  1. Pacify teething babies with style
     

    GUMIGEM, the necklace that combines high-fashion with something little-ones can chew  - recently a finalist for Practical Pregnancy and Parenting Magazines Awards for Best Innovative Product under £30.
     

    Calling all new Mums; look stylish and pacify a teething baby with GUMIGEM, the funky necklace range that’s safe for young ones to teethe on. Already a favourite with celebrity yummy mummy, Denise Van Outen, GUMIGEM is the brain child of Jenny McLaughlan from Dundee.
     

    A mother herself, Jenny found it impossible to wear a necklace around her baby. Her little nipper would pull and bite on anything that hung from her neck, but instead of resigning herself to a life without accessories, and constantly picking up teething rings off the floor, Jenny had a brain wave. What if she could create a pendant that was safe for baby to put in its mouth but also looked attractive? That’s when GUMIGEM was born.
     

    Featured in her regular column in Prima magazine, Denise Van Outen said: “...I’m loving this GUMIGEM teething necklace. Betsy’s really been suffering with her molars coming through and this is just the right size for her to chomp down on. Great for keeping little hands occupied when I’m holding her, too genius!”
     

    Made of silicone, the GUMIGEM is baby safe, non toxic, and suitable for sterilisation or a dishwasher - basically meeting the same standards as any other teething item. Plus, with a breakaway clasp, even the strongest of little people won’t end-up strangling their mummies.

    Also featured in regional national press, some examples include the Scottish Sunday Express, Scottish Televisions The Hour,  Insights Magazine and Real People Magazine.  Plus Gumigem got a retweet from Theo Paphitis on twitter during his Small Business Sunday session. A recent exhibitor in The Baby Show for Trades Innovation zone, Michelle Heaton chose a Gumigem and said ‘its so pretty and matches my dress!’

    GUMIGEM necklaces come in a range of designs and are affordably priced between £10 and £12.50. Visit www.gumigem.co.uk  to purchase

  2. So, another week and another game to review from the brilliant Blog Match and Imagination Games.

    kalideThis week is Kalide, which is a magnetic battle game for players aged 8+ and is for 2 players only.

    I played this with my daughter Ashleigh, who is 5 years old. Despite it not being her age range this was perfect for her and she enjoyed playing the game.

    The idea of the game is that you sit either end of the magnetic mat and take it in turns to flick, slide and collide your magnetic pucks to each side to score points. You can also try and knock your oppositions pucks off the mat and after three rounds you can count your scores to find the winner!

    A great game which dosen't take too much thought but a bit of practise!

    The game can be bought from Amazon here for £19.99.
