favourite games.

Mancala is such a good game for two people. There are 48 glass balls and you have to try and get as many as you can in your ‘mancala’ trough to win. This is very good as it gets the kids thinking strategically. Even Bobby at 5 could master it! It’s a game for all ages which Daisy’s grandma discovered last weekend when she got addicted.

The Beetle game is good as each beetle part is represented by the number on the dice. To win you have to be the fastest to build your beetle. I bought it as Bobby was struggling with his numbers and I wanted him to get use to identifying them. This helped. A good little stocking filler.

Dobble Card Game

UNO Cards

These are two of the games that are always in my handbag. I have written about Dobble before here, but as it is one of our favourites I thought it was definitely worth mentioning again as it would make a fabulous stocking filler.  Uno was one of my favourite childhood games. Me and my friend Amy became very good at it and very competitive. Daisy is now the best player in our house. We went out for tea the other evening and were playing this and ended up with two of Daisy’s school friends and their mum sat with us playing as well. The mum went straight out and bought it as she thought it was fab. So if you don’t have it you really need to go and buy it.
