Fabulous Finds for August 2017 - Recommendations From Others

August had been a busy month thanks to the school holidays so this month’s Fabulous Finds post is slightly different; I have asked some other bloggers what brilliant finds they found recently. As bloggers are often given products and the chance to experience amazing things, it can make it hard to really impress us. Below are reviews of products (and a holiday) which look truly fabulous. Please check out the links for the full reviews.

Name Labels

Once the new school year meant stitching label after label on to school clothes, fortunately now there are easier options. Teen Tween Toddler is loving these stick on labels from My Name Tags which even come with a 10 year washing guarantee.

Google Home

I have a couple of Amazon Alexa devices in my house which I use daily to play music, control our lights and our heating. If Google Home had been available at the time I would definitely have looked into buying one instead. I'm a big fan of Google technology and I'm really interested to read about Google Home which Les Be Mums has been testing out.

The WizMop  

It's probably a strange thing to get excited by a mop, but last year I bought one very similar to this one reviewed by Twinderelmo so I understand why she loves the WizMop. Not needing to get out a bucket of water when you want to clean the floor means you can quickly zoom around removing those marks that seem to magically appear with children. The WizMop also has a window cleaning attachment which looks handy too.

The Painting-In Book

Five Little Stars has reviewed an amazing collection of books from Laurence King Publishers which are well worth checking out, but my favourite is the Painting-In Book. It's a large book full of detachable pages to provide inspiration for painting. It was enjoyed by her children (aged 2 and 3) but would appeal to older children too.

Portable Wooden Toy Cooker

We love wooden toys and play kitchens so I love the look of this portable toy cooker from Bigjigs as reviewed by What Mummy Thinks. It comes with wooden utensils and pans and handily has enough storage space for your own play food.

Hoop App for Local Activities

Household Money Saving has been testing out the free app called Hoop which aims to list local activities for children. After reading his review I downloaded the app to have a play myself. There is a good range of activities locally which I wasn't aware of. It's definitely worth reading the review and checking out the app.

Sleep Time Cream from Lovely Little Aurelia

Ettie and Me recommend this luxury cream after receiving it in a goodie bag. Despite not noticing an improvement in her daughter's sleep and the high price tag she loves this gentle and fragrant cream. It looks beautiful in a nursery and makes a great gift too.

Knomo Cross Body Bag

Scandi Mummy has reviewed a gorgeous caramel leather Elektronista bag from Knomo London. I love that inside are a number of pockets to help keep everything organised (including a phone charger). You can visit the Knomo London store at 83 Great Portland Street to see the full collection.

Interactive Minnie Mouse

Tattooed Tea Lady and her daughter have been playing with an interactive Minnie Mouse which responds to voice commands. This sounds like great fun and I love the image of Willow chasing the toy around as it moves, sings and talks.

Luxury Child Friendly Holiday in Devon

Reading the review of Pass The Wine Please's holiday in Totnes I want to go and stay at Flear Farm. Prices in school holidays aren't cheap, but it sounds like an amazing place to go with children. The cream tea on arrival, indoor and outdoor pool, ponies, chickens and honesty shop with ice cream all sound fab, but lets face it the most amazing thing about these holiday cottages is the access to the awesome playbarn which is open 24 hours a day.
