I must officially be middle-aged, because my new favourite meal involves an estate car, a flask of tea, a packet of chocolate digestives, and a few snack-sized pork pies. That’s right, we’ve become a car picnic family! Only problem is we’re rubbish at it.
The Vaude Shuttle Premium is designed for serious walkers who want their kids to share their outdoor adventures. The feature spec is high and so is the price, so is it worth it?
Happy, crazy, funny, adventurous, unpredictable, daft as a brush, up for it. That’s my little boy Sonny, who turned one this week and has just given me the most ridiculously brilliant year of my life.

Stable, safe and packed with a mind-boggling number of useful features, the Osprey Poco AG lets us walk longer distances and explore more exciting places. And does the handy job of sending Sonny to sleep!
For a spring baby who spent his first six months enjoying glorious warm weather, the chilly autumn temperatures were a shock for Sonny. So this Spotty Otter down suit is a lifesaver!
