AD My Fairy Garden

We absolutely love the My Fairy Garden range, as soon as the box arrived my girls enjoyed opening the box to find Fairy Fenn and putting together her pretty house and picket fence, We then went to the shop to buy some soil, just a small amount is needed, the girls poured out the seeds and planted them with a bit of space around each one, We then placed soil on top, they watered them a tiny bit, for the first day we kept the My Fairy Garden out of direct daylight, thereafter on our conservatory table and watered a tiny bit every other day.

My Fairy Garden
So exciting!
My Fairy Garden
Beautiful House and Garden – So simple to put together and Fenn is lovely

My girls have loved watching the My Fairy Garden pea shoots grow day by day!

My Fairy Garden
Growth happened quickly with the pea shoots

I couldn’t get over how quickly they grow, honestly each time I looked at the plant it had appeared to have grown more!

My Fairy Garden
So much growth, Excuse the shorter bits my Daughter snipped them to try!

My eldest then carefully used scissors to snip some of the pea shoots to try, She doesn’t normally like any kind of leafy vegetables but loved these!

Thank you My Fairy Garden and Wire Pr, My Daughter was even encouraged to try leafy salad and now enjoy’s pea shoots.

This is a great weekend activity with children age 3 years plus in my opinion, Great for little imaginations, My 3 year old talks to Fairy Fenn and takes her in and out of her house. Shutting and opening the little gate she is perched on.

Christmas Gift Ideas 2018

Christmas 2018 is less than 2 months away

How fast did that come round again? At this time of year I like to start lining up gift ideas for my children . Here are some items that I like the look of and have been reviewing this month.

For 2+ year old

This count with Peppa toy is lots of fun, Peppa helps children count to ten. Whilst also learning to recognize colours and numbers.  My little girl loves playing with this toy at 3 years old she is just learning to count to ten, this toy will  help her practice. My Daughter enjoyed slotting the coins into Peppa’s purse counting them as she went. Peppa also helps children with listening to instructions that are asked and following sequential steps, what’s not to love learning whilst playing. My Daughter is very protective of this toys and likes to show us that she understands what Peppa is asking.

For 4+ year old

This Fuzzikins Campervan is so much fun! The set includes x2 Cat Fuzzikins ( a medium and a large)  that can be coloured in with the x5 felt tip pens included. The inside of the Campervan is amazing the cats can sit at the table on the rubber chairs or the table turns into a bed with the blanket to go over the cats of a night time. There is also 3x Colour your own sticker sheets which my daughter really enjoyed.

All clips away inside the Campervan which is great as less mess and chance of the Fuzzikins or contents going missing. My 6 year old Daughter absolutely loved playing with this toy, being able to colour the cats in was an added bonus, she especially loves letting them pretend to eat together at the table, then putting them down to bed for the night.  She said it’s great because it clips together and my sister can’t open it!

For 10+ year old

This Science Mad – Crystal Growing Kit

Includes 14 experiments that are all safety tested. With everything you need to grow and cultivate your own beautiful crystals.  This comes in a large box , So there’s a lot to get creating with. It’s the kind of gift, I myself as a child I would have been so excited to receive.  We have loved creating crystals, As my eldest Daughter is 6 she needed my help and was really happy with the end result.  Some real one on time with my Daughter. It really brought me back to my childhood. Make sure you wear the goggles and follow the safety instructions, I would recommend the help of a grown up.  So far we’ve only created one set of crystals but still so many more to try, definitely value for money. Science is so much fun!

Some of the crystal’s we made:

 

Baby 6months +

Sophie La Giraffe Beaker, It’s just so cute! I will be getting this for my baby as absolutely love the hidden Sophie in the middle of the beaker.

Match Stick Monkey – These looks like exactly the kind of toy my baby would love at the moment as he can only hold little things. Plus it has a toothbrush at the end to apply teething relief or practice brushing !  Both seen in JoJo Maman Bebe.

*Three of the above items were gifted for review by Wire Pr, The Peppa Pig – Count with me             ( Trends UK ) , The Science Mad Crystal Growing Kit. ( Trends Uk ) and Fuzzikins Campervan.
