Posted by Sophia Moor, Wednesday, 2nd September 2015 @ 6:42pm

  • Celebrity Adventurer Steve Backshall Creates Adventure Series with Competition Winners


    Steve Backshall, from the popular children’s show Deadly 60 and Big Blue Live, has teamed up with The Brave Bones Club to create a five-part online video series of dare-devilish adventures to encourage kids of the UK to embark on their own this summer and autumn. Parents of the UK are suffering from a lack of play-spiration and we are showing them some great ways to have adventures which cost next-to-nothing.

    Enlisting the help of six thrill-seeking explorers, the Brave Bones Club invited children aged between 8-11 years old to enter a very special competition and star in the series with the legendary Backshall.

    Episode One – ‘Super Shelters with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGwWlFpXdBQ

    Steve shows the kids how to build three very different shelters whether you’re trying to keep dry off the forest floor or pitching up in your living room. You’ll learn how to create an A-frame shelter using all natural materials, how to scope out a super spot for a hammock, and how to put up your very own tarpaulin.

    Episode Two – ‘Critter Cribs with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqG9bLMgbQI

    Steve teaches the adventurers how to build the ultimate critter crib. You'll learn about the top spots for birds, hottest hide-outs for hedgehogs, and how to build a natural den for lots of creepy crawlies.

    Episode Three – ‘Tracks and Signs with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id4Dk23tHnM

    Steve teaches the kids how to spot signs of animals in the wild. Whether it’s listening for birdsong; spotting tracks or finding furry friends hiding holes – there’s plenty of ways to work out where the critters of the forest have been hiding.

    Episode Four – ‘Treasure Hunting with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHWr0yTK924

    Steve hides three mystery hampers and our brave adventurers have to use their new skills in map reading to find them! You’ll learn top tips for surviving in the wild with just a trusty map and a compass.

    Episode Five – ‘Bug Bothering with Steve Backshall and the Brave Bones Club’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-exMrBlQzeo

    Steve shares three different methods for catching creepy crawlies of all shapes and sizes. You’ll learn how to bag yourself some butterflies using a net, how to perform the ultimate ‘bush whack’ and find out how to use a pooter.

    We are looking for bloggers to help share these brave adventures with their readers, with a signed Steve Backshall book for your family to enjoy!


    In addition, to engage with your readers, we are offering a Steve book and adventure goodies if you are interested in also hosting a competition prize on the post.

#WorldContinenceWeek 22nd-28th June 2015

Posted by Sam Edgley, Friday, 19th June 2015 @ 5:19pm

  • @Femifree_UK is supporting #WorldContinenceWeek (22-28 June), raising awareness of the ‘taboo’ health issue that affects 1 in 3 women in the UK.



    Watch and share to spread the word: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl5-Tk_CKYo

    Bladder weakness is so common, yet 60% of women suffering just ‘put up with it’ and 68% have never spoken to their  GP about it.

    Femifree research shows the impact this has on women’s lives: half of women are afraid to laugh out loud, 1 in 5 make excuses to avoid sex, and 56% avoid social occasions.

    Femifree is an advanced, non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence that strengthens and retrains the pelvic floor muscle. With Femifree, women will no longer have to ‘put up with’ the effects of urinary incontinence.

Average parent will spend an extra £166 PER CHILD in an attempt to entertain their children during half term

Posted by Sophia Moor, Tuesday, 26th May 2015 @ 12:05pm

  • ·         Each parent spends on average an extra £166 keeping their children entertained over half-term, with 3% spending as much as £500

    ·         26 per cent is spent on childcare or putting their children in camps/day activities

    ·         One in five parents admit they run out of inspiration to keep their children occupied over half-term and weekends

    ·         A third of parents (31 per cent) admit by 11am on Wednesday they run out of ideas and can’t think of anything else for their children to do.

    ·         A further quarter (26%) say that they run out of inspiration as soon as half-term starts

    The average parent will spend an extra £166 in an attempt to entertain their children during half term according to a new study. 63 per cent will fork out the money for extra food, while 26 per cent will feel pressured to pay for their children to take part in expensive activities such as holiday camps or childcare.

    The study commissioned by The Brave Bones Club, want to encourage parents to take advantage of free events in their local area, with our list of Top 20 low-cost activities to do as a family this half-term – voted by parents!

    To help inspire parents to spend more time having adventures with their children, Cheestrings & Yollies are partnering with adventurer Steve Backshall to encourage children to join The Brave Bones Club.  Developed to help grow kids’ confidence with essential life skills through play, Steve is launching a new campaign to bring ‘Playspiration’ in bundles in a bid to help parents out – and for those who are worried about cost Steve has lots of tips that cost absolutely nothing.

    Backshall says: “I’m really proud to be working with The Brave Bones Club to encourage kids and parents to play more. My own experiences of exploring my environment and creating adventure with family and friends played a huge part in my formative years, helping to build my skill set and confidence. That’s why I feel so passionately about bringing out the inner-adventurer in adults and kids alike.”

    Dr. Amanda Gummer, psychologist and founder of Fundamentally Children, adds: “Children really benefit from having both male and female role models engaging with them regularly and even more so when they are encouraging healthy, active play and giving their children a balanced play diet. Being adventurous from an early age helps children develop important skills that will last them throughout childhood and set them up for a healthy and successful adulthood. Skills such as risk assessment, communication, cooperation, problem solving, strategic thinking, negotiation, reliability, perseverance, and curiosity all compliment a sense of adventure and boost confidence, helping children face challenges and overcome them as they mature.”

    “The results from the Brave Bones study highlight that parents across the country are forking out a significant amount of money, solely to keep their children entertained during the half-term period. However, there are many free and local adventures that your kids can embark on. Parents can encourage children’s adventurous outdoor spirit with activities such as; wildlife treasure hunts, building dens and having fun in adventure playgrounds, allowing your children’s imaginations to run wild and help with their creative development.” 

    We are looking for bloggers to share the list with their readers, and encourage families to have their own fun-fuelled low-cost adventures this half-term.

    1.  Going to the park (60%)

1 in 3 women in the UK are affected by urinary incontinence

Posted by Sophia Moor, Tuesday, 5th May 2015 @ 2:53pm

  • The Femifree Lifestyle report reveals the shocking true impact of urinary incontinence on the lives of women in the UK. Key stats include:

    ·         A whopping 50% of women who suffer from urinary incontinence are afraid to laugh out loud in public

    ·         30% of women suffering from urinary incontinence admit they try to laugh less, with 48% feeling self-conscious when they laugh

    ·         68% of women who suffer from urinary incontinence have never consulted their GP

    ·         57% have never mentioned the condition to any of their friends and family

    ·         41% are completely unaware that treatments are available

    ·         1 in 5 women make excuses to get out of sex due to the issue

    ·         75% avoid group exercise

    We are looking for bloggers to stand up and show a united front, to be a voice to those who might be suffering in silence, that they are not alone and that the problem is very much a common one amongst women.
    The survey has been commissioned to celebrate the release of our product launched from Femifree – a new advanced technology device targeted to aid urinary incontinence. 

    Femifree is an innovative solution that treats the underlying cause of the problem – a completely new, non-invasive muscle stimulation device that gently strengthens the pelvic floor muscle for effective treatment of urinary incontinence. Clinically proven, Femifree is completely safe and easy to use in the comfort of your own home. With Femifree, women will no longer have to ‘put up with’ the negative effects of urinary incontinence. Now they can have the freedom to wear what they like, and the confidence to laugh out loud.
    We are looking for bloggers who can either relate to the issue and review the product, or who are just simply wanting to be a part of our cause and help spread the word, and break the silence of this taboo topic.
    As a thank-you for supporting the campaign, we are giving away cinema vouchers for you and a friend to have a girls night out and laugh out loud.  
    If this is something you would be interested in or would like to receive more information on, please contact Jasmin Hannington on jasmin.hannington@cirkle.com/ 01494 731778.
