Buy Kids Shoes Online – Hours Of Fun with Heelys Shoes!

Kids outgrow shoes very quickly, we parents know that. We all know how tiresome it is to take kids shopping for shoes, long queues and trying to reason with kids their choice of shoes. So I thought to myself why not buy kids shoes online or at least have a look at what the online stores have to offer. That’s how I came across this fantastic collection of Heelys shoes on the Skatehut website. I would like share this with you in case you are looking for shoes for your kids .

Just remember, 2 wheeled shoes are aimed more for beginners whereas 1 wheeled shoes are for those who have already used Heelys before.

Baby Bjorn Baby Bouncer- Review of Bouncer Bliss

Baby Bjorn has got a good range of baby bouncers. I would like to tell you first why you would need a Baby Bjorn baby bouncer. Holding the baby all the time is not advisable as it tires the baby. Also, a parent has to shower, cook and do all other chores which can be difficult to do with a baby. One good option is getting a bouncer for the baby. Both my kids (as babies)used to play on a traditional bouncer, whilst I was cooking and gradually fall asleep on the bouncer .

If you are still debating whether you need a bouncer or not, then you need to think where you will keep the baby (when he/she is awake) and you need to do cooking or other household chores or go for a shower. This going to happen very often even though it is a parent’s best intention to finish all chores while the baby is asleep!

If you have decided that you do need a bouncer, go ahead and read my review of Baby Bjorn’s Bouncer Bliss to help you make an informed decision.


Review of Baby Bjorn’s Bouncer Bliss

Product name: Baby Bjorn Bouncer Bliss, Anthracite,Mesh

Price: £109.59

Where to buy: Amazon.co.uk

Age: Newborn to up to 2 years

Weight of the baby : Minimum weight 3.5 kg, Maximum weight 13 kg

My rating:4.5/5

 

Other features

  • Ergonomic design which means it gives good support to the baby’s head, neck and back. This is very important for the baby’s development. The fitted fabric seat distributes the baby’s weight evenly.
  • Bouncer comes with natural rocking, no batteries required. The bouncer is rocked either by the parent or by baby’s natural movements.
  • Bouncer can be used for a long time, from 0 to 2 years of age. Bear in mind minimum weight of the baby should be 3.5 kg and maximum weight should be 13 kg.
  • Seat is made of child friendly material and has been approved by Oeko-Tex Standard 100 as being free from harmful substances.
  • Fabric is easy to remove and clean. It is machine washable at 40 deg Celsius.
  • Bouncer can be used in 3 different positions of rest and play.
  • It is portable and can be folded flat. It occupies very little space when it is folded.
  • Available in mesh or cotton fabric and different colours like anthracite, black, navy blue and greige.

Pros

  • Non slip base, also bouncing doesn’t make any noise.
  • You can watch your child play and rest while you take shower or do your household chores. This would be the main reason you would need a bouncer as you cannot hold your baby all the time.
  • Once your child has learnt to sit unaided, you can turn the fabric around and convert the bouncer into a children’s chair!
  • Despite the high price, it is value for money
  • Easy to clean fabric. Mesh design is easier to clean than cotton especially if there are any milk spills. Mesh design also keeps the baby cool in the summers.
  • You can adjust the bouncer at 3 different angles depending on if you are using it as a sitting or a sleeping device.
  • It is strong,light and portable and can be easily carried to a friend or a relative’s house.
  • Very stylish but simple, award-winning design- different from the traditional design.
  • The rocking will also help to calm the baby or him or her to sleep. You can rock the bouncer with your foot too.
  • Neutral colour – so it can be used again if you plan to have more children.

Cons

  • Price is high. Expensive if you don’t intend to use it much. It will be worth it if you buy for your first child and then re use it if you have more children .
  • The mesh design is a little rougher than the cotton design .
  • Colour can be boring if you are looking for a colourful Fisher Price kind of bouncer.

How to Start A Home Based Business For Free – Wealthy Affiliate Review

The reason for letting you in on my little secret of how to start a home based business for free, is that I fully understand the hardships, parents have to go through with looking after children as well as earning a livelihood. It becomes harder if you do not have anybody to help you look after your children. Before I found Wealthy Affiliate, I was not getting anywhere with part time job hunting. I found one full time job at one point but I left it in 2.5 weeks. I just couldn’t cope with it and the kids as my husband also works full time!

Anyway, cutting my sad story short, as soon as I found Wealthy Affiliate, I felt I have found a purpose in life with which I could not only help parents like us (me and my husband) but also I found a way to recreate my identity after motherhood!

You need a computer – desktop or a tablet or a laptop to run this home based business. Ideally it is better if you have a desktop or a laptop.

So here is the review of Wealth Affiliate, which has changed my life !

What exactly is the difference between a Free Starter and a Premium Membership?

 

Do you actually make money on Wealthy Affiliate or is it a scam or a rip off?

Let me explain you this by telling you the pros and cons of Wealthy Affiliate :

 
Pros

 

 

  • Highly affordable – if you  go for premium membership – it is a very reasonable price
  • Value for money – the amount of training, support and resources that you get – the membership is more than worth it.
  • Detailed training- whatever route you choose – Online Entrepreneur Certification or Affiliate Bootcamp training- all the steps are explained in great detail. You can watch the trainings as many times as you want to get a solid foundation for your business.
  • Tasks at the end of every lesson. At the end of every lesson, you are given a task to complete- this will give focus and direction to your business. In case, you get stuck completing the task, help is always available.
  • After completing the trainings and through the membership, support and help is available all the time by the members including the co-owner, Kyle himself!
  • Site Support- if you have any technical issues with your website or your Wealthy Affiliate account – Site support is available all the time, every single day.
  • Community support – Wealthy Affiliate has got a fantastic community. They will help you if you are stuck with anything or to inspire you, motivate you or guide you or give you solutions to problems you might be facing in your business. This is the best feature of Wealthy Affiliate. Self Employment is always considered a lonely road. But Wealthy Affiliate has provided a solution to this as well.
  • If you subscribe to the Premium membership, you will not require any other course or product to run your business.
  • This is suitable for anybody of any age (18+years) whether you are old or young, employed or unemployed, part-time or full time worker, retired or not. You DONOT need any experience of online business or any online knowledge, Everything is provided for under the Premium membership.
  • Wealthy Affiliate also provides you the option of “trying” it out through the Free starter membership – so that you know whether Affiliate Marketing is for you or not. You are not obligated to pay anything if you decide to stop the free starter membership.
  • In Affiliate Marketing you do not have to create a product or service to sell – as you are just promoting other people’s products or services. No Physical stock involved. No delivery problems to deal with!
  • Affiliate Marketing provides immense flexibility which is necessary for parents. You can work at your convenience. There is no 9-5 here.
  • Affiliate Marketing is a great and a proven way to earn passive income.
  • You can work part-time or full time depending on daily schedule.

= = > > Click here to start your free starter membership to Wealthy Affiliate = => >

 

Cons

  • There is a lot of chatter on the site itself from members blogging on the site or questions being asked as well as the live chat option. You have got to remember not to waste time or minimise time wastage on banter with other members. You have got to keep the focus on the trainings and on your business. Make yourself productive.
  • Online business including Affiliate Marketing takes a while to start earning money. You have got to be consistent with your work and belief- ignore the naysayers.
  • People- meaning friends and relatives who have no clue about Affiliate Marketing will try to put you off – do not pay heed to them. Follow your instinct.
  • Lots of hard work required. There is no overnight success. This will not give you immediate cash – if that is what you are looking for! Discipline and perseverance is required – big time!
  • If you live in the countries barred from free starter membership – you will not have the chance to “try it out”. You will have to begin with the Premium membership of $49/month or $359/year.
  • Wealthy Affiliate is only in English Language. You have to know how to write and read English .
  • If you decide to promote Wealthy Affiliate then your commissions will be paid via PayPal. This is something you will have to consider if you do not have access to PayPal.

I believe that Wealthy Affiliate is one of the best,if not the best platform for Affiliate Marketing I would definitely choose Wealthy Affiliate over any other Affiliate Marketing courses as:

  • You might NOT get community support
  • You might NOT get Site support in case of technical issues
  • You might NOT get any help or support if you do not understand any aspect of the training.

Organic Kids Clothes – What Does That Mean? Where do you Buy?

When I had first heard the term organic clothes, I wasn’t sure what it really meant. My mind instantly started thinking of organic milk, fruits and vegetables! But now, when we are looking for commodities which are chemical free as well as earth friendly, I feel that organic clothes are something which all clothes manufacturers should be aim for.

According to Wikipedia, Organic clothing is is clothing made from materials raised in or grown in compliance with organic agricultural standards.

What is Organic Cotton and where do buy these clothes from?

I would like to introduce to you(if you do not already know ) to organic cotton clothes made by a brand called Frugi. They make kids clothes out of organic cotton . So what exactly is organic cotton?

  • Organic cotton is super -soft.
  • It is very soft because the fibres are left intact and not broken down by chemicals used in farming and processing of cotton .
  • Organic cotton lasts for a long time as it is very durable.

Other pros of Frugi Organic Kids Clothing are:

Reduce Reuse Recycle

Frugi’s outerwear is made from recycled plastic bottles. According to Frugi’s website, it takes 36 recycled plastic drinking water bottles to make one winter jacket ! That sounds very impressive to me, plastic has become a very big problem worldwide and this is a very good way to recycle plastic.

Employees of Frugi looked after and are treated with respect

Frugi’s suppliers are in Turkey , Portugal , India and China. They ensure that all the suppliers follow their code of conduct which is:

  • No child labour.
  • No forced labour or employment. Employees just need to give reasonable notice before leaving the employment.
  • No discrimination is allowed for hiring or firing anyone.
  • All employees are provided with safe hygienic environment .

We have all often heard of horror stories of our clothes being made in sweatshops where the employees are little children or overworked and lowly paid adults working in an unhygienic environment.

So Frugi is a like a breath of fresh air!

Charity

Frugi donates 1% percent of their Turnover to charity . So in the last 11 years they have donated £428,000.

Frugi has covered a lot to be a responsible Organisation !

So Who are the Founders of Frugi?

Frugi was founded in 2004 by parents Lucy and Kurt who struggled to find clothes to fit their son’s cloth nappied bum.

Clever ,colourful , good looking clothes

  • Reversible clothes – your child has a stain on his/her clothes and you need to go out- no problem, just reverse the clothes!
  • Designed to fit over cloth nappies or disposable nappies with plenty of wriggle room.
  • Parsnip pants – Due to generous fold over on waistband and cuffs, they don’t ride up.
  • Adjustable button up straps and waistbands to accommodate growth spurts in children.
  • Great quality , clothes last forever. Clothes feel very soft and snugly. Designs are very colourful too.
  • Outerwear is made from recycled plastic drinking water bottles – that’s the environment taken care of !

Benefits of Frugi VIP Subscription

An annual subscription of £9.50 entitles you to

  • Free unlimited UK first class delivery for 12 months .
  • Free returns (via downloadable returns form).
  • Free welcome gift.
  • Early access to two end of seasons sales.

Award winning brand

Frugi are the winners of multiple awards including Feefo Gold award and The Loved By Parents Awards which is the most trusted parenting award programmes worldwide.

I always like to include in my posts what things I don’t like about a brand or product :

  • Clothes are slightly expensive especially if you always buy cheap and cheerful clothes. The cost is justified due to the pretty designs and durability of the clothes.
  • If you do not have any stores near you , you would have to buy the Frugi VIP subscription or pay online delivery charges if you spend under £50 in the United Kingdom. If you live outside the UK, you would have to pay different or maybe higher delivery charges.

Conclusion

I am truly impressed by their colourful range of clothes for babies, kids as well as maternity wear for mothers. Perhaps something more appealing is the fact that the clothes are environment friendly, child friendly and of great quality .

Have you ever bought organic kids clothing? What is your experience of it? Do you buy clothes from Frugi? Please share your experiences via comment box below.

 

Happy shopping!

Playpens For Toddlers – My Recommendation

 

As soon as a baby starts crawling, parents have a tough time ensuring the baby’s safety on one hand and finishing household chores on the other hand. One way around it is to get playpens for toddlers. Another benefit of a playpen is it helps keeps the room tidy as all the toys of the baby are inside the playpen. It becomes even more necessary to get a playpen, to keep your toddler safe from an older sibling playing or if you have got any pets in the house.
There are a lot of playpens available but I would like to recommend to you a playpen which can be folded and put away, can be easily wiped and is affordable and of a good quality as well.


The Venture All Star JOY Portable Playpen

Product name: All Star Joy Playpen

Where to buy: Amazon.co.UK

Price: £59.85

Dimensions: 136x 136 x 75 /1.4 sq. metres

For Ages: 6-24 months

My rating: 5/5

Warranty: 90 days manufacturer’s warranty

Other Features

  • Easy to set up and fold down. Comes in a carry bag for easy transportation.
  • New patented folding mechanism, eliminates steel cross sections as seen in older versions.
  • Made with an all steel frame and reinforced stitching and a double locking system for extra safety.
  • Padded nylon water resistant floor mat which enables indoor and outdoor use of the playpen. Easy to wipe clean as well.
  • Sides are equipped with ventilating mesh walls for easy visibility.
  • Zip-opening panel for easy access(see pictures).
  • Lightweight frame which comes fully assembled.
  • This playpen meets British Safety Standards BS EN 12227:2010.

= = > > Click here to buy Venture All Star Joy Portable Playpen > > = =

Pros

  • It is very sturdy and therefore hard for the toddler to topple it over. When my children were small we had a gym nest, which my daughter was very easily able to topple it over and this was a safety concern for me ! No worries about that with this playpen!
  • Great quality.
  • Easy to put it up and fold it down on a daily basis. It can be done single handedly by Mums!
  • No cross bars and therefore prevents little ones from climbing out of the playpen.
  • This can be used indoors as well as outdoors. For example it can be used in the house or used in your back garden, in the park or on the beach! Easy to clean – just clean it with a damp cloth. You can also take it to grandparents’s home !
  • Playpen comes with a storage bag so easy to carry it around.
  • You can keep the side panel “open” so that your child doesn’t feel he/she is in a cage. They can move in and out of the playpen if they want. Some children might feel scared of sitting inside the playpen so if they have got the option of moving in and out of the playpen, they will settle in the playpen faster. The side panel also enables parents to sit in the playpen.
  • You can see the child through the breathable sides without having to look over the top of the playpen.
  • Very spacious inside the playpen – enabling the parent or sibling to play with the child . Your child can crawl as well as play with his toys.
  • Reasonably priced.
  • In case, you don’t have much room in your home you can fold and put the playpen away when your child is sleeping unlike other playpens which are not practical as they cannot be folded and put away.

Cons

  • Padding of the mat might be thin for harder floors.
  • The metallic bars are hard so you might need to baby proof them .
  • It will take a bit of space and so if you are short of space you will have to fold down the playpen every evening when your child goes to sleep.
  • The sides are high so you might struggle to put the child from the top into the playpen. But you can put them easily from the side panel.

Conclusion

One of things which I (and I am sure other mothers ) struggled with was how to go to the toilet or the bathroom by leaving a crawling toddler unsupervised. This seems to be a good enough solution for this! Apart from that it is a good quality, safe product as well as reasonably priced. The negative points of this product are not important enough to avoid buying this product. Just make sure you have got enough space to place it as per the dimensions above. Therefore I would buy this product if I were looking for a playpen.

Have you ever used a playpen for your children? What has been your experience? If you have used this particular product please share your experiences for the benefit of other readers via comment box below.

Conclusion

The Phillip Avent 2-in-1 Healthy Food maker is a must for all parents about to start weaning their little ones. It is a healthy option as it steams the vegetables rather than boiling them. It is also very convenient and practical as it steams and blends in one jar. You don’t have to use every pot in the kitchen to make baby food. One jar is all you have got to clean.

However, make sure you wash the product as soon as you have made the food. This will reduce the chances of staining as the lid is white.

I do not approve of baby food jars at all. So I would definitely recommend a product like this which would provide a child with fresh,healthy warm food without much inconvenience.

Kids Scooter Reviews – Which one is The Best?

With my two kids scooters have been very useful. Not only do they provide exercise and entertainment to my kids but also when we go to places where there is a lot of walking to do like parks, sightseeing etc. the scooter is handy. When the kids get tired of walking they just stand on the scooters and we push them along. To help you decide, I have put together kids scooter reviews as I believe scooters need to have the following:

  • Quality
  • Reasonable price
  • Silent that is no clattering or rattling noise
  • Durable

Always make sure your child is wearing a helmet when she/he is riding his scooter!

For those who not know what a lean to steer feature means : you can turn or steer the scooter simply by leaning on the side you want to turn. For example : if you want to turn the scooter to the right lean the handlebar on the right side. This feature not only makes it easy for the child to manoeuvre but if your child is tired of scootering and you are pushing her/him on the scooter, you will find it easy to manoeuvre the scooter too!

= = > Click here to buy Maxi Micro Scooter < = =

Maxi Micro Scooter is the next scooter up from Mini Micro Deluxe Scooter .

Although Maxi Micro Scooter and Mini Micro Scooter are expensive but they are built to last. My kids use the Maxi Micro scooter(as per their age) and we haven’t been disappointed.

Conclusion

If you are looking to buy a scooter for your child, make a decision based on your budget for the scooter. If you buy cheap ones (the cheapest on market is around £20.00) , they would need to be replaced within a year. Another thing you need to keep in mind is the maximum weight of the rider. If your child’s weight is close to the maximum weight, your child would outgrow the scooter soon.

Cons

  • Console is expensive and each game is very expensive.
  • There are only 2 controllers so if you are a family of four or five, you will have to buy another console or take turns playing .
  • Some children under 8 years of age might struggle to use the controls .
  • Children can get hooked to the games in case you are planning to limit or reduce screen time. You can use the parental control app to control the screen time your child gets.
  • Nintendo Switch is more known for its offline games and PS4 is known for its online games, in case you are looking to play only offline or only online. You have to pay subscription for online games now unlike before when they were free.
  • The main console is just for gaming. You cannot use it like a regular tablet for accessing You tube etc.

Conclusion

Nintendo Switch has got the best games like Mario,Breath of the Wild etc. But Nintendo is more known for its offline games. Both Nintendo Switch and the games are a very expensive buy so only buy if you are not too bothered about the cost. If price is not an issue then it can be great fun for entire family. You can use parental controls to control the time and games your child plays .
