The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew it was None of His Business – otherwise known as the Poo Book

Bought for Weasel for her birthday, The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew It Was None of His Business, better known in our house as “the poo book”, is now a firm favourite. As a word of warning though, this is not one you’ll want to be having a cup of tea and a […]

Painting Pumpkins!

Ok, we’re not going to win any awards for ‘most beautiful pumpkin’ at Halloween, but if mess made bears any relation to fun had, I think the 90p spent on pumpkin was worth it.

Tip Tops Tabs Pirate Party – Looks Indestructible, is Mostly Made of Tape
