Review: SmartGames Preschool Puzzle Games – Bunny Boo & Little Red Riding Hood

As Toddler L gets older, we’re noticing a change in what she plays with and how she plays. Over the last few months, there’s been a definite tendency towards (1) imaginative play, (2) creative / craft stuff and (3) solving problems.

It’s no secret that I struggle to buy presents – I’ve mentioned it multiple times on this blog before.

Review: Cuddledry Cuddleroar Toddler Dress-Up Bath Towel

Bathtime with a baby can be, erm, let’s say interesting.
