Win family tickets for Nozstock 2019

Last Summer was the 20th anniversary of the Nozstock family-friendly festival. Unsurprisingly it was a complete sell-out, and they’re coming back bigger and better in 2019 including improvements to both family camping and the Little Wonderland Kids’ area.  Nozstock the Hidden Valley Festival We were incredibly impressed with last year’s Nozstock the Hidden Valley Festival and will definitely be back next year. You can read my full review here. Based in the Herefordshire countryside, Nozstock is the festival with something for everyone. The lineup isn’t confirmed for 2019 yet, but last year there were a variety of different acts across ten…

The variety of products on their site is excellent, ideal for those last few awkward people whose gifts you can’t quite decide on.

Win a PAW Patrol Sea Patroller

This is a collaborative post. To mark the launch of the PAW Patrol Christmas special on Nick Jr. UK on 11th December at 5pm, I’ve teamed up with Nickelodeon UK & Ireland to bring you an amazing competition. If you read the title of this post and immediately had the PAW Patrol theme tune in your head, there’s a good chance you’re a parent with young children. So, it follows that they’ve probably asked for a PAW Patrol toy for Christmas. The Sea Patroller perhaps? In fact, that’s not just a good guess. British newspaper readers have voted this one…

Win a fleece lined coat and trousers for a child from Wet Wednesdays

This time of year is always a bit depressing. The urge to stay inside to escape this grey, wet weather is almost overwhelming. But it’s so important to wrap up warm and get out there anyway. There’s nothing like a brisk walk in the cold air to blow away the cobwebs. And there’s nothing like moaning children to ruin it. Introducing Wet Wednesdays A few months ago, Wet Wednesdays kindly sent us some wet weather gear for the girls. Theoretically, we shouldn’t have got much use out of it for a few months. It was August after all. But true…

Now there’s a solution – and it’s beautiful. Introducing the VQ Emma Bridgewater Retro Mini DAB radio On long car journeys, the girls love listening to children’s radio or an audio book. They’re big fans of Julia Donaldson and cBeebies radio. It’s perfect…

I’ve always struggled to find palm oil free bath products. The majority of brands use palm oil derivatives to make their products bubbly. But a few months ago, we reviewed Jack and Jill tooth care range for children. Since then, they’ve expanded to include bath products as well. We’ve been reviewing their new bath time range and you can win a hamper of them so you can try them yourself. Simplicity shampoo and body wash The simplicity range is perfect for sensitive skin. It is unscented and hypoallergenic. It is even fine for use on newborns. My girls both suffer from…

Win an NFco tooth care Hamper

A few months ago, I reviewed some fabulous natural tooth care products from Jack and Jill Kids. At the time, I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t make something similar for adults. It is so difficult to find palm oil free toothpaste and toothbrushes are notoriously bad for the environment. That’s why I was delighted to hear that Jack and Jill have branched out to make The Natural Family Company – eco friendly tooth care for the whole family. Introducing NFco The Natural Family Company – NFco for short – was developed in response to numerous public requests for a…
