REVIEW: Baba & Boo Reusable Cloth Nappies

With the growing importance of creating less waste and using fewer single use or disposable items, we have been trying to find ways in which we can do this as a family so we have been trying out reusable nappies in a bid to reduce our waste. We were very kindly sent a reusable nappy from Baba & Boo, the nappy came with two bamboo mix inserts, which is standard if you order a one size pocket nappy from them. Being completely new to reusable nappies, I was impressed with how soft the inside of the nappy is, it has

REVIEW: Cotton Twist Activities & Gifts

First things first – this arrived beautifully packaged (and letter-box sized). Inside the brown cardboard box are four sections, each with a different activity related to the theme of ‘Adventure’; they are suitable for 3 to 18 year olds.

The box immediately appealed to me as there’s virtually no plastic, just lots of natural materials including wood and paper. Almost everything needed to make four attractive crafts is included, except for felt tip pens
