Celebrating Pride Month with tonies®
We’re celebrating Pride month with leading audio player tonies® and their new Pride Tonie and its inspiring collection of LGBTQ+ stories, poems and music.
tonies® has collaborated with a range of talent from within the LGBTQ+ community to help young children explore and understand the LGBTQ+ community and its diversity. The content explores a range of family dynamics and teaches children the importance of always being respectful to others.
Narrated by television favourite and professional dancer Johannes Radebe, the Pride Tales Tonie takes the shape of the famous Pride Rainbow. Johannes’ colourful and fun personality provides the perfect backdrop to the content, complemented by the addition of his own context and commentary to each of the tales.

‘Feel the shield’ with FUSION Allergy Nasal Spray for children (and adults too!)
Hay fever season is in full swing (don’t we know it!), but luckily there are some great, natural and effective solutions out there that are safe for small noses.
New FUSION Allergy Nasal Spray (£9.99 Boots) is a natural and preservative-free hay fever spray that’s suitable for all ages, and provides immediate relief from symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion and a runny, itchy nose.
How to cope with hay fever
Containing sea salt, water and Ectoin, a natural anti-inflammatory, the nasal spray forms a moisturising protective “shield” for the eyes, nose, mouth and throat, blocking out pollen and other allergens such as dust or animal hair, whilst soothing and relieving those relentless symptoms. Being preservative-free limits any possible side effects too. It’s a win win!
Dr Edel Duffy is Head of Medical for FUSION Allergy Nasal Spray: “We know that warm sunny days can cause havoc for children and adults suffering with hay fever symptoms. Using a natural and preservative-free hay fever product that gets to work instantly is key to giving you and your family fast relief this summer.”
