Exploring The Gruffalo Spotters Trail At Wendover Woods

A family took a stroll through the deep dark Wendover Woods… If you can forgive me for butchering one of the (probably) most famous opening lines in children’s book history, then let me share our recent adventure in search of The Gruffalo. Toddler L loves all things Gruffalo. We read the book – and Gruffalo’s Child – […]

Review: Water Babies Toddler Swimming Lessons (Chapter 7)

It only feels like the other day, but it was actually a year ago that I last wrote a specific review about our Water Babies swimming lessons. At that time, we – or should that be Toddler L – had completed Chapter 4 and was having an absolute blast in the pool. As tends to happen with […]

Cooking With Ella’s Kitchen At Waitrose Cookery School For Little Foodies

A few weeks ago, I did something pretty cool. As part of the ‘Little Foodies’ campaign – which is a partnership between Ella’s Kitchen and Waitrose designed to get shoppers prepping, cooking and exploring healthy food for their little ones – I got to visit Waitrose Cookery School. Not only that, but I watched a proper chef cook […]

7 Toddler-Friendly Things To Do On Holiday In Copenhagen

It feels like ages ago now, but last September we had a short European city break to Copenhagen. I’ve been meaning to write about the holiday for a while as we had a great time and found it to be a very toddler-friendly place, however, life and general laziness got in the way. Typical. So eight […]

Review: Our New Volkswagen Tiguan SE Nav 2.0 TDI Family Car

It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was writing about getting our first family car. It feels a bit odd looking back now, but for the first six months of Toddler L’s life, our only car was a three-door Vauxhall Corsa. This did the job, but it was barely something you could call ‘family-friendly’ […]

Review & Giveaway: Willows Activity Farm & Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground

The other week, we were invited along to Willows Activity Farm to celebrate a special event. As it was the one year anniversary of the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground opening, there was a bit of a birthday party happening. A hoppy birthday party, if you will. I know, that’s awful. Sorry. To try to redeem myself […]

Review: Our Tiny Knights Midweek Break At Warwick Castle

As a family always keen to find new places to visit and explore, I was chuffed to be asked to be a blogging ambassador for Warwick Castle during 2017. I’ve only ever been there once before – back in 2006 ish when the missus and I were fresh faced, less grey and enjoyed copious amounts […]

Things To Do With A Toddler In Dacorum, Hertfordshire And Buckinghamshire

Since becoming a stay-at-home dad nearly two years ago, I’ve found that my days are pretty different to the pre-kid days. Hardly surprising, I know. But what this has meant is that I’ve needed to tap into a whole different world of baby and toddler related activities that I never knew about before. As a […]

Review: SmarTrike T3 2-Stage Kids 3-Wheel Scooter (Purple)

Over the last few years, I’ve noticed more and more kids – and adults – flying around on the human-powered contraptions known as scooters. It’s not been something that’s ever interested me personally – mainly because you look like a right dick when you’re an adult – but it’s something we’ve considered for Toddler L. […]
