Players will then score points if they can guess the artist, the song title and the playlist category.

The books follow four elementary school students as they use their math skills to solve problems, get to the bottom of tricky mysteries, and to help their friends.

For those who want to know a little more about the math, each book includes an appendix which delves into the math in a little more detail. There are also study guides developed for each book. With the emphasis on STEM in classrooms around the country, The Math Kids is a great series for getting kids interested in mathematics, the often overlooked “M” in STEM.

The Prime-Time Burglars (book 1) was named one of the best books of 2018 and A Sequence of Events (book 2) one of the best books of 2019. The review said “For any kid who loves math, buy this book. And for any kid who doesn’t? Buy it to show them math is fun!”

In 1966, the parents of Kevin Piece had their hands full during the chaotic holiday season, with 5 kids asking, “How many more days?” over and over.

Their solution? A family tradition that they have kept for nearly 50 years. A handmade Santa doll became their countdown calendar. With items of clothing strung across the fireplace mantel, every evening after dinner, one of the kids would take a turn dressing Santa. One night it might be a sock, a belt or his jacket. The number of items left told them exactly how many more days until Santa visited their house. The tradition continued, even after they all grew up and moved out. Every December, Santa waited for them in his sleigh by the fireplace, and every December when they visited, they continued to take turns getting him dressed. When the grandkids arrived, they became part of the family tradition. In 2017, Kevin made one for his own family, and once he saw him next to the fireplace and the smiles of joy and wonder on his daughters’ faces, he knew it was time to share this wonderful tradition with the rest of the world. Staying true to his parents’ vision, Santa’s friendly spirit shines through in this new design. Give him a hug and help him get ready for the big day! He’ll appreciate it and your family will too.

The Wriggler portable changing mat is aiming to ease the stress of nappy changing battles and make changing time calmer, quicker and less frustrating.

The Wriggler is the first portable changing mat designed specifically for babies who wriggle during nappy changing. Its innovative kneepad design gently hugs the child and anchors the mat in place, preventing flipping and rolling and freeing up the parent’s hands for fast and easy changing.

“Once babies learn to roll and crawl, changing time can become a stressful battle for parents and their little ones,” explains co-creator Aileen McCauley. “It’s not surprising then that up to 40% of parents report feelings of stress and frustration during nappy changing. We created The Wriggler when we experienced the problem with our little ones and thankfully changing time went back to the calm, stress-free time it had once been.”
The Wriggler is a patent pending product which has been rigorously tested to meet the most stringent baby safety standards in the US and Europe. The premium quality materials are BPA, phthalate, lead and PVC free. It is fully wipeable so messes can be wiped clean in seconds. For newborns and toddlers who don’t wriggle it also converts to a traditional mat so it’s the only mat needed from birth until potty training. Its portable and durable design, which folds up neatly for handbags or changing bags, allows it to be used at home or out and about.
The Wriggler has received multiple awards from prestigious parenting review sites, such as MadeForMums and BizzieBaby in the UK and BabyMaternity Magazine’s Top Choice Award in the USA . “Parents have called it a ‘miracle mat’ and their ‘sanity saver’,” says James McCauley, co-creator of The Wriggler. “Changing time is a big part of every day for babies and toddlers with the average baby needing to be changed 6 times a day or 6,500 times until toilet training. We’re delighted to make life just a little easier for parents and be able to bring such a positive change to their busy days.”

The Wriggler is available at and its RRP is €39.99 / £35.99 (incl shipping)

Pluxty Ltd is a baby product company founded by husband and wife and parents of two children, James and Aileen McCauley. They wanted to offer smart solutions to common problems parents encounter with the aim of making life just a little bit easier and allowing parents to get back to the fun stuff of seeing the world through the eyes of a toddler. Their first product is The Wriggler – the portable changing mat that ends wriggly nappy changes for good.

Introducing Little Sport Star
Sporty toys for a fit and healthy baby


Little Sport Star is a trusted and award-winning baby toy brand inspired to bring families together through their love of sport. With a range of toys, blankets and play mats inspired by football, tennis, basketball and golf, the Little Sport Star products provide both physical and mental stimulation to babies from a young age, and focuses on the aspirations of the parents to raise a fit and healthy baby, as well as passing on their love of sports.

The first year of a baby’s life is vital for learning, development and growth. Founder of Little Sport Star, Nick Farnsworth, identified millennial parents were finding it challenging to steer their children away from screens and introduce them to physical, outdoor activities at an early age. Nick championed this with the launch of Little Sport Star in 2012 where he began developing a range of sports-inspired toys to help babies hit their early development milestones.

Little Sport Star not only offer fun and engaging toys, but also provide babies with skills such as confidence and resilience which they will hold on to later in life. One of the most stimulating activities for children is sport; through sport you develop coordination, balance and core strength, something reflected across the Little Sport Star range.

Founder of Little Sport Star, Nick Farnsworth, comments: “Sports is an international language and a way of bringing people together, from day one and onwards. And although we can’t predict a little one’s future tastes, it is a decent bet that sports will play a small role at some point in their life. I personally felt that baby toys were too pink, fluffy and one-dimensional.”

Ideal gifts for birthdays, baby showers and sports fans, and the Little Sport Star range includes:

Baby Tennis Racket (RRP £15.00)

The baby tennis racket is perfect for cuddling with as well as stimulating the baby’s senses with a rattle and squeaker incorporated in the design.

When babies start to develop a little more strength, they can start to swing it and become familiar with the motion of a tennis racket.

Baby Golf Club (RRP £15.00)

The first soft golf club for babies, the toy was inspired to help babies develop their hand-eye coordination, enjoy the swinging action of a golf club and associate with bright vibrant colours.

With the additional features of a golf ball attached to the club, a squeaker in the handle and a rattle in the ball, these enhance the overall experience where babies associate noise and colours with the movement of a golf club.

Baby Football Activity Gym and Play Mat (RRP £54.99)

The world’s first football activity gym, the award-winning Baby Football Activity Gym and Play Mat has been designed to develop the baby’s tummy muscles and overall movement.

Featuring a hanging football, two cuddly players, mirrors and cushioned sides to form a football pitch, babies can kick, crawl and touch the sensors around the gym, strengthening their upper body and encouraging them to sit up and explore their surroundings.

Baby Football Comfort Blanket (RRP £11.99)

Ideal as a gift to families who are passionate about football, the Baby Football Security Blanket is the perfect comforter for babies with its soft texture and cute character incorporated in the design. It is also a bestselling product in the US. Complimenting the security blanket is Freddy the Teddy (RRP £14.99) ideal for children under one years. Designed to include teethers to stimulate babies, the toy also makes a cheer when pressed, associating sounds with sports.

A father of two young children himself, Nick says: “We make it really simple for parents to give their baby the best start in life. Our toys need no explanation; when babies receive our toys, they will probably start cuddling the toy but as they grow older, they will start to interact with them by kicking the ball or swinging the racket. Parents love the idea of seeing their newborn already sharing their love of sport and have already planted the idea that sports is fun.”

Kevin The Carrot earns his place at the Museum of Brands in London
He is expected to attract thousands of visitors in December
The Museum founder warns fans to visit early, as once he’s gone, he’s gone

Brits have grown to love him and the UK’s favourite cuddly carrot has now earned himself a place in London’s most memorable Museum.

Aldi’s Christmas star, Kevin the Carrot, was unveiled at the Museum of Brands this morning and he will remain on display throughout December.

The Kevin exhibit takes centre stage among more than 12,000 products, posters, toys and games that make up the Museum’s extraordinary collection. Thousands of fans are expected to visit to see him alongside other famous faces including Mickey Mouse, Felix the Cat, Paddington Bear and Gordon the Gopher.

He’ll begin his stay at the Museum in the great hall, before making his way to the ‘Time Tunnel’, which features the world’s most renowned brands and toys from the Victorian era to today.

The nation was first introduced to Kevin the Carrot in 2016, when he made his debut appearance on Aldi’s Christmas TV advert. Since then, his popularity has soared and last year he even trended on Twitter as demand for the toy outstripped supply.

Visitors can see Kevin at the Museum in Notting Hill only until New Year’s Eve, but the Museum founder warns once he’s gone, he’s gone.

Robert Opie, Founder of the Museum of Brands, said:“Considering he only came to life in 2016, Kevin the Carrot has had quite a meteoric rise and his display highlights how characters with strong personalities can create a true bond with the public. He’s become quite a celebrity in his own right.

At just three years old, Kevin is one of the youngest of toys on display at the Museum of Brands. We know the demand for Kevin toys is incredibly high. We are excited to have him here with us.”

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK comments: “Kevin has his own base of superfans, and we’re absolutely delighted that they’ll now be able to visit him in this wonderful setting.

Last year, Kevin the Carrot toys flew off the shelves and over two thirds sold within 24 hours of going on sale. We are thrilled that this year, those who don’t manage to get their hands on one of the toys will no longer have to miss out. Kevin is joining an illustrious list of toys on display at the Museum. We’re all really proud of him.”

Throughout the month of December, fans can visit Kevin at the Museum of Brands, 111-117 Lancaster Road, Notting Hill in London. The Museum is closed on December 24, 25 and 26.
