5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories (of course!), not sure sure about the illustrations., 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The stories (mainly in their 70's "original" form) are delightful; the illustrations have been completely changed.

The children don't seem to mind (why should they) but I find the "modern" take - though simpler and brighter - far less interesting in its simplicity. As a child, I really enjoyed the richness, attention to detail and complexity of the illustrations. I remembered better than the wording of the stories.


How To Be a Baby, by Me, the Big Sister.
How To Be a Baby, by Me, the Big Sister.
by Sally Lloyd-Jones
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.57

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the rare books for "oder" children, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter "needed" this book when she turned three and her brother turned one.
It goes through examples of how much better it is to be a "big" girl than a wee baby (boy).
The key idea is : "big" girls have so much more fun. Babies live utterly dull and uninteresting lives.
It also ends with the idea that the baby will grow up and they'll have fun together - later.

It's ideally aimed at girls that are a bit older than 3 (early school years probably) but it still worked wonders for mine.

Excellent plot, dialogue, pace, twists and suspense.
We really enjoyed watching the six episodes and would have loved it to last a bit longer.


Pirate Pete's Potty: A Ladybird potty training book
Pirate Pete's Potty: A Ladybird potty training book
by Andrea Pinnington
Edition: Board book
Price: 4.73

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best buys, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We've bought a few books on potty training and this is one of the best.
The children love the idea of being a pirate, the idea of choosing underwear, of having to sit on a potty, the idea that the inevitable mistakes are ok and the cheers (if you press the thingy on the side).

I would have liked a picture on anatomy (but I suppose you can find in other books like "Once upon a potty"). It really helps the child understand what part of his anatomy he is supposed to work with. But then no book is perfect.

I have since gifted this book to a few friends and they have all said it had helped a lot.


4-Piece Boys All Cream Suit

4.0 out of 5 stars As expected - so bits great, some not at all., 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my 2.5 year old son. He wore it at a wedding.
He is medium size for his age.
I replaced the shirt as it looked a bit flimsy (but fine).
I could NOT use the trousers at all (the size was all wrong and the material was a different colour and you could see his underwear!). The legs were too long, the waist far too small.

The waist jacket and tie was just right and looked really good!

For the cost of this item, I was happy with my buy - but really, they could have just sent me a waist jacket and tie and not made the rest!

Long Sleeve Womens Shrug Bolero Cardigan Black Size 12
Offered by skyperfumes
Price: 2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Just right, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wore this Bolero at my sister's wedding. It completed a strapless dress. It looked just right.
I'm a normal size 12 and this fitted just right.
The material is a bit thin but sits just right.
It doesn't cover much of the front though (you couldn't add a button and close it as the sides are too far apart).


Brainstorm Toys 50cm Animal Globe
Brainstorm Toys 50cm Animal Globe
Offered by Just Childsplay
Price: 13.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Big bright fairly accurate animal globe, 8 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This huge (50 cm!) inflatable globe has been a hit with the children (from 2 year old to 7).

It shows all the countries and the animals that live in it. The colors are bright. It's mostly accurate. It's also quite study as it has been kicked around a little and hasn't burst. It comes with a whole list of names and is great to start talking either about the various countries and or animals. It smells quite strongly of plastic the first few weeks but not after.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle imaginative family-friendly stories, 8 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a 2 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. The adventures of this "little bear" is one of their favorite (along with Peppa Pig, Charlie and Lola, Humpf, Pocoyo, Tinga Tinga Tales, Raa Raa the Noisy Lion, and Max and Ruby). It's great to have something they can both enjoy.

Little Bear lives with his Mum and Dad in the countryside (and has no other siblings apparently) in a world where humans and animals get along. He has "adventures" (he bakes cakes, paints, learns to camp) . There is nothing frightening. It's all very loving gentle and imaginative. (It is an American DVD and the accent is noticeable.)

Episodes last about 7 to 8 minutes.

Little Bear Movie: "When Little Bear and Father Bear go camping, Little Bear makes a new friend named cub. Cub is a bear, just like Little Bear, but he lives in the wild. Little Bear and Cub discover they have lots to learn about each other's worlds.

Little Bear's Wish: also includes Little Bear's Shadow, A Present for Mother Bear, To Grandmother's House, Grandfather Bear, Mother Bear's Robin, Hiccups, Date with Father Bear, Pudding Hill, Little Bear's Mermaid, Father's Flying Flapjacks, Maracas.

What Will Little Bear Wear: also includes Hide and Seek, Little Bear Goes to the Moon, Birthday Soup, Polar Bear, Gone Fishing, Up all Night, Little Bear's Bath, Father Bear Comes Home, A Flu, Exploring, Fishing With Father Bear.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 year old & 19th month old baby LOVE this, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best buy ever. My 3 year old girl and 19 month old boy are enthralled by the highly imaginative world of Lola, Charly's funny younger sister. The stories are quite complex, quirky, bright, gentle and just the right length.
