For those who have followed my blog in previous years, you know that I will conduct a quick review of each of these products and then offer one to giveaway to lucky All Mum Said readers. WooHoo!

Like everything we buy for our kids, we want to get the most value for money that we can. This is where the SmarTrike Explorer is perfect; it is essentially 5 trikes in 1 with the same (and more) features of a stroller. I love that this innovative product grows with your child from approx. 10 months through to 3 years of age. If this doesn’t give you value for money I don’t know what does! We all know some kids need help to stay entertained while you are doing your daily run-a-rounds or while out on your daily walk, this will certainly achieve that goal.
Stage 1: Sleeping Mode – Ideal from 10 months, this is perfect for walks and outings as your little one can nap while on the go thanks to the impressive 110° reclining seat. The benefits don’t end there though, it features built-in suspension and shock absorbing rubber wheels in addition to providing little ones with weak back and shoulder muscles the support the need. For parents who have tried similar trikes, this is offers full control as the front wheel swivels an amazing 360° which also means it is super easy to steer!
Stage 2 & 3 : Stroller Mode – For those active little ones who want to just get in and do what the big kids are doing, they can pedal and steer. Parents still have control of direction as the child’s steering handle is separately controlled to the parents handle which means it can be disengaged. Using this feature, the child can steer without it actually affecting the trikes direction. The pedals can be folded in for safety if your child isn’t quite up to learning that. The pedals can also be isolated from the front wheel as they learn at their pace.
Stage 4: Trike Mode – Ideal for approx. 2 year olds; by simply pressing the Navigation button it transforms from stroller to trike mode. This option gives toddlers more control as they grow in confidence while parents still maintain control if required.
Stage 5: Child Control – Your child can now have full control of the bike with the parent handle being removable.
Available in a wide range of colours, the SmarTrike Explorer is available from Target, Big W and Toy ‘R’ Us.
Prize Includes: 1x SmarTrike Explorer 5 trikes in 1 (Purple in colour as above). RRP $199.95.
Code Castor Board & Helmet
For the active kids in your life, check out the new Code Castor Board! It is fun and encourages children to get outside and enjoy the fresh air while getting exercise.

Globber MyFREE Up Scooter
Young children want to get involved and try new things as well, especially if they have older brothers and sisters like my daughter does. She sees them riding their scooters and wants to do it too. Unfortunately their scooters are far too big for her, she is only 2 after all. But lucky for her Globber have seen that their is a hole in the market catering safe and practical rides for these young ones. The MyFREE Up is designed for kids aged 3+ (up to max 50kg) and full of features that make learning this new skill safe and fun. The deck is lower to the ground which means better stability, steering lock button that makes it easier to steer and the T-BAR handle bar adjusts at 3 different heights to cater to your growing child. The design is not only stylish but the ride is smooth as well! Available in dark blue, green, pink, purple and red.
Prize Includes: 1x Globber MyFREE Up (winners choice of colour) RRP $130.00.
Online printing has never been easier than it is with PhotoBox. They have a huge range of products that can be personalised, gifted and enjoyed – perfect for Christmas gifts! I impressed by their speedy turn around time, items were printed and received within a week and a half. I ordered a few canvas prints that turned out beautifully and a new coffee mug because I believe you can never have enough of those.
The canvas prints come in a range of sizes and thicknesses. I just got the standard size (which is thinner than every other canvas I have purchased elsewhere), if you want thicker ones you have to pay extra. This is also the case if you want hanging things included, they do not come attached either. I was surprised by this but cannot complain about the price or quality.
The mug on the other hand, I absolutely love!! I personalised it with photos of my family, a background that suited my taste and my absolute favourite part is the silver glitter interior. There were a couple of glitter options or plain bright colours but I cannot go past some glitter. Love it to bits!! There are so many sales and discounts on products at the moment as well so it is perfect for getting gifts at bargain prices.
Prize Includes: 1x $100 PhotoBox voucher. RRP $100.00.

Until recently I hadn’t heard of the Misfit Shine. Now however, it doesn’t come off my wrist which is great that it doubles as a watch! It helps me to stay motivated, which is essentially helping me to lose some of the weight I gained during pregnancy. I have set myself a goal, one that I know is achievable and gradually increase it to suit my improving fitness. I like that this tracks my activity throughout the day but I love that it tracks my sleep patterns as well. I have been able to regulate my sleep habits to improve the rest I do get. If you wanted to get really serious about fitness, you can use it to log your meals, it is 50m waterproof, doesn’t require recharging (just replace the battery when it is needed) and you can input which particular activity you will be doing – cycling, running, walking, swimming, etc.
In addition to this, it is stylish and doesn’t look or feel like an activity tracker. I have actually been complemented several times on it!
Prize Includes: 1x Misfit Shine (colour – Seaglass). RRP $89.95.

Smiggle is a household name when it comes to stationary and back to school goodies. I am a huge stationary lover so I am always on the scout for fun and unique office equipment. My kids are also the same when it comes to school items like their school bags, pencil cases, pens, etc. This year one of my boys had a Smiggle school bag and I am so impressed with the quality, with only a couple of weeks of school remaining his backpack is still in perfect condition (with the exception of it being a bit dirty). With ample pockets and storage space, I don’t have to worry about their lunch box not fitting, their homework folder being too large or where they will put their lunch money. They will definitely be getting them again for next year. I love that Smiggle release exciting new characters, prints and products to keep kids interested in what is usually quite mundane.

Curash Essentials Pack
The well-known household brand Curash has been a saviour with my newborn. She got nappy rash when she was only a couple of weeks old and within days of using the nappy rash cream it was completely cleared up. I am not usually a fan of thick zinc like products (similar to Sudocrem) but that is more to do with the tub they come in and how you have to scoop your fingers in the tub; the Curash nappy rash cream comes in a tube which is so much better. I like it more because I believe it is more hygienic and the cream doesn’t get stuck underneath my finger nails. Majority of the other products in the picture above are used daily for her bath and after bath care. She loves massages so the sorbolene cream is perfect for keeping her precious skin protected.
Prize Includes: 1x Curash Anti Rash Baby Powder 100g, 1x Curash Medicated Nappy Rash Cream 100gm, 1x Curash Multi Healing Cream 75g, 1x Curash Soap Free Baby Bath 400ml, 1x Curash Shampoo & Conditioner 400ml, 1x Curash Sorbolene Cream 400ml, 3x Curash Fragrance Free Wipes Bulk Pack. Total Prize: $55.69.
Love To Dream
Summer is officially here which means that it’s time to pack the heavy blankets into the linen cupboard. Every parent is different but I personally don’t like putting blankets on my baby, I have this fear they will wriggle down and suffocate. This is why I have always been a fan of baby sleeping bags. We are currently using the Love To Dream Nuzzlin Sleep Bag, 0.2 TOG, which is perfect for Summer because it is equivalent to having a nice light sheet over them. The fabric is super soft on sensitive skin but strong enough to withstand the washing machine and tumble dryer. It is soft, stretchy and comfortable! To find out else I love about the Love To Dream Nuzzlin CLICK HERE or to purchase visit the Love To Dream website.
Prize Includes: 1x Love To Dream Nuzzlin 0.2 TOG Sleep Bag (winner can select size and colour) RRP $44.95.
Anyone who knows me in real life knows that I wear thongs/pluggers/flip flops all year round. This is not just a recent thing, I have worn them since as far back as I can remember. A surprise to some lately though, I have been changing it up! I have been hitting the footpaths, shopping centres and local parks in my new emerald green Mox shoes. They are slip-ons that are made from 100% man made rubber and they are unbelievably comfortable, even with my broad foot! When they arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to see what they looked like in person. I was so impressed with the vibrancy of the colour and they came in a gorgeous red reusable string bag (that my 2 year old daughter has now claimed). Mox shoes are comfortable, stylish and practical!
Prize Includes: 1x Mox voucher for the shoes of their choice. RRP $39.99.
Indie & Sloan
We all know a little fashionista that likes to wear the finer things and for me, that is my 2 year old daughter. She loves anything a little unique, different and fun. For children like this; Indie and Sloan is the answer! They have a wide range of fun printed t-shirts to suit each and every personality, I just wish I could get some in my size. My daughter choose the Tea Cup Doll shirt and I dare say it was because it has pink and a mad hatter type print on it. I personally love the neon pink ink (it is water based for those concerned) and the shirt is soft 180 GSM 100% Combed Cotton. To view the rest of the Indie & Sloan products CLICK HERE.
Prize Includes: 1x Indie & Sloan tee (winner can choose print and size). RRP $35.95.

Prize Includes: 1x Artline Stix sampler pack. RRP $29.00.
