Mamasmartz Hands on Magnets; a God send

Mamasmartz Hands on Magnets

The Mamasmartz Hands on Magnets have been a God send

I think every parent has been guilty of buying some pretty useless stuff for their kids, especially when they are babies. I came across a product recently that I thought would be ideal for Sarah but totally and utterly useless for Aidan. They are the ‘Hands on Magnets’ from Mamasmartz, which are basically a car parking safety tool for kids.  Continue reading

Playzone, Celbridge review: Sarah having fun in the ball pool

Play centres, I love them and I also hate them. They can be dirty, noisy and serve diabolical coffee and even worse food. Kids, however, love them. They don’t see the dirt. They don’t drink coffee either!  Continue reading

Our genuine thoughts on Lottie Dolls

Lottie Dolls Review: Sarah and her beloved Muddy Puddles Lottie

We have a playroom packed to the gills with toys. Big ones. Small ones. Broken ones. Aidan and Sarah’s bedrooms are also packed with things to play with. It seems to be the story in most houses the length and breath of the country. Half of them are never played with. However, there’s one toy that Sarah consistently has in her hand since the minute it arrived to the house. It’s her Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll and a wee picnic set, also from Lottie Dolls.  Continue reading

Family break in the D Hotel and Funtasia: Aidan and Daddy Chambers outside The D Hotel in Drogheda

Would you beleive that up until last Saturday we had never all stayed together as a family in a hotel. It just didn’t appeal to me. I worried about all four of us being in a room together and I wondered what myself and Daddy Chambers would do once Aidan and Sarah were asleep.  Continue reading

Review: Rathwood Teddy Bear Picnic

I’m currently on holidays from the day job and when we returned from abroad last week it was safe to say I had the post holiday blues. When the kind folk at Rathwood asked us if we would like to experience their Teddy Bear Picnic event, we jumped at the chance. I figured it would be a nice way to round off the holliers.  Continue reading

Review: Cambrils Park Resort, Spain

Cambrils Park in Spain’s Costa Dorada; a Mecca for families during the summer months. We learned of the resort through a friend after I mentioned wanting to take our first ever holiday abroad this summer. That was in June 2015 and I was warned to book it immediately or otherwise I didn’t stand a chance of getting in to the holy resort. Yes, a full year in advance!  Continue reading
