I don't know any six-year old that doesn't love Hatchimals CollEGGtibles so imagine how delighted Noah was when I opened up a delivery to reveal the latest collection. We were sent a selection from the new season to review, which has resulted in very happy children! "Oh my gosh Mummy, it's the Mermals ones!" I definitely earned some MAJOR mummy points that day!

Recently we've been reviewing a few different role play toys as this kind of play is something that all of my children love. As well as being lots of fun, it's an important part of a child's development, as it helps them to build confidence, communication skills, problem solving and physical development to name a few! So I am always keen to encourage it and role play toys are always a welcome addition to our playroom. Casdon are a toy brand who make lots of brilliant role play toys; last month we reviewed their toy Dyson vacuum cleaner and this month we are reviewing their Supermarket Till Toy.

My children love role-play, no doubt I've said it before, and I bet your children are the same! It makes them feel so grown-up when they can join in with what Mummy does around the house or copy what they've seen in a shop, for example. It's actually also a very important part of a child's development, as it helps them to build confidence, communication skills, problem solving and physical development to name a few! I think learning through play is so important and am always keen to encourage it. Many of my children's toys are role-play toys and one of the most recent additions is this realistic Casdon Dyson Cordless Vacuum Cleaner which I was sent to review.

Every evening I love a quick browse of the forums of a well-known parenting website, particularly threads where people are having a good rant. A few months ago I came across a thread saying that people who wear mama merch (like Selfish Mother jumpers) are “smug”. Well, that stopped me in my tracks, because I'm someone who has several of these kind of tops. Eeek!

Does wearing mama merch make me "smug"?
