Review & Giveaway | Peppa Pig Laugh & Learn Laptop

Item sent for purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Peppa Pig. One of the most popular characters on kids TV to ever grace our screens. Jack absolutely adored her when he was younger and now his sister Olivia is at the perfect age for Peppa herself. Peppa is one of the words in her small vocabulary and she loves nothing more than sitting down and watching an episode either by herself or with her brother. She spots the magazines in the newsagents and the toys in the toy shops and always wants Peppa!

We were recently sent the Laugh and Learn laptop. The laptop is a fun and interactive toy that Olivia has really enjoyed playing with. It has a portable carry handle so it is easy for her to transport from place to place and has four different modes that they can play to help them learn new things such as colours, numbers and letters. I have been keen to get her an interactive toy like this as Jack really blossomed when he played with similar toys and I’d like the same to be said for Olivia too.

You can press the buttons at the bottom and be told what is on each button (the Discover mode). You can also find out which number/letter buttons match the pictures on the screen. Something I’ve really loved about this is that when Peppa is telling you about something, that particular image will light up on the screen. There is also the opportunity to answer questions (the Quiz mode) – Jack has helped Olivia with these as she doesn’t quite ‘get’ this yet. They can also find certain pictures and colours (What Can You Find? mode) or they can even hear different musical instruments (Music mode) There really is so much that this laptop can do.

The pictures are bright and colourful and easy to see – very eye catching indeed , the buttons are big enough for clumsy toddler hands and the screen is large enough for them to be able to see what is lighting up as Peppa speaks to them. Peppa’s voice and the music the laptop plays is very loud so be aware – but your kids will absolutely love this! Peppa’s voice is instantly recognisable too as is the theme tune that plays as you turn it on.

Olivia has been interacting really well with it. A lot of the time, she presses buttons at random as she is still a little young to understand in some senses BUT I have already noticed her adding new words into her vocabulary – for ages, she’s only been able to say the number two but she recently added one, three and four since the laptop arrived! Her hand eye coordination has also come on leaps and bounds – she can be a little clumsy sometimes but I’ve noticed that she’s often managing to do what she is trying to.

The laptop is a decent size, chunky too and very durable which is great when young hands are playing with it as we all know that they are very adept at pushing things away or trying to throw them.

As you can imagine, I’m a blogger and freelance writer so I always have my laptop out and Olivia has comically come and sat next to me on the sofa a couple of times whilst I am tapping away and started tapping away at her own – she really feels like she is doing her own work and can be just like Mummy!

Retailing at £19.99, the laptop is recommended for ages 2 and above – although Olivia is just under 2 and really enjoying it and learning from it. It requires 3xAA batteries which are included.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to aid their toddler’s learning – Olivia has really been enjoying playing with it and learning new things and it has been great seeing her enjoy herself and discover new things.

Check Out Britax Römer’s brand new ‘Made In Germany’ video and WIN a DUALFIX i-SIZE car seat worth £300+

I am a Britax Römer Ambassador which means that, from time to time, I will be sharing news and interesting stuff about the brand as well as running competitions in collaboration with them. Today I bring you their brand new ‘Made in Germany’ video and a chance to win one of their fantastic DUALFIX i-Size car seats, worth over £300.

The leaders in car seat safety have launched a new short film showing exactly why its ‘Made in Germany’ car seats stand for quality, longevity and excellent engineering, but above all, optimum child safety.

Britax Römer are pleased to debut their brand new ‘Made in Germany’ video, which aims to show parents the exceptional level of care and attention that goes into the production of each and every Britax Römer car seat. While also communicating the unique fact that Britax Römer is one of the only UK car seat manufacturers both producing and selling its car seats in Europe. You can see the full video here or embedded below:

 

The traditional children’s brand Römer was founded in 1871 in Geislingen, Germany. 150 years later with its British Counterpart Britax, it has now become one of the world’s leading child car seat and stroller manufacturers. Despite global success, the company has never lost its local roots and is proud to be one of the few child car seat manufacturers still producing its products in Europe. Today, over 90% of Britax Römer car seats sold in Europe are manufactured in Europe and more than 60% of its car seats are made at Britax Römer’s state of the art factory in Leipheim, Germany.

The video shows a journey through the child car seat production process: from design and engineering, to the crash test facility and production. At the heart of the video are the people behind the brand, 100% of which are real employees from its German factory; showing the important human role that is played in the production of its car seats.

Using the slogan, “Made for our children, made for your children”, Britax Römer demonstrates its commitment to upholding the highest safety standards possible. It is this mantra that is instilled in all Britax Römer employees, from the production team, to the engineering team through to the management team. Nothing but the very best will do and everyone deserves the best when it comes to their child’s safety.

Rainbow Designs Talking Peter Rabbit Toy | Review & Giveaway

Rainbow Designs Talking Peter Rabbit Toy | Review & Giveaway

We were sent the Talking Peter Rabbit toy for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Peter Rabbit has always been one of Jack’s favourite TV characters. He used to watch CBeebies all the time and Peter Rabbit was one of his favourite shows to watch. Olivia has recently got into the show herself so when offered the chance to review the new talking Peter Rabbit toy from Rainbow Designs, I just knew that both the kids would be so excited!

The toy is super soft and is perfect for cuddles, as Olivia shows in the pictures below! She’s been running around with him constantly, pressing his tummy to hear him speak and cuddling up to him. Available from Argos both in store and online for just £18, the toy is suitable from birth and says 5 different phrases. He’s also wearing his famous blue coat and his green bag – so he can store all the veg he steals from Mr McGregor!

With phrases such as ‘Let’s hop to it!’ , ‘A good rabbit never gives up’ and ‘And all rabbits need a little help from their friends!’, he is instantly recognisable and I’ve been hearing them over and over as the kids pick him up and press his tummy. Another great thing is he came with batteries included which is great when you have an impatient Olivia, desperate to get her hands on him straight away!

Both Jack and Olivia have been loving playing with Peter Rabbit so far and pressing his tummy to hear him talk. I’ve even caught them fighting over it at one point as both wanted to play with it at the same time – oops!

The toy is excellent quality, super soft and perfect for children of all ages and we are very happy with it, just the quality we come to expect from Rainbow Designs. You can keep in touch with them over on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Now you’ve heard what we think of ours, how would you like the chance to win your very own talking Peter Rabbit toy? Just fill in the Rafflecopter below – this giveaway ends at 23.59pm on the 4th of August 2018. UK entries only please, good luck!
