*This is a collaborative post

It’s that time of year when you might be looking for a little extra cash after the big expense of Christmas but also, you may have received Christmas presents that you don’t need and among them gift cards that you don’t think you will ever use. So why not sell them with Zapper?

Making Money: Sell Unwanted Gift Cards and Declutter with Zapper

I have been using Zapper for years to sell our old books, DVDs and computer games but now they have added gift cards to their service, meaning that you can simply swap the dead weight of a gift card you will never use for cash that you can then spend on anything you need – even groceries, rent or utility bills.

Give your Children a Library at their Fingertips with eBookadabra

*This is a collaborative post

LP and Little Man have always had a love of reading. We have read with them daily since they were tiny and now that LP is learning to read she will often read books to us, at bedtime, in the car or whenever she has the urge to read.

But, even with a house full of books, LP is always looking for more to read. She has a thirst for books that even regular trips to the library can’t fix and when we go away for weekends she seems to want to take her whole bookshelf with her.

So when eBookadabra got in contact and asked if we’d like to review their app it looked like the perfect thing to keep LP and Little Man happy where books are concerned. eBookadabra contains hundreds of books in one app, making sure that the children always have something new to read.

Keeping the Kids Safe Online with Kidslox

*This is a collaborative post

A few weeks ago we introduced you to Kidslox, a parental control and screen time management app. Since then LP and Little Man have been using their tablets with Kidslox installed, enabling Hubby and I to control pretty much every aspect of their multimedia life.

Keeping the Kids Safe Online with Kidslox

Once installed, Kidslox lets us manage all the devices in our household – both on Android and iOS. We can even manage the devices remotely from another device. This is great for changing the settings on the children’s tablets whilst they’re in use or whenever we think to change something.

Little Man Loves the New Thomas & Friends Read & Play App

*This is a collaborative post

Little Man absolutely loves Thomas the Tank Engine and he has been obsessed with all things Thomas & Friends for the last couple of years – our Christmas this year is pretty much sponsored by Thomas! But, it can be easy to get sucked into Thomas toys that have no real educational benefit so when we were asked to test out the new Thomas & Friends Read & Play App I hoped it would help Little Man to learn whilst he plays.

The Thomas & Friends Read & Play App is perfect for any child who likes using a tablet or smartphone and who has even the smallest interest in Thomas. The app plays fun music from the show in the background which draws you instantly into the app and has so much to do once inside that any child will love to give it a try.
