Three things from London
- This month A Baby on Board has a new sponsor, the freshly launched GoBaby London app. Made by fellow London mum Jen, the app pulls together info about child-friendly London, baby changing spots and a guide to accessing the Tube with tiny people. The app looks fab, and like it could be a perfect anecdote to every urban mum’s pram-pushing woes. Full review to come soon, but make sure you take a look
- Want some ideas for things to do in east London with toddlers? I’m over on TFL’s DLR website talking about our favourite things to do along the route. Like most Londoners – especially the ones who don’t have to use it to get to work – we’re big fans of the Dockland Light Railway, as it always seems a lot more fun than the Tube, don’t you think? Let me know your favourite tips, too
- And finally, yesterday saw us return to the Olympic Park for the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games, where we saw a whole host of athletics and athletes including Jessica Ennis, Mo Farrah and Usain Bolt (wow he’s fast, who’d have guessed?) I can’t believe the Olympic Games were a whole year ago; strangely enough, we were sat in the same place we were for the Games and the weather was also identical. Sadly, the lovely landscaped park is now slightly overgrown and lots of it is a building site, but it’s being redeveloped for use for sports and entertainment (including children’s festival Lolibop, taking place in August, which you can read about this in another piece I wrote about the best things to do in London with kids in summer)
Photos are London-themed Happyland toys from the Mothercare and Early Learning press day I went to a few weeks ago. Have you seen the Royal baby Happyland toy set? Seems rude not to buy it, right? For Eliza…of course.
