Don't Throw Your Kids In The Deep End Of Finances


How do you handle money issues with your kids? 
Do you give them responsibilities with their own money. Or, do you provide them with everything and one day, chuck them in the deep end of financial independence. 

It seems almost logical to suggest the best way is to start them off early and let their independence grow. So, what steps should you be taking? 
 Pocket Money There are plenty of parents who disregard the idea of pocket money. 

Oh, they’re just going to spend it on silly things. But that is that is essentially the point. Eventually, they’ll stop spending small amounts on silly, meaningless, cheap items and save for something they really want. 

Essentially, by giving your child pocket money, you can show them the importance of budgeting and saving at a very early age. Independence You also want to think about giving your children a little independence with any money they save. If they want to buy something you know is a waste of money, consider letting them purchase it anyway. 

Let them learn from their own mistakes rather than protecting them. Again, it’s a learning curve about how they use their finances. Proper Savings Finally, you might want to think about setting them up with their own bank account. 
Doing this, they’ll feel like you trust them and will take pride in their independence. Thus they will not spend frivolously and that’s exactly what you want.

Panda & Ping


Comfort For Little Ones Peace Of Mind For Parents




As any parent who is lacking it knows; sleep matters. And when it comes to sleep comfort is important, after all with the recommended amount of sleep for children up to six years of age being twelve hours a night, our children spend a long time in their beds. We should therefore take as much, if not more, care about what they wear when they sleep as we do about what they wear during the day. 

Panda and Ping is a unique British children's brand. 
Created in 2015 by Pippa Millington, a mum who knows what it's like to try and find beautiful sleepwear and bedding for her children; their exquisite collection not only looks fabulous, but feels fantastic too.


Made using 100 percent OEKO Tex cotton jersey every product in their range ensures a soft, snuggly bedtime; phalite free comfort for little ones and peace of mind for parents. With all products being ecologically sourced from British manufacturers, customers can be sure of high quality ethically sourced and produced goods. 

Matching Sleepwear From 3 Months To Nine Years

When a baby comes along it's easy for older children to feel left out of the process. Panda and Ping's matching sleepwear provides the perfect solution. With fun vibrant prints in both baby rompers (sizes ranging from 3-24 months) and pyjamas (sizes ranging from 2-9 years) they are one of very few UK companies that make clothes to enable big brothers and sisters to twin with their new sibling.
What makes the range even more special though is that Pippa has really thought about how the needs of babies differ from those of older children, and ensured that they are met. Panda and Ping's rompers have nickel free poppers, an envelope neck, perfect for middle of the night changes, and are footless, making them much more suitable for crawling babies than traditional sleepsuits.


Beautiful Bed Linen

From beautiful single duvet covers with matching pillow cases, to fitted sheets for both beds and cot beds, Panda and Ping's bedding range will have children leaping into bed. Adorned with fun, colourful prints they can't fail to make bedtime fun for both children and their parents alike.
