The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

  1. Fingerlings Narwharl Review & Giveaway

    Posted on

    If you have a child of school age, you have undoubtedly heard about Fingerlings. No? Well if not, let us tell you ALL about them.

    Fingerlings were created by WowWee and they are essentially an adorable creature that is designed to be wrapped around your finger. The toy can be a monkey, unicorn, panda, dragon, or sloth that clings to your fingers and react to touch and sound by blinking and blowing kisses. 

    My daughter has had a Fingerlings monkey for some time but was delighted to have the opportunity to try out the new Narwharl that WowWee have launched. There are 4 Narwharls to collect and we were lucky enough to get Nikki the Narwharl, who according to their website, loves to “splish and splash”.

     Win a Fingerlings Narwharl

    The key features of the Narhwarl are: 

    • The horn lights up to show how they feel.
    • They have cute sounds that react to motion
    • Put them to your cheek to get an adorable “mwah” kiss (I can’t tell you how many kisses I have had from the Narwharl … it is a little addictive)

     IMG_5446

    The more you love the Narwharl, the more it interacts and loves you back, so when you lovingly pet them they’ll actually flap their tail and then blink their eyes so you know exactly how they’re feeling.

     

    The Narwharls retail for £14.99 and are available at most leading toy stores such as Smyths, Argos, The Entertainer and Argos. However we are delighted to give the Lilypad readers the chance to win one of your very own. All you need to do is enter below.

    Good luck

    The endless round of parties.

    The need for last minute gifts.

    Not to mention the thought of party bags for 20+ children. ( I made the mistake of having 50 children last year - never, ever again).

    How can parents make this endless toy buying a little easier on their pockets? Well let me introduce you to PoundToy.com.  We have collaborated with PoundToy as they are one of the UK’s favourite websites where you can purchase high quality, branded character cheap toys & games for children of all ages at prices that cannot be beaten!

  3. Win Kevin and Katie the Carrot!

    Posted on

    Christmas Adverts have become big business this year and while some people love to shed a tear at the John Lewis advert, there are those of us rooting for the underdog and in recent years that has come in the shape of an orange little carrot called Kevin.

    The marketing campaign from Aldi is brilliant and their social media team have gone to new levels this year, enjoying some entertaining banter with Coca Cola too. The frenzy around Kevin reached new heights last week when Aldi released their Kevin the carrot (and family) soft toys for 2018.

    The world official went mad.

    Websites crashed.

    Queues outside the stores.

    Women wrestling in the carrot aisles (okay I may have made that bit up).

    IMG_2286

    Despite not caring where I buy our food from, my girls were swept up in the Kevin the Carrot frenzy and wanted their very own Kevin and Katie. So I was amazed when I went into our local store to find that they still had some left. I wrestled worked my way to the front and was delighted that there was still a choice so I got a Kevin and Katie each for my girls.

    However (now this is the good bit) as it happens, one daughter only wanted Kevin and the other Katie so I have two to spare! 

    I have seen so many of these plush toys selling on eBay for silly money and whilst I am not saying a few extra pennies might be nice this Christmas, it is the season of goodwill after all, so I have decided to give the Lilypad readers a chance to win them! 

    All you need to do is enter on our Instagram page!

    Good luck. 

     

     

     

  4. Baby Annabell : Milly Feels Better

    Posted on

    Have you had to endure needles and injections for your little ones? Let's be honest, no one really likes having any kind of procedure that involves a needle, but it can be more of a problem for some. Fear of needles can be worrying for parents, particularly if your child needs regular injections or blood tests, there are ways to improve the situation and for children, this can come in the form of the fun and educational Baby Annabell doll, Milly Feels Better.

    Make Milly feel well again with the 5 Doctor accessories included. Milly's cheeks will turn red when she needs attention. Check her temperature with the thermometer and her heartbeat with the stethoscope.

    IMG_2112

     

    With a budding doctor in our house, this is the perfect gift choice for her (and her baby doll addiction). At £34.99 it is reasonably priced and more affordable than a lot of dolls in this market and has the added benefit of being in the Baby Annabell range so can share lots of the other products, such as clothing and accessories.

    IMG_2111

    When it's time for her medicine, put the medicine spoon near her mouth and Milly will start to feel better again. If she is still poorly, she can also be given an injection. Milly also features sleeping eyes when she is laid down, and will also laugh when tickled. (Note to self : turn her off when the children are asleep as you don't want night time giggles!)

    Milly Feels Better encourages great role playing and can help children over come their own fears of getting injections or going to the doctors.

    If you think Milly Feels Better could help your little one feel better then we are delighted to be able to give you a chance to win one just before Christmas. All you need to do is enter below.
