Christmas Giveaway: Baby Annabell's Brother


Baby Annabell's Brother from Zapf creations is just like his sister with realistic functions and now wets his nappy too. Love and care for him like you would a real baby. He responds to touches, can cry real tears and loves his bottle. Of course a small baby like him needs plenty of sleep. If you gently rock and sway Baby Annabell's Brother back and forth on the arm or in his cradle, he slowly closes his eyes and falls asleep, snoring happily! When he wakes up, it's time for something to eat. When the little one is given his bottle, he will move his mouth and eyes as he sucks – just like a real baby. When you caress the cheek of Baby Annabell's Brother, he will happily babble to himself. In case he ever cries real tears, he will be happy again in no time thanks to the dummy, included in the set. £36.99

Cornish Whispers: Personalised Family Tree #Review

When it comes to getting Christmas gifts for the In laws I find it hard to know what to get them. When Cornish Whispers got in touch as they wanted to send me one of their Wooden family tree wall art I thought it would make the perfect gift. The wooden wall art is very pretty with your chosen names cut into the tree design. For £25 you can have up to 6 names on the tree we were sent. They also sell a larger size family tree for £40 so there is no need to worry if you are a bigger family. The wall art itself looks and feels like it will last and not delicate as you may think.

Approx. Dimensions (L x W x H): 230 x 5 x 210 mm

You can also choose the type of finish you would like from 4 choices: 
- Aged Birch 
- Antique mahogany
- Tudor Oak 
- Walnut

Once your custom made family tree has been cut out, it will then be hand finished, waxed and then threaded on to a rustic string ready to be hung on your wall.


The Cornish Whispers website was easy to use and navigate. It would have been good to be able to see a preview of what your tree may look like though which they don't give the option of.  I definitely feel that it would make a perfect gift for Christmas if you are stuck with what to buy for someone.

Choosing the right buggy for you

Choosing a buggy can be a daunting task for new to be parent's. You want to make sure that it's suitable for your new arrival but also want something that is also looks good. So with there being so many different buggys, travel systems, pushchairs on the market I wanted to share with you some things you need to think of before parting with your hard earned cash. 

Your Baby/Toddlers needs
Your child's needs will differ from age to age for a new born you will need one that will fully lie flat or alternatively you could use a carry cot that attaches. When your baby outgrows you may want them to face you so buying a unit that has a reversible seat means that you  can have them facing you or away from you so that they can see the world around them. 
You may also need to consider if you need a Tandem buggy if you have another child that is close in age and will still need to be using a buggy. 

Your budget
This one is a biggy Online4baby has a range of buggys and other must have items for a range of budgets. A complete travel system can be a great investment as you wont need to purchase a separate car seat for your child's first year.  But one of the questions you have to really ask yourself when choosing a buggy is can you actually afford the one you have your eye on. 

Your lifestyle
When choosing a buggy you also need to take your lifestyle into consideration. Here are some examples you need to think about: 

- If you travel by car a lot a travel system would be a must but you need to make sure you have a buggy that will fit in the boot of your car and also one where the car seat is compatible. 

- If like me you go on the bus regularly you will need one that is lightweight and folds away easily. 

- If you do a lot of walking you will need something that can handle rough pathways and uneven surfaces. 

-Think about the size of your home and where you will be able to store you pushchair. If space is limited you will need something that folds away small and compact. 

- Another thing to consider is if you live in a flat how you will be getting it up stairs if you don't live on the ground floor. If like me you need to carry it up the stairs than you will need a light weight one.
