      bit over priced

      I bought this for my little girl who at the time was only 2 years old but it is recommended for children over 3 years but i think it is fine for younger children too. Peppa pig is very popular with small children and does many books,clothes,playsets, my little girl is peppa pig mad and we have many different toys from peppa pig but this spaceship or rocket as i like to call it as thats what it looks like to me is not one of there best toys, although the spaceship is fairly big at 30cm tall i find that the doors on the rocket itself keep coming off alot and this can be very annoying when you have a 2 year old who keeps saying "Mummy fix it" lol, also it does not really do that much as it only comes with a danny dog who is dressed up in a silver space suit and a peppa pig who is dressed the same, you can then strap them into the spaceship (which i find the straps are very fiddly) and then set them off in the spaceship but be warned once this is switched on you will need new ear drums as its that loud lol, my little girl has lots of noisy toys but this is by far the loudest.

      The rocket makes the following noises once placed on a flat surface it says "spaceship peppa ready for take off 5,4,3,2,1 blastoff" " That was fun"

      The spaceship is red and yellow with 3 doors that can be opended, i bought my peppa pig spaceship from argos for £19.99 but u can buy them on amazon or ebay. I think the item is ok and my little one does like it but its not one of there better toys i think it is a bit over priced

      Really love toasties on this machine

      I bought this sandwich toaster from argos for £4.54 and i think it was a real bargin although it may not be a top brand it still does a good job. It does not look all that it is just a plain white colour with 2 indicator lights green to let you know it is switched on and red to let you know that it is hot enough to start toasting.

      I have found that sometimes the bread can stick abit but have found if you butter both sides then it does prevent this or you could just lightly oil the metal plates. This sandwich toaster also does 2 sandwiches at once and it also seals all the edges which is great so your filling does not fall out half way through eating lol. You can do all sorts of different sandwiches like beans,cheese,cheese ham,cheese tomato anything you can think of really.

      The toaster is really easy to clean you just wipe it over with a clean damp cloth and its all clean, i found this is really great to use for children but sometimes the filling can be very hot so a warning to let it cool down a bit before giving to your little ones.

      600 watts.
      Makes 2 sandwiches.
      Handle locking clip.
      Cool touch.
      Power on indicator and ready light.
      Easy to clean.
      Non-slip feet.
      Manufacturer's 1 year guarantee.

      Totes slipper socks are so comfy and i love wearing them on a cold cosy night they are of a thick material and are thicker than normall socks and have a lovely soft inside, they also have little grips on the bottom which prevents you from slippying on wood floors or anyother foor that is not carpet.

      A must have for anyone

      These plastic storage boxes are really good to have and are usefull for all sorts of things, you can use them to store books, clothes,baby stuff,kitchen items, makeup, and lots more they fit nicely under the bed and keep all your items dust and moth free. You can get them in all different sizes and lengths and they come with lids that lift straight off or lids that are hinged and open out.

      I use lots of these storage boxes for my little girls toys to keep them all tidy as you know kids can be very messy lol, and these help me to keep my little ones room tidy and clutter free, you can also stack them on top of each other or slide them under a bed or cupboard. I also use them to store my old clothes in and find when i have pulled it out from under the bed the top is very dusty but the clothes inside are all still dust free so this is great and the boxes are so easy just to wipe clean.

      Although the boxes are made of plastic i find they are still quiet sturdy and can hold quiet abit without breaking and you can also get them in all different colours and this is really great for your kids rooms. I would say that these boxes are even great to use when moving house or storing items in the loft, they are just so handy for anthing.

      I bought my storage boxes from ebay for about £5 but i know you can also get them from www.wilkinsonplus.com: from £3 - £10 i think the 6.5l is about £3 and a 45l is about £10 so they are not a bad price and are so handy.

      Thanks for reading my review hope it is some help

      I bought this happyland dino set from the early learning center as they had 50% off so i got it for £16 which was great as they are normally £35, I did think to myself at the time that maybe it was more for boys as it was a dinosaur but i was wrong as my little girl lexy loved it so so much she could not saying thankyou mummy i was so happy.

      The dinosaur is red and not a bad size and when you push his hand down he makes a roar and he has a little seeat on his back where you can put the cave man or woman or there little baby in the back, when you put the cave man in the back of the dinosaur he says another phrase, it also comes with a little dino in a egg which you can open up and a cave car which you can put the cave man and woman in and drive it around, there is also a pyramid house that comes with it too with a swing.

      It is such great fun and its not just for boys girls love it too, this is for 18 months plus and althougth it is expensive at £35 if you can get it on sale it is a must have and your little ones will love it.

      So glad i found this

      I have been using this mitchum advance control roll on deodrant for about 2 years now and im so glad that i found out about it, after having my little girl i started to sweat really bad and it was so horrible and upsetting as i had never had this until after i had my little girl and as alot of you know it can be very embarrassing especially if you are out and about or you are out for the evening and have a lovely dress on it can make you feel very unhappy.

      Mitchum roll on is great it has a lovely smell and is powder fresh and makes you feel so clean and dry, it has a 48 hour strength and protection so keeps you dryer for longer, all you have to do is shake the bottle and apply evenly, i have found that i only need to use these a few times a month as it keeps me so dry that if i use it more than that it then starts to make me itch as my skin has really dried out.

      You can buy this from lots of places such as boots superdrug tesco sainsburys at around £3 they also do it in a stick cream and a spray it really is worth a try if you have a problem with sweating , i have used it for just over 2 years now and find that i can now use normall deodrant like dove etc as this has really helped me.

      Great little kettle and good price

      I bought this kettle just over a year ago now and bought mine from ebay for £24.99, after alot of looking about for a kettle and not wanting something too cheap as they always just break and burn out i decided to go with this russell hobbs one which really does look great it is a black gloss colour and has a sillver base which the kettle sits on and really does look the part in my kitchen, it goes well with any colour kitchen.

      The russell hobbs is a great buy as it retails for £49.99 but you can buy them from ebay or amazon and get it for about £25, The kettle has a rapid boil so does not take long at all and this is a must have if you have small babies lol also it holds 1.7l which is a good amount, the thing that i love love love is the way that it lights up blue when its in boil mode i just think it looks so cool and i have had so many comments from my friends, it is easy to pour out and has a good spout so it does not spill everywhere.

      I have had this for just over a year and i have had no problems with it at all great buy and just looks fab.

        This is a must have and is well worth the money

        After trying several types of other potty's and having no luck with my little girl using them as she did not like the look or feel of them i was desperate to try anything lol, So i looked in the argos and i came across this smart rewards potty which looked really great as it looked exactly like a real toilet lol, it was more expensive than normally potty's at £21.99 but as i was so desperate i did not care.

        When i returned home with the potty and took it out the box my little girls face lit up as it looked so like mummy's toilet and she wanted to sit on it right away which for me was great as we had struggled so much. It was not hard to put together all you have to do is attach the back piece of the toilet to the base of the toilet and away you go.

        The smart rewards potty is so good and here is why:

        As soon as you switch it on it has 3 stars that light up.
        As soon as your child sits on it it starts to sing a tune to them which goes " are you ready to try, hey there big kid welcome back your so great your right on track,going potty is just so great"
        If your little one then does a wee wee it then goes " you did it" and reminds your child to take a sticker for there chart.
        As i mentioned it also comes with 2 charts and 2 sticker rolls which are in the shape of stars and have smilely faces and you can add your childs name to the back of the chart.

        The potty is also comes with a splash guard for boys and is so easy to clean all you do is lift the seat and there is a blue bowl which you then take out and empty.

        I think this potty is a must have and although it is more pricey than some others its well worth it.

          Great mess free fun for your little ones

          These aqua doodle mini mats are good fun for kids and are mess free lol, i bought these for my little girl last year from ebay for about £5.00, They are made by tomy and you get 4 different peppa pig scenes in the pack.

          When your little one takes them out they are just like a white piece of card and all you have to do is fill the pen with water and then your little one can colour them in and just like magic the scene will start to appear and your little one will be amazed, The great thing about them is unlike pens and paints they dont stain anything or make a mess as all that comes out is water.

          There are many different versions you can buy not just peppa pig but dora or in the night garden,
          I think they are great for little ones that are 1 year as it helps them to learn to hold a pen and how to use it without making a mess everywhere. Great for a gift or for a stocking filler at xmas.

          Only thing i would say is that when your child gets 2 plus they do tend to get bored of them.

          My little girl really loves this

          These huggle buddies are so cutie and soft i bought one of these for my little girl who is 2 1/2 and she really loves it. They are so so soft and you can use them for a pillow so it great for your little one to cuddle into on a long journey or at night , they are also really good for sleep overs as you can put your little ones pjs inside as the huggle buddie folds together and has a velcro fastening. They are also machine washable and come up really nice after a wash, the material is really good quality and does not come away which can sometime become a worry with little ones. I bought my little girl the bumbble bee with is yellow and black and she really loves it but they also come in a range of different animals such as a ladybird, unicorn,dog,monkey,polar bear,penguin and many more you i bought mine from amazon for about £25.00 but you can also get them from ebay or hugglebuddie.co.uk, these really are a great and your little one will want to take it everywhere, You wont be disapointed.
