Casdon Toy Dyson Cord-free Vacuum Cleaner Review

They say that children copy what their parents/elders do. So I’m chuffed that Cameo loves to sweep, hoover and clean up. I feel like we never do enough of it, so I guess it feels like we must do if he has picked up on it. So our house can’t be that messy after all! He is definitely at the stage where he wants to copy everything we do. One of the funniest is hovering. We bought him a little hoover from a charity shop last year, unfortunately, it didn’t work but he still loved moving it around. So you…

Fireman Cam To The Rescue

We’re about to reach Cameos 2nd birthday and although he has definitely reached the terrible two’s early, it’s also been a really funny couple of weeks. His imagination has just started to blossom. He is pouring himself imaginary tea from teapots and driving cars along the sofa. It’s so amazing to watch. His absolute favourite thing right now is anything fire engine related. Cameo is absolutely obsessed with all things fire engines and Fireman Sam. He’ll walk around saying ‘Call Fireman Sam’ or ‘Cool and Calm’ (some of Fireman Sam’s well-known sayings if you didn’t know!). So when Hape told…

WIN: £25 worth of toys from What 2 Buy 4 Kids

Cameo is just on the verge of turning 2 and I can’t believe how time has flown… and how much he has grown. Lately, he has really learnt how to play by himself and has somehow curated a little love of cars. It’s not what we’ve embedded in him, it’s what he has chosen to play with. He loved driving them around the house over every single item in his way. He has a little imagination brewing and it’s brilliant. THat’s why we really think about the toys we’re giving him at the moment. We want him to learn and…

Our Tour de Trike Adventure – #LTTourdeTrike

I knew kids had energy but my eldest son Cameo has tonnes of it! He is 20 months now and since we moved to Nottingham back in March he has absolutely revelled in the outdoors. He loves to run, literally just run. Take him to a park and he’ll ignore the swings. He just wants to explore. London is great (I lived there for 30 years!) but you can’t beat the open space we have now. Not only have we got a garden but we have loads of open, safe space and Cameo loves it. The only issue is that…

What To Get A Toddler – If In Doubt, Get The Bubbles Out

When Cameo was born I felt like we were inundated with baby bath products. It sounds silly now, but we didn’t really need it. Well, not in huge quantities anyway. But I know that’s just what you do, isn’t it? Baby bath stuff is a part of every baby shower gift going. This might come as a surprise now but we use more bath stuff now that he is a toddler than when he was a baby. (He is still my baby, but you know what I mean). So I’m giving you all a head up. If you want to…
