{Review & Giveaway} Bloom & Grow Catalogue Launch 2015 + Review of Krooom Toys

I was delighted to be invited to Bloom and Grow Catalogue Launch 2015, held at Five Little Monkeys CafĂ© at Pico Creative Centre.

where it showcased a massive range of baby and kids' products carried by different brands, just perfect and in time for this coming Christmas. I am already writing down the list of what to get for the babies as the season of giving is approaching.

Skip Hop totally won me over with their really adorable and highly functional range ! If your kids love animals, Skip Hop's products are totally the one to go for ! Xav is still using his 5 year old - Skip Hop Zebra Backpack. Get your fingers ready to scroll !

Skip Hop product range

Suitable for three months onwards,

Skip Hop - Explore & More Collection Roll-around Rattles (Hedgehog)

Skip Hop - Explore & More Mix & Match Book

Skip Hop Forget-Me-Not  Insulated Food Jar and Straw Bottles range

Older kids will love this see through compartment of the haversack ! It helps to let the child see if they have left their lunchboxes behind or simply keep the To-do list for the day visible. I bet they will be reminded for sure !

Skip Hop Forget-Me-Not Backpack (Left)

Skip Hop Forget-Me-Not BPA Free Lunch Kit

Skip Hop - Zoo Snack Cup range

Skip Hop - Zoo Take-Along Nightlight (Owl)

You can consider these light-up surfers for 12 months and above. They will glow and light up once they touched the water.

Skiphop - Zoo Light-up Surfers

I am in love with the Bee !! Too adorable !

And if you can't get enough of the adorable animals and insect prints, go for their ZOOjamas! The material is very soft and how lovely was the butterfly PJs set which Vera modelled in, heart the lovely shades of pastels !

Skip Hop ZOOjamas - Butterfly

All kids love Trunki don't they? It's multifunctional while it holds the kids' barangs during travelling, the kids get to sit on it when they need a seat for their tired legs. A win-win solution, making travelling extra fun for the little travellers!

Xav did a "walk-in" riding on the Trunki - Fire Engine

Kitty fans will love the one Vera rode on !

Trunki - Hello Kitty Liac

Next check out Pearhead range of products ! When I saw the Chalkboard Decal Growth Chart and the Baby's milestones cards. First thoughts that ran through my mind was how nice if Vera can be a baby once again so that I can purchase a set of these unique cards and snap more pictures of her growing milestones. The First Year Felt Belly Stickers make great gifts for the new additions too !

Pearhead - Baby's Milestone Cards

Sunnies to protect the little ones' eyes against the harmful UV? Surprisingly the cut fitted Vera's face pretty well as most of the time, the frames which she tried on, tend to slip off her nose bridge.Frankie Ray have a range for new borns right up to 3 years old and the shades totally comply with the Australian standards AS/NZS: 1067.

Here's my model for the day with Frankie Ray shades.

 Nuby showcased a large collection of their products too !

Some of which that had caught my eye.

I love this snacks catcher to bits ! Too adorable to be scary. This "teeth" are soft rubber flaps which could help prevent the snacks from spilling.

Sleeping bags to keep the little cozy at bedtime.

The Gro Company

Ubbi 3-in-1 potty - which can function as a potty, a toilet trainer and a step stool, all in one. How cool it is !

Krooom was another label that caught my attention with it's beautifully designed brief case which houses unique yet environmental friendly playsets ! I am in full support for such playsets as compared to electronics as such toys allow the child to unleash their creativity, let their imagination run and create their very own stories through the imagine play.

Krooom playsets

Smaller kits includes Fold my Trunki design, 6 designs for Fold-my-Robot range, 15 designs for the Play sets range. There are 5 designs for the puzzles too !

Krooom -  Fold my robot

I was reading through the brochure and I spotted these really nice and cool sets like Galactic Police 738 - Space Station Playset. The boys will love this !

Yes, I could not resist the beautiful kits and asked if they were for sale on the event itself as I have the intention to purchase them as gifts. Unfortunately, they were not for sale. But we did  received a goodie bag from the event itself and I was delighted to find these two sets - Fairies Tree 3D Play Set and Police Car- Fold my car, in it !

Not only they are eco-friendly, Krooom's products are made out of Laminated Printed Board. It is extremely sturdy even in the toddler's hands, I need not worry that she may tear or destroy the cardboard.

One bonus point was, no tools were required to set up and it comes with a step by step instruction sheet. I left the entire set for Xav to set up while Vera was busy playing with the ready made fairies.

The playset is lightweight enough to be brought out and keep the little ones occupied while waiting for their meals. This mummy is trying to work towards gadget free moments. =p

And the Police Car was just nice for the bears to patrol in, keeping the cardboard neighbourhood safe !

I bet Vera would love Bucky too ! I can imagine that she is going to put her bears (mini counters) at the back and zoom them around !

I hope the above gave you some ideas on what to get for the little ones if you are still racking your brains over what gifts to get for gift exchange or to gift. Personally, I think they make great gifts !You can find them on the shelves at Motherswork, Hamley, or
