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.

All views, opinions, images and soon-to-be schoolgirls are my own. Can you believe that this little cutie with the infectious giggle and her shoes on the wrong feet starts school next week? Neither can I. But that time is upon us and it’s time to start getting ready. When prezzybox got in touch about working with us on a back to school project, I was quite smug. Nope, there was nothing I needed thank you very…
