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.…

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…

Just A Mamma Disney Be Amazing

Disney Princesses… Don’t we all have a favourite? That one princess that blew you away with her strength, charm and beauty. Someone you could look up to and aspire to be. For me it was (and will always be) Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast. The opening scene with her reading a book and dreaming of exploring the world described me to a tee – a little girl, stuck in a small town, always reading and plotting her way…

Barbie Fashionistas: See your own beauty!

Just a Mamma Barbie

Let’s talk body image… Not just your own but your little ones’ too. I’m a mother of girls. The way I love and value myself is the way they will value and love themselves. It’s a hard truth that I have had to learn but thankfully the lesson came early and the solution could be handled in a fun manner. Thanks to some help from an old, childhood friend… It all started with a theme at school, “I am special”.…
