  • The Gift of Play!

    3. December 2019

    By 2050, the plastic in our landfills will reach 12 billion metric tons. This plastic inevitably ends up in our environment; either by leaching chemicals into our soil or our oceans. As a society we have moved away from the ‘make do and mend’ era and into a more consumerist extreme; ‘use once and throw away’.

    90% of the toys that are manufactured each year are made from plastic because it is cheap to produce and lightweight.  Even toys that aren’t made primarily from plastic are packaged in a multitude of single use plastic packaging, which once used for its initial purpose (housing the product) usually cannot be recycled or re-purposed for anything else. Since manufacturers have moved away from responsibly and ethically creating new toys, the responsibility has fallen onto the consumer. But what can we do if we don’t want our little ones to miss out?

    Buy an experience! Experiences can offer so much more that a plastic present: they allow us to build intellect, will, imagination, memory and perception.  They create lasting memories of positive experiences and strengthen the bond between you and your little one. In addition they improve your little one’s physical capability as they can develop their fine and gross motor skills through climbing, sliding, crawling and singing (your vocal chords are a muscle too!).

    An experience like the Gift of Play here at Gymboree Play & Music could help fast track their development by stimulating them through play. In our classes you will also be building your little one’s social life (and yours!) as they make new friends and bond with their classmates week after week. By learning through play and building lasting memories together you will be strengthening your bond with each other and fostering their learning in a safe and fun environment. With our unlimited open gyms, you can practice outside of classes as well; watching them grow and progress week by week.

    Finally, if you are a grandparent looking for an environment that’s fun, safe and educational and somewhere you can bond with your grand-children, then The Gift of Play is perfect for you too!

  • Piccolo’s new look and new launches!

    Piccolo’s new look and new launches!28. May 2019

    Continuing their mission of making 100% organic, balanced and nutritious food inspired by the Mediterranean, Piccolo’s new products are designed with busy families in mind.

    The stylish new pouch packaging design launching this month accentuates the ingredients within and clearly communicates the brand’s ethos of helping families enjoy life’s adventures to the full. The ingredients, dietary information and nutritionals are even more clearly labelled and the new packs are the first UK baby food to include a QR code, linking through to more detailed information on the Piccolo website – so parents can find out exactly where those delicious, organic ingredients come from.

    But that’s not all; Piccolo are also launching several new ranges – including a new cooking at home range featuring stock cubes and stir-in sauces, specially developed for little ones. They are low in sugar and salt, and the stir in sauces are one of your babys’ 5 a day; meaning one less thing to worry about.

    That’s not all – there’s also snacks – Piccolo’s new snacking range includes Italian inspired breadsticks and tasty teething wafer Squares handily packed in on-the-go packets.  

    Cat Gazzoli, founder of Piccolo says: “At Piccolo we are always looking at new ways to help families enjoy nutritious meals and snacks without the worry or hassle. Our new pouch meals, healthy snacks and cooking range aim to take away the stress of finding food that’s delicious and convenient for cooking at home or when you are on the go – leaving you with more time for what really matters.”

    “With balance and variety absolutely key to babies’ health and development, we’re excited to offer growing families an even wider range of ingredients, flavours and textures for their little ones to try developed by our in house infant nutritional therapist Alice Fotheringham.”
