Meet Sid the panda

22 Oct

Sid The Panda

 Meet Sid…  Our latest addition to the family. Sid isn’t a cat nor is he a dog, his actually a Panda! Sid who acquired his name from Little man is the softest Panda you ever will meet, though he isn’t your everyday cuddly toy, Oh no…. Sid is so much more… his a Hug a pet!

 Hug a pets convert from cuddly toys to comfy pillows in one easy, simple step! Just undo the Velcro and like magic there you have it, a cosy soft fluffy pillow for you’re little one to snuggle on.

 Sid was actually intended for my youngest, 22 month old Harley. 

 Harley has a comfort blanket that he takes everywhere (I mean EVERYWHERE) he can’t leave the house without it. My family has taken up, calling him “Icky-Pickle” who as we all know stars in the lovely “In the night garden”. Yes, the blanket has to go and this was my latest attempt!

 Sid (as we call him) is made of the same material and looks so much more attractive than his faded blue blanket that he drags around the floor collecting dirt. Now Harley does love Sid but still the blanket remains. The trouble is, Sid isn’t only loved by Harley! He does in-fact have a fan base in the form of Little man and sister Alice Sara! Sid keeps showing up in places he shouldn’t be! Lets take last night for example, Sid was found cuddled up with a sleeping Alice-Sara (traitor! Harley wont be impressed)!  A few nights prior to that I found him here

 Harley will throw a right wobbler if his discovered Sid the Panda here, honestly of all places!

Little man thinks Harley’s Hug a pet is the most comfortable pillow in the world. 

 Little man has always been a child who sleeps without a pillow, his tactile defensive and every pillow we have tried his not been keen on. He has feather pillows and likes them under his back but not really his head. Somehow this doesn’t apply to Sid! Much to Harley’s horror! So… looks as if we gonna need another two which we can add to the never ending christmas list.

 Sid the Panda has a number of friends from Ladybirds to bees, puppies and cows! There is a Hug a pet for every one.

 So… What did I think of Sid.. is he a welcomed addition to the family and does he deserve his place in our Santa’s Little helpers list?

 He sure does! How can any mum say otherwise? Look at them sweet big black eyes 🙂

The Silly Soft

29 Sep

 I was quite excited when I was contacted by the guys at Gander Kids and asked to test a Silly soft. I had never heard of anything quite like it. However I was up for discovering what it was all about.

 The Silly Soft, made by P’kolino is a real smart toy, not only is it designed in three pieces that enables your child to puzzle together a big brightly coloured friend, it’s also multifunctional! 

 The ‘Silly soft’ can become a cosy toddler chair, table, foot-rest and more, the possibilities are endless.

 The Silly soft is aimed at children age 1-3 years. It comes in a range of  funky designs and in five different colours (orange, red, green, blue and purple).

 We were sent the orange Silly soft via speedy next day delivery.

 The Silly soft was well boxed, but easy to unpack, no horrid plastic twisty things to get through! (God I hate them things, a mothers worse nightmare)!

 It was much smaller than I first expected! However this was only because I had the image of a huge chair stuck in my head, I needed to remember this was aimed at toddlers, so, actually it was the perfect size!

 Harley was having a nap and when he woke he got mega excited when I announced, ‘mummy had a surprise downstairs’ bless him!

The outer packaging has a clear plastic window to allow you to view the toy in the box, Little H started clapping and then jumping around shouting, “Rab-bit, rab-bit” mimicking the sound of a frog. 

 Despite the colour Harley recognised that it was indeed designed to resemble a frog and he was now pretty keen to get it out of its box.

I took the three parts out the box, they were very spongy maybe made of some kind of foam that was covered in a fleece like material making them super soft, most tactile and light. Harley was able to pick each piece up with ease. He instantly got to work, puzzling where the pieces went to create his froggy friend, at just 21 months he did this with ease which left me rather impressed.

He had a huge amount of fun, throwing the pieces around the room then diving on them.

He sat on it and indulged in a little Cbeebies, jumped on it, throw it, danced on it, played on it, and finally slept on it! 

It would seem that Little H  rather likes his P’kolino Silly soft, don’t you think?

This is a toy/come seating area that’s extremely child friendly, it’s soft, comfortable, funky, bright and fun! Basically it’s all the things a toddler wants from a toy.

Oh, and don’t worry about Silly soft becoming a “Dirty Silly Soft” the covers are removable for washing ( please do check the labels care instructions).

I cannot give this lower than a 5 star *****  It put a huge smile on my toddlers face, is great for the development of gross motor skills, plus it’s different and we, at A boy with Asperger’s love different)

 The P’kolino retails at £39.99 and is available at Gander kids
