Kids Halloween Treats – Oreo Mummies

One of my favorite things to tell people is ‘did you know that Oreos are vegan!?’ I am old enough to know that vegan does not immediately equal healthy but… somehow it does make me feel better after nibbling my way through half a pack while reading a magazine. Almost like they are just fruit, or better, a vegetable. But I digress. Where was I? Hmmmm, vegan, no animals, blood – OH YES – Halloween!

By using these vegan yums we have created some hardcore Halloween delights just for you. Lookey here at our Oreo Mummies.

Top 5 Stylish Kids Coat Hooks

Winter’s approaching and that means changes in the house…it’s not just ALL about being cold but also about being prepared for the winter months ahead. Of course the seasonal wardrobe change over must occur…flip flops out and warm jumpers in, heating goes on and the slippers come out etc. But that also means that ANY DAY NOW my kids’ winter coats will appear in a heap at the bottom of the stairs or if I am lucky slung over the bannisters.

ISSA Mikro Baby Toothbrush Giveaway

Getting young kids to brush their teeth is not easy. Getting young kids to do A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G. is not easy – apart from screaming, keeping us up at night, waking us at ungodly hours and endlessly pooing, of course.

Having to brush their teeth for them is another not very easy parental task, a firm hand on the jaw is often needed to keep them from wiggling away. Lucky for us FOREO has launched the ISSA Mikro baby toothbrush for youngsters between the ages of 0 and 4. Even luckier for us they are extremely stylish and colourful.

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.
