This year it will be four years since I started Hip little one, I can’t believe how much it has grown and it all began with a simple ‘Where did you get that?’ from people around me. I am not the only one who loves hearing that, the lovely mums behind online store Where Did You Get That? love it too. In fact they have made it their mission to source the most gorgeous and unique finds that will everyone asking that same question. This month they are celebrating their 5th birthday and you are invited to join the birthday celebrations with a fabulous offer exclusive to Hip little one readers:

Littlelock

It is hard to believe but three months have passed since we brought our littlest family member home from hospital (it feels like yesterday!) and before we know it she’ll be starting solids. Our other three children were early starters, taking their first bites at 4 months old, so I better read up on what the latest recommendations are. With four small children I may not have the time to cook fresh meals every single day so I am going to (try to) be organised and cook in bulk so there is always a homecooked meal or snack waiting in the freezer. Now preparing the meals is one thing, storing them is a whole different story:

LittlelockWhen you are looking at storage solutions for baby food there are a lot of factors to consider: Size (You don’t want to freeze huge containers as you will end up wasting uneaten food), safety (no harmful chemicals), durability (containers need to last as you will be using them over and over), practicality (easy to use and easy to stack) and of course containers need to be microwave safe (no need to transfer the food before heating it) and dishwasher proof (to save you hand washing everything).

Littlelock ContainersDesigned by a clever Aussie mama the new Littlelock containers tick all those boxes. Made from tempered glass (stronger than regular glass) they are both durable and eco friendly. They are safe from BPA, Phthalates, PVC and lead so you won’t be feeding baby something dangerous without knowing it. Unlike most other materials Littlelock glass is stain and odour resistant so you can start with a nice clean container every time.

Littlelock MealsFill the brightly coloured containers with your own homemade meals, close the clips and the airtight, leak proof seal will keep all the goodness and yummy aromas in so the food stays fresh. You will be amazed by how tight it ‘locks’, it’s obvious this is a very high quality product! Your baby gets the benefit of wholesome meals, you save money by not purchasing single serve jars and of course you can keep using Littlelock post-baby stage, think sauces, butter, jams, fruit and much more.

Littlelock Glass Food Storage Containers are available in two sizes: 120ml ($29.95 3-pack) and 210ml ($33.95 3-pack), a great size for growing tummies. Each pack contains 3 different colours so you can colour code your meals, eg. green for vegies, pink for fruit.

Disney On Ice

©Disney. All rights reserved.

Cinderella, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Belle, over the past years I have written about quite a few of the gorgeous Disney princesses and my girls have fallen in love with every single one of them. Then there is my son, always keen to watch the adventures of Aladdin, Eugene and other famous Disney heroes. Of course it is nice to cosy up under a blanket and watch your favourite characters on the screen, but wouldn’t it be even better if you could see them in ‘real life’?

Belle finds adventure

This winter you can, as Disney’s biggest princesses & heroes have put on their ice skates and are touring the country with a spectaculair new Disney On Ice show: Disney On Ice presents Princesses & Heroes. Ninety minutes of incredible acrobatics, mind boggling stunts and beautiful twirls are sure to keep young and old on the edge of their seat. The great thing about Disney On Ice is that, unlike at a theater or concert, the show moves around over the whole ice floor so there is something different to see from every angle and at every moment.

Snow White wishes and Dwarfs

Whether you’ve got a soft spot for street smart Aladdin and his beautiful princess Jasmine, love seeing Snow White and her seven little friends, want to watch Cinderella at the ball with her handsome prince or enjoy the underwater story of Ariel, Disney On Ice presents Princesses & Heroes has something for everyone. Disney fans of all ages will have a fantastic time spotting their big favourites and admiring the stunning costumes, talented background skaters and detailed decor.

Jasmine wishes

The Disney On Ice presents Princesses & Heroes tour will kick off on June 14th and visit six of Australia’s biggest cities: Adelaide, Newcastle, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. All the excitement wraps up on July 21st so don’t miss out and treat your kids to this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Amazing, wonderful memories are guaranteed. Ticket prices start at $28.50.

Cinderella wishes

Purekids – Winter 2013

 Eco, Style  Comments Off on Purekids – Winter 2013
May 202013
 

At the start of every season I sort through the kids wardrobes to see which clothes don’t fit them anymore and which clothes just didn’t survive the every day wash and wear. Over time I have learnt my lesson and now only go for quality brands that are made to last and can be handed down when the times comes. One of those great labels is Purebaby (for the little ones) and Purekids (for the older kids) which you can find in store at Sustainababy.

untitled2I love Purebaby for multiple reasons starting with their soft organic cotton fabrics, this means no itchy skin for my kids and no hidden nasties to be breathed in. The Purebaby garments are soft from day one and will stay that way even after many washes whilst keeping their good looks too, durability is a must in this household. Another great benefit of Purebaby is that the styles are classic and timeless so they don’t go out of fashion.

3The latest Purekids Winter range offers some beautiful designs and I am particularly taken by the boys styles this year. A stylish checkered shirt like the Hunter Check Shirt ($54.95, size 3-5) is a must-have for any boys wardrobe. You can keep it casual by teaming it up with some cool jeans or dress it up with a pair of neat trousers, either way you’ll never be caught out for a gorgeous outfit. It would look awesome with the Purekids Stovepipe Jean ($69.95, size 3-5).

untitledLast year we bought our son his first Purekids tracksuit and even though he has worn it a lot it still looks fantastic. Sadly he has grown out of it so I am about to order him this season’s Boys Tracksuit Set ($64.96, size 3-5) to replace it. With many chilly months ahead of us this will definitely keep him warm and I love the grey and blue colour combination. Such a great price for a two-piece (organic) outfit!

There is plenty of other great Purekids winter clothing and sleepwear to be found in store. Hurry as the hot favourites will sell out quickly.

Here I was thinking my life would get easier once the twins were big enough to reach the tap and wash their own hands. I guess I should be happy they remember to wash their hands after going to the toilet but boy, can these two make a mess. Wet sleeves, wet mirror, wet ground and soap everywhere, now I spend my time drying the bathroom and filling up the soap dispenser. I think I may have to invest in one of these:

MyBaby Touch Free Soap Dispenser ($29.99)

MyBaby Touch Free Soap Dispenser ($29.99)

The MyBaby Touch Free Soap Dispenser looks gorgeous and is a great help when it comes to washing hands. Not only does it deliver the perfect amount of soap every time (my little monkeys love using a handful), kids don’t even have to touch the dispenser as it is fitted with a clever motion sensor. While they wash their hands a cute 20 second song will play, the ideal time for a decent clean as recommended by the Center for Disease Control. The music function can be turned on/off and the unit works on 3 AA batteries. Just fill this friendly bathroom buddy up with your favourite liquid soap and he’s ready to go.

This year it will be 7 years since I moved to Australia, I can’t believe how quick those years have flown by. In some ways I still feel very much like a foreigner, but in others I feel totally settled in. When my family comes to visit they are amazed by how Australian I am now, I (almost) sound like a true Aussie and our pantry is filled with mostly Australian (and a few Dutch) goods. When I spotted The Logo Board Game I thought it would be a fun way to see how much I really know about brands, in particular the real Australian ones.

LOGOThe aim of The Logo Board Game (RRP $35) is to get to the dedicated winning zone on the board by answering questions about brands, logos, packaging, slogans and lots of other interesting facts about all kinds of famous brands from Australia and overseas. With 400 question cards and 4 questions per card there are hours of playing fun in this game, I haven’t drawn the same card twice yet. For a foreigner like me some questions are pretty tricky but that’s half the fun, I love taking on a challenge!

Just a few of 1600 questions in The Logo Board Game

Just a few of the 1600 questions in The Logo Board Game

Logo GameHubby and I really enjoyed playing The Logo Board Game, usually he is not that keen on board games so maybe he only liked it because (being a purebred Aussie) he is much better at it than I am? You can play this award winning game with 2-6 players so it is a great game to play with family or friends. Plate up some yummy nibbles, pour some drinks and grab a bunch of friends for a fun-filled night in this winter.

Gift idea: If you have Australian family members who live overseas this would make a fantastic (and very thoughtful) gift. The Logo Board Game is available now at all leading toy retailers.
