The other great news is The Stork Nest is the cheapest place to buy your Elf on the Shelf!

Our little elf is my FAVOURITE tradition in the lead up to Christmas! The best part is this Christmas phenomenon works and you will have a barrel of laughs along the way!

Basically your little Elf arrives and you name him, you read the adorable story together and basically Elfie keeps an eye on the kids behavior and reports directly back to Santa each night if the kids have been naughty or nice and trust me this works better than any reward chart, stickers, bribes or threats!!! And I promise Elf on a Shelf will become your best friend come the start of December with overtired, bored and grumpy kids! He is our 4th term lifesaver!

The hardest part is deciding what antics your little Elf gets up to while the kids are sleeping and you can click here to get some awesome ideas! You will have so much fun with your elf and your kids will love tearing around in the morning to find him and see what he has been up to!

Check out what these naughty elves have been up too! Be sure to checkout our Facebook for more elf ideas too!


In other unrelated Elf news how adorbs are these Elf tights! Available in size 0-6 months!


Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? Is your Elf naughty or nice? Don’t you wish there was a Birthday Elf, a Get Ready for School Elf and a Sleep In On The Weekend Elf??

Is it safe to use a mobile phone, ipad or laptop during pregnancy?

OCT (6)

Radiation emitted from our mobile phones, tablets and laptops whilst pregnant is a huge concern for expecting mothers, and as these devises are a relatively new invention we cannot be sure of their long term effects

To address this concern, The Stork Nest is now retailing Belly Armor – a range of maternity clothing basics that are lined with RadiaShield® fabric, a highly conductive silver textile with the same shielding properties as a 1/4-inch thick sheet of aluminum. It shields by neutralizing incoming electromagnetic waves, cancelling out the ambient radiation and reducing your exposure with 99.9% effectiveness!

With Belly Armor’s stylish maternity wear , you can choose from a simple Belly Band, a Camisole with built in shelf bra -comfortable for everyday wear and there is even a Rouched Maternity Tee which will soon become one of your favourite maternity t-shirts!

You can rest easy knowing that everyday you are protecting your baby from harmful radiation while wearing Belly Armor!

Toddler learning to self-feed? You NEED this spoon!


Avoid the frustration and mess at mealtimes! Thanks to its clever rotating handle the Beaba 360 Spoon always remains horizontal regardless of the handle’s position. It helps your toddler to learn to feed themselves properly and prevents food from being split! When your child is older the handle can be locked into position!

How neat is that!!

Prince Lionheart’s 2-1 Diaper Depot Review

lucy 6

This is a product that will make every parent’s life with baby much easier

Keeping my baby’s changing area tidy was always a problem for me as I just had all the products strewn about. With the Diaper Depot they are now nearly stored and I have everything I need within arms reach (which is great when you have a wriggly baby to keep hold of!)


You can also organise this product into many different configurations and shapes. Making it as big,small,long or tall as you like to fit the space you have. Brilliant!
