Bose Build – The Speaker Cube for Kids to Build Themselves

Summer holidays are upon us. AAAAAAAARGH. We have weeks of nothingness stretching ahead of us. Well. I say nothingness, but I can guarantee you, the nothingness will for sure be punctuated by lots and lots of “I’m bored” or “What are we doing todayyyyy”. Well, always happy to help a materialistic conundrum involving your kids – here’s something to keep them busy from now, until they leave for University. 

I present ‘The Speaker Cube‘ by Bose – a new DIY speaker for kids that they can engineer themselves and then really benefit from the results.

Professor Scrubbington’s- Scrubbing Kids Clean

Kids are wonderful. But can also be gross. They roll in the mud, rarely wash their hands, their fingers explore unknown and frankly who-wants-to-know parts of their bodies, and, they sweat – boys especially – a lot. Forget SCREEN TIME  – we are talking about CLEAN TIME. These kids need to keep CLEAN. And today, we give them and you a wonderful incentive to do just that!

Buglet- Wearable Bug Deterrent

My blood is to mosquitos what chocolate cake is to me: Delicious.

We all know the agony of an unscratched mosquito bite, and for kids, it is especially hard to resist clawing at their limbs especially if it offers a release. We’ve all tried the preventative sprays and creams but there is something poisonous about the smell, and who can be bothered the play the game of ‘catch the kid running away from the spray’ – not me! Plus do they ever really work?

Introducing Buglet, a stylish slap-on bracelet for kids that deters midges, mozzies, and other biting insects which is available to purchase from Treehouse Kid & Craft.

Top 10 Kids Underwater Inspired Fashion for Finding Dory

Many, many years ago when I had a small kids fashion retail pop-up in a local leisure centre, there was a large fish tank next to it that was filled with lots of beautiful tropical fish. Amongst them, Clownfish AKA Nemo. All I heard ALL DAY LONG from little kids walking past was “Neeeeeeeemo mummayyyyyyy”. Now this was all very much pre having had kids for me – I had no clue what they were on about.

Oh how very much my life has now changed. And now, all these years later – Disney Pixar have finally created a sequel to Finding Nemo called Finding Dory which is released in the UK on the 29th July. Which if Nemo is anything to go by, will be a huge smash. Not least with our British summer pretty-much guaranteeing NO rain-free days – it’s somewhere to take them and keep them amused for a few hours eh? Here’s the trailer.

So inspired by this – I bring you my Top 10 Underwater inspired fashion as it goes without saying that we don’t ‘do’ official merchandise darlings. Let’s go..
