I have to say I’m now really excited for Christmas, the tree is decorated, we’ve been to Emmy’s School Nativity and the parties are planned for next week. Most of the presents are hidden away – they just need wrapping and putting under the tree on Christmas Eve.

Moochies Smart Phone Watch – £79.99
Moochies are phones for kids which are worn exactly like a watch. They come in four colours (Black, Orange, Pink and Blue), a Moochie is a durable phone and watch combination which allows two-way communication between parents and children.
This watch works alongside the free Moochies app which is downloaded to the parents phone, it enables parents to be in touch with their children at all times of the day, wherever they are – obviously this wont be used during school times but could be useful, if they want to pop to a friends after school or have after school clubs (or even dreaded detention!). We have used this when we have been on BIG days out – for example trips to London. While my children are too young to have their own phone, and I definitely wouldn’t allow it just yet, it has been very good for a little reassurance and added peace of mind should they wander off out of site or get separated from us.
It works with a sim card, just like a mobile phone – Moochies watches allow children to ring two pre-set phone numbers (We have mine and Paul’s set to this), and it also allows up to 20 people to ring them – this isn’t a feature I’ve set up just yet as it isn’t needed for children as young as mine but the reassurance is only numbers pre-approved by the parents are able to call.
It features a SOS button, which once pressed alerts the app holder (Paul and I) that the child is in trouble and it sends a 15 second recording of all the sounds around the child straight to the parent’s phone so they can hear what is happening. The watch is also GPS trackable, which means the app holder (parents) can see where their child is at any time when they are wearing this watch – this isn’t a feature I can see myself using much as you do need to be able to trust your children and teach them boundaries but it is rather nice to know the feature is there should you lose them in a busy place for example.
You can set pre-determined ‘safe zones’ which means if your child ventures out of that set zone you are alerted to this.
Just like a normal watch it displays the time in digital form.
