Review: Nuu Addition white and green 7 piece set

After I gave birth to L it took me a while to adjust to being a mum, not being able to do certain things or go out  purely because I wouldn't trust anyone,  to me I am the only person who knows what's right for L and what and how things should be done.  I may not be considering having a second child but I would love to see more newborns in our family and have been hinting to my sisters-in-law and our close family friends. Of course it is something out of my control and only others can decided when the time is right for them to have a baby, only imagine how happy I was to discover that not 1 but 2 of our close friends are having a baby!! 
I was predicting genders, buying little gifts in advance and waiting in anticipation until the d-day comes!! 
Few weeks ago (just in time for meeting little babies) I came across a Nuu Addition who kindly sent us 7 piece set packed with baby clothing essentials (£24.99).

"At Nuu Addition we supply classical and unique gift boxes for new born babies, full of all the helpful essentials and much more, any Mother would treasure".

What impressed me the most (apart form the gift set itself) is how carefully the product was packed and how quick it was delivered (within 2 days). The package came in a see through bag with the gift set wrapped in a brown paper and secured with twine. Upon opening the package I have noticed that the baby gift set was already packed in a cute gift bag. All these little touches are so important as it shows how Nuu Addition appreciate their products and customers! 
The set consists of:
  • Bodysuit with buttons and Elephant print
  • Baby hat with Elephant print
  • Short Sleeve Bodysuit with stars print
  • Bib with Elephant print
  • Pair of White Soft Socks (packed in a net bag)
  • White baby blanket with a green Elephant embroidered in the corner (100% cotton )
  • Cute green Elephant Toy 
  • New Baby mini card
This set is available in 2 sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months and can make such a great New Baby present, Going Home outfit or even a very thoughtful Baby Shower gift! The quality and fabric (100% cotton) are just perfect for newborn's gentle skin. I just can't wait to see little bubba in Nuu Addition clothes!
All products at Nuu Addition are very well thought through, be it a baby clothing gift set (gender specific or neutral) or a baby box with anything a new parent and baby needs!

Review: Baby Born Play & Fun bike


Few weeks ago we had a surprise delivery for L who couldn't believe her eyes when she saw Baby Born Play & Fun bike (£24.99). I think L wanted her own toy bike for quite some time now as showed an interest in helping me push her trike pretending that she is looking after her little baby.
The bike itself is is suitable from 3 years old and is a toy version of a push along bike/trike with stabilisers, pedals and handlebar with straps keeping feet and hands in place as well as a comfy seat which secures the doll (can be purchased separately) with a velco belt and last but not the least a colour changing toy on a front wheel.
Play & Fun bike comes almost assembled and with batteries, all you need to do is attach the handle bar at the back, a rubber duck horn onto the handlebar and bottle at the front of the bike.

L didn't hesitate to test the bike, she put her undressed Baby Born onto the bike whilst testing the colour changing toy at the front, security straps and cute flag with the duck on. 
I always say that kids are way more aware of things rather than adults for instance with this toy it took me ages to work out how to switch the light on, in fact it didn't work when I tested it, where is L figured this out and "fixed" it in few seconds!
We took Baby Born Play & Fun bike to play outside and have used it plenty of times at home. I like that the bike is of a great quality, cute look and accessories that can be used with it or used on its own, how L uses it for her imaginative play and gets excited every time the bike appears, very easy to use and push by a toddler, it is certainly a toy that will last us and in general a while. Having said that I would have preferred the bike to be slightly heavier than the doll and maybe a more longer or adjustable handle would work better for the kids of different heights and ages. 

The bike is a great addition to our Baby Born collection and would make a great gift for a doll lover!

L.O.L. Surprise! Easter Hunt

I remember this time last year I was bookmarking ideas for Easter Egg Hunt and couldn't wait until L would be old enough to understand and get involved. 

Before I even started planning our entertainment programme for this Easter lovely people representing L.O.L. Surprise have sent us a bundle of goodies including: L.O.L. Surprise Diva Bow, Secret Message, Jokes, Colouring In Sheet, Postcard, Sweets & a L.O.L. Surprise (£7.99 available from major toy stores).
For those who don't know L.O.L. Surprise is different take on surprise eggs, which my darling daughter loves to watch on Youtube. 
Main surprise (cute, collectible doll) wrapped in 7 layers of "wrapping paper" with different clues and mini-accessories including water bottle, stickers, shoes, outfit, accessory. Round, plastic ball with the handle is a girly alternative to usual egg-shaped "shell", both sides of which can be used as a lounge and a bath for little doll.
So on early Sunday morning I have prepared bunting in the garden, hidden few extra eggs with Easter themed characters drawn on them and with few eggs with little surprises inside to make it more fun, I have attached L.O.L Surprise colouring sheet on our rotary airer to give L a clue what the big surprise could be about.

I have managed to forget where some of the eggs were hidden but it was fun to see L getting excited when she would spot an egg, or ask what the next colour of the egg would be.

When L eventually found L.O.L Surprise ball all we could hear was "Wow" whilst she was unwrapping layer after layer. 
The collectible doll looks super cute, has a squishy face with little holes in her eyes, mouth and at the bottom for some water games and most importantly is a super-hero character- L's favourite type of role play! We are yet to try and see how little doll cries, spits the drink, wees and changes colour in the cold water as L would only want to play with it in the sand.
