The Baby Show 2016 

It’s nearly time for The Baby Show again.

Darcey may not be a baby any longer however we still enjoy attending to see all the latest products on sale and also to meet the great companies we have work with or communicated with over social media including, chillipeeps, Tommee Tippee and the poddle pod. 

The last show we attended was in October at Olympia London. 

We managed to buy some new products and some trusty older ones at great discounted prices. 

We visited the Annabel Karmel stand too, both Boo and Darcey had their photo taken in the oversized highchairs. We then entered the picture into a competition and guess what?? We won!!! 

So for this February’s show I have 2 pairs of tickets to give away. 

All you have to do is comment “yes please” then like and share any post that you see from myself or my blog page. (Only one entry per person)

Names will be drawn at random

2015 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,500 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
