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. […]

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. So, for example, she’s using her imagination to cook in her kitchen or play doctors, […]

Staying Active With The Toddler During Winter

Apart from Christmas, winter is a bleak time in the UK. It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s windy and generally pretty unappealing – what do you mean I couldn’t get a job with Visit Britain?! Due to the harsh conditions outside, it’s easy to take cover and stay inside. When it’s barely above freezing out there, making […]

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 […]

Reading Toddler L’s Favourite Children’s Books

It’s widely accepted that reading to your kid is pretty bloody awesome. Not only does it allow you to spend quality time together, but it can help with things like their vocabulary, literacy, concentration, understanding and imagination. This, in turn, can increase their chances of success in the future. Out of interest – and also […]

Review: Little Tikes Lil’ Ocean Explorers Baby And Toddler Toys

A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to be invited along to a launch event with children’s toy company Little Tikes to check out their new Lil’ Ocean Explorers range. Armed with a youthful exuberance, a bag full of baby stuff and, of course, the sprog, we got on the train and headed to Maggie & Rose […]

The DADventurer’s SmarTrike #SwapYourStroller Challenge

I love a challenge. Well, within reason. I don’t want to do something too strenuous or difficult – where’s the fun in failing?! Still, I find it pretty difficult to turn down a challenge. Whether it’s my personality or some kind of macho thing inside me, saying no and turning away can be hard. I […]

Review: Penwizard Personalised ‘My Daddy’ Peppa Pig Book

What’s better than a book? (Don’t say the TV) A personalised book which features you and the fruit of your loins, of course! Being somewhat of a connoisseur of baby-related items since Baby L popped into the world nine months ago, I was very intrigued when I was contacted by the guys and girls at […]
