Review and Giveaway: Emmi Wooden Cradle from Tesco

BG has never really been one to play with babies sort of girl but Little Miss is obsessed with them. She loves real ones and toy ones. She feeds them, rocks them and lays them down to sleep and it is so sweet to see.

I had been planning of getting her a wooden pram and cradle for Christmas, so when Tesco asked me if I would like to test of the Emmi Wooden Cradle I could hardly say no.

It arrived ready to assemble so I set OH to work.

Emmi Wooden Cradle 1


It was really easy for him to do. The instructions are really clear and it took less than 10 minutes to put together.

It’s really sturdy and actually much larger than I thought it would be. Little Miss loves wrapping her baby up and rocking her to sleep in her new cradle.















At £20 I think it’s a really brilliant wooden cradle and would make an awesome Christmas present for any child. There are other items available in the Emmi such a high chair, car seat, 2 in 1 pram carrier and bath set.

The Emmi Wooden Cradle is also part of a 2 for £30 offer they are currently running so you can get even better value for money. You can also get free click and collect from store.

Round and Round Board Game

Round and Round Board Game

Price: £15.50

Available from: Orchard Toys

Suitable from: Ages 3 – 6

Initial Reaction: We’d played a couple of Orchard Toys games before (one of our own and some at a friend’s) and I’d been impressed by the quality and the educational value, so I was really looking forward to trying this game. It’s based on the classic song “The Wheels on the Bus”

I wasn’t disappointed: the cardboard pieces are very robust and the attention to detail gives it a real quality feel. I have a three year-old and a one year-old who thinks he’s three. As my older son and I played the game, the little one got stuck in picking up all the pieces, slotting cards randomly into the top of busses and carrying bits round the room. Nothing got bent or squashed despite his rough treatment.

The board pieces fit together (jigsaw-style – my son was over the moon!) to make up a town. Rolling the (large sized) die, you make your way around the board, stopping at the different coloured stops. At each stop you add a card to your bus, singing the line from the song Continue reading
