One of the bonuses of being a Miffy Mum is getting sent amazing items to test out and try. This month Little Miss has been sent a Miffy Plays Dinnerware Set and she was over the moon the Miffy sent it just for her. It’s the first set Little Miss has had that wasn’t her sisters!
The set consists of a dinner plate, a bowl, a cup and children’s glass. It is decorated with the Miffy Plays print which is cute and nice and colourful. The first thing I noticed was how large the dinner plate is, normally they are pretty tiny which is great for a baby or toddler but as they get older they often want a bit more food or at least keep certain foods separate (we all know the struggle).
The pieces are all really thick which is very reassuring as my child likes to drop/throw things and many melamine and plastic items have cracked and even splintered but these are good and sturdy.
In the past few weeks these have been used almost every day and have been through the dishwasher many times and they still look good as new. No fading or scratching even around the edges.
Little Miss adores this set and requests it for most meals. It is a firm favourite already.
The Miffy Plays Dinnerware Set £20would make a great Christmas gift. You can also get the set in a Miffy Travels print which is super cute as well. If you are looking for gifts for older children they have some lovely enamel mugs or bone china for the adults (you know you want one).

Kiddylicious Banana, Mango & Passion fruit and Strawberry & Banana smoothie melts
Available from: Sainsburys
Suitable from: 6 months
Initial Reaction: By the name of them I thought that the packets contained a powder and had to be mixed with milk. When I read the back of the packet though I discovered that it was a snack rather than a drink. They are 100% fruit that has been whisked up and dried to create a kind of light and fluffy snack that melts on the tongue like a smoothie. By the looks of them, I had my reservations but once I had tried them I was wowed. They kind of dissolve on the tongue to deliver a deliciously fruity experience. It’s a kind of crispy snack that is totally healthy. Continue reading

Amy’s Kitchen Vegetarian and Gluten Free Range
Amy’s Kitchen was actually set up in the US by parents Rachel and Andy Berliner who, before they had their daughter Amy grew their own vegetables and spent a lot of time preparing home cooked meals. As you can understand when their daughter arrived all of this was thrown out of the window and time was of the essence when their daughter needed feeding. This is why they set up Amy’s Kitchen so that other families who were looking for delicious home cooked food, without the hassle could buy it.
Price: Ranging from £1.99 – £3.00 depending on the product.
Available from: Check online for local stockists. We sourced ours at our local Asda.
Suitable From: All ages Adults and Children
Initial Reaction: I was a bit sceptical about anything that’s gluten free as in my experience gluten free can mean taste free and a bit grainy. We tried the ‘Rice Mac and Cheese’ and the ‘Bean and Cheese Burrito’. Continue reading
