DAILY BLOG COMP: #WIN Bundle of OXO Tot Goodies *DAY 12*

Today we have a fabulous prize for anyone with a little one. An amazing bundle of goodies from the OXO Tot range.

We were first introduced to the brand back in 2010, the year Little E was born, and the year that -to my knowledge- OXO first launched in the UK. We ran a couple of reviews for them and since then we've become huge fans.

OXO, is an American housewares brand famed for its universal design philosophy and clever range of kitchen tools. The TOT range includes everything from weaning and feeding equipment in three vibrant shades of aqua, pink and green.

The collection also offers a sleek, space efficient highchair that grows with your child up to the age of 5, essential cleaning tools, bathroom accessories and soothing, energy efficient nightlights.

Items in the range are borne out of everyday issues OXO’s own designers encountered when raising their own tiny tots and have been designed to grow with a child through several stages of development. The sippy cups, for example, have angled handles that help reduce the strain on tot’s wrists and can be removed when tot becomes more confident.  The grown up feeding equipment for tiny tots offers very real benefits to babies and mums with products such as the training plate and training cup helping to teach tots the art of self-feeding, aiding the weaning process and increasing their sense of independence.

Made only from the highest quality material, the OXO Tot collection brings together all the tools families need to make mealtimes and bath time less stressful and more fun for everyone.

Fabulous!! So if you'd like to win a bundle of these beautiful baby products then enter using the Raffle copter entry form below.

DAILY BLOG COMP: #WIN a Pabobo Super Nomade Night Light *DAY 10*

The new Pabobo Super Nomade light is a clever little night light. There's no plug, no batteries - just a handy little USB charger and the best bit of all? It can last for up to a month from one single charge!

We've been testing it for nearly two weeks now and we've loved it. Little E has a slight phobia of the dark so bedtimes can be difficult but this has had a great effect on bedtimes... she absolutely loves it! We leave it on her bedside table but by the time we head up to bed she's always fast asleep with it in her hand. No need to worry though - the cold LED system means that the night light will never heat up - even under the covers - so it's completely safe.

If you're wondering how the charge lasts so long - the Pabobo Super Nomade has a special built in sensor so it can tell when it is light and dark, so it turns on and off by itself. And if you need a bit of extra light to check on your little one in the night then theres a little button on the back that doubles the light intensity too!

We think it's absolutely amazing and the great thing is it small enough to take with us when we're on our travels. It would have been great when we were camping in the Summer and will be definitely part of essential camping kit come Spring.

It's beautifully designed and comes in three cute designs. I can not rate this highly enough!!

DAILY BLOG COMP: #WIN 1 of 3 Denman & Batiste Packs *DAY 4*

Today I am giving away one of my must- have beauty products... one thing that since becoming a mum, I haven't been able to live without....
Batiste has become my miracle worker. It gives me volume when my hair is looking sad and it disguises my unwashed hair when there just isn't enough time in the day. It's fair to say that I am a huge fan - my favourite 'flavour' is Tropical because it smells of coconut and reminds me of being on holiday. 
The second part of the prize is a magical Denman Brush. Now I have to say, whilst I have seen Denman brushes in the shops I have never forked out that little bit extra to buy one. You see I was stupid enough to think that all brushes were the same regardless of price so I always bought mine from the Poundshop - eeek- I know! That was until I spent the last few days using my new Denman Grooming Brush. It feels so nice on my hair - not damaging like my old brush. It leaves my hair so soft and somehow looking shinier too. I've fallen in love with Denman in a matter of days and guess what... now you can too.

I am giving away 3 x Denman & Batiste Prize Packs consisting of one can of Batiste Dry Shampoo and one Denman Hair Brush to 3 lucky readers!!

Enter now using the Rafflecopter Entry Form below....

DAILY BLOG COMP: #WIN 1 of 3 Scooby-Doo! Adventures: 'The Mystery Map' DVDs *DAY 3*

A couple of weeks ago we were sent a copy of SCOOBY-DOO! ADVENTURES THE MYSTERY MAP - the all-new Scooby Doo puppet movie. Mister A and Little E just love Scooby Doo - in fact the YouView box is 80% full of Scooby Doo recordings they've set up themselves!

We sat down to watch the movie as a family and we weren't disappointed. It's classic Scooby Doo but with a difference - all of the characters are muppet-like puppets. I really liked the puppets, in my opinion Scooby Doo can be quite scary for younger children with all the ghosts and evil looking 'baddies', but this new format actually broadens the appeal to pre-schoolers.

To tell you a little about the storyline - Scooby and Shaggy order in pizza and in the delivery box they find a treasure map - ZOINKS!! The team decide to embark on a mad dash to find pirate Gnarlybeard's hidden treasure and as you can imagine they are confronted by many spooky obstacles along the way. There were a couple of laugh-out-loud moments that had the children giggling away and a couple of scary moments too when the gang are being chased by the Phantom Parrot. Eeeek!

We thought the movie was fabulous and I loved the fact that there are 2 bonus episodes of old school Scooby too.

The new format DVD, Scooby-Doo! Adventures: 'The Mystery Map', is available to but now but I have 3 copies to give away to my lovely readers - just enter using the Rafflecopter entry form below....
