January Toddler Favourites

Welcome once again to Jack's monthly favourites! We have quite a lot of toddler favourites this month. With Christmas having been and gone, Jack has had a lot of new things to play with and try.

 If you want to take a look at my January favourites, head here.


The book that Jack has loved reading... Postman Bear by Julia Donaldson.

Jack loves books. We read every night at bedtime but have recently found that Jack enjoys sitting on his own and looking at his books. He has quite an independent streak! I recently brought Jack Postman Bear by Julia Donaldson. I'd heard a lot of good comments about this book so thought I'd buy it Jack. It's about a bear who delivers letters. Jack really enjoys looking at the pictures in this book and finding the flaps on each page. The illustrations are fantastic and have really captured his imagination.

The toys that Jack has loved playing with... Cars and Harold the Helicopter.

Jack absolutely adores anything related to transport. Trains, cars, planes and helicopters - if it moves Jack will love it. For Christmas he received lots of cars. He received cars of different sizes and honestly has played with them ever since. It's amazing how a small car can capture his attention. They have been great to take on outings or longer car journeys.

We recently went to Butlins for the weekend and brought Jack a small toy for the car journey. He loves Thomas The Tank Engine and Helicopters so I opted for the small Harold The Helicopter. He has enjoyed it that much that we have also brought him the larger helicopter. This helicopter has been everywhere that Jack has this month including, his bed, the highchair and outside. He has even tried to take it in the bath with him!

The TV that Jack has loved watching... Fireman Sam

Jack loves watching Fireman Sam. He will specifically ask to watch it when we put his cartoons on. He loves fire engines and will often name some of his toy characters Sam during pretend play. I have seen the current episodes many times so I am happy to hear that there will be new episodes of this coming soon.

 The food that Jack has loved eating... Kiddylicious Fruit Wiggles

Jack is a very fussy eater. He is currently cutting his molars which is making the situation worse. I am really relying on healthy snacks to ensure that he is getting his 5 a day and all the nutrition he needs. I came across Kiddylicious snacks this month and was very happy to have found a healthy snack that Jack will eat. He has been eating the strawberry and apple fruit wiggles as part of his morning snack. That's one of his five a day sorted!

The product that mum has found helpful... Oilatum Junior Cream

Jack has been suffering with flare ups of eczema and dry skin recently. The winter months tend to really dry out his skin and leave it in need of rehydration. A friend recommended trying Oilatum Cream.  A fragrance free cream, this product is ideal for tackling eczema and other related dry skin conditions. We have been using it for three weeks, directly applying it after showering and I'm delighted that it has completely cleared up his eczema.

Have you tried any of these products? What does your toddler love? Leave me a comment below.
