Review: Little Live Bizzy Bubs

We were sent a selection of Little Live Bizzy Bubs toys to play with, and Lydia has fallen a little bit in love with these teeny babies that all do different things.

Review: My First Bananagrams

Now that Lydia is in reception she is making great strides with both her reading and writing – she loves to spot digraphs in words, and has started to try and read all the signs and different words she sees when we are out and about. Georgie used to delight in this too and has turned into a complete bookworm, so both girls love the chance to play with words and letters with games like this one.… Continue Reading “Review: My First Bananagrams”
