Fun with Schleich Dinosaurs

Archie and Frankie love dinosaurs so much and spend hours on end playing with the large collection they have. In fact one of Frankie first words was dinosaur. I love any toys that get their imagination going and love to see the role play element in action.
Today they have taken the dinosaurs on a journey “a long way away on an adventure to a dinosaur castle over a rainbow” in Archie’s words.
The ankle biters were thrilled to be sent Schleich’s new dinosaur collection they were sent the Feathered Raptor , T-Rex mini and the Utahraptor mini.
The Feathered Raptors are amazing and had so much detailing which included a feather effect. Archie and Frankie loved these as they haven’t got anything like this in their collection.
They also had movable arms and one of them had a moveable mouth. Archie fed them some bread sticks when they stopped for a snack on the way to the dinosaur castle.
The two mini dinosaurs were equally well made and realistic. Frankie called them the baby dinosaurs. She had fun putting them in her truck because they were tired.
I loved the way these toys sparked their imagination and how they used other toys alongside them to build on the imaginative play. Frankie took her pony on the adventure too.
I would definitely recommend these and will be going to the Schleich website to purchase some more of the dinosaur collection.  They have so much more detail than the ones we have bought in the past and they are really well made to last.
We were sent these in return for an honest review . all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Starting them young – Casdon Hetty mop and bucket set

Archie and Frankie are two and three but I believe in giving them little jobs to do and starting them young. They love to put their clothes away , help mummy dust and tidy.

We were recently sent the Casdon Hetty bucket and mop set , this was perfect for getting them involved with helping mummy.

Frankie was so excited to open this as she already has her own Casdon Henry Hoover like mummy which she adores.

This is aimed at age 36 months to 8 years . Frankie is two next week , this was perfect for her age as she loves helping and pottering around the house.

This is a fantastic product for promoting imaginative play – Frankie knew exactly what to do with it as she sees mummy mop the floor more than once a day ha ha.

She was thrilled that she could join in and even asked for some water in her bucket. Whenever She sees me get the mop and bucket she gets hers out and joins in.


This was such a fab addition to our Henry/ Hetty range and we will definitely be looking out for some more Henry/ Hetty products as they are always a massive hit with the ankle biters.
