paw patrol

 

Having burst onto our screens for the first time last year, teaching that there is no adventure too big and no pup too small, the Paw Patrol delighted children and their parents, and this summer their amazing activities are back again. From fighting fire and rescuing monkeys to aiding baby owls, the Paw Patrol is always on guard in Adventure Bay. Marshall, a clumsy firefighting pup, is all action, but combined with Chase – the leading police pup – they make the perfect duo to tackle any problem – as long as it does not involve cats or feathers, because Chase is horribly allergic!

No matter how big the task, the fun-loving friends will always have smile on their faces. But have they finally met an obstacle they cannot overcome? When Ryder goes on a hike along Big View Trail he gets into trouble – will he be able to rally the troops in time?

Needless to say both boys enjoyed watching the DVD and will love watching it over and over ,

Personalised Velour Bunny Hooded Jacket review

 

Happy Easter holidays all !! Here at Baby-A we have had the pleasure of working with “My 1st Years” a company which provides lovely personalised baby gifts. We have received a beautiful,soft velour jacket for Ronnie to model and we are very impressed!

My 1st Years was founded in 2010 with the focus on “… baby gifts that were unique, fashionable yet affordable…” they soon realised however, that this would not make them unique enough so that is when “…personalisation became the key to form our company.”

My 1st Years sell a range of gorgeous baby clothes along side a wide choice of gifts for all members of the family.

We received Ronnie’s jacket in good time and it was delivered by courier. It was packaged in a stylish box and wrapped in tissue paper. It was a pleasure to open as there was an attention to detail in the packaging which added a nice touch. Excitedly (with the help of Sydney) we unwrapped the tissue to find a really cute, soft jacket with bunny ears!!! We opted for Ronnie’s name to be in grey and it was a good choice, other options available were pink and blue.

The fabric of the jacket is very soft, perfect for spring days. It looks and feels lovely quality and there is a certain luxury to it. He feels so cuddly in it…cute cute cute !! We especially like the detail to the cuffs and hood which have a delicate bunny print on them. We have never had personalised clothing for the boys so it was lovely to receive something different. We feel that this piece of clothing is special and something that we can keep even after Ronnie grows out of it.

The bunny jacket comes in sizes 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 months. Ronnie’s jacket is 6-12 months which is perfect as it fits,but there is still plenty of room for growth.

If you have a newborn on the way or were looking for Easter baby gifts Baby-a recommend My 1st Years. We feel that they offer a great service and sell quality, distinguished products.

For more baby gifts check out. My 1st Years

They have currently launched their Easter campaign where for every bunny sale they will donate 5% to the bunny sanctuary.

Little Bird Told Me Baby on Board Sign Review

We were very happy to receive a Baby on Board sign to review from the folks at The Little Bird Told Me who have a website where you can buy baby and toddler items. We especially love their range of Baby Play Mats and Play Gyms

Little Bird Told Me consists of a team of nursery specialists who are dedicated to making the world of little people and grown-ups that little bit more special. The product ranges offer an exceptional choice of developmental activity toys, innovative infant rocking animals & horses and nursery accessories, all of which are presented in beautiful eco-friendly gift style packaging.

We received the Baby Bear on board sign, they have two Baby on Board signs available Softly Snail and Baby Bear.

004

The sign is of good quality, it measures 24 x 15 x 6 cms and it is hand washable. The fact it is made from fabric instead of plastic is lovely .
It is eye catching and does the most important thing, in that it alerts other motorists that there is a baby in the car. It has a rubberised suction cap and is easily secured to your car window.
003
You can also buy their products from stockists and there is a list of these on their website.
It costs £7 and would make an ideal gift for new parents. I would recommend the Baby Bear sign to any one looking to buy one.The Little Bird Told Me also use eco-friendly gift product packaging :)

Parragon Book review

books

We received two beautiful books from Parragon Books to read; Sunshine and Snowballs and Goodnight Little One. For Sydney this was great timing as he as only just recently began to really enjoy bedtime stories. He is very particular about which books he likes and he certainly has some firm favourites. Whether it is a stall to bedtime or whether he enjoys books he usually has three stories before he goes to sleep.

It was great to receive some new reading material not only for Sydney but for mummy and daddy as well.

Sunshine and Snowballs by Margaret Wise Brown

“From best-selling children’s author Margaret Wise Brown, comes a beautiful rhyming story of two children’s exploration of the seasons of a year. Explore the magical colours, sounds and sights of our natural world in spring, summer, autumn and winter through the eyes of a young boy and girl, brought to life with the stunning artwork of illustrator Charlotte Cooke.” (Parragon books)

Sydney instantly took to this book. The simple yet intriguing rhyming tells a beautiful story through the seasons and for Sydney it certainly grabbed his attention. When reading it he loves to look at the pictures. He is a big lover of nature and it’s elements, so to read about things that are real adds a magical, yet down to earth warming  feeling. Sydney loves creatures and there are plenty of them in this book!

Goodnight Little One by Margaret Wise Brown

“This beautifully illustrated magical story from best-selling author Margaret Wise Brown – creator of the children’s classics ‘Goodnight Moon’ and ‘Runaway Bunny’ – will enchant children and parents alike; it’s a perfect bedtime story for your little one.” (Parragon Books)

For some reason this book took a little longer for Sydney to warm to. It is now however a book  that he loves, especially when he is really sleepy. The illustrations are delicate and have a hazy sleepy feel.  This book  uses repetition and Sydney likes to finish each page off as it ends with…”close your eyes”  he finds it comforting and it makes him smile when he repeats the little line.bed

Here at Baby -A we found that these books are very appealing to Sydney and they are a pleasure to read.

Thank you Parragon Books for letting us sample your beautiful books;

Bunnie Knitwear- Toddler sweater review.

 

We love Bunnie Knitwear!!

jumpcloseIf you are looking for something alternative and luxury for your child to wear you need to take a look at Bunnie Knitwear, an online British company set up by Mary, “…a mother, nanny and now proud grandmother.” Joined by grand daughter Jade they present “…a range of children’s clothes hand knitted with Sirdar Supersoft Aran wool,  designed especially for children and toddlers.” 

 

We were lucky enough to be sent a gorgeous sweater for Sydney to try out. We received a cream cable knit sweater with a turtle neck, knitted with Sirdar Supersoft Aran. We found the wool to be very soft and gentle on the skin and of high quality. Sydney was very excited to try it on and daddy admired himjumperserious in it, as he said it was like a mini version of his cricket jumper. We thought that Sydney looked so cute in his jumper and he strutted around in it like he was on the cat walk. The only hand knitted items that Sydney had worn previously, was when he was a newborn and we hadn’t really come across anything since in high street shops etc. For us this toddler sweater is a winner and although it is not something we would have picked out initially for him to wear ( as we had not really thought of dressing Sydney in knitwear) we are so pleased to have it as part of Sydney’s wardrobe and we are definitely hand knitwear converts!

 

With the nature of the good old British weather we feel that this jumper will be so handy to have. It not only looks smart but would be a great piece of clothing to have in the pram bag for cool summer nights to save carrying coats and jackets around. We were sent a size 24 and it fits really well with some growing room. The sweaters come in red, grey and silver grey and are in a range of sizes.

Milo et Mimi Owen Fox – Baby Gifts Review

The postman turned up with Owen Fox and to Sydney’s delight he had a new friend to play with. We were sent Owen Fox to review from the beautiful online boutique Milo et Mimi.foxbox

Just to give a little background on Milo et Mimi, they offer alternative baby gifts, clothing and accessories which are all ethically sourced.

Founded in 2012 by London-based mum, Lena, Milo et Mimi’s brands have been purposefully chosen for their ethical approach or for their original and quirky designs, as well as high quality finish.”

With inspiring ranges their boutique presents a fresh approach to buying baby gifts /clothing  online. They have many exclusive brands so there is an air of quaint originality which we love at Baby-A!

Hazel Village is one of those exclusive brands and for the past couple of weeks Owen Fox has been well and truly put to the Sydney test. He has been for outings on the train, he has been stripped naked and thrown about and he has also been cuddled and kissed. He has been fully introduced to all of other Sydney’s toys.

owentoyOn unwrapping Owen Fox we found him to be a friendly little fellow, very soft and smartly dressed in a green tailed jacket. On his ear we found a great little tag;

Owen loves to go to his secret tree house and practice his dance moves. He says he’s such a nimble dancer because he has a low center of gravity. But the other animals, who have similarly low centers of gravity, say he just has lots of energy.”

He measures 15 inches tall and has dangly arms and legs so he is a good size soft toy. He is made from organic cotton and his eyes, nose and whiskers are said to be hand stitched which adds extra character and a uniqueness to him. We love the fact that his clothing can be taken off and that he is part of a collection so other friends could be added to go with Owen.

He has certainly made himself at home here and Sydney has loved spending time withowenlight him. We think that children of all ages would love him and he would make a lovely alternative gift. Thank you to Milo et Mimi for giving us the opportunity to review Owen Fox.

There is a whole range of Hazel Village animals to choose from and they would be ideal for all ages from newborn upwards.

For other gift ideas and a stunning range of clothing check out Milo et Mimi. They offer 10% off your first order.

Our top baby boy gifts

We thought that we would let you know what our top baby boy gifts have been so far. Sydney is now two years of age and when he was born he got some beautiful gifts including blankets, books and clothing. He was five months old for his first Christmas and was once again showered with some lovely gifts. His main present was a leapfrog learn and groove activity station which he loved!

For his first birthday, gifts began to get more exciting and his top toys were: a Thomas push and go train, a big truck, a steering wheel for his pram and mega blocs.

For his second Christmas his favourite toys were ; A mini Dyson hoover, a shopping trolley, Vtech toy garage and a Fireman Sam trike. He also got Disney Toy story characters which were bright and colourful.  Mr potato head was a great toy for learning boy parts and is a toy that he still plays with.

Sydney has just has his second birthday and he absolutely loves Thomas the tank engine and Postman Pat. He got Thomas take n play trains along with the track and Postman Pat’s Greendale rocket along with Postman Pat’s van. His other favourite was his very own push chair which he now pushes “Mr doggy” around in!

We will keep you updated on our favourite gifts as we feel it is useful if you need ideas for your own child or a gift for someone else …Christmas will soon be on its way…
