Articles about the amazing Acornkids products.

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles!

I think that bubble baths are just a natural part of any kid’s childhood… at least, in my home it DEFINITELY is! This is why adding a bubble bath to our Bath Fun range was just a no-brainer. But we wanted something a little more special, which is why we chose Surf’s Up.

My kids loved the Surf’s Up bubble bath more than others because of the thousands of little sequins of all colours, shapes, and sizes that floated around their baths! What child doesn’t want to bath with a whole lot of shiny whales and seahorses?

I loved it because you only need two caps per bath, but (more importantly) because it was the perfect time for my kids to polish up on those tricky fine motor skills as they chased around the bath trying to collect as many sequins as possible. If both of my little ones were in the bath at the same time, we’d have a competition for who can collect the most.

Just a useful tip; those sequins can be REALLY hard to catch… especially in a full bath. So, to make it easier and less frustrating, I’d scoop up some water and let my kids fish them out of my hands.  

But the fun didn’t stop there! After every bath, we’d collect the sequins and put them in a jar. Then, during card making time, we bring out the jar and use them to make fun and beautiful cards for our friends’ birthdays.

I really think that you’ll love this product. So, to buy a set of Blue, Red, Yellow and Pink Surfs Up at a special 10% discount, click here https://goo.gl/Tgj3a6  to buy it online now! Just as a side note, bubbles last longer if you’re using soap-free options like our Gloop or Kaleidofoam. Also, to add an extra bit of fun, why not have colourful bubbles by sprinkling some Angle Powder over them? My kids LOVED that! 


Grab all three of these products with your next Surf’s Up order to make the ultimate fun bath experience! Just go to our Bath Fun section and add them to your order by clicking https://goo.gl/KltFMt for Angel Powder, https://goo.gl/N2n4UX for Gloop and https://goo.gl/u4GMN8 for our wonderful Kaleidofoam!

Happy Shopping!

Don’t be afraid of a little mess… read this to find out why!

In my home, we believe in fun. We believe in creativity. And we definitely believe in fun and creative mess-making. I know that the last part of our ‘belief system’ might send most moms into a flat panic, but hear me out for a second.

Did you know that research has shown that a creative child with an average IQ performs better at school than a child with a high IQ but with no creativity. I actually only found this out recently but it makes complete sense – creativity teaches our kids to use their imaginations and to think out of the box.

Did you also know that allowing our kids to be completely and uninhabitably expressive while having FUN, is one of the best ways to encourage them to build and flex their creativity muscles. And what better fun, creative and expressive mess-making activity than dipping your fingers into a gooey pot of finger paint and creating a masterpiece of your own?

This is why my kids and I just love the Funky Finger Paints in our Acornkids range. These blue, green, yellow and red pots have given us hours of fun that I know is encouraging my kids to be as creative as possible. They love the texture of squelching it between their fingers and have come up with the most beautiful pictures over the years.

It’s been great to see how their pictures have become more detailed and defined as their confidence in their own creativity and their fine motor skills have grown over the years.

To encourage your kids build their own creativity skills through Funky Finger Paints, just follow this link right now to get all four colours in a set: https://goo.gl/msq9Uc

Now here’s the real trick… to avoid mess as much as possible, lay out an old sheet and have you kids put an apron on. Then once the messy fun is over, just hang up the painting, fold up the sheet and aprons and plonk your kids straight into a bath and let the clean fun start with our Bath Fun range of products….Happy Painting!

Allover fun and top-to-toe washing with Gloop…

In my family, bath time has never been a hassle. Thanks to my healthy stock of Acornkids Bath Time products, the only slight concern is which one to use on which day!



Gloop has always been the squishiest, funkiest bath time treat for my kids. They have always loved the bright colours, the fresh fruity flavours and the fun gloopy texture. I love it because it’s an all-over cleansing gel that is not only paraben free, but also soap free and a perfect replacement for soap and shampoo for my whole family! It’s very economical, you only need to use a little, and its versatile, I have often used it as a foam bath, as it makes a perfect bath full of bubbles. Soap, Shampoo, Conditioner and bubbles…all in one……makes it a great travel product!

Available in red, blue, yellow, pink and green, each bottle of Gloop is crammed with hydrolysed wheat protein complex that really nourishes my kids’ hair, jojoba seed oil that moisturises their skin beautifully, and aloe ferox leaf extract that rejuvenates their skin after a long day of activities.

Try our Green Gloop, as a detangling shampoo to wash your little one’s hair. Enriched with  Sea Minerals and  Seaweed Extracts to stimulate the scalp and enhance hair condition. Click on this link,  Green Gloop, to have it delivered to your door and get a special 30% discount (valued until 26 April)

The Miracles of Massage Oil

When I first starting looking into massage oils to add to our ranges, most of my friends and colleagues assumed it was for the hard working mommies to have a little relaxation and pampering time. And, don’t get me wrong, this is definitely still part of the plan and you absolutely deserve it! But really, your babies can benefit massively from regular massage with the right oils, which is why we just had to add the Lavender and the Eucalyptus Massage Oil to our ranges.

Massage is not only a wonderful opportunity for you to bond with your baby, but it also really helps them to develop and grow as they enjoy your loving and gentle touch while you softly massage the oils into their skin.  

The lavender and chamomile in the Lavender Massage Oil have beautifully calming and relaxing properties. This mild blend of essential oils soothes your baby into a gentle sleep and can be used from the day that they are born. It’s a great way to end off your night time routine.

To add Lavendar Massage Oil to your next order, just click here: Lavender Massage Oil

I recommend that you start using the Massage Oil once your baby is at least two months old. Not only do these gentle ingredients and the added touch of mothering love relax your baby for a good night’s sleep (and for you in that case), but the Eucalyptus also gently provides comfort for colds and tight chests.To add Eucalyptus Massage Oil to your next order, just click here: Eucalyptus Oil

Gentle Face Cream for every day and everyone.

As a working and loving mum, I do my level best to make sure that my whole family has a healthy diet packed with lots of vitamins that are not only great for them health-wise, but also ensure that they have glowing, healthy skin. The thing is, you can eat everything that you should eat for a healthy skin, but the daily contact with sunlight and air pollution means that we actually need a little help with an extra dose of antioxidant-boosting Vitamins C & E at the very least. 


This is exactly why I love the Acornkids Gentle Day Cream: not only is it packed with Vitamins C & E, but the Shea and Cocoa Butters give it a luxuriously soft, velvety feel that really rehydrate and nourish your skin (which is awesome for the dry winter months coming up!) The cucumber extracts mean that it soothes my kids’ skin if they’re a little sunburnt and is great for kids with excema. What’s even better is that my whole family can use it every day. So if we’re going on a family holiday where space is an issue, I just pop one cream into my handbag for the whole family to use!

I really do recommend this cream as an everyday moisturiser for your whole family, I know that my kids love it! So to have it delivered right to your door, just click this link http://goo.gl/KDo1na to order it right now and receive your 15% discount (valid 23/3 – 29/3)

PS, I’ve found that the Gentle Day Cream works a lot better if your face if clean after using something like the Acornkids Gentle Face Wash. So if you’d like to pop that into your cart with your Cream, just click here http://goo.gl/x0uylQ

Push it – Pull it – Shape it!

Considering that every parent with small kids is a huge lover of play dough, the decision to add our own Push ‘n Pull Putty to our special Acornkids range was easy. (Especially considering that I was one of those parents at the time!)



This non-toxic malleable dough has given my kids hours of entertainment over the years. My best was that I could just pop a tub or two into my handbag and then bring them out at a restaurant or a friend’s house to let my kids entertain themselves. Only a mom can understand the true pleasure of something like this!

I really love (and I think that most mom’s will agree) that Push ‘n Pull Putty gives my kids so much more than just something to entertain themselves while I run my errands. It taught them about colour awareness and mixing as they mushed the 8-coloured squishy dough together through their fingers. I also saw a huge improvement in their fine motor and creativity skills as each masterpiece became more and more defined with practice. If something didn’t work out as planned, they would just mush it together again and start from scratch. This was a really great confidence booster that allowed my kids to really push their creativity and skill as they knew that it didn’t have to be permanent. Having said that, the ones that they are really proud of were photographed so that we can keep them forever.

Push ‘n Pull Putty is available in product sets of our Primary and Funky Colour sets, or all 8 colours in one pack! They are great gifts for friends or, like I did, just to have on hand if the boredom kicks in! Even better, you can use the left over cookie cutters from your Soap Putty and cut out shapes with your kids. To order yours today and get your special 10% discount (valid 16/03 -21/3), please follow this link to buy online http://goo.gl/wn3lZ4 

NB: The shape cutters you collect when buying our Soap Putty are also perfect to use with the Push n Pully Putty.
