Around March this year we told you guys about a cool app by Me Books, a great story book app for your iPad or iPhone and iPod touch. Me Books features classic story books like Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man. Me Books now have a larger collection of books from the vintage Ladybird books to modern favourites Elmer, Topsy & Tim and Peppa Pig. 

Our little beeniebud is 2 years old and enjoys reading, we had so much fun with the Me Books app. We totally enjoy the Read. Listen. Record. Save. Little beeniebud could personalise her books by drawing interactive hotspots to record their own stories and sounds. At first when we done this, she was so excited that her voice was part of the story. Other than little beeniebud voice, there are famous storytellers featured on app like Sir David Jason and Tamsin Greig. It’s nice to hear familiar voices from your favourite shows. Me Books have totally made our rainy weekend fun and we shall be looking out for more cool books to purchase! 

You can download the app here. Also upon download readers will have access to the beloved Ladybird Classics title ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ free of charge. Additional stories are available for between £0.69 and £1.99 each through In-App Purchase. Cool and affordable.

Wow! Another great show at Top Drawer London. This time round it was a show not to be missed because it was two shows for the price of one. Home London offered inspiring selection of stylish, high quality interior accessories from design companies in the UK and Europe! The children’s section seem to have more exciting and new brands and we was delighted to meet up with the designers too. We fell in love with everything but we came away with some cool companies on our beeniebuds&co wish list. Kidsonroof  a very creative dutch brand that sells creative and playful products for kids and adults alike. Great Casa collection which is recycled cardboard mobile homes and space rockets too, a fab way for little ones to expand their imaginative minds. Also the collectors house a great way to display your fab finds. Then there is Fill & Tell a Sweden brand that have these highly creative books with lovely illustrations which allows you to store your memorable moments in book about me and for my grandchild. If you love your biscuits with your tea and these cute pillows by  Nikki Mc Williams might work as well too. All  hand printed cushions inspired by Britain’s favourite tea-time accompaniments. Love them. We are looking forward to the next show and do lookout for more posts on our wish list finds.
