Izebellas new Cloudbabies

Published July 1, 2015 by Bizzimummy

Izebella never seems short of friends these days, both the real type and the sort you can cuddle and play with. Her most recent little pals are her New Cloudbabies.

 

Cloudbabies toys are based on the characters from the CBeebies series with the same name. I do recall watching it a few times and Izebella knows what it is (obviously). She did also receive a toy from the Cloudbabies range a few months back and this was a slightly larger version of the new recent ones.

She has both Baba Blue and Baba pink blankie. Baba Blue is the smaller one which seems to resemble a baby boy, he has a soft body and hard head.Pink Blankie is a little bigger at 8 inches and being pink is obviously a little more girly (no doubt I’ll get some backlash for saying that) and she’s in a dress. She is soft bodied and a soft head and comes with a little pink blanket attached.  

  

They are rather strange looking things in my opinion. Rather like a cross between a cabbage patch doll and some sort of Christmas elf teddy but still cute and cuddly in their own strange way. They both bear mystical symbols too such as stars, moon and rainbows. 

Apart from being good friends to cuddle, they don’t do much else, but being from a popular TV series certainly makes them appealing to young toddlers such as Izebella. 

Yes she loves them but unfortunately Baba Pinks blankie did not stay attached for long. Izebella pulled it off within seconds. I’m not too sure if that’s the idea or if it’s meant to stay on the doll but it comes off so easily. 

There isn’t a whole lot else to say about these so to some them up they are strange little loveable popular cuddlys, yet more friends to add to Izebellas ever growing collection of bedtime friends.

Baba Blue also comes as Baba pink, green and yellow and costs £6.99. Baba Blankie comes in blue too and costs £9.99. Buy directly from the CloudBabies store.  

Kids stocking fillers: Cushions

Published December 18, 2014 by Bizzimummy

All children make lists at Christmas full of toys and gifts that they really want Santa to bring them. Stocking fillers make extra special little gifts which costs much less than the main present and usually smaller in size. Stocking fillers can be anything you like including bits of chocolate, smellies, toothbrushes, stationary, small toys and bits they need.

Today I'll be posting some last minute ideas for those last minute stocking filler buys for children and to start it off I have some very special cushions to show you.

Cushions make lovely gifts for kids of all ages, including baby's and teens. They come in all shapes and sizes and colours and have multiple uses too. Use them on the bed, use them for lounging around, put them on chairs or just have them to liven up a bedroom.

The two cushions I have here come from a place called Sheridan who are an Australian luxury lifestyle brand with UK outlets. They sell many items for the home and it's well worth a look at their website.

The first cushion for Jordanna is this pretty Sheridan Addeline bird.

It's big, lovely and soft and the shape and design is great for sleeping on. Jordanna is in need of a new cushion, her current pillow pet friend is a little worse for wear after 5 years of being thrown around. As she is getting a little older now, this bird design is something that won't grow out of fashion as birds are good for any age.

The pink colour goes with the colours in her room too. Izebella has a similar pink cushion for Christmas too so she wormy feel left out.

And now one for Ryan too and I absolutely love this one. It's just fab. I don't think I have seen a cushion quite like this one.

Yes it's a big colourful crocodile. The Sheridan Allesandro cushion is very long, seems great for putting under the neck. It has many mismatched patterns running along its long body which makes it stand out from the crowd. It even has feet along with facial features. I think Ryan and Croc cushion and going to be good friends. Yes even older boys enjoy their little home comforts and cuddly friends.

Both cushions retail at about £21.99 each and a google search will bring up many stockists for each. Great little useful gifts for kids of any age this Christmas.

 

Get Well Friends

Published January 30, 2014 by Bizzimummy

I’d like to introduce a very special mouse named Nurse Nibbles.

20140130-103700.jpg
Dressed in her nurse uniform and first aid bag in hand she runs the Get Well friends hospital looking after lots of poorly or injured animals such as this clumsy little zebra named Zoe.

20140130-103845.jpg
Zoe tripped over a tortoise and hurt her leg. She went to see Nurse Nibbles who bandaged her up and gave her a special prescription in hand which says Zoe needs lots of love to get better.

20140130-104115.jpg
Now Zoe the zebra needs looking after by her little human friends. Ryan, Jordanna and Izebella. As well as all the other cute Get Well Friends

20140130-104324.jpg
So you may now be wondering exactly what or who these loveable characters are! The Get Well Friends are the creation of award winning children’s author Kes Gray. The characters are designed and illustrated by British illustrator Mary Mcquillan.
Kes and Mary together created a selection of books and toys called the Get well friends a loveable cute collection of characters who have had accidents or aren’t feeling too well and all need lots of love and care.
There are lots of friendly animal characters in the collection. Many of them come both as a soft toy and with their own book telling a story of his they got hurt. Each soft toy also comes with it’s own prescription in a little tube from Nurse Nibbles explaining how to make them better. These cute characters will appeal to children young and old and even the youngest children like Izebella will enjoy being read the books.

20140130-105137.jpg
I’d now like to introduce some of the other characters who also need some t.l.c to feel better.
First is Cassie the Cat

20140130-105340.jpg Cassie is a chubby ginger cat and poor Cassie crashed into a wall whilst chasing mice and now has a sore nose. Poor Cassie!
Pepe the Puppy has big long ears and tripped over them. He wants to be like the grown up dogs but now he has a sore paw and sore ear.

20140130-105621.jpg
A poor little Penguin named Pedro is in a very bad way after trying to dive through the ice without breaking it first. Don’t you just feel sorry for him.

20140130-105818.jpg
This is Giselle a silly giraffe who thought she could give a huge elephant a piggy back and now she can’t walk.

20140130-105925.jpg
Momo the monkey he crashed into a tree.

20140130-110027.jpg
This is Chesney the Cheetah and in his book you will discover that he is training for the Cheetah championship race but unfortunately whilst racing his spots fell off.

20140130-110420.jpg

My children are really enjoying the Get Well friends collection of exciting story books and very cute soft toys all with their own little prescription. It’s lots of fun unwrapping the individual prescriptions and seeing what Nurse Nibbles prescribed each one. The books and toys together means great story interaction for little ones and explaining why the teddies all have bandages or plasters on.

20140130-110656.jpg

20140130-110715.jpg
The teddies can also be played with together and an idea would be to perhaps build a little hospital setting using cardboard boxes which Jordanna is currently in the process of making.
We all really enjoy this collection. The books are fun, bright and colourful and not too difficult to read. There are lots of well illustrated pictures and children will beable to point out their soft toy in the books too. There are many other injured characters which appear in the books too.

20140130-111018.jpg
The toys start at £11.99 and can be bought together with the characters book at a discount price. To see which characters and books are available to purchase please visit Get Well Friends website.
We are currently giving lots of love and care to help our new friends Get Well soon.

Get Well Friends characters have the happiest of homes in the Great Ormond Street gift shop, helping to provide company and comfort for many Great Ormond Street patients.
Cassie the Cat is the unofficial mascot of the Children’s Acute Transport Service. Cassie is given free by the CATS charity to all seriously ill children transported to specialist hospitals by CATS’ specialist ambulance fleet.
