Tried and Tested Children’s Books
We love the Convertible Books range from Miles Kelly. Adam has tested two books from the series – the Convertible Submarine and the Convertible Spaceship. These 3 in 1 books are a story, can be turned into a 3D model which you child can sit in and can be laid out flat and turned into a long play mat. The books are perfect for encouraging imaginative play. Click on the images below to read more about The Convertible Submarine and the Convertible Spaceship.
Thomas The Tank Engine – A Visit To London
A Visit to London for Thomas the Tank Engine is a modern twist on the classic Thomas tales. Thomas visits London to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday. It was thanks to this book that we have been able to take Adam to London three times in the past few months. It fueled a desire in Adam to see the main London landmarks.

Parker Wants To Fly
No one was more shocked than me when I discovered my brother had written a book: Parker Wants To Fly. Parker the Penguin feels that he is missing something in his life and sets off to find it. Believing that he should be able to fly, Parker attempts twice with painful consequences. He is laughed at frequently by Doug the albatross. However, when Doug gets into trouble in the ocean, Parker discovers that his ability to swim was what was missing. My brother is donating half of the proceeds to the Pregnancy Sickness Support charity. Click on the image below to read more about Parker Wants To Fly.
What’s The Time, Clockodile?
I have lost count how many times we have now read What’s the Time, Clockodile? It is thanks to this book that Adam is able to tell the time. A clock is incorporated into the book and features ‘clickety-clackerty’ clock hands. Digital time is also taught through the book.

Tried and Tested Children’s DVDS
Tractor Ted Big Machines DVD
Despite the fact we live in the countryside Adam’s typical experience of a tractor is seeing them drive along the road. He rarely sees them in a field let alone in action. Tractor Ted Big Machines DVD gave an insight to both Adam and myself about the workings of big machines. It would make a great gift for any farm loving little one or as an educational aid for a child learning about farm life. Click on the image below to read more about Tractor Ted Big Machines DVD.
Teletubbies: Tubby Snowball DVD
Teletubbies was originally created in 1997 and is one of the most successful global children’s brands. It has reached over 1 billion children to date. The Teletubbies:Tubby Snowball is the latest DVD which was released last month in time for the holidays.
It is a cold day in Teletubbyland and the snow is falling. Throughout the six new episodes the Teletubbies find big snowballs, dance with a snowman and watch children make a caterpillar our of snow. The DVD lasts for 1 hour 12 minutes and includes a bonus “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” song.
Justice League DVD
There is one DVD that is certainly on our wish list this Christmas – the Justice League: 4 Film Collection DVD Box set.
2016 will always be known as the year that Adam discovered LEGO. This box set incorporates two of Adams loves – LEGO and Super Heroes! The feature-length animated adventures are set in a Lego version of the DC universe. Watching the box set will be the perfect way to end the year.
