Review: Britax-Römer DUALFIX i-SIZE Extended Rear Facing Car Seat

Back in late 2017, I heard a few murmurings about a new, extended-rear facing, i-SIZE compliant car seat being launched by Britax Römer.

Review: Feeling Grand In The Vauxhall Grandland X (Elite Nav 1.6 TD)

As a family fortunate enough to regularly drive new cars through the missus’ work company car scheme, I like to think that I’ve learnt one or two things about cars. Sure, I don’t *really* know what a lot of the numbers mean or how a car actually functions, but I’ve been behind the wheel of […]

Celebrating The #SmallVictories With Vauxhall Astra

Review: Philips ADR810 Dash Cam Automotive Driving Recorder

The last few years has seen a rise in a new kind of car tech – the dashboard camera, aka dash cam. Something once reserved for the Police and Sci-Fi films, improved technology, rising insurance costs and ‘crash for cash’ scams – which is worth £400 million a year in fraudulent claims – has seen […]

Review: Kiddimoto Super Junior Max Metal Balance Bike, Helmet And Gloves

When I think back to my favourite things as a kid, riding a bike was definitely up there. As a pre-teen, a bike can make you feel on top of the world – the thrill, the speed, the ability to go anywhere and do anything. If I remember rightly, I had an orange Raleigh Chopper – although […]

Review: Diono Radian 5 Extended Rear Facing Car Seat (Group 0, 0+, 1, 2)

When it comes to buying stuff for your baby, one of the most important purchases is the car seat. Not only is it a big lump of cash to pay out, but it’s the thing that protects your little one when driving. BUT, they can be confusing. As an expectant dad, I remember not knowing where […]
