I’ve always loved using aden + anais muslins with my babies. They’re great quality, and so pretty too! But I recently found out that not only do they make the best muslins, but aden + anais also have a range of really cute baby clothes!
Baby N was sent this adorable dress and we’ve teamed up with aden + anais to offer one lucky In The Playroom the chance to win another gorgeous outfit.

This is a fabulously easy, but deceptively challenging and frantically fun game, suitable for all ages, from about 8 upwards – and perfect for Easter holiday gatherings and get-togethers! In this ridiculously simple game up to four players at a time dig into a bowl of colourful everyday items to find the six objects pictured on their card. Each card has pictures of six very recognisable items – an ice cream, dog, plane, rabbit, boat, scissors, starfish, teddy etc. – on it; each one a particular colour. Using both hands you have just 15 seconds to rummage through the contents of the bowl and find all of your objects before the timer goes off!
We’ve got our hands on an exclusive prize bundle of toys worth up to £50. This fantastic bundle has a selection of toys for children aged 4-12 and is up for grabs for one lucky winner to win. With Half Term around the corner, this toy bundle will be perfect for keeping the children entertained if the weather has messed up any Days Out plans.

I’ve always been a fan of malt loaf. It’s so squidgy and delicious, and is such a handy food to have in the house. Now with Soreen Lunchbox loaves it’s even handier as it comes in individually wrapped portions which are great for kids lunch boxes, picnics or after school snacks.
