Fisher-Price My Potty Friend

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray! Daughter likes it and uses it!, 17 April 2015
My little girl has FINALLY (!!) started using a potty - I think she really fell in love with the idea of her potty singing to her when she has done a wee on it.

It really does look like a very miniature little toilet. There are sensors in the base of the potty itself which are in contact with sensors on the removable pot section. When the sensors in the removable section get wet it starts singing and congratulating your child. It is worth noting that after use, the pot needs thoroughly drying after washing out or else it will continue singing!

The flush doesn't make a particularly realistic sound, but it does make a sound and my two year old always likes to 'flush' it after use.

There is also a loo paper holder which can be pulled out from the other side from the flush.

Overall, this has worked well for us. Transition to the loo may be difficult in that my little girl likes her potty so much... But that is a whole new battle to come...

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 14 April 2015
If you have concerns regarding getting your child reading, this is a good book to read. It isn't that long, but it does give lots of explanations as to why children may be reluctant to read and give some ideas to get children excited about books and reading.

The book emphasises the point that it is very normal for children to be reluctant to read. It also stresses that reading is a gift and something to be enjoyed and made a thing of in terms of offering books as prizes and presents etc. I think a really important point that the author makes is that children are more likely to read and love reading when they see their parents reading and have books around the house.

Overall, it is an useful little book for anyone with concerns or simply wants to further encourage their child to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good product, 14 April 2015
This spray has proved to be absolutely invaluable in our household.

We have two dogs. Importantly (related to the use of this spray), we have young children!

The spray cleans up the dog bed very well when there is sick etc on it. Our terrier occasionally gets a dodgy stomach and we clean up the bed easily with this.

It is the children and their spills and accidents we have used the spray mainly for though! When food is dropped, drinks are spilled etc - this spray is a lifesaver. It has got everything off the floor so far from Ribena through to curry. It also gets paint out of clothes. Somehow, one of my daughters seems to get as much paint on herself as on the paper and Vanish wasn't working on it terribly well. If I use this stuff and then put the clothes in the wash, it has worked really well so far.

It's claim regarding blood does also work. It has removed blood from our carpet - I had a pretty bad cut on my knee and it really did bleed. We used this pretty quickly afterwards and there are no stains on the carpet now.

So, all in all, this is a really good product and it is one I am glad that we discovered!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice bottle... but...., 14 April 2015
This review is from: Peppa Trop Bottle
These bottles are really nice for any Peppa Pig fan. This bottle got my youngest daughter drinking from 'normal' bottles as opposed to baby bottles. So all in all it is a nice bottle which encourages little ones to drink!...

However, it is impossible to clean inside the straw properly. Totally impossible. And it slowly gets more and more gunge in it along with some mould. They don't last that long until this happens, and I can't just keep buying the wretched things!

So yes, nice bottle. Shame about not being able to keep it clean enough for use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daughter really likes it, 12 April 2015
This is a good toy! My four year old really likes it and has played with it a lot.

As with most Sylvanian Families toys, you don't get all the characters pictured on the box. You get one character with this toy - the owner of the fish and chip van!

The van comes with lots of pieces such as fish, chips, ketchup, chairs and much more (there is a full list above in the Amazon product description so I won't list it all here!...). Some of these pieces are REALLY small - so worth just being cautious if there are younger siblings around in terms of both swallowing bits and losing bits.

The van is well made and seems strong enough for lots of play. My daughter combines it with other Sylvanian Families sets and also with some of her Playmobil sets - so she spends hours using her imagination and setting up different scenarios.

Recommended!

Chinese Lanterns with Lights - Purple/blue/red - Solar LED - Nylon Lamp for Outdoor

5.0 out of 5 stars Different, safe and look nice, 12 April 2015
These Chinese Lanterns are different and a really welcome addition to the area in which we barbecue in the summer. Being solar, they are very safe, and don't eat either electricity or batteries!

In the pack you get three lanterns - in this particular pack purple, blue and red. You can get other colour selections from the same seller - so its worth taking a look to see which you prefer.

When they first arrive, they are flat. They are dead easy to put together though. The shape is held by a wire inner - you just move the solar panel, pop the wire inside the body of the lantern, put the solar panel back on, making sure it's turned on. You are now good to go. Get them outside to lap up the suns rays!

On the top of each lamp, there is a plastic hook so that the lamp can be hung up.

I hung mine up on the washing line for the day!... At night they turned on no problem - and they look pretty and different to the other solar lights I have in the garden. They are not going to give you enough light to see what you're doing in the dark - but they are decorative and add to the atmosphere in the garden.

I'm really looking forward to the summer when I will really appreciate these lanterns and get the most use out of them.

I was given this item to test and to provide an honest review.


Damero Large Diaper Tote Satchel Bag with Changing Pad and Stroller Straps (Sweet Heart)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really lovely bag, 10 April 2015
I absolutely love this bag - it is well made, looks great and is ideal for anyone who wants to carry around a changing bag for their young child.

The bag has several compartments.

On the outside of the bag and on the front is a large zipped compartment - which would be ideal for anything you want to grab quickly like mobile phone, keys, snacks etc. There is a similar sized compartment on the outside of the bag on the back. Again, really handy for anything you want to hand.

On each end of the bag are compartments with drawstrings. Quite handy for popping a bottle in whilst on the move.

When you open the main compartment of the bag (which is zipped), you will find a spacious and practical inside. In addition, there are different compartments in there - so you can use one compartment for wet wipes, another for nappies etc. There are six of these in total, with elasticated uppers - really handy so you know where everything is. The main section is plenty big enough for a change of clothes or two and anything else you need to carry around. At the end of the main compartment inside the bag is an insulated pocket in which you could keep bottled milk. There is also another zipped compartment inside. So basically - lots and lots of different storage compartments - lots of space - and the it is easy to keep everything organised!

With this bag, you also get a changing mat. It matches the exterior of the bag and closes with a piece of Velcro.

Finally, you get a see-through plastic pouch, with a zip on the top, where you could pop in anything wet or anything that you don't want to get all over everything else in the bag.

The shoulder strap is removable. The bag itself has some good strong handles to carry it with. But should you also require the shoulder strap, it is adjustable.

There are also stroller straps which attach to the pushchair with Velcro, and mean you can carry it more easily attached to the pushchair!

Overall, this is a really good quality changing bag. I love the heart pattern, and I like the fact that everything can be kept in place and organised inside the bag itself!

I was sent this item to test and to provide an honest review.

I really like it - recommended!
