Nampa Party

Nampa Party – The Creative App For Kids

I have to admit I am really strict about my kids using devices.  Big has only just got his own tablet for his eighth birthday.  My dislike for them playing on devises has mainly been because of the games.  I find so many inappropriate because they seem too violent, or they are full of ads, […] Read more…

Why Saltrock Kids T-Shirts Surprised Me

I’m not someone who is into designer clothes and brand names.  My experience is normally that they are very expensive and that the quality doesn’t always justify the price tag.  I’m more of the mentality of buying three items for the price of that one.   These thoughts particularly apply to buying clothes for my […] Read more…

Easy Healthy Dinners with Little Dish Pots & Pies

I am always slightly suspicious of parents who say their kids eat organic healthy meals 100% of the time.  I mean we all strive to feed our kids healthy meals, to make sure they eat their fruit and veg, and to limit their sugar intake.  But some days I resort to chucking something ‘beige’ in […] Read more…

Storytime magazine review

Storytime Magazine Review

I don’t know many parents who are fans of kids magazines.  Personally I find them overpriced, they don’t entertain the kids for very long, and I don’t find that they encourage reading.  And don’t get me started on the cheap plastic tat that comes with them.  Which is also near on impossible to remove without tearing […] Read more…
