Toosh Coosh

Big Birthday Bash – Day 10

Anyone who has ever been to our house will agree that mealtimes are a tad crazy. There is lots of talking and laughing (and sometimes also arguing), rattling of knives and forks and shuffling of bottoms on seats, just the everyday hustle and bustle of a big family. Our kids are still quite young but thanks to Toosh Coosh they can all eat at our large dining table:

Toosh Coosh RedToosh Coosh designer Jo is determined to make family mealtimes easier by bringing little kids to the family table, you’ll be surprised how much more enjoyable dinner can be if you all sit together. If your child is ready to get out of the high chair yet a bit too small for a big chair a Toosh Coosh Booster Seat is exactly what you need. We have been using our Toosh Coosh seats for several years now, multiple times a day, and they’re still going strong.

Toosh Coosh PileToosh Coosh Big Kids Booster Seats are soft, light weight, strong, durable, easy to clean and portable, the modern look is very attractive and does not look childish at all. Use your seat at home, when visiting family or friends, when eating out at a restaurant and even at the movies, anywhere your child needs a bit of a lift. There are no straps or buckles to do up, the Toosh Coosh seat simply stays put with just the weight of your child.

The $49.95 price tag is fantastic considering it is a product you will daily for several years and for even better value there is also a Toosh Coosh Sibling Pack available containing two Toosh Coosh seats for $90 (a saving of 10%).

When people hear we have four kids under six they usually say ‘Wow, you’ve got your hands full’, followed by ‘Do you ever get time for yourself (or each other)?’. The truth is that we don’t often do, like many other parents we have no ‘date nights’ and with all my family living overseas and the costs of babysitters (if we would feel happy hiring a stranger), eating out or the movies it is simple not an option for us.

Menulog NoodlesHowever for us a lovely night at home with a nice dinner, good conversation and a relaxing movie is just as enjoyable and I always look forward to our special evenings together, sharing a late dinner in the comfort of our own home and with our babies peacefully asleep nearby. Because we’ve had a few very stressful months we decided to spoil ourselves a little extra last Friday and planned a yummy dinner in using Menulog.

Originally we had planned to spend the Easter long weekend in Melbourne, visiting family and enjoying all that is on offer in this big Australian city that I know so little about. But with kids there are always unexpected developments so we had to pass on exploring Melbourne, for now that is. I don’t know much about Melbourne so it is hard for me to know where to find the best kids friendly spots, luckily there is the Little Eats website to help me find my way.

Little Eats is a fantastic way to discover the best baby, toddler and child friendly cafes in Melbourne. Mum of two Jemma puts some of Melbourne’s hippest hot spots under the loop to test them for all the things that make them family friendly. From highchairs and changing facilities to easy pram access and kids menus and from the kid-friendliness of the staff and play areas to activities, toys and entertainment and of course prices and opening hours, Jemma knows exactly what to look for so if a place gets her tick of approval you know you are in for a real treat.

Cafe Secrets Melbourne is a deck of 52 cards featuring 52 of Jemma’s favourite child friendly cafes, one for every week of the year. All cafes have been road-tested and approved by the Little Eats family and are suitable spots for cafe culture loving little ones. Priced at just $9.95 this compact deck of cards is a must-have for modern Melbourne parents who enjoy going out with kids and a great gift suggestion for new parents too.
