What a crazy time it's been this summer, and not in a good way, alas. One of the casualties of having the time off with Steve after his health scare was that reviews have largely gone by the wayside, so join me while I have a quick catch up!
First of all the girls received some lovely toys from CharacterWise, including this fun Frozen Disney Olaf Hooded Throw Blanket which Sophia adores. It's a really substantial size and perfect for snuggling up in. When we received it back in July I thought it would sit unused till autumn, then August went all weird on us! Sophia has loved snuggling up in her blanket on the sofa, and has also been using it in the girls' wigwam indoors. CharacterWise currently have this blanket on offer at £10.78 (RRP £19.99), so snap one up now! Perfect for your Christmas stockpile if you're in that mood yet...
Tatiana chose this cute Tatty Teddy Dress Up Hat & Swimsuit set, and her sisters wasted no time in getting their teddy dressed up for Tatia to play with. I think Tatty Teddy will definitely be coming on holiday with us later this month. They all love playing with their Tatty Teddies and there are so many cute outfits and accessories on the CharacterWise website, just check these out. I think the fluffy dressing gown and pink welly boots have gone on Sophia's Christmas wish list.
Lara is still crazy about the My Little Pony TV series and her MLP toy collection, so she was delighted at the idea of this cute Rainbow Dash Hair Styling Case & Accessories. The case contains a selection of different hair accessories, including hair clips, beads, thread, and bracelet.
Lara loved discovering the contents of her case and has been using Rainbow Dash to carry around her treasures since. It is a very robust little case for the money (currently £6.86, RRP £12.99), and would make a great gift for any MLP-mad little girl. Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle cases are also available.
Everyone has to choose a proper first teddy in our family, with Lara picking out her gorgeous Boris by grabbing him in Harrods toy department aged 1; Sophia choosing hers in a tiny toy shop around a similar age, and Tatiana in turn falling in love with her beloved Jelly Cat monkey on the lovely Say It With Bears website this summer.
Say It With Bears offers a wide variety of bears and cuddly critters, deliverable directly to the recipient in a cute box, with or without a cute little personalised t-shirt on him or her. It's such a lovely idea for gifts for children - and adults!
Tatiana chose the monkey photo on the site, and was so excited to receive her parcel, and find the lovely cuddly monkey inside. He got lots of cuddles and kisses immediately, and hasn't left her side since. VERY cute!
