Autism and Sensory Play – Zimpli Kids to the Rescue!!

I don’t know about your children, but my 6-year-old, Monty LOVES watching You Tube – particularly other children playing games or with toys.

The Dreaded #FOMO……..

Thanks to Merlin’s Magic Wand we got tickets for Legoland and planned to go in half term (yes, yes, I know, not sure what I was thinking here…………) So, on Friday morning we set off……full of enthusiasm and smugness that we had left late enough to miss all the horrific traffic on the M25.  Here …

‘Tis The Season To Be Jolly? Not For Some……

The Christmas season is upon us!  Everywhere you turn there are lights, decorations on the shelves, Cliff Richard crooning ‘Mistletoe and Wine’ in every shop you go to – and its only November. Whilst for many children and adults, Christmas is a hugely exciting and magical time.  The thought of decorating the tree and eagerly …
