Cocoa and Vanilla

With my birthday just two sleeps away, and our 10th wedding anniversary coming up in September, hubby has been scratching his head trying to come up with a special gift to celebrate. Of course jewellery is the most popular gift for a milestone like this, but it turns out I am pretty picky when it comes to shiny things. Sneakily I am hoping he checks out my computer, where I bookmarked these divine creations by Cocoa and Vanilla:

With three kids very close in age our house is filled with toys and many of them are doubles. Aside from the fact that it is expensive to buy two or three of everything there is also the issue of space, not that little cars or dolls take up much room but walkers, ride-on’s. trikes and bikes certainly do. In fact our playroom looks a bit like a parking garage with a whole row of rides in all shapes and sizes along one wall. If you are just about to start investing in wheels for your little one make sure you check out this awesome 3-in-1 Transformable Toy by Mishi Design, available at Shop For Tots.

From just 9 months old your baby can start using this toy as a Walker, complete with toy basket for all his/her favourite belongings. The sturdy wooden construction will offer all the support your child needs when learning to take those first wobbly steps and before you know it your inquisitive toddler will be exploring every corner of the house (and collecting treasures on the way).

The second stage of the 3-in-1 Transformable Toy is the Ride-On mode, turning the sturdy walker into a funky bike. For kids this is the start of learning how to steer and how to use their little legs to get the bike moving, it will be a bit tricky at first but once they get it there is no stopping them. Ride-on’s are fun for all ages, my three (3,5 year old twins and an 18-month old) are always racing theirs through the hall way.

The last fase, but definitely not the least exciting, is the transformation from ride-on to trolley. A trip to an imaginary shop to stock up on groceries and pay with plastic money or hanging up the washing, there are hours of fun to be had. The pretend play stage will last for quite some time so the trolley will be thoroughly enjoyed by children up to 6 years old. Conclusion: Invest once and do it well and you’ll get years out of this fantastic 3-in-1 Transformable Toy.

I know you may find it hard to believe but until this week we had never taken the kids out for dinner. Some people manage to take their little ones out to restaurants from a very young age which I think it fantastic, we just couldn’t do it. When the twins were babies we didn’t find the idea of trying to feed a baby each (and ourselves) very relaxing so we never did it. Baby 3 was born before the twins turned two and the thought of three small kids in high chairs in a restaurant would scare even the most organised and calm parents so we kept putting it off. But as we were invited to a birthday dinner this week we decided to bite the bullet and go…

On Tuesday it was time for our big outing and we were well prepared, the restaurant had reserved one high chair for baby and we brought along our Toosh Cooshes for the older two. At 3 years old the twins may be too big for high chairs but they are still a little bit too small for regular dining chairs, making it hard for them to eat properly and not make a mess. And this is exactly where the Toosh Cooshes come in.

The Toosh Coosh is a kids support seat designed right here in Australia by clever mum Jo. After searching high and low for a simple, portable, stylish support seat for kids she decided to create her own solution to the problem. If you imagine trying to eat your dinner at a table that is too high for you you’ll realise that eating mess free is not easy. Bringing the table down is not an option but making your seat higher is!

Unlike other booster seats the Toosh Coosh features a stylish, timeless design that is not too babyish for older children, its neutral colour options (charcoal/red) will fit in beautifully with your interior. Conveniently packaged in its own carry bag you can easily take your Toosh Coosh to friends, family and restaurants so kids can sit up at the table and you can have a relaxing meal together.

Obviously this fantastic seat is not just useful around meal times, the twins use their Toosh Cooshes all the time to do drawing, playdoh or other crafts at the big kitchen table. The Toosh Coosh sits really well on our dining chairs (it sits really well on every chair we have tried it on!) and they do not slide even when the twins hop on and off. Sticky fingerprints are easy to wipe off and its compact size makes it easy to store, because isn’t storage space something we all never have enough of?

The Toosh Coosh kids support seat costs $59.95 or $109.90 for a sibling pack, at the moment you can enjoy free delivery Australia wide.
