25 Days of Christmas Day 4: Win a Madel Night Light Bundle

December 4, 2016

Two of my little ones currently have a fear of the dark – night times are an ordeal every day, add to it the “I don’t want to sleep in the dark” and it makes it even harder. They would sleep with their lights on if I let them, there is tears and yells from the bedrooms and often late night visits into our bed.

The Madel Night Light was launched in November 2015 to rave reviews, and allows you to create your perfect sleeping environment, setting the colour and brightness at the touch of a button. It gives you the flexibility to either enjoy comforting soft light all night or to sleep in darkness with the added reassurance of a motion sensor to activate the lamp when needed. When your child gets scared or loses their comforter in the middle of the night, the motion sensor means they can simply wave at the light, bringing it back to life for a few minutes. This enables your child to calmly self-sooth without feeling the need to wake you.

Each light includes three swappable designs from the following: Dinosaur, Rocket, Train, Owl, Butterfly, Fairy, Mermaid, & Woodlands Fawn.

madel-night-light-remote-childrens-kids-toddler-baby-nursery-nightlight-2_3b12821b-4a5b-4dbb-9e53-f81055fff5d3_grandeFeatures include:

12 Colours: Use the remote to change colours. Select from Pink, Soft Pink, Purple, Dark Blue, Soft Blue, Aqua, Green, Lime Green, Yellow, Orange, Red and White.
Sleep Mode: The light can lower down to a soft gentle glow and will stay on all night to provide safe continual comfort in any colour.
30min Auto off with Motion Sensor: Turns the light off automatically after 30mins, activating the motion sensor for continual overnight comfort when needed.
Child Calming Rainbow: Gently and slowly fades through all the colours providing a calming and peaceful environment.
Advanced Dimmer: Provides 8 levels of brightness in all colours.
Reading Light: Perfect for reading, the Madel includes pure white reading LED’s to ensure a brighter pure white.
Power Supply: The night light can be mains powered or battery powered (3 x AA).The Madel Night Light integrates state of the art technology and sophisticated aesthetics to delight children of all ages and seamlessly complements any decor.madel-2

We were recently sent the Nature Bundle for review. This set comes with three swappable designs: Owl, Butterfly and Fawn. The Madel is the ideal size night light – it isn’t too big or too small. It is lightweight and portable. Being able to operate it with batteries meant I could swap it between the kids rooms as needed without needing to search for a powerpoint. The remote was very easy to use even for Master 4. The kids loved being able to change the design plus the colours, the calming rainbow mode and the motion sensor – they wake a few times a night each and can use the motion sensor to either self settle or get up and find their way to me quietly. Miss 8 has been found a few times using the reading light after she should have been madel-1asleep – a small price to pay as she’s sleeping longer – in her own bed!

Madel Night Lights retail for $89 and include 3 Swappable Designs, a Night Light Base (5V USB and AA Battery compatible – batteries last 3-5 days) Multifunction Remote Control, 1 x 1.5m Micro USB cord, 1 x Instruction booklet and 1 x Microfibre cloth. Browse and shop the full range on the website at www.madelnightlights.com.au

In Day 4 of my 25 Days of Christmas Giveaway I am giving away a Madel Night Lights Bundle valued at $89. The winner can request the design subject to availability.

25 Days of Christmas Day 3: Win a smarTrike®

December 3, 2016

Do you remember your first set of wheels? Mine was a tricycle. No pedals, no seatbelt it was sit on it and go flying. Made from plastic there was many hours of fun and lots of  great memories from it. Thank goodness wheels for your little ones are much safer and fancier these days.

This year, smarTrike® is the ‘must-have’ Christmas gift for little ones, and their parents!

smarTrike®, the leading global manufacturer and distributor of tricycles, has two coveted new innovations – smarTrike® Explorer 5-in-1 and smarTrike® Splash 5-in-1 – which both transform in five different ways, keeping active toddlers entertained and engaged on the go.

Suitable for children aged 10 – 36 months, both smarTrikes adapt and grow with children throughout five key developmental stages until they are ready to transition into riding a bike or scooter on their own.

Encouraging learning through active play and discovery, smarTrike’s clever design nurtures the development of motor and social skills in order to increase confidence and independence.

Available in a variety of trendy colours, the Explorer and Splash models boast stylish designs and move with ease thanks to smarTrike’s patented Touch Steering technology. Also equipped with a premium reclining seat, storage bag, bottle holder, and UV protective canopy, your precious cargo will have a comfortable ride while on-the-go.

smartike-purple

As your child changes and grows, so does their smarTrike®

Stage 1 – Reclining Seat This first stage is designed for babies starting from 10 months. The high-back padded seat reclines for a nap on the go, whilst providing complete support for infants. The double-layer shock absorbing rubber wheels and safety bar ensures little ones can enjoy a peaceful, undisturbed sleep.

Stage 2: Stroller Mode From ten months, Stroller Mode allows babies to sit up and engage with their surroundings as their parents guide their ride. The foot rests and padded seat let children sit up comfortably and interact with their surroundings.

Stage 3: Guided Trike As a child grows and can sit up independently, the smarTrike transforms to allow more independence and active involvement. The safety bar can be removed and pedals can be folded out, allowing children to practice their pedalling and steering skills.

Stage 4: Training Trike At 24 months, the smarTrike 5-in-1 models turn into a training trike by pushing in the clutch and clicking a button. Parents can still take control if needed, but the child has greater control of steering and peddling as they grow and gain confidence.

Stage 5: Trike Mode In the final stage, the parent handle can be removed to form a freestanding independent trike.

The smarTrike Explorer 5-in-1 and Splash 5-in-1 are set to be the most popular gift under the Christmas tree this season, so don’t disappoint!

Retailing from $179, these smarTrike® models are available from Target, Big W, Baby Bunting, Toys R Us and Harvey Norman.

25 Days of Christmas Day 1: Win a Slinky

December 1, 2016

I often think back to the toys that were around when I was a young child – it makes me feel old, but my childhood memories come flooding back. There was lots of playing with other kids, being outside, and I remember my toys because I didn’t have mountains of them like kids do these days. The ones I had were precious and loved. One of my earliest memories is playing on a set of stairs with my sisters Slinky.

Slinky is the original walking toy that has delighted generations! It was invented by Richard James in the early 1940’s and has been played with by not only kids since but adults as well. Watch it flip itself down a set of stairs, roll it between your hands – it provides unlimited entertainment.

The best part about a Slinky is the price – the Original Metal Slinky retails for $9.95 and selected Slinky styles are available at Australian Geographic, Big W, Coles, MYER, Toys “R” Us, and all good toy retailers. It makes a perfect stocking stuffer – have a few in the cupboard for those “I forgot to get you a gift” moments or to entertain a bored child.

Every child (and adult) should own a Slinky, and I am giving one away today in day 1 of 25 Days of Mum To Five Giveaways.
