So yesterday I unveiled the Lula Sapphire selection of gifts and today’s (remaining) gifts were purchased by me on behalf of her gran. Ooh, I think I just found a new excuse for purchases – “Your mum wanted me to get her something…..”. Sure, he’ll have forgotten by the time she’s back in the UK….
Brio Toddler Wobbler
My ma insisted that the bambino had a wooden baby walker which doesn’t explain how the bambino ended up with a white gold chain with a little diamond (the bambino is in danger of becoming BA Baracus…) This is one of my favourite baby toys – Unbelievably stylish in understated black, it takes a traditional looking toy to a whole new level in the unmistakable Brio look.
We got it from Amazon where it’s Â£24.99 (The RRP is at least Â£40)
BRIO 50 Assorted Building Blocks
The bambino loves these even though she can’t build anything more than about 3 or 4 blocks high before she knocks them over. When the Toddler Wobbler arrives tomorrow, these will be going in there!
You can also get these at our Amazon store for Â£9.99 (The RRP is around Â£20)
What did she wear?
Well there was a bit of a fiasco as her party dress, the “Tweet” Red Pinafore Dress which is also reversible by Ashley Starnes, a US designer…was too small. The bambino is clearly a big ‘un as this 12-18 months dress looked like a too tight waistcoat. Â£18.50 from the fabulous Little Baby Company.
So we tried plan B which was a handmade dress from South Africa and that wouldn’t even go over her head….
So in the end, we went to Plan C where she wore a very funktastic My Little Pony t-shirt from H&M and a velvet puffy skirt with a couple of layers of lining. Pics will follow when the boyf and I stop arguing about the whereabouts of the camera cable…
