The winner is Silvana G!
Her daughter Sofia's colouring caught Emily's eye!

Congratulations Sofia, your copy of Dora the Explorer: First Bike
will be on it's way to you soon!


Hello there! It's been a while, so I thought it was time for a giveaway!!

We recently received the newest release from our friend Dora The Explorer: First Bike.
When Emily got home and saw it on the table, she went nutso!

Released on June 20, 2012 this latest DVD invites viewers to watch Dora demonstrate the magic of friendship as she helps her best friend Boots, to ride his first bike and find his missing boots, plus more.

Dora the Explorer: First Bike features four fantastic adventures including three new to DVD episodes.

Boots’ First Bike 
Boots is ready for his first big­‐kid bike! Help Dora take him on an adventure to the Bike Shop, and help 
other friends do new things for the first time too!

It's Vacation Time! Help Dora and Boots pack up to meet Diego and Baby Jaguar for a night at the Rainforest Campground, and help Dora's friends get set for their trips too! 

Bouncy Boots 
Boots can't wait to get his boots back from the Shoe Shop, but when he gets bouncy boots instead, Dora and you need to help him on a bouncy adventure to find his own boots! 

The Big Red Chicken's Magic Wand 
Big Red Chicken accidentally breaks his magic wand after turning Boots into a chicken! To turn Boots back,  help Dora return to Magic Land and fix the wand at the Wand Shop!

Both my girls loved this DVD, Jessica dances to the music and can kind-of say Dora! Emily loves that they have bikes like her, and never fails to inform me of this. Every time it's on!

Didi and B.

On Tuesday 1st May, the cutest little show premiered on nick jr (Foxtel and Austar.) Didi and B. are a super positive butterfly and an adorably fuzzy spelling bee. 

Didi is a butterfly who "love, love, loves" art, sparkles and glitter, and she shows preschoolers how to make everything from rain painting to petal portraits in her "DIY with Didi" segment. In the segment we viewed, Didi showed us how to make a sparkly crown.

B. is a cheeky little prankster who loves his jokes in "Just Joshing" and he has fun with words (he's a spelling bee after all!) with "Rhyme Time".
My Emily's favourite B. segments were B. Song, in which B. sings about his favourite letter (B of course!) B.'s cute little voice and groovy singing has us bopping along everytime!

The Days of the Week is another song (seven different songs playfully celebrating a new day, every day.) We got to see Monday. The girls love this one too, B. shouts out "bananas" instead of Thursday. Well, this cracked Emily up and she now randomly shouts out "BANANAS!"

I love that Didi and B. is a local production, in fact it is the creation of some incredibly talented mums. There are so many US childrens shows on television, that Emily sometimes says words with an accent! So I was delighted to hear B. say "zed" instead of "zee" in his B. Song!! 

We just loved watching the preview we were sent (courtesy of nick jr.) and Emily asks to watch it everyday!

Didi and B. airs daily at 7am and 6pm, and throughout the day. Featuring eight short segments and six songs, these best friends are sure to delight preschoolers (and parents!)

You can find them on nick jr. where you can watch videos and download activities featured on DIY with Didi and B.

BabyBestBargains, Australia’s first deal-of-the-day website is designed specifically for parents of children from birth to seven years. They sell one product at a time up to 70% off until they sell out (maximum 24 hours). Then another product rolls in so you need to keep checking but be warned this can become very addictive!

Unlike other discount websites, BabyBestBargains is targeted towards busy parents to help save time, stress and most importantly – money! They offer a diverse selection of products including maternity clothing, organic baby creams, bottle sterilisers, baby suits, baby wraps and much more. The website also offers an interactive aspect featuring competitions and giveaways through Facebook.

I ordered a product from them, and was very pleased with the service. The delivery time frame is 10-14 days (because the products are not delivered to their warehouse until after the sale.) I received mine in about a week so I was pretty happy with that!

Here's just a taste of what you can expect to see on BabyBestBargains.com.au.....

Bambusa Organic Bamboo Cot Sheet Sets
Kiddysac Swim Bags
Wiggy Winks Play Mat
