Review. The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen

Winter is almost upon us and one of the monsters favourite things to do is spend an afternoon snuggled up on the sofa underneath a fluffy blanket and read books. The Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Anderson are perfect for such an afternoon!



Review. Sands Alive Soft Modeling Sand.

When you live at the seaside there is one thing people always say ''Oh it must be so nice to have the beach close by'', which, well,  I mean it is BUT I'll admit, we rarely go in the summer let alone the winter! That's not to say the monsters don't ask frequently to go to the beach and build sandcastles...



Review. The Snowman and The Snowdog. Penwizard Personalised Christmas Books for Children.

When Penwizard emailed and asked if we would like to review a book from their Christmas range of personalised books, I SCREAMED yes! After reviewing their personalised Peppa Pig books previously I was very excited to see the Christmas range....



Please note...I have pixelated the name on the front to protect identity.

#ToddlerApprovedTuesday Week 56.

My faves from last week included Meals and Makes caterpillar craft and Coombe Mill shared a great personalised pirate table and chair (that I may be persuading the hubby that the monsters need!). Be sure to go pop over and check them out.
