As a mom, I am always looking for good-quality wooden toys for Hamish.
One of the companies that ticks all my boxes when it comes to good quality wood products is Pips & Moo
Pips & Moo are a family business, priding themselves not only on the quality of their delightful products but also that they handle every detail of production from painting to packaging and even delivery. I witnessed this first hand when placing my order and I received an email about the colour of the blocks that I had ordered.
While mom and dad sort the manufacturing of the products, the children Pips and Moo, put the products to the ultimate kiddy test, ensuring that each product is designed with fun and durability in mind.
I love wooden toys and have featured many over the years but my main reasons for loving a wooden toy is because:
So why order from Pips & Moo when there are other wooden toy companies?
One of the features that stands out immediately is the quality of Pips & Moo products. The items are made to last, be re-used, and passed on. Using only quality wood, they have designed products that move beyond the mindset of instant gratification to one that rather:
I have personally ordered a few items from Pips & Moo not only for the great quality but also because they offer an overall amazing online shopping experience.
The website is inviting and user-friendly and it is easy to place an order. Once your order is placed you will receive an email confirmation and should there be a problem with your order the owners personally email you to confirm a change in colour, etc.
Most payment methods are accepted and shipping is safe and really quick.
I love the wide variety of products they manufacture and you can purchase:
On my last order, I used a voucher and it was clear where I needed to enter the voucher code and my sale was approved instantaneously. I often struggle on other sites when using a voucher code.
Best of all Pips & Moo offers free shipping so you can purchase a little extra.

Day two was hosted by DMK, which specializes in paramedical for pre- and post-operative treatments using ‘popular’ advance re-surfacing skin revision protocols for optimum results. Guests were treated to the Enzyme Therapy Signature treatment that activates the skin’s own natural enzymatic activity.
The last skin week session was hosted by Environ. Guests in attendance received the Environ cool peel facial which is a safe non-invasive skin peeling system that helps refine, revive and brighten skin, as well as the dual electro sonic DF facial which stimulates the skin to deliver significantly more essential nutrients, to where the skin need them most.
At the end of each event day, guests received specialized skin care products that were used on them during their skin treatments, with step-by-step guidance of how to use the products at home to maintain healthy skin and a GLOW!
“Taking our guests on their skin journey is a core focus for Sorbet as we want to assist people in reaching their skincare goals. Our facials are designed for all skin types and needs and our expert therapists consult with our guests before deciding on the ideal regime. At Sorbet we notice that achieving glowing and blemish free skin is a real challenge, and many people are unaware that their everyday habits contribute to the unhealthy skin. Some of the most common mistakes people make with their skin is not using sunscreen, having no skincare routine, using too much exfoliation, sleeping with makeup on or not cleansing and drinking enough water. Experts from each brand explained to our guests and provided key tips for a glowing and healthy skin,” said Candice Thurston, Marketing Executive, Sorbet Group.

The Link 2 includes InstaxAIR augmented reality effect, allowing users to ‘draw’ images on their prints using the app.
Fujifilm South Africa is proud to announce the latest in the Link range of portable printers – the Instax mini Link 2. The Link 2 follows in the footsteps of 2019’s highly successful Mini Link, offering on-the-spot printing of smartphone photos.
Compact, lightweight and finished with a tonal, striped texture, the Link 2 transfers an image from the user’s smartphone to commence printing in about 15 seconds. It also supports continuous printing and is capable of printing about 100 Instax prints per charge seamlessly via Bluetooth.
Draw on prints using unique InstaxAIR
Making use of card-size Instax Mini film, the Link 2 offers a variety of unique functions to ensure photo printing is a social occasion, being the first in the Instax series to feature InstaxAiR.
This augmented reality (AR) effect works through the dedicated Link 2 app and allows users of the Mini Link 2 to add graphics to their prints, including bubbles, petals, neon, spray paint or a glitter look.
By simply holding the Mini Link 2 printer, pressing the feature button on top, and aiming the side LED to draw in the air, what is drawn will then appear on the print preview in-app.
Once the user is happy with the look, the graphics will appear on the print itself when printed with the Mini Link 2. Users of the InstaxAiR feature can even record a video of the drawing being made and share the moment as a printable QR code that appears on the print – all through the app. The QR code can be scanned by others to view the video, download it, or to share on social media.
Customise Instax prints with Image Modes, Design Frames, Stickers and more
The Instax Mini Link 2 app contains a variety of design elements that can be overlaid onto the selected image for a one-of-a-kind Instax instant print. Users can also use their finger to draw a picture on a photo; select the best artistic filters; or manually adjust brightness, contrast and the saturation of the image. If it’s difficult to choose between images, simply combine up to eight pictures into a single Instax print via the collage feature.
Finally, when printing users can choose between two image colour modes – Instax-Rich Mode for deep, enhanced colours or Instax-Natural Mode for a more original look.
In addition to smartphone compatibility, the Mini Link 2 is also compatible with the Fujifilm X-S10 mirrorless digital camera, allowing photographers to send their images directly from the camera to the printer. Other Fujifilm digital camera users can use the Fujifilm Camera Remote app to transfer image data directly to the Link 2’s app to produce prints.
The Instax mini Link 2 printer will be offered in Soft Pink, Clay White and Space Blue, and is expected to be available in South Africa at the end August 2022. The Link 2 is set to retail for a suggested R2 799 incl. VAT.
New Spray Art film introduced
Accompanying the launch of the Mini Link 2 will be the new Instax Mini Spray Art instant film, featuring a colourful rainbow spray design that reflects light. It’s the perfect complement to the Mini Link 2’s InstaxAiR feature, making any image pop with added colour.
This new film variety is also expected to be available in August, for a recommended R180 incl. VAT.
