I don’t know about you but bath-time is a big deal in our house. There’s nothing more that Max loves than stripping down and having a good old splash about, giving us a good soaking in the process.
A good quality bath towel is therefore essential when it comes to getting dry. So when we were given the chance to try an animal hooded towel from Minene I just had to say yes.
We opted for the blue animal towel, keen to add in a bit of colour and replace the white one that Max has had since he was born. The towel also comes in lemon, pink, green and white so there is something to suit every little baba in your lives.
The towel measures 70cm x 70cm. Max is a fair size for his age and it wrapped round him nicely but if he carries on growing at the rate he is it won’t be long before he outgrows it unfortunately. The hooded towel however is an ideal size for those precious newborns that have just entered your lives.
The towel is made from 100% cotton and had a lovely feel to it. Nice and soft so it was gentle on Max’s skin but not too fluffy that bits of fluff came off when drying. It even has a clever apron design, which secures via velcro round your neck, which allows you to keep dry and leaves both hands free for safe lifting. I think you can tell from Max’s face that it’s got his seal of approval.
I’ve already got my eye on the hooded cuddly towel range from Minene, which is a larger version of the newborn one and is suitable for toddlers, for when Max outgrows this one. After all, my little miracle baby deserves nothing but the finer things in life.

We’re trying to get Caspian to learn basis things like helping to tidy his toys, put things in the bin and his dirty clothes in the washing basket. He’s doing really well, though sometimes he takes everything out again. Just because he can…
When we were recently offered to review one of the stylish laundry bags from Minene I went for the navy colour with a white star print as it matches our guest bathroom. I envision that this basket can go in Caspian’s room when his older and hopefully he’ll continue to pop his laundry in there. Wishful thinking I know. Especially if he takes after me as I have to hold my hands up to not being the tidiest person that has ever walked this earth. I claim it’s due to my creative nature, but no one is quite buying it! At least I’m trying to teach him to be better.
The basket is made from cotton and easy to clean with a damp cloth. It also has handles which makes it super practical as it’s light and doesn’t add any significant weight, so when full you can carry it to your washing machine with ease.
Another great feature is that is folds flat and can be hidden away when not in use. Though let’s face it. if you have children your washing basket is ALWAYS in use, so you might as well invest in a design that’s easy on the eye, like this one.
It can naturally also be used for storage of shoes, clothes, toys, blanket etc.
This particular style of washing basket comes in six different designs and matches the rest of Minene’s fun interior design lines. It measures W37 x H55cm and retails at £32 with free shipping over £75. You can find the full collection on Minene’s website.

I’ve spoken a couple of times about chores for children, and I have a whole video chatting about it on our YouTube channel coming soon (will replace with a link once it goes live!) the girls, 4 and 3 are now at an age where they can start helping to keep their room a little tidier, one way we have been encouraging this is with this funky new laundry basket from Minene.
The Minene laundry basket (£32)
comes in 6 different designs, from a cute pale pink to a funky monochrome chevron. As the girls bedroom is currently deep plum and grey (it used to be our bedroom an we haven’t gotten round to decorating!) the grey chevron was the perfect choice for us. Made from cotton the basket has built in handles for easy transport and is lightweight, durable and practical. This is the perfect accessory to brighten up any room and has the added bonus that it folds flat when not in use…not that there is ever an empty wash basket in this house!
Now my girls love to get themselves changed about a thousand times a day so when I popped this in their room they got straight to work filling it with the random clothes they found dotted around the bedroom, hiding in toy boxes, squashed in between books on the book shelf, tucked into the end of the bed…you know the usual hiding places!
The laundry hamper fits in perfectly in their bedroom and looks great too. We have had it for a week now and as of yet, I haven’t found any clothes in places they shouldn’t be! It really has encouraged the girls to keep their room tidy…although it wouldn’t be a child’s room with a teddy or 2 on the floor right!
