Cbeebies sweet dreams with squidge


£20.00 for ages 10m+

We had the opportunity to review the Cbeebies squidge the lovely able Cbeebies character sweet dreams toy. This was a hit as Cbeebies is on a little in our house to say the least. This is a great toy for getting the children into their bedtime routine, so they understand when bedtime starts and they also have some comfort while they are getting to sleep in their own bed.

He plays the Cbeebies bedtime hour tune by pressing his tummy, press it again and he will stop straightway, he also glows in different colours when you give him a gentle squeeze as the tune plays this will help any little clam down ready for bed. He is also very soft and huggable which will make him a great favourite bedtime toy. The tune and the lights do not last for very long which is also a great idea for the little ones that go to sleep quickly and it has an on off switch too!!!!! You can all sing along with the song as the words are printed on the back of the box so the is no excuse for nanny and grandpa not to join in!!!!

Boo has loved playing with the squidge and now gets even more excited when she sees them on the TV, she is a huge Cbeebies fan, so her “squidger” was a welcome addition to the toy box. For me, it’s a massive bonus it helps at bedtime. Now she is getting older she is becoming like her sister at bedtime, wanting the light on, with her squidge gives him a cuddle and is usually asleep by the time he turns off!

He does need 3 x AAA batteries but these are supplied with squidge when you by him

There are also other Cbeebies toys available from Chatty Bugbies to a wooded sorting puzzle

Mr Tumble’s Tablet

IMGP0272 IMGP0274


We having been putting the new MR Tumble’s tablet through its paces.

Mr Tumble is a character from the Cbeebies hit show Something Special, which teaches children about signing as well as all about the fun life of Mr Tumble.

The tablet is a colourful, touch activated learning tablet. It has six games involving colour, number and objects, all the things little people need to learn.

In the Find/quiz games Justin asks you to find objects or colours. Then in the colour game he asks for objects and numbers in the relevant colours, you get three attempts and then Justin will reveal the answer. The next game is challenge, Justin gives you a riddle, then you need to find the item or the person to go into Mr Tumble’s spotty bag. The last one is follow me in which you have to find an object for Justin as fast as you can.

All the above games are really interactive and have kept both of the girls busy for ages. They have really loved the interaction and ease of use of the tablet.

Personally, I will reveal that all the adults have had great fun playing the tablet, even my brother-in-law can quickly become engrossed. I think this said a lot about the product itself and holds plenty of entertainment  value for both old and young.

Justin Fletcher, who also stars in Something special is the voice on the tablet and sounds very realistic indeed. Pop’s knew straight away who it was, bringing some familiarity to the product and helping with their concentration.

As well as the above games, you can also hear funny sounds at anytime by pressing the corresponding buttons, as well as touching the picture buttons, where Justin will tell you about each picture and what is going on.

The on/off button is clear and easy for small hands, but if your child is like mine, they will always leave it on, however Mr Tumble’s tablet will automatically turn itself off which is a great battery saver.

The sounds, colours and lights all make a really great product, something where children can both learn and have fun at the same time.

Mr Tumbles tablet retails at around £55 and would make a great gift for 3+ years.

Tree Fu Tom Jammies!

So, Boo loves Tree Fu Tom, like literally she stops whatever she is doing whenever he is on the TV or if I start randomly singing, as you do 😛

So when the chance came for her to own some Tree Fu Tom Jammies, I knew the perfect person to give them a run for there money!

The Pyjamas themselves are fantastic quality as far as PJ’s go, they have already been through the wash many, many MANY times and are still just as vibrant as the day we got them. They are also super soft ad the Tree Fu Tom image, on the top is actually part of it, instead of having an image printed on, which makes it far more comfortable. 

tree fu tom 1 tree fu tom 2 tree fu tom 3Although I know they were more designed for boys, she loves them and loves running around the front room tormenting us when she is meant to be asleep!!!!

These Tree Fu Tom pyjamas retail at £8 and are well worth every penny, especially as they survived the Beboo test.
