Educational Toys that Teach the Alphabet to Children

1 min read

I hope you like the selection of my favorite educational toys that will help to make learning the alphabet fun and seem like play. All children will love these bright toys that have the alphabet printed on them. You can choose from the more traditional like the good old building blocks or large alphabet jigsaw pieces to more modern toys like the VTech Preschool Learning Apple with its electronic sounds and buttons to press.


Like most adults, I can’t really recall learning the alphabet, but I can remember helping my sister who is 5 years younger than me to learn her letters. We used to sing the song A….B…C….E...F...G etc all the time must have driving our parents mad. If we had any of these toys when we were young it might have kept us quieter!!!

Best Toys that Teach the Time to Kids

1 min read

Here is my selection of fun but educational toys that will help your child to learn how to tell the time. With bright colors and large bold designs, your child will learn but think they are playing. Time is a strange concept and it takes a while for a child to be fully able to tell the time and also understand how time works. I love the Mickey Mouse Clock as it brings my thoughts fondly back to my own childhood when I can remember having a Mickey Mouse Clock.

Best Electric Meat Grinder for Home Use - Ratings and Reviews

1 min read

I’m very lucky as I received a super meat and hamburger grinder as a Christmas present (I did actually ask Santa for it!!!). I wanted a meat grinder so that I could make my own ground meats, so that I could 100% guarantee what is in the meat I eat. I can buy whole chunks of meat from the butcher and run this through the grinder for perfect results.

I also use the machine to add offal to the ground meat as a way of introducing this into the food my family eats (liver and heart is sooo good for you), without them knowing. Sneaky I know! I’ve also found that the ground beef produced by the grinder is a better texture than the ground meats you buy in the supermarkets.


Since owning the machine I have found that it has many uses, from making homemade sausages, cat and dog foods and hamburger meat. Also, I could imagine this machine would be great for making baby foods and purees.
