Competition: Win Outdoor Lawn Games from House of Fraser

With Summer officially here, now is the time to get outdoors as much as possible.  Take advantage of the free vitamin D and the opportunity to just sit back, relax and watch the kids play.  Easier said than done right 😉

What everyone needs is a few nifty products that can be stored all year around and can be used at prime times such as right now.


Being able to whip something out of the garage or shed, dust it down and use it there and then is like gold for a parent.  And the outdoor toys range from House of Fraser are ideal.


With a variety of products to choose from there will no doubt be something suitable for the child that needs occupying in your home.

The croquet set and boules set from the range immediately caught my eye, because they’re compact, easy to store and use.  Plus I can always pack them into the car if we go further afield without them taking up much room.


Being made of plastic means they’re light and they are also durable- an added bonus when toys really have to last for many years.


I happen to have another croquet set and a boules set to give away to one lucky reader of The London Mum.  All you have to do is enter the rafflecopter below to be in it to win it!

    • Babies are so funny aren’t they, I turned around yesterday and W was laughing at something that was so not funny at all!
