Review: BABY born® Play&Fun Deluxe At The Lake set

It is always so interesting to watch how L plays with her BABY Born, how she interacts with it and pretends to care for it copying me or nursery nurses. 
At times poor little doll goes through different procedures such as undressing (most of the time), makeup application, trialing and testing play doh flavours etc. I think (touch wood) we have managed to persuade L that clothes need to stay on with a little help from lovely BABY Born PR who have sent us a new doll's outfit called "At the Lake" (£14.99). 
It is a summery outfit set, which consists of jelly sandals, swimming top, swimming pants and a snorkeling mask. As always BABY Born accessories are made to last, with vibrant colours and BABY Born logo images on all items, the set is suitable from 3 years + and available from major retailers.

Top and bottoms are made of a stretchy material and can be adjusted just like a real swimming outfit, jelly sandals look tight on dolls' feet which give reassurance that they will stay on and your child will not lose them, snorkeling mask can be adjusted in width depending if you want to use it on it's own or with the tube. 
The latter was something L has never seen before so it was something that kept her intrigued and occupied for ages. L would ask what it is, how does it work, what it is for, can she use it, can she go swimming, can she go to the sea, creating all the right association with the equipment in particular. 

Seeing how L is excited about BABY Born's outfit it prompted me to take her swimming which is something I wanted to do for ages but was never sure if we can manage on our own and most importantly if L would be keen at all. 
I didn't wash or clean the set just yet, but L has taken BABY Born in her new outfit to swim in the bath and it kept it's shape and colours once dry.

"At the Lake" is such a cute outfit and with hot weekend ahead of us would be a spot on outfit for our BABY Born.

Review: L.O.L. Surprise doll

Couple of month ago L and I came across cute collectible dolls L.O.L. Surprise  (£7.99) and ever since we have been obsessed with them. L.O.L Surprise dolls are wrapped in 7 layers of wrapping paper and under each layer you may find a clue, stickers and different part of the doll's outfit. 

Each doll comes in round, plastic ball with the handle which is a girly alternative to usual egg-shaped "shell", both sides of which can be used for chillaxing and as a bath for L.O. Surprise doll.

As L gets older I try to buy less toys or be very picky with ones I buy firstly because she seems to want even more every day and secondly because most of L's toys don't see daylight and hide in her toy boxes. When it was time to unwrap L.O.L Surprise I thought that it could help me a little and I bribed (as some of us do) L to eat her meal first. 

L was super excited as when we did Easter theme L.O.L Surprise unwrapping.

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, it can apparently change the colour in the ice cold water but we are yet to achieve this. 
The doll we have this time is a teacher, she comes with glasses, a dress which has little tie drawn on it and cute little booties. As every doll from the collection they have a nice scene to them and are fully made of rubber. 
                                        
Once you "feed" the doll with water from the bottle (comes in a set) by squishing its cheeks the doll will produce some "wee", by squishing the area above the  ears it will spit the water, the doll can also move arms and legs.

L.O.L Surprise dolls are available to purchase from major supermarkets and toys store, don't hesitate start your collection today!

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!
