Editors’ picks – what we’re loving in June

Check out the best things we've found for the month ahead - from fab maternity sportswear to monthly craft set deliveries


Playmobil My Take Along Pet Clinic, £39.99

This month Emma’s gone animal mad (it must be all the talk of corgis!)…


“Kids will love the fact they can simply pack up and go with this set – whether that’s to their friend’s house or just in the garden.” Suitable from 4yrs+

Available from Playmobil


Sporty Bump Maternity fitness trousers, £29.50

The whole MFM team got the fitness bug after spotting these chic maternity sports trousers…

“If you’re doing some gentle exercise while pregnant, these specially designed fitness trousers are just what you need. With a roll-over waistband they can be worn to suit your bump. They’re so stylish you’ll want to wear them away from the gym, too.”

Available from Sporty Bump


LEGO Duplo Cinderella’s carriage, £19.99

It’s all about fairytales for Sophie, who wouldn’t mind a carriage of her own…

“Anything princess related gets my vote! Not only do you get to build the castle and carriage yourself, but there’s even a glass slipper brick to help re-create the traditional tale.” Suitable for 2-5yrs

Available from LEGO Duplo


Pure Cotton Winnie the Pooh Frill All-in-One, £12

As summer gets going, Tara’s looking out for baby brights…

“Winnie the Pooh, yellow, frills and bows – what isn’t to love? The poppy detail is a cool touch. Great that it’s pure cotton, too.” From newborn to 12 months.

Available from Marks & Spencer


Organic Golden Camellia Mother and Baby oil, £24.99

Emma’s been trying out this mother and baby oil and is rather hooked…

“This is such a luxurious feeling product, with so many uses. It’d be lovely and gentle on babies’ skin.”

Mattel Brave Doll and Horse, £29.99

MFM is eagerly awaiting the release of Disney/Pixar’s Brave and these dolls are on our must-have list already…

“Disney/Pixar’s latest heroine Merida packs a punch and this doll and horse set from Mattel will be the perfect way to re-create the fun at home.” Suitable from 3yrs+

Brave is in theatres nation-wide from 17th August 2012.

Available from all good toy retailers from July 6th


ToucanBox, £16.95 per month

Emma’s feeling crafty this month (and the next, and the next…)

“Set up an account with ToucanBox and your child will get a box of themed craft goodies delivered every month. There’s enough activities to keep kids going for the whole month plus extra activities like colouring sheets. Fab!”

Available from ToucanBox


Twisted Twee, Lolly T-shirt trilogy, £40

These funky tees have caught Sophie’s eye. If only they were for adults…

“These are so sweet, I love the quirkiness – and wearing them three days in a row is a fun idea. Perfect for sunny days.” Available in sizes 6-12 months up to 3-4yrs.

Little Grey Rabbit’s Noisy Night, £7.99

The MFM team fell in love with this traditional style rabbit pop-out book for its old-fashioned charm…

“This is a lovely modern take on Alison Uttley and Margaret Tempest’s original Little Grey Rabbit characters. The pop-out pictures make it an exciting read for children and adults. A perfect bedtime read.”

Pink Lining Wheelie Case Black Cab, £105

As summer approaches and we’re awash with all things British, MFM HQ spotted this beauty…

“Children tend to equal a lot of stuff, so this large wheelie case is a good size for mums. It’s not available until June 8th, so start hinting now!”
