CleverstiX £9.98 @ Amazon

 CleverstiX £9.98 @ Amazon

My son Daniel is at that stage where he can use cutlery but in his own clumsy, messy way. That's okay, it's a stage they all have to go through, but is there a way to give them a helping hand? Check out CleverstiX, they are aimed at refining children's motor skills. That's right, they are chopsticks for kids. They are priced at £9.98 from Amazon and if they help my little one get more food in his mouth then I say they are worth the money.

When children are young, half the battle is getting them to concentrate on what they are doing. That applies to meal times too. With CleverstiX, your child has to focus on what they are doing in order to feed themselves.

I think kids will love the novelty value of these too, which is a massive plus if it gets them more interested in eating. These have to be held in a certain way when eating and it's not so dissimilar to how you hold a pen, so it's training little hands for that too.

Amazon also sell the Hello Kitty* and Kung Fu Panda* versions too.

Delivery is FREE if you have Amazon Prime or spend £20 or more. If you don't wish to spend as much as that and you don't have AP, then delivery is £3.30. Although, you are better off buying from Amazon Seller: Fantastic Dyspraxic  instead as they are £9.98 including delivery. You can find them listed on the pages via the links provided.

Divorce Selfies: Would You Share One?

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 4 September, 2015 at 10:00 am

Divorce Selfies: Would You Share One?

A Canadian couple have shared this picture of themselves outside the court where they were granted a divorce.

Shannon Neuman, a mum from Alberta in Canada, posted the image - which has been shared more than 34,000 times - on social media using the hashtag #divorceselfie in the hopes of inspiring other parents to divorce amicably for the sake of their children.

Along with the image Shannon wrote:

Here's Chris Neuman and I yesterday after filing for divorce! But we're smiling?! Yep, we're kooky like that. Are we smiling because the partner we chose for forever turned out not to be the forever partner we needed? Of course not.

We're smiling because we have done something extraordinary (we think anyway!) We have respectfully, thoughtfully and honourably ended our marriage in a way that will allow us to go forward as parenting partners for our children, the perfect reason that this always WAS meant to be, so they will never have to choose.

They'll never have to wonder which side of the auditorium to run to after their Christmas concert or spring play, because we'll be sitting together. They won't have to struggle with their own wedding planning because we'll be sitting on the same side of the aisle - THEIR side.

We have struggled, but we have succeeded in the plan we came up with together, to come out on the other side as their two parents who live in two houses who give them two teams to love them up two times as much. And now that you know it's possible - please consider our way if you find yourself on this road, or share our message if we can help remind them that it's possible to love your kids more than you hate/distrust/dislike your ex (which we have felt at times on the journey but for the record we do actually like each other).

Nice work #teamneuman #divorceselfie

So what's your view on this story? And if you're not in a relationship with the other parent of your children, could you see yourself doing something like this? Is the #divorceselfie likely to become 'a thing' in your view?

BHS Christmas Shop: When Is It Coming?

We know that there are lots of you already bursting with Christmas cheer, and to be honest, I am one of them. There are certain things that kick start the feeling of warmth that comes with the festive season. One of them for me is when some of the big retailers launch their own little world of Christmas. John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Boots, Debenhams all put on a great display. I can't help but get excited at those and another one of my favourites has to be the BHS Christmas Shop.

The Mini Mince Pies, the Hampers and most of all the Christmas music that blares out of the shop speakers. They often launch it with special offers too, so that's something to look out for. You can bet your bottom dollar that we will be on the case as soon as the bargains appear.

If you are a Star Wars fan then you are probably all over this one already, but for those who are not avid fans or who are looking for ideas for others this Friday is a big day. Friday the 4th September has been named as 'Force Friday' and there will be a whole new range of toys being launched to tie in with the new film 'The Force Awakens'.

Toys stores like Smyths and Toys R Us are opening some of their stores at 12.01am tomorrow (that's less than 3 hours away folks!) so that shoppers can be the very first to get their hands on the new goodies.

Big retailers like The Disney Store, Zavvi, Amazon, Smyths and Toys R Us will all be starting selling the new toys from one minute past midnight tonight and excitement is running high.

Although they can't reveal the details of what is coming, there is a special un-boxing live on You Tube which is revealing the toys one by one. It's scheduled to go on for 18 hours to show all the new toys, but luckily I haven't had to sit through all that as the highlights are being pulled out by others (phew!).

PRODUCT RECALL: Patrull Nightlight from Ikea

PRODUCT RECALL: Patrull Nightlight from Ikea

Ikea have issued a product recall on their PATRULL plug-in nightlight after a child was injured, receiving an electric shock and hand wounds from the unit. If you have one of these nightlights you are advised to stop using it immediately and return it to store for a refund, no receipt required. Here is what Ikea have said on their website, and you can click here for the original recall notice in full.

IKEA has received one report where a child played with the PATRULL nightlight. He tried to remove the light from the socket when the lid came off. The child got an electric shock and had visible wounds on his hand.

Whenever an IKEA product is involved in an incident we take immediate action. The product was removed from sale the same day as the report came in and an investigation started. More than 600 PATRULL nightlights have since been tested and they were all OK. In spite of this IKEA has decided to recall the lamp to avoid the risk of any further incidents.

PATRULL nightlight has been sold in Europe and North America since 2013.

Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required for a full refund. For more information, please contact Customer Services on 0203 645 0010.

IKEA apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.

Half Price Fisher-Price Octonauts Gup Fleet Mega Pack: now £24.99 @ Argos

Half Price Fisher-Price Octonauts Gup Fleet Mega Pack: now £24.99 @ Argos

This Fisher-Price Octonauts Gup Fleet Mega Pack is now half price at Argos, down from £49.99 to £24.99, and that's a great price for this set. If you are trying to spread the cost of Christmas then this is a good one to get now and put away for December.

In this Gup Fleet Mega Pack you get three of the gup vehicles, three characters and loads of accessories. Considering the gups individually usually cost around £15  to £20 this is very good value. They can be used in the bath tub too, so expect bath times to take a little longer!

You get Peso and his medical ship the Gup E, Captain Barnacles and the Gup D with it's super strength pincer claws, and Quazi the Pirate Cat with the Gup R. What's really sad is that I knew all of that without even glancing at the product descriptions - there are two Octonauts fans in this house and I have been subjected to lucky enough to watch the episodes many times. Over and over and over...every single one. Go on, ask me a question. My favourite is the humuhumunukunukuapuaa. ;)

Anyway, if you have an Octonauts fan in the house this is a really good value set, and the reviews are great as well. Stocks seem to be very widely available, both for the free reserve and collect from store, and for home delivery for an extra £3.95.

Fairy Garden Constructive Eating Utensils £5.99 Delivered @ Amazon Seller JB Watches

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 3 September, 2015 at 3:12 pm

Fairy Garden Constructive Eating Utensils £5.99 Delivered @ Amazon Seller JB Watches

How adorable is this children's cutlery set? The Constructive Eating Fairy Garden Utensils are a wonderful way for kids to have fun with their meal and a good way to help fussy eaters get to grips with trying new foods. This set is normally priced at around £15, but Amazon seller JB Watches are selling them for just £5.99, and that even includes free delivery!

This fairy garden set means that children can dig, fork and hoe their food and the distraction may just help them to consume a bit more food rather than keep protesting! That's the theory at least!

Even if you don't have fussy eaters to contend with then this set will still provide lots of fun at meal times with the cute garden theme and the fairies and plants featured on the cutlery.

If fairies aren't a favourite with your child then the other design is the super popular digger set, and although that is cheaper than we have seen it before, it's still £14.50. Cool though. ;)
