Plum Baby: Mighty 4 Super Snacks

Published January 27, 2014 by Bizzimummy

I have done a few posts for Plum-Baby foods in the past when Izebella was a little younger. The problem I had back then was that she just would not eat savoury baby food of any sort. I had to make everything from fresh and even then it was touch and go. However she is now a little older and thankfully less of a fusspot when it comes to food. I am actually lucky that my little princess tot eats almost anything now.
When Plum asked us to try out their new range I thought I may as well give it a go.
Plum baby foods are known for the quite unusual but healthy blends. Many of their food contain an assortment of fruit and vegetables blended together to form different combinations and flavours. Usually foods you probably wouldn’t consider putting together but babies seem to love it.
Plum have just launched the Mighty 4 pouches and they will be in supermarkets very soon.

They are called Mighty 4 because they contain foods from four mighty food groups: fruit, vegetables, dairy and ancient grains. all blended together in one snack size pouch.
Plum baby foods are of course all free from sugars and additives to ensure a mouthful of pure goodness each time.
Izebella is now 15 months and therefore way past the stage of puréed, mashing and blending. She eats what we eat and only needs it chopping a little. She also likes to feed herself. These pouches are designed as snacks and not main meals and they are all yoghurt based suitable from 12 months.
So I decided give the first one a go whilst giving Izzy a light snack of toast and crackers. I received 3 pouches
*Blackberry, quinoa, carrot and Greek style yoghurt
*Sweet potato, blueberry, millet & Greek style yoghurt

*Kale, strawberry, amaranth and Greek style yoghurt.
Izebella pointed one out (one with strawberry) to try out first. I tipped the whole pouch into her bowl and gave her the spoon.

20140125-190737.jpg I should probably add that these foods are very brightly coloured due to the natural organic foods used in them. I would advise using a large bib as I know from previous experience of other Plum baby foods they can be a little messy, but that’s the whole fun part of baby feeding.

I was quite skeptical as to whether she would actually eat any with not previously being a fan of baby foods but she actually ate the whole pouch in one go and seemed to enjoy it.
I did try it myself of course and it does taste very unusual. The only way I can describe it is like a vegetable flavour yoghurt with a hint of sweetness if that makes sense?
As she enjoyed the first pouch I am certain she will also enjoy the other flavours too. I guess my baby is over her food fussiness days.
The pouches will be priced at £1.19 (RRP) and will be shortly rolled out in Sainsburys, Asda, Tesco, Boots, Morrisons, Ocado and Waitrose any time from now until April 2014.

Sky Dancer dolls

Published January 27, 2014 by Bizzimummy

Jordanna is a real girly girl who loves pink, princesses, dolls and fairies. I always think there is so much more choice when it comes to girls toys. Character Options latest little girls toys are called Sky Dancers

20140123-180730.jpg
Sky Dancers are beautiful fairy like dolls with huge wings and and come with a flower launch pod.

20140123-180915.jpg
There are four different dolls in the collection and Jordannas Sky Dancer is named Jasmine. She has a pretty face and bright colourful hair of red and yellow shades.

20140123-181036.jpg
Sky Dancers don’t need batteries or adaptors and cost £14.99 making it a relatively cheap toy.
The pretty Sky Dancer Jasmine sits on her flower pod. On the flower pod is a butterfly cord which Jordanna can easily pull.

20140123-181236.jpg
When the cord is pulled the Sky Dancer doll will spin and take off into the air. She can reach up to 3 metres and will gracefully twist and flap her wings as she goes.

20140123-181412.jpg
The Sky Dancer is an easy fun toy to use. It’s very simple with a doll and a pod. It did however take us quite a lot of practice to get the doll to actually fly. The first few attempts it just spun and fell but eventually we got it to fly a little.

20140123-183127.jpg
It’s a case of pulling the cord at the right speed, not too fast and not too slow and holding the flower pod and dancer up and away at arms length. Not too close to your face or the dancer will probably hit you when taking off.

20140123-183437.jpg
The toy is aimed at little girls aged five and over and Jordanna being six is a perfect age.

20140123-183549.jpg
We have not seen the doll fly 3 metres but apparently it can so we will have to practice more. I think this toy is definitely suited better to outside given that it needs lots of space to fly. I think it would be great for Summer months I can imagine little girls being at a garden party or barbecue and constantly letting this doll fly up and away.
