Toddlebike2 – Review & Giveaway

When Libby was tiny, a friend of mine was kind enough to send us a Toddlebike for her birthday. At the time I’d never heard of Toddlebike, but it has since gone on to become probably the most used toy in our household. Toddlebike is designed to be the prequel to a balance bike. It teaches very young children to sit down on the bike and scoot along. And recently, Toddlebike has had a makeover. We’ve been lucky enough to be sent the Toddlebike2 to review. Toddlebike2 The Toddlebike2 is light, easy to climb onto and easy to steer. The handlebars…

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Puppy – Review

This is a collaborative post. Lia has never been a brilliant sleeper. As a baby, she didn’t sleep through until she was 7 months old, when I discovered the power of white noise. Since then, she’s been sleeping through most nights, but takes a long time to get to sleep and generally wakes at least once in the evening. When I was offered the opportunity to review the Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night toy, I was delighted. We’d stopped using white noise over a year ago, but Lia’s sleeping never quite resolved itself. As well as being a cute…
