This year’s Spring Fair was another resounding success for Intelex Group who launched their exciting new 2017 ranges of heatable soft toys and home therapy products under the revamped Warmies® brand. As the creators of the world’s first fully microwavable soft toys and global market leaders in the industry for more than 20 years, the company has never ceased to impress its customers by constantly releasing new and innovative products.
The 2017 range features adorable new additions to the Warmies® Plush Regular Range including a cute boxer, adorable cats, an enchanting blue dragon, two lovable huskies, a baby penguin, a fearless tiger and more. All products are fully heatable in the microwave and feature the gentle and soothing fragrance of French Lavender, making them excellent bedtime companions and playtime pals for children and adults alike. RRP is £14.95.
Retailing at £7.95, brand new Warmies® Mini’s range was inspired by the increasing popularity of smaller, cute soft toys and offers an excellent opportunity for retailers to take advantage of this trend. Trade customers will be able to choose from 4 themed counter units (Christmas, Fantasy, Farm and Pets), each unit featuring 4 delightful product lines in an attractive display, perfect for placing near tills and counters to encourage impulse purchases.
Due to the popularity of the original Long Hot Water Bottles launched in 2016, Intelex Group is expanding this collection in 2017 by adding 6 new designs available in lovely shades of blue, purple and red with a choice of striped and tartan patterns. The new Long Hot Water Bottles make perfect gifts during the cold season, being a great way to keep warm and snuggle up with on frosty evenings and each long hot water bottle will retail for £19.95.
Warmies mini range won't be available til July so we reviewed one of Intelex's Group Warmies Cozy Plush Puppies instead which Katelyn became attached to straight away, her first reaction was wow and Katelyn gave her new puppy a big hug.
Warmies Plush Puppy from the Intelex Group’s Warmies range is fully heatable and after only 90 seconds in the microwave, releases a soothing scent of lavender which helped Katelyn drift of peacefully to sleep that night Warmies are the perfect little bed warming companion for both younger and older children.I must admit I am not a huge fan of the traditional hot water bottles as I find the can be to hot and worry encase they leak where as Warmies I find are a fun and safe alternative and don't get hot so your little one can snuggle up to it during the night and still cuddle them in the morning once it has gone cold then it feels like an ordinary teddy. When we first got out new Warmies puppy we just had to test him out so we popped him in the microwave for the 90 seconds stated, and ding we got him out for the first time you mirowave your Warmie he may feel a little damp but thats ok he will stop after the first use its perfectly normal for this to happen and doesn't stop you from wanting to give him a cuddle.
I was a little worried my microwave was going to smell like lavender as you could smell it before and after you microwave your Warmie, but no it was fine my microwave was scent free.
Katelyn is now a huge fan of Warmies and my daughter Davina has now asked for one so I shall be ordering her one too for Christmas to keep her warm through the cold winter nights.
Warmies cozy plush puppy is the perfect cosy little bed-time companion and a cute and cuddly play today by day! , With his fluffy ears and luxuriously soft fur, Puppy will make a wonderful little friend for any child (and adults too!)

Day at the Beach
Today I created a video with some of our family holiday pictures at the beach something my children enjoying most freedom on the beach spending times together exploring new territory.
We had lots of fun building sand castles burying each other in the sand and riding the donkeys across the beach.
I hope you like my little movie trailer below.
Time to Monkey Around !
If your child enjoys hours of wooden railway fun, then why not introduce them to the charming Monkey Pop-Up Track from Hape. This cute and friendly toy would be a great addition to any Hape track, fitting onto a variety of their current train sets. The three cheeky monkeys hide in the jungle just waiting to catch that banana!
The pop-up track will be a guaranteed hit with any child, adding fun characters to your train sets, with the excitement of a pop-up surprise. As the banana car glides cross the wooden track, the monkeys keep an eye out, and as the banana passes, POP, the monkeys jump out to claim their banana.
This exciting track can be enjoyed from 18 months upwards and encourages imaginative play. Your children can enhance their creativity while developing planning and logic skills with their new monkey friends. The track helps children to imitate real life situations, keeping the banana car on the track and watching out for those cheeky monkeys getting in the way!
The Monkey Pop-Up Track is made from high quality materials including wood, ABS, metal and magnets, so your child can connect the banana car to any other magnetic Hape trains on their track. This fun vibrant set includes 7 pieces including the wooden track, cool banana car and of course 3 monkeys to pop out as the car passes.
Your child will be mesmerised with this unique pop-up track, inspiring creativity, and whimsy during their playtime. They can interact with the track, or simply sit back and watch, waiting for the silly monkeys to try and catch their banana.
The Monkey Pop-Up Track has dimensions of (LWH) 23.4 x 12.3 x 11.4cm and is £15 from Debenhams.

Our Family Chocolate Adventure
This wasn't the first time some of my family had been to Cadbury world we had been quite a few times mostly on occasions like birthdays as its something my children chose to do.
But this was the first time we had been in a good while and wanted to see what the 4d cinema was like as we last went when the Carbonara was opened anther awesome part of Cadbury world.
We also noticed another few changes inside Cadbury world which made our experience of Cadbury world new again.
My 5 children had such a good time looking around and were very excited when they were each handed a number of delicious chocolates to eat on their way round.
Below is a few pictures I used to create a little video on parts of our experience id love you to take a look and let me know what you think as its some thing new I'm trying out.
Great Yarmouth beach
Back In 2015 we visited quite a few destinations id love to share with you over the next couple of weeks as there are so many I need to go through, Have been a very busy mummy now of 5 no longer 3 children my family has grew quite a bit over the past 3 years.
So today I will start with s little video of our family holiday at Great Yarmouth one of my very popular childhood holidays I went to as a kids with my dad and two brothers. We stayed on a beautiful caravan site called Haven in Caravan which was also upgraded to a Deluxe which was unexpected and very posh.
We had such a lovely time here, there was so much on and off site for the children to do and such a wide range of activities to do no matter how old your children may be.
My eldest children love swimming so they spent most there time in the pool splashing around even our youngest Katelyn who was only a few weeks old had a little swim with her daddy.
We spent days in the arcades, fairs and lots of time on the beach which was only minutes walk, the beach I have to say is beautiful the sand was lovely on soft on our bare feet.
great Yarmouth is one of my favourite holiday destinations and I'm glad I took my children back to where I went as a child it brought back a lot of memories and we also made more as a family, Great Yarmouth is one of the places I would consider moving my children to its my happy place and id love to make many more memories there with my partner and 5 children.
