Our Big Christmas Clean-Up

Posted on the 08 January 2015 by Alex_bumptobaby @bumptobaby_blog
That's it - Christmas is officially over in our house! The decorations have now all come down and are waiting to go back up into the attic until next year. The brand toys have all found brand new homes and I am utterly exhausted! Our Big Christmas Clean-UpOur Big Christmas Clean-Up
 I loved our Christmas home decor, but taking apart an artificial tree and removing what seems like hundreds upon hundreds of baubles felt sort of like watching paint dry, but it's done, and now I can finally sit back and relax in my somewhat empty looking living room. And I think that it would be fair to say that I actually missed it looking so empty. It's nice and clear and I can finally move around.
We seem to have gained more floor space and it's pretty nice to once again see the oak from our engineered wood flooring peeking out from below our cream rug. The extra floor space has come in quite handy for little Ethan and all of his brand new toys too! We've got Duplo to build, colouring books to fill, tons of new books to read, trains to push around and even a toy hoover to clean with! And today we've been playing with the Teksta robotic Dino T-Rex from Debenhams, which is one of Ethans current favourites from Christmas! Our Big Christmas Clean-UpOur Big Christmas Clean-UpOur Big Christmas Clean-Up
Teksta's a clever little dino - he responds to our voices, physical gestures AND lights and sounds and he'll roar, snap and change eye patterns. Ethan think he's great! And I have to admit that Adam and I do enjoy sitting down to have a play with him too. ;) We've been learning how to command Teksta to walk, stop and move his arms and tail, it's great fun! Oh and Ethans favorite thing to do with him is to feed him his bone,, watch him munch it all up and then hear him let out an almighty dino burp! - Nice, eh? ;) It's quite a good little toy for around £30-£40 bearing in mind it has 100 physical and interactive play features. 

There are some fab toys about for youngsters at the moment aren't there?! There's literally loads to keep them entertained. All of the toys Ethan received for Christmas have been a huge hit, another favorite of Ethan's is his Dyson ball toy hoover from his Grandma and Grandpop! He just won't put it down! Though, I'm sure with the amount of new toys Ethan received over Christmas that by the time he's three years old, there won't be anymore room in our house for anymore of his toys!
