  • Toys are the currency of children

    By on June 18, 2013
    In my book  A Modern Military Mother – Tales from the Domestic Frontline, page 97, in the chapter ‘Hagar goes to Afghanistan’ I write: “What do I think? I want him to be vigilant at all times. To come home again. It is tiring though being strong, putting your head down, digging in and pushing through – again and again […]

  • Nerf Vortex Vigilon

    Nerf Vortex Vigilon Review As with all things Nerf, this comes well pckaged and makes you really want to get the box open and get firing! Once you get the handgun out of the box it doesn’t disapoint. A good size for children and chunky, funky and bright, it feels good and looks good. The Vortex system uses a new […]

  • Smelli Gelli Baff Review

    By on November 11, 2011
    We love Smelli Gelli Baff!! It rocks! The kids were so excited because it’s such an awesome thing. I was raised on Tiswas and Emu and Grotbags – custard pies and slime. Kids lovee the consistency of Gelli Baff. It’s gooey, gloopy, coloured, warm and just oodles of bath time fun. The bathroom smelt great and the kids smelt great. […]

    By on November 8, 2011
    The Step 2 Sand and Water Adjustable Table is easy to put together, in fact so easy the kids managed to do it virtually unaided! It is quite sturdy and works well on grass, but is less good on a hard floor as when the kids lean against it the table tends to slide across the floor…. The children really […]

  • Barbie Fashionista Review

    By on November 8, 2011
    Barbie Review When I saw this my heart sank. It’s a fairly tacky looking punketteish Barbie and not the sort of influence that I would to inflict upon my 3 year old. As I have established throughout this toy testing experience, toys are not designed for adults they are designed for children. Therefore, needless to say the minute the menace […]
