Eggcellent Easter-Themed gifts

Eggcellent Easter-Themed gifts

Easter is such a fun time of the year. I don’t know about you but I always try to find alternatives to chocolate. One reason for this is that Isabella is dairy free but we are now working on introducing some and the second is that I don’t want them all bouncing round the house like bunny’s. I do however get Megan and Sophie chocolate and a little bit for Isabella

So I have put together some ideas that I’m going to be getting the girls or things we have bought in the past and I think would make a great Easter idea

I have also added links to make your shopping even easier. Have fun!

Hape Quadrilla Escape Marble Run

Hape Quadrilla Escape Marble Run

We were so kindly sent this amazing marble run, Quadrilla from Hape to review. I have had this on my wish list for ages so to say I was over the moon was an understatement!

This is the Hape Quadrilla Castle Escape Set and it comes with 102 pieces in total, 50 marbles (so you definitely will have plenty to play with) and 50 construction pieces to build the marble run.

Its suitable from ages 4 years plus and I would say this is a resource that will last many years as even the adults and teenagers in our house enjoy playing with it. Providing invaluable family time.

First impressions are that it is made of beautiful quality birch and rubber wood, and is lovely and colourful. Hape toys are also sustainable. It comes in a really nice box which we are using to store it in, when not in use. 

Isabella needed a little help the first time she used it but quickly worked out how to create some fantastic structures. One thing I love is that you can use your imagination and to design your own structures so there is no right or wrong. It does come with a booklet showing clear instructions to make two different configurations with are amazing and following instructions is a super skill to develop.

My favourite part is the two clear towers as you can watch the marbles drop through them. Isabellas favourite is the three bells that ring as the marble passes through. These sensory elements really enhance the experience.

Learning outcomes

Problem solving

Spacial awareness 

Fine Motor skills

Mathematical Development

STEAM Learning

Creative Development

Personal Social and Emotional Development

Co-ordination and Balance Development

These are just a few that came to mind, there are many more.

So what an amazing gift idea to give, something that children will love and they learn through play whilst enjoying it!

This really is a quality item and in my opinion definitely worth spending a bit extra on a wooden marble run that will last so much longer and provide hours of fun. All Hape toys also pass through high standards of safety and quality so you know you are buying something safe for your child.

Quadrilla also has a number of different sets so you can add these to this set to expand the fun. I have not used any of the other sets but I can definitely say this particular set comes with absolutely plenty!

Some of the other sets provide different features like, a skate park and a xylophone which just extend the sensory elements even more.

I would 100% recommend this set and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.

Recommended age 4 years+

Available from Yes Bebe, Amazon and other retailers RRP £93.60

Mrs P’s Play – Winter Ice Sensory Play Box

Mrs P’s Play – Winter Ice Sensory Play Box

I am a huge advocate of Play Dough and Sensory Play so I couldn’t do a gift guide and not include it. The learning benefits are endless….

We tested out Mrs P’s Play and were not disappointed. The natural peppermint smell as soon as we opened the box was just amazing!

It comes so beautifully packaged and includes everything you need.

1x 250g White Peppermint Sensory Dough

1x 250g Blue Peppermint Sensory Dough

1x 175g Winter Ice Sensory Rice

1x 20g Magic Snow

1x 30g Winter Potion

1x Silver Sensory Sheet

1x Pack assorted themed loose parts

Play Inspiration & Information cards




As you can see Isabella just loved it!

The super soft dough was just perfect and had a beautiful sparkle to it.

She loved using the stamp cube and all the loose parts to make some wonderful creations.



The sensory rice and chick peas were such a beautiful colour and Isabella really enjoyed transferring them from the containers with the bamboo tongs and wooden scoop. She also used them in the play dough too.



We have not had the chance yet to use the winter potion and magic snow yet but they look fantastic and Isabella can’t wait to get them out this week.

So we will update you on this part.


I really think this would make such a wonderful gift and it includes so much.

It has such a homemade feel to it and if your looking for something personal, that you won’t find somewhere else then this is definitely it!

You can really see and feel how much work has gone into this box and it creates such a wonderful learning experience.

Also included are the play cards to extend your play and learning.

Absolutely recommend this 100 percent!

Please go check out Mrs’s Ps shop to see all the wonderful items she has.

This set is available to pre order for £25

Thanks so much for reading

Casdon KENWOOD Toy Mixer and Casdon Dyson cord-free Vacuum Review

Casdon KENWOOD Toy Mixer and Casdon Dyson cord-free Vacuum Review


AD – We were kindly gifted items for an honest review.

Isabella was super excited about this. She’s always asking to make cakes and help in the kitchen so I knew she would enjoy this Kenwood mixer by Casdon Toys.


It’s very sturdy and perfect for making pancakes or rice crispy cakes. I wouldn’t make cookie dough with it as it’s made for children so therefore keeping in mind little fingers getting caught but it’s ideal for anything that’s not too solid.



Isabella had the best time measuring out all the ingredients into it and then she pushed the top down and switched it on with the switch at the front. It’s just like a real mixer so makes the experience even more fun as she felt like a grown up (her words)



Our pancakes didn’t stick around for a photo as Isabella ate them up too quick but they tasted yummy!

Overall this was fantastic and Isabella has had it out with a mix of ingredients making up all sorts of magical mixtures. It’s great for making gloop to play with or to mix up the dry ingredients for her play dough.

what I love most about it is that she can use it independently and it keeps her busy whilst I make dinner.

Little ones adore role play and pretending that they are doing jobs around the house – just like the grown-ups! This Kenwood Mixer has been specially designed to be true to life, right down to the last detail so your Little Cook will really feel part of your world while developing essential life skills.

  • Realistic role play for exploring imagination and developing social skills
  • Real mixing functions for added realism and sense of achievement
  • True-to-life, replica toy for visual stimulation
  • Play encourages the development of hand-to-eye co-ordination
  • Button to turn to activate, for understanding cause and effect
  • Accessories and pop up arm to develop problem solving and motor skills
  • Different features encourage exploration and discovery


It also has a manual crank on the top so if you don’t want to use the battery function then you can use this. The manual method is easy to use and does the same job just as well.

  • 2-speed motor with the Kenwood planetary mixing action
  • Hand operation with lever on top
  • Supplied with a ‘K’ beater, whisk and spatula
  • Perfect for Little Cooks to make batter, cake mixes, icing etc

Now she has finished making a bit of a mess, it’s time to tidy up!
let me introduce you to the Dyson Cord-free Vacuum.
Wow I wish I had one of these myself. It’s so cute and absolutely amazing.
I think all children are going to enjoy this. It makes real noises and actually sucks some bits up. As my husband said “‘we wish it could do the whole house” but it is a toy.


We took the wand part off and used it as a hand held to clean the table.

You can see from the photo below that it does work. It even has the function like the real one where you can pop it open to empty. How cool is that!





Next Isabella hoovered up the whole kitchen floor for me. Yes I know I am so lucky.
She really loved feeling grown up and being independent using these items. They are such an amazing was to introduce children to helping around the house and practical life.


  • WORKING SUCTION: This toy vacuum cleaner actually sucks up real bits of debris!
  • MULTIPLE WAYS TO PLAY: Either use the short nozzle for handheld vacuuming or the long handle for ‘twist & turn’ cleaning.
  • JUST LIKE THE REAL THING: This toy vacuum has been designed like the famous Dyson Cord-Free vacuum to the very last detail.
