WHAT’S ON: The Corner House
West London’s creative family hub The Corner House will be hosting an array of festive events over the Christmas period, including fairy workshops, a Santa’s grotto and a fair. This coming weekend (7-8 Dec) the Christmas fair will be a brilliant opportunity to catch up with neighbours over a mince pie and a mulled wine, as well as shop some unique jewellery pieces and children’s toys and gifts. Santa will also be making an appearance to greet the children and drop off some pre-Christmas treats.
BABY KIT: the Bambino Mio change bag
Bambino Mio have launched a change bag that will change your life, or at least revolutionise your baby changing routine. The unisex baby & beyond change bag is an all-purpose bag that is particularly good for reusable nappy users. It has a ‘change me pocket’ for emergency change essentials, a ‘messy pocket’ where you can securely store wet nappies and wipes, a ‘feed me’ cool pocket for drinks and snacks, and a ‘parent pocket’ for phones, keys and everyday essentials. The fact that is can be used as a shoulder bag, backpack and grab & go bag add to its versatility, while its neutral colour means you really can use it all the time.
