By | Giveaways | No Comments

Microscooters is one of our favourite scooter brands - we love them!

We have an AMAZING prize for you all on the blog today from the wonderful brand that is Microscooters. Everyone we know has had a scooter for their kids, but there really is nothing to compare with a Microscooter. Both my children have had them, and there is nothing to rival their sturdiness, flexibility and reliability.

Even better, they are now available for children from vertually as soon as they can walk, thanks to the product we are giving away, the 3 in 1 Mini Micro Deluxe. The wonderful thing about these scooters is that they grow with your child:

  • 12 months – they are a ride on,
  • 18 months – they transform into a toddler scooter, and
  • 2 years – if they are ready, then they transform into a microscooter ready for them to take on the scooting world!

What features does the 3 in 1 deluxe Microscooter have?

It has been well documented how important it is to keep our kids active, and there is no harm to starting off at an early age with them – a 3 in 1 scooter provides the ability to get your kids moving early, encouraging a very positivie attitude to exercise. It might even get you to and from the park a wee bit quicker as well ūüėČ

Over half of mums think mixed meat and veg sausages are healthier for their family

By | Polls | No Comments

We love a survey on Talk to Mums, almost as much as we love a good Sausage and Mash dinner. So, we thought, why not combine the two? We carried out a survey recently with nearly 1,500 mums to find out about their buying habits and thoughts on the humble sausage.

What do mums think of the humble sausage?

It would seem that we are a nation of sausage munchers, with over 1 in 3 of us buying sausages for the family at least once a week. Three quarters of us buy sausages to pop in the weekly shop every other week. The sausage seems to be a go to meal for families here in the UK. We certainly find it’s an easy choice after school to just chuck a couple of sizzlers in the pan. Most people are rather fond of them after all; with only 6% of you saying you don’t buy them because someone in the family doesn’t like eating them.

Over 30% of mums buy sausages for the family at Tescos, which is higher than at Asda, and Sainsbury’s, who are their nearest rivals. You are clearly loving your Tesco finest – right?

Perhaps this is no surprise, given that over half of you think that sausages combining meat and vegetables are a more healthy option for kids. Nearly a quarter of mums are a little worried about how much meat their family is eating, therefore a sausage that gives more than just meat, is likely to entice. In addition, a third of mums think these types of combined sausages are going to be more tasty too.

Interestingly, over a quarter of mums would definitely buy a sausage with both meat and vegetables in for their family, with over 50% rather loving the idea of a smoky chipotle pork and sweet potato sausage in particular. So come on – lets get one in the shops to add to our plates, with our mash and peas ūüėÄ

We are a nation of sausage lovers, and we buy from Tesco!

So what is YOUR favourite sausage?

 

Over a third of Mums prefer Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream for the family

By | Polls | No Comments

We have got the results in for our Ice Cream mum survey, and they make very interesting reading for the top Ice Cream brands in the country.

Which is mums favourite brand of ice cream to buy for the family?

Ben & Jerry’s¬†score very favourably with families, with over a third of mums saying that this brand is¬†their go to Ice Cream for the family freezer. Mums are picking their favourite brand not based on value, but the range of flavours that are on offer.

Now we all know that this makes sense, particularly if you happen to have a picky toddler that has a rather big say in what gets put into your shopping trolley as you wonder around Tesco! ūüėČ

Over a third of mums say Ben & Jerrys is their favourite ice cream!Confirming that reputation and flavour are the key factors when mums make those Ice Cream buying decisions, over 85% of them are buying branded ice creams rather than Supermarket Own products.

Creaminess is another major factor in the choices that mums make for their family, with over 27% of them saying that the creamy nature of their ice cream was the main reason they pick the brand they do.

Personally, if its got a funky name, its going into my trolley, but that’s just me.

Karamel Sutra anyone?

We want to hear from YOU this week!

We’d love to know¬†what new products you have come across that you loved so much you would recommend to your mum friends. So come on and help us out by answering this survey.

It’s only a couple of questions, and then you will be¬†in with a chance of winning ¬£10 from Toys R’ Us.

It doesn’t matter what the product is, but just to jog your memory, it could be:

  • A fantastic new chocolate pudding which made you feel like you were eating out, even though you weren’t,
  • An amazing eye shadow that made you knock them dead even though you were up all night with then kids,
  • A perfect new toy that kept the baby entertained so you could have a sneaky bag of crisps, or
  • A new snack you discovered that kept the hunger at bay when you were travelling home from work on the train back to the family.

Whatever it is, we’d love to hear the product name, and why you liked it so much if you can. That way, we know who we should be approaching to get all our mums¬†talking¬†about them.

You never know, we might even get some of you some free products to sample too!

Why not share this survey, so we get more ideas for new products, AND more mums to help us talk about them as well?
