Re: Best toy kitchen for an 18 month old?

We bought ours from George at Asda and it has survived two rough and tumble kind of kids and is still going strong. Lots of options there that won't break the bank.

Also, I just spotted a post on NVN of someone selling their kitchen. viewtopic.php?f=116&t=98475

Re: Bullying at local school

Best thing to do is talk to the teacher and the head. Honeywell will take this very seriously and I am positive will take action to stop it. It is a lovely school and bullying won't be tolerated. It is heartbreaking and your child should not feel like the only option is leaving. Sorry to hear you ar...

Re: Tools

It's not so common here but I remember there was some press around The Library of Things in SE19. They stock tools too, I think but you'd have to check if they have a keyhole saw.

Re: Councils condemned for 'shameful' rebranding of Black History Month

The controversy continues! The BBC online have now covered this too. Even though the decision was made by Wandsworth Council back in 2014, I think it was the wrong decision to make. I think it's disgraceful that our kids don't learn about black history in our schools. I don't think I really knew abo...

Re: Pregnancy gift

Have a look at This company originally started as alternative gifts for new mums (other than flowers) but has branched out into care packages for anyone who needs a bit of TLC. I would be happy to receive anything from here... just need to find a friend like you! 😃 😉

Re: School toilet policy

Gosh this is really tough. I think that young kids are naturally curious so I'm less concerned about that, but it's the part where this particular child is being manipulative. It may be that he/she is being told the same thing by a predator, or it may be that this kid is quite forceful and bordering...

I haven't got one but I recently went through this process. Do you know that there is a group on Facebook called Preowned Islabikes for sale. It might be worth joining it if you haven't already as a the one you want might come up for sale!

Re: Beware door step sales/ hawker

Thanks TrecleBell. We get ex convicts selling cleaning products on my road. They are never aggressive and don't seem perturbed if I say I don't want anything or have no cash. Sometimes I buy stuff and sometimes I don't. But you are right to flag this as we always get people at our door even though I...

Re: Nanny and kids interaction in parks/playgrounds

I think you are absolutely right to be concerned. You can't spend excessive amounts of time on the phone in any job and certainly not in a job where you are supposed to be looking after and engaging with kids. Having said that the scratch could have happened whether she was on the phone or not so I ...

Re: Antenatal Pilates or fitness classes recommendations

Try Lon Gibbons She used to run classes in Battersea but it looks like she is focusing on Earlsfield and Wimbledon now. Is that too far? I did her mum and baby class which was brilliant, but she also does pregnancy yoga.

Re: Party venue ideas for 3 year old

Another great one for anyone coming back to this thread for ideas is the Adventure Zone at the Wandle Recreation Centre, Mapleton Road, next to the Southside Centre. There is a private soft play area. You just need to bring your own food. I've had a few parties there and the kids always love it. You...
