Lanka Kade Colourful Building Blocks Review

Lanka Blocks.fw

This week, Cecilia reviews the Lanka Kade colourful building blocks for Babi Pur

We are delighted to test out the Lanka Kade Colourful Building Blocks. We received a 38 pieces wooden building blocks set, it comes in all sorts of shapes and a variety of colours in exchange for an honest review. The set is suitable from 10 months.

With a small age gap between our first two children, now 8 and 7 years old, they have been growing up together and sharing many exciting games and activities along the way. When Isla came along, now 11 months old, we wondered how we could involve all three children (and different age groups) and engage them in meaningful activities with each other, activities that are safe enough for the little one and enticing enough that the older children would not get bored: the lanka kade blocks did just that.
In our house we like to provide an environment where play is child led, therefore when asked to review the building blocks instead of ‘staging it’ (by that I mean direct the children to play ‘nicely’ with the toys whilst I take some pictures), I simply left the building blocks in a corner of the room and watched to see how the three would respond. Sure enough the three were immediately keen to play with the new toy, whilst chatting to them I took some pictures!

Moby Comfort Soft Structured Baby Carrier

The brand new soft structured carrier by Moby is here!  If you’ve been looking at ergonomic carriers, you’ve probably heard of Moby who are famous the world over for their popular stretchywraps.   While stretchywraps are perfect for carrying newborn babies up to around 6 months of age, they don’t offer as much support as your baby gets bigger. So Moby have been working hard designing their new soft structured carrier the Moby Comfort which is suitable for babies up to 44lb/20kg and can be used on the front or back, we think it looks great!

Key Features of the Moby Comfort baby and toddler carrier

    • Suitable from 8-44lbs / 3.5-20Kg
    • Integrated infant seat for young babies
    • Adjustable seat width offering knee to knee support from baby to toddler size
    • Front, hip and back carrying positions
    • Padded shoulder straps
    • Removable hood included
    • Straps can be worn like a rucksack or in an X formation across the back

If you would like to WIN on of these Moby Comfort Carriers, head over to our facebook page and get your entry in to us by Midnight on Tuesday the 14th July.

Ceclia writes

So yesterday was a happy day for Isla and I. A lovely Scottish mama organised a playdate with Ula’s children and our little ones – Ula is Tula ’s creator and owner.
The kids had great fun playing in the park together, having ice cream and just being kids- I loved spending time with Ula and talking babies, raising children and of course, talking TULAs.

Gecko Clothing Guest Post

Here at Babi Pur we’re were really excited when we heard about a like minded local company who are doing great things!  Gecko Clothing  create bright and beautiful clothing for babies and children that are ethically produced and eco friendly.  Gecko Clothing have great plans to create a super range of funky dungarees and pants for babies and children, ignoring old fashioned gender stereotypes.  To get this fab new brand idea off the ground Gecko clothing are running crowdfunding campaign, yes we know there are lots of crowdfunding campaigns around but this one really stands out and is definitely worth a look.  We asked Ema the founder of Gecko to write a bit about her campaign, see below….

Hello Babi Pur followers!

We have a crowdfunding campaign to create some very funky, colourful, ethical and eco-friendly, unisex dungarees and hopefully trousers: We are fed up with the gender stereotyping of our children. We believe what would be really progressive to gender equality would be to remove the segregating of what’s ‘girls’ and what’s ‘boys’ and have things that are for kids. Allow our children to make choices based on what make them happy, what brings them joy, to wear and to play with the things they love. Rather than be dictated to based on outdated ideals of what it is to be a girls and a boy. We want to liberate our little people! Check us out and support us if you can:

Every pledge makes a difference and we have a great range of rewards to say thank you for your support too. Ever backer will get an opportunity to help us create the dungarees as shown in our handy little infographic here: If you want to read more about why we are so passionate about unisex clothing you can check my article out here in the Huffington Post
