Have You Seen The Cybex Priam?

I am a big fan of CYBEX and Oscar has had two of their fab car seats over the years. With CYBEX you always know that you child is travelling in the up most comfort and the quality is always amazing.

Keira Knightley, PRIAM, £510, Carrycot in Black Beauty, £250

Cybex have recently released the Priam and even celebrity's have been spotted with it. Recently Keira Knightley, the British BAFTA nominated actress, was spotted out and about in London with her new arrival in the stylish CYBEX PRIAMOther famous fans include Liv Tyler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, Katherine Heigl, Matt Damon, Gisele B√ľndchen, Rosamund Pike, Coco Rocha, Michelle Hunziker and Natalie Portman. The new PRIAM retails for £510 wit the optional extra of the carrycot which is £250. I love the look of the PRIAM, it is super stylish with it's modern and sleek frame with funky white tyres on the wheels. I love it in the black beauty and white wheels but it also comes in seven different colours and there is a choice of three different types of wheels; light, trekking and all terrain and even an extra attachment to change the two front wheels in to skis for the snowy weather, I have never seen anything like this before.

It is functional pushchair that is also a design object on wheels, the PRIAM’s genius is to combine beautiful form with exceptional function. The PRIAM is extremely sturdy and versatile yet incomparably light. One frame fulfils three functions, taking babies from their first months right up to their early childhood. The PRIAM can be used as a pram with a matching carrycot, as a travel system with one of the award-winning CYBEX infant car seats and later as a luxurious buggy, that can be either forward or backward facing. There are wheels to suit every surface including sandy beaches, while for snow and ice the PRIAM is equipped with ski attachments, as well as a kickboard for young siblings.

I absolutely love the look of the new PRIAM!

Review: Room To Grow Blue Abrial Wall Clock

I absolutely love the Room To Grow online shop. It is the one stop shop for Children's beds, bedroom accessories and bedroom furniture. We have brought quite a few bits for their shop over the last couple of years from a mattress protector to bedding sets. I have always had a good experience when ordering from Room To Grow so when I was asked to do a review for them I was really pleased.

We were given the opportunity to choose a bedroom clock for Oscar. I chose the Abrial Wall clock which is blue and green. Oscar's bedroom is decorated in neutral colours as we didn't know if he was a boy or girl when I was pregnant and still has his zeddy and parsnip border. We are in the process of buying a new house so we didn't see the point in decorating Oscar's room so adding blue accessories and a boyish mirror has made it a bit more grown up for him and then when we move he can choose whatever decor he wants.




I showed him their selection of clocks so he could decide for himself which one he wanted. The Abrial wall clock comes in blue or pink and has nice big raised numbers on it so it is easy for your little ones to read and if your little one is learning the time it is nice to have a lovely clock in your child's bedroom. It takes one AA battery and has a small hook on the pack which makes it really easy to set up and hang. The Abrial wall clock is currently reduced to £17.96 and for the price you are getting a really lovely, chunky, good quality clock that hopefully will last forever! It is a cool design so in terms of Oscar growing to old to have it in his room I think it will last for a long time yet as it's perfect for younger children through to their teenage years.



Oscar is really pleased with his 'big boy clock' and having it in his room has suddenly made him really interested in time and wants to learn how to tell it, which is great.

Disclaimer: We were sent the Abrail Wall Clock for the purpose of this review, however all opinions are completely honest and my own.

Review and Vlog Of The Bunny Jump Game From University Games

AS you may have seen me write last month, we are ambassadors for University Games which you can imagine for Oscar being asked to review fun games is a dream come true. Last month we told you all about 'Don't Rock The Boat' and today I not only wanted to tell you about the 'Bunny Jump' game we have made a short two minute video to show you how fun and easy to play the game is.



Bunny Jump is a fun game for two to four players for children aged five years and over. The game is really easy to set up and the instructions are so simple to follow. Oscar got the game straight away and absolutely loves playing it.



Safely sitting on top of his burrow, Bugsy as we have named him watches over his yummy carrot field. You pull out the carrots, as many as the spinner tells you to pull and you have to be careful not to frighten him! You then have to be ready to catch him when he jumps in the air! The player who’s collected the most carrots when the game ends wins. Oscar was so focused as he really wanted to catch the bunny!

It is a fun, family game which is perfect to keep your little ones entertained during the Summer holidays. Here is the video of how we got on and Oscar unboxing his new game!

Review: The Lascal Maxi Buggy Board From Cheeky Rascals

Whilst away on holiday last week in Tenerife we took the Lascal Maxi Buggy Board from Cheeky Rascals for Oscar to use if his legs got tired. The Buggy Board Maxi can be used for children up to six years old as it is much wider than the smaller board. We used it a lot when we took some day trips out to the water park, Siam Park and the Zoo, Loro Parque in Tenerife. They were both really long days out so Oscar got quite tired in the afternoon and just hopped on to the Buggy Board which usually he would ask for one of us to carry him, which would of been hot and uncomfortable in the 32 degree heat.



I fitted the Buggy Board on to Archie’s stroller before we went away which was quick and easy to do. The instructions in the box are really clear and in four simple steps: 1. Fitting the straps, 2. Trimming them, 3. Putting the plastic screws the board attaches too to the one of the three different holes that makes it perfect for your child and that your feet don’t hit it when you are walking and 4. Then clicking the Buggy Board on to the attachment.




It also comes with a strap so when you are not using it you can put the strap around one of the handles of your stroller and clip the buggy board up so it isn’t in your way. Having the board attached to your stroller doesn’t make it any more difficult to push or steer, in fact having the extra two wheels made it more sturdier when I had a heavy changing bag on the handle of our stroller too.




Oscar enjoyed being on the board and found it really fun and I think the board itself is a great idea, especially for children like Oscar who is five that might get a bit tired on a long day out but is far to big to go in a pushchair (and wouldn’t be seen dead in one) and it meant we didn't have to carry him or give him a piggy back. Also when travelling with the Buggy Board I kept it attached to our stroller right up until we got on the plane where I handed my stroller over to go in the hold and then unclipped the board and took it on to the plane as hand luggage and popped it into the over head storage compartment. As it is so light it was quick and easy for us rather than it getting thrown around in the aeroplane hold.



When I got home I am going to order another set of the clips to attach them to my bigger everyday pushchair so I can use that to with the buggy board. The Lascal Buggy Board fits most pushchairs and strollers and you can check on the Cheeky Rascals website to see if yours is compatible. The Buggy Board is £65 on the cheeky rascals website and they also sell spare parts, a seat for the buggy board and also the smaller mini board. You can use the buggy board from two years old so could save mums and dads buying a double pushchair.

The Cheeky Rascals online store have lot's of great products so check out their website!

Review: My1stYears.com Personalised My First Year Photo Frame

As you have seen on my blog before we are big fans of My1stYears.com and I have reviewed a few items for them before plus brought loads too. My1stYears.com is a lovely website that has gorgeous personalised baby gifts and really special gifts for christenings and special occasions. There is also currently a huge sale running across loads of toys and gifts on their site! So don't miss it.



When I was asked to choose something to review I wanted to find a special keepsake for Archie, so when I came across the personalised my first year frame I knew it was perfect. The frame itself is made from wood and glass and opens up like a book with spaces for smaller photos for 12 months worth of photos, then a large frame for a photo of your little ones first birthday picture. You can personalise it too and I had 'Archie' written on the bottom.



The months have flown by since Archie was born and it is nice to look at each photo that was taken every month to see how much he has changed already in this short period of time, its amazing!



The my first year frame would make a gorgeous new baby or baby shower present and as the frame is cream it is a perfect unisex colour. The frame is a great price for a personalised gift at only £25.00 and it comes in a My1stYears gorgeous green gift box with a white ribbon.


For a special unique gift take a look at the My1stYears website for a huge range of clothes, toys, gifts and more.
