Nemo Bubbly Bath – Review

Nemo has to be my children’s number one fish – they love his brightly coloured body and are always on the lookout for him when we pop down to our local aquarium for the afternoon.  So when a bottle of Nemo Soft & Gentle Bubbly Bath landed through our letterbox, they both squealed in delight saying “Please can we have Nemo in the bath tonight”.

Nemo BottleNemo Bubbly Bath is made by H&A, a brand we’ve come to know and love over the last couple of years, with some fabulous gift sets available at Christmas time.  My two had a great selection including Disney Princess and Jake and the Neverland Pirates which kept them occupied over multiple bathtimes, including bath fizzers, bath crayons and blow in the bath bubbles!

The Nemo Bubbly Bath itself has been specially formulated for a child’s delicate skin and is suitable for newborns upwards.  Being dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic and tear free, there really are no nasties in here to upset your child’s skin.  The bright images on the bottle really attract children to want to use it, which for me is a bonus as I know getting two children into the bath each night can be tough, especially when they are tired and grumpy, so there is nothing better than some fun bath products and toys to instantly bring them back to life ready for a fun time in the bath.

When bathtime arrived that evening, Miss M and Mister B couldn’t wait to get in and bath with Nemo, and see if his bubbles were really as soft and gentle as the bottle says.


With Nemo at the ready, the kids all excited,
The water was flowing for the bath of the night.
Miss M’s favourite clown fish, she wanted to pour,
And fill up the tub with some bubbles to explore.
So into the bath, Nemo’s magic ignited,
The children’s eyes lit up, they were so delighted.
It was bubbles galore, Oh, where to explore?
Look shouted Mister B, there’s more and more!
With a soft and gentle formula, I knew they’d be safe,
Hypoallergenic too and no tears on their face.
They giggled, they laughed, they played like little ones should,
Their imagination’s flowing, as much as they could.
With a pirate bubble beard, Miss M said “Let’s party”,
And Mister B shouted out, “Ahoy there, me hearties!”.
He then rolled a bubble ball, the biggest you’ve ever seen,
A snowball he said, then rubbed himself to get clean.
Miss M lay in the bubbles, she said it was like a bed of snow,
So soft and gentle around her face, right down to her toes.
After an hour of fun, it was time to get out,
Wrapped up in their towels, they waved Nemo night, night.
With soft, clean smelling skin, I tucked them to bed,
And watched them drift off to get all their zeds.
  With my little ones calm and asleep, I turned off the light,
Leaving them sweet dreams of Nemo, all through the night…


Nemo5As you can see, H&A‘s Nemo Bubbly Bath has been a total success with 6yr old Miss M and 3yr old Mister B.  They found the formula perfect on their skin and loved the bubbles.  Mummy loved the easy to pour bottle with a simple clip down lid and it’s also excellent value for money.  We would definitely recommend Nemo Bubbly Bath to others to try!

Nemo3We even took a peep at the H&A website to see what else was on offer and their eyes lit up as they made a wishlist of all the products they want to try.  Mister B has his eyes on the Jake and the Never Land Pirate goodies and Miss M spotted the Disney princess haircare.  She has curly, unruly hair so she wants me to buy the Ariel detangler for her to try!

We think H&A have a really fun, exciting range of toiletry products for children, with a wide range of characters, there’s something for everyone.  But the thing that really shines for us, is the different types of fun products, such as the bath fizzers and fun shaped sponges – it really does help entertain little ones in the bath and keep them amused, making bathtime a much more pleasant and enjoyable experience for parents!!

We received the Nemo Bubbly Bath to review and this is our entry into the Tots100 Bathtime Fun Squad ambassador competition with H&A.

DC Super Friends Magazine

My children love magazines and are always lured by the toys on the front cover so when we received the brand new DC Super Friends magazine their eyes lit up eager to see what was inside.  DC Super Friends is all about the world’s superheroes such as Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash and many more along side their baddies.  The magazine is primarily aimed at young boys between 2-5 years old and every issue comes with a free toy.

DC super friends magazineThe first issue comes with two communicators with switching screens which you can turn over to show different characters.  Mister B was immediately drawn to these and couldn’t wait to pretend talking into them and spent the rest of the day carrying it around.

The DC Super Friends magazine is full of activities including a story, colouring in, observational puzzles, spot the difference, code puzzles and much more.  There is also a making section to create a Batman mask and Batmobile by cutting and sticking onto card – great for little ones that love to make – I know my children do.

DC superfriends magazineI think this magazine contains a great variety of activities for little ones to do, inspiring their imagination and lots of quick fire questions and observations to keep them alert and thinking about things.  Mister B was fascinated by all the super heroes, Batman being his favourite the moment.  He loved spotting Batman’s logo as we went though the magazine and asked me what others were that he didn’t already know.  He also liked the page discussing colours and he went through each superheroes outfit telling me what the colours were.

Overall I think this is a lovely magazine for young boys, although at the younger age they will require supervision to complete this, but for me it is a nice activity for me to sit down and help Mister B with.

There’s also a couple of competitions included which you can get involved in to win superhero prizes so if you fancy trying a copy with your children when the DC Super Friends magazine goes on sale in the UK on the 19th September 2013 which you can find in supermarkets and newsagents.

Good discounts are available for subscribers, details of which can be found at and within the magazine itself.
