An open letter to all the jingle ladies… mind your baubles!?!

  The other week we went along to the Ideal Home Show Christmas in Olympia, London. Looking back… perhaps it was a mistake to bring Little Button. But who would have guessed that a bunch of Christmas loving lovelies could be so… well!?! You’ll see what I mean in a second.       An open letter to all the jingle ladies… mind your baubles!?!     Dear Jingle ladies,…

7 keep-them-busy kids advent calendars – 2018

  Ok. I did it. I only went and bought Little Button a kids toy advent calendar. And that was after my big rant the other day about kids book advent calendars. *Ground swallow me now.   The only thing I can add in my defence is that it is a proper advent calendar with windows.

Kids book advent calendars – yay or nay?

  It’s that time of year when all the major Christmas advent calendars are being wafted under our noses. Gone are the days where you had to ‘enjoy’ a little cheap square of chocolate (that no one really wanted to eat) and a sweetly illustrated Christmas scene or character. These days it’s all about being big, fun and lux. And that’s not just the grown-ups calendars either.   From toys…
