From dinosaurs walking the earth to boho maternity fashion to personalised books, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week. Our weekly feature will highlight the best children and lifestyle brands to buy from right now and why we think they’re brilliant.
WHAT’S ON: Dinosaur World Live
Dinosaur World Live is a brilliant interactive stage show that we were fortunate enough to visit last weekend. The dinosaurs appear on the stage and encourage the audience to interact with them either by taking photos, inviting children up onto the stage or watching the giant egg that could hatch at any time! The kids kept asking if the dinosaurs were real because they were so life-like. The lights and sound effects were amazing throughout the show especially when Titus the tyrannosaurus-rex made his appearance towards the end of the show. After the show you could meet the baby triceratops and baby sister to Titus the tyrannosaurus-rex up close in the foyer. It’s a really lovely family show and great for the little ones. Dinosaur Live is touring until the 3rd November so if you do get a chance to go along you won’t be disappointed.

Here are some dreamy holiday fashion looks we’ve been dreaming up. Last minute half-term getaway, anyone?
MATERNITY: Wandering Eve’s boho maternity style
The hottest new maternity brand Wandering Eve has recently launched and we’re in love with those boho vibes. Its founder Victoria created the British brand after feeling there was a lack of maternity-wear that embodied her personal style. The range of dresses and skirts are super-flattering and stylish and can really add a pop of colour to your wardrobe throughout the winter months.
