The holidays are nearing an end, and we all have so much to do, so its the perfect time to be at home together and buy or rent a film to watch together as a family. Superhero fans will undoubtedly enjoy watching Inseperable best friends ‘Krypto‘ the super-dog (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) and Superman fight crime across Metropolis side-by side in the new Warner Bros. Pictures’ animated action adventure feature film “DC League of Super-Pets,” from director Jared Stern.
When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a bunch of shelter pack strays (Ace the hound [Kevin Hart], PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel) to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes.
George is now a massive superhero fan, plus give him small animals too and we are on for a winning combination. The heart warming spin of inseparable friends gives little ones a dream to look forward to making their bestest of friends in the coming weeks as some start school, plus add in some action and we just couldn’t pull him away! There’s plenty of fun and action to keep the whole family entertained, plus Kevin Harts ‘Ace’ et al; keeps the adults in tune too with the odd witty remark which goes by unnoticed by the kids. What great script writing!
You’ll recognise some other big names throughout the film too, including Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer, Natasha Lyonne, Diego Luna, Marc Maron, Thomas Middleditch, Ben Schwartz, & Keanu Reeves

Etta Loves make the most beautiful muslins, blankets and playmats that use science to support the development of our little ones vision, through scientifically scaled patterns. We share some amazing hacks directly from Etta Loves to help with day-to-day tasks promoting calm and intrigue from little ones.
Are car journeys not fun for you and little ones? My little one tends to love a snooze… but if yours doesn’t – Hang a sensory muslin over the backseat that baby faces for cooing car rides!
Do you have a tiny escapee at change time?Suspend one of these amazing prints (try the eye print drawn by Jen’s daughter Etta herself) in your baby’s eyeline for lots of staring and less squirming!
Need to encourage more tummy time? Lay a muslin across your chest whilst lying back. This will encourage little ones to lift their heads and practice on you! Move the muslin up to your shoulder during a feed to keep babies focused and awake whilst catching dribbles!
Finally… Are you longing for five minutes peace to enjoy your shower? Pop baby in a bouncer (or in your choice of seat or mat for when you shower) and hang your favourite Etta Loves muslin over the side of the bath or on a radiator (out of reach) for a lingering hot shower!

When you’re expecting – even before in some cases, walking through clothing stores, supermarkets or even shopping online; I’m sure that every single person has a browse, or maybe a glance over at the children’s section. In some cases out of envy – children seem to have so much more on offer these days, and they’re always so stylish with so many options too!
Now we love a lot of brands, and generally found there is a LOT of plain items for boys… or they’re joggers, not leggings and generally blue. Then BONDS Baby Australia (Sold here via Next, John Lewis, & Smooch Suits to name a few) lands in my inbox. Colourful, bright and beautiful kidswear, with prints that are wild and in most cases, equally unisex – and we must admit, we fell instantly in love!
