The Gro-Clock For Children's Sleep Training

2016-11-08 11:48:10 admin
Gro Clock Long before the clock was invented, us humans used to wake when the sun came up, and sleep when it went dark. Well, this simple concept has been digitised into a neat little package, namely the Gro-Clock by The Gro Company.

Wahaka restaurant in South bank Centre London

4/5

Our trip to Wahaka Southbank was a spontaneous and well deserved treat  as Junior slowly woke from an afternoon nap during a stroll along the South Bank of the Thames.

Changing Bags for Men?!

2014-07-14 11:47:55 admin
Let's face it, there is nothing more unmanly than taking Junior out and about with a changing bag that is plastered with floral prints, or even 'yummy mummy' slogans, but where are the changing man bags? Not that I would want 'delicious dad' or cars, beer, football or any other stereotypical pattern all over them, but they seem to be predominantly designed with women only in mind.

Maxi-Cose Axiss Front-Facing Travel Seat Review

2014-06-30 11:37:31 admin
Maxi Cose Car Seat

Overall 4/5

Safe, secure, user-friendly
Overall, the Maxi-Cose travel seat is a great product. Although a little fiddly to get installed it is easy to get junior in and out without having to reach right into the car as you would with traditional car seats.

Family Glamping at Port Lympne Elephant Lodge

2014-06-03 11:48:10 admin

Port Lympne Elephant Lodge Restaurant

Rating of 4/5

Well, not only was this a special birthday surprise, but an incredibly enjoyable one at that. 'Five star' glamping at the wonderfully presented, Port Lympne Elephant Lodge, deep in the heart of Kent, UK. Upon arrival (late morning), we parked up and made our way to the entrance and were told that with our booking comes the unlimited access to both the Port Lympne, and Howletts Wild Animal Parks. Even as a day trip, these parks alone are well worth the visit - I'm not sure who loved the animals more, us or Junior!

Angelcare baby monitor

Overall 4/5

Easy to install, good range, very responsive
No word of a lie, this Angelcare baby monitor has been one of the best baby products we have bought to date. I can hardly imagine a world without it and strongly recommend that any new parent or parent to be invest in one, for junior's safety and your own sanity.

Mothercare bassinette travel cot
Overall 4/5
Spacious, Safe, User-friendly
We were fortunate for this to be given to us as a gift by a parent who knew it would come into it's own, and it has done just that on many an occasion. Gift on not, this product is well worth adding to your arsenal.

Mobi Wrap
Overall 2/5
Awkward, Non-Practical
Now the Mobi Wrap was something I was very excited to try. After having heard so much excitement about this product, I could only be expecting amazing things, right?

Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo Review

2013-12-23 11:53:06 admin
Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo

Overall rating 4/5

Durable, Fun, Educational
Overall this is a good product if your budget allows. Plenty to keep junior amused and learn with both sound and tactile grabbing objects. It does take up quite a bit of space and is difficult to transport between room due to it's size. A great benefit is that YOU will have peace of mind knowing that you baby is safe and entertained allowing you to get on with those chores...
