A World Inside A Book: Gruffalos, Dragons & Other Creatures

The Gruffalo, Stick Man, The Highway Rat, Zog, The Smartest Giant in Town, The Snail and the Whale – just some of the many instantly recognisable characters created by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler over the years. They’ve just arrived at the fantastic Discover Children’s Story Centre in Stratford, so you can go along and meet them all. We already did just that, and it’s so brilliant that we can’t wait to go back again…

Olympic Park – visiting with a baby (Part 2)

You may recall that we first visited the Olympic Park in February (click here) to attend a test event at the Velodrome.  This time, we didn’t attend an Olympic event, but had tickets to spend the day visiting the Olympic Park itself.  It’s amazing how much work has been done since February to convert what was still mostly a building site back then into the final park.  The result is overwhelmingly impressive, although there are a few areas where there’s room for improvement.  Here’s how we rated our experience…

Olympic Park: visiting with a baby?

If you’re one of the lucky few who secured tickets for the London Olympics this summer, and you’re planning to take your baby along, here’s our take on visiting the Olympic Park. OK, so the park’s not officially open (or even finished) yet, but we managed to get hold of some tickets for the cycling test event at the brand new Olympic Velodrome this weekend and thought we’d share our experience of the facilities so far.

Westfield Stratford City (when only retail therapy will do)

Posted on Wednesday, 1 February, 2012 in Rainy day, Shopping | 1 comment

It’s all well and good setting out on cultural and/or educational babydaytrips, but sometimes only a spot of retail therapy will do.  On those cold winter days where a trip to your high street would mean constantly adding and removing layers as you go in and out of shops, a shopping mall is the perfect solution.  And so we ended up at Westfield Stratford City…
