Sylvanian Families Secret Island Playset Review

As a little girl my favourite thing to watch on tv was Sylvanian Families I absolutely loved it! And now iv been given the chance to review the Sylvanian Families Secret Island Playhouse and the Fox Family Set I couldn’t wait to open it up!

Ok, so I feel pretty confident in saying that I am sure that 99% of people know of Sylvanian Families. They have been around since 1985 and loved by so many people all over the world, young and old! Sylvanian Families are based on three concepts, Nature, Family and Love. Children can explore their imagination and learn to care and share with one another.

All of the families live in the Sylvanian village where they enjoy the world of nature, and children can play freely with their own imagination.

The Secret Island Playhouse is the perfect getaway for all of your Sylvanian Families, whisk them away for a fun filled adventure down at the beach, where they can relax and have fun. This set is made up of two parts the house and the beach, both can be played with as separate pieces or they can be stacked together and used as one.

My Sunday Photo

A rare moment. A childless night out with my husband to see Apollo 15 astronaut give a lecture. My amazing husband even bought me a piece of the moon!

My daughter has just started full time nursery and she is certainly taking it all in her stride.
She very much enjoys going and playing with all of her friends, some days she doesn’t actually want to leave!

Since I am now spending a lot more time with my 2 year old son, I have begun thinking about looking into childcare for him. As in him attending nursery possibly one or two days a week only for half days just to get him used to the concept and prepare him for when he starts school later next year.

He has been a bit of a handful lately, not listening and running off and I think that hopefully nursery could provide him with some basic discipline as well as providing him with an educational and social environment.

I do struggle to find ways to keep him occupied during the days, yes I take him for walks, to the park, make cakes etc with him but it’s the same every week. I think he could really benefit and enjoy the experience of a nursery setting.

I have only so far made some basic enquiries and have not yet actually visited any nurseries.

Have you put your little ones into pre nursery? What were your reasons? Did everyone agree with it? how did your child find it?
I really would love to hear your opinions before I decide for definite.

Wicked Uncle Challenge

Wicked Uncle recently challenged us to allow a grown up who has no children to buy toys for our children using their website. It is difficult to find the right gift when you don't know what interests children have. 

We chose a family friend who gladly accepted the challenge. Using wicked uncles website they were able to use the filters, shop by age, gender etc to find some suitable gifts. 

They reported back that they found the website really easy to use and chose some great gifts for our children. 

When our parcel arrived we all eagerly gathered around wondering what surprises lay in store!

On opening the box we discovered the following gifts;

My First Mini Greenhouse

Butterfly Garden

2x projector touches (1 Dinosaur, 1 Fairy)

The mini greenhouse really is great and I think it's fab for all ages. It comes with a compost disc, cress seeds, coleus seeds and giant sunflower seeds as well as gardening tools and instructions. 

It's so easy to use and we were quickly growing our own little garden. 

The butterfly house is my favourite, again great for all ages. We had to send off for our pot of 5 caterpillars via the website or post. When they arrived we had to leave them in the pot and we watched them grow incredibly fast and big until they turned into chrysalides and were ready to be moved into the butterfly garden for their amazing transformation into butterflies. 

It really was amazing to watch and the kids absolutely loved it and even more so when the day came to set them free. I was amazed by just how at ease they were with us picking them up and I even managed to pose some of them on various plants and flowers for photos. 

This really is the perfect gift and a great way to learn about nature.

We also received two projector torches, each comes with a number of projector discs so you can swap and change your photos. The kids had great fun projecting the images onto the wall creating a little show for us. 

Our Wicked grown up definitely won this challenge and Wicked Toys really do have some fantastic and unusual gifts for all ages.
