Moluk: What’s a Bilibo?

Moluk: What's a Bilibo?

You may have noticed; we LOVE playing with our kids. It’s one of those secret parenting perks – getting to relive your childhood and experience new, fun toys and games without anyone telling you, you’re too old. And call us old-fashioned… but most of the time you just can’t beat the simple things. Manual toys without any screens, batteries or other gimmicks are the best allowing for hours of play without causing a head ache or cluttering up our home.…

Fathers Day: Celebrate Dad

It’s Monday and with Father’s day this Sunday it’s time to give credit where credit is due. I’m talking about all the incredible fathers, doing their part in raising their kids. The men we call the great loves of our lives, the ones that stick with us – raging hormones, stretch marks, loose belly skin, saggy breasts and all! It’s time to celebrate dads and (our Mr. Perfect too). First however, confession time… Are you a parent to your kids…

Barbie Design and win your dream dress

Sometimes life surprised you with unexpected blessing and fun opportunities. Getting to work with my childhood icon, Barbie are one of those and getting to share this with our daughters… That’s a priceless memory. So, a few weeks ago the girls were asked to design their very own dream dresses for Barbie. It could be anything they wanted it to be! Any colour, any length with as much or as little detail as they wanted. There was no limitations and they…

#shoplocal : Our Fashion favourites for A/W 2018

June 5, 2018
KIds winter Fashion

Supporting local and buying proudly South African is a choice we made a few years ago, around the time our eldest Eliana was born. Little by little we made changes, buying more consciously and building a home (and especially a closet) filled with items made by our fellow countrymen. Step one was shopping small, have a look at “The Ultimate list of proudly South African Clothing Brands for Kids” in a post from a few weeks ago. Step two has…

Enchantimals: Is there room for another doll on the toy shelf?

Just a Mamma Enchantimals toy review

Earlier this month saw the launch of Mattel’s new doll line, the Enchantimals in South Africa. Our girls were lucky enough to receive 4 of the products launched, beautifully packaged and delivered to our door. I’ll be honest, when this amazing little package arrived I was clueless. We don’t allow a lot of screen time and only have Netflix. So, we decide what the girls may watch. Admittedly a lot of the time we selfishly stick to our own childhood…

The ultimate list of Proudly South African clothing brands for kids.

May 17, 2018

One of the most asked question we get is; “Where did you buy your girls those outfits?” Whether at church in their Sunday bests, or comfy casual exploring over weekends… We always get stopped and asked about what they’re wearing. The answer stays the same; proudly South African of course. We made a choice to support local first and that’s why 80% of what the girls wear is manufactured in South Africa. The other 20% goes for items we can’t…

It’s May and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, (like just over a week away), it’s time to get those spoils for mama sorted!

Preparing Homemade Baby food: mommy and baby

As promised, the follow up post to #MOMMING101: INTRODUCING SOLIDS. And today’s all about preparing homemade baby food. Baking, roasting, boiling… There are loads of cooking methods yet steaming has stayed the number one choice when it comes to preparing baby food, locking in most nutrients. This being said, some foods are definitely more flavourful when baked so don’t forget to give alternative cooking methods a go as well. Consuming raw foods are also a healthy option as long as the…
