Missed The Float

First of all, I have to apologise because I have missed the float. Yes, yes, yes – my allocated Toys R Us Toyologist carnival slot was Sunday 24th October and I am 4 whole days late in delivering my carnival offer. I have been flying solo for a while and I completely underestimated the destructive capabilities of The Menace. I might have just taken on a snipsy bit more then I can chew and also, am Monica so need to keep the house tidy! Excuses, excuses, I know but I have been jogging to stand still recently. Anyway Hagar is back for a bit so I am taking full advantage so that I can get back in the game.

But to make up for it I am giving away a stash of toys (see pic):

1.) Phineas and Ferb Secret Notebook and Pen RRP: £7.99

The remaining carnivals are taking place here:

Thursday 28th October Flower Fairies and Fairy Cakes

Saturday 30th October The Babbling Mummy

Sunday 31st October A Mother’s Ramblings

Tuesday 2nd November Are we nearly there yet, Mummy?

Monday 8th November Sticky Fingers

And another two boxes of toys arrived today!! But it’s great and I love it. I am not complaining because the toys are toys that I would never think to buy. It has really opened my eyes to what engages the children and it has been a constant surprise.

We are delighted to be Toys R Us Toyologists, so thank you very much Toys R Us. I am hoping to set up some Toys R Us Toyology tea parties so watch this space. If you are part of the military community and you think your childcare centre would benefit from a stash of toys for the kids to test then, please email me at:

    I’d love to enter but I think the selection would be wasted on my kids now aged 21,23 & 25. Sigh
