Trapper Hat from Rockin Baby and Matching Gloves

We were kindly sent a Trapper hat from Rockin Baby and matching gloves for review recently. I was quite excited as I first came across Rockin Baby at the BlogOn MSI conference I attended in September and was very interested to hear their ethos. trapper hat from rockin baby

Rockin Baby was founded in America in 2002 and was taken over in 2011, whereupon their Mantra became

You buy, we give.

For every sling and piece of children’s clothing that is bought from Rockin Baby, they donate the same to mothers and children around the world, child-to-child, mother-to-mother, who need it via their partnership with well organised, non-profit organisation such as ChildFund. Slings are their core product but their expanding baby and children’s wear ranges are fashionable, colourful and desirable to fashion-savvy parents and their children. For every item people such as you or I buy, they donate a sling, carrier or item of clothing to needy children around the world. This is amazing and they are the only company who do this, as far as I am aware. What a wonderful thing to do!trapper hat from rockin baby

Rockin Baby slings and pouches are made in America and pass rigorous safety tests in both the US and Europe. Their clothing range includes knitwear, outerwear, nightwear and accessories, as well as tops and bottoms. We were kindly sent one a Brown Trapper Hat from Rockin Baby and matching gloves to road test with BattleKid.trapper hat from rockin baby

Anyone who knows BattleKid knows that he is a hat man. From his Curious George hat, to his Aviator hat to his Nans Knits hats, he loves wearing hats. So much so that the girls in nursery often have a hard time of it taking it off him during the day. He often comes out with a sweaty head from wearing his hat throughout the day! So we were extremely delighted to get the opportunity to review another one to add to his collection.

The Trapper hat from Rockin Baby and matching gloves are a lovely burnt orange colour with brown stripes. The hat is a trapper style as the name suggests and the hat is fleece lined inside and has a fur trim too. It’s really cosy and warm and the colour is fantastic.trapper hat from rockin baby

However, despite receiving an age 3-6 years, BattleKid’s head was too big for it. The hat fit at the front and went over his ears no problem but was riding up the back of his head. Now I do have trouble with the sizes of hats for BattleKid as he has a big head and generally only buy hats when I have him with me to try them on. I’ve recently bought him a hat from another retailer and had to get an age 5-6 despite him not turning three for another week! So I was a little disappointed that it didn’t fit him properly but certainly didn’t think he needed a size 7-10 years!trapper hat from rockin baby trapper hat from rockin baby trapper hat from rockin baby

That said the hat is a great style, one that suits him and was really warm and cosy. He wore it to see Santa recently and wasn’t cold at all with the trapper hat from Rockin Baby on.

The matching gloves we received in a size age 3-6 years are big on him so will last him the next few winters which I’m delighted with. He is still getting the hang of putting his fingers in one finger, as all young children do, but the colours are fantastic and the gloves will keep his hands nice and warm outdoors.

What I love about the Trapper Hat from Rockin Baby and matching gloves:

  • Extremely warm and cosy.
  • Great colours.
  • The Trapper hat is fleece lined and with a fur trim.
  • Quality of products feels great.
  • Very stylish.
  • This style of hat suits BattleKid down to the ground, if I do say so myself.
  • Gloves are generously sized and will last BattleKid for a few winters to come.
  • Value-for-money with the hat priced at £14.00 and the gloves at £10.00 considering that for every item you buy Rockin Baby donates one as well.
  • Rockin Baby have a wonderful ethos and mantra, you buy we buy.

What I didn’t like about the Trapper Hat from Rockin Baby and matching gloves:

  • The hat didn’t fit BattleKid but that may simply be down to the fact he has a big head and I find hats hard to buy in ‘his’ size.

Overall I was happy with the colours and quality of the trapper hat from Rockin Baby and matching gloves. However, as I’ve mentioned the hat was too small for BattleKid, despite us receiving an age 3-6 year’s size. I would say that if you are considering buying a hat for your little ones from Rockin Baby and their heads are larger than usual sizes, order a big one which will last. Would I recommend Rockin Baby for clothing and accessories such as hats and gloves? Without a doubt. Their clothing are not only stylish and fashionable but reasonably priced considering their “You buy, we give” mantra.

Childrens Bedding from Character World

We’ve been thinking of updating BattleKid’s bedroom as he approaches 3, so when we got the chance to receive some childrens bedding from Character World for review I jumped at the chance and knew exactly which character we’d like to receive.childrens bedding from character world

BattleKid’s bedroom has very much been a place for sleeping and only sleeping. He very rarely ‘plays’ in his room and we’ve kept it this way since he was little. He has a few toys in there but they are more for distraction while getting dressed in the morning or while getting ready for bed. He doesn’t play in his bedroom during the day and we like it that way. It keeps it as a room for sleeping in and quiet times. However, that said we still want it to be a room he likes to go to, for obvious reasons.

When BattleKid turned 2 at the start of this year we decided to update his room from a nursery to a toddler’s room. It had been a traditional kind of nursery with the Next Cheeky Monkey theme running throughout. But after we had his Curious George themed birthday party we decided to convert his baby nursery to a toddler room using Curious George as the feature.

Now that he’s getting a bit older we’re thinking it’s time for a change again. We had to stop him watching too much Curious George as he was starting to respond to us in monkey noises rather than speech, and while he still likes George, he now enjoys watching Thomas the Tank Engine in the evenings before dinner. With that in mind I asked if we could receive Thomas the Tank Engine childrens bedding from Character World and we were pleasantly surprised when we received a junior bed set, a fleece blanket and a towel poncho.childrens bedding from character world

Character World started in 1998 with the aim of being the number 1 licensed textile manufacturer in the UK and they are, both in the UK, and now Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Character World provide the best bedding textiles for all major entertainment companies from TV, movie, gaming and music. Their collections include characters from things such as Thomas the Tank Engine, Frozen, Star Wars, Peppa Pig, Marvel Heroes and many, many more. Their huge range includes bedding, cushions, blankets, towelling, curtains, rugs and beanbags.

The first item to be reviewed was the Junior childrens bedding from Character World. BattleKid’s cot was a cot bed so Junior bedding fits it perfectly. I sneaked into his room before collecting him from nursery one evening to change his bed. childrens bedding from character world childrens bedding from character worldThe first thing that struck me about the set we were sent was how vibrant the colours are. Now, I haven’t washed this set yet, so I am hoping the colours don’t fade but I will update you all if they do. I doubt it though. The actual Thomas the Tank Engine design is lovely and a certain little boy was only thrilled to see him on his bed that night.

Oh mama, it’s Thomas. What he doing on my bed?

He was more than happy to jump into bed that night under Thomas, and he slept really well, with no problem. I’ll be honest and say I was a bit apprehensive as we’ve been using a bedding set that has zips up the side to ensure his duvet doesn’t slip down off him but we had no problems that night or any since. He likes to move outside his duvet and it seems this non-zip version doesn’t cause him any problems. Perhaps he now finds it easier getting the duvet back on him during the night if necessary. So our Junior childrens bedding from Character World has gone down a storm with BattleKid.childrens bedding from character world

The next thing we used and loved was the Thomas the Tank Engine fleece blanket. I gave this to BattleKid after swimming one Sunday afternoon and he was toasty and warm under it while watching the Jungle Book film. He doesn’t nap in the afternoons anymore but he was close on this occasion under his new Thomas fleece blanket. Again it was a case of “oh mama, Thomas”. This blanket is really warm, despite appearing thin on first glance and the colours and design again are colourful and beautiful too.

Last but not least we’ve used the Thomas the Tank Engine towel poncho after swimming and showers at home. I haven’t taken pictures after swimming as our changing room is on the small side and I don’t want to include pictures of other children without their parent’s permission. So I’ve stuck to a few pictures at home.childrens bedding from character world childrens bedding from character world

Once again I had a very happy Thomas the Tank Engine fan who was only more than happy to get out of the shower when I showed him this. BattleKid often kicks up a fuss about getting out of the shower (bet he changes his tune when he gets older) and it can be a struggle to get him out but not when I produced this Thomas towel poncho. Out he came with a grin as I put it over his head! And on several occasions he has asked for his Thomas towel after showers but it is washed and ready to take on our forthcoming holiday to the Canaries!

What we love about the childrens bedding from Character World:

  • A huge range of characters to choose from.
  • Vibrant colours on our Thomas the Tank Engine bedding, blanket and towel.
  • Designs are lovely and will definitely appeal to young fans.
  • Lots of items to update your child’s bedroom with from bedding to cushions to rugs.
  • Value for money and available through a number of retailers including Argos, Mothercare and Amazon with prices typically ranging from £15-25 depending on the retailer and product.

What we didn’t like about the childrens bedding from Character World:

  • Nothing. Although I would have loved to have seen Curious George in their range when we were searching for things to update BattleKid’s bedroom earlier this year.

Overall, both we and BattleKid are thrilled with the items we received for review from Character World. So much so that we are intending to update his room after his birthday in January to a Thomas the Tank Engine theme to carry on from what we’ve received. I have already ordered a rug (Character World one), lamp shade and wall decals to use during the update so stay tuned for that post in January.

All that is left to say is that we are very happy with the bedding and towel we received from Character World. So if your little one is a big fan of a particular character make sure you check out the huge range of childrens bedding from Character World!

Christmas Gifts from Snapfish for Everyone

As you know I have worked with Snapfish before and was really pleased with the photo gifts I received, so when they got in touch to see if we’d like to create some Christmas-themed items I wasn’t going to say no. There are endless ideas for Christmas gifts from Snapfish and it was going to be a hard choice.Christmas gifts from Snapfish

Creating Christmas gifts from Snapfish is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Upload your photos to your account.
  2. Get creative in your ‘project’ arranging them until you are happy.
  3. Order your final project creation and wait for them to come through the door.

First on the agenda of my Christmas gifts from Snapfish was some personalised Christmas cards. I have never thought of personalised Christmas cards until this year and the timing of this opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time as we were off to see Father Christmas at Bluestone and I knew it would be a great opportunity to get some Christmassy photos to use for this project.

Once we got back from our trip to Bluestone, I got to work creating two different types of personalised Christmas cards. I also created a Christmas tree decoration and a phone cover.Christmas gifts from Snapfish

Firstly, I upload some of our pictures from Bluestone and took my time deciding from the huge range of designs. Many come with a range of background colours and layouts to choose from and you can personalise many of them too.Christmas gifts from Snapfish Christmas gifts from Snapfish

The first design I chose was the Rustic Pine Snapshots design. This uses 3 photos and has 3 backgrounds and can be personalised. I really like this design but only ordered 3 of these as I was about to order a set of 20. These cards are individually priced at £1.99 each. The outside is glossy and the inside matt and they come with a white envelope.

Our card features 3 of our Bluestone photos and I chose the white background as it is quite classic and showcases our pictures really well. I’m really pleased with these and will be sending these home to family. These alone will make me think about personalised Christmas cards for everyone next year!

The second design I chose was the Christmas Foliage design. This card has 3 layouts to choose from as well as 3 background colours and can be personalised. You also have a choice of glossy or matt finishes on your cards. These cards come as a set of 20 and cost as little as 40p each, which is great value for money. Our card features the same 3 photos as used in the Rustic Pine snapshots design and this time I chose a red background.Christmas gifts from Snapfish Christmas gifts from Snapfish

Although they do say “Flat” on the Snapfish website I was still surprised to find they are indeed flat. They don’t fold and are more like a postcard than a traditional card. However, that said the design on the back was lovely and these would be ideal for friends and relations but maybe not quite close family. The only thing I didn’t like about these was the matt finish I chose as the photos seemed a bit faded. In hindsight I should have gone for a glossy finish but I know for next year. All in all they are a lovely Christmas cards, particularly for friends and not-so-close family. These cards also come with a white envelope and both types of cards I ordered come as 7 x 5” in size.

The next of my Christmas gifts from Snapfish I wanted to order was the Round Acrylic Ornament as a Christmas decoration. I wanted this to include in BattleKid’s Christmas Eve Box as I always get him a new Christmas decoration for his box. This was so easy to make and you can chose from a whole range of embellishments for it too. I went for a Seasonal Winter one saying “Let it Snow” although I was dubious about how obvious it would be on the real thing as it appeared quite faint on the project picture online.Christmas gifts from Snapfish

You can have different backgrounds, different designs and can use a photo or not. I used one of BattleKid from after our visit to the Kingdom of the Elves as it was the perfect photo to use for a Christmas decoration. Your ornament comes ‘glossy’ on the right side and matt on the reverse and measures 2.95” x 2.95” and includes a cord for hanging. These would make a perfect gift for grandparents.

Overall I am very pleased with the ornament and the picture turned out well on it, although as I suspected the “Let it Snow” looks quite faint in the picture. This may simply be due to the background colours in the picture I chose but I would have liked the option to change the writing colour or to at least bold it. So bear this in mind if you are adding writing to your acrylic ornament. The round acrylic ornament costs just £8.99, great value for money as a small gift or stocking filler.

Last but not least I made a phone cover for my Galaxy S6. I’d been thinking about making a personalised one for a while and decided to bite the bullet. The options for personalised phone covers are endless on Snapfish. You can create your own from a huge range of background colours and embellishments or you can simply use your own photos as I did. I uploaded a recent picture of BattleKid and left it at that. Simple but effective.Christmas gifts from Snapfish

The cover itself is made from hard plastic and feels quite sturdy. Not flimsy at all. The quality of the picture on the back is excellent and I am over the moon with my new phone cover. The cover goes on without any hassle, fits my phone perfectly and is lightweight too. I am very happy to know I’ve got a lovely picture of BattleKid to perk me up at any time of the day by simply turning over my phone. And with the cover only costing £12.99 you can afford to update your phone case with a new photo every few months if you want to!

My Christmas cards were first to arrive and did so 3 days after placing the order which was really fast. Next to arrive was the phone case and acrylic ornament which arrived a day before the estimated arrival date. At each stage of ordering and dispatch Snapfish send you email updates which are great. No wondering when your order will arrive. And should there be any hassle with your order, their online help team are quick to answer. Great communication lines.

What I love about Christmas gifts from Snapfish:

  • Easy to create.
  • Great value-for-money.
  • Endless ideas for all the family.
  • Cards and gifts of high quality.
  • Many options for personalising your cards and gifts.
  • Christmas cards arrived within 3 days.
  • Great communication from Snapfish regarding dispatch of orders.

What I don’t like about Christmas gifts from Snapfish:

  • Nothing!

So if you are stuck for ideas why not consider creating some Christmas gifts from Snapfish. From personalised Christmas cards to acrylic ornaments to 2017 photo calendars, they have something for everyone.

If you are worried about getting a good picture for those all-important Christmas gifts from Snapfish, they have a great list of hints and tips for shooting the perfect Christmas Family Photo which are included below.

8 Creative Tips to Shoot the Perfect Christmas Family Photo

1) Get an extra pair of hands. Rounding up the troops for a family shoot is tricky enough without the added stress of positioning the camera, setting the timer and then sprinting back into position. Grab a friend or neighbour to play director, you can always return the favour to spread some Christmas cheer!

2) Lighting, crucial to any photoshoot, it’s the trickiest of elements to get right. Natural light is your best friend, so if you’re indoor, set up near a window to take full advantage of the winter sunshine.

3) Look the part! Matching accessories will add a touch of festive fun and help take your shots to the next level; think Santa hats, woolly reindeer jumpers, or even matching Christmas mugs! Product: Colourful Mugs, only £8.99, Snapfish.co.uk

4) Prop it up. Christmas is all about fun, so why not jazz things up with a few Christmassy props? Your family photoshoot doesn’t need to rely on the house being transformed into Santa’s Grotto or a Winter Wonderland – a few tinsel touches or the odd sprig of mistletoe will do the trick.

5) Pets complete your family! So whilst your puppy may be hell bent on getting his teeth around the fairy lights, including them in will be well worth the hassle when you see the finished result. (See Tip 6 for how to do this!)

6) Rewards (also known as bribery!) are the easiest way to keep pets and children interested! Guarantee their full attention throughout the photo shoot by keeping a suitable stash of treats to hand. (But keep them in separate bags… Health and Safety!) Product: Photo Cushions, from £19.99, Snapfish.co.uk

7) Tell a Story. Snapping people when they least expect it often results in the best photographs. So tell a funny joke or encourage them to, and be ready to capture candid, relaxed moments instead of saying ‘cheese’ and hoping for a few stiff grins.

8) Keep it fun! Your family shoot doesn’t have to be a solemn occasion. Get everyone involved in the planning process and encourage them to contribute their ideas to make for a happy, relaxed atmosphere and a truly memorable shot.

Num Noms – Inspiring #MiniChefs To Get Cooking

We got the opportunity recently to receive and review some Num Noms from Series 2 as part of their #MiniChefs campaign. Num Noms are running a #MiniChefs campaign designed to encourage children to get into the kitchen and have fun with food and get cooking. Alongside our Num Noms packets we also received a chef’s hat which I easily fitted to BattleKid’s head. He borrowed an apron of mine and we headed into the kitchen to play with and get inspired by the Num Noms we received.

We first opened our parcel to get to grips with what Num Noms are and to have fun playing with them and get some inspiration from the characters and their scent. We received two sets of Num Noms from Series 2.num noms

The first set we received was the Diner Jumbo Combo pack which includes 6 scented Nums, two scented, motorised Noms, a collector’s menu, ice tray container and a spoon accessory. Inside the pack is a mystery character too.

The Nums included Hammy Burger, PBNJ (Peanut Butter ‘N’ Jelly), Frenchie Fries, Lemony Cola and Haley Hot Dog. The Diner Jumbo Combo also comes with two Noms; Cheesy Go-Go and Ketchup Go-Go.num noms

The second set we received was the Num Noms Pizza Party pack which contained Peppy Roni, Sammy Smores and Pina Aloha Nums and a Chili Go-Go Nom, as well as a pizza cutter and tray container.num noms

BattleKid and I were immediately intrigued and weren’t too sure what to make of them at first. But we soon got playing and both of us got a fright when we accidently turned on the Noms!

We weren’t expecting them to get going like they did. Cue squeals of fright and then delight as BattleKid realised he had not one, not two but three Noms. It’s safe to say there was a lot of noise from there on in.

So what exactly are Num Noms I hear you say?

A cup of cuteness and a spoonful of surprise make Num Noms.

Num Noms are food character toys which enable children to play and gain inspiration. You mix a Num with a Nom to create endless wacky combos. They are scented mini food dishes designed to inspire Mini Chefs. You can mix and match Num Noms to create both sweet and savoury scented recipes and there are over 100 to collect. Phew!

BattleKid and I had great fun placing Nums onto top of a Nom, setting it going and watching our creations jump around the kitchen counter before falling off. I haven’t heard BattleKid giggle this much for a long time.num noms num noms num noms num noms

We were really inspired by our Pizza Party pack and we decided to make homemade pizza for dinner later that night. I bought a pre-rolled pizza base and we soon got to topping it with all manner of things. BattleKid loves ham and pineapple, although there wasn’t much pineapple making its way onto his pizza I can tell you. He might say it’s a Mini Chef’s prerogative to taste food as you cook!num noms num noms num nomsnum noms img_5747

We love making homemade pizza as you can top it with anything you fancy and with as much or as little toppings as you like. If you fancy trying homemade pizza why not follow our easy-to-follow recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Shop-bought pizza base
  • Tomato and Basil Pizza Sauce
  • Grated Cheddar and Mozzarella mix
  • Onions, diced
  • Ham, diced
  • Sweetcorn
  • Pineapple chunks, or rings diced
  • Red pepper, sliced thinly and quite small
  • Pepperonni
  • Mozzarella slices
  • Mushrooms, thinly sliced
  1. Place your pizza base on a pizza oven tray.
  2. Smooth out a few tablespoons of the tomato sauce, enough to cover the base to your taste.
  3. Place a small sprinkle of grated cheese over the sauce.
  4. Top with whatever toppings you like, a little or a lot.
  5. Once you are happy with your toppings sprinkle with some more grated cheese.
  6. Bake in the oven according to the recommended times for your base.
  7. Serve with fries, wedges or salad.
  8. Enjoy!num noms

Since we got inspired and creative in the kitchen BattleKid has had more fun playing with his Num Noms, pretending to eat them, serving them up to me during play and also setting his Noms off to buzz their way down our hall. num nomsIn fact, one evening I could hear a buzzing sound from the hall after he had gone to bed only to discover a Nom stuck under his bike wheel!

What we love about Num Noms:

  • Great for little hands.
  • Lots of characters to collect and play with.
  • The number of combinations you can create are endless.
  • A unique way of getting children to be creative.
  • A brilliant way to inspire Mini Chefs to get into the kitchen and get cooking with Mum and Dad’s help.
  • Hours of fun to be had for little ones.
  • Reasonably priced (details below).
  • Would make perfect Christmas stocking fillers.

What we don’t like about Num Noms:

  • My only criticism is that the scent is perhaps a little too subtle.

Num Noms are one of the most unique and novel toys I’ve come across in a long time. They have provided hours of fun for BattleKid, both in and out of the kitchen, and are just the right size for his little hands. These toys will inspire budding, young chefs and are a brilliant way to get children into the kitchen and to get them cooking. We had great fun getting to grips with ours before being inspired by our Pizza Party pack to have a pizza party of our own that night. And I have to say our pizzas were yummy.

So if you have younger children who are keen to get into the kitchen and become mini chefs, or you would like to get your children interested in food and cooking, why not get them some Num Noms and have some fun together! There are also lots of recipe ideas on the Num Noms website.

Num Noms are available to buy from Smyths, Toy’R’Us, Argos and even Tesco and Asda. Num Noms packs start from around £5.99 (RRP).

Busy B To Do Diary Stripe 2017 – Review

Busy B To Do DiaryI was recently given the opportunity to review one of the new 2017 diaries from Busy B. As you all know I am a big fan of Busy B stationery and accessories so when I was offered the chance to review the Busy B To Do Diary in the Stripe design, I jumped at it.

As I’ve mentioned before I stumbled across Busy B by accident. I read a review by another blogger and went to investigate myself, flicking through their website and gorgeous Instagram account. I immediately fell in love and promptly ordered myself a diary to check out.

Since that fateful day I have ordered other diaries from Busy B for work to help me keep track of projects and deadlines, and for home to keep track of weekends away and days out with friends. They have become invaluable for me, and if you’re a pen and paper kinda gal like me, you’ll appreciate why I prefer physical diaries over the electronic type.

The diary I was kindly sent for review was the Busy B To Do Diary, in Stripe, for 2017. It is a great little diary which is approximately A6 size. It has a cool and funky stripe design and is the perfect size for popping into my handbag.Busy B To Do Diary

There is a full yearly calendar at the front, followed by monthly calendars, before your weekly planner commences. Every three months there is a handy pocket for storing bits and bobs like receipts or appointment cards and at the back are some very useful perforated lists, a great idea for jotting down your shopping list or, if you are like me, all important holiday packing lists!

As always, and as I’ve come to expect from Busy B, the Busy B To Do Diary is well made and full of pages with gorgeous designs. There is a handy pen loop to ensure both stay together, for what is a diary without a pen. The diary is kept closed by an elastic closure and it is the perfect compliment to my blogging notebook too!Busy B To Do Diary

The monthly calendars at the front are useful for jotting down important birthdays and holidays while each weekly view is well thought out with your weekly planner on one page with the other side left for notes. I’ve already started filling in important dates for next year!Busy B To Do Diary Busy B To Do Diary
