Review: BRIO Cargo Railway Deluxe Set (33097)

We adore BRIO. I’ve said this so many times in my review. I love that the pieces are mostly wooden, well made and basically childproof! We have been fortunate enough to review a lot of BRIO toys in the last 2 years or so. Daisy has a great selection and when she outgrows something we are able to gift it on to a loved one, as it’s still in fantastic condition. Today we’ve got the BRIO Cargo Railway Deluxe Set to test out. I’m going to tell you lots about what you get in the box, share some pictures with you AND even a video too! Lucky you!

Trying Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles

My little daughter Daisy is a bit of a fussy eater*. She has FPIES, and multiple allergies, so it isn’t surprising really. We always liken Daisy to having days where she eats like a bird and days where she eats like a horse. This has got better in the last few months, but we are always conscious of trying new foods and giving her lots of fruits and vegetables. On the days where she doesn’t want to eat a lot, I like to make her a nice smoothie, to get plenty of goodness inside her. Recently we were invited to try the newly launched Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles for 3 – 6-year-olds. Today I want to share a few thoughts about them, and even share a little artwork that Daisy has created!

Playtime with the Tonka Power Movers

Daisy has such a love for figurines, toys and small world activities. She is really interested in vehicles and sounds while we are in the street. Diggers, motorbikes and planes, in particular, get a lot of questions from her. As they often make lots of noise, which Daisy gets a little scared by, I try and explain to her what they are doing, and why they make noise. This seems to pacify her and she absolutely loves playing with vehicles at home. We’ve been gifted a toy from the new Tonka Power Movers range, and I must admit I’ve been loving it myself too!

Review: Little Brian Paint Sticks + a competition to win your own!

As I work from home there are days where I just need to get things done, even if Daisy is here. On days like this, we love to get out our craft box and go nuts. Sometimes I leave Daisy to play by herself, and other days I like to craft with her, to have a break from working. For the last six months, I’ve been investing in new products, particularly ones that are low mess or simple for a toddler playing by herself to use. Paint Sticks have been a part of our craft box for most of the year and now I’ve got a fantastic review + competition to share with you!
