Disney Mickey Mouse Board Book Library Review

This month as a Parragon Book Buddy we were sent this delightful Disney Mickey Mouse Board Book Library set. I just loved the vibrancy of the books, it really caught the boys eyes too. Like most children, they love Mickey Mouse, Rowan in particular so they were more than happy to read the books one after the other. They soon got engrossed in the short stories and colourful illustrations. The little library contains six short and sweet stories, the books are board books so are very robust and ideal for younger children. Rowan soon discovered an illustration on the back […]

I recently started thinking that instead of treating ourselves, our money should be going on something more sensible. Yes, the odd treat once in a while is fine. However, if you want to be […]

Essential Elements for Kids’ Bedrooms

There are a few essential things I don’t think you can […]
