The Pepper Pig MicroPhone



Any regular readers we know our love for Pepper pig, and any regular visitors will know how much my children and I love noise, so the pepper Pig Microphone from Inspiration Works was the perfect addition to the toy box.

Now we have had many a microphone since Pops was around 9 months. All of them pretty okay, but nothing quite like this one. As well as being a great size for Beboo to hold, it has so many different settings and songs to sing along too.



What more you you need? 

This brightly coloured musical toy is pure genius as far as Mummy and Daddy are concerned, and we have both belted out the odd tune or two. Much to the dismay of the girls. It has two great game modes and a great question mode, where Pepper asks questions and you can answer using the tick and cross buttons.

So add that to the many tunes and amplified voice and sound control, you really do have the perfect toy for any, rather noisy, musical Pepper fan.

It was simple for Boo, Pops and Mummy to figure out. Which is especially useful with two very eager children. The voices used are those of the characters from the Pepper pig TV series, which gives it more of a familiar feeling.

The Pepper Pig microphone retails for around £10, which is a really fantastic price for the quality of toy.

Everyone has enjoyed playing with this, whether belting out a tune or playing the built in games. I think the girls even enjoyed chasing Narla when she tried to have a play!

Ewan Sheep

So recently, I attended the baby show, where I met so many amazing brands, one of which was Sweet Dreamers, who have an amazing new product called Ewan Sheep.


Ewan The Sheep is a great cuddly sheep, who has a function to make womb sounds and music along with a lovely red glowing light, to soothe baby to sleep.

I can only wish I had Ewan when the girls were born, they both used nightlights and sound to drift off to sleep and I think with the womb sounds, its the perfect product for soothing a newborn baby back to sleep in no time. Now Beboo still uses music to go to sleep, to she was well up for the trying of giving Ewan sheep a run for its money.

She loved having him to cuddle, although she did prefer the music to the womb sounds, but then she is a little older. Ewan even comes with a velcro loop so it can be attached to the bars of the cot, making it always there when they need a cuddle, especially good to prevent throwing!



For me, as a Mum Ewan is a great product and should I have anymore, I think it would be one of those products that I wouldn’t be able to live without. I think having more than one setting with the lights, music and womb sounds gives it a little more diversity age wise. Which for me is an added bonus. Ewan retails for around £29.99 and would make the perfect gift for any expectant parents.
