We already know our readers love Sodastream!

Thanks to our recent review here, it seemed so many of you took an interest in this home sparkling drinks system, that Sodastream have returned to Six Little Hearts for a repeat review and giveaway! That's great news for those of you who missed out the first time.

Having a carbonated drinks maker on your kitchen bench is convenient, fun and makes you the absolute best parent in the eyes of your kids! It's also a system that is environmentally friendly too. Just one or two special Sodastream bottles are all you need to produce countless sparkling beverages well into the future, resulting in dollars saved at the checkout and a clearer conscience as well.

The Elf on The Shelf - A Christmas Tradition We've Adopted!

Have you got an Elf on the Shelf at your house?

We've been wanting one of these little Christmas elves forever. It's not been for lack of trying that we've only just adopted our very own Elf on the Shelf either. It seemed that every time we tried to scout for an Elf to call ours, it was always too late - the elves were either all adopted out already, or we were unable to get to a suitable adoption centre, (AKA - store), in time for Christmas.

This year we're so excited to finally have our very own elf in our home at last!

Micro Scooters Review - Active Family Fun for Everyone!

As our own children have grown, as parents, we have happily progressed along with them. In recent months we've finally become an active outdoor family together. You could say the preschool and primary age groups are the 'golden years' of parenting. Our babies are finished, the fussy toddler stages have thankfully passed, and we're now looking at some incredibly bright opportunities that haven't always been logistically possible for our family as a unit until now.

It's finally time to play in so many fun ways as a family. (Emphasis on the finally!)

For us this equates to participating in all kinds of enjoyable sports and activities each weekend, such as bike-riding, ball games, skateboards and scootering. Our kids are loving these regular opportunities for play just as much as us. Activities outdoors are a fantastic way to bond with your kids and it certainly helps to lift your profile in their eyes and lives. Whatever it takes!

Summer Fun Play Ideas for Your Own Backyard PLUS WIN 1 of 2 Sensational Waterpark Play Pools!

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Clark Rubber.

Summer is finally here in Australia! It's a time to celebrate in so many ways in addition to the arrival of the festive season. Gone are the cold grey skies, short dark days and the biggest bugbear of them all - bored children! Hip Hooray! This precious season is a joyous time to reap the very best of nature, and for kids, this means hours of outdoor fun daily for a whole long summer break.

It's time to pop on a swimsuit, grab a hose and get busy 'keeping cool' creatively, in a whole load of boisterous and lively ways within your own backyard!

Organix Goodies Review Plus Healthy Snacking Tips for Kids and A Giveaway!

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Organix.

Who doesn't enjoy an essential snack or two to keep them going each day?

While it's vitally important for kids to eat proper foods, little kids do require an extra nutritional boost between meals to assist their rapidly growing bodies. Running, playing, wriggling and learning are all a part of an average child's day, and these normal activities require a constant stream of calories to fuel them.

Snacking on the right foods is actually good for children!

Speedo Swimwear for Kids Review - Poolside Fashion for Little Ones

With summer officially here, it's time to consider the swimwear needs of the whole family.

Kids being kids, they tend to outgrow their swimsuits each season don't they? That, or they're in need of a constant new supply of suits due to the inevitable fading, stretching or snags from a summer spent having fun in the pool, at the beach or just playing outside.

This year Speedo have your kids' needs covered for a season (or two), with a range of swimsuits that are bang on-trend and quality in every way.

Salt Dough Recipe - Fun Craft Creations for Kids to Make in the Kitchen

Who says kitchen play always has to be about making something to eat? 

Our children rarely object to any opportunity to mess about in our kitchen. When it was suggested that we make some easy salt dough and create a few Christmas keepsake decorations for our tree this year, our kids were super-eager!

Remember the joy of creating with clay during your own primary school years? Well, salt dough is an easy to make and shape alternative that you can take care of in your own home. Thankfully, salt dough is less messy than actual clay and available to you whenever you wish. Just like clay, salt dough can be molded readily and sets hard after baking or air-drying. When the finished pieces are painted and decorated in the final stage, the results can be truly impressive and rewarding.

Nescafé® Dolce Gusto® Stelia Coffee Machine Review and Introducing The TerraCycle Capsule Recycling Program

In a household so thoroughly addicted to coffee, tea and hot cocoa, the presence of an automatic coffee machine to cope with the demand, is a necessity. We actually have several coffee machines on-the-go under our one roof. That's the level of our dedication to brews of all sorts.

A while ago now, we reviewed the shiny DeLonghi Nescafé® Dolce Gusto® Circolo coffee maker. From day one this appliance was, (and remains), a huge kitchen bench hit, delivering us barista-style brews daily.

Tips for Getting Your Outdoors, Summer-Ready for Kids...

This post is brought to you in collaboration with Thomsons Outdoor Pine.

With summer officially just days away, it's time to begin preparing for some wonderful long days spent outdoors. The warmer months offer ample opportunities to spread out and take in the season. Bring it on! To make this a relaxing reality, there's most likely a little ground work to cover for all of us.

There's nothing like getting the kids outside for a little healthy play to shake off all of that winter dust. Likewise, spring and early summer are an excellent time to get your garden and outdoor entertaining areas (even kids!), in shape for the hottest days to come. A little planning and work now, will hopefully see you (and your children), relaxing and enjoying some of the pending heat in suitable surrounds over the holiday season.

Childsmart Review - The Brio® Countryside Horse Set...

Six Little Hearts is a Brand Rep for Childsmart.

Living here in the fringe of Melbourne's eastern suburbs means we're surrounded by stunning scenery. There are beautiful views of mountains and wineries every-which-way. Cottage industries flourish here, as well as countless hobby farms.

Horses in particular, are a hugely popular feature dotted about this landscape. Selecting this month's charming play item from Childsmart, to share with you here on Six Little Hearts, was simply a no-brainer.

As I browsed the chocked-full Childsmart website for fun stuff by reputable toy company Brio®, I just knew as soon as I stumbled upon this Brio® Countryside Horse Set, that we were onto a BIG winner!

Storksak Caroline Baby Bag Review and a Storksak Sandy Nappy Bag Giveaway Worth $199! #SLHFeaturedThursdays...

I just love a good chat here on Six Little Hearts, all about bags! Long-time followers will be well-aware of my serious penchant for these luxurious things. In fact, over time, so many of you have emailed to ask me exactly which nappy bag I believe is the very best baby bag out there, (of vast collection we have road tested here), that I might as well state right here, right now - they're all excellent!

Truly they are.

Choosing an ideal mum and babe bag is very much a personal taste thing. As mamas, we've all got our differing needs when it comes to finding an ideal carry-all that hits the mark for our own specific demands. Some of us have fewer children and can get by with just a regular handbag or good-sized tote. Others, (like myself), have a very large family and need a bag that can accommodate the day-to-day requirements of a busy brood.

Click Clack Toys Review and Giveaway. Learning Through Play Naturally...

I think every parent has a preference for choosing wooden toys when it comes to selecting quality play things. Children seem to understand this endearment and reverence for natural materials too. Wooden toys have an interest factor all of their own don't they? They're weighty, attractive, quaint and basic. Wooden play things will last, often through several children in the same family, and then go on to entertain several generations from there. If you're planning on keeping treasured hand-me-downs to commemorate your children's younger years, then wooden toys are the ideal items to invest in.

Vtech® Kidizoom® Smart Watch DX Review #SLHFeaturedThursdays

Modern kids are a demanding lot. No doubt they take their lead from their modern parents who are for the most part, forever pawing away at the latest gadgets. It just makes sense doesn't it?:

Mum and dad have a mobile phone - they want a mobile phone too.
Tablet PC? All kids want one of those!
Got a smart watch? Then chances are, your kids are probably pencilling in one of these on their Christmas lists this year as well!

Cha-ching people!

Cinnamon Scrolls Recipe. Delicious, Easy and Kid Approved!

It's been a while since I had a good foodie post to share here. Apologies for that. The month of October was riddled with power and broadband issues for us. There wasn't a whole lot of cooking going on as a direct result. I missed baking and our kids missed eating the spoils. I did manage to score a good day here or there to bake these yummy cinnamon scrolls a few times however. #totallysharingthese.

Bellabox Bellababy Reveal October, Plus a Special Reader Discount Offer...

November already! Frightening I know. It's only so many days until Christmas now and I am shocked how fast this month has hit. Needless to say, last night I started Christmas shopping online. This year I shall be organised! (For some gift buying ideas to suit kids of all ages, see this Christmas Wish List Buying Guide.)

It's time to share the October Bellababy subscription box contents with you all here. Huge apologies this has gone up so late! We've had several unbelievably long power outages in October and numerous broadband issues which served to ice the proverbial cake. While it's all good now, eight days without electricity was definitely something to weep about. Five days without internet access on top of this, was a total endurance exercise!

Offering New Tastes - Weaning Tips Plus An Organix Review and Giveaway - November Aussie Giveaway Linkup

This post is brought to you in collaboration with Organix.

The desire to feed our babies and young children healthy foods is an ambition shared by all parents. Busy lives can complicate our best intentions on occasion however. While we juggle families of varying sizes, working lives and the endless pull of our own grown-up affairs, it can be difficult to stay on track when it comes to supporting these healthy objectives, one-hundred percent of the time. 

Thank goodness for healthy and convenient options for feeding our young ones, from brands such as Organix!

Imaginext® DC Super Friends™ Super Hero Flight City Review and Giveaway Worth $300!

With four boys under our roof, it's safe to say we're extremely well acquainted with the Imaginext range of toys. We've been buying this line for years, and these high quality playthings are still very much a big deal in our younger boys' lives.

In fact, the very first 'big kid toy' I purchased for my eldest son when he was just a toddler, was from the Imaginext range. I remember this well, because it was he who selected it all by himself at the store. We still have it too, only it's now part of a super collection that we've built on over the years.

FlipaZoo Toy Review... #SLHFeaturedThursdays

Christmas is fast approaching. Here we are mid-October already. My kids are writing (and re-writing) their wish lists weekly. The stores are loaded with decorations even though it all seems far too soon. It's only a matter of days until the blessed Christmas music begins to play in the supermarket aisles and that alone (for me), marks the moment where most of us parents really begin to feel the stress of the chaotic season!

Try not to stress too hard though. In the coming weeks here on Six Little Hearts, we have plenty of reviews lined-up and many with amazing giveaways too, to help you plan for the merriest of celebrations this December. There will be lots of great gift ideas and plenty of toy reviews which I am very excited to share.

Homedics Brethe Electrostatic Air Cleaner Review - Breathe Easy...

Maintaining cleanliness and hygiene within the home are especially important factors where families are concerned. Dirt and grime can be a breeding ground for germs, bacteria and viruses, many of which will inevitably find their way into the developing immune systems of children. Parents know only too well, that sick kids can lead to unwell adults as well. It can all culminate in a stubborn cycle of persistent illness that can be hard to conquer.

A Spring Skin Care Guide...

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Jurlique.

Spring is a time to re-energise our lives in so many positive ways. Getting outdoors and getting some much needed sunshine is not only refreshing, but motivating for us all.  

While we all tend to tidy up on the home front, (are you spring cleaning yet?), it's also a time of year where you might like to take a look at additional organising tasks, like sorting your wardrobe, cosmetics and skin care.

I personally love a good seasonal swap-around every three months, in-line with the weather. Just as it's no good wearing your winter boots in summer for the obvious reasons, your skin will thank you for the right care to match the climate changes year-round.

Managing the Home...

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Inspection Manager.

We consider ourselves a family who are very lucky to be in our own home. Having spent a good deal of this year battling a serious illness, nothing soothed our souls more during this time, than knowing we were comfortable and secure for the time being, within the safety of our own house.

Good Palm Oil IS Possible and How You Can Help... Support RSPO #GoodBadPalmOil

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with the RSPO.

Momentous shifts in our world begin with individuals and their actions.

Within each of us, exists the intrinsic capacity to take a thought and grow an idea. From focus and determination, our desires become a full-blown reality. It's a simple concept in theory that each of us naturally implements, because these fundamental steps lead to changes that are essential for our positive growth and development as humans.

This actuality is never more succinct, than when we apply this same concept to our environment.

Bobux Shoes Review - Delight in Gold!

*Six Little Hearts is an Australian Bobux Shoes Ambassador.

How delightful it is to finally see the golden sun this spring!

The majority of our school holidays were grey and wet here in Melbourne, yet despite the mostly drab weather, there were thankfully, lots of things to do indoors to keep the kids entertained. Once that sun shone however, we were outside and off to the park for some active fun, pronto!

Very recently, Six Little Hearts proudly formed a partnership with Bobux shoes, as an Ambassador for the brand. We're so excited to be able to preview the Bobux shoe range here in the coming months, and bring you some exciting reader giveaways too.

Somehow, those genius toy manufacturers manage to come up with little 'firecrackers' that take-off and bring so much joy and entertainment to masses of kids and their parents. Thank goodness too.

Euky Bear Blitz Nitz Spray and Go. Treat Headlice the Easy Way and Win...

This post is brought to you in collaboration with Euky Bear Blitz Nitz.

Like all parents, I really loathe infestations of head lice. It's not just because of the 'creep' factor either. (Though that's certainly a large part of it for me.) It's mainly all that extra treating, washing and faffing-about that sends me mad the most. Who needs or wants the extra work?

We've been counting ourselves rather lucky of late. There have been no new outbreaks of nits around here for many months. I am pretty thrilled about that!

Over time, I have observed that my own kids seem to peak in a cycle of nit outbreaks, mainly during the school holiday periods, or during the first couple of weeks of the school term. 

I reckon I'm onto something...

Royal Melbourne Show Review 2016. School Holiday Fun for Families #SLHFeaturedThursdays

It seems this spring is hell-bent on giving Melbourne a longer dose of winter for this year's Royal Melbourne Show. Just about every day since the Show opened on September 17, it has been a grey sky affair with drizzly patches, making it possibly a little less appealing for many, to venture out to enjoy this annual family drawcard.

Don't be put off however! We made the trek to the Show on day two after it opened and yes, skies were dark and there were occasional showers, but we were happy to discover that the fun was just as mighty as ever!

The Best Fluffy Pancake Recipe Ever...

We have a serious pancake addiction in our home. I don't think a week passes by where at least one family member doesn't suggest pancakes for a meal. You can't overlook hotcakes as a kid-pleaser at any time and they're more than ideal for feeding hungry children on school holidays.

I have personally always cherished a visit to the Pancake Parlour. Their pancakes are magically big and fluffy and taste divine with a side order of pure maple syrup. Unfortunately for us, the Pancake Parlour is not located nearby, so we don't get to go more than a couple of times a year. (Cue violins.)

So, see a need, fill a need. I have had to come up with my own version of copy-cat Pancake Parlour pancakes to satisfy my cravings and I am so excited to share this with you. These are super delicious!

Introducing GroupTogether - A Better Way to Say Thank You

This post is brought to you in collaboration with GroupTogether.

This family has just finished dealing with the big, bi-annual primary school production.

Boy, what a hectic time that was!

Getting our three boys prepared for their exciting school performance was a long and extensive process for all involved, both at home and school. (Thank goodness it's not annual!)

While the teachers and the entire school community worked tirelessly on rehearsals daily for around six weeks, my job on the home front, was paltry by comparison. I merely needed to run about buying the necessary clothing and props that we didn't have on hand for our sons. No doubt you know the ropes if you are a parent to a school-aged child.

Now that spring is finally here, it's easy to assume that the winter lurgies have moved on. On the health front, we've managed to get through the colder months relatively unscathed this year and it was a fist-pumping win for this mum. Then the cold, wet Melbourne weather hung on a little longer, and a few bright warm days collided to breed some unfortunate illnesses about our home.

Sodastream Power Review Plus WIN a Sodastream Power Worth $249! - Two to Be Won #SLHFeaturedThursdays

Every time I collect my kids from school during the warmer months, they begin bleating about the treats they hope to consume immediately, just as soon as they spot me. We're talking about the bought kind here. Forget about 'hello mum' or 'how are you?!' My hungry kids rarely care. They're more apt to ask if I brought my wallet along with me, so that they can benefit from its pathetic contents. 

Magic that!

Childsmart Worlds Apart Disney Toy Box Review. Toy Storage Solutions...

*Six Little Hearts is a brand rep for Childsmart.

Have you noticed that hints of Christmas have started to appear about the place? I know - Spring has only just sprung but already, catalogues and television commercials are mentioning the big day, despite it being months away. I am feeling the fear I can tell you, so much so that I have just begun to pick up a few bits and pieces here and there as I shop. I'm also collecting useful links online with unique gift suggestions for when things get really serious.

At the very centre of my fears surrounding the upcoming Festive season, is my stress about the mess and clutter we will be drowning in this December, if we don't get on top of controlling the playthings our children already own!

How Safe Is Your Family Car? The Importance of Regular Tyre Maintenance and Win, Plus September Aussie Giveaway Linkup

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Continental Tyres.

As parents, we've unwittingly signed-up to spend a good deal of our lives within the confines of our vehicles, as we ferry our children from one event to another, year after year. Those inevitable driving duties are an integral part of our parental role when it comes to raising our children.

Yet getting caught-up in our daily to-do's with our families, can so often result in us overlooking the importance of greater things, such as vehicle safety. Remembering to maintain your car beyond the annual scheduled service is a must and there's no better place to begin, than from the ground up.

Philips Series 7000 Vacuum Beard Trimmer Review. #SLHFeaturedThursdays

With Father's Day fast approaching, it's all about menfolk every-which-way you look at present, including here on Six Little Hearts. Have you found a suitable gift yet, for the significant man in your life? (All the best with it. It's quite a tough exercise to find something unique and purposeful.)

Thankfully for us, Philips very recently reached out and offered us the opportunity to try out their Series 7000 Vacuum Beard Trimmer. As soon as I told the hipster husband that such a device existed and that he was about to become a product tester, he was understandably over the moon. (Admittedly I was too. No need to stress myself shopping for the big event this year. Ideal!)

Bright Star Kids Review - Father's Day Gift Ideas to Treasure and A Giveaway...

It can be incredibly hard to find decent and meaningful gifts for dad when Father's Day rolls around each year. This annual event only seems to offer the 'same olds' in the ideas department when it comes to manly gift suggestions. You all know them well: socks, undies, stubby holders and key rings. Yadda-yadda... All are a little boring and yawn-inducing in anyone's opinion.

It's stupidly-difficult to find something stand-out and unique, even surprising for dad. Furthermore, men tend to prefer useful things too, (hence the popularity of socks) just to make a hard task almost impossible.

All of this combined, adds up to a bit of a headache for the rest of us where gift-giving is concerned.

My Family Photo Review. Our Family Photoshoot Experience...

Time flies by so quickly when you're a parent. It's important to capture the moments as they unfold before you with lots of photographs because, just as the saying goes, childhood really does pass by in the blink of an eye.

We have two teenagers in our home already and I always find myself thinking when and how did that happen? It seems like just yesterday, that they were each slobbering little babies, rolling about on the floor. It's hard to accept that two of our children are now taller than me!

Wriggling With Babylove and Hi-5! A Special Event to Remember and A Babylove Giveaway...

We were so very excited to be invited to a super-special morning recently, with children's superstars Hi-5! Babylove nappies have teamed-up with the popular children's entertainment group to form a unique partnership via an ultra-soft and comfortable nappy developed especially for little wrigglers.

From the moment this opportunity cropped up, we were positively a-buzz with excitement and anticipation. I am a long-term fan of Hi-5 and every child we've raised has been fascinated with Hi-5's energy, music and dance routines. (We may even know some of the moves and grooves very well. Make that 'I.' Wink! I am sure you other grown-ups reading might too!) 

Our youngest is not surprisingly, a mega-Hi-5 fan too!

Did you know Sesame Street has entertained more than three generations in their forty year run? It's undoubtedly one of the top educational children's programs on television, teaching everything from the ABC's to counting, life lessons and music appreciation. In that time, nearly every one of us have grown up with the Sesame Street gang and many remain big fans still.

DC Super Hero Girls Arrive at Target and A Wonder Woman Sleepwear Giveaway for Girls! Aussie Giveaway Linkup August

Growing up in the 1970's, I was infatuated with Wonder Woman and had my fair share of real-life sprained ankles, bumps and scrapes imitating her athletic antics to go with it. At that time, women remained an emerging force in the world, with the pursuit of equality in all aspects of life still a wobbly way off in the distance.

Back then, for myself and many other girls, Wonder Woman represented an embodiment of the strength we needed to forge many of the changes and advances we enjoy today. She was strong, intelligent, brave and confident. She had powers which gave her an impressive control over every situation that unfolded before her. She had bucket loads of attitude (plus an amazing costume) and like all good Super Hero tales, justice always prevailed in the end.

Try This No Bake Chocolate Crusted Lemon Cheesecake Recipe

Oh boy it's been an effort getting this original recipe live!

I'd had the intention of making this cheesecake for weeks, so I bought all the ingredients to get the job done. My kids were beyond excited about a delicious cheesecake for dessert. ...I was excited about cheesecake! (I am always excited about desserts at any time.)

Yet as soon as my back was turned, my thieving kiddos ate the essential biscuits I required for the base of this recipe, Over. And. Over. Again! Twenty-two packets of Chocolate Ripple biscuits later, and my new hiding spot for my 'especially delicious' baking essentials had finally remained undiscovered. Phew! I was successfully able to pull this one off.
