Alphabet Cards from The Appealing Rabbit – Review

Alphabet Cards from The Appealing Rabbit are a rather cute, large size deck of cards designed to assist your children to practice their letter writing.  The pack comes in a box which includes a black wipeable pen with eraser on the end.

alphabetThe set contains all 26 letters of the English alphabet plus a couple of extra for other languages.  Be aware that the letters included are all capital letters so probably best for a slightly older child than one who is only just learning their letters.

alphabet3Mister B is 4 yrs old and has known his small letters for a while now.  He recognises all his capital letters but hasn’t had much practice writing them other than those in his name so this was a good opportunity for him to get used to them.

alphabet2The Alphabet Cards are glossy and fully wipeable from pen marks making them durable and a bit tougher than normal cards.  What I really love about them though is the illustrations.  Such cute, hand drawn designs, really different and unique from anything else I’ve seen.  They also give you talking points to have with children, such as what objects they can see in the pictures, which always goes off on a tangent with Mister B and he finds plenty to chat about once given a starting point.

alphabet4These beautifully designed cards are an interactive way for children to learn their letters.  You can even play a game with them and there is a score card to mark points.  If your child completes a letter neatly they get a point, if not you get the point.  Obviously they want to win, so it encourages them to try hard.

This is a cute set that is handy to carry around and play when travelling and either in or out of the house.

Gorgeous Mother’s Day Cards – Review

With Mother’s Day on it’s way very soon on Sunday 15th March, finding the perfect Mother’s Day card can sometimes be tricky.  Made With Love have some really beautiful and totally unique designs that I’m sure any mum would truly love.

mothers day cardsThe cards are delivered in a box, each wrapped in tissue to protect their pretty decoration.  Each card is printed on pearlised card, with a pearlised paper inner layer inside.  My cards are blank inside but you can have them personalised with any words you like and also additional words added to the front on certain cards.   These cards do come with “Happy Mother’s Day” on the front already.

mothers day cards 2I think the designs are beautiful and I would be more than happy to receive a card like this and know my mum would love them too.  The first two cards above are adorned with a vintage style crystal cluster and one has Nottingham lace with satin ribbon on.

The third card is for a child to give to their mum.  It has four sentences that are started then there is a space for your child to continue writing and complete the sentence. They are:

My Mummy laughs when I…

My Mummy loves me because…

If I could give Mummy anything it would be…

I love my Mummy because…

This is such a lovely idea and I will be passing this card to my husband to give to my daughter to fill out and give to me.  I can’t wait to read what she has written on Mother’s Day!  This card will be a lovely keepsake too, to look back on in years to come.

mothers day cards 3All in all a lovely selection of Mother’s Day cards.  Why not check Made With Love out?

Personalised Greeting Cards – Review

The Dog’s Doodahs is an online greeting card retailer, providing personalised cards delivered to your door.  They have a large range of humourous cards, but also some cute, animal and child friendly cards.  I was offered the chance to order a selection to see what I thought.

cardsWhen looking round the website I saw a lot of alcohol related cards, some amusing wine jokes which appeal to me and my friends.

I ordered this one for my friend for Christmas which I knew would give us a laugh as neither of us know what Leftover Wine is!!  This is a large style card with a glossy finish.  You are able to personalise both at the top and the name at the bottom.  I was very pleased with this and we both had a giggle when she opened it!

I also chose a cute personalised card for my daughter whose birthday is imminent and again on this card I could personalise both the name and the age.  The card is a nice size and one I hope she’ll enjoy when she opens.

 

 

I also selected a couple of the smaller non personalised cards to see what they were like.  I chose a few humourous ones that will be suitable for friends birthdays and am happy with all of them.

What I particularly like with ordering from The Dog’s Doodahs is that these cards are different, you won’t see similar ones elsewhere, giving them a more unique feel, rather than a lot of the more traditional high street cards that you immediately recognise.  The ordering process was simple and delivery was quick.

I am more than happy with the cards and online service received and would happily go back and order more cards from them.  Why not take a look for yourself?
