MAKE BELIEVE WITH KINDI KIDS

MAKE BELIEVE WITH KINDI KIDS

We are so excited to show you the new additions to the Kindi Kid range.

Isabella was so kindly asked to review these products, she is a huge Kindi Kids fan so she was super happy as you can imagine.

First up is the new Shiver ‘n’ Shake Rainbow Kate doll. She has caught sprinkle pox and needs some help to make her feel better.

She comes with lots of accessories for the doctor to use,

a blanket – she even asks for her blanket when she’s feeling cold

Thermometer – you can pop this in her mouth and Rainbow Kate will react.

Stethoscope – to listen to her heart beat (makes real noises)

Vitamin Stars

Bowl with a flannel to clean her ouch.

Rainbow Kate has her beautiful rainbow hair and big sparkly eyes, she comes dress in a night dress and cute bunny slippers.

She makes 40 different sounds and is so interactive, telling you how she feels. For example she shakes so you need to take her temperature and wrap her up in her hug blanket.

I love that this doll teaches children empathy and how to look after and care for others, which is what Kindi kids are all about. Being kind to our friends.

Also available to purchase is the Kindi Kid Doctors Bag which comes with a stethoscope, 4 Shopkins accessories, a printed fabric bandage and a sticker sheet.

You open and close the doctors bag by turning the sparkly unicorns horn.

Isabella absolutely loved the play syringe and the Shopkins scissors and bandage!

The doctors bag a is great size and Isabella loves to take it with us on outings.

Now you’re probably thinking what more could a child want?

Well this is just the ultimate A Kindi Kids Unicorn Ambulance Playset!!!!!

I think this is my favourite, it folds out into a hospital room with a bed for the patient to lie on.

Isabella absolutely loves pushing all her Kindi Kids and teddy bears around on this.

Inside it has a rainbow heart monitor to check their heart, a pressure pump that fits around the dolls arm and then really squeezes to spin around.

It also has a flip ‘n’ play x-ray to check your Kindi Kid dolls bones.

If your Kindi Kid has broken a leg bone , there is even a cute cast to pop on their leg and some stickers to pop on any ouches they may have.

The soft vinyl playmat is perfect to park the ambulance on and really sets the scene.

Lottie Doll – Walk in the Park

Lottie Doll – Walk in the Park

Lottie dolls are beautiful, realistic dolls.They are so well made with such attention to detail. We are reviewing ‘the walk in the park’ doll.

Shes perfect for talking about Autumn and Winter as she comes wrapped up warm with lots of layers.
She’s dressed in jeans, a soft fox top and has a really lovely fleece coat with cute bunny ears. She also has red polka dot wellingtons on.
Lottie is all set for a walk in the park, through the autumn leaves with her dog on its lead.

Lottie has beautiful shiny long hair which Isabella has loved brushing and putting bows in.
My favourite thing about Lottie dolls is that they wear normal real looking clothes and they are age appropriate. No make up and high heels, just like a real innocent child. Lottie can also stand up on her own which Isabella loves!
There are lots of different Lottie dolls available with diverse coloured hair, skin and eye colours.

Lottie dolls are 7 inches tall which I find a really great size for young children to hold and she fits in Isabella’s back pack to take out and about with us. Isabella can independently take the clothes on and off herself which is a big plus as she doesn’t get frustrated.

Lottie also comes in a beautiful box with a handle so looks fantastic as a gift or for children to carry the doll and accessories around in.

Isabella is very excited to collect some more of the Lottie doll range. There is a doll to suit almost every child’s personality, from a ballerina to an artist.

There is even a STEAM range which includes a fossil hunter and a stargazer. This is super to explore the world of science.

Another doll I love is the hospital doll, this would be ideal if you have a child that will be visiting or staying in hospital.

We hope you enjoyed our review and hope you have fun checking out all the other Lottie Dolls in the range

Kindi Kids Play Time Friends – Dress Up Dolls

Kindi Kids Play Time Friends – Dress Up Dolls

Welcome To The Magical World Of Kindi Kids

Kindi Kids Dolls come from Rainbow Kindi, a preschool/kindergarten where the world becomes alive with friendship and play.

These dolls are aimed at children aged 3-5 years, although I know lots of older children that love them too.

They are like a doll version of the children so prefect for acting out what happens at preschool or school to prepare children for starting or so they can simply act out what they enjoy and do at preschool.

They encourage friendship and using your imagination.

Kindi Kids are made by Moose Toys and I have today they are very well made.

Isabella loves how colourful they are. They just ooze happiness!

With their Big beautiful glitter eyes and fully rooted colourful hair, they certainly are the cutest dolls on the shelf.

So this new range is all about dress up and it really helps children develop their play even more.

We were so lucky to receive two of the new dolls to review and we hugely appreciate this.

Anything I write is completely my own opinion and our experience of the dolls.

Kindi Kids Marsha Mello Bunny Dress Up Friends 25cm Toddler Doll

First up we have Marsha Mello Bunny dress up toddler doll.

Marsha Mello is super cute and comes with an adorable bunny suit and a pretty dress to change into. She loves to hop around Rainbow Kindi.

She also has a bunny ear hairband and a pair of boots.

Isabella loves to dress up as a bunny too and join in with Marsha Mello.

I think her favourite feature of this doll is the beautiful hair band and she just loves to change her outfit over and over again.

All the Kindi Kids are the same size so you can swap around all of their outfits. Isabella will literally sit and play with these for hours.

Come on, who couldn’t resist one of these!We bought her some of the other dolls and the accessories like the shop for her birthday and this really extends her play. I love that they have some many collectibles to go with them as we always know what to get Isabella as a gift, plus I also love buying them myself.

 

 

Kindi Kids Playtime Friends Mystabella

 

This brings me to the second doll and Isabella could not believe it when I told her that the dolls name is Mystabella!!!! 

Could it have been any more perfect for her? and Mystabella likes to dress up as a unicorn princess.

Its almost like this doll was created for Isabella, she loves nothing more to be a princess and loves unicorns.

Then to top it all of Mystabella also loves to be artistic. This is exactly how I would describe Isabella.

Mystabella comes with a unicorn headband, a beautiful colourful dress and a magic reveal masterpiece.

Mystabella can hold the paintbrush herself and when you dip it in cold water, then rub it onto the easel a picture magically appears.

 

Every time I think Kindi Kids can’t get any better, they come along with something else spectacular.

Isabella and Myself can’t wait to collect more of them.

They are available at Smyths Toy store and Argos

I think they are a bargain for what you get and they are priced at RRP 24.99

Birthdays in Lockdown with Orchard Toys

Birthdays in Lockdown with Orchard Toys

Isabella has had her fourth Birthday whilst we are in lockdown.

I was a bit nervous about making sure we ordered gifts on time as I know there have been some delays with deliveries but we were super lucky to receive these Orchard Toys Games to review so Isabella was delighted.

We have been Orchard toys customers for a long time and have many of their games.

They have so many fun and educational games.

 

SMELLY WELLIES 

ages 2-6 years RRP£8.30

One of the things I did over look however was Birthday Cards! I completely forgot so Orchards Toys saved the day on this again as they have some amazing Birthday cards online that you can download and colour in, so this was just perfect. I was able to print some off for Megan and Sophie to colour in which they enjoyed. I also coloured one myself. The we cut them out and stuck them onto coloured card.

 

I have linked them if you’d like to print any.

They also have so many colouring in sheets and educational activities you can print off too.

Farmyard Heads & Tails

Ages 18 Months plus, RRP £8.30

All of the Orchard toys games are such great quality and really well thought out.

I love for how they can be adapted to suit most ages so for example with the “Match and Spell” game if your child can’t sound out the words yet then that’s ok as they can still find the matching letters which is great for letter recognition.

This is one of my favourite games as it makes learning fun so they don’t even realise they are doing it.

Match and Spell,

Ages 4 years plus, RRP £8.50

 

Isabellas favourite game is the “Giraffes in Scarves” game.

She really enjoys playing this with her Daddy.

One thing I really like about all of these games is how all the family can join in and being stuck inside during lockdown this has been perfect for entertaining the girls.

Giraffes in Scarves

Ages 4-7 years, RRP £8.30

They also so fantastic jigsaw puzzles. I love the size of this one as its nice and chunky and the pieces are really easy to handle.

Perfect gift for any dinosaur fans.

I know one little girl that I will be buying this puzzle for as a gift for their 3rd Birthday coming up this month.

Big Dinosaurs Jigsaw Puzzle

Ages 4 years plus, RRP £11.00

These games and puzzles are all reasonably priced for Birthday gifts and how amazing that you can add your very own personalised touch with one of a choice of cards to colour in.

Making it very special for all the friends and family we are missing.

You can purchase all of these from most major retailers such as, John Lewis, Symths, and Argos.

I have also added links for each game to the Orchard Toys Website where you can purchase them too.

Rainbow Unicorns

Ages 3-5 years, RRP £8.50

Thanks for Reading and we hope you have an extra special birthday if yours is during lockdown.

Helping My Children Maintain Friendships and Routine During Lockdown With Kindi Kids

Helping My Children Maintain Friendships and Routine During Lockdown With Kindi Kids

Children are really missing their normal routine during the Coronavirus lockdown.

Every Childs  routine is different but usually includes exercise, preschool, hobbies and social activities so we have tried our best to maintain these.

Social development is a really important part of learning and development for children.

They learn to take turns, have patience, and share to name a few aspects.

To continue this we have been Face timing Isabella’s cousin and friends.

Isabella and her cousin  Annabelle both love Kindi Kids so they have been using them to play together which has been so lovely to watch and so great for them to act out their emotions.

Maintaining these friendships is also really going to help them return to school.

We have also been trying to keep to the same routine plan, getting up at the same times and maintaining the usual bedtime and meal times.

We do some activities that the preschool have sent us and read stories together.

We also made a little chart like they used in preschool to do the days of the Week, Month, Season and weather.

Moose Toys so kindly gifted Isabella a Rainbow Kate Kindi Kid and the Puppy Petkin Delivery Scooter.

We are always very grateful when we are gifted something and always give an honest review.

I knew these would be an instant hit with Isabella as she already has and loves her Marsha Mello Kindi Kid doll.

We also already have the Rabbit Petkin Shopping Cart and the Kitty Petkin Supermarket which I also highly recommend.



Kindi Kids have made some amazing activity cards which have been so useful for keeping up with our exercise.
I have linked the free activity cards for you to download.

We have been doing these along with our daily walks.

Isabellas favourite activity from the cards has been throwing things into a laundry basket. Perfect for developing her hand and eye coordination. It’s also a really good gross motor activity.


Rainbow Kate and Marsha Mello have been like Isabella’s best friends during lockdown and so we have tried to incorporate them into most of our learning activities.

We love sensory play and Isabella was really missing trips to the beach so we made our very own beach. Complete with water, sand and shells for Isabella and the Kindi Kids to enjoy.

One of our favourite things about the Kindi Kids is the amazing accessories them come with.
Each doll comes with two accessories and they are so detailed. We used the Slushi sparkle drink and strawberry as part of the picnic for the beach activity.


The dolls are absolutely beautiful and have huge sparkly eyes.
I love their cool funky outfits with matching shoes and hair accessories.

The dolls are 10 inches tall so a really good size for playing with. They can also stand on their own or sit.

The clothes are removable which is another cool aspect. Isabella loves taking Rainbow Kate’s crunchy out and brushing her colourful hair.

 


The Kindi kids Puppy Petkin Delivery Scooter is just so much fun.
I love how all the items are designed so that the dolls can stand alone on them. Each item has been clearly very carefully thought out.
The scooter comes with a compartment on the back to put your accessories in and it also has a little holder at the front to pop the dolls magic cups in.

If you can’t tell already, I’m a huge fan and even I love to play with them. They really remind me of some dolls I had as a child called Little Miss Make Up so bring back some lovely memories of my sister and I playing with our dolls.

I think these dolls are such a great buy and we will certainly be adding to our collection as they also do a Peppa mint, Jessi Cake and Donatina. Don’t you just love the names?

You can purchase them from Argos .

Rainbow Kate is a RRP of £25 and the Puppy Petkin Delivery Scooter is a RRP of £15 , really good value for money.

We also enjoy watching the Kindi kids episodes on YouTube and this has been great when I needed five minutes peace.

If you have any questions about them, we would be very happy to answer.

Thanks so much for reading and thank you to Moose Toys for allowing us this opportunity to review them.
