Teletubbies Magazine Review

When big J was growing up Teletubbies dominated our TV and also big J's toy box. He absolutely loved Teletubbies and had lots of Teletubbies toys including talking ones, a phone, books, even a Noo Noo that moved along the floor. Teletubbies were so popular, they were everywhere and you just had to love them. When the Teletubbies made a comeback I was so excited because little J is the perfect age and I knew he would love Teletubbies just like his big brother did. I wasn't wrong. Our house has been filled with various Teletubbies toys over the past 9 months and now little J has just received the Teletubbies magazine.

CBeebies Play Time DVD Giveaway

As you all know already little J loves CBeebies whether its watching it on TV, visiting CBeebies land at Alton Towers or playing the CBeebies apps he is addicted. When we received the new CBeebies Play Time DVD he was so excited. Seeing 12 of his favourite shows on the box he instantly asked to watch it. Over 2 hours long he watched it on and off throughout the day and it was definitely a hit.

Peter Rabbit And Friends - The Tale Of The Great Breakout

Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit seem to be everywhere I look at the moment whether it's the classic tales or the new updated episodes which you can see on CBeebies. We are actually a fan of both and whilst the originals took me back to my childhood the bright and bold colourful Peter Rabbit and Friends is a big hit with little J.

A Twirlywoos and Bing Day

Little J has become quite obsessed with cars and his garage that he received for his birthday. He wants to play with it all the time and even though I love watching him play with the garage, he so many other toys that I know he would enjoy too. So we had a garage free day and enjoyed playing with two of his favourite characters, Twirlywoos and Bing

Q Pootle 5 - Pootle The Explorer DVD Giveaway

I can't believe it's been 18 months since we last reviewed Q Pootle 5 DVD. Little J is such a fan of the show and we are both so excited for the releases of Q Pootle 5 - Pootle The Explorer on DVD. Although we have CBeebies on TV I do like to have a back up of DVD's they keep little J entertained  especially on car journeys or when we go away.

Teletubbies Toys Review

You may have read last week that a very special and exciting box turned up. Inside was a selection of the new Teletubbies toys range and we were chosen to try them out. Teletubbies was such a big part of big J life when he was growing up and I am so pleased they are back now that little J is a toddler. When it came to opening the box we were so excited to find out what was inside. Little J was jumping around when he saw all the coloured tissue paper inside the box, it was like Christmas.

Little J Loses His Favourite Bing Bunny

Went we went to Cyprus last Summer little J took a handful of toys. His Winnie the Pooh taggy which he has had since he was born, some cars, his doctors kit and his Bing Bunny. Now if you read my blog you will know that Bing Bunny hadn't been with us very long but he instantly became a favourite and became little J's bedtime buddy along with taggy. When little J was helping to pack his suitcase both Bing and taggy were the first things in the Trunki.

This was the last time little J and Bing napped together after lunch, the next day we lost him.

Twirlywoos - There's Somebody At The Door DVD Review

 When I first saw the Twirlywoos on Cbeebies I knew instantly that little J would love it. Its colourful, fun, cute and educational. However, I didn't expect to like it myself but I do. I think its a great show and I can actually watch a whole episode without thinking ' what is it?' to myself like I have done in the past with other children's programmes.

Twirlywoos features the adventures of four adorable characters, Great Big Hoo, Toodloo, Chickedy Chick and Peekaboo. You can join in there adventures aboard the Great Big Boat.

In The Night Garden Live - The Ninky Nonk Show Review

In The Night Garden Live is touring at the moment and last month we visited the purpose built showdome in Manchester. Little J has never been to a show before so we were unsure whether he would like it. He loves In The Night Garden and has met Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy many times in Alton Towers. He gets so excited when he see's them so we decided we would take him along.

The Alton Towers Hotel

I wasn't going to blog about our recent visit to Alton Towers as I have blogged so many times already about Alton Towers but we did so much over the three days we were there so I wanted to give it a mention. We only decided to stay over very last minute and we managed to get a really good deal on the Alton Towers Hotel. We originally booked for just Saturday but later extended it to Friday and Saturday.

Octonauts Arrive At CBeebies Land

Alton Towers is a special place for us, we try to go many times a year especially on special occasions. To celebrate little J's birthday we took him to CBeebies land in Alton Towers. The Octonauts have arrived this year so it was a perfect chance for us to try out the new rollercoaster.

Mr Tumble's Circus Is Coming To Town

I think if you are a regular reader you will now that we are a huge CBeebies fan and Justin Fletcher / Mr Tumble is a favourite of ours. We recently reviewed his new album and little J loves it.
Last year at Lollibop Justin announced that he was going on tour in 2015 and I was so excited as I knew little J would be a little bit older and would appreciate the show a lot more than he did at Lollibop.
