Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

We’re having a party!!


On Wednesday 16th March between 1pm and 3pm I will be holding a party, along with a team of other bloggers, to co-incide with the HOUR LONG Blaze and the Monster Machine’s special which will be airing on Nick Jr that same afternoon. We have a huge array of fun and educational activities planned for the children at home, all of which are STEM related – science, technology, engineering and maths – and you can follow all our games via my Twitter account @SussexMummy. There’ll be images going up on my Instagram, and if you also follow @NickJrUK and the #NickJrBlaze you’ll spot lots of chat and exclusive competitions being run too.

There’ll be four main activities going on in my house that afternoon. Our Science activity will be a bit of a wet one and we might just be testing out Blaze’s swimming ability. Our Technology activity will be creative and very tasty thanks to the fabulous @KiddyliciousUK. Our Engineering Activity will be testing out Blaze’s driving skills and might also feature a few edible components. And finally our Maths Activity will see just how far we can make Blaze go.

Many of our activities are going to feature new toys from the Fisher Price Blaze and the Monster Machines range which you can find at your nearest Argos and Smyths Toys Superstore.

Please do follow the party using all the appropriate social media, and most importantly don’t forget to watch the brand new HOUR LONG special on Nick Jr too.

#Review: Paw Patrol DVD Release

As he gets older Little Man is much more selective about what he’ll watch on TV, something I’m hugely thankful for. There was once a time where he would sit down in front of anything and everything, but nowadays he has some clear favourites when it comes to shows on TV. One of those is definitely Nick Jr’s Paw Patrol. It’s a show he loves to watch and act out, and more often than not sing a long with. And thankfully it’s one I am happy to watch with him.

Today marks the release of a brand new Paw Patrol DVD and there was much excitement when we were sent a pre-release copy.

Join Ryder and his pup pals on their heroic adventures in eight brand new episodes, when family favourite PAW PATROL: MARSHALL AND CHASE ON THE CASE scampers onto DVD from 27th July. 

This action-packed preschool adventure series from Nickelodeon and loved by parents and children alike returns as the perfect summer holiday watch. Starring six brave pups – Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Zuma, Rubble, and Skye, this time they undertake a new batch of educational escapades led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder.

Having burst onto our screens for the first time last year, teaching that there is no adventure too big and no pup too small, the Paw Patrol delighted children and their parents, and this summer their amazing activities are back again. From fighting fire and rescuing monkeys to aiding baby owls, the Paw Patrol is always on guard in Adventure Bay. Marshall, a clumsy firefighting pup, is all action, but combined with Chase – the leading police pup – they make the perfect duo to tackle any problem – as long as it does not involve cats or feathers, because Chase is horribly allergic!

No matter how big the task, the fun-loving friends will always have smile on their faces. But have they finally met an obstacle they cannot overcome? When Ryder goes on a hike along Big View Trail he gets into trouble – will he be able to rally the troops in time?

These are eight brand new episodes featuring all our favourite characters and they are perfect viewing for some quiet time during the holidays, or rainy days like we seem to be largely forecast this week. Little Man loved watching these for the first time and when he needs a bit of a rest from all the rushing around, this is the ideal DVD to pop on for a bit of peace for us all.

Paw Patrol: Marshall & Chase On The Case is out NOW!
