Our lives are so busy at times that it can be all too easy to focus only on the negative and tiring things that have happened during the week. To counteract this, every week I join the #HappyDaysLinky run by the lovely Katy (whatkatysaid.com) and Sian (quitefranklyshesaid.com) to reflect on all the moments of the past week that have made me happy.

I don’t know where this week has gone,

I was first introduced to the Love Millie range when I read a review on The Pramshed. I absolutely loved the story behind the brand and how cute the products looked. When I got the the end of the post and realised there was a competition to win a personalised t-shirt and baseball cap I jumped at the chance as I knew my daughter would love them. To my surprise I actually won!

My daughter has just hit that age where she loves dolls and babies and also loves ‘swimming’ in the bath. So, when I was asked if we would like to review the Bloopies Baths Doll from IMC Toys it was an easy yes.

Find out what my three year old thought of the new bloopies bath doll range ...

Bloopies Bath Dolls come in 6 different characters, all with their own unique swimsuit and matching flippers and snorkel mask. When you hold them under water and press their tummy they can squirt water out of their snorkel and blow bubbles.

Both of my kids have very definite opinions on what they do and don’t like to wear, so when I was asked if I would like to try out Contrado’s custom clothing collection it was a resounding yes.

Contrado can custom print a range of different clothing items for men, women and children. We opted for a t-shirt for both of the kids. When I told them they could design their own tops to have anything on that they wanted they were very excited.

When we first saw the trailers for The Boss Baby film we knew it was right up our street and M was desperate to go to the cinema to see it. Lucky for him, my mum also wanted to see it and took him one Saturday afternoon for some one of one time. He came back full of tales about how great it was and I was a tiny bit jealous I hadn’t been able to go (there was no way L was ready to sit through a full film in a cinema).

Last week we were kindly sent the Wobbly Worm game by Spin Master Toys in exchange for an honest review and I was really eager to try it out. L is only just beginning to get the concept of playing games where you take it in turns and I was looking for something that we could all play together. Aimed at children from 3+ Wobbly Worm is a great option.
