Cost Cutter - Wooden Noahs Ark review.

Monday, 26 August 2013

I don't know about you but I really love wooden toys. There is just something about them that draws my attention.

Countless times I have seen Liv push a button and a toy lights up, sings and pretty much plays all by itself, but what imagination does that require?

When we were offered the chance to choose a toy to review from Cost Cutters, I was really excited when I spotted this lovely wooden Noah's Ark as Liv is constantly counting at the moment and loves learning about animals.


When we opened the box, the body of the ship was already made, it only required some simple assembly for the house part on the top.



All of the parts were individually wrapped to prevent them being damaged, this excited Liv because she felt like she was unwrapping lots of presents. I have to say, the quality of the item is brilliant, it is sturdy and very well decorated.

I can honestly say Liv has loved playing with her Ark, learning the names of the animals and singing the animals went in two by two - hurrah, hurrah!

She likes to put them all in the hull, close the door and say where did the animals go?! - Very cute!

With the Ark is Noah and his Wife and 2 Doves, Giraffes, Hippos, Kangaroos, Crocodiles, Zebras, Dolphins, Penguins, Lions and Elephants.
 
Not to mention hours of fun!

 

I would definitely recommend this educational toy to Friends and Family, it has been such a pleasure to watch Liv play, learn and use her imagination with this and I will definitely be looking to purchase from this website in the future.

Lara Jill Mariposa changing bag review

Friday, 2 August 2013

We were very lucky to be sent this beautiful Lara Jill changing bag, isn't it pretty?



I absolutely love the butterfly design of this bag, it is very eye catching and a very spacious 46cm long, by 30cm wide and 18cm in height.

It has an external zipped pouch to the front, a large zipped pocket on the back as well as a small internal zipper and an insulated bottle pouch externally at either end.


It is made in a waxed canvas type material that is fully wipeable to withstand all of those juice/ice cream/quaver attacks!

The zips are made of a quality thick plastic, while the strap clips and hooks are made from metal.

Included with the bag is the biggest, thickest travel changing mat I have ever come across. It is lovely and padded so your little one is nice and comfy when lying on it.

A lot of thought has gone into the design of this bag, one big thing for me is that the handles are a thick material with the oilcloth design partiall sewn over, this means that the haldles are far more fluid and comfortable to use. 

It is very spacious inside, when packing for an overnight stay last week I managed to easily fit all of this in:
8 nappies
A pack of wet wipes
2 outfits
A cardigan
A pair of pyjamas
3 bibs
Eczema cream
Medicine
Juice cup
2 mini boxes of raisins
A box of breadsticks
Toothbrush and paste
2 fruit pots
3 books
And a pair of shoes


Priced at just £34.99 I think this bag is a bargain and would definitely recommend this bag to family and friends.
