All-new Echo Show 5, AMAZON

Love them or hate her, Alexa’s had another upgrade, and this time it’s in the form of the All-new Echo Show 5. Set alarms and timers, check your calendar or the news, make video calls with the 2 MP camera and of course, stream music or audiobooks, all with your voice. Alexa will play TV shows and films via Prime Video and Netflix, and stream content from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and more.

You can ease into the day with Alexa’s compatible lights as you wake up to your news update, weather forecast or your favourite radio show. If you want to check up on the house while you’re out, you can manage your smart home and look in with the built-in camera, as well as control compatible devices such as lights and cameras around the home.

You can personalise your Echo Show 5 using Amazon Photos or Facebook to turn your Home screen into a digital frame – we LOVE this idea.

Designed to protect your privacy, you can electronically disconnect the microphones and camera with the press of a button, and simply slide the built-in cover to close the camera.

Care & Protect, Dove

Summer’s here, and Dove has made looking after your skin super easy with some essential products to ensure skin is moisturised and taken care of. After months of very little sunlight, our skin can be sensitive to the heat meaning we are more prone to burning and peeling.  The below products are affordable options to make sure we are all protecting our skin from UV rays with SPF, and caring for it post sunshine with nourishing formulas!


Bibs, Bibevie

Bibevie is a brand new baby clothes company tackling many unanswered questions of parenthood. Why do baby dribble bibs always turn around? Why do they cover this beautiful outfit? Why are they always wet?

With a bright, fresh and unique look, Bibevie’s range of embroidered animal dungarees with matching bibs could be the answer to all of our bib-related woes. For starters, the bibs clip into the dungarees so they stay in place all day. The bibs are double layered, keeping even the dribbliest babies dry, and they mix and match across the range, so when one bib is wet, you can just swap it for another one.

Choose from a selection of bright, vibrant, embroidered animals from across the range and team that animal with a matching hat!


Knightley’s Adventures, Sam Faiers

With ten products in the collection, this brand new range is designed to take children on a bath time safari adventure with exotic fragrances, interesting and educational facts, and hand-drawn animals to make bath time just a bit more fun!

Knightley’s Adventures is proud to be 100% vegan, cruelty-free, suitable for sensitive skin. Dermatologist approved, paediatrician approved, free from parabens and sulphates.

With the summer holidays approaching, it’s more important than ever for parents to encourage their child’s reading at home.

The Bear Can Read is creating a new chapter for parents and children offering the tools that they need. As a subscription service for families with children aged 2-7, they offer a clear path to reading success.

Toy Of The Week

Eco Friendly Tactile Shells, EDX Education

EDX Education’s Eco-Friendly Tactile Shells are brilliant for mathematical learning such as counting, sorting, matching, comparing, sequencing and patterning, or sensory, messy and imaginative play.

The shells come in three sizes with six different textured surfaces making them ideal for sensory play. Place the shells into a feely bag and encourage children to reach inside, using their hands to touch the surfaces and describe what they feel.

Specially designed from 100% Fibre Particulate Composite (FPC), an agricultural waste product from rice stems and rice husks to make them environmentally friendly.


Knobbly Nora, Sue Banner

Knobbly Nora had knobbly knees, but she was really good at climbing trees! Poor Nora was teased by her big brother Eddie, so she would escape to the trees and play hide and seek with her forest friends. One day, something would happen that would make Eddie stop teasing Nora for good!

Is it sibling bickering or is it sibling bullying? Sibling bullying can be emotionally destructive to kids. Sue Banner’s “Knobbly Nora” is a beautifully illustrated storybook written in rhyme that weaves two common issues into the story: kids being teased for some kind of imperfection, such as knobbly knees, and sibling bullying, which can cause negative lasting effects.

The story of Knobbly Nora helps children to face their emotions. It’s a book that offers parents the opportunity for parents to start a dialogue with their children on being kind. Even if the child is not being bullied, it’s a good resource to encourage resiliency and empathy in children from a young age.
