I saw this on an advert and just had to have it as it looked so much fun, it was simple enough to put together it took about ten minutes in total. We bought this for Tillie just before her 1st Birthday and it is only since she turned 16 months that it has actually interested her. She hasn't been very interested in sitting on toys but she now runs into her room leaps on it bounces for about 30 seconds then jumps off and carries on playing.

I like the idea of the product and think that some children would get a lot of use out of it, it wasn't quite what I expected, I think I would get the black and white zebra rather than the pink one if I had the opportunity to buy it again as I feel the colours are not as striking as they could be, but that isn't really too much of an issue.
I am always slightly wary of her falling off but so far she has had nothing more than a couple of near misses when she has been a bit over excited. I thought she would like it more than she does, maybe that will come in time.
Perhaps if it wasn't so plastic looking and had a few more features than it could be more appealing. The handle bars do have a toy either side but they spin round and that is all they do which I feel is slightly boring for a toddler who likes to explore and needs a bit more stimulation.

Advantages - good design
Disadvantages - takes up quite a big space and isn't in the easiest shape to store and cannot be folded away, not very entertaining

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

We decided that we would go to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Today with it being so sunny outside.
We told Tillie we were going to see some animals, I love the way she repeats everything we say now, she managed to stay awake during the car journey and the whole way round the park.
She was more interested in the cat that was sunbathing near the entrance, I didn't think she was going to move as she kept saying "hewwo cat miaowww".
She liked the Meercats and the play area is near the entrance so she was quite happily swinging away looking at the horses.
It is a nice place to go, I wouldn't say that you could spend a whole day there as there isn't a lot to do but for under 5's it is ideal. They can run around, go and pat the sheep and goats, walk through the Lemur park and get up close to the Wallabies.
The food there isn't the best and is very expensive for 2xsausage chips and beans and two soft drinks it came to £15.85!!!…

Kid's do the funniest things!

One of our elderly customers knitted Tillie a skirt, it was very kind but not something that I would put Tillie in. Plus is was very small, when I was presented with this skirt my first thought was "oh no she is going to see how tiny it is compared to my jumbo baby and there is no way am I ever going to let her wear that".

But being polite and I really was touched that she had taken time to knit this for us that I passed the skirt to Tillie who put it straight on her head and posed.....

Luckily the customer found this highly amusing along with everyone else who was having lunch in our pub that day!
