My Twins Are Back In School. Oh Yes!

We are just two days into returning to school since the Christmas holidays, and I have found the relief incredible. Is that wrong? I’m not sure, but I am still relieved for all of that.

Cubetto Robot Review by Primo Toys 

I was recently sent a Cubetto the Robot coding game made by Primo Toys.

Do We As Parents Dictate What Toys Our Children Play With 

I have written on a few occasions about gender stereotyping when it comes to toys, films and activities for our children. I am 100% behind toys being gender free. As parents I have often wondered do we influence what toys our children play with because of our own likes and dislikes from childhood? After all our children as they grow up are like sponges and hear everything we say, and without question mimic us. Above all things though, they trust us completely and without reservation. So if I was playing call of duty on the Xbox would they then think… [Read More]
