Lego Star Wars

Posted on , by Jackie in Kids. Comments Off

If you have a son who is over the age of 8 and loves Star Wars, then this Star Wars Lego set is brilliant. It’s the Republic Gunship. It is a massive box jammed full of Lego mini figures and it has a separate speeder, which my son tells me is a kind of space motorbike. This is an added bonus because it is two toys in one.

How to Choose the Best Ereader for Your Cool Child

Posted on , by Jackie in Kids. Comments Off

Last Christmas I bought my son has a Kindle Paperwhite, which he loves. I decided on a Kindle because I wanted him to read. Other devices, like tablets, have too many distractions, and expecting an emerging teenager to ignore those is asking just too much.

Because it is an electronic device the Kindle is very cool and so it ticks many boxes. But which device is best for you depends on why you are buying it, and to be honest the array of devices is a little overwhelming. See the article in the link below.

This article will help you through the mist!

Mini trampolines for kids

Posted on , by Jackie in Kids. Comments Off

Mini trampolines are perfect for keeping your child happy during those long cold winter months.

They are designed to be brought into the house and they easily fit into any average sized room.

My son was given his mini trampoline on his third birthday. His granny sent it over from Scotland, so it arrived in the post, which shows that they are neither too big nor too heavy.

He had a great time and bounced on it so happily for many years.
This Fold & Go Mini Trampoline is newer and has more safety features than mine, but essentially it is the same toy. Great for winter exercise and to help your kids let off some steam.

Instill style at an early age with ride-on toys

Posted on , by Jackie in Featured, Kids, Luxury Gifts. 3,138 comments

Style and good taste are both taught at an early age. There are some truly dreadfully tacky toys on the market and I am constantly hunting down well-designed toys and games for my own family. I love these ride-on cars and bikes, especially those made of wood. When you buy one of these for a child, you are creating a family heirloom that can be used for future generations.

Ride-on toys for toddlers

Posted on , by Jackie in Kids, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Cute, stylish and fun toys

Although these ride-on toys are recommended for youngsters from eighteen months and up, I have found that younger babies love them too and use them as walking aids when they begin to take their first tentative steps. But these are so much more. Don’t you think that they are wonderful items to have around the home? (Especially the ladybug and the cow for me!)
