Giveaway: Pokemon bedding from Character World

When it comes to Christmas (and birthdays), I’m a big fan of buying presents that people actually need, rather than attractive looking ‘gifts’, which you realise a few days, weeks or months later are essentially overpriced crap. And if the present that a person needs is something which is also attractive, that’s even better. Regular readers will know that my younger son is a big fan of Pokemon. Pokemon...

Family games with Ginger Fox Games Club

It’s not easy finding ways to amuse a family when you’ve got three big kids. They want to do different things and go different places. They all prefer different sports or just spending time starting at their phones. But sometimes you still have to make that effort to relax and do something together. We don’t play them very often, but at Christmas and on holiday, you can find us playing board games and card games....

Dancewear from Dance Gear

Dancewear can sometimes look a bit boring – leotards, leggings, shorts, crop tops… They come in pink, black and lilac. The leotard might have a skirt. It might have thin straps or thicker ones. But it can all be a bit the same. Which is where Dance Gear comes in. The UK company doesn’t just stock dancewear brands like Roch Valley and Bloch, they also have their own unique Made to Order range. The range includes 80...

Help Your Kids With Growing Up by Robert Winston

I haven’t bought a parenting book since my boys were 4 and 2. They’re 16 and 13 now and they bring a whole new load of challenges with them. So I was very pleased when I was offered a copy of Help Your Kids With Growing Up to review, especially as it is written by Dr Robert Winston, who I have great admiration for, particularly his TV series, Child of Our Time. This is someone who really understands the workings of...
